I Am A Forager

Pups, I like to forage while I am outside. Mom says this is why I had such an upset stomach last week, but I can't help it. I just love to forage because there is so much to smell and taste out there.

The other day I was foraging outside and mom was watching. She got a little bored with my activities and called me to her. I ran over to her and attempted to give her a big kiss on the face. She recoiled in horror. Why? Well, she opened my mouth and saw what I had been eating! I had been foraging in a pile of poo (which I thought was fabulous), but the momma, not so much. Out came the chicken flavored toothpaste when we got back into the house.

Last night I was also foraging in the yard. At one point I picked up something and mom immediately noticed the guilty look on my face and told me to drop it. I dropped a big goose or duck egg at her feet. Since it is so late in the season, this one obviously never hatched and was quite rotten. Mom then took me into the house. On returning to the house I immediately went to give daddy a big kiss. Apparently my breath was not the best! Go figure!

So pups, should I stop foraging? Should I brush my teeth more after any treasures? Or are the peeps just too fussy about my breath? Your opinions please.

Just wait a bit between coming indoors and giving smooches. Their guard will be down and they won't realize what you've snacked on! It's a win, win situation!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. A smell is a smell is a smell. Only the humans put a judgment call on smells. As far as a dog is concerned, having any kind of smell makes it special. This is why your toothpaste is chicken flavor. If a dog had invented it, it would also come in poop flavor!

well I would say you can sniff around, but eating some things that lead to a very upset stomach is not fun.

Here is my theory:

If you eat something that to you is yummy...then when you get an ache in your tummy...its so much later that only your mommy...would say you did something dummy...

Remember its only my theory, BOL!

In this den I get mostly the same reaction: EEEUUUUWWWWWWW!!!!

Hmm, some of dat sounds a little nasty to me too, but I really like being clean more dan most dogs. A live rat though, that's fun to catch.
