    HRH loves hers. She also has a favorite blue nubby nylabone and TBone made from hard rubber. She has a different nylabone, the green and tan type, that she mostly ignores. go figure.

    The antler I bought at the pet shop was an "end" that was pointy narrow - too slight for Bo the super chewer. When I buy these again, I'll get a fatter hunk, closer to the base where it's thicker. Bo immediately chewed the edge to get to the marrow and it created a nice little razor sharp edge that cut his cheek. I had to toss the antler. A waste. That antler wasn't cheap either.

    HRH probably just needs a matching outfit .... you should know that a young princess just has to be colour co-ordinated!!

    I know nothing about what to do with "fresh" antlers as I always buy mine. The only advice I would give is not to let your bully take them outside .... when that happens they disappear overnight. So I'm assuming there are other wildlife out there that like antlers just as much as bullys do!!

    I will have to try offering it when she is wearing her green ladybug fleece and see if it makes the difference

    Nope soaking it in beef broth did not help either. Macy is just not interested in deer antlers apparently.
