Another Mandy-and-Buddy story

Mandy doesn't like most of the leather chew-things for dogs, but she does enjoy these.  They're $2.50 or so a box, but there are several in a box, and she'll chew on the same one for days.

I used to give them to her outside, but I finally realized Buddy ends up with them; and he'll chew up the whole thing in five minutes flat.

The thing is, the two dogs have this game.  Mandy will go prancing over toward him with the chewie in her mouth, chomping on it and letting as much as possible stick out, so Buddy can't miss seeing what she has.  If he doesn't notice right off the bat, she'll give it a little toss in the air and let it fall to the ground to lure him over.  That never fails to work, and the tug-of-war begins.  Buddy always wins, which what Mandy has in mind all along.

I do love watching them play their game, but because of the price of those things, I normally make Mandy stay in the house with them.  This morning, though, she wanted out SO badly with her chewie.  I told her no several times, but she kept giving me that pathetic look and walking to the door.

The pictures tell the rest of the story.  If I'm having a bad day, all I have to do to cheer up is give Mandy a chewie, send her outside, and watch this saga replay itself.  It never fails to make me laugh out loud.

Thank you for making me smile this morning, Mosie.  I needed that, more than you know!  What better way, than through animals.  They are a comfort no matter what they are doing, and never fail to bring a smile to my face... :)

NOTHING better than a Mandy/Buddy story! Morgan loves Chewies, but I've found she likes the flavored ones best. They used to last her a long time, but now not so much <g>. We also keep 'cookies' and 'yogurt' chips for her... All doggy brands, of course.

Cute entry, seem as if Mandy would rather play and tease Buddy than actually eat the chewie. Helen

I can almost see them playing in my yard!  And what a face she has!  Too cute to deny.  Blessings, Penny

I have never heard of them.  We use to have two great danes and their favorite treats were the kongs with peanut butter in them.  Our one dog would take the empty peanut butter jar from me.  
Sorry your having a bad day.  At least the dogs were there to try and cheer you up.

Hey Donna - d'you think you could make your own chewies out of the pig you butchered?  I see the smoked pig ears all the time in the dog section at the grocery store and think of you...

I swear Buddy looked like he was saying "Nana Nana Boo Boo".  I think they would be lost without each other.
