Today we went on a wine country adventure. When we go there, one thing mommy and daddy do is have a picnic. This involves all kinds of yummy-smelling people-food that they eat outdoors. Winkie and I are not supposed to get any. We're not even supposed to want any. But, unlike when mommy and daddy eat indoors, like at home, on a picnic they tie us to the table.
If I'm gonna be tied up to a table, I want what's up there! (Winkie doesn't care, he just curls up and naps!) So I pester daddy. (It's no use pestering mommy, don't even try it!) I paw at his legs, or I try to jump up in his lap or onto the table. Over the years, I've trained him to bribe me with doggy treats and chews. He has spent my whole life looking fur chews that will keep me occupied a l-o-o-o-n-g time, so he can eat his food!
He may have found it.
Mommy bought this thing she called a him-o-layin' chew. It's long and yellow and squarish. When daddy furst gave it to me I kind of sniffed at it, but I wasn't interested. I didn't know what it was. Daddy said, "Well, that's a failure." He gave me one of the chicken-y bone-ish thingies I've been getting fur awhile. But honestly, those are kinda boring. We just left the him-o-layin' thing laying in the grass.
Pretty soon I gave it another sniff, and then a lick. Hmmmmmm, this thing had pawsibilities. I tried to get a tooth on it, but it was really hard! Hmph. So I left it, but pretty soon I tried again. And the more I chewed at it, the more I liked it! Then just when I got one end kinda softened, it was time to go home and it got put away.
When we got home we got a small din-din, because of eating treats during the day. That's mommy's dumb idea. But then, daddy hauled out the him-o-layin' chew and gave it back to me! OMD!! I'm nevfur letting that thing out of my mouf again! I trotted all ovfur the house with it! I chewed it here, and I chewed it ovfur there, and then I jumped up on the couch with it--which I've nevfur done with ANY chew befure--and when I got tired and my eyelids started drooping it was still in my mouf. Mommy says my jaw will be sore in the morning, but I'm not dropping it! I'm gonna dream about it all night! ZZZZZZZzzzslrphzzzzzzmunchzzzz..........
Send me one a doz chews up here Hershey - gotta check it out. Sounds yummy plus!!! Ma's curious - what's da real name of the chew?
Sounds like it must be tasty!
We have heard of those things but never tried them. Kinda pricy if they don't last long, that's what Mommy is always thinkin about.
I say I am worth it!
Glad you like your yak chew thing!
I think I need to go and bark at growlmy about something....WOOF!
Maybe she can get me one fur my woofday!
Sounds so yummy and I love to chew, I get them whenevfur the peeps are eating...um to keep me occupied, BOL! Else I would be a begger-pup!
Wow, that chew sounds pawsome!
Jakie, mommy says to spell it "Himalayan." Zoe is right, they're made out of yak milk or cheese or something.
Zoe, all I can say is that I go through chews pretty fast, even "long lasting" ones. I gave this one a real good workovfur yesfurday afternoon and evening, and it isn't any smaller. All I did was to soften up the ends some. Even Winkie had it fur awhile! Of course, you may be a bigger chewer than we are, but I think your mommy ought to try it out. We got a fairly good price on Doggyloot.
Made outta yak milk or CHEEZ????? Say no more, Hershey!! *grabs his iBone and orders a case. Doorbell rings*
