First, get a Chilly Bone. Have your biped read the directions, then pop it into the bag (it comes with its own plastic bag!) and put it in the freezy part of the magic cold box. It won't take long for it to be ready. I suggest napping on an air conditioner vent while you wait. We've had our Chilly Bone so long that I can't remember exactly how long it takes the first time - we just keep mine in the magic cold box so it's always ready to GO!!!
|CHILLY BONE TIME!!!|
I confess, being from Texas as I am, the first time Mom brought up the words "Chilly Bone", I thought she meant "Chili Bone" and I got really excited! Wrong kind of chili, but still really fun! (And cold, not hot!)
Anyway, see the sort of icy frost up on the mid-section of the bone? First you need to lick that off:
|"Mmm! Frosty and COLD!"|
That part is really fun and helps cool you down! Make sure you get all the frosty stuff off!
|"Did I get it all?"|
After that, give it a good chew. These are really great for little puppers who are teething, for senior pups, for pups who aren't really aggressive chewers ... and for guys like me who (in addition to being "senior") have had dental work and need to go easy on what we are allowed to chew on. It feels really nice on my areas where I've had tooth extractions!
Next up, have your biped give it a throw:
|"It's good to go, Mom - honest!"|
My mom always makes sure I haven't started any holes or anything, then we toss it around a bit.
Do you like my action shot? Sorry it's blurry!
Have another go at chomping on it:
|"I ❤ my Chilly Bone!"|
Once you've had a nice, long playtime, have your biped stick it back in the baggie and put it in the magic cold box so it'll be ready for next time!
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial. What are all of you doing to stay cool?
