hee hee! a while back we tried to teach lucy to catch food in her mouth when we tossed it... she was doing well, but would generally let EVERYTHING hit her in the face except cheeseballs :) so we trained her on that and moved to popcorn and today it was MINTY CHRISTMAS SKITLES she is sooooo funny. while i'm eating them she comes over and sits pretty and waits for me to drop one, and she started catching them :) when she misses she freaks out looking for it :) i just thought it was funny because she is the only dog i've ever managed to get to catch things in the air rather than let them hit her in the face :)

LUcy licking her mouth
I am feeling: amusedamused

no offence hon but should you really be feeding your dog that? :s

considering the fact that she gets one or two human "Treats" a day and is not overweight or has any other health issues, then i don't think its that big of a deal do you? if i were feeding her bags upon bags then it would be terrible.

I suppose, its just that sugar isnt the best for them is all. I didnt mean any offence by the comment.

no sugar isn't the best for us either :) i didn't take offense! we've finally found a food she likes well enough to catch in her mouth too :) i probably should have mentioned *that* when i posted. and I should have mentioned that she got about 5-6 skittles :) not a whole bag or anything :)
