We All Scream

This summer, we introduced Bart to ice cream. It's a pleasure Mabel Lou knows too well.

But it's been fun watching Bart figure it out and... seeing the effect that has on Mabel Lou! We are more often in the back of my jeep ...which makes picture taking hard. So this session was in the BFF's back yard.

At first Bart tried to chew his way from the outside in! Oh, the faces he would make when he bit into paper and wax.  By round two, he chewed the paper less but...he still does it a little.


We get them a child's scoop of vanilla at Baskin Robbins. Check out that tongue:

The first time we all had ice cream in the car, Mabel just did her thing. She's been doing this for years! But the second time, she was suddenly aware of Bart in the car. She panicked and picked up the whole scoop in her mouth...where it promptly got stuck! Can you say "Doggie Brain freeze?"

She doesn't seem to worry so much if she has a bit more space. In the yard, she just licked her bowl dry. Then we made her leave the area so Bart could eat in peace. Then both of them came around wanting OUR ice cream.

It's been a fun adventure watching Bart learn about the finer things in a dog's life.

Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for ice cream here. But we hardly ever get a whole cup, just a dab dropped on the floor as Dad gets his bowlful. Yummers, delish.

Oh dear, brain freeze! That must be uncomfortable.
