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.)
