    I grab a bag of lamb offcuts from Woolworths.
    They are usually sitting in the chilled pet food section and are about $6 a bag.
    You get some really nice meaty bits in those, much meatier than you get from the dog bags at the butcher.

    bones - it's the 3am vomit sessions I don't appreciate. I don't think Frosty enjoys them either but it doesn't stop her from helping herself if we visit a friend's place that has bones. At least she makes finding them all easy.

    If I do get a bone for her (and I stand over her and take it away when she starts splintering them), I get soup bones or osso bucco bones. I never ever say they're bones for the dog. You have to pay GST on those, but not on soup bones, go figure.

    Thanks for the advice Kalacreek,

    Great, I'll pop by our butcher this week to get Snoopy some beef marrow bones and leg bones. Maybe I'll try chicken necks again, but last time he didn't seem to show any interest in them, though he might this time.

    Oh really? That's a really good idea, I never knew that they had them. Can get a bag next time I pop by Woolies. Think they'd sell them at Coles (closer to us) too, hopefully they do, it'd be really convenient.

    Never heard of the osso bucco bones before; not much of a meat and bone expert here .
    3am vomit sessions... doesn't sound too good!
    I'll keep an eye out for him when he tries his first bone. Hopefully he thinks its ok. I'll try refraining him from eating bones inside (wouldn't look good stained on a new white mat), he has a cheeky habit of enjoying his meal on it.

    I always give mine theirs outside, they make a heck of a mess with them if I let them eat them inside (learned that one the hard way!).

    same here, but for some unknown reason, he has a habit of dumping his food out his doggy door, following it and eating it outside, but this only applies to pig ears and some other things, unfortunately. :P
