Dear Springtime,

I recently purchased a 6 pack of the 6" Beef Trachea for my dog, Banks, as he comes to work with me every day and I like for him to have something fun and yummy to chew on. He loves these! You can buy a similar product elsewhere, but these, we've found, are tastier and seem of higher quality. They are thicker than other tracheas we've purchased, so that makes them extra chewy and last longer.

We've recently started stuffing them with pumpkin puree, blueberries and other goodies. We stick them in the freezer to make a long-lasting snack for days that we're too busy to get out or, frankly, when the Washington weather is too ugly for us to romp around in. Banks LOVES them! I'd choose these over nylon bones any day. The nylon splinters and causes Banks to cough, so these are the better choice for him. Plus, the health benefits of the naturally occurring glucosamine and chondroitin in the Beef Trachea is an added bonus.

I will be purchasing these and donating them to the shelter I work at for some of the "long timer" dogs for enrichment purposes. I know they will love them just as much as my picky boy does.

Thank you for all you do and providing pets and their families with wonderful products; we appreciate it so much!
