Out of the Blue

It didn't happen over the weekend as planned, but I did finally get to giving Hudson the wonder dog her belated birthday dinner last night. This was originally supposed to be the sum total of her present, but now I'm feeling like I still owe her something to mark the occasion. It simply defies belief how quickly that dog was able to scarf down the steak... that made it obvious that she liked it, but it's hard to imagine she enjoyed it that much, considering she didn't even chew it (maybe I shouldn't have sliced it up for her, but I fear had I not, she would have tried to swallow it whole anyway). Since the steak I got her hadn't been frozen, I decided to make a small concession towards cooking on this (she normally eats her meat raw), so I gave it a quick searing in the frying pan, but even at barely one minute on the stove, this steak still spent considerably more time being cooked than it did being eaten. I have to check to see if there's anything in the rules barring dogs from entering the hotdog eating contest at Coney Island next year.

Hey, us cat owners are faced with the complete opposite problem. You buy them a special treat and put it in their bowl and they promptly look up at you haughtily as if to say 'And this rubbish is what precisely?' before walking off, tail high in the air.

We have a tinned catfood rotation system in our street of owners passing on food their moggy stops eating but another likes. The cats have agreed between themselves I think that the system has to be changed quite regularly however, so everyone gets something new and nice quite often. They have us well trained.

If you find yourself indignantly saying "Gonna discount me from the 'study', eh, cuz I'm brown-eyed? Hah, I'll drink your study subjects under the table!" before reading the link and while already thinking of beer... You may have a problem.

Is no one awake this morning?
