Dogs and Apples

I'm quite a fan of apples, especially the Braeburn, Boscop, Pippin, and Strawberry varieties. I appear to have now made my dog a raving fan of the things.

It all started innocently enough. I was watching TV, eating an apple, and the dog was watching me. When I got down to the core, I figured, "Well, dogs eat anything. I'll give it to her." The beastie grabbed the core and slunk off beneath the coffee table to eat her kill. Which was pretty much what I expected.

The next time I ate an apple, I didn't have to offer it. She was right there, just waiting for me to finish, and neatly and politely took the core and left to "take care of it". But things escalated. It's gotten to the point where if I just start to wash an apple, my Tibetan Spaniel gets way too excited, following me around the house. I can hardly finish one in peace. I've always got an audience. And if I don't give her the core, she sulks.

Later, if I walk barefoot across the hardwood floors, I'll find the seeds. Oy, the price I pay for soft-heartedness.

I once had a beagle who loved carrots. Later, I had a collie mix who, one unfortunate night, developed and quickly lost a taste for beer. I blame bad parenting.

You know, for the losing it.

Wow. The weirdest things our animals eat is salsa. Tatsuko goes nuts for the stuff, the hotter the better. If it makes human lips burn, she'll rip out your throat to get some, all the while purring. Then she cleans her face for hours afterward, still purring. Insane beast.
