To Chew or Not to Chew...that is the question!

Those of you who know me, knows that I L-O-V-E rawhides. In fact, I've asked to be paid in RAWHIDES for any kind of services that I do, You Can Pay Me in Rawhides! This is me holding my rawhide in my mouth!On this day, Mama got out of class early and came home during lunch time. We were all let out to relieve ourselves and Susie and Duke decided that they wanted to stay outside to sunbathe. I,...being the smarter puppy, decided that I would rather follow Mama inside because she is bound to have to eat lunch. She did! To keep my nose out from her lunch, Mama gave me a rawhide to keep me busy. Normally, I would chew, knaw, and eat the rawhide within 5 minutes of receiving it, but on this day...I decided I wanted to hide it. Mama managed to capture it on video. Look, I even brushed the air with my nose as if I was really burying it!

(CoCo's Mama here: CoCo actually walked all over the house for almost 20 minutes, trying to find the perfect spot to hide her rawhide. The video was only one of the few spots she choose to hide her bone. I think it was only due to Susie and Duke being outside did she decide to do that. CoCo eventually sat down to chew her treat when Susie and Duke came back inside from sunbathing. Dogs do the darndest things!)

Hi, CoCo!
Good job hidding it!
I have a jumbone that is not very tasty but I like to take it in my mouth and carry it around my house trying to bury it!
Kisses and hugs

I do this too!!! I hide/bury my chewies in people purses blankets and especially the couch. Then I come back to it when I'm ready.

Hi, CoCo...

I hide my treats like that, too...

I always remember where I hid them & then I go get them when I need a snack...

My Mom won't let me have rawhides, cuz when I was a puppy, I tried to swallow one whole...

I keep trying to tell her that I'm bigger now & I won't do that, but she won't believe me...

Coco you are SO smart to hide your treats in the furniture. I never thought of that...I'll have to try it with my bully sticks. Happy St. Patty's Day!

Sniffs and licks,

That was a great video! Good idea to hide your treat for later and the couch is the perfect place. Do you ever hide things outside in the dirt?


Bruschi said...

You are funny CoCo! I do the same thing! The couch is one of my favorite hiding places! As a matter of fact, just this week, Mommy was cleaning the cushions in the "formal" living room, aka my hangout spot, and she found the end of a rawhide bone that she thought I finished WEEKS ago! BOL! Even I had forgotten about it! So now I have to find a place to hide it again!

Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

pestkaj said...

Rambo said...

i don't hide or play with my treats. I just gobble them until they are gone! But you picked a good spot to bury yours!

Hey CoCo, I'm new around here but wanted to say Hi to a new friend! I love rawhides too, they are my fav. treat from my Mom.I like to hide under the bed and eat them so my big sister can't get them from me. You are a very cute puggle.. My mom was just telling me she wanted to get an all black puggle sister for me soon (: Welp CoCo I hope to talk to you soon! have a good day!


Preston said...

Awww...Coco, I did the same thing too! Hahah! The first time I tried to bury my bone in the couch, I brushed again and again until my nose started bleeding. Mommy caught it on a video, we could hear her scream about her couch (not my nose!). I always tried to hide my rawhide first but eventually found that my stomach was the safest place for it.


Bijou said...

Hi CoCo,

That is a good trick of hiding your rawhide. I do that with my treats so my baby brother doesn't get it.

This is my first time to your blog.
Even though I'm not a puggle, I hope we can be friends.

Wags & wiggles,

Oh, that is so funny Coco! You sure found a good spot to hide your chewy.

Hehe Coco, you're just too cute! I guess I don't need to do that. I've never seen LS interested in my treats or food although I love all her food.
