Despite what my Mom may think, I am actually a canine connoisseur. Although my tastes often run a bit different from that of my family pack, I suspect they confuse my politeness in consuming what they offer with preference. I would hate to hurt anyone's feelings by turning my nose up at the food and treats they offer. My motto: If it's there, eat it.
Of course, this philosophy sometimes gets me into a bit of trouble occasionally. Like that time Dad didn't want to eat the sandwich he'd made and abandoned it on the kitchen table. Nothing sadder than a lonely sandwich. What's a thoughtful fellow to do? Dad was pretty excited about me helping clear the table for him. Sometimes I just can't figure that guy out.
Even though my family pack tends to be a bit confused at times, other times they get it just right. Like the other day, when my friend with the big truck dropped off a package sent straight from doggy heaven. I could smell that goodness right through the door! That guy is one of my favorite people and for the life of me, I can't figure out why Mom and Dad won't let me tell him thank you.
Someone certainly deserved a thank you for the tasty goodies that were inside the package! I smelled something tasty and familiar and another scent that nearly caused me to loose more than a bit of drool, my decorum!
Mom and Dad thinks get goofy expressions on their faces when my friend drops off a package for me. They usually open the box and let me explore it. This is fun for them, so I humor them for awhile. I think they forget that most of the good stuff in the boxes is trapped inside that strange, un-tasty material. Mind you, if it smells good, I'll eat it even it doesn't taste so great. Usually, however, I have to ask Mom and Dad to help me get at the good stuff inside. They can be a little slow on the uptake.
For example, although I appreciate that they get excited about these wonderful smelling goodies, too, they tend to get a bit distracted from the big picture. That would be me, yours truly, waiting as patiently as I can to actually try one of the tempting goodies! Or a bag. A whole bag would be okay with me!
Mom and Dad keep talking; I keep drooling. They talk about organic chicken and pheasant. Pheasant! So that's what the new smell is! I wonder if it is like the "duck". I simply adore "duck"! They talk about "all natural" and "fruits and vegetables". Mom and Dad just love to talk. I've tried their food and it's pretty darn good and I can't for the life of me figure out why they talk more than they eat. I still have hope. Maybe they'll figure life out one of these days.
Mom says something about "No preservatives, harmful additives, wheat, corn, soy, BHA, BHT, or Ethoxyquin". Not to be outdone, Dad says something about, "Great for dogs with allergies, diabetes, or sensitive stomachs" Dog! That's me! Just when I think I can't take anymore talking and not tasting, Mom gives me a try of the tasty stuffed called, "organic pheasant". Oh, dog biscuits! While pheasant is not the same taste as duck, it is very, very good.
For reasons I cannot even begin to fathom, they didn't eat the chicken treats. Already a fan of chicken, I was more than happy to help clean the table again, especially since Mom put the rest of the treats up in the high cupboard in the food room. Silly, Mom. Doesn't she know I can't possibly get into that cupboard by myself?
