Gretchen appeared at bursting point, a sausage about to spill its juices.  She hobbled into the kitchen tightly clutching a dog treat.  I figured it to be the last of the stash she and Maggie broke into.  I grabbed at it and tugged. We wrestled for it, but after all, she’s only 10 lbs so I won.  She’s a tough little cookie.  With Jack’s mother visiting we have opposite ends of the dog spectrum, two mini dachshunds and our blue heelers with two opposing views of food.


Born picky

Will always pass his lips – poop and yogurt

Never passes his lips – fruit, uncooked vegetables and natural dog treats

May pass lips upon sniff inspection – dog treats he doesn’t recognize


Born eating everything, spoiled into pickiness

Will always pass his lips – any dog treat and meat product

Never passes his lips – fruit and uncooked vegetables




Will always pass her lips – Any food product

Special delicacy – Live bees (we have no idea how she hasn’t been stung)





Will always pass her lips – any food product

Special credit – steals treats from JJ and Benny and stashes them




Do you have finicky pets?

      Thanks! Was your garbage diver picking out just certain things? Benny picks out undesirable bits from his dish and lays on the floor next to his bowl. I’m sure he’d do the same with the garbage.
