Colby loves food more than any other dog I've ever met. She LOOOOVES food. She has her favorites that most dogs love, like peanut butter and cheese and meat. But she loves everything, including carrots, toast, bananas, scrambled eggs... These aren't things we intentionally feed her, but rather food that she's stolen from right in front of us.
I will never forget the time I was cutting up vegetables for a homemade minestrone soup in our kitchen. Colby started begging me for the onion I was chopping. I warned her she wouldn't like raw onion, but when I gave her a tiny piece she chomped it up and started loudly whining, begging for more onion. There's nothing this dog won't eat. We've tried training her but she's the most stubborn little thing! I think she knows how cute she is and uses it to her advantage.
I made the mistake of sitting this half-eaten bagel on the counter and turning my back. I heard a fast scrape of her nails as she launched herself off the floor vertically, then a loud thudding sound resonated. Here's the moment after I grabbed my camera.
She’s a cockapoo so her ears naturally hang down and flop around. The fact that they’re airborn cracks me up. She really got some height in those jumps!
Almost got it! I didn’t let this go on for long. Just a few hops and clicks of the camera to document her downright "dogged" determination (I can’t resist a canine pun)!
