Life journey of a dog

Soggy bread

Back here, you may remember Daisy’s “place mat”, which was a training tool I picked up from the Control Unleashed program.

It’s in the laundry room now, where Daisy can park herself for puppy breaks. It’s a wonderful, plush faux fur. A few times while changing the box sheets, the puppies will wander about and then join her on her mat for a snack.

Here’s the weird thing. The little guys are hog wild about the faux fur on the mat. They take to it like it’s mom and they’re famished, nuzzling for a teat to latch on to in a frenzy. It doesn’t look, smell, or feel like mom, but they are bound and determined.

That sight reminds me of when I was a kid growing ant farms (do kids do that anymore?). The food was slices of bread soaked in milk, which would get covered by ants sucking up the nutrients. Ants sucking on sliced bread have become puppies sucking on a furry place mat.
