    Default First bully stick!

    After reading a bunch of posts on here about how great bully sticks are, I had to let Butters have a try. He LOVED this treat and it lasted 45 minutes! I took a bunch of pictures of him thoroughly enjoying it. Next time I will have to try the pony tail trick on the ears, though. His ears got so smelly that he needed a bath! But, I am so thankful to everyone who recommended them on this board because bully sticks now are his favorite chew

    It is actually kind of gross, but it is a low calorie and healthy chew that dogs love. It is a dried up bull "pizzle" or bull penis. My husband and I literally LOL'ed when he found out, which happened to be after Butters had finished the chew. Historically, bull pizzle has been used to make walking canes, medicinal powders, and is still eaten by some people raw and cooked around the world. Reading that made me feel better about the whole idea

    First off, Butters is so sweet! The shots are fantastic too.

    Secondly,
    Historically, bull pizzle has been used to make walking canes, medicinal powders, and is still eaten by some people raw and cooked around the world.
    I actually ate this in China my first time there before I knew what it was. They don't dry it before you eat it. They can cut it so it looks like a beautiful flower, believe it or not!


    People in other countries do not always have the luxury of discarding tons of animal parts as we do. They use the whole animal, which I believe is more kind. Organ meats, particularly liver, are full of vitamins. If you're starving, you eat what's available.

    Paddy wack looks to be something different, but a similar idea. The ingredients online say it is dehydrated buffalo neck meat. I think bully sticks are sold in the UK, but I am sure someone else on the forum can verify that

    He is absolutely stunning! I will have to look around and see if they sell them in Australia.
