My dog is a canine vacuum. If there are crumbs on the floor, she finds them.
She’s picky though. Dirt? Leaves? Inedible detritus? Well, those remain on the floor until I sweep, mop or vacuum, but if there is food to be found, she’s on it.
So her bowl of food spills this afternoon, and there are kibbles and slimy bits of soft dog food strewn around, and where does her nose go? Into the empty bowl!
On any other day, she’d be gulping down human food on the floor she’s not supposed to be eating and here she is, surrounded by food made especially for her palate … and she’s licking an empty bowl.
Dumb dog. She’s a sweetheart. But she’s not winning any awards for timely mess rescues here.
Speaking of dogs with bad timing, did you see the Chicago White Sox didn’t make the playoffs?
