Review: Busy Buddy Bristle Bone

The girls were extremely excited to try this offering from Chewy.com: the Busy Buddy Bristle Bone.

Busy Buddy Bone review / Doggerel

This ingenious toy, devised for very heavy chewers (which both of our pups are), integrates thin, replaceable rawhide rings into the bone.

We got to try the large size, which currently sells for $14.95 at Chewy.com. As soon as I let them try out the one we received, I knew I’d have to buy another one. They were both very interested in the bone and possessive over it. I bought another one in our next Chewy order, and they have both really been enjoying themselves with this toy.

They did figure out how to unscrew one of the ends of the bones and remove the ring, however, so I’d suggest that this is a toy for supervised play time.

Eden went to the vet for her annual checkup just last week, and the vet tech, whose opinion we treat like gold, actually recommended this toy to us. Eden was developing some buildup on her molars, and the vet tech said she really liked this toy for keeping the plaque at bay.

We’re all very pleased with this bristle bone! It’s always a pleasure to discover a new toy that can stand up to these heavy-duty shepherd mouths.

Hanging out in the backyard

Just some recent photos of Pyrrha hanging out in the backyard.

Pyrrha’s favorite backyard activities:

  • Patrolling the perimeter for the neighbor dogs (on both sides of our fence)
  • Chasing butterflies, moths, and bees
  • Getting a case of the “zoomies” when she thinks we’re not watching
  • Digging little holes like a gopher
  • Gnawing on that nasty old bone

What does your pup like to do in your yard?
