No Accounting for Taste

Nom nom nom
On Saturday morning, I confirmed that Seven does indeed have a strange palate.  First, she turns her nose up at rabbit as if I was serving her poison, but then shows a liking for something so bizarre.
I had an unpackaged roll of PetFlex "No Chew" Bandage sitting in my First-Aid Kit.  Generally, Seven has not been an inappropriate chewer around the house, but of all things to seek and destroy she chose a bandage roll described as "bitter tasting to discourage your dog from biting and chewing the bandage".  I can attest that it does indeed taste nasty as I could not resist touching my tongue to it the first time I used it.  It worked for me and I did not go back for seconds.  It does not seem to be working as well with Seven...
 OMG this is so good! And you tried to kill me with rabbit!
By the time I found Seven, she was well on her way to making a meal of it.  Funny greyhound!  At least I have learned that in the future, if Seven needs a bandage, I need to skip the bad tasting, "No Chew" bandage and opt to rub raw rabbit on the outside of the wrap. I guarantee she would not touch it then. Ha!

Lol, Seven is such a character. She keeps coming up with something new all the time. Good blog fodder;)

Just as well you've got the rabbit as a back up to keep her from chewing any necessary bandaging.

I wonder what she'll get up to next?

she is a character!!! is her tongue blue or something? She definitely has a defective one!

I wonder if the texture of chewing on something so spongy was better than the bad taste?

What a goofy girl! :-)

That's too funny! I have the same wrap for Ferguson and didn't realize that it was no chew until after a few days of having it on him, but unlike Seven, he seems content to leave it be!

Hopefully she doesn't get any boo boos that will need the wrap...otherwise you'd best blend up some rabbit and spray it on!

Whoa, that's crazy! I thought it was bizarre enough that she would want to chew on the package of vet wrap, but then to hear that it has the bitter taste to it? What a character indeed :-)

I hated bitter tastes as a kid. Now I have seek it out as part of a balanced flavor diet. Sounds like Seven's taste buds are maturing.

At least it was just vet wrap. Gracie just ate 2 race muzzles at $20 each today. She also has eaten socks [normally just one of the pair], one pair of my shoes and started nibbling on slippers. She has issues!

Sooo funny. But then, the ONE excellent grain free food Creel does NOT like is the rabbit. Gets gas from the rabbit for goodness sake.
