So, most people who have ever met Abby, know the one true truth about her — her favorite 1st, 2nd and 3rd things in the world are food, food and more food. I have warned people that Abby can, will, and most definately get to food if you leave it within paw’s reach. She will get to it even if it’s just out of paw’s reach, but perhaps within standing on her hind legs or jumping reach.
So for Thanksgiving I made it a priority to tell everyone, little kids included:
- Do not feed Abby human food, its not good for her
- Do not place food close to the edge of the table or counter- place it as far away from the edge as possible.
to no avail…
Offense #1: “Someone” left a full plate of crab dip on a chair seat. Boy, oh boy did she go to town on that one. She loves the rich, creamy, crabby, cheesy stuff. Sadly, it doesn’t love her…and we smelt how it doesn’t love her the next day– all day long…
The most heinous of crimes: Ever see the commercial where a guy is entertaining and he sets a WHOLE ham out on the dining room table? Then see the host’s Jack Russell Terrier chowing down on said ham — cut to the host in the kitchen washing off the parts of the ham that had dog lips and slobber on it… You get the picture– now just replace “ham” with turkey and stuffing… 1/3 of the plate that was set at the edge of the table went M.I.A.
You could hear my scream of “Aaaaaaaaabbbbbbyyyyy! Nooooooooooooooooo!!” throughout the neighborhood.
What am I most thankful for? These people were my friends before the turkey swiping incident, and are still my friends, post-turkey swiping incident. I just don’t know if I can ever forgive the person who left the crab dip for her — that was a stinky Friday indoors!
