Occasionally I’ll give my dogs a nice big bone. This is the thigh bone of an ostrich.
At first it looked as though Little Monkey didn’t know quite what to do with it!
“It smells great, but what do I do with it?”
Note the paw in the air (anxiety) and the tongue (Yum!).
However, she soon got the hang of it; using her paw to claim her food and keep it from running away!
Eventually she realised it wasn’t going anywhere and, surprisingly, no-one else wanted any!
So she settled down to gnaw to her heart’s content.
