no --that was a larger stick--Baxter and Wilson both go through the six inch sticks very quickly--so I tried the larger one and I actually timed them! And hour was good! LOL.

A few years ago, Laura-Leigh, myself, her son and my son (boys were about 12) were at the pet store. We were shopping for dog treats, our sons each picked up a bully stick. I asked them if they knew what those treats were and of course they said no. When I told them, both boys yelled and tossed those bully sticks so high in the air they almost went into the rafters of the store!!! At that point Laura and I almost ended up sitting on the floor from cracking up.......omg it was funny!

In the beginning of manufacturing process the bull's penis that is usually 23-25 inches long, is removed and cleaned. It is hung vertically for the fluids contained to fully drain. Without these fluids bully sticks are odor free. At the next stage of processing bull penises are stretched, twisted or braided, dried and then may be smoked for flavor. The result is a 30-40 inches long very hard brown stick which is cut into pieces suitable for dogs of any size. Thus you can buy small bully sticks of 4'', large beef pizzles of 30 inches and any length between, such as 5'', 6'', 7'', 9'' and 12''.
LOL!

For some reason I've always known what they are and it's never bothered me at all. It takes my girls about a week to go through a 6 inch bully stick usually. They could finish in a couple hours but they usually lose interest about halfway through.

I puchase the 30 inch ones and then my Hub cuts them up, its much cheaper that way, plus I can give little ones to the pups at this time. However, this thread now has me thinking.........my son knows what they are but I don't know if my Hub does, I have to ask!!

When my poo was young someone told me to lick the end of the rawhide so it would have my scent on it cause she was so fussy. It worked.
