A Canine George Washington Carver
This morning Liz and I watched our cute not-so-little puppy discover the wonder of peanuts, and the fella was like a canine George Washington Carver. At first he carefully picked up the nut, managing to neither swallow nor destroy the nut, while likely enjoying the yummy saltiness of the shell. After carrying it to closer to us, he began to analyze it through sniffing and further attempts to taste it. Then he looked at it some more and began to gently chew upon it until it opened. Now that it was opened up, he sniffed it some more and enjoyed the peanut inside. We were very impressed with our smart puppy, though he did prove a little less than selective in the end, as he eventually ate the shell as well.
