Sometimes antlers and other raw bones can be harmful to your dogs teeth. Certain breeds have a stronger bite force and unknowingly grind down their teeth on these raw bones.

Alternative bones that aren’t as hard are a great option and will keep your pups teeth intact. Lumabone specializes in these types of toys and even have dental chews!

Lumabone offers 3 different styles of bones so every dog wins!

The Stick

This is the closest bone resembling chew they offer at the moment. It is made from real maple wood! If your pup loves finding sticks in the backyard, they’ll love this too! The best part, it’s all made in the USA.

The Wishbone

This durable chew is personally my dogs favorite. It comes bacon flavored which might be the best part! Lumabone strategically made the wishbone chew so that dogs could have a strong grip on the bone. This means hours of uninterrupted chew time!

The Dental Chew

Specifically made to promote healthy and strong teeth. This bone has two holes at each end and ridges on each side to help your pooch grip their new favorite toy. Don’t worry though! These chews have been modified, the holes will not trap your dogs canine teeth. This has been an ongoing problem with many different brands. Luckily, Lumabone is one step ahead of the problem!

Another great thing about these bones is that they don’t break apart into small pieces. Usually with other bones you run the risk of your dog choking on a piece of broken off bone. While it is never recommended to let your pup chew on a bone without supervision, Lumabone understands accidents happen. These bones are made 100% from nylon. (The stick has maple wood as well)

Saying Goodbye: How to Cope with the Loss of a Dog.

So today is the worst day of your life. Anyone knows that losing a pet is an indescribable feeling of pain. We don’t get nearly enough time with our dogs before they leave us for the rainbow bridge.

And it’s okay to be sad, these pups were our lives! They depended on us for so many things; and we were happy to do these things for them. Believe it or not, we also depended on them. They are our everything! Our alarm clock on a dark winter morning, our private security guard outside the bathroom door, our shoulder to cry on, our pillow to lay on, and most importantly our best bud!

“I met May in October but I also lost her in October. May was loved by many people and she will be forever be missed. I thank her for many things. There’s something missing in my home, I feel it day and night. I know it will take time and strength before things feel quite right, but for now I need to mourn; my heart it needs to mend. Though some may say it’s just a pet I know I’ve lost a friend. She brought so much laughter to my life. She will forever live in our heart! My sweet forever pet. October 13th, 2018 was my favorite day, and October 27th,2019 was the worst day.”

It’s very important to remember that they loved us with every inch of their furry body. No matter what point you came into their life at, you are the last thing they will remember. They won’t think about the time you said no or the time you yelled at them for tearing up your expensive couch. So you shouldn’t either.

Please remember the good times. The times in the park playing fetch for hours. The times at the beach when your pup was afraid of the water. When you first brought your dog home and waited for their reaction to each new thing they’d see. All the car rides spent with the windows down (even if it did mess up your hair.) The walks and explorations you went on. Just because they are gone, doesn’t mean those precious memories are gone. Eventually, those memories will leave you with a smile.

You can’t stop the fun now though! Please don’t give up. I know you are probably thinking, “I’ll never have a dog again, it’s too painful.” Lots of things in life are painful. This one especially. There is no better way to mend your heart than by saving another one. So many dogs need us. And every year so many are failed. It’s okay to think, “No dog can replace mine.” This is because no dog will. Dogs are irreplaceable. Each has their own unique personality and quarks.

“There will never be another dog like mine.”

This is to be said about your late and present dog, and will remain true for as long as you live.
