Default Antlers

Just some info. I've seen Patty talk about how much Ali loves his antler I bought some for mine and the little dogs don't show much interest, but Toby is hysterical. I don't think its been out of his mouth since it came yesterday. He slept with it!! LOL For any of you who have dogs that love to chew, its great. He hasn't even put a dent in it.

On a side note on Toby, I've been taking him everywhere with me in the car to get use to the sounds and sights of the world. We stopped at a traffic light and he started to bark hysterically which was odd. He's been doing really well. When I looked out the window, one of the storefronts had a big scarecrow standing out of a big planter. LOL None of the folks he's met so far looked quite like that guy.

Chris was suspicious of all statues and anything else that looked like a human being but definitely wasn't!

Sure hope he never meets anyone who DOES look like a scarecrow!

I had my rottie (now gone) and Rowlf at a Nature Center about 7 years ago, walking the dogs. Rowlf suddenly stopped, crouched down, and started growling. There was no one anywhere near us, and I soon realized she was growling at a 12-foot bronze bear. Sam (the rottie) looked at her like she had completely lost her mind. - sheureka

I'm coming in late to this conversation but when I saw the title, I thought it was going to be about the deer who has holiday lights caught in his antlers!

Here's a thread that was started a while back on antlers http://www.k9diabetes.com/forum/show...ighlight=chews

Most important is to make sure they are naturally shed antlers. My favorite place has been www.crookedcreekantlerart.com . But we have a few places that sell them around my local area as well.

So, diabetic dogs can have Antler's as chews? We have been looking for something that Mickey can have as well as our other two dogs - and if he can, that would be great.

Oooh- glad I saw this! We have some antlers around here that the kids find when camping sometimes.

I also had to add- when our new pup came in one day after I had started decorating, the Christmas tree didn't faze her. The foot tall Santa that I put up on top of the entertainment center though- made her back away and then bark for a good 10 min. She still doesn't trust that guy. Izzie barks along just for the heck of it since she can't see anything.
