The Antler Chew Bandent

The CRIME... tampering with mail from the United States Postal Service.

This was clearly not addressed to Winnie.
The DEFENDANT... Winnie Boadicea Petunia Matilda Gizmo Simons.

Who?  Me? 
Yes, you.  This is exactly how it happened.  I was expecting several small packages one of which was one of those tasty antler chews that Kelly from Corgi Butts told us about.  This morning, I went to fetch yesterdays mail from the box and two of the packages arrived.  Without much care I tossed the mail onto the kitchen table and when upstairs to shower and start the day.  When I step out of the bathroom what do I see?  THIS...

You got it.  Did you hear me say anything about opening the package?  Nope.  Winnie did it herself.  That little stinker got on my table, picked out the package with the antler chew in it and helped herself.  Are you kidding me?  She has never done anything like that before.  I was totally dumbfounded.  Do you punish that somehow?  I have no idea.  So I just cleaned up the packaging still on the floor and left it alone. 

On the other hand the antler looks REALLY cool.

Winnie is a smart gal!

If you think she likes these antlers, next time order Moose antlers. They are just a bit softer, usually cut in rectanular slabs. Just be sure to wait til she's done with the deer antler. I made the mistake of giving Jimmy a Moose antler before he finished off the deer antlers, and now he won't touch them. It just has to be Moose!

Taryn - I never thought of Moose. Where do tou get them?

Recently I have been able to get them from the dog food store (not a big chain, a small retailer of all natural dog products) but I have purchased from here: and also here: .

When the antler gets chewed down to a size that could be swallowed in one big gulp, be sure to throw it away and start a new one.

Good advice for sure. Thanks, Taryn.
