Pip's Scientific Review of Himalayan Dog Chew

Allo everyone! Pip here. I was recently adopted from Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue. I am good friends with Shaddy and Maverick over at Dawgdom. I like Sadie too, but I don’t think the feeling is mutual… yet, anyway. The shop has asked if I would sample one of their newest and most exciting products:

The Himalayan Dog Chew!!!!

I was very excited when the store got these in. My mum has heard so much about them and our greyhound friends Angel and River already gave them the dewclaws up. I couldn’t wait to try one! Himalayan Dog Chews are a special kind of preserved cheese. They are made from yak and cow’s milk, a little salt and a little lime juice. They are all natural and have no chemicals or preservatives (I don’t really care about stuff like that, but my mum does so I thought I would mention it.)

Boy that dog on the package sure does look happy!

Here’s what it looks like out of the package. Please forgive the state of my mum’s fingernails.

Come on, give it already! Let the scientific testing begin...

Nom, nom, nom...

This is what it looked like after a half hour of steady chewing. I’m about a medium chewer.

Not bad, but more tests must be run!
Nom, nom, nom…

Here’s what it looked like after an hour of chewing. I just didn’t want to stop!

So after an hour mum took it away so I could have some more tomorrow. I really can’t wait. I have to say that this treat is everything a dog could want. It tastes great. It does have an odor but not a strong one. It smells faintly like smoked cheese. It does not appear to stain paws or dog beds so it’s probably safe on carpets. The best thing about it is that even though it’s edible it lasts a pretty long time! You just chew on the ends to soften it and little chunks of cheese will eventually come off. Mmmm! They last as long as small rawhides and are much healthier.

So, Himalayan Dog Chew, you get a 5 SPOT rating from me. Congrats!

This is Pip saying, “Cheerio!”

So, I was so tired last night I couldn't even introduce myself or say what I am planning to do. It took me a really long time to set up this whole thing, so instead of blogging I went to sleeps. Now I'm up and ready to get going. I'm Shaddy, the newest addition to Dawgdom's family. I was living at a rescue group down state for a while and then they closed down. The nice peoples at Catskill Humane Society picked me up and I lived with them for a few months. During the day I was able to greet all the shelter visitors cause they let me stay up at the reception area. My shelter friends were afraid that no one would come for me cause I am 13 and a little stiff in the legs. Sara and Dave heard my story and picked me up the other week. I was really nervous at first, but I am easing my way into it now and getting more comfortable everyday. There are two dogs at their house, Sadie and Maverick who aren't bad. Sadie keeps to herself with me. Maverick is a hyper youngster who I am not sure of just yet.

I want to come to the store sometime so I can greet all the peoples, but I get real nervous in the car. I am going to try and work on that. So, since I am not coming in just yet I wanted to keep busy. You know, it keeps ya young. I thought I would start a blog. I hope to blog about all sorts of things - Dog issues, personal things, and hopefully fun things too. I hope some of my new friends will add things too.

I added this photo from yesterday. It is from when I discovered the comfort of the couch. Oh boy! I LOVE IT.
