I guess I am overly squeamish! I just think about her gnawing on one and then getting on my lap and giving me my nightly face washing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when she licks my face but----right after having a bull penis chewie??!! Ewuee..

Yes, that does feel pretty disgusting. I prefer the odorless ones. I don't mind the concept as much as the smell. After all, dogs clean themselves by licking, no way around that.

I guess I'm just overly squeamish!! The part that I can't get past is that she is gnawing on one and then climbs up on my lap for my nightly face washing. I LOVE LOVE LOVE her washing my face but right after having that in her mouth??!!! EUWEEE...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my face washings but after right after she has been chewing on a bull penis!! EUWEE... I don't even give her rawhide because I think it is gross!! My poor baby fluff...She doesn't get any of the good stuff!!

I let Obi go to town on the bullies or Flossies on BATH day! LOL! it's really good for maltese to chew and chew- good for the teeth and gums But, you should try the odorless ones for sure. The regular ones SMELL horrid.

Rawhide can actually be bad for fluffs. So probably a good idea not to give her those.

I guess that I'm squeamish enough for the both of us. Sometimes I forget that they are NOT actual children. I even put their shampoo in my eyes to see if it burns. Am I hopeless???
