Orange You Liken’ It?

Whereas some puppies have to grow into the size of their paws,
Westie’s have to “grow into their ears”!

When our little Westie, Maggie, was in “Puppy Training” she had her crate in the kitchen and was sometimes gated in there. At some point she started teething on the bottom of my kitchen cabinets. I had read that dogs don’t like the smell of citrus. I took out a bottle of orange extract, used in baking, and dabbed some with a cotton ball on the cabinet bottoms. She took one sniff of it and sneezed! That was the end of that. Once in awhile I had to reapply it.

The funny thing now is she’ll sit up and beg for a piece of orange or a slice of a Clementine.
