Another round of snow and Rufus is stuck in the house! I have a full day of work and I would love to start putting away the indoor Christmas decorations so I pulled out Rufus’ toy to use up some energy. When Rufus is being uncooperative it is usually because he is bored or scared. Grammie bought us this toy which you fill with treats and Rufus has to figure out how to turn the bones so that the drawers open. It uses brain power which can actually wear out a dog more than physical activity. He loves it!
As I was working I happened to look over and realized that we have taught Rufus how to open drawers! Oh dear! He has used what he was learned with this toy to open drawers throughout the house! I did not see that coming…
I have said it before…you should never breed a beagle with a large breed dog because when a “Rufus” is on a mission he will always win!
