Today my dog viciously assaulted an unarmed carrot. We had read that Yorkies like carrots as treats, so I cut off a small piece of one and gave it to her to eat. She licked it a few times, shook her head as if the smell irritated her, and then began her assault. With an impressive array of combat moves, she snapped at it, held it down, and slapped it across the room. The fight lasted about 5 minutes, and when our dog was convinced the carrot no longer posed a threat, she let it go. I'm pretty sure this carrot won't bother her again.
