Everyone enjoys a snack. These birds and pigeons are partaking of a large loaf (kind of lazy way to feed the pigeons, my human friends, just hurling a loaf of bread into a park). And they were indeed enjoying it until I came along.
Not very tasty. But I know where to find something better.
There is a restaurant in my neighborhood that puts out both a bowl of doggie water and a bowl with doggie cookies in it. They're just the basic milk bone variety, but they are BIG ones. That gets major extra points in my book.
So what you do is pretend that you're going to go into the restaurant, remember that you are a dog, put your head down and scarf up a bone-o. Then head off to your favorite park.
You want to keep the pace up - not quite a full-on run, that would be too noticeable, but a trot at a good clip so that the bone doesn't begin to disintegrate in your mouth before you have a chance for a good flop onto the grass.
Again, it doesn't matter that these treats aren't fancy or aren't my favorite. They are FREE and working out how to best snag one has been fun for me. Time to flop out on the grass and CHOMP
The sun is shining, the grass is cool, and the bone is delish. Never a bad way to do the evening walkie.
It's good to be smart AND handsome.
