To be honest I heard so many net stories over the years, Pro and con.

 

I take my vets and friends opinion on antler safety. If the gums don’t bleed, teeth don’t crack see no reason not to feed antlers.

 

Besides between deer and moose antlers, it’s more of a gnaw than chew deal.

 

My Rott/Lab and Shep/Lab Mixes both dragged home a Moose Shed perhaps 3 foot across, and never got much further than the points of rack in 6 years of gnawing.

 

Have pix of both of them somewhere , packed no doubt. Same length as both dogs.

 If really grimy might clean by boiling for a bit, but tends to make them spongy.

Just hit me like bricks - Kong lasted through 9 dogs, this ms shredded. If she munches it, it’s shredded

 

She found an old shed antler off deer, and is presently going to town on it.

 

She’ll be susceptible to reinfection for worms, for 2 years. Med’s still daily, and heartworm, etc. through winter or until really cold weather -20*’s.

 

At least there aren’t wrigglers any more seem to be controlled by heartworm med’s, with hookworm.

 

The mistress has spoken time for a walk and another rug cleaning just for fun.

Good morning everyone on the Front Porch! May you all have a restful weekend. 

Yesterday morning was an OK time for golf with high humidity and my game was so so. We had two thunderstorms in the afternoon so the lawn is still waiting to be harvested.

80* and a breeze, waiting for grass to dry it poured last night.

 

@n566192l

 

Checked the chart for sizing @ petco for good2go.

 

Chells necksize is 18 1/2” which makes her an XLarge vest size.

 

Her breed is Dutch Shepherd larger than Sheltie and still growing at 63 lb’s. Worms are still being handled, stubborn buggers.

 

If you’ve ever seen a Malinois they’re the equivalent in size. Only major difference between the 2 breeds is Mal’s have an off switch. Dutchies no such luck😇.

 

Have had 4 rescues DS, I think I’m stuck on the breed. 

 

She chewed through her Canine Equipment collar last night, little 2 loose. Presently wearing my old Rottweiler/Lab’s collar.

 

She likes Bully Sticks, good for a few minutes. Yak cheese, yes she is spoiled.Something with resistance for her to chew on, she finally destroyed a 9 dog heavy nylon chew toy, drawing blank on name. Used to stuff with PB, Koosh maybe?

 

Clocked on radar 50 mph top speed, never tires.

Believe it or not the weather here in NW Georgia is cooler  than in Maine!  We are in the high 80s most days, bitofrain last night and it felt nice and (comparatively) cool this morning at 69 degrees.  Oppressive yesterday evening though.  I could have used that cooling vest for myself  Woman Very Happy.Dogs are not overly bothered by the heat this summer.

Your pup sounds so special, all 🐶 really do have their own personality.  They keep us laughing and smiling though out our lives. I found a large vest,  back length 17, girth 21 to 24 inches.  Says for a Sheltie , the XL seems way to large. Company is Good 2Go. Please advise which one I should mail out.  Also, favorite treats.  I will send out a care package.  MS. C  needs some love from the Aarp community . Nancy
