Backyard Watermelon

My container in front with the "good" pieces and Charlie's in back with the scraps.

Summertime is the BEST time to feed your dog watermelon! Not only is it in season, but you can feed it to them outside and contain the mess to the backyard.

The watermelon I got from the store yesterday turned out to be a tad "over-ripe" giving it that grainy texture that is not very appealing to me. The best thing to do in these situations is to cut off the best parts into a container for me and the rest goes into the doggie container!

Using a piece of rind as a dish, I transported some of Charlie's watermelon to the backyard and let her enjoy a noontime snack in the sun.

After eating up all the pre-cut pieces, she got to work nibbling the remaining watermelon off the rind. This kept her occupied for over half an hour and she got a healthy and fun snack too!
