:wink: Teenie greenies! that's the name...they're about 2.75 inches long and perfect for Stinky & Smelly (for all chihuahuas for that matter). We got them at Woofstock as freebies but we've never actually seen them at stores and by what the package says they are not samples, they are for toy dogs 15lbs and under.

Are those the 'Greenies' I've read others on here talk about? I had never heard of them before finding this message board. I would have no idea where to buy them.

:wink: They sell them at petstores, Petsmart or Petco would have them. I think they are great (clean teeth, freshen breath) but it really depends on your dog, I've read that some can't stomach them..mine love them :D and this teenie size is an excelent idea, I usually give them petite. :wink:

I have seen those too and heard wonderful things about them. I even bought Lola two, but she doesn't like them for some reason...such the diva. :wink:

I have only given Chico a greenie once and boy did he love it! he loved it so much that when my cat tried to chew on it, chico jumped on him! :lol:

Chico got a little tiffed at me when i took it away from him because it was at the end and i didn't want him to choke on it.

i get those for chiwi. i have to say though, if your chi is a piggie and eats it real fast i suggest getting a larger one cause a tiny one can get broken easier and they may try to swallow a larg piece and choke. these are perfect for those that savor them lol, chiwi takes days nearly a week and a half to eat her greenie or her dental chew lol.

I used to get those for MIkey, they are the perfect size. I get the next size up for Kismet since she is a bit bigger. :)

:shock: I must have been under a rock, LOL. I've never seen them, lol, maybe they are all sold out when I get to the petstore or we just don't have them here..I haven't even seen them at Petsmart either.

FOR DOGS THAT EAT TOO FAST:
What I did for Stinky and Smelly to teach them not to gobble their food and choke on it was to use a small piece of treat or sausage. You call your doggy, make him sit and show him the treat, just show him first if he/she moves tell him to stay until he stays without moving when you show him the treat. If he/she does that praise him with the treat but DO NOT give it to him/her, let your doggy eat it out of your hand with you holding one end...the puppy will realize his food is not going anywhere and he won't eat fast enough to choke. It'll take time for him/her to realize it but I think is worth it. I rather spend 5 mins a day than having to take them to the emergency room. :wink:

:wave: hope that helps anybody.
