Today I found a new store that had some interesting treats for us to try.......


Chicken feet - not very nutritious but apparently very tasty.
Rabbit ears - eww!! but fur is good fiber.
Deer bone - not so gross but apparently quite delicious.

Our taste trials are below.


GRRRRRR - No mommy I will not give you my chicken foot - quit tryin to take it back. GRRRRRRR


Num num num nummmy num mum - Rabbit ears - nummmm



This is one happy dog chewing on a deer bone wrapped in esophagus....



I have to say I was really grossed out by these treats - you'll notice the dogs were eating them outside on the deck. However none of these treats were stinky or staining and they were really enjoyed.

Tiny little Izzy even went after that deer bone when Wedge stopped for a drink and she worked that bone for a good hour! I was impressed.

They look exactly like a chicken foot with claws and all!!! Just like Foghorn Leghorn's feet in the cartoon!

I just had a few samples so I didn't take any pics before they DEVOURED them. I guess I feel better that they were free range, organic chickens. The treats were dried so they just crunched right up when the dogs ate them.

Yes dried rabbit ears like from Easter bunnies! The fur was so soft!

They sell raw chicken feet in the grocery stores here, so that wouldn't freak me out - not that I've ever bought them!!!!

But, the rabbit ears just seem so weird... did they actually have bunny fur on them????? Eeewww!!! (But I do like rabbit smothered in onions - sans the fur.) :blush:

Chicken feet terrify me, so I would have to pass on those!

My neighbor loves them though and always offers me some when I'm over there.yikes. She says they're good for the skin, I tell her- so is using a good moisturizer and taking a good supplement! lol.

Actually I might have to pass on all those treats. lol!

The deer one I can handle...but the chicken feet, no way (it seriously has the claws and all??), and the rabbit ears...absolutely not! No way in heck would I do that if they had the fur on them still...eww! And how can fur be good for them to eat? Hairballs, anyone? lol

actually, chicken feet is a popular dim sum dish in hong kong and here, and I love it, it took me a while to get over the fact that it's bird feet to actually give it a try, but once I tried it, I found it to be quite delicious!

Actually, I know many American people who cook traditionally. They use chicken feet to make soup stock. It turns out very delicious, and the chicken feet add quite a bit of calcium to the soup.

:HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley: Yep! I'll stick to my moisturizer and supplements too!


Oh Leslie...I do cook things for my two that I don't like and even make me gag a little at the smell, ie fish and gizzards. But I think you have found a line that I just can't cross. :yucky:

On the rabbit ears...the thing that scares me is Zoe has found baby bunnies from time to time and very gently brought them to me unharmed. So I have to find the nest and put them back. If she starts to EAT rabbit ears, I don't want her to start to want to hunt rabbits!:w00t:

Honestly I didn't think I could cross that line either:w00t:. But watching the dogs enjoy the treats made me re-think it a little. I mean they LOVED it.

Mine already hunt rabbits so it's nothing new for me. GAG! It's horrible to clean up after.:yucky: Purchasing bunny ears is much cleaner, but still weird. I need to do a bit more investigation before I would use it as a regular treat.

LOL, sounds like an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.

Is this an online store??

I might be in the minority, but I don't find this type of stuff disgusting. Whenever I watch an episode of Bizarre Foods, I actually find myself wanting to try a lot of the exotic foods the host gets to eat. :w00t:

Oh wow, no one here has had chicken feet? It is actually a very popular dim sum item. Dim sum means "snacks" in Cantonese, and comes from Hong Kong. People have dim sum usually for brunch on the weekend. They bring the carts around to every table, and you order little tasting plates kind of like "tapas" in Spanish cuisine or "mezze" in Greek or Turkish cuisine.

The chicken feet do not taste anything like how you imagine "feet" to taste, lol. They are stewed in a red sauce that is salty, hot, and a little sweet. There's not much "meat" in the foot, per se, so you're mostly eating the skin and some gelatinous stuff underneath the skin. And then you spit out the bone. It is really good!!

Deer bone doesn't seem that wild. I like venison on the bone!!
I'm not sure I would try bunny ears, though...:HistericalSmiley:I don't like hair in my mouth...

Andrea, just try one chicken foot!! Not at your neighbor's. Maybe at Victoria Seafood in HK, or at Ambassador Hotel in Taipei. (I don't want you to have a bad first experience.) Just close your eyes. It's the sight of that claw that is scaring you. Ahahaha!!

Oh, I'm sooooo excited!!!!!! Ahahaha!!!! It's called Pheonix Claw, pronounced "Fong Jua" in Mandarin.

I am begging you, please, if you eat one....I don't care if you are blindfolded or not....obviously one hand will be preoccupied with the chopstick....the other hand....please do the "Claw" pose and take a picture for me. That will be the best present for Casanova and Bijou's birthdays in August. Thank you so much in advance!!!! :HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley:
