What it takes to get a meal...


Around here, getting a meal is a real job. I can't just open the bisquit tin anymore and dig in like I used to because the tin is nearly empty and the bisquits are in a bag in the tin! (What is THAT about??) So, now, when we are hungry, we have to do a lot more work. Basically, it starts out with me getting on Mom's lap and making goo-goo eyes at her.

Then Tiny will come along and make one of her little chirping sounds.

Then I will jump off of Mom's lap in a 'come-follow-me' way to get Mom to follow Tiny and me.
Then Tiny and I go into the kitchen where I hop up on the chair by the window and start my serious food calls.

For the purpose of this photo demonstration, Mom brought out a package of Whiskas (we don't usually get Whiskas, but I DO know what the package looks like so I get all excited when I see it) and I just couldn't help myself..I had to reach out and grab at it. The last stage, of course, comes right after...food in the bowl, but you all know what that looks like!!

Bon Appetit!

I think you have your bean well trained!!

We think it is absolutely not fair that you should have to jump through so many hoops. You need to train your servant to be standing at attention, tea towel over one arm and food in the other hand, ready when you need it!
