Something to Be Thankful For

Boy, the grub sure has improved around here!

For the longest time, all the humans ever gave me was crunchy dog kibble. Well, that plus a few scraps of human food at dinner time.

But then my teethies started getting old and sensitive, and I didn’t like to crunch it up. Then they didn’t give me hard kibble any more, and I started getting moist food from a can. Then, as I got pickier, they started giving me even moister, tastier food from a plastic tray.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, all that strange stuff happened that I wrote about in my last story. After I got back from That Place for the third time, suddenly they started feeding me all kinds of good stuff. All human food, all the time!

Think about it! It’s like after 16 years, I finally graduated to the grownups!

Here’s what I get sometimes:



Some of you might remember I had a bad experience with this when I was a puppy, but when given in small-dog amounts it’s goooood.

Here’s what I get other times:



Can you believe it? They save the very best part of the chickum just for me.

There’s just one thing that is a little bit strange. When No. 2 gives me the chickum liver, first he takes a little white crunchy thing and then he kind of mooshes the liver around it. Most of the time I don’t even notice the little white crunchy thing, because I gulp that ball of mooshed-up liver down so fast. But sometimes I detect it and I spit it out. That makes No. 2 all upset. “Willie! You have to eat it!” he says.

Eventually when he’s satisfied that I’ve swallowed the little white crunchy thing, then I get a few bites of pure unadulterated liver, and that is much much better. Never mess with a classic, I always say.

So tell me, what are you thankful for today?

Turkey coma.

Hope you are feeling OK now. Molly says she has been finding strange white bits in her food since she had a funny tummy. She says when she was a puppy growing her new teeth it was so painful she refused to eat until finally she was given klingon food.
You take extra care my friend.

It is appropriate time to make a few plans
for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to counsel you some interesting things or suggestions.
Perhaps you can write next articles relating to this article.
I want to read more issues about it!

Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know so much approximately this,
such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
I feel that you can do with a few % to force the message house a little
bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog. An excellent read.
I’ll definitely be back.

Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your web site in web explorer, may check this?
IE still is the market chief and a good part of other people will leave out your fantastic writing due to this problem.
