I like the antlers, and have been recommending them, too. Timber is a real power chewer--of the last pair I ordered, one is gone and the other is less than half its original length, but they last much longer than anything else I can give him except those Hercules Nylabones, and he likes them better than the Nylabones. I like it that he has something to keep him entertained in his crate when I'm at work. The extra thick one you sent with this last order should last even longer. Another thing I like about them is that they seem so safe--they don't break or splinter cow hooves, they're not so hard like those sterilized bones, he can't chew off huge chunks like rawhide so I can leave him alone with it in his crate without worrying that he'll choke. They seem to just sort of compress and wear away as he gnaws on them. They don't get slimy, they don't stink. The one thing that does worry me is when they get to a certain length I'm afraid he might swallow it long ways and get it stuck in his throat, so I take them away at that stage, or only let him have the shorter ones when I'm home. And of course they're not allowed to play with them--someone might get an eye poked out! But all things considered, I think they're one of the best chewy things for dogs available.
