The Count Loves Licorice

After dinner this evening I went to my cupboard and pulled out a bag of licorice. I love licorice, turns my teeth black, tastes so yummy, and two pieces make a lovely after dinner dessert. Of course, The count came up after eating his dinner and sat in front of me with his "cute suit". Hubber said, "He won't eat licorice!" I must mention Hubber hates the stuff. Orion kept begging, so I looked in his empty bowl and said, "What a good boy! You ate all your dinner!" and I handed him a piece. He loved it (of course, I knew he would, since no one could eat licorice without him finding out and begging for some!). Hubber said the dog was out of his mind and wouldn't dare eat another piece. So I gave him one and sure enough, he snarfed it with glee and begged for another. Hubber is astonished, but I told hub it was good for digestion (is it? I have no clue, but it must be good for something...). I bet it makes your hair grow or something.

    I love black licorice too! But I don't know if my Newfs do. I don't want to share. However, I sort of hope that if they did like it or found some, it would not encourage hair growth! The healthy non-allergy boys have enoguh fur to shed buckets and still have full coats.
