This weeks theme is Heavy
I should have looked at what the Photo Hunter theme was before I posted that last photo!
We bought our puppy a large beef bone (roasted bone?) about two weeks ago.
We were desperately looking for something that would be safe for her to chew that wouldn’t end up breaking into little pieces quickly. Labs are real chewers and I guess they must have strong jaws and teeth as it seems they can go through just about anything very quickly! The only toys were buy her these days are nylabone – a tough plastic – or ones that are made of very thick heavy rubber.
She loved the bone! You can see here that it’s more than half the length of her body!
I’m not sure how heavy it is (or was) but I’d guess that it was at least 8 lb when we purchased it. There isn’t much missing yet so it’s probably still close to that weight. Our puppy’s last vet visit was at the beginning of January and she’d only just reached 20 lb at that time. I doubt she’s even 30 lb now, so the bone is probably close to a third of her weight. It’s heavy!
She tries to pick it up every once in a while, but she doesn’t get too far! Mostly she just drags it around when she wants to move it. She has however managed to pick it up a few times and get on the couch with it. That’s a wasted effort though as we don’t want her chewing a bone on the couch.
It sure keeps her occupied! Before we got her the bone she was quite the attention hog, but now she’ll noisily chew on her bone for hours at a time. If it weren’t for the grinding grating noise (especially when she’s got the bone on the floor instead of on her doggy bed) it would be almost peaceful around here.
