I've seen dogs take part of a chicken quarter or meaty bone and stash it for later enjoyment....I'm sure a bit of freezer burn will not lessen your dog's enjoyment of food in the slightest.

I appreciate your concern regarding Stella actually crunching a bony piece of meat and swallowing it without any problems......I'm guessing she will do fine but if for your own peace of mind...read up on what to do if a dog should ever have an obstruction in their mouth or throat.....it could happen many ways other than simply feeding. Determine if your dog is a chewer or a gulper or a happy combination of both and proceed accordingly....I am amazed at how quickly my bottomless pit can devour a chicken quarter...a turkey neck would be an appetizer.

Even though I am much more at ease feeding my dog raw bony items...I still monitor....
