Also, a lot of premade raw has the bones included.
This is what I've always read when researching raw feeding. But lately, there is some question about how they came to this conclusion. This article might be very enlightening complete with barium ex rays and a small study:

Properly trained, a man can be dog's best friend.

"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
