    Hmm Ok Cathy Moon, it WAS a hoof! I decided to go on toy cleaning duty last night and it smelled so bad !! It was placed in the garbage receptacle this morning.. off it goes! (Don't tell Kos!)

    Aaron,

    First off, nice to have you back!! :P We missed ya on here.. I leave about 3 toys in his crate when I am gone.. WHen I come back he gets so excited that he strings them through the house.. I end up playing pick up with the toys and get so tired of stumbling on them that I put them all in the crate and then that's where he goes and chills.. hehe This is our daily routine. He's always happiest with his toys. There are a few that I don't trust him alone with so he usually just gets a plastic nylabone, kong, and a ball.

    LOL @ King eating croutons. I'de love to see Kosmo try them. I am not sure he'd even be able to eat it.. lol I invision him swatting it around the floor like a cat for an endless amount of time. I think he'd be too much of a chicken to actually eat it. :P King is sure one spoiled dog!! (We need an icon of a crown to insert here!) hehe

    No Kosmo is not spoiled at all Sara

    I don't know of a cavalier yet, that is not spoiled.

    He is so sweet, I can't wait to meet him.
    I have already told Dudley he knows what he has to teach him.
    Darby will teach him all the naughty things to do, not that Kosmo doesn't know any on his own. I might need to talk to Darby and let him know that Kosmo is just as naughty as him.

    Sara, I was going to ask your opinion as to whether a hoof is as good as a bully stick for a chew toy. My pups are going through the bullies, and that gets expensive. We cut them into 4 inch pieces and give each pup no more than 1 per day, but it really does add up! So the hoof is smelly, huh? Worse than a bully?

    Hi Cathy

    Ok so the cow hooves are much less expensive as you already know and Kosmo seemed to like it but there are a few problems with the hooves.. ..

    The first one is that he has had 2. The first was what you see in the picture and that managed to stay in one piece. The second one that he had made it to the garbage within 2 days because he chewed it and some pieces actually popped off!! I don't know if we got a sick cow or ? ? ?

    The second is that they are contraversial depending on who you ask. Different people always have different opinions. Taken from www.woodhavenlabs.com

    As for pig ears/snouts/cow snouts and cow hooves. There are two reasons for not using these, Salmonella (bad bacteria) and the fact that the ears/snouts will splinter and can puncture an intestine and the same is for the cow hooves. Frequently, vets are removing them because they cause an obstruction.
    I am not sure if there are more problems specifically with them but I guess it's an "enter at your own risk" sort of thing? I don't know good luck :P I think we will try to stick with something else just for the sake of our hardwood floors.. .. He would pick his hoof up, run across the hardwood floor and drop it.. of course leaving his little marks behind on the floor. . .

    He eats the booda bones and bullys pretty quickly too, but I don't know what else to get him beside rubber things that he can't destruct. I just bought him an orka teething stages toy and he had it gone within 24 hrs.

    If you find anything that works, lemme know please!

    Thanks for the hoof info! Geordie is a power chewer, so I will stay with the bully sticks for now. I'm always on the look out for something better, though!

    LOL at the toys My two have a huge toybox and they also got a new one each as a pressie for Mamma being away. I came home to find my lounge resembling a toy shop where they'd been playing with them and Geraint hadn't tidied up It was lovely to come home to

    lol Aaron, I can never tell!! I actually caught mr. avi slipping Kos a bite of rice krispies squares the other day so nothing would surprise me anymore!! Now I read "Kibble as crutons," I always seem to skip the important parts!! hehe :P I am sure King would love anything, if it's human food (if he's anything like Kosmo!!)

    Cathy,

    I am afraid I have a power chewer too!! He is such a chewer it's unbelievable. We will play fetch in the house for like a half an hour and when he gets tired of fetch he'll leave the ball and find something else to chew. I just think he likes to keep himself occupied.

    Donna,

    Nice to have you back!!! Lol as long as Geriant didn't treat the rest of the house as a toy shop and "forget" to tidy everywhere else up (like my brother) I am sure it was lovely. :P I am sure he had a wonderful time with your boys! Do you have pictures from your vacation?
