Biscuit trees and squeaky toys!

Category: Yard work! | Posted: Mon Feb 26, 2007 3:00 am

We have this weird dog named Chance. She likes to bury things. We used to bring her these yeast biscuits from a restaurant where we went to eat. She'd give a big sign and take the biscuit and head out to the yard. We could never figure out where she put them. We finally gave up bringing them to her. I think it was the size because if dr would break them into pieces she would eat them. We bought her some chew bones and she also buries them. Last summer we bought her a squeaky toy. She looked at it and picked it up and headed outside with it. When we went outside it was no where to be found. So, on Christmas we bought another one just like it. She picked it up and headed out the door. It, too, disappeared. While I was looking for it I found the one she buried last year. About a week ago I was looking at a spot by the shed where we want to add a flower bed. There I saw a piece of blue and dug up the squeaky toy from Christmas. She has squeaky toys all over the yard. She has them all over the house, too. I pick them up and put them in the basket and she goes and takes them out again. She does have favorites and when dr says where's the squeaky she runs and gets one of them. Last night I was playing squeaky with her. She usually won't play with me because I don't know the rules. dr says it's like Calvin ball, the rules change with every toss of the squeaky. Tonight when we were eating supper I heard her chewing on something. I got up and looked and she had a stick from the woodbox. dr must have dropped one when he started the fire. I took it from her and told her that sticks were not for dogs to chew. She looked so down that I broke a cornmeal biscuit in half and gave her one half. You are right! She heaved this big sign, picked it up and headed for the door. She came back without it. Then she went and sat by dr's chair looking for a handout. I fully expect as the weather warms up the yard will begin sprouting biscuit trees and squeaky toys. Dooley

I would love to see what a biscuit tree looks like!! You should see Mama;s "son" Oreo and all his squeaky toys... he had like 20 of them in Mama's bed..all at the same time!! Dogs sure can be silly, but what would we do without them!

Don't our fur babies love their squeakies? Dooley, when those biscuits start blossoming, I'll give you Ursula's address, which just happens to be ours as well.

That is so funny dooley.Oreo has to take a toy to bed every night sometimes he sneaks 2 so to our bed and it gets loaded down.
I can just see Chance watching for a biscuit and squeaky toy to grow as your plants do maybe she thinks your plant grow why not a tree from those.
I really wonder why she does that.

Well Chance sees you digging in the ground and putting things in the holes so she's obviously a gardener at heart too. LOL

I think all the time Chance is outside he is looking for his things to grow. What a disappointment for him. Wannabe

Hi Dooley,
I haven't figured out all the tricks of this place yet, hope that this gets to you. I am from Mequon, just north of Milwaukee, and we retired to Land O' Lakes. We are right on the Wisconsin - Upper Michigan border. Just the opposite as most, we went north. We have lived up here for several years and 1 year in the new house. Not sorry at all we made this choice. We have friends and relatives in both Phoenix and Tucson. Heard nothing but good things about that area. Calomaar
