Our male tri has the most gentle and articulate lips/mouth.
he has this silly trick he learned that if he gets something he's not supposed to have, we give him a treat to get him to leave it. It's usually tiny peices of foil wrappers, staples or cellephane.
Last night he comes up to me chewing on something in his mouth. He brings it to his front lips showing me he has something he's not supposed to have. I can barely see what he has, but it was a tiny piece of clear celephane candy wrapper about 1/4" round. I tell him to give it to me, I hold out my hand and gently drops the tiny object in my hand. I give him a treat. We call them his bargaining chips.
the next night he comes up to me with a tiny spec of hair/lint. His mouth that can be so feroucious can also be so articulate and gentle.
He's just so cute, I don't have the heart to laugh at him.
The problem is when he finds a wire tie, staple, screw that would really be bad for him.
