Last night I was feeding carrots through the grater disk of my food processor to add them to coleslaw. Because I'm pretty lazy, I left the plug to the feed tube off and was adding carrots one by one as I peeled them. (Yeah, I know, I didn't really need to peel them.) I had my middle dog bouncing around at my feet and I thought she was just excited because she gets raw carrots as a treat. I suddenly realized the processor was spitting the small ends of the carrot out at high speed and with a nice trajectory. Great dog game catching the bits. Much more fun than being asked to 'sit up and say please'! Mum, mum, do it again! :lol:

Hey Jeannie I think you may have caught on to something! Not only are you preparing a lovely coleslaw, you are giving a healthy treat to your pooch. Multitasking at it's finest!! Good work. :emoticon-congratulations:

Ooh yes Jeannie, what a great game for dogs especially if they think they might get something out of it. ;)

Our dogs are always hanging around in the kitchen in the hope that there might be something in it for them; they're real opportunists! The worse thing is that they tend to drool if they can smell food being prepared, so the floor can get a bit slimey and wet......very hygenic ~ not! :blink: :lol:

Having been around 3 dogs for the long weekend, I can now imagine yours jumping up and down grabbing those bits of carrots. Have you ever tried playing croquette with 3 dogs? We attempted a game but every time we hit a ball, one or all of the dogs would chase after it, grab and drop it in all sorts of places. Needless to say, we never finished the game but had a BALL!!!! :D

Hi Jeannie,

My 10 1/2 yr. old female Yellow Lab, Sunny would be in heaven catching carrot pieces or anything else she can get her paws into. :rolleyes:

Thank you for sharing. :thank-you:
