I looove those pictures of her! She is such a character!
She really went to town, and out of the blue too - she isn't normally a "chewy" dog. I laughed so hard I could hardly take the pictures (hence the crap quality).
You know, Tracy, I -tried- to tell her that, but she thinks the branches are just as good.
I think it stems from when we were at a dog-party, Betty fell in love wth a 90+lb mix of a friend, and since HE was chewing sticks.. SHE decided to chew sticks. Which she had never done, or showed interest in before.
LoL. This reminds me of a product I just spotted on Best Bully. They're called FetchStix and are basically sticks for your dogs to chew and play fetch with. 10 dollars for a pack of three. Apparently, every dog needs Vermont hardwood to satisfy his/her fetching needs. Maybe you ought to grab some more applewood branches and go into business for yourself.
