Adventures of Chaoui – Coon chow

What does a healthy toddler coon eat–besides Oreos? Well, Baby begrudgingly shares her dogfood with Chaoui. The funny thing is, Chaoui must have a bowl of water to wet the food in. We’d always heard that coons “wash” their food before they eat it.

It’s really more like she “soaks” it to make it easier to chew and swallow. And she’s just as messy as a toddler in a high chair.

Now, she has graduated to using the dog’s bowls and not her own. Do they fight over the food? No, because Chaoui is clearly the boss!

By now, she really thinks she is an equal with our family dog, Baby.
