Nearly impossible to destroy large dog chew toy

Nemo, my Great Pyr, tends to not like chewing on fake stuff. He's loved this Galileo Nylabone for years, however.

Nylabones cover the spectrum of dog-chew toughness. Puppy softchews are like plastic gel caps to my big dog, This hard bone is barely scored by his massive teeth.

The flavoring seems to last a long time, or Nemo just got used to chewing this bad boy for comfort. Sometimes I'll put a bit of peanut butter on it, if I just want him to settle down and leave me be.

Nemo is a 120lb chewing enthusiast. This bone, however, holds up.

"Infected coyotes" roam Chicago suburb

Hanover Police are warning residents of the Chicago-area suburb that the mangy dogs they've been seeing roaming around are in fact "infected coyotes." Also, be sure to avoid the infected coyotes.

There is unfortunately an increase in sarcoptic mange in the urban coyote populations which has caused these normally noctural animals to become more active during the day. Infected animals will often appear "mangy" - which looks just like it sounds. They suffer hairloss and develop secondary infections, eventually looking like some sort of "zombie" dog. The infections affect their vision, causing them to look for food during the daylight hours.

Great Pyrenees are merely the 67th most popular dog breed says the AKC

Every dog is the best breed if you are the person who loves'em.

Perhaps it is their great size, their extremely loud bark, all the fur they shed, or the 2-tons of poop? My best buddy Nemo's breed strangely lands at 67th on the AKCs 2017 list of most popular breeds. Zuul, and her family of Cavalier King Charles, comes in 19th.

Wonder what kind of standardized test they give the dogs?
