Dakota is SO sweet! ♥
As always, I'm leery about the potential for Rodents in these photos, so I glance through them extremely fast and if none are spotted, I go back and have a better look.
Pathetic, I know.
I will be sure to put future warnings just for you then.

It is indeed fascinating, especially given that they can detach their jaws, even in the midsection. They often "yawn" after eating to get their jaws back into place. They also breath out of the slit their tongue comes out of so that they can breath despite having a large meal in their mouth. Crazy how animals adapt.
Ryuk's pretty relaxed and easy going so I was pretty trusting in him that he wouldn't dart. Although he did try to push his head into the grass, he didn't try to take off.
And Alice would most definitely eat him, Dakota's the only one who's really good about it. (It's funny, he has the highest prey drive of all the dogs, he's very good at differentiating pet from wild prey.)
