Yesterday morning I woke early to feed and walk both dogs before work.  Although Matt and T were still home and sleeping in, I didn't want the poor girls to go hungry and wait to have to pee until everyone was awake (most probably many hours later).  So they enjoyed First Breakfast and a little stroll for business around 6:30 am.  Yes, I did say "First Breakfast"

I went off to work, comforted in the knowledge that all the fuzzy creatures were cared for and content, surely back to bed with Dad.  Work was uneventful, and I was on my way to an early afternoon appointment at which point I called to check in with home.  Matt asked me if I had fed the dogs and when I said that I had done so before I left, he laughed.  Why?  Because he and T had just fed them Second Breakfast.
"Did you walk the dogs before you left, too?"
"I sure did!"
He tells me that they seemed desperate to go out and pee, so they had also taken a second tour of the outside.

Apparently they saw the opportunity and took it!  We had to laugh.  For the girls, this was a sure sign of an upward trend.

"Maybe every time we wake up, they'll feed us!"

Now I know why they were so eager to nap with me later that afternoon.  In their wildest dreams, they could only imagine that following the nap, they'd be served First Supper...  


  1. They sure know how to train us, don't they? Great post!

  2. Such opportunists. :)

    I've given you an award if you would like to accept it! It's at

  3. We always try that 'you've forgotten to feed us' trick, but it doesn't work. We think you need several humans in the house.

    Is that a chicken neck, we see?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  4. Yes, a chicken neck. This was what baby Nyxie was weaned onto from her mom. This pic was taken on her 1st day home with us!

  5. That's priceless! Bella does the same thing... she did manage to trick me into giving her a second dinner once too.


The girls and I love to hear from you - please leave us a note!
