We did a tip run this morning and after popping into the bank to see if our previous broadband supplier had credited us (they haven’t and nothing is pending so we shall go again on Friday and cancel the direct debit anyway as we just want shut of them), I went into the butcher to get Maya a bone.
They didn’t have any, but the young lad was carving up half a cow and the head butcher said to cut the bone out for us.
OMG. Hubby and Maya were in the doorway and her eyes were fixed on the counter.
I said it was too big as she was only a pup so they sawed it in half and gave us all of it.
It weighed a ton and Maya was all over me.
When we got home, we looked into the bag which contained two huge bones.
Hubby managed to saw one in half so she was given the smaller piece (on the left) and I’ve frozen the other.
She demolished it all………… yep, the lot.
Five minutes after this picture was taken, that nub too had gone. I was so anxious, I rang her breeder to check it was OK for her to eat the bone itself! She said not to worry, just check her motions and if they were too white, cut back on the bones! We only give her them once in a while anyway as a special treat.
As for the other bit:
It was too big to give her all at once and Hubby couldn’t break it, even with a sledgehammer, so he stripped off all the meat, dug out a lot of the marrow and put that in with her dinner for later. Sadly I couldn’t make enough room in my small freezer for the rest, so we’ve had to bin it.
