Oh brother. I have tell this little sick story. My Daughter's two little pittbulls always come over to my place as soon as they get up. I know who is awake at my Daughter's house, by when these little pitties push open my front door and come to see Gramma. They are my pride and joy, along with many other creatures big and small (and human) around here.
They come over, greet me and then proceed to need their good morning love. So, what they always get and they know it, is a dog treat from my kitchen door. Off we go when they come in. Kobi (the white and black pittie) gets hers and she graps it and runs off to the living room to eat it. Titan (the brown one, my working pal outside) takes his and moves backwards to eat it on the kitchen rug infront of the sink.
Now and then Kobi gets Kooder's big chewy rawhide that he gets each morning (yes, he gets a nice big rawhide, that's 'cause he is our dog). Usually, he gets sick of it and leaves it on the front room rug.
Kobi always gets these leftovers, and let me tell you she is a pig. I fondly call her my pig dog, no clue why, but because, she is a noisy girl, she always grunts and groans (I am sure it is a little bit of a pain thing, she has a slight degree of arthritis), and you can always tell she is around because she has very loud breathing, kind of snuffling, if that is a word.
So my little pig girl sits there and chews and chews on this rawhide. Like she is doing right now. She takes too big of a bite and tries to swallow it. Well, it just doesn't go down and comes right back up. Now this is a gross sound. So she takes that bite and chews it up a little bit more, tries to swallow it again, nope, not goin' down, comin' right back up. Oh brother......so now I am listening to this little Kobi girl, my pig dog, chewing and chewing and chewing. One more regurgitation of this rawhide, and it is history. It will dry until tomorrow and she will attempt again to chew up this rawhide, hope she has better luck tomorrow, or else, it goes back up on the shelf, to dry again, and for her to chomp on the next day. Just a day in my life, hee, hee, did I make anyone sick? Have a wonderful and beautiful day, Cindi
And guess what, after 3 days of very cold cold weather (hitting -9C, 15F), it has warmed up, overcast, sitting at -4C, 24F, it is now snowing. Eeeks!!!!! We have had the wierdest weather!!!! Last week it snowed about 10 inches and then the warm pineapple express came (the winds from Hawaii up the Pacific Ocean to land on our coast) and it got up to about 12-15 C (53-59F), melted all the snow, and then cleared and cold again -- and now snow again, unheard of around here, this kind of off and on. We usually have rain, sitting around 45-47 F. Oh well, our beautiful Mother Nature up to her tricks!!!!!!
