"Open it, oh Thumbed One!"

The lovely folks at Chewy.com sent us 1 bag of Lils pig ears and 1 six inch bully stick to try.

The Lils pig ears are for dogs 20 lbs and under. In our case they made the perfect sampling size!
There were three ears in the bag plus one teeny tiny one.

They're a pretty decent size. I bet a small dog would be in heaven and get lots of chewing time from it. Lassie and Petal finished them off in under 5 minutes. They LOVED them. I loved that they're made in the USA. But the little hairs still on the ear made me cringe. My dogs have had pig ears before (usually when I take them to a pet store and they snatch one off the shelf or I tell them to "pick something!" That's what they usually go for), but I've never noticed little hairs. Then again, I've never looked too closely either. ;)

They're a very messy treat. I was glad I had Petal and Lassie (trust me he got some, in fact, he got 2 of the 3; I just didn't get any decent pictures) eat them on the kitchen floor/their dog cot.

"Licking crumbs off the floor is a little difficult with an overbite."

I gave the bully stick to Petal, since Lassie got 2 of the 3 pig ears.
It was a very thin little bully stick and it only lasted her about 8 minutes! Six inch bully sticks usually last my dogs somewhere between 20-60 minutes depending on thickness (yes, I hear you giggling ;P).

Thin little bully stick.

These bully sticks would be perfect for little dogs/dogs that aren't strong chewers at all. They wouldn't be worth the money for us though. I expect the pricey chews to last a minimum of 20 minutes. This didn't even last half that.
On the plus side, I didn't notice any smell and I sat right next to Petal as she ate it.

Lassie & Petal give the pig ears 3 1/2 out of 4 paws up for deliciousness and being made in the USA. They're a little pricey though.

Petal gives the bully stick 1 paw up. It was tasty and made in the USA, but it was gone in a flash; not for strong chewers.

While I wouldn't buy True Chews' bully sticks for my dogs, I would happily buy any of their other treats, and I do think their bully sticks would be the perfect size for soft chewers/small dogs.

Of course Chewy.com still has all our love. Our package arrived promptly and the goodies were packaged well.
The dogs get excited when a package from Chewy.com comes. Even the cats come running to see if it's their usual order of food.

I picked their chicken jerky to review, and Nola loves that. I stayed away from pig ears (Nola+pig ears = upset Doxie belly) and I knew she'd demolish the bully stick in 2 seconds flat.

Love your review! (Petal made me laugh!) Our collies are sitting with crossed paws hoping Chewy.com asks them do a review of some yummy treat! But for now, they are greatly enjoying reading what Petal and Lassie think of diferent treats! :)

You can tell how good it is by the mess, the bigger and longer it takes to lick the floor from one side to the other, the better it is! Bet even with the over bite, the floor was still sparkly clean!

My Corgies don't do well on pig ears -- they don't chew them well enough and end up hacking up pieces. So far, marrow bones (when I can separate the girls so one doesn't try to take both) and antlers are their favorite chews.

MMMMM those look tasty...but probably not for me since I chew everything!
