I was scooping myself a bowl of baby carrots – I love baby carrots – and Minnie showed strong interest. I’ve heard of dogs eating carrots so I said sure why not and gave her one.

She trotted off with it happily.

But a few seconds later she dropped it, when I called her to come outside with me. She’s not allowed to bring her indoor toys outdoors, and I think she thinks the carrot is a toy.
