Just another day....

Thanks for all the advice on how to handle the ladies. I'm gonna try to be more attentive on my next date with the divine Ms. Sophie of Central Bark Park. Not to be confused with the divine Ms. Sophie of DWBs!

After the big date trip to the Dog Park, life kinda returned to the normal routine, except for one small thing, my lady COOKED. I mean, she actually went into the kitchen, chopped up fruits and veggies and made real food. I love it when she does that cause I get to hang out under her feet and wait for good stuff to fall 0n the floor. Once it hits the floor it's fair game for MEEEE!
Here I am chowing down on some yummy cantelope.

Now I'm chewing on some fabulous broccoli, crunch, crunch, crunch, I loves the raw broccoli, although I make really strange faces while eatting it. I think it's good for me and helps keep me from getting a broken butt, like poor old Tanner!
After all that cookin', it was time for my real dinner. Now, here's how I work this (and I KNOW I am not the only one to do this), I first move everything around in my bowl with my nose, I push it around, I sniff it, I even lick a little bit of it. After I have done that I gently, gently place a few bites in my mouth and then I....
Drop it on the floor next to the bowl! Come on guys, I know I'm not the only one to do this!

After I get about half on the floor, I eat what's left in the bowl. When the bowl is licked clean I then nibble up all the bites I dropped on the floor. My lady always asks if the ones I drop on the floor are my favorites. She asks "Are you saving the best for last?" But I'm not telling, there is a perfectly good reason for what I do, but no one needs to know but me. Sometimes I even leave a few bits on the floor for later!!!! But for some reason they usually get swept up before I can eat them, I've been told they might attract ants, whatever!

Yeah, my eatting habits might be strange, but really, I could care less.

We don't share the same eating habits Murphey! Both Mitch and I scarf up every little bit and don't leave a drop! I guess you could say we're major food hounds!

Love ya lots,

Hi Murphey. I do the same when my grandma is in the kitchen. I know something will drop from the counter.
Like Maggie, I go direct to the mass until the last piece of food. 30 seconds is my record.
I can ask my grandma to make one harness for you just let me know the measure of your neck and your chest.

hehehe, you are right. you are not the only one pushing your food out of the bowl! i used to be one too but not anymore. i get spank and scolded from mom coz i like to pick the food least to my liking and throw it out of the bowl. mom went crazy coz those are wet food (unlike kibbles, she could just pick it up and put it back to the bowl). LOL

wet wet licks

Hee hee Murph, I haven't tried that dining method. I usually keep my food in the bowl. But I respect your special tradition. I'm sure it makes your dining experience special!

Hey Murphey,
hehe..I'm a very fussy eater. Every morning, Mom has to handfeed me my breakfast (dry kibbles) and for dinner, she has to mix home-cooked food with kibbles to get me to eat. I'll usually pick out 3 kibbles from there (maximum)and leave them outside the bowl before going back to them after I finish the food in the bowl. Yeah! :)
