givin' the dog a bone!

My 3 dogs are HUGE marrow bone fans. I keep them frozen so they last longer for the dog. The ones I get at the grocery store, (that keeps them in stock just for me!!) are about 4-6 to a small styro flat, prefrozen and about 2" thick and 3" across. I try to avoid any bones that have smaller bones attached to them and just look for solid one-piece bones, to avoid any possiblility of choking or splintering.
After the dogs have cleaned out the marrow, I will wash the bones if they are suitable and stuff them with peanut butter and refreeze them for yet another snack, or for when I forget to buy fresh marrow bones. At least they have something to chew on in a pinch.
