mine eat cedar chips that surround my new tree and bushes all the time. they eat tree limb pieces, too. i don't think it hurts them, but i can't imagine it being great for them. i try to keep it under control, though.

i think it's just the taste and the fact that it's a great chew toy. oh well!

I thought this thread was a joke, briefly. I mean, come on, who has a Polar Bear for a pet?!

Haha...I was another that thought this thread was gonna be a weird one...haha...my dogs try to eat bark, wood chips, things like that too...I dont think it would be too good for them, just because it could possibly splinter in their stomachs. At least thats my opinion.
