Peppers for my saucy girl
Well, last night my husband and I were grilling out, and we cut up some green and red peppers for an appetizer. So we were stuffing our faces, when my husband George asked, "Do you think the chins would like peppers?" Now, we are pretty standard with our treats these days. We give raisins, although in the past I've given other dried fruit and rosehips and small pieces of fresh fruit. So we decided to give it a try. I know their not supposed to have a lot of greens, but I figured at least they would be a low in sugar treat.
So we went to the cage with a red pepper strip (figured that red peppers had a sweeter taster and more vitamins) and this is how it went down.
Max said, "Yuck! Don't point that thing at me."
Muad'dib said, "Maybe I'll try a little. Yum! Or not! Yum! Or not!"
Maureen said, "Oh, this is great! Chomp! Chomp! Chomp! Hand over the rest, mommie! You know what, I'll take the boy's piece."
It will only be an occasional treat and it was only a raisin sized piece, but I was amused. My chins has taken bits of apple, peach, pear, or plum before but I've never gotten them to get past sniffing a vegetable. I'd also like to try orange and yellow peppers sometime.
Anyone else get their chins to eat odd treats?
