Tin Pan Head

We seem to attract the weird ones at the Waffle House. We agreed to watch Tamika for a few days while her person was out of town on business. She had been with us once before, and didn't do much to endear herself to Waffle. I guess she was picking on Waffle's friend Nisha, which Waffle feels is her right ONLY! Anyway Miss T is very smart. Think too smart for her own good. While staying with another raiser she learned how to use the indoor ice dispenser on their refrigerator and treated the other pups in the house to a little happy hour treat.

So while here she developed a new habit. Keep away with the dinner dish. Don't know why, she didn't do it at her house, she was running around the yard with it, fighting with Waffle clutching it in her mouth.

The dish she is carrying in her mouth is actually two bowls stacked. When they would get knocked apart she would simply re-stack them, pick them up and keep going.

How the tin pan head could see around the bowl is anyone's guess. I tried to talk to her about this pan thing and she pretty much told me to mind my own business. I think she was just bored, she and Waffle would play fairly nicely, but her raiser said when she is bored she will make her own entertainment. Glad we could be of service.

What a smart dog! She puts the bowls back together before running?!
I haven't heard of a Lab that smart :)

She is one smart pup! Rocky would love to figure out how to open our freezer to get some ice! Rocky also love to carry around his food bowls, we have to go on a hunt for the bowls most mornings. Thankfully he doesn’t play keep away with them.

I watched like a hawk when Tamika got back home to see if she would pick up her bowls. Never looked twice at them unless there was food in them. Go figure. Crazy dog.
