Making up for the Writer's Strike

Let me set the scene for you...

*Fade In*

It's dinner time. Mama's busy in the kitchen making her yum-yums. Patches and I are sitting under the table, keeping out of her traffic path and patiently waiting for something tasty to drop onto the floor.

Mama calls us over "Patchy, Sparky - come here! You want some avocado?"

She uses a spoon to taste the avocado herself before letting us have a bite.

She scoops out a spoonful for Patches, then me. Repeat until one bite is left.

Without thinking, mama then eats the last bite off of the same spoon that Patches and I totally goobered all over! Mama stops. Thinks. Makes a terrible face and spits out the last bit of avocado into the sink.

*End Scene*

(Mama's note: A dog's tongue is not only his wash cloth but also his toilet paper. Blech!)

Our Mom loves it when she yawns & I kiss her right in her mouth!! Especially in the morning before she brushes her teeth & her breath smells delicious.

Whatever I can do to make her happy.

Mom always does that, too. She always remembers after she swallows though. Tell your Mom not to worry though. We watch Mysbusters on Discovery and they proved a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's mouth. Mom says it doesn't matter, it's still gross.

Ha ha ha! That's just too funny! But it's not quite as bad as the time I drank from an un-flushed toilet, and then went strait to my human dad and gave him some big kisses right in the mouth.

Have a good weekend now!

Avocado...that sounds yummy! My Mama and Daddy gets kisses from me too. Every once in a while I would sneak them each a frenchie kissy and their reaction is hilarious!

What's wrong with our smelly saliva? My momym can't stand sharing food or spoon too. She said our saliva & breath is disgusting! But my hooman M doesn't mind & we share spoon even after I slobbered on it. Kekeke! What Lady Kaos said, is right! Actually, our saliva is very cleansing & when we lick our hoomans's face clean, we're actually washing their face for them. Watched it on tv!

Love licks,

Aw, a little slobber never hurt anybody. I gotta get me some of that avocado. Sounds yummy.

Ha! I wish I could have seen your mom's face before she spit the food out!

I can't believe that you sit patiently UNDER the table while waiting for that yummy food. I stand on my back legs and wiggle and dance to get food. And I'm still ignored.
