OMD I'm the new Blogville City Manager! To have such an impawtent spot in the cabinet, I suppose I'm somewhat skilled in certain fields of profession. One important skill to have is improvisation. A dog should always be equipped to improvise in certain situations.

I found a spectacular way to improvise just recently. All dog moms seem to be greedy with the treats because "you'll get fat" or "you already had breakfast" among reasons. Instead of having my mom give me treats during our photo session sparingly, I decided she wouldn't have to do the work of putting her hand in the back AND feeding them to me AND telling me that I won't be getting too many treats. The easy solution was grabbing the bag of delicious treats and scampering off with it.

Now that's what I call improvisation...easier for me and the human!

  4. Joey dog would quote the Yum Yum Coalition Guide to Doggie Employment number one rule: all photo sessions are to be paid for with two yum yum doggie treats. No exceptions.

  5. Good job Christmas, getting those treats. Bet that was great fun.

  6. Sometimes you have to take these things into your own paws!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    Mom's Vet recommended giving frozen veggie treats in place of other treats if I gained a bit of weight (which, ahem, being a food hound, I am prone to do). I LOVE Brussels sprouts and peas and they are safe for doggies!
