Hi. 😀 I’ve really been MIA lately, haven’t I? Sorry ’bout that. Life has been busy but I’m anxious to get back into the swing of things with the blog.
I think Teton is, as well.
Mom, you are so boooooooooring.
A while back I picked up a True Chews bully stick from a small local pet store in town. I’d never heard of the True Chews brand, but the product looked good and the price was right, so I snatched it up for a special treat to give to The Little Blogger.
Two bully sticks (er, barbells) for $3.99?! That’s a good price if I’ve ever seen one.
True Chews bully (and other) treats are “made” in Independence, Iowa. I say “made” because last I checked cow penis isn’t made so much as it’s…um…formed?
Anyhoo, yes folks, bully (or “pizzle” as some call it) is dried cow or bison junk. It sounds freakish, but it’s completely digestible and doesn’t stink or stain carpet. Most dogs love bully sticks and chewing them may assist with dental hygiene.
You may notice that the packaging on the Lil’s Beef Bully Barbells call out that this product is for dogs under 20 pounds. Teton is 41.2 pounds (to be exact) but he has always been a champ at chewing and very rarely swallows large pieces of chews, so I was comfortable purchasing these because of his chewing history and the fact that I always monitor him when he gets any type of chew.
You can see from the photo above that even though Teton is well over 20 pounds, the barbell was a decent size. It took him roughly 15 minutes to go through this chew, but I know that is a long time compared to some ferocious chewers out there! 😉
