meal time at pat's house....

 i'd rather do almost anything else than cook.  if it weren't for my husband who provides me with daily meals, my sustanance would be cereal & butterscoth krimpets.  don't get me wrong... i do absolutely appreciate a good meal but only when it's prepared by someone else!

i'm not sure how it happened but i have become my guys chef!  i certainly didn't volunteer & i would have flunked an audition.  lucy & spanky expect me to feed them every morning & every night.  they don't ask my husband...just me!  first thing every morning  i stumble down the stairs & before my eyes are all the way open or have a chance to hit the coffee machine button...they are jumping & barking all over me. 

now lucy is on a diet because she's a 30 pound lhasa who eats everything (even inedible items) and they have separate rooms, special foods & different dinnerware.  lucy's food is measured & goes in the white bowl.  spanky has to have his veggies stirred in the blue bowl or he'll just sit there & look at me.  they eat in 2 different rooms because lucy gobbles like a maniac while spanky relaxes & savors his morsels. lucy will go  beg from her brother when she's done (in one minute flat) so i play referee!

this morning, spanky was done in one minute flat whille lucy was still gobbling.  this was so unusual so i asked spanky if he ate everything so lucy would't get a second helping.  he didn't respond so i went & checked.  lo & behold... the white bowl was empty & lucy was grinning up to me from the blue bowl!  my husband & i started our day with the biggest laugh!!!! 


  1. Hysterical! I love it =) I have two adopted furries and I have to stand between them when they eat. In the past I had two hounds and I had to feed one inside and one outside to make sure they ate right =p Too funny! Only once did I have three pooches - that really creates some juggling! hehe!

  2. thanks for visiting kathleen.... when they say "dogs rule" i get it!
