Reading that made me feel better about the whole idea

    Hmmmmm wonder how someone came up with that idea????? Hey let's dry a bull's penis and see what it can be good for? Ok..... sorry I turned into a 14 year old boy with this comment but........just tells a little too much about what I find funny.

    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.

    Oh sorry meant no disrespect. I honestly agree with using the whole animal. But I could not help myself from making a bull penis joke.

    I have looked at the snoods, BrooklynMom, and I think I will have to get him one for his ears Great recommendation! And, MishathePooh, I was wondering how that would be served when I was reading about it. That is cool it is served in the shape of a flower in China!

    Glad you liked the snoods! Brooky has the teal one with gold stars on it, and I have to say...it looks gorgeous on her!

    Whenever Sophie has a rawhide chew or bully stick, she has to wear her snood. It really helps.

    I buy mine from http://stores.ebay.com.au/Natural-Pet-Australia (for other Aussies), as I found alot of the store bought bullies
    were imported. I buy our Jessie's treats from them too, the kangaroo lung drives him bonkers and they are all natural.

    We stick with roo and duck for all his treats and bullies as chews now. They are all practically fat free, his coat is super silky
    and shiny but he's body shape is changing from that chunky puppy to a lean and athletic adult.
