I can be polite....

Even when food is involved.

Yes, it is true that I don't like to share my yummies and foodies. If it is in my possession, you better not come close to it, or I'll *ahem* .... eat you (unless you're hoomans I know of course, then you can do anything).

However, if the situation was flipped around where you were in possession of yummies and foodies, then I wouldn't eat you. I would actually be extra nice to you. I wouldn't even try to take your foodies from you because I'm respectful that way. In fact, I wouldn't even go near you if you were a stranger dog because I never know how you'd react with foodies around.

The video below demonstrates what I mean. STINKY is not a stranger dog since he has been landsharking me for the last 3.5 years. I know he won't get mad at me when I get near him, that is why I feel ok getting close to him. Still, I wasn't about to just go "take" his foodie away from him if you know what I mean.

Can't you see, there's a conspiracy at home to STARVE me - the poor me.

(mum: that's a chicken drumstick Jaffa was holding on to. It takes him FOREVER to eat his food, whereas Miss Piggy finishes hers in seconds. Ok, maybe one or two minutes.)

Ha ha, you're exactly like me. I give Monga so much grief when she picks up the treats I didn't want in the first place. I bark and bark and do all sorts in front of her. I finally win when pinkie appears and Monga just runs up to her, forgetting about the bone or whatever it was she had before me. then I dart in and it's mine!! Daft, she likes pinkies more than food. I now what makes you happier!

Jaffa sure is holding on tight to his foodables! He must be involved in the conspiracy! We seem to have a conspiracy of our own, right now. Penny is getting way more food than I am and her treats are bigger too! So not fair! (Penny needs to quit losing weight, but I need to lose a few more pounds)

We have our own way of sorting things out. If it's a toy - Just Harry always wins because he is much more thievering than I am.

When it comes to food -- if it's mine in my food bowl, he never goes near it OR ELSE.

And if it's a treat, it's always dispensed equally (our peeps know better than to cheat one of us(

Wirey woofs,

(Can you do something about those temps?????? We see sweaters are being laid our for future packing!!)

We were betting that Stinky would give you his drumstick, Sunshade! Guess not! Keep trying!

Love ya lots,

Oh Miss Sunshade...they only feed Stinky at your house? You poor Girl!!! Your barkin' didn't seem to convince him to part with his dead chicken....!!!

Um, Lacie's butt has grown to mammoth proportions!!! She can't even go through the doors without turning sideways!!

Do you have any ideas to make her shrink? Or does it just wear off?


Lacie sooooooooo deserves it!!!!!

Foxie kisses,

Handsome Scruffy

Hey Sunshade... maybe Jaffa need to have a word with Jack. He (Jack) is a pushover when it comes to me eating up his share of food! Hahaha

CONSPIRACY! Stinky is taking over and mom is letting him!


the many Bs said...

aren't little bruzzers a pain in the whoopdeedoo???? we have the same food stealing issues at our house. some of us eat fast and some of us eat slow and the fast eaters are always trying to get the food away from the slow eaters. maybe that's why some of us are skinny and some of us are .... well... ahem.... not skinny.


Lorenza said...

I guess you need a better plan!
Your techniques are not working!
But... you are very smart. I know you can find the goodie's container in the kitchen and then... Ooops... I hope your mom does not read this!
Kisses and hugs

Does this have any relationship as to why we're fed in separate rooms? And why we have to be barricaded IN THE BEDROOM (all day) while our gramma's pups' food is LEFT DOWN ON THE KITCHEN FLOOR?

We protest.
