One sided chewing preference?

Cider got a fully raw riblette today and ate it. Likes it a lot better than she used to last time we tried this. Looking for poultry necks and chicken wings, but I think I'm going to have to go to the lady in bowmanville who supplies raw for dogs...

One side of her mouth after three riblette strips is cleaner. Other side the tarter is slowly moving down her canine. Only noticed this yesterday..

Watching her eat closely today, I see she chooses to chew with the riblette hanging out of one side of her mouth primarily. No pain from the other side, gums look great, she just seems to prefer having it touch the floor and chew in that direction only..

Is she weird? Anyway to encourage more all out chewing, or maybe a different meat might do that?

Yeah, I think it's the way they hold it... Boo's a right chewer. :D
