Last week while Mom stopped at the Pet Store to pick up a bag of Kibble, she decided to grab an extra Deer Antler Gnaw. Pennie and I still have one almost intact Deer Antler left from Christmas, but chewed through the other one, and then chewed almost through a replacement Gnaw. Mom is not sure why the Un-Gnawed Gnaw is not a favorite. I won't tell her. Perhaps that deer was just not as flavorful.
Anyhoodles, the New Gnaw stayed in the mini-van for some reason, along with an alto saxophone, saxophone music, piano music, two winter coats, an old coffee travel mug, the belt parts that Oldest Lad left when he got a new belt over Christmas, etc.
I suppose I should just be thankful the New Gnaw made it into the house at last.
When Mom went up to bed, I grabbed the New Gnaw, Pennie immediately took it from me, and we went up to bed. Pennie gnawed for a short time, and then I grabbed the Gnaw and settled in for a long, grinding Gnaw.
Mom took the Gnaw away from me. Yes. She said that she did not mind if I was going to Gnaw for a little while, but I had obviously set myself in for a long night of Gnawing, and Mom wanted to go to sleep.
First Mom just put the Gnaw in her hand, up at the top of the bed. She soon felt me tugging it out from her hand, so she put the Gnaw under her pillow.
This is what I think: Mom put the Gnaw under her pillow so that she could Gnaw on it herself, in secret. She has been known to hide in the bathroom when she has some particularly delectable bit of high-end chocolate that she doesn't want to share with her offspring.
I think Mom was hiding the Gnaw and Gnawing on it. No wonder Mom needs dental work -- she keeps blaming it on her parents, who did not provide her with braces, despite her desperate need for them. But I, Queen Sophine, have discovered that Mom likes to Gnaw on Deer Antlers, and her teeth are just not up to the task.

I am in need of a new Antler. The one Jarvis left for me is dwindling.... Would you be so kind as to share where you found it. My Mom has had no luck...
P.S. Maybe you don't like the other Gnaw because it has Mom Spit on it?!
Mom gets our food and supplies from Family Pet Center on Clough Pike.
Here is the web site
It is a locally owned business; one of the groomers used to be a neighbor before we moved.
