From time to time I treat myself to a smoky piece of chugo, the rock-hard, long-lasting, protein-rich yak cheese from Haa. Little did I know that I was actually eating, well, there's no way around it: I was eating a dog treat...
It turns out that chugo (also known as chhurpi) is re-marketed in the West as - lo and behold - "Himalayan Dog Chew", and promoted as "an authentic type of cheese eaten by the people of the Himalayas." According to the advertising pitch, when I chew on chugo (or is it chew-go?) I am indulging in "hours of high quality eating entertainment
". Woof, woof!

Given that three pieces of chugo-turned-dog-chew cost $49.95
(plus shipping, starting at $11.95), it's no surprise that Americans are spending more than $50 billion a year on pets. So the next time you are thinking of a gift to your pet-owning friends in the US, just send them a few pieces of chugo...
