Moo Tubes & Bully Sticks!

The big brown van came yesterday and left a box for me and Banjo on the front porch. Mom brought it in and this is what happened...

Mom wanted me to let you know the moo tubes only smelled bad when the plastic bag was first opened. And if you don't keep them in an airtight container they won't stink at all. If you don't already know, moo tubes are beef trachea and are sometimes called “moo-tubes” or “windies”. You can get them hollow or with a filling. They come in various sizes, from 3" up to 12". We got the 3" ones. Moo tubes are high in both chondroitin and glucosamine, which are effective in promoting healthy joints in dogs. And unlike rawhide, moo tubes and bully sticks are completely digestible.

I carried my moo tube around for about 15 minutes before I settled down to chew on it. I ate it all gone in about an hour. Banjo stopped chewing on his after an hour or so, then mom put it up so I couldn't get it. I highly recommend these yummy treats to any dog that loves to chew!

I don't know where to start - so many things to say after watching that video! It's always nice to see our furiends in video action; really shows off their personalities! Loved watching your little butts wiggling around too!!

Your momma is so talented - taping and using the scissor at the same time!! My mom's not nearly that coordinated, think I'd need an ear transplant if she tried something like that!! I don't know if my mom could cope with the whole moo-tube thing - however I think I'd enjoy them just fine! Are the bully sticks origin equally weird - I'm afraid to ask,,,,

I think it's so funny that Banjo lives under an end table! And how is it that Bijou can jump out the window and be on something that looks like a bed??? Was your house built for dogs???!!

Bijou said...

BOL Tank!

Yeah, our house is a giant dog house and we just let mom live with us!

Well not really. The end table bed and window seat thingy were made back when mom had kitties. She had spoiled rotten cats then, now she has spoiled rotten dogs!

Wow! A lot of treats! How nice!

Thanks for clearing that up... don't you find it interesting (odd) that no one else picked up on Bijou jumping out the window? Sometimes I wonder if bloggers are really paying any attention to what they're seeing or reading. Your video was fun... loved Banjo trying to stockpile the moo tubes.

SEDONA said...

Hey B&B, you guys are so funny! I BOL when your momma called Banjo a "little piggy"! I gotta get me some of those tracheas!
I also loved your cool window seat. Bijou, you are so agile, like a cat! Loved seeing you two "live" esp. watching those little stumpy tails going non-stop :-)
Your pal,

Hi, Bijou and Banjo!
I can't type. The drooling does not let me!
Kisses and hugs

Hey, Bijou's Mom....I can help you out if you think you have too many moo tubes. Just say the word. Banjo, you are a pup after my own heart. Get as many as you can as soon as you can. Momma was laughing when you snatched the second one cause I do that too. Oh, and are you gonna tell Brutus where bully sticks come from? Hehe!
Love and hugs,

Hi Bijou and Banjo, I am Sasha from Michigan. I came to visit from Twix's blog. I hope we can be friends. I love your video. I am going to ask my Mom to get me some of those chewy things.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

You guys are just too stinkin' cute! We have those sweet potato treats and they're really yummy...but they don't last very long at our house! And those moo tubes look really yummy too. We'll have to tell Mom about those. That video of you guys was so cute. Banjo was too funny getting two out!

Chihuahua kisses,
Bentley & Lexus

Wow, those moo-tubes sound great! We were laughing at Banjo standing on the box. I think that every package that comes to the house is for me and try to open them, too. BOL!
