Bobbing for Apples - with action video


The other day, my pals, Molly and Mitch, did a post about bobbing for apples. Now Momma's brain started working overtime when she saw that.

"Oh Dexter! You could bob for apples too! It might provide some mental stimulation!"

Well, hardly. You see, sticking my entire labrahead into a bucket of water when there is food involved requires no thought whatsoever.



While some doggies might cause no end of amusement for their humans by demonstrating fastidiousness about getting their face wet, yours truly made short work of the apples and in fact, as demonstrated in this action video, they were gone in about 30 seconds.




Dexter done!

P.S. Did your human ever forget that you had blueberries for breakfast and then go all freak-a-zoid mental fits when you do festive blue party poop?

  1. Dude! Awesome video! Do you have an apple preference? We will only eat Granny Smith apples and mom thinks that is very weird... and yes we've been down the party poop road as well.

  5. Blue party poop....bwahaahaa! We've never had blueberries for breakfast...or any other time come to think of it.

    Great bobbing technique. Bella is our only bobber. Actually, she's the only swimmer in our pack. So well done, friend. You made short work of that apple.

  8. Dexter you are quite good at that. I bet it is good, like getting a treat and a drink of water at the same time.

  11. Howdy Dex, good bobbing mate. Don't know if we would be brave enough ourselves, hehe. Hey once our angel sissy Kara ate a huge blob of blue playdough. She pooped blue for three days. Mum said it made it easy to find! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  12. My goodness, I agree with Lily. Very very talented. As for blue poop, I think I might freak out too.

  13. Dude! You just snatched those apples outta that water. I sometimes bob for my kibble when I push it into my water bowl. I am VERY impressed with your technique.

  15. We did bobbing yesterday. We had an awful lot of competition though. It must be nice to get all the pieces for yourself.

  16. Dexter, sometimes us super-bright pups have to remember that not everyone in the world is as talented as our good selves.

  19. As a labradude, we would imagine you have no issues getting your head wet! BTW, we aren't fans of blueberries, so no party poop for us, but our Mom would definitely forget something like that and then freak out later....

  21. LOL - I love this! Uh oh - now I have an idea to have Blueberry bob for some blueberries...

    ReplyDelete
  22. And you ate them! Of course, is there anything a Labradude won't eat? Our old yellow lab, Jake ate a plastic plate I had given him some scraps on, so the answer is no, there isn't much you guys won't eat. Great trick Dexter, now when's the video of Momma doing the bobbing? Ann TBL

  23. Little D - Mom did that with me too. She put chicken in the bottom of my water to get me to drink. Since she discovered that I like those hard water things, she now puts them in my water bowl and laughs as I put my whole nose in to get them. Hooman, so easily entertained!
    THE COUNT!

  24. I see two problems with this: 1. Apples 2. Getting wet. I do not like either of these things. Now, if there was a bobbing for cheese in gravy contest, I would totally win that. But you did good and I'm glad you didn't melt into the water.

  26. Oh, my goodness! I haven't been able to stop laughing...festive poop and bobbing for apples! LOL

  27. I've just never contemplated the possibility of festive blue party poop. You do have a way with words.

  28. You did a great job Dexter! I want to try this as I love apples, Fugis being my preferred variety. If Ambrose tries it he will just overturn the bowl and forget about the bobbing part.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose
