Oh, knuckle bones are very good! I wasn't saying they weren't, just smoked (cooked) knuckle bones are not because they have more chance of splintering.

I agree with lizmo, bones are great, but COOKED bones are a big no no, splinters easily can pierce through their stomaches.

Maybe just giving it to her when you kennel her, and will be gone for a while, that way it's a treat to her and no mess.

I have to agree about cooked bones. I stay away from cooked bones with my dogs. When I want them to have some yummy bones to chew on recreationally them I give them raw soup/marrow bones. I would have no problem with knucklebones themselves- it's the cooking process that makes them more dangerous.
Can you pick of some raw bones at a butcher or grocery store?

I did the same thing with Django and his blanket. He would move the chewie off the blanket, I would take it and put it back. That's not to say that he won't try to take it elsewhere, but if you give him something he will head immediately to his bed or blanket.
