Dogs Are Funny

Our respite from winter has passed and we are back in the deep freeze.
I'm being a big baby and refusing to leave the house any more than necessary.
When I went out to drive the bus this morning it was -24C.
At these temperatures my bus does not really warm up until it gets to school.
I got home and told Jada there was no way we were going for a walk today.
I felt bad though because with her fur she would go for a walk no matter how cold it got!
To give her something to do I put part of her breakfast into a Kong. I mixed together kibble and peanut butter in a small bowl and then stuffed it into the Kong, blocking the openings with a piece of a milk bone treat.
It's great fun!

Rather than waste any kibble and peanut butter that wouldn't fit into the Kong, I put the bowl on the floor for her to lick out.
I heard her happily licking away as the bowl slid around the kitchen floor.
Suddenly she raced to the patio door. I let her out and watched as she threw herself into the snow rubbing her head with her paw.

What in the world? . . .

She rubbed her head furiously in the snow then got up licked the snow she had been rubbing in.

Ohhhh. . .
She had managed to get peanut butter all over her head while licking out the bowl!
I don't know if she was trying to clean it off or just didn't want to waste it. . .
Dogs are funny.

yep, dogs are funny but smart as well, they know just how to coerce us into doing want they want.

Maybe the peanut butter was laced with jalapenjo pepper? Did ya' think of that?

Rosa said...

Nope. Can't say I thought of that Tam! LOL

I have this toy for my dogs, but they don't seem to like it. Can you imagine, Rosa, peanut butter on your head?

Our new puppy will be experiencing his first winter, wonder how he will take it. He doesn't even like going out in the yard on cold mornings to "do his business" so I'm thinking he won't care much for snow either!
