Good to Know
You never know when you’ll need info from WDJ.
After sharing my life with an eccentric Border Collie (is that a redundant phrase?), I was prepared for odd behavior from an Australian Shepherd belonging to a friend I hadn’t seen for years. But as my friend and I chatted in her kitchen over coffee, catching up, I couldn’t help but notice her Aussie’s strange behavior in front of her food bowl. The dog stood frozen over her bowl, nose poised just above the kibble inside. Occasionally she shoved her muzzle into the food, stirring the kibble vigorously, before taking her vigilant stance just above the food again. She appeared to be scrutinizing the food carefully, before she’d take a single piece of kibble, chew it, and start the process again.
