Only One Side

Coco is a big dog in a little dog body.  From day one she exhibited strong natural instinct.  She intrinsically knew fetch, and seems to want to herd the cats.  She also knows if one of the cats is getting out of line.  Like a little patrol dog, she tries very hard to put them back on the straight and narrow, sometimes to their chagrin.

Coco's Nylabone 6-4-2009 3-01-28 PMCoco is also a big chewer and thank goodness as her little high energy self can be entertained for hours at a time with her bones.  However, I noticed she only likes to chew one side.  I cleaned out their toy basket today and I had to throw out the two on the left.  Once the nub is gone, it’s done, so away it went.  I find this very interesting.  Sophie or Max couldn’t care less about chewing, ball-playing, or cats, so of course I find all her little behaviors endlessly fascinating.

  • Wow, good for her for figuring out how to herd cats. She seems like a diligent pup, working away on the one side and calling the bone “finished.” A dog after my own heart (I’m slowly getting the fastidiousness beat out of me…).

    Cheers!

  • That is really interesting. My mom’s dog just buries his bones and never eats them. It’s hard for me to understand because rawhides and bones around my house are gone within hours!

      Rufus loves those bones! He has two and sometimes he’ll try to chew them both at the same time.
