Eight Ways to Deal with a Finicky Eater
Now, that is a funny one! Skye, our 1/2 Weimaraner/1/2 Blue Heeler mix dog who has caught two birds and 5 or 6 squirrels in the past year, and finds every shard of pottery, piece of wire, plastic, paper, twig, branch, and pecan you didn’t know existed, definitely is NOT a finicky eater. That dog loves to eat–anything and everything! Honestly, as good as she is at digging up these things, she should be an archaeologist’s dog!
On Saturday, I saw her gnawing on something that she was holding between her front paws. It was an old rusty screwdriver! I am amazed that we have not had to take this dog to the vet. I see stories of dogs that have been x-rayed because they swallowed keys or a kitchen knife or some crazy thing, wonder if/when that day will come for us and pray that it doesn’t. I also pray that she becomes more of a finicky eater, but, at least for now, that dog just lives to eat! And play!
occasionally sleep (in the oddest, most comical positions, I might add),
and always, of course, be cute!
