Dream Big !!

During the night a dead branch fell out of the oak tree in the back yard. Of course, everyone had to immediately check it out this morning as if it was some special present left by the night crew that prowls the yard after we're tucked in our beds.


Samba wanted to bring it to me, but her jaw isn't strong enough to drag that much weight up the hill.


Instead, she settled down to enjoy a good chew right where she was.


Morgan, our smallest dog, wasn't willing to leave the branch halfway down the hill and she dragged it up to the top where she could enjoy it in comfort.


She had another smaller stick that she had already started, so she positioned herself on top of the branch so no one else could steal it, and continued chewing her smaller stick. Now she has a good supply of chewing matter for the next few days.

Bella loves sticks, too. Samba look good carrying that stick even that far!

How funny that bothof your dogs had 2 very separate strategies with that ever-exciting stick! Too bad they didn't have the energy or the time to show the prize possession to you though! It's funny how dogs think we've never seen other dogs, sticks, squirrels, and various other distractions and have to drag us to see them!
Glad you liked my Dog Food For Humans blog post! Who would've thought we could entertain ourselves by carving faces into veggies anyway?

Such different ways to handle this gift from the night crew! I personally like the lay down on my bounty so no one can steal it method!

Wags,

LOL! Samba and Morgan are both so cute. I just want to give them both huge hugs. Isn't it cute when those things happen and you see the dogs using their noggins? hehe! Have a nice day.

I love to see how dogs play with sticks! They are like toys for them! Bingo loves anything picked up from the floor, including sticks, too!

Hi Sue! Thanks for stopping by the blog. I would LOVE to see a wet Portie show, or (horrors, horrors) a wet Beardie show. Imagine what would happen if you couldn't simply sculpt a good dog out of a hairball!

You can't possibly think the night crew DIDN'T bring this present, did you? Of course not; you're not dumb. I hope my night crew doesn't bring limbs real soon.

One cannot ever have too many chewing and playing sticks in one's backyard or front yard. They are furry imPAWtant to one's happiness☺

Dianne said...

Of COURSE the present was for them! The same night crew is leaving presents here, too!

My girls are both sneaky about dropping on top of one thing while they chew/play with another, so they don't have to share...
