{08jan2010: apple treat}

One of Darwin's favorite treats is an apple.  It's more fun to give her the whole round apple so she can push it around, but because seeds are bad for her we take the time to core them before she gets them.  Usually when one of us heads to the kitchen and reaches for an apple (we have to keep them on the fridge cause if she can see them on the counter she'll stand there and whine and carry on til she gets one) she'll eagerly follow us and pace frantically til we core it.  We've taken to putting peanut butter in the middle because it's funny to watch her work at eating it especially when the peanut butter gets coated on her tounge. 

Here's a video of her latest apple eating adventure:
The video is a bit long, but the funniest part to me is around the 4:22 mark when her tongue just seems to get stuck hanging out of her mouth.  hehe.


  1. Hello Darwin,

    It's nice to meet you. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love to meet other great danes. You are a lovely young lad. As you may have read I'm an old lady of 8 years old. Even though I'm old I've never had an apple or peanut butter...maybe I can convince my mom to give me some to try.

  2. Darwin! It takes you five minutes to eat an apple? You would starve to death around here. PeeWee and I swallow everything with great haste. But of course you are a lady.

    That tongue sticking out was too funny. I think you must have been getting tired.


  3. That is hilarious...what a great idea! Nala likes apples too!

  4. Wow! that was hilarious tongue action. Apples are awesome for doggies. Not to freak you out but the seeds are toxic. the seeds contain cyanogenic glycosides which can result in cyanide poisoning. I core any apples i give the doggies.

    it's so good Darwin likes good raw healthy foods!
