Pumpkins

Why do my dogs insist on 'not' being dogs?

Let me go further.
Halloween is approaching and I find that I will NOT be putting the traditional big real pumpkin on the porch. Why? you might be asking. My dogs will eat them. Yep in past years, they have eaten each and every one. I shouldn't find this surprising. Sam also ate every pepper both hot and mild out of the garden. EVERY-PEPPER. He also has a thing for tomato's. Go figure.

Maybe this is a country dog thing. Years ago when the kids were small we found we couldn't hide Easter eggs outside either. Our GoodBoy would follow behind us and as we hid the eggs. He would wait till we moved away then he would eat them. Shells and all. Took a few times to figure out where they were all going, but he was caught with a pink one in his mouth. So busted. He must have eaten 30 in one day. And nope it didn't make him sick or anything. He lived to be like five hundred in dog years. Honestly he was 16 I think.

That's your dogs for you. They are all crazy! Did you have to start calling GoodBoy Stinkyboy? I can't imagine what 30 eggs would do to his digestive system.
