Catnip... is just for cats?

My pal Mooch loves catnip.  As you can see he really enjoys the feel and taste of catnip.  Mooch gets very excited and runs around very fast and then lays down and rolls on the grass.  After a year of being eaten, sat on and rubbed the plant is now a nub or small mound.  The nub turns greens when leaves begin to grow and fill in.

I have a friend named Black Beard that stops by to hang out after he eats at Kitty Cafe.  Kitty Cafe is just around the corner from my house.  Black Beard and Mooch say the food is good and the chef is very nice.  It is only for cats so I will not be visiting this establishment anytime soon.  My friend Black Beard came by the victory garden for a quick visit today.  He found a good spot, on top of the cat nip nub, and chilled.

I ran back into the house and then ran out to the garden and worked my way through the corn and beans.  As I turned the corner, at Corn & Asparagus, I found Black Beard going crazy!

Now I am not sure if I am able to react to catnip the same way that Mooch and Black Beard do.  My close buddy Nibbs says that catnip is good to consume in the privacy of your own home.  Just like any drug you should know what you are eating and how it will effect you.  I have sniffed and chewed on a leaf or two left behind by Mooch and Nibbs.  I did not feel any different and did not get really hyper.  For me catnip is for the cats.  Dogs have their sticks and bones to keep them occupied.  Now off to find that stick!  Keep wandering...

Happy 4th of July!

4th of July 2011

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!  This is a day for the dogs.   Not every dog likes fireworks but I know every dog loves food.  I am not one to be picky either.  I love all of the items that go into the barbeque and come out smelling great.  If I am good and do not beg too much I am rewarded with a treat.  I have a special cookie waiting for me today.  Nom nom!  Keep wandering.
