Oh the joys of dog ownership.
(That's very un-PC, isn't it? I can't really "own" my dog, can I?)
Quakey has turned out to be quite the little scavenger. Kitty's a scavenger-but we expected as much-she was a little skeleton when we got her-she'd been living on the streets of Small Town and almost didn't make. So, I would expect that she would eat whatever she could find. And she does (bunnies, birds, voles).
Quakey, on the other hand, was a very expensive purebred who has never suffered even a pang of hunger in his short little life.
And yet, he loves, loves, loves the trash. Loves to dig through the trashcans and hoard the trash in his crate.
I finally made Guapo clean it out the other night and here's what we found:
2. Julio's lunch thing-a-ma-jig (what do you call those?) that he scavenged out of his backpack. I guess he doesn't like blueberries. He does, however, like PB&J sandwiches.
3. The lid from those delicious little lemon cakes Costco sells-have you had those? Yum. He somehow wrangled it out of the lidded-recycled trash can.
4. Kitty litter remnants-he still has the disgusting habit of eating the cat pooh.
5. One of his chews-the only thing he's supposed to have in his crate.
Here are some of the potatoes I found throughout the house that day, thus inspiring the edict to clean out the crate:
I'm telling you-the dog is like the 5th child we don't have. The messes, the fighting and teasing(with Pedro), the cleaning up of the pooh (both his and the cats), the guilt when I leave him home alone. It's awesome.
Luckily he's fairly cute and is always happy (especially when he's got some fresh trash).
Have a great weekend!
