You’ve all heard the stories of what Labradors eat…just from Delilah I can say, baker’s chocolate, butter, color pencils, play dough, dryer sheets, well, the list goes on and on.
There’s a house at the end of the street, and it has a little tree in the from yard. In the fall, this little tree drops little apples. I’ve always thought the apples were crab apples, mostly because of this gal.
Naturally these apples are particularly appealing to a Labrador. I mean, if you’re willing to eat colored pencils, you can only imagine what an apple smells like.
We do work on the leave-it command on our walk, but at 6:00 am I’m not always paying attention, and Delilah knows it.
It’s the funniest thing really. She picks up the apple and tries to bite it. I’m assuming it tastes terrible, because she shakes her head, and curls her lip. She looks like she’s doing the Labrador’s impression of Elvis. LOL
Sometimes she drops it on her own, sometimes I have to convince her, but it doesn’t stop her from the next time.
And she doesn’t limit her munching to apples. Nope, I have to keep my eyes sharp, because she’ll eat anything that smells like food.
I usually laugh at her silly antics, especially because she keeps trying despite the fact every apple she’s ever attempted to eat off that tree, hasn’t tasted well.
