If we spill anything in our house, the dogs are on top of it - but there appears to be some supernatural draw to coffee and beer that leave the floor cleaner than it started following a spill.
When Suvi was little, I brought her to kickball. When my team was out in the field, she strategically spilled the beers sitting on the bench, one by one, and licked up the puddles off the ground. She was out like a light by the time we drove home...I'm convinced she was drunk!
|Don't worry - it was empty. She was still determined to find a few drops, though!|
Just the other night, we were enjoying beers on the deck, and Ramsey crawled right over Chad, into the corner of the patio couch, so she could try to drink my beer when I wasn't looking! Pablo seems to have the same draw, but either he's sneakier about it, or just too short to get his face into trouble - but should we spill something on the floor, he claims his prize without letting the girls near!
So what is it? This phenomenon can't just be affecting our dogs? Is it like with kids - they want it just because they know they can't have it? If so, why aren't they begging for onions, or chocolate?
