Favorite Picture of the Week

 
Earlier this month Ken spent 10 days in California dog/house sitting for his sister and brother in law. So it was just Falcor and I for 10 days. I didn't want him getting bored so I made a few new toys for him including an empty plastic water bottle which he never gets bored with and then I made a huge ice cube for him to play with or lick or whatever. At first he just stared at it and when it popped because it was melting, Falcor started barking at it. 

Here he was waiting for it to start popping and crackling again. He stared at it for a good 2 minutes and then walked around it. 

After about 30 minutes he sniffed it and started licking it. Silly dog. 


And this is one of the dogs that Ken was dog sitting for.

  1. My late dog used to love ice. I'd put some in her water bowl as well

  3. Oh that's too funny! I wondered about the big ice blocks and trying them for the herd. Do you make them with balloons?

    That's real nice Ken is able to do that for his siblings. Cute pup, too!

    1. I had a nice vacation as well. lol Unfortunately 2 days before he left I fell down and broke my toe and sprained my elbow so I was in pain but I'm feeling better now.

  6. Is it dumb that I would think his tongue could get stuck to the ice? LOL . . . I've never had a pet, Mary!

    1. Never had any kind of pet? You could start out with a fish. I had poured water over it to get it out of the bowl so no chance of his tongue sticking to it. lol

  8. I remember I had an old lab who loved to play with ice; notably ice runoff in a river. He'd love to bounce it about and grab it then throw it.

  13. You came up with an idea...giving ice to dogs in hot weather is a way of getting them to keep cool too.
