Now that everyone's gone back home, I'm trying to get Alfie back into his routine as I go about my post-Christmas cleanup chores. Alfie, having a strong fetching instinct, considers that his part in this endeavor is to locate and retrieve every stray item. Imagine my surprise when he turned up with this!
Look, I didn't even tear the wrapper!
Well, to be honest, he didn't bring it straight to me. I noticed him prancing around with something yellow and inquired if he'd be interested in coming and trading for a kibble. The kibble won out right away, of course. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED when I discovered what it was because, as I'm sure you know, chocolate is toxic to dogs. On the other hand...the chocolate lover in me couldn't help but wonder...have I discovered a new use for this dog? Imagine the possibilities...a dog who can seek out and retrieve chocolate...WOW.
Okay, back to reality! We've checked around and to the best of my knowledge there aren't any more dangerous candies lying about for him to get into (if we only knew the truth, the first one may not have been lying around either...I wouldn't put it past him at all to "fetch" it off the furniture!)
Here's hoping you all had a very merry Christmas...WITHOUT any Butterfinger Retrievers!
