It happens every Spring when the grass comes alive and I’m finding unusual stuff on the ground. Well, I have a great excuse this year. I did not have a chance to experience Spring last year as I lived in HI, where it’s summer weather at all time. I’m just super Golden happy and excited to be home. I did miss my backyard and been busy scouting my yard for my Furry Friend, FRED. In my search for Fred, I end up finding these little round pellets from my other backyard friend that hops around my yard. As I sniff the little round pellets it looks just like my kibble, I can’t help but to eat it along with some green grass. I did not eat a lot and/or indulge in them but I have a very sensitive stomach. Did I have some regrets? Absolutely! Digestive Regrets!
For the past weeks, we read many articles and blog posts about other dogs having issues with bunny poops in their backyard. What is with the bunny poops that fascinates dogs to eat it? Based on our readings, dogs don’t think it’s poop. Well, as I said it looks like my food kibbles.
Smell and taste of bunny poops are intriguing to dogs. Why?
A bunny eats leaves, twigs and barks which contains some protein and flavor.
It surely disgusts my mom and at the same time very worried that will cause me to have Coccidiosis, intestinal parasites. So it is important for your vet to check your dog’s stool couple of times in a year. For days I’ve been banned from my backyard as mom did a bunny poop patrol and our gardener Mark apply some nutrients on our yard. This weekend, I was allowed back to be in my backyard with supervision. I am Golden Happy to report that I am finally mending from my digestive regrets.
My backyard bunny is a seasonal friend and it’s no longer visiting my yard. I made a Golden Promise to mom that I’ll be a good dog in the backyard … will occupy most of my time searching for My Furry Friend. Now that the bunny is gone, I hope to see Fred soon. With my good behavior this weekend, mom surprised me with a delish tasty treat. I invite you to check my post tomorrow, Tasty Tuesday. I was in Golden Awww on what she made me.
From my previous backyard behavior, I am joining this post to Monday Mischief.
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs
