i usually tear some meat or the chewy tendon/ligament/etc parts off for mine, but whatever works for you.

Growing up, we regularly fed our dog bones (except no chicken bones) and he lived to be 15 years old.
Don't feed your dog bones!
Making sure your kids don't eat dirt?

There is actually a diet for dogs where you feed them raw chicken, bones and all.

it's debatable whether raw bones are ok. i've heard mixed opinions on that, but mostly i've heard it's actually ok.
it's NOT debatable, however, that cooked bones can splinter and kill your dog.
bogey, maybe with time people have discovered it's generally not an ok thing to do anymore. i mean, to put it in different terms, even the stuff my mom and moms like her used to do with their kids safety-wise has changed quite a bit over the last 30 yrs because of studies that determine what's the safer thing to do. i'm not talking trivial stuff either (how you put them to bed in a crib, car seats, etc.)
maybe your family dog lucked out or maybe you gave it stronger bones. all i know is i don't risk it with mine.
anyway, here's some links that say why cooked bones are bad:

I'm gonna go to the pound and pick up a dog just so I can feed it bones all day long, then I'm gonna adopt a baby and feed it dirt, then I'm gonna run with scissors.
