    I think my neighbours would complain if I left a dead cow in my yard.

    And I think Frosty would explode from eating too much.

    Actually I don't think I'd handle the smell either.

    Friends' weim catches and eats roos, also scavenges cow guts off a neighbouring property.

    Then she blows up like a balloon, and the farts are lethal! OMG it's disgusting.

    If the weimerana picks the wrong roo - it could disembowel the dog. And some of the big boy roos can get quite protective of their harems.

    Rotting cow - lethal farts - worried about dog's health. Can't be good.

    Most rural neighbours I know would shoot dogs that raid their property.

    Not my dog but pretty sure the neighbour would have shot her by now if he intended to. She lives around livestock and she's not aggressive toward them, just scavenges offal where the guy dumps it in a pit. I wouldn't let my dogs, but like I say she's not my dog.

    I give my puppy a large marrow bone cut down the middle during the day while I am out and when I come home I put the bone in the bin. When she was a young puppy I used to give her chicken necks and she would inhale them so I have thought she would inhale brisket bones. Maybe I will supervise her with brisket bones.

    The best bones for nutrients such as EFA's are raw chicken bones an pork bones. After that, either veal bones, lamb flaps and last beef marrow bones. The beef marrow are terrific teeth cleaners but as far as nutrients go they're not much chop due to being to old and hard. If you do feed beef marrow bones ,do not get the bones cut length wise as this exposes TOO MUCH fatty marrow which the dog will eat in one sitting and cause digestive upsets especially with the pancreas. Beef Marrow bones should be cut across the shaft of the bone so it takes days for the dog to get the marrow. That way there is no risk of tummy upsets.
