Yum, Venison Ears!

Now as you probably know by now, I'm a gent of discerning taste, so when I have a treat, I tend to go for the less common or garden variety. It was only fitting then, that rather than the bog standard pig's ears, ma bought us some venison's ears recently.

As you can see, it was the first time Cassidy had had anything like this, and she was a bit bemused!

It didn't take her long to work out what needed to be done however.

Though she did seem more interested in saving it for later than getting her big Dale teeth around it.

Cassidy managed to make hers last for around 3 days!

Now I too took my time giving my venison's ear a good sniffing too. It was quite different to a pig's ear, less greasy. It still smelled jolly wonderful though let me tell you.

Chomp, chomp, chomp. I soon got to work.

Yum. I gave it two paws up. It also lasted me around 30 minutes, which believe me is very good going where me and treats are concerned.

See how happy I am! Food has got to be my number one favourite, maybe that's ear scratches and sleeping...hmmm, well it's up there at the top of the list anyway.

Gosh ma, I hope you bought plenty of these!

Snowball said...

Harry, looking at your pictures, I really cannot believe that you are already 11 yrs old. You look like a puppy! Venison ears. We have not seen any around here before. I wonder if I will like it.



Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Wow...those venison ears look yummy! I don't believe I have had one of those yet...wonder if I can get one here in Malaysia...=)


Pacco de Mongrel said...

i think as casidy get the hang of it..she will no longer need 3 days to finish it off

Mango said...

Those must be super yummers. You have such a big grin on your face.

I see you are letting yourself go natural. Maximum fuzziness!


Winnie Woo said...

Oh Harry, we will be sad to see the fur go, you are so adorable with it.
But its understandable, I couldn't take it in this heat either. Mom stripped me for about 10 minutes max before she got tired of the fur sticking to her and just said, that's it, buzzcut!

Gaia the Airedale said...

Those vension ears sure look yummy! Ive never heard nor had vension before! Is it better than chicken or turkey necks? I get those pretty often and those are pretty good. You two should try those! The weather looks like its holding up there, thats good :)

puppy breath,

G'day Harry mate,
Haven't tried venison ears before. They look good.
Did you have an aire-cut lately? You look woolier than Cassidy or does your fur grow quickly. Mine does, super quick.

Hugs and tail wags
