    Rawhides aren't 100% digestible and can cause intestinal blockage. No dogs really should chew them but it's especially bad for small dogs with tiny stomachs. You can try something called Flossies. They are all natural and I've heard them called "crack for dogs" lol. They can be 4 or 5 bucks each but if you use them sparingly it's not so bad.

  20. I found your blog from another reader's blog. I love it! I am a soon to be puppy raiser for Guide Dogs of Texas so this would be awesome to win! I became a follower and have passed along your contest on my blog. Can't wait to read more!!

  21. *WAVES* I am Shari! I liked over from Danielle's blog!

  22. Guess who is now a follower?


  23. Maxwell is the cutest little thing and I'm sure my little doxie wouldn't mind sharing the treats and stuff with the bigger dogs! :-D

    I too am a puppy raiser of assistance dogs, have raised two guide dogs in the past and am on my second service dog. Eva was trained as a service dog but was put out of the program for kidney failure so now is our loving pet. Charlie, our current puppy in training, is an 8.5 month old cream labradoodle. :-D

  24. Cassie,

    Truth be told, we're all addicts! Once you raise one puppy, you just have to raise more! Thank you so much for your kind words, puppy raising is a difficult journey and we all need encouragement and for that, I want to thank you! There is something special about seeing the potential in a puppy as it grows to become more then you can give them, to help someone more then they can help you. Of course, some of them choose to just become pets, but they are some of the best pets out there! :-D

  25. We think that Maxwell is very cute. We would like to enter your giveaway.
