My answer is...
C) call the Great Dane to pick it up and eat it. I don't have to bend over and I get the entertainment of her acting like it's the first time she ever put something cold in her mouth. She's sweet, but not that bright.
Okay, the dog's deaf and if she can't tell I'm calling her, I pick it up. I don't toss it in the sink, though, it goes in a pitiful potted plant.
LOL! It was a nice thought. I love Great Danes; such gentle giants. :o)
