Galileo Bone vs Pit Bull

Lucy is only 50 pounds, and more Vizsla-like than a traditional pit bull, but she loves to chew and the item that has survived is the Galileo Bone. The oldest here is about two years old, the newest is from about a month back. Galileo Bones are heavy -- you don't want one landing on a toe -- but Lucy carries hers around, so she clearly loves it.

I would caution any dog owners to really be careful about letting their heavy chewers really "work" these Galileo bones. I bought them for my Presa Canario when she was a puppy and she actually ground her incisors down to the gum line with them. Her Galileo bones would look like the one on the right side of the photo after about a week. They seemed like a good idea at the time but the incessant gnawing really took it's toll on her teeth. Never again.

Yes, I had a compulisve chewer too once -- a border terrier that started with bricks and rocks and then moved to Hickory nuts. Keeping teeth in a working terrier is hard enough, since they tend to gnaw roots and occassionally break a tooth in the ass of an animal.

I don't know about Galileo bones, but the observation about antlers is right on the money. A Westie I had broke out an otherwise healthy tooth, the very first time he chewed one.
