The Biggest Pickle I've Ever Seen!
A couple weekends ago we were dog sitting our friend's Lab, Buddy. Buddy is a good boy and loves to hang out wherever we are. We happened to be cleaning up the garden that day - pulling out the spent squash and cucumber plants and harvesting the soybeans. We realized there were a couple cucumbers on the vine that we had missed during our harvest and sat them to the side to take into the house when we were finished. About 10 minutes later we heard a loud crunching noise. We looked over and saw that Buddy had found the cucumbers and was munching away on one! He looked at me quite innocently and said, "Wow, that's the biggest pickle I've ever seen!" I never knew Labs could talk. I guess they are deeply inspired by big pickles.
We let Buddy finish the "pickle," because hey, we weren't going to eat the rest of it, and it was humorous to see a dog munching on a cucumber. He didn't even ask for a little bit of salt. What a good boy!
