Is a rawhide bone a doggie treat or a doggie toy?

Treat, of course dogs can eat them, but sometimes use them as toys.

It's more fun watching dogs eating stuff.

Rawhide bones have multiple uses! They provide entertainment for your pup, a tasty snack, and promote good dental hygiene! (:

As well as something to bury, apparently. That's what she did with it.

If it doesn't last it's not a toy.

I don't know if that's really true. Some dogs can really rip a cheap toy apart, like those flimsy squeaky ones. If you want a really durable toy, the best thing in the world is the Kong.

I think its both really.

I say treat.

I've always known it to be a treat

I think of it as a treat because they (my girls, Miniature Dachshunds) do not play with the bone. It is serious business. And it is like they revert back to behaviors of the wolf ancestors. They go their own separate space and do not want to be bothered when they have their bone.

A toy, on the other hand is something they will play with together and we can interact with them while doing so.

Yeah but I would think a treat as a quick chew and itĀ“s gone, this lasts a little while. But I guess I could consider it a treat.

Toys aren't edible.

Tell that to a dog. I've seen plenty of plastic in dog poop.

Are stones edible? I ate plenty of those went I was younger.

It's funny how many times YT discussions have me looking up definitions.
Edible: Fit to be eaten (often used to contrast with unpalatable or poisonous examples).
Fit: (of a thing) Of a suitable quality, standard, or type to meet the required purpose: "the meat is fit for human consumption".

You're right dictionary boy, toys aren't edible by strict definition, but dogs do eat them. I find it interesting how words have meaning but people ignore the meaning and use them any way they choose. My personal pet peve is decimate. To decimate was a Roman form of punishment where one in ten is killed, so unless Sandy only destroyed 10% of the eastern seaboard it wasn't decimated, it was devistated.

At first, I didn't like the mainstream use of the slang definition of 'epic', but I'm trying to accept it as just a new version of 'cool', rather than taking it personally as people trying to squeeze themselves into a subculture to which they don't belong.

Epic is not cool, but cool has been around too long and needs to be replaced. I wish groovy would have stuck around.

Treat. They're supposed to eat it aren't they
8 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 1/11/13 - 7:13:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I used to give them to my dogs as a treat.

I used to have a dog and I gave him rawhide bones, but it was really annoying when I kept finding them under the couch.
