I think I'm getting my first bully stick tomorrow!! And yes, they are penises... I looked 'em up on some webpages just to be sure ;p because Grandmaw didn't believe it at first... now she's saying I can't have one because of what they are.

But Mommy's getting me one tomorrow because she doesn't care. She thinks it's funny what they are, of course, but it doesn't bother her as long as she doesn't have to be the one eating them!! Plus they are healthy, and they help clean pups' teethies!

Oh Duchess! Tomorrow is sure to be a glorious day for you!! I'm so glad your mom decided to get you a bully stick regardless of what your grandmaw says!

Considering that us dogs will eat our own poo, other dogs poo, cat poo, horse poo, dead rodents, dead frogs, stuff we find on the street that we don't know the identity of just to find out what it is, dirt, grass, etc etc ... a cleaned, dried, stretched bully stick doesn't sound that bad! And understanding that the majority of those bully sticks actually come from steers anyways, means that they were never used as a copulatory organ ... so I don't get what the big deal is big grin

Enjoy! I can't wait to hear what you thought of them! And remember, if you don't like it I will be glad to take it off your paws for ya BOL!

I have bully sticks all the time. When I'm bored, I'll go over to my bully stick and chew on it. My mom gets them from the pet specialty store where she also gets my kibble, raw meaty bones, and everything else.

Well I finally broke down today and bought two expensive bully sticks for my pups....and altho they appeared to LOVE them....Dallas loved them a little TOO much. He literally had a 6 inch one halfway gone in 4 minutes. I had to take it away from him b/c he was going to swallow that last half in one gulp! Lilly lasted only slightly longer with her bully stick. I guess they just aren't meant for my big chewers.

Instead I'll stick with my stuffed marrow bones and kongs....but thanks everyone for giving me so many good tips! I wish my dogs ate them properly but they are just vaccuumes!!

Mom's home!! Mom's home!! Woof!! She brought me a Bully Stick!! It's a HUGE 30 inch bully stick!! I am SO excited!! I smelled it and I LOVE IT! I want it now!! She said she might cut it in half because of how long it is... I think she's gonna open it now!! I hope so!! I really, really, really hope so!! Woof!! This is the best day ever!!

I am still chewing on my bully stick!! Mommy is so thrilled that I am taking my time with it. I've been chewing on it at least half an hour and have made only a little progress on it. She has been taking lots of pictures of me and she even took a video of me chewing! Yay! This is one of the bestest days of my life!

Hmmmmm....Rhys, Tess, and I have never had one of these "bully sticks". Mommy says "ewwww" but you pups seem to love them!

Maybe we can bat our eyes and get her to buy us some.

I chewed on my bully stick for around 3 hours yesterday. Because it was so long, Mom decided to saw it in half. So we made two 15 inch bully sticks from a 30 inch! Yay! Twice as many bully sticks for me smile

Even though I chewed for 3 hours, I only ate about 3-4 inches of the bully stick. So I still have about a foot left of the first one! So... yummy. I think Mom's going to add some of my bully stick pictures to my page now smile

We're new to bullysticks, too - just got our first one for Piper last week. She LOVES the darn things. They have helped with her "inappropriate chewing" and REALLY helped her teeth look cleaner already.

She never finishes one in on chew session (it would take her 48 hours of straight chewing with that little mouth). Should we be refrigerating them after she's started knawing on them?
