You need a dog to open a coconut!!



Iggy is one of my daughter's dogs. He is fond of cracking nuts, and especially coconuts. He is an old dog of 13 years , but is still just as excited by coconuts as he used to be as a pup.He is also excited if he sees a big tree branch, but also when he sees a snake. For the rest: he sleeps a lot after all this excitement.

This is my post for Camera Critters!

Aww, he looks like a nice old dog. So coconuts excite him? How funny.

Is he able to crack the coconuts open? Trying to crack nuts does sound funny.

Reader Wil said...

Well he tries to do it and he gets pretty far. My daughter has to do the other half of the job, she uses an axe. Most of the time however she doesn't bother, there are so many coconuts.

He certainly is a unique dog. Did your daughter train him a wee bit or is this something he's done from birth?

Do you hand out extra rations for people, like me, who suffer to scroll all the way down here to leave a comment?

Just kidding.
