SECRET MISSION TO TWIN LAKES and “BUSYBONE” CHEWING TECHNIQUES

Yes, I still know how to bark at delivery trucks – UPS, FED EX, the U.S. MAIL trucks.  I still love to go bye-bye- in the Scion xB. In fact, My Dad took me on a mission to Twin Lakes, WI – a SECRET mission – I can’t even discuss the nature of the mission in this forum.  What?  OK.  I do have permission to reveal that My Dad took a side trip to a McHenry County Park located a short distance from our A/O (Area of Operations).  We were the only man and dog there, so, no worries about the under-informed busybodies of the world making comments like:

“Is that your dog?”  Duh, you think I drove out here by myself?

“Do you know you’re supposed to have your dog on a leash?”  And what would be different if I was on a leash?  Nothing…  Am I bothering you?

“Does he bite?”   Did I ever tell you your fingers resemble “Busybones?”  NO, I’ve never been a biter, I am an OFFICIAL good boy and a Therapy Dog!  C’mon over here and pet me.

I like it when My Dad stops at a park or nature area and I get an off-leash walk.  I can walk at my own pace, check out all of the interesting smells.  When we walked back to the car, My Dad places both of his arms under my chest and caboose and lifts me into the car…he is very gentle with me.

This morning I was feeling pretty good for an old guy and I wanted my daily BusyBone NOW!  But I never get the BusyBone immediately.  But, at some level, My Dad feels better when I am sassy with him.  My Dad places the BusyBone in a glass of warm water for about 10 minutes, to soften it just a bit.  Take a look at my BusyBone chewing technique…use of the big paws is crucial to a good chewing session.

Very important to have a firm grip on the BusyBone.
