I used to buy Bear a store brand rawhide (he likes the long skinny ones, shaped like a short pencil). Anyway, he loves these things, they are his passion. I would give him one a night and he thoroughly enjoyed it - kind of like a smoker having that cig after dinner thing. Anyway, I stopped buying them because they must've started making them cheaper or something because I became concerned because they were like shattering in his mouth and he would kind of act like it hurt him. I think they were like splintering or something. It scared me. But now I feel bad for him because he loved them so much. Is there a good rawhide out there? He has no interest in the big ones, he likes just the long thin ones.
