Bagel and Busters rating: 4 paws up! They loved it! The loved the smell, the taste and the feel of the bone. Its a softer bone, so its not going to take long for them to demolish, but they absoutally loved it. Even though I know most of your feeling about Purina, I say you should try this, at least once, and see how much your dog loves it! Just wanted to let you know the boys loved em.
