or ... Thank goodness for chew bones!
Except on rainy days and the very coldest days, these yahoos spend all day long outside, playing themselves silly and exhausted. Good for them, good for us. On rainy days they get to come up on the screened in back porch, and on very cold days they spend most of the day inside, where they are prone to exremely rambunctious wrestling matches and bouncing off the walls.
That's when I break out the chew bones.
Yep, giving a dog a chew bone on a rainy day is like giving a little kid a coloring book and some crayons.
Only better, because the dogs don't color on the walls with their bones.
