Apple Core Thief

on May 26, 2008

I’ve been responsible for making Jasmine an apple core thief.

Jasmine loves apples.  I share my morning apple with her every day.  Of course, the pieces I give her must be peeled.  😉  Unfortunately, I sometimes forget to throw away the core and leave it, wrapped in a napkin, on a plate on the coffee table.  I then go run errands, and when I return, the apple core and napkin are on her doggie bed, what flesh remained now gingerly shaved off of the core.  And of course, since I didn’t catch her in the act, there’s nothing I can do about correcting her.  Besides, she’s not the one that needs correcting.  *I* need to stop leaving the apple cores where she can reach them.

Other than her penchant for apples, Jasmine seems not to take notice of the myriad of “chewable” items around her house.  She’s happy to chew on a bone (only when I’m around, through–she leaves it if she’s alone), and the only things laying around that seem to have any attraction to her are my husband’s socks and anything with a rope tied to it.  Otherwise, she’s a perfect little pup.

So, I’m guilty for making Jasmine into an apple core thief.  I’ll have to learn to quickly put away those cores…lest I make more of a problem for myself–and her!

    Our little Kona loves apples as well, we put apples and carrots in his Kong when we leave the house so he can occupied when we leave for work… but we stay away from giving him the core because I’ve heard that the seeds in apples contain cyanide… probably not enough to kill a human, but who knows for pets? 🙂 Just an FYI 🙂

    Yipes…another reason for me to be diligent and NOT leave the core around. Thanks!
