It was a brisk 7 degrees last evening and we were anxious to get into the house for the night. When Dad brought us in, Mom noticed that Kiana's front legs were "pink"! She sent everyone to their crates or "rooms" so she could look her over good. She wiped Kiana's legs with her hand and discovered that they were wet and frozen...and still pink. She got a paper towel and rubbed her legs and some of the pink came off. Hmmmm....I could just hear the rocks tumbling around in her head. She looked all over her chest for other red stuff. Well, finally she remembered that Kiana likes to "lick" her front legs. It literally got brighter in our house when the light bulb in her head went off and she said...."Hey, let me see your tongue!"
Well, much to her surprise this is what Kiana's tongue looked like:
"We" know what happened outside and aren't telling but, Mom thinks that she figured it out. Yup, the old warm, wet tongue on the cold, frozen, metal post. Mom's going to make her watch "A Christmas Story" tonight so she can see what happens to bipeds when they try that.
Please, if you or any of your pack mates think that this would be silly, fun or entertaining remember....you could lose your licker.
Stay safe and remember.....
Keep it furry!
