    I have a no bully sticks rule here because Bo can't just chew them, he has to try to EAT them, in giant, huge chunks. Bea chokes easily so it's just better for everyone if we don't have them.
    Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. I threw them away after their first chew on them. They made a bigger mess than a rawhide bone would. I had to dig compressed rawhides out of my older dog's mouth too many times over the years. I never let him chew on those without my watching him. I have since banned them forever.

    Here's a picture of the mess the Bullie Stick made. It was gross!

    I didn't even think to check at Carolina Pet Panty. I will check them out for sure as I want to order a few more for presents. I can't believe I forget about them.

    GOOD NEWS! My pet store lady might be kind of a ding bat but SHE STOCKS ANTLERS! Oh yes. I bought just one giant one - to the tune of 23 dollars *gasp* and these two have been playing with it non-stop - and so I will go back and get a second one. Yes: even Bea is interested in the antler! (Of course, knowing her, I'll get one for her and she'll immediately go focus on something else from the toy box. She's a curmudgeon.)

    I find MOST pet store ladies are a bit dingy..but they DO have big hearts!! Yup..you will need a second antler..but just know..they will probably BOTH want the same one!

    Carolina Pet Pantry is a sponsor of EBN.
    What that means is that @desertskybulldogs get financial support from them for purchases we make with them. Every little bit helps keep EBN running.

    I'm not disparaging "dingy" - hey, even I've been dingy once or twice in my life (kidding) but yesterday, the only reason I got the NV salmon food I ordered because another bag of NVI salmon and rice came in and I was willing to take it anyway. Nice lady but seriously, yesterday she and I had the EXACT SAME CONVERSATION we've had at least a half dozen times; "What kind of dog do you have?" Answer: "I have two English Bulldogs". When I go back in there to get another antler today, she and I will have that conversation again too. Betcha.

    Jake was right on the money. It matters not how many antlers I have laying about these two will fight over the same one. The current antler of interest is literally chewed down to a nub and STILL they both want it. Soon as one of the dogs gets up from it the other comes tromping over and gives it a go.
    I ended up getting a section of cow leg bone and Pepper enjoys the heck out of it. AND of course since she enjoys it the other dog wants it.

    @Victor Y - You are so right! hahahahaha So funny.

    I've learned that the antler is fun but the cow bone with the "peanut butter" goo inside is favored over the antler at the present time. Bo seems to be an obsessive compulsive chewer. He chomps that cowbone into dust. Whatever's in there can't be good for them - I think of it like "doggie junk food" - so I limit their time with them (each has one). I was hoping the antler would trump the junk food bone... not so. I think part of the problem is the size of the antler. It looked so big in the store but looking at everyone's pictures here, this one is small in comparison. That woman's mark up must be 500%..... LOL

    The deer antler are smaller. If it is size you want then you want to get Elk antler. Deer antler is harder and not as porous as Elk , so its a bit of a trade off
