What's New with Biscuit?

Many* of you have been asking how Biscuit is and what she's been up to these days.

Here are some updates:

She had to go to the vet a couple weeks back for a mysterious gaping, oozy wound on the side of her neck. Thankfully, it was just a "hot spot" that had gone awry. The vet gave her a shot of steroids and sent us home with a daily ointment (and a nice little $160 bill).

Since her hot spot was in just the right positioning that a funnel collar was pointless, and bandage wrapped all around her torso slipped off within minutes, the vet advised that we put an old t-shirt on her to prevent scratching and irritation. As soon as I heard about the shirt suggestion, I knew the perfect thing.

I KNEW THIS DOG COAT WOULD COME IN HANDY ONE DAY.


Last week, I saw this cool dog toy at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

It's a dog puzzle where you hide little treats under each slide-able circle and the dog has to sniff around and figure out how to get to the treat. It was a little pricey, but it was one of those "smart" dog toys that keeps dogs busy for hours. I figured it would be good for those long days when Boyfriend and I are at work.

Yes! Great idea!! I'm pet owner of the year because I think about smart dog toys to keep my dog entertained for hours because she's a fucking dog genius and needs brain stimulation all day long!!! High five to myself!!!

Yesterday, Boyfriend came home to this...

Hm. Not exactly the outcome I was hoping for with my new genius-dog-toy.

Or maybe she's smarter than I originally thought.

I love that Biscuit has embraced military jackets. She really shuts it down.

Biscuit looks like one sexy bitch in that coat!
And yeah, I think whoever invented that dog toy is a moron, of course that's what's going to happen! If my dog didn't tear the thing apart I'd be worried.

Kara said...

Biscuit was all "fuck that noise" and chewed the bitch to pieces. If I were you, I might be a little proud.

Eat your heart out, Tim Gunn.

Eat only the TREATS in the doohicky brain toy, Biscuit.

at least biscuit didn't swallow the wood.

Deborah said...

I want that coat! It's cute.

Biscuit needs some sisters and brothers. How about Muffin, Roll, and Bun?

Lorraine said...

"Rip that shit apart" would be my answer to getting treats too. Not sure if this makes your dog extra smart or me extra...

Never mind.

Sorry about the hot spot and your dog being so smart.

Also, I said this like a week ago, but it must have gotten lost:

"Hey! How is Biscuit doing?"

ERIN - It IS a dog coat. I found it on sale at the vet office.

MANDY - Biscuit has always been ahead of the times when it comes to fashion.

ASHLEY - I know, it's a nice coat, right? I was a little embarrassed when I shelled out the money for it, but I quickly got over it once I saw how great (see: hilarious) it looked on her.

DEBORAH - When I first adopted Kosmo, the name "Gravy" was thrown around. (Obviously, it didn't stick.)
