I just had to put that out there.
Today we received a package in the mail. In there was an awesome squeaker toy (i ate within a min of having it) and a bag of "rollover" snacks.
Devin was smart and closed my crate door so I couldn't get back in there with my new toy. I chomped away on that for sometime on the floor until I chewed off one of the knobby things. After I destroyed that Devin gave me the "rollover" to munch on.
I was doing good until I was a little more than halfway done. Devin saw me pop the whole thing into my mouth, short time after I spit it out and would do that a few more times. I scratched my head with my front paw, that first alerted Devin that something wasn't right. I stopped doing that after one swipe. Devin watched me a bit more, then I started up again. Devin quickly grabbed my hind legs and held my back end up like a wheelbarrow to let gravity do its thing with me. I managed to get it out from my throat. Devin was too slow in taking it away, as soon as it popped out, I quickly grabbed it up again and finished it off.
Before I got the choking point, Devin was concerned and tried to "trade up" for a different treat. I wasn't budging on the one I had though. Was far too tasty! Lesson learned today... Unfortunately almost the hard way.
I went off into my crate and napped the remainder of the day away - much like the morning.
I even had a bit of ETS going on this evening. I tell you, the retired like here is greyt! Well aside from having the camera in my face practically 24/7. The only relief i seem to get is when my Human "Devin" goes to sleep for the night. I know i'm guaranteed a few hours of non blinding lights.
