Bone of contention

Smooch: This is the best bone ever!
Me: Well, technically, it's not a bone. It's a piece of rawhide.
Smooch: Po-tay-to, po-tah-to. Call it what you will. I'm in heaven.


Me: Hon', you've chewed on it long enough for one night. We should save some for tomorrow.


Smooch: You mean I have to put it away now?
Me: Sad but true.


Smooch: Good night, bone. Until we meet again...

  1. Smooch is such a good girl to give up her bone like that. There would be a lot of moaning/groaning from Wally if he was asked to do the same thing!

    Smooch, I feel your pain. After making a batch of chocolate chip cookies, only to be able to eat JUST one (or maybe two..three), anyway I feel for you.

    The weather seems nice at your place. Wish I was there enjoying some of that beautiful sun.
    Best always, Sandra

  12. Hey, is that the chew that Roxy sent? This one actually looks a bit bigger, so I'm thinking no - but isn't it funny how much dogs love these? And what a good girl Smooch is for listening to the voice of reason. It's not at all like this here when it's time for the chew to be put away. :-)

  13. I love a dog who is well mannered enough to give up a treat. She may not realize it at the moment but she'll sure be glad to see that bone again on another day.

  14. Danni, as a matter of fact that is the chewie that Roxy gave to Smooch. Another reason why we're rationing it - so it reminds us of your kindness that much longer.

  16. Wow-Smooch is very disciplined to just chew a little every night...not! I'll bet if she had her way she'd finish it all in one go just :) It's okay Smooch...I would eat an entire batch of cookies if someone gave them to me!
