I came home last night from teaching, and saw something very strange. My daughter was holding a jar of peanut butter in one hand, and a spoon loaded with the nutty stuff in the other. The spoon was being licked by none other than our hundred pound German Shepherd, Schultz.
"What's going on here?" I asked. I couldn't believe he was being fed peanut butter right out of the jar.
"Schultz got hurt, and I'm trying to make him feel better," my daughter said.
"Exactly what happened?" I asked. I had a feeling this was going to be good.
"Bubba (my son) was stomping around the house, not paying attention. Schultz was lying down in the stair landing in the dark, having a nap, and Bubba stomped on him. Poor Schultzy yiped really loud!"
I could just imagine.
My daughter continued. "So we gave Schultzy lots of ice cubes and peanut butter, so he knows we still love him."
I'm happy to report that Schultz has suffered no lasting effects from his meeting with Bubba's foot. Let's hope it doesn't happen, again, because I don't want to have to keep buying new jars of peanut butter!
Oh, but dogs love peanut butter! And nothing funnier than watching them eat it. Sorry he got stepped on.ReplyDelete
When he was a puppy, we used to put peanut butter in his cong. He loved getting it out!Delete
Nice! At least she didn't use Nutella.ReplyDelete
He probably would've died if she had done that!Delete
Now I want to hurt my foot on purpose just so I can get a jar of peanut butter fed to me.ReplyDelete
Haha! I hope Schultz doesn't deliberately get underfoot now!Delete
Poor doggy! I'm glad he wasn't really hurt, although I wouldn't want a dog eating my peanut butter either. Yuck!ReplyDelete
Obviously that jar got tossed!Delete
Peanut butter is a good comfort food. You'll have to keep an extra jar on hand just for such emergencies. :)ReplyDelete
Yes. I plan to buy a couple more in case something like that happens, again.Delete
isn't peanut butter dangerous for dogs like chocolate is too?ReplyDelete
No. It's anything with high contents of sugar or cocoa, basically. They also can't have grapes or other similar fruits. We've always used peanut butter or cheese to give our dogs medication.Delete
Rachel is correct. Dogs love peanut butter and it's good for them.Delete
I hope it doesn't do what it does to me-lots of tummy issues -but I am sure it made him feel very loved. :)ReplyDelete
Schultz loves peanut butter!Delete
Doh! Oh my. Kids. I'm not thinking that's the greatest reward, but I guess what doesn't kill him...ReplyDelete
We've used peanut butter to help Schultz take pills. He loves the stuff.Delete
Poor puppy! I hope it doesn't happen again, because Schultz doesn't need any injuries, you don't need to keep buying peanut butter, and he doesn't need to learn to be pitiful to get peanutbutter.ReplyDelete
My mom's dog got attacked and had a nail almost ripped off. So my mom bandaged her up and got her taken care of medically. Well the dog just limped around and cried and begged for food, because they had gotten her to stay still for the bandaging process by bribing her with treats. Such a drama queen.
I'll say she was a drama queen! You have to watch what you reward. Dogs are pretty smart.Delete
That is cool :)ReplyDelete
It was a silly sight to see!Delete
Pleased your dog is ok, never heard of one eating peanut butter though. Great post.ReplyDelete
Lots of dogs love peanut butter.Delete
Schultz loved all the attention.Delete
Poor guy deserved it after his stompingReplyDelete
I'm sure being stomped on by a 90 pound kid wasn't fun at all!Delete
Glad Schultz is okay and got to eat peanut butter by the tonReplyDelete
I'm wondering how that peanut butter is going to be coming out the other end!Delete
I'm glad the poor pup is okay. Peanut butter is a good comfort food. :)ReplyDelete
Yes, it is!Delete
I think giving p.b. to Schultz was a good way to help him feel better. He should probably get his own jar every day.ReplyDelete
Then he'd be fat. No daily jars of peanut butter for the puppy!Delete
Maybe just a very small jar?Delete
Nice he wasn't hurt. They are good friends indeed to share peanut butter.ReplyDelete
I'm sure Schultz appreciated it.Delete
Glad he wasn't hurt and I hope he feels pampered. My dog hates peanut butter, but I know most dogs love it.ReplyDelete
Schultz felt quite good after all the ice cubes and peanut butter!Delete
Aw, poor Schultz! Peanut butter is always yummy, so no wonder your daughter thought that would help cheer him up, haha.ReplyDelete
Maybe it would help keep his mouth shut so he wouldn't bark at the deer, too!Delete
Cool post ! Dogs love peanut butter, lucky...he had an awesome time and a yummy treat :)ReplyDelete
Schultz really likes peanut butter. It's one of his favorite treats.Delete
Poor Schultz. Glad there are no long lasting affects of being stomped on. Peanut butter and ice can make things all better for a dog. : )ReplyDelete
