rib bones

I cooked a rack of very delicious pork ribs yesterday and finished off the leftovers today. I saved all the bones. I wanted to take them to Katie, the fertile Rottweiler, and her one remaining pup. Dogs LOVE rib bones, and I don't see a damn thing wrong with making friends with large dogs in the neighborhood.

I walked across the street and rang the doorbell. Nobody answered, so I headed off to the back yard to feed the dogs. I turned the corner of the house and almost ran into Henry. He damn near scared the shit out of me. He was taking a break from a carpentry job he was doing at the time, building a set of new countertops for the kitchen and bathroom of his house. Henry is a good jackleg carpenter.

I told him that I brought some scraps for the dogs and he told me to go ahead and feed them. I did. Katie knows me well by now but I'm glad that I also scored some points with her one remaining offspring. That mutt is going to be a BIG DOG.

Henry keeps the "pup" (who already weighs about 35 pounds) on a chain in the back yard. "That sumbitch digs like a backhoe," Henry said. "I can't keep him out of my garden and he'll chew up and eat anything he can find. I had to immobilize his ass." The dog made short work of the rib bones I fed him and whined for more. "That's the puppy in him," Henry said. "Like a woman, he whines when he doesn't get everything he wants."

Henry and I talked for a while and I agreed to help him move and install the new countertops tomorrow. Looks like I have a job for a change, even if Henry did ask if I could bring some beer when I came to help him.


"Like a woman, he whines when he doesn't get everything he wants."

I hope you set him straight and let him know that some women know what they want and just take it!! We let the men do the whimperin' and whinin' when it's all over!! *L*

Our closest neighbors have a Rott/Lab mix, and also keep it chained because the thing is an escape artist, as well as a backhoe.

Dogs dig when they are bored. The pup is probably bored because his litter mates are gone.

Maybe Henry should get off his ass and play with the dog a bit more.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that cooked rib bones, chicken bones, etc., can be very dangerous for dogs. They can splinter into tiny, needle-like pieces that cut up a dog's guts or caught in the throat or digestive tract. So, be a good friend, don't give bones!
