Greenies, Ah! Wonderful Greenies

Here I am enjoying a Greenie today. Teenie size. Just right. My vet, Dr. Whitaker, recommended to my people I should have them for my teeth and my enjoyment. I've always savored them. Eating them at a deliberate speed. Never gulping. Thoughtful chewing. That's the best way for lots of reasons. A short while ago a US TV show made quite a fuss when some dogs with no patience or sense at all tore them into large chunks and at least one died when such a chunk went down a bad way. Well. I mourn for those dogs, but what were they thinking? Were they so hungry they were ravenous and thus ate too fast? Perhaps I will never know. Life is short. Best to savor as much as one can.
