Peanut Muncher

My daughter received a package in the mail that was loaded with a bunch of styrofoam peanuts. After she had taken out the item that was inside, she left the box on the floor.

"You had better clean that up," I said, "or you-know-who is going to mess with it!"

"Yeah, Mom," she said.  "Later."

Later never came.  But you-know-who did.  Yes, our furry German Shredder, Schultz, made an appearance and stuck his big black snoot in the box.  He sniffed around, and decided that those peanuts looked good enough to eat.  He grabbed a mouthful.  A couple got impaled on his bottom fangs.

That dog shook himself like a mad man trying to get those things off.  And then he pawed at his face. You should've seen it!

"Schultz," I said.  "Come here, you goofball."

I made him stay still and slid the peanuts off of his teeth. (Fortunately, he didn't eat my fingers!)

"Next time, stick with doggy kibbles!"  

We'll see if he listens.

  2. *LOL* Silly dog! I got a package last week that had way too many peanuts in it, and of course, a toddler in the house plus packing peanuts equals I'm still finding them everywhere.

  6. Hi Sherry - it is so funny when they eat something that turns out to be not so edible or too hot etc ... glad your fingers were left in tact ..

    Cheers Hilary

    1. Yeah, I'm glad my fingers weren't eaten. I need them!

      I got the comment, so apparently it didn't go to spam. :)

  7. Schultz, white styrofoam peanuts are bad! Hope he didn't swallow any of them. Would hate to think of what might happen then.

    1. Probably nothing would've happened. I just would've had some interesting stuff to clean up when it came out the other end. ;)
