Maggie v. the Seltzer Bottle August 30, 2006

Posted by caveblogem in Other.

Maggie the Westie (15 weeks old now) squares off against her first seltzer bottle, a generic Hannaford raspberry lime (empty).


She pushed it around with her nose a little but freaked when it rolled around a little.  So she backed off to a respectable distance and just barked at it.


It’s a little puzzling.  Our old dog, who died this last spring at age 14, was the same breed.  And she used to love these things.  She particularly liked Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail bottles.  These she would carry carefully by the opening until they hit against the floor or a wall or something and she lost the tenuous grip she had and they skittered away.  This was great because they prompted another chase.  She would do this for twenty minutes at a time.  We often let her, even though the decible level made it impossible even to carry on a conversation, much less study or get something accomplished.  She seemed so happy doing it.  I’m looking for some pics of that, which I’ll post.

Our cocker spaniel Buddy loves an empty seltzer bottle, too, but not the same one for long. Apparently, after a day the bottle no longer needs chasing, but a new one of the same variety is good sport all over again.
