    THanks for the responses guys- as far as him ingesting something you never really can be 100% sure but we watch them pretty intently when we are home and he is crated when we aren't home.

    I'm also in the market for couches and the sets I'm looking at are either 100% polyester or a polyester/cotton blend- how will these hold up to the bullies? Will the hair stay embedded? Will drool clean easily? Any advice is appreciated. As far as leather goes the sofas I'm looking at would cost...

    Beef allergy

    I have heard that keeping a dog on te same protein with no variety for an extended period of time can ultimately lead to a sensitivity- the reason I ask is because duke and duchess have been back on raw for about 4 months now- after a stint on kibble which didn't go well- so they were on raw...
