I don’t make a habit of tossing or throwing food to my dogs.
Normally the only thing I will toss to them is a toy, and I’m normally standing about one foot in front of them and I gently toss it into their mouth.
Sherman can catch these tosses of toys.
Leroy can not.
Never could and probably never will. He lacks coordination and focus.
I will, on certain occasions, throw something AT Leroy.
The occasions being are when I’m trying to take a nap on the couch and Leroy is sitting on the other couch barking out the window at every leaf that flies by.
The object I throw is normally the Nerf football that is laying on the floor beside me, or the pillow and once I threw my flip flop at him, which ended badly because he started to eat it.
I never throw anything AT Sherman.
One does not throw things AT an angel.
So anyway, we rarely toss or throw anything to the dogs, which is why it was quite odd that my husband decided, the other night, to toss them tater tots that were leftover from dinner.
I was standing right there when he did it and I remembered thinking in my head that this wasn’t going to end pretty.
Big dogs just can’t catch little objects, especially little food objects.
At least my bog dogs can’t.
Well this time wasn’t going to be any different and not surprisingly Sherman missed his tater tot when it was tossed to him. It hit his nose and landed in front of him and he ate it.
Leroy’s tarter tot missing wasn’t so uneventful.
Leroy’s tot hit his forehead and bounced up on the counter and then bounced under the kitchen table and then under the refrigerator.
In his quest to catch the tot his tail knocked over my pop on the counter spilling it directly into my purse. He took out 3 kitchen chairs and flipped the kitchen table and then the tot went under the refrigerator,
Just so you know, determined big dogs chasing after a tater tot can move a fridge.
I kept hearing the song of the little meatball on top of spaghetti, just replace the poor meatball with poor tater tot and instead of the meatball being mush the tater tot was covered in dog hair.
Sherman and Leroy are unable to catch tater tots and Leroy can move refrigerators.
