That’s blind Taco, our newest arrival, and his buddy three-legged Tanner looking up in the middle of a joint chew-toy destruction contest.
It’s been fascinating to see how Taco, who lived his entire life chained up outside, has become an amazing little “house dog” who acts like he was actually someone’s beloved pet living the cushy indoor life. He has adapted so quickly to living inside — with the best of house manners — that we’ve been astonished. And even at his advanced age (14, we were told), he has now discovered the joys of chew toys.
After realizing I was taking photos and not handing out dog cookies, they went back to work:
Though each toy had squeakers in them, neither Taco nor Tanner is particularly interested in the sound effects; they just like quietly chewing and pulling the stuffing out.
