White Dog came sniffing into the kitchen followed by The Other White Dog. "Is that chicken," she asked trying to peer into the oven window. Quinn hip bumped her so that he could get closer to the smell and suddenly there were menacing growls and circling Eskies threatening the calm sanctuary of the cocina. "Out!" I demanded, "or no one gets the bird!" White Dog started to sputter a complaint about it being her brother who started things..."Don't want to hear it, out, I said!" I repeated. The White Ones looked at Steve. "You heard her and I think she means the part about no chicken otherwise." Both dogs crossed the threshold into the living room, Quinn stopping to turn and sit with his paws just on the line. White Dog hopped on the chair right inside the room which gave her the better vantage point AND the opportunity to jump over TOWD should there be a horrific chicken spill that needed immediate remediation. Neither crossed the line but watched raptly and panted heavily as Steve plated the meal and prepared the usual dog meals of stewed chicken and vegetables with rice. He served the four leggeds first but both merely ate the extra bits of chicken Steve had added to their bowls and then headed to sit by our sides hoping for--and ok--receiving more of the roasted bird hot from the oven. After mooching many many samples, White Dog and The Other White Dog returned to their regularly scheduled meal! Spoiled dogs?

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hehehe....you are so cute! We do the opposite here. We scarf down our foods as fast as we can and then go beg at the table! =P


Jacqueline said...

Well, who could blame them for wanting your pawesome home cooked chicken dinner?...Personally, we don't believe being spoiled is a bad thing, it just means you are really loved!(especially since they are so well behaved!)...kisses sweet friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Ginger Jasper said...

I have to agree with Jaqueline. Spolied is nt a bad thing with so much 2unspoiling2 in the world. Carry on loving and spoiling.. Hugs GJ xx

Brian said...

I totally agree with GJ, spoiled=normal!!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Yep. Spoiled. Just as they should be.

We have to admit ... foodables are the very things that are tempting altercations among the five of us. Some of us (two-leggeds) understand that better than others, and accommodations are being made. We don't like all the accommodations though. We've been in the bedroom all day, while THOSE OTHER DOGS ignore their food which is left down ALL THE TIME! (Can you tell we're a bit cranky?)

Now. More importantly. We're back. Trying to catch up. Given that we want to read ALL of your posts that we've missed, we'll be reading for a while. Enjoying them, as always. You can imagine us under the ceiling fan. Inside. It is way too hot to be outside. And your vignettes and accounts will provide wonderful distraction.

Thank you.
We've missed you.

Jake and Fergi and Family xxxxoooo

Sounds familiar but the Momster has started making us wait for any food until after the humans are done. We LOVE chicken - any leftovers we can come grab?

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

So funny how they always have to be the closest one like we would ever forget to feed one of them. :)

The menu of chicken, rice, and vegetables sounds delicious. The good ole days of home-cooked meals are gone forever for us.

Hugs and yips,

Well it all sounds delicious to us - but the roasted chicken does seem extra special! But we are glad that they listened and didn't keep getting all chicken-crazy. We have had that at our house - chicken crazy doesn't usually end well!
