And tonight, I give you Barnie the fat head


It’s gotta be a test. A test to see just how much I really missed the dogs while I was in Montana. You know, that week when I shared a queen-sized bed with nothing but pillows. Nobody woke me up between 4:30 and 5 am insisting that if they didn’t go out RIGHT NOW, I’d be sorry. My meals were my meals, there weren’t any black noses nudging me and trying to sneak something off of my plate. And, I had two hands free at all times, I didn’t have two sets of fluffy ears vying for the most attention.

OK, I’m back to reality now. It was during the breakfast gig. The dreaded one before I had to return to work. I carefully set each bowl on top of the kennels before I start to feed everyone.

Barney has been loose in the house since the day he came here at the ripe old age of 12. It’s hard to believe he’s going to be 14 in December. He drives me crazy every meal time as he runs back and forth through the house barking, demanding his meal.

I should have known something was up when he was so quiet. That is, until the crash of a full bowl of kibble hit the floor. Hello! If I wasn’t awake before, I was awake then. Two cups of kibble can cover a lot of ground at 6 am.

Congrats Barney. You get the “Fathead of the day” award.

  1. oh dear, fat heads all over the place! The only animal in my house that has histronics at dinner time is Frou the Fattest Cat. She acts like she is starving and will actually steal dog kibble if I leave the bowls unattended for more than two seconds… not that she can eat it very effectively as it is far too big for her puny kitty mouth!

  2. I am impressed with his rambunctiousness at his age 🙂 The wife and furkids are staying with a friend for a couple days while we get new carpet/linoleum throughout the house. I still call last potty break before going to bed.
