A Dog and Her Bone

Here’s Valentine, guarding a horse vertebrae we found while camping in Utah this summer, during our cross-country drive.

That’s what it looks to actively wish you had hands, thumbs,
and the ability to walk upright on two legs

I put it on the floor while I was dusting so I wouldn’t forget to vacuum it out (it was stuffed with dead leaves from it’s tenure in the campground) and Valentine decided it was hers. She tried to carry it into her crate, only it was too big for her mouth. She’d pick it up, then drop it, then pick it up, then drop it, then try to pick it up again, only to drop it once more. (Apparently, Chihuahua/Terrier mutts aren’t designed to eat horses.) Finally she gave up and decided instead to sit and guard it. When I finally took it away from her she growled low in her throat, then ran off with her tail between her legs. It’s so cute when she tries to be ferocious.

  • I don’t know why but she always looks like she’s facing into a stiff breeze..

  • ‘Cita

    Now what harm would it do to let her keep it in her crate? After all, she has basically no teeth… ; )

  • dont put your puppy in a crate unlese youre potty training!

    • Yeah… we crate trained her when we were potty training, and now we just leave the door open so she can go in and out as she pleases. She likes to bring her toys, chews, etc., into the crate. She also goes in there when there’s too much going on in the house and she wants some peace and quiet. But thanks for the unsolicited advice! 🙂
