My Dog Recycles! See How!

It's been awhile since I updated readers about Carmella and it's been a whole year (October 1st) now since she had the rare procedure to cure her from Distemper, and I am happy to report that she's doing great! I took some unusual "Fall photos" of her against the new flooring in the kitchen while she was eating a melon rind (well actually four halves from a honeydew and a canteloup).

Those of you who have been reading reliably since the beginning when I first got her will remember that she loves apples, but did you know she loves melon rind?

Talk about recycling! Now that takes "green" to a whole new level!

This is one unusual dog, for sure!

She certainly is determined...

to get every last bite of melon she can out of this thing!

I have to take it away from her when she reduces it to a mere shell

or she'd eat that too!

Once she completely guts one half, she moves onto another!

Now that's one way to get your RDA of antioxidants!

That is so cute. One of my dogs does this too. He loves his fruit. Smart dogs getting their antioxidants. LOL.

So glad Carmella beat distemper. Thanks for sharing about her treatment.

Your doggie is adorable. :) I posted a pic of my dogs on my facebook fan page... http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/photo.php?pid=2787134&id=122755967733

My dog is obsessed with eating acorns but I'm pretty sure she's allergic to them. :( When she's been eating them she ends up itchy and with ear infections. Sigh...

Awww... that's so cute! Actually, the melon rind is apparently super healthy as it's closest to the skin. Don't quote me, but hey, it can't hurt!

I'm so glad to hear your dog is doing well:)

She looks like she is having fun! My dog Sarah used to like eating avocados....except the seed! She's gone now and I really miss her.

My dog would probably eat anything. Such a cutie. That's amazing that she beat distemper - how wonderful!
