For the day that is in it

Our Penny does a very strange thing with her food.

I have mentioned before how she is the laziest tyke in the world and insists on lying down to eat, but she has another little quirk that I have noticed for the last while.

I feed her a lot of dry food.  The stuff comes in dirty great sacks and stinks something rotten, but she loves it.  She lies in between her food dish and her water dish so she can drink with her meal without even getting up.

Now the food I give her comes in loads of little shapes and colours.  Some are round and some are square.  Some are shaped like little bones and some are shaped like little hearts.  I presume the shapes are supposed to represent what part of the dog they are good for, but that's neither here nor there.

Penny likes the food.  She tends to eat a bit and then leave some for later so there is no feeding time as such – just a constant topping up process.

I have noticed though that each time I go to top up he bowl there is always just one piece spilled on the floor.  And it's always a heart.

I thought at first she didn't like the taste of the heart pieces but she always eats the rest, and just leaves one on the floor.

Once she left two hearts, but I think that may have been a mistake.  She hasn't done it since.

    • Except that she has been doing it nearly every day for a few weeks now.

      Maybe it's a Valentine's message?  Maybe she's worried about my health?  Maybe she's just sick of that food and is asking me to have a heart?

      • Maybe she was a human in an earlier incarnation, has realised this and is simply messing with your head?
        I'm not a dog although I freely admit I could have been one in an another incarnation but here's a web page that may mess with your head.

        Is t'wood mountain on the manor still growing courtesy of this CO2 increase the meejah is blabbling on about?

        • Two of my biggest birch trees were brought down by the storms on top of the wood heap.  Now I can't see the wood for the trees.  [*cough*]

          I wouldn't be too sure that "the authorities" hate active dissent – it gives them a great excuse to introduce all sorts of extra laws, surveillance and the like?

          • I call you messiah for having the foresight to place the wood heap so close to the trees most likely to fall in a storm.
            Agreed on the organised dissent on show around the globe. Authority loves mass dissent for the very reasons you highlight but individual dissent amongst the mass would in my humble be a very effective method of collapsing the house of cards.

  1. Take it for what it is. Be glad she loves you well enough to show you. I'm sure you wouldn't want a dog that despised you as they tend to throw up in your left slipper.
