On Sunday, I noticed Tristan gnashing away at what I thought was a small stick. I decided that he perhaps didn't need a stomach full of wood chips, so I took it out of his mouth, only to discover that it was not any sort of part from a tree, but instead a dessicated portion of a well-dead garter snake! Eeeeeeyuw.... and might I add, “poor snake,” although I don't think Tristan was the murderer.
I gave it back to him and went off to wash my hands. I really have to learn not to grab things out of my dogs' mouths before figuring out beforehand what they are.
