Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter

September 20, 2007


Going in or coming out? Hard to tell, I know, but trust me, Clayton was eating that baby carrot, not barfing it. It always surprises me when people say, "Really? Your dogs eat carrots?" Well, duh, of course they do, they're beagles. Last night I gave Clayton a sugar snap pea while I made a salad and he gobbled it right up and asked for more. Clayton won't eat lettuce but he'll eat everything else. Spenser has become pickier as he's gotten older and he will carefully sniff the proffered treat to decide if it merits his attention. Last week I saw him actually leave his supper bowl when the wet food was gone and only the dry remained. But he doesn't turn down carrots and thoroughly enjoyed a garlic crouton last night. Scooter was a tentative eater when it came to new foods and would often take the mystery morsel into the living room and, unsure about it eating it, roll on it instead. Camouflage by grape, anyone?
