My Smokey Secret

Mom revealed my surprise to me today - the one she bought on our errand run a few days ago at Thyme and Season! It's a smokey bone and boy does it ever smell good! Even mom took a sniff and asked for a bite! hehehe - yeah sure mom!
I'm used to getting raw bones that are all greasy and gooey and yummy but this one is different and it's sure good! You can see the wet spot underneat the bone. I'm working real hard at getting off that yummy smokey coating.
By now I've spent a good two hours gnawing away at this thing. Mom happens to walk by at this point and looks down to see how I'm making out and discovers this - oh no! Broken right in half! That was the end of smokey bone! Into the garbage it went! Mom could only imagine bone splinter fragments down my throat and the evil woman tossed my special treat into the trash can! Shoot! I could have kept going on it for at least another 2 hours! I guess mom knows best in this case!

Till next time...................

Love ya lots,

Hey Maggie,
Good thing your Mama threw the broken bone away. We would hate to have you swallow a big piece & it get stuck in side of you. That would not be fun at all. Mama was wondering if your bully sticks were the Red Barn ones? and are your's smoked? She found some on the web that were not smoked. Liberty told us she gets the Merrick brand sticks. Decisions, decisions, sigh.....Have a great Sunday!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Aw, sorry you missed out on finishing that bone, Maggie, but it was good that your mommy threw it away. Better to not finish a bone than have to go to the awful vet for an operation!

Sophie Brador said...

Maggie, The same thing happens when Sophie gets the smoked ones. Too dangerous. She has to suffer with those boring old raw ones. Which reminds me. Today is a good day for bone for the beast.

Schniblet said...

My mum does he same darn thing! Right at the moment when the bone just couldn't be ANY better and BANG! She takes it away! I know just how you feel!

...sweet saidie... said...

That bone looks delicious. I'd be mad if my mom threw that bone away too!!

Although, she thows away stuffies once I have dissected them, but new ones appear. Maybe this means you are getting another new bone!


Nanook The Newfoundland said...

The Airechicks said...


Those bones look so GOOD....We told Mom she's on the hunt for bones for us ....


Billy said...

Dear Maggie,

So glad your mom found this in time, you could have been really hurt! But they do look as good as my special cookies.

Hugs from Billy Boo:)

Jasper said...

Mmm that smokey meat looks delish!! My mean mom won't let me eat those snacks because of my boring diet :( At least it's fun to see my friends enjoying their food :)


Huskee Boy said...
