Dogs are many things, pets, family, coworkers, friends, protectors, snuggle buddies… The list goes on… However, sometimes they are just not understood at all.
Dogs can’t tell you that they feel weird or that they are in pain. They think that whatever they need to do to right themselves must be done by themselves. This is why dogs eat rough textured leaves and grasses to throw-up something that is bothering their bellies. This part of the equation I understand.
The part that I don’t understand is where my dog decides to actually place the ‘throw-up’. Sometimes, like humans, the ejection button gets pressed and you’re no where convenient to place the deposit. I have been there and completely understand that in these situations, wherever you are is where it’s going to land. However, on the other hand, when there looks to be a strategic placement of the erupted mess, I wonder if there wasn’t some thought behind it.
We have a one acre yard. One FULL acre to throw-up in at your leisure. ANYWHERE you’d like to let that eruption take place….
Yet, here is where Oreo decided to puke. Right on top of daddy’s shorts. 😯
Daddy wasn’t happy.
