Who Needs Kids....



When you have the most adoreable dogs in the world??  Okay - so maybe I need kids - but that's not happening right now so I'm counting my blessings as they are.  And right now those blessings = Dixie & Bauer!

My dogs are piglets - seriously.  Dixie will eat anything and Bauer will do anything that Dixie does, which means he too will eat anything.  Last week I made corn on the cob for dinner.  As always, Dixie and Bauer watched Steven and I eat our meal with puppy dogs eyes and watering jowls. 

Midway through our meal Steven commented, "You know...I was watching this episode of 'America's Funniest Home Videos' and dogs can eat corn on the cob - they are actually pretty good at it."  Not to be outdone by some family on "America's Funniest Home Videos", Steven grabbed a piece of corn and put Dixie and Bauer to the test.  It looked a little something like this....

Sniffing it out - what is that??

Oh that's good stuff...

My little piglet

Yes - Dixie is eating the crumbs off the floor....


After a meal like that, I need a nap Mommy!


LOVE THEM!!!!

I had a pom that would eat an apple, but leave the core!

I hope the corn didn't upset the tummy's!

I know - aren't puppies the best!? The pics were so cute :-) Who knew dogs could eat CotC so daintily? I've said it before - enjoy every second of your child-free days! You won't have them back for decades once the kiddos start coming! Hope you have a delightful Monday Amber... Hugs, ~Kristin

Fur babies are great! They are less expensive, they can stay home alone, and they don't give you stretch marks :)

I had no idea dogs could eat corn on the cob! I can't wait to try it this week with Zoey!

LOL!!! Too funny! The more I read your blog, the more I believe that our husbands are long lost twins. I can't wait to tell mine about this so he can try it with our dog. Hahaha! :)
