There has also been an advance in the chewing department. I gave her a pigs ear yesterday. Usually she ignores it for quite a while, and when I next notice, it is gone. This time she took the ear cheerily and began munching. She really got into it, slightly lifting one paw from time to time as if to pin down her prey. She seemed to be enjoying herself heartily. Today, when I gave her a lambs ear, she took it immediately, smiled at me, and began to chomp away.
Bella has figured out what to do with pigs' ears, and she doesn't mind chewing in front of me. You go, girl!
