Chewing

SUMMARY: I've been a little stressed lately and needed a constructive way to channel my gnashing of teeth.

"So, Teek, ol' buddy ol' pal, can you explain this chewing-the-bully-stick thing?"


[[Ummm...can I go now?]] "C'mon pleeeze oh c'mon pleeeeeeeeezzzze???"


[[Maybe if I ignore her, she'll go away.]] "OK, like this? With the stick between my paws? Am I doin' it right? huh? am I? huh huh? Am I?"

[[I'm really not believing this--]] "Gnarrrr arrrrgh rrarr grnarrr..."


Somehow it was less satisfying than I had expected.

  1. I assume you do know what those things are made of? And you still stuck one in your mouth? Eeewww!

  2. Hey, the dogs eat them, so they must be OK, right? I mean, dogs never would eat anything that would be bad for me--or them-- am I right?

  3. Yesterday between our hike and at home (all 3 dogs included), I think there were cow, horse and cat feces consumed - you going to try that too :D

  6. Glad that Ren's doing OK. But really at trials I'm pretty tedious: either working the score table or whining about my handling and training mistakes. But you're welcome to come by and get ME laughing any time.

  7. OMD, you put one in your mouth, eeeeewwwwwwwww! Mum doesn't even let us have them, bully breath.

  8. OK, I'll confess, I didn't really put it in my mouth. I barely touched my front teeth to it for the photo op and didn't let my lips come near it. Maybe that's why it wasn't so satisfying-- I didn't want all of you to stay up nights, tossing and turning, wondering what it really tastes like and whether you should try it, too.

  9. Maybe I'll bring you a box of bully sticks to gnaw on at the score table at the next trial
