My Terriers use to dismantle tennis balls. They'd first peel off the day glow yellow fuzzy cover, then proceed to the inner rubber delicacy. The rubber ball inside is under pressure, so I'd hear a Pop!!not to be a Debbie Downer but dogs eating anything besides what was designed to be eaten by them can cause twisted intestine in dogs which can be fatal ( like eating leather stuff, tennis balls, and the sort )
The issue was getting the football sideways through the doggy door. I heard "thump, scratch, scratch.... thump, scratch, scratch" as he'd walk into the door then try to shove it through until "TADAH"...success. Half hour later chunks of the ends were laying all over the place.allright, then it's cool, a lot of dogs do eat what they chew on, and as mentioned above that could be an issue
If the girlfriend is more loyal, get rid of the wife before she gets rid of you.... I know a secluded cabin in the woods, and a place where you can buy a wood-chipper. 😉I've got a girlfriend that is extremely loyal. But "like a dog" is a tricky phrase. If I say she's like a dog, she will get pissed. If I don't say she's like a dog my wife will get pissed.
As many of you know, dogs listen to us, sense our emotions. Well, too many times one or more of our dogs has been sprayed by a skunk. Our household is no stranger to the various substances sold to de-skunk the smell. Our canines know our lack of enthusiasm regarding skunks is palpable, and that more than once I have told my son (in front of the dogs) that I may ask him to tail a skunk we encounter so I can retrieve some means to dispatch the possible source of rabies. They can be taken anytime in the state where we live.
Three times now, one or two of our dogs have taken it upon themselves to do the take. One dog carries it back home, and one time buried it on our property.
Because they bring back various animal parts from mountain lion takes (some possibly coyotes), I used a hardware cloth tray suspended in a tree to keep our dogs from bickering about it. Also germs. I have an image of the 3 skunks on top of other products of the forest but will not post it here. For a well known CPF member insisting on proof, I can get a Google Photos link for it. We try to be respectful about this.

Tralfaz's sister Yuki (pronounced yoo-kee) in cow mode.
Actually she was hunting a cricket.
She's learning to catch a frisbee.
Tralfaz survived the raisins without incident.

2 o'clock nap time. Looks really uncomfy.
He walks in the door "wham!" collapses onto the floor, lets out a sigh and was out for a bit. Doorbell rings on tv and he springs to his feet ready for action....
Our soil is not deep. Dogs would smell it and dig it up. Hardware cloth is metal screen with larger openings. I used our small dog to find where Hersha had buried the second skunk.Respectfully, another option for smelly carcass disposal is a burn pit. Although, in NM that might not be permitted, even during winter months.
I'm totally lost with your statement "3 skunks on top of other products of the forest" what in the heck does that mean?
