I'll bet your dogs loved your for that! If I have one of those rawhide things for my dogs once in a while, they can spend a long time chewing...and get their whiskers all gummy.

Woo Hoo!

(You should see the bones the wolf hounds get...I think they're cow hip bones, or something like that.)

Hannah said...

How easy it is to please dogs, you are good doggie mommy. You don't seem to have any trouble makers that want to steal someone else's bone.

Jeanne said...

Know your dogs are loving their treats! And so happy that spring is just around the corner

Brian King said...

Nice! I've never met a dog that didn't like a ham bone!

thepoodleanddogblog said...

When I give my dogs something like this, my sweet pups turn into evil wolves to protect their treasure.

Gert said...

Oh, you're too funny! I bet they all played nice with a bone of their own! Lol

Helma said...

Mjammie ........ they are spoiled with these soft chews!

Rose said...

I wonder do they try to trick each other and still the others bones, while keeping their own? We used to laugh at Sheba and Keesha trying to achieve that goal.
