When my female Border Collie goes into heat, my male Border Collie refuses to eat. I liken this to the feeling that parents get when their children won't eat...it's like, "I know you are hungry, and I'd like to keep you alive, so please effing eat." Well, I have come up with a great way around this...I bring in my other male dog and I have him try to beg food off the my Border Collie. It works every time.
Since Oscar, my dachshund, is such a chow hound, he doesn't mind. Long story short, the other night we were at this little roundabout food game for a good 35 minutes. Somewhere along the way, call me crazy, I decided to record the ridiculousness. Then I made a movie. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
