Cousins and Bitey Face

Our humans were over at our cousins’ (Tartok and Ruby) house (aka – our hu-grandparents’ house) and gave us the report that there was a major bitey face competition going on.  We are sure that the six of us would have greatly added to the festivities, but, somehow, our humans thought a quiet dinner would be a better idea.

And the naps are over

By the way, for those of you keeping score, Ruby has snarfed more bread.  After the humans’ dinner, they were all sitting in the den and talking.  Ruby came walking into the den with a 1/4 loaf of the Italian bread that the humans had left in the kitchen, plopped herself down, and ate it before the humans could react.  Another score!

    Ruby is such a role model. I can only hope to achieve just a small percentage of her greatness.

    Bitey face looks like fun. Maybe someday we’ll give it a try. In the meantime, eating bread is a good alternative.
    Love

    I do love the biteyface attack, its fantastically fantastical!! Thanks for the comment! I do hope Prince recovers good and gets good results! I did notice that two of you have the same names as my two friends Qannik and Kodiak!! Kodiak is my favourite, I was his Dogtor when he hurt his paw when he was a lil pupper. I hope we can be friends you are all so handsome and pretty!! Sibes are my favourite kind of friends, they aren’t afraid of good rough play (cue: biteyface attack)

    Way to go Ruby! Did you share any with Tartok?

    What is it with you Ruby reds and the bitey face? I don’t get it!! My friend Ruby wanted to play bitey face with me all weekend just like your Ruby does!

    Oh wait. I do that, too. Only to Holly and Samuel.

    Nevermind.

    Great bitey face shots..
    Louie is our bread monster. Mom came home on Monday to find an empty plastic bag that did contain 10 rolls. Mom thought it was kind of funny since the twist tie was still in tact…

    someone needs to tell Ruby about fast carbs and how they go straight to the hips… 😉 Bread is like crack to Juno. Ruby and Juno would probably have gladiator wars over a loaf…

    love the mouth fighting! it cracks me up when mine do it because juno’s mouth is so much smaller than my alligator’s (Loki’s) so she she has to pull her lips back and show her gums just to compete with him and she looks ferocious when she does it!

  13. JacksDaddy on November 5, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    Well, I think you should just make them a new loaf of bread every day! That will show them! 🙂

  14. Mochi on November 5, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    Great job getting the bread! 🙂

    Aww, I wish I had someone to play bitey face with!

    We both love bread!!!! We also love bitey face – cool pics!

  16. Stella on November 5, 2009 at 11:50 am

    I love this, I guess mostly because I had a bread-addicted dog. You never had to buy treatz for them because your bread box/drawer was full of them and thats all they wanted, ever!

    Has she ever had a sandwich? A PB rollup and her life would never be the same!

    Carry on, Ruby, I like it too!

    Cheers,

    Kudos to Ruby on another bread score!!! And nothing like a great game of bitey face. I seem to do a lot of that with Phantom, now I just need to figure out how to get him to play too.

    Woos, TD

    Woooo Ruby! Great job snagging the bread! What fun. I wish I could have been there too!

    I thought mine were the only ones played bitey face while lying down! All that Husky energy and they are on their sides playing!!!

    Maybe bread has some key nutrient that Ruby needs! She sure seems attracted to bread… When our dog developed a bad wild mushroom habit, we tried adding store-bought mushrooms to her food. It didn’t help in the least…

    I love bitey face and the sounds that go along with it – the sound of happiness, I think. Ruby sure has fit in well at her new home!
