Toby had a special something
TOday that he found.
It was an orange tuber that was
Hiding in the ground.
He dug it up with his own paws
From its dark hiding place.
He showed it off to me and Mom
A huge grin on his face!
I wish I had the camera ready when Toby found this giant sweet potato (It was 9″-10″ long.) . I don’t think I have ever seen such a big smile on his puppy face. This just reinforced to him that digging in the garden is great fun.
I am tempted to hide a few potatoes in the dirt and set him loose to find them. If all goes well, the tilling should get done with very little effort on my part.
Hippie Toby says: I really dig gardening.
Come see what Bitey and Toby have been up to! In Dream Our World, the boys view the world of art from a canine perspective and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.
If you are wondering about Toby’s commentary on the Pollack picture, like most kids, he doesn’t appreciate abstract art. He is saying, “Heck, I could do that!”
Dig that picture.
Toby says: Eating all those sweet potatoes is a gas.
Probably like nitrous oxide.
Or noxious oxide.
Or just methane.
Is there such a thing as “just methane”? – signed any guy in the world.
Hee hee hee! Way to go, Toby!!!
“Wow, man. I can dig that.” –Toby, probably.
Missed this one at the time. Sweet potato is so preferable to raccoon poop! Way to go Toby.
Yuck. Not a garden surprise any human would want!
How come it thrills my daughter’s dogs?
I have heard that human noses are inside out compared to most other animals. Maybe it inverts the scents?
Except they seem to love our food just the same.
Way to go, Toby! You are a champion digger!
Sweet potatoes are a big favorite around the Ranch. Elsa loves them and has snuck in my pantry to snitch one. I slice and dehydrate them to make jerky and both of the knuckleheads love chewing on them. Me too, come to think of it. BOL
P.S. Thanks for swinging by the Ranch; we 💜 visitors.
Thanks for the dehydration suggestion. I bet Toby would enjoy them. : – )
Super easy to make. Even Mr. Picky (aka Sam) likes the dehydrated sweet potato chews. I make mine in a dehydrator, but you can do them in the oven too. Thinly slice & place on a parchment-lined paper baking sheet; bake in a 250º F preheated oven for 3 hours. If they are too soft, add 30 minutes or so to the baking time. Cool and store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 3 weeks or freezer for up to 4 months.
I love the images.
