Dogs have a habit of sometimes getting attached to stuff they put in their mouths. If they find a stick outside, they tend to like to walk around with it in their mouths all the time. Who knows why? Perhaps they like the taste of what they are carrying. Maybe it just gives them a sense of security. We all develop strange attachments to things – so why can’t dogs?
The fabulous dog in this video definitely has an odd attachment. We see the dog, a great white Pyrenees, sitting in a chair. He’s quite content. Why is he content? He’s got a baby’s pacifier in his mouth. (Hopefully, it was a spare one, and he didn’t take it from a baby’s mouth).
Mommy sees it and tries to take it away. He pushes her hand away with his paw. This goes on for a futile minute or so. Apparently, he got to keep the pacifier. There has been controversy over whether a pacifier is good for a child anyway –some think that prolonged use of it may make teeth grow awkwardly. That may be the case of a child drinks milk from a bottle for a long time too.
I don’t think many doggie parents have to take their dog to an orthodontist to get their teeth straightened out after using a pacifier too long though. Apparently, there ARE dog orthodontists out there, though. Either way, I don’t think the charmer in this video needs an orthodontist, but he sure is cute hanging on to that pacifier.
