The greenies thing made me think of this....

Having spent nearly a fortune on treats and toys when Major was little, I suddenly remembered one day what my dad used to give his dogs- bones.  He would just go to the meat department at the grocery store and ask for the extra bones.  So I tried it one day.  You just go ask the guy at the meat department if they have any extra large bones.  Sometimes they sell them pre-packages as stew-bones or whatever with the other meats and you don't even need to ask.  Pork shoulders are pretty ideal.  So they give me like four big pork shoulders and it is like $1.99.  Major can work on one for a good week.   Besides him loving them and  keeping him entertained for a while, they are very good for his teeth.  Real bones clean dog teeth.  The biggest downside is if you don't have a garage or back yard for them to chew their bones on, it can get kinda gross.  Anyhow, I just thought I'd share for anyone who didn't know.  Next time you are at the store and walk by the meat department, why not give it a try?
