Sticker Shock For A Pet Store Visitor

This writer, who hadn't had a pet since the 1960's, offers a wildly funny take on her first pet store experience in many decades. She's invited to dinner at a friends' house and decides to take their little dog, Manny, (who once destroyed her shoe) a present—hopefully a little something that would keep him busy chewing on something more appropriate.

The pet store she visits is brimming with what to her are exotic dog treats: organic, free range duck feet, bully sticks, dehydrated Buffalo tendons, and even Himalayan chews made from boiled and dried yak. After much deliberation, she chose a dried Bison penis, and Manny loved it. But when she returned home from a pleasant evening, the Bison made his presence known...

                         Did someone say dried Bison penis?

We are guessing doggie enjoyed the treat but wasn't happy about being left.
