Adventures in Momma Training

Do you folks have a hard time training your pawrents? Dawg, let me tell you how stubborn my momma has been lately! You know how last week she posted on my behalf about me needing POTP because I wasn't feeling well and not eating? She dragged me to the dogtor, she gave me pills, she worried and coaxed and fretted. All instead of just LISTENING to me!

I don't know what finally pushed the button for her, but she FINALLY said, "I wonder if he just doesn't like his food?" She picked up some super-duper yummy canned food to add to that BORING plain kibble I've been eating -- and I gobbled it all down!! I haven't been fussy a bit as long as she gives me some yummy in my bowl.

Sheesh, Momma. About time. You're a little slow, aren't you?

Good help is SO hard to find!


  1. Well... bipeds. They aren't as smart as we are, but you have to love them!
    We're so glad you're eating now that your momma is giving you the right food!

  2. I KNOWWWWWWW....finally our mom adds cooked chicken gizzards and livers to our dry kibble and we gobble it took her a long time to figure it out. We hope you are feeling better. stella rose

  4. I keep trying to train my momma to feed me every 30 minutes (at least). No such luck.

  5. those moms!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & mabel

  6. Mommy's... you are right... they must teach humans the wrong things in school... why don't they teach them anything important in school like how to buy yummy food fur pets instead of boring bland stuff. I think the squirrels are behind the board of education somehow. Those squirrels just have it in fur us dogs!

    1. OMD! Of course, it all makes sense now! Tree rat conspiracy!!

  7. It takes lots of patience

  8. Sometimes something new is good. Maybe your Mom has a bad bag of kibble? Sometimes too much heat can make it taste yucky. We are so glad you are just A-OK!!!

  9. LOL! Sometimes we pet parents just over think it don't we:)

  10. OMD Lassie and Benji are BRILLIANT.... THAT simply MUST be the answer... Squirrels Run the Schools... and THAT is where all the trouble starts.. If the Teachers were ALLOWED to teach the Stuffs they SHOULD teach... our lives would be Heavenly. Glad that your momma's Light Bulb got turned on...and you got some GOOD STUFFS to eat.

  11. Sometimes I get parmesan cheese in my kibbles!! YUMMMMM!!


  12. Now...that we get along..I dont think that they are ever totally trainable ya know?
    I like that extra in my food too. Mine gives me a few sprinkles of bacon bits and a few pinches of for me.
    We just gotta be patient with them!!
