Cubbie isn’t a fan of having me brush his teeth. So I thought maybe I would try giving him a denta bone so we don’t have to brush his teeth as often or as long.
Let’s just say my idea failed completely.
I gave Cubs the denta bone, and as soon as he got it he ran out the back door (it was still open while I was bringing in some groceries).
Normally he just chews on bones, but not this time. He ran straight for a patch of dirt behind the air conditioner and started burying the bone. By the time I saw him, it was already in the ground and his nose was covered in dirt.
A few minutes later the bone was back out of the ground and he was running around with it. I assumed that meant he was ready to chew, so I grabbed a book and sat in a chair in the backyard with him.
Well, he went back to the hole and buried the bone again. He ran around the yard a few times, then dug up the bone, then buried it yet again! What a goofball.
At one point he tried to bring it inside, and I put a stop to that. It was bad enough his face and paws were dirt covered, I wasn’t going to have this dirty bone in the house, too!
Since I wouldn’t let him bring the bone inside, it stayed out all night. Of course it got drenched in the rain and basically fell apart. So much for cleaning Cubbie’s teeth…
