White Dog sniffed and walked a way. Quinn wouldn't even come over. Puff moved next to Steve and Nuka politely took a sample and immediately dropped it on the floor. Only YoYoMa came and sat close, wagging his tail in interest and devouring every floret of broccoli that I held out to him. The others looked at him in shock...amazement ...disappointment as he mowed through my veggies until I begged for a bite; then he happily nibbled on bits of tomato from my sandwich.

He was oblivious to the rest of the WDA's disdain and pushed his way into position alongside of them when it came time to share bits of grilled turkey burger. He even ignored White Dog's sarcastic comment, "You probably would prefer a TOFU patty, you VEG-skie!"

When he actually performed a down-stay for a chunk of cantaloupe, the others huddled to consider an intervention. He earned a few more pieces then strolled past his disapproving siblings. As YoYoMa passed them and settled for a post dinner nap, he looked in their direction and pointedly let out a burp before closing his eyes.

Its a little hard for me to get my nose past the broccoli. But I do love green beans and will eat lots of them! My Mom says she wishes I would eat what YoYo Ma does, but I don't think it will happen.

Too funny, we like some veggies, but we pass on broccoli. The Momster loves her broccoli hot with butter.

I have been known to eat a little broccoli in my day, too! Not bad, not bad at all!

Your pal, Pip

"The others actually considered an intervention when he accepted a cantaloupe." Too funny!! What a great line.

The Back Dogs will not eat any fruit or veggies, the Front Dogs I could make a mixed salad every day. :)

BTW...I love the way you script your stories. They are fun and creative and I enjoy reading them. Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your gift of writing. :)

Funny what some will eat and some will not eat. Sagira refuses to eat pickles.

Anything turkey sounds awesome! I'll pass on the broccoli though.
