will work for food

Some of you were asking if I got a bite of the birthday cookie. The answer is NO, I did not.
I got no closer to the food than this. Nobody was willing to share, and it's not because there wasn't enough food. So......Fig, Tad and I came up with a plan.
We decided to go all out and work for food.
Fig went to work first, and it took a lot of concentration for her to lay still on her back in such a vulnerable position.
Tadpole went next, and he had a harder time.
PPP was number 3, and with great effort, I focused on relaxing in Hannah's arms.
All of this work, and none of us got a nibble of the birthday cookie and even worse, not a smidgen of Grammy's strawberry pie.

Next time we're going to steal for food.

You look pretty relaxed in the Boy's arms, Miss P.

I can't believe that after all that hard work you didn't get any food! Good thing our legislators are working on equal rights for dogs.

I think you guys did a WONDERFUL job!! I won't stay in that position for 5 seconds!!

That pie looks so good too!

Ruby Bleu said...

That is SO not fair!!! And Grammy's pie sure looks yummy too!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

All that work and no delicious pie? What's this world coming to. Stupid economy.

Yeah, I love the idea, go steal for food!
OMD, the strawberry pie triggers my hunger badly!
Love you

Hi, Petra!
Hmmm... yes, it is a better idea to steal food than work for it!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Petra!
I'm sorry you did all that work for nothing! Stealing food is definitely a better idea as long as you don't get caught! My owners better share their food with me this weekend cuz we're celebrating Tibby Day!

I do tricks for treats, but when it comes to strawberry pie you've got to take things into your own dewclaws.

Tadpole and I have the same shape - super skinny middle, and deep, narrow chest. Mom always says I'm not shaped like a cocker spaniel. Apparently I'm shaped like a Tadpole.
