Thanks to a thorough scientific experiment, Landon has learned some important things regarding the physics of water bowls.
Yesterday, Landon was quietly sitting in the back seat of the Jeep. The Hu-Dad totally forgot an important rule – whether it is a puppy or a new rescue, the moments that humans should be most afraid is when the dog is quiet. Once Hu-Dad became suspicious, he realized that Landon had found the secret storage area for our collapsible water bowls.
Landon had carefully chewed a couple of holes into the water bowl, rendering it useless for holding water.
Fortunately, we have several bowls in the Jeep at all times. Something about always having a backup.

How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.

Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
Landon is just checking to see how alert Hu dad is. He pleads the 5th on this matter. Any further questions are to be answered by his attorney Typhoon……
If it is left where I can see it, it is mine. If it smells like me, it is mine. If its yours….its mine. If I want it, its mine.
Have the humans forgotten these simple Siberian rules?
You learn, don’t you? I’m pretty sure Golden’s and Sibes are related somehow…. Might just be the floof.
Monty, Harlow, and Ramble
I forgot the rule too the other day, Chance got a new can of dog food (unopened) and chewed it so it was squirting canned food all over his bed, while he had the time of his life eating it up!
Rule applies even to 8 year old dogs! 🙂
Landon has lots to discover in his new home. He appears to be a pretty well behaved boy.
(I have a non-chewing husky. The toys I bought her years ago still look like new. She sleeps under the bed and has them lined up against the wall. Have to drag them out to vacuum and put them back.)
Our Beagle Mix dances in her water bowl.
Uh oh! But you can’t really be mad at a face like that!
I failed to follow that same rule about being most concerned when a puppy is quiet. After a few minutes of quiet, Daisy came back into the room with the mat from under her water dish in her mouth. The dish was almost entirely undisturbed. I wish I had been paying closer attention! 🙂
Ebby sez: That’s why our hu-Mom always buys, I think she called it “bakelite” food and water dishes, because she says it seems to be a “Siber rule” that if it’s soft plastic, or vinyl, it’s meant to chew on.
