I can help myself, Girlie!

Wroo, furends! Well, we missed posting on the weekend because The Girl went to an agility trial WITHOUT ME, cheating with all those other doggies! Then, we missed posting yesterday because The Girl was "tired". I have told her what I think of those excuses!

So, today I decided to write about the yummers new ingredient that I get at dinner time:

SARDINES!!!! I wuff them, they are sooooooooo good! Girlie tells me that it is a sign of how much she loves me that she gives me a sardine evfurry night, because just the smell of them makes her gag. I don't know what she's talking about, they smell delicious to me.

The other day, she came home with a bagfull of foodables. She put most of them away, after I stuck my head into the bag to check for contraband. (I know that many of my furends have similar responsibilities; it is a doggy's job to inspect all bags coming in to the house.) But she left a couple of cans of sardines in the bag, and left the bag where I could reach it.

After time had passed, and being an enterprising doggy, I took both of the cans out of the bag and unwrapped them. Then, because I never get enough food (The Girl keeps me on a starvation diet, and then has the nerve to tell me it's because I only have three leggies... can you imagine!), I thought I would just help myself to a sardine or two. I worked at it a bit, and then I put a tooth through the bottom of the sardine can! I was most impressed with my own strength and resourcefulness. I took a break, as it is quite a lot of work to get into a can without thumbs and one of those opener-thingys.

In the meantime, The Girl discovered all the work I had been doing. She didn't even tell me how clever a dog I was or anything! The sardine cans were taken away from me, and I didn't even get to have a sardine! All that work, and Girlie just THREW THE CAN AWAY!!!! I know, furends, you are as shocked as I was. She told me that she didn't know how long the can had been "punctured", and that to be safe, she would just throw it in the garbage. The sheer wastefulness is not lost upon you, my doggy and kitty furends, I know! Never mind that I had EARNED a sardine!

Needless to say, I was very irritated at The Girl. She didn't seem to notice. Now I'm back to just a sardine at dinner time (or even just PART of a sardine, because The Girl says they are really big and "Dannan, we have to watch your weight because of your leggy", which is just insulting, and probably against the law because it is DISCRIMINATION against a DISABLED doggy). I don't know why I continue to put up with That Girl.

Another thing that keeps me wondering is the quality of pictures lately. These are he kind of pictures she's been taking:

Even if you put all the pictures together, you STILL don't have a full, proper picture of my handsome self! I seriously need to start looking for a new person to be in charge of my foodables and that silver clicky-box thingy.

Hi Dannan!

I know what you look like from the handsome picture of you on your new header! You look great! I have to be on a diet because I gained weight over the winter. I don't like it at all, but I have to slim down some.

Maybe you should get one of those hollow legs and then you can eat as much as you want.

Sardines are most yummers. I hope you get at least a little bit.


Princess said...

Dannan, I think your girl does need to work on her silver box clicky thingy skilz, but maybe you could help by slowing down and standing still once in a while...just a thought. Maybe she'll be so excited she got a good pitcture that she'll give you more sardines!! Never had any, but you made them sound YUMMY!!

Fred said...

Dis-crimson-nation! You should definitely get more sardines...probably. ;) Good luck with getting better pictures.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

WOWZA! Sardines, huh? If our momma was going to give us those we'd have to paw-wrestle the cats for a taste!

The Thundering Herd said...

At least you get sardines. Another example of the lack of attention we get!

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Wrrrooo are so funny Dannan! Good job being an enterprising doggie....bad job getting caught!
You will have to adapt a fang just for opening sardines quickly and on the sly....
Your photos look like some of our photos *sigh* humans totally miss the point sometimes...not to mention the dog, BOL!
Have a grrrreat weekend buddy :D
Slobbers xx

Kess And Her Mama said...

Ooh...Sardines. I've never had a whole sardine but my humans do give me their left over bread crusts with traces of sardine. It's yummy. Hey, maybe the Girlie is venturing into jigsaw puzzles! Better luck next time - with the sardines and the clicky box!
