Yum! I love seeing dogs tucking into bones. It just feels so 'right'! I kick Rufus out in the garden with his bone - I've not been brave enough to allow him inside with one yet! He missed out yesterday as just as I was about to get the bones out we had the most enormous thunderstorm. Today has been a bone day. :)
Millie looks like she's really enjoying her bone.

Have you ever tried them with bones Mandy? I would think that it was unlikely that a bone would upset even a sensitive stomach.

:D The white rug is her vet bed. I have a couple scattered round the house. She likes to take a lot of her toys and treats to the bed. Its her territory.

Rosie has the most ridiculously sensitive tummy, but bones never seem to upset her. I gave her quite a few straight after being spayed to give her something to concentrate on instead of the stitches. My thinking was that, given people on here have warned about too many bones causing constipation, they might actually help!!!

You've done well to get her to choose her own bed for that. I have several beds for Dylan scattered around the house but he decided that his "Bone Den" was going to be my new cream shag pile rug. It's now neither cream nor mine :(

lol it was when eating a bone that Delta pulled out two stiches on her leg(dew claws removed at the same time a spaying) i took her come off so she could realy go at the bone. but i was tatching the tv instead of her and she decided chewing her leg was more interesting. silly girl.

but yeah bones are fab for them, just make sure they know that you can take it off them at any time you want and they dont have a choice. bones are very high value treats and can tun the most placid dog into a growling beast. thats why i spend time with them on their first bones so i can play with it and make them sit and watch it then let them have it again, then take it off them.

wit my lot i even switch bones about so they know who is letting them have the bones. Delta doesnt like giving them up. but she is getting better and doesnt growl just holds onto it the little minx.
