    Default Dogs and Their Bones...arghhh!!!

    Now why is it that you can give your dog a nice feed of meaty bones, they'll eat nearly all of them, get down to half way through the last one and decide to leave it...in favour of the filthy, dirty one buried in the back garden????????????

    Geez, did she just remember where she had stashed it? Were her afternoon ones too fresh? Lol.

    Well fine! In future I'll just whack them around in the dirt a bit before popping them into her bowl, do you think?

    They smell better with extra minerals on.

    I made the mistake of burying one of Frosty's bones for later, and to encourage where she digs, and she did dig it up later and eating it made her very ill. Too much rotten meat on it not good for puppy tummy.

    So I reckon - do the dirt trick but if puppy not eating it within 5 minutes - it goes back in the freezer/fridge from whence it came.

    All my dogs have always favoured buried ones. I believe, like kids and overkill with antiseptics (so many allergies around) that we are just creating problems if we do not allow them to do what comes naturally in this respect. That we are overprotecting and breeding fussiness, allergies etc into our pets as we want them to do things by human standards.

    This is not in criticism of anyone here but only what I feel time and people are doing to them.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Oh I agree 100%, but couldn't she have just finished off that last little bit first. Bet she'll go and bury that last one now, and get it tomorrow and do the same thing. Lol.

    I agree with that comment in humans too actually Di. Society has this real obsession with cleanliness and no germs etc, and I don't know, half the time I think maybe that's what makes kids get sick a lot, because their immune system hasn't been built up?

    Hy??? Can you elaborate?

    Well I haven't fed frosty a bone for a while, because I'd have to sit with her while she ate it until she starts making splinters, and that could take a while.

    I have put dirt from the back yard on the bone and then given it to her. She seems to think this is ok.

    But if she decides she's not having the bone right now - I'm afraid I put it back in the fridge cos rotten bone gave her the runs. At least I think it was the bone.
