A few days ago, Sampson found an apple on our morning walk. I made a mental note, because I know one dog, that would scarf that apple right up.
Long time readers know, Delilah loves her food, and many has been the walk when I’ve had to wrestle food from her. It can be very disconcerting, shoving your hand into a gnashing mouth, without knowing WHAT you’re going to pull out.
I’m thinking someone probably threw it out thinking the birds would eat it, but as far as I know, it has only attracted the attention of dogs. 🙂
Since noticing the apple, I’ve avoided that side of the street with Delilah on our nightly walk. Except for Friday night.
Friday night I apparently was distracted. Just as we approached the area, a car turned down the street, so I stayed tucked behind a parked truck.
Snap! I forgot about that damn apple. Yup. Delilah found it. But I still didn’t realize this.
After the car passed I moved to get around the truck and noticed someone was distracted. Sure enough, she had that apple in her mouth.
Delilah’s come a long way, but she still hasn’t quite mastered “drop it,” but thankfully, she’s gotten pretty good with “leave it,” which she did. And that made me smile.
What did your pets do that made you smile this week?
P.S. Yesterday morning I remembered the apple, it was daylight, and I had a spare poop bag, so I picked up that apple and disposed of it.
