I gave Charlie (the wolfie) and Jake (the border dummy) each their Christmas present this morning...a large bone called a Chewlotta. Charlie loves these and took her time enjoying hers, but when I looked at Jake he had gobbled his and was standing there with a large chunk of it stuck at the back of his mouth. I ran over and used the finger scoop to sweep it out of his mouth. Okay, that's not the dumb part; lots of dogs gobble their food. The thing is when I got it out of his mouth, I tosed the chunk off into the bushes and went to get him a piece of cheese instead. When I got back there was Jake with the chunk of chewlotta stuck at the back of his throat again and he wouldn't let me near him...guess he thought I was going to 'take' it from him again! The SO walked over and grabbed him by the scruff and did the finger sweep. We threw the chunk in the garbage and he finally got his piece of cheese. I swear if that dog had fingers he'd be sticking them in light sockets non-stop!
