Doesn’t matter, any sane hiring manager will only check Monday soonest.

My cavapoo of 11 month is a HEAVY chewer. She destroys the hardest nylabones (you can see small crumbles). 1) is it unhealthy for her if she swallows some of those small crumbs? And 2) what else can we get her to satisfy her chewing? We got her a rubber Playology bone but she prefers the Nylabones.

She destroys animal chewtoys, so thats out of the question.
