    If I could find a real bone that wasn't a greasy mess...

    My butcher gives me one or sometimes two huge rump bones for the dogs every Friday. I remove all the fat I possible can and render that down as dripping with an onion and some salt. Then I saw the bones up into more manageable sized pieces.

    There is no mess - the fat on the bones is sometimes pretty dry, depending on if he boned the animal out yesterday, this morning, or 3-4 days ago.

    You need a '24' (very fine) bladed hacksaw to get through the bones and it is hard work but it can be done and the end result is perfect teeth, even in very old dogs, although the kitchen looks like a grave-robber has been busy, as the dogs are loathe to part with even the oldest relic.

    When finally I manage to take the oldest specimens away, they go on the bonfire in the garden and once they have been through several fires (this is a big garden and we need one most weeks) they crush into powder with the back of a spade and go onto the compost heap - bonemeal ! Great for the garden - so there is no waste at all.

    I'm sure you can find a willing butcher, after all, he has to get rid of the bones somehow.



  • Miss Bliss received a puzzle similar as a get well gift.
    It has given her something to do during the long hours in the crate.
    The toy was designed in Sweden and made in China of (dog smart wood)!?
    I think it is a bamboo plastic. Anyway, it is removed from her crate once the goodies are gone. I don't trust anything that goes in a mouth, human or canine,
    that comes from China. Fortunately, I have been able to get all her gear,
    except for a harness I recently purchased that required altering.
    Back to bones. A lot of those greasy bones come from China. Beware

  • Love this thread. Taco is going through his teenage years and seems to have energy to burn at the minute ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I'm trying to come up with games for him. I have a puzzle very similar to the one in your picture @JENGOSMonkey and Taco loves it, but the more he plays with it, the better he gets and now only keeps him occupied for a few minues. I haven't tried an empty egg box yet, I like that idea.

    I also use a snuffle mat sometimes for kibble and it keeps Taco entertained for 20 mins or so. And any games that involve using his nose really tire him out! So like hiding treats around the house and making him find them. He does it with his toys too.

    I completely agree @Kembe; however, I might have been more exited if they'd mentioned Sabacc instead. No, Sabacc is not a Basenji, but it's a fun Star Wars game that's a bit like Poker, but completely different at the same time. Definitely a brain game. Logan won't play it with me darn it. He just wants to eat the Beskar betting pieces. It's the game Han Solo played against Lando Calrissian to win the Millennium Falcon, which is arguably THE best RV in the universe. My son and I play it. I wonder if I could win a Basenji in a game of Sabacc? ๐Ÿ˜

    Your Google translate skills are impressive!!


  • @elbrant
    I was born in Japan. I am half Japanese. Surprised Iโ€™d be utilizing my Japanese on the Basenji forum. Lol

    @jengosmonkey Dang, I didn't know that was a real game!!

    My kid and I went to Disneyland a while back and spent near two entire days just at Black Spire Outpost (aka Star Wars Land). We love it so much. That's when we scored a set of Sabacc cards. Didn't know it was a thing either till we saw the decks. We got to play a few hands with some cast members outside Ogga's Cantina, but the real treat was playing it inside the Cantina at one of the tables. We had a bunch of cast members crowded around us egging us on. Apparently there are tournaments and FaceBook groups dedicated to it. Anyway, here ya go...

  • @Kembe So, that's how you are multi-lingual! How many languages do you know?
