I spent most of the weekend working on the calendar, so the pugs had lots of chewing time this weekend. They had nice new knucklebones to keep them busy while I worked, but their chewing reminded me of something I wanted to blog about awhile back.
Henry has a thing with compressed rawhide bones. Instead of just chewing them, he likes to peel the rawhide off in layers. Unfortunately, he is quite good at it too! As he peels away the layers, I take them away because they are what we call “choking hazards”.
Benjamin hates it when Henry unravels a rawhide bone. Benjamin’s preferred plan of attack is to get the bone so slobbery on an end that it pretty much turns to mush.
Depending on the size of the rawhide strip that Henry pulls off, we sometimes let Luna chew on it. Luna has such a tiny mouth that she couldn’t even come close to getting the larger pieces into her mouth. She will happily chew for hours on a piece of rawhide that we had to take away from Henry.
On a completely different note, how is everyone that was in Ike’s path doing? I hope everyone is OK.
