I've never heard of shale before. I just want to ad that I'm glad Sadie is going to be OK. I'm sorry she had to go through surgery to have it removed.
My puppy -face developed a taste for firewood logs near the fireplace. I was worried about splinters and of course the mess.

Do you mean you want to use a hemp rope to tie them up? Hemp ropes are normally fairly heavy, and would probably only be good on very large dogs. Plus it is very rough,, might cause skin irritation.
