Dolly and Jessica may look all innocent, especially Jessica with having only three legs (Losing a back leg last year in an accident), but these two rascals have just disgraced themselves.
Our window cleaner arrived here just now and I made him a customary cup of coffee and as it was one of our children's birthdays yesterday, he also got a chunk of birthday cake alongside his coffee. I stopped for a coffee as well and as it was so lovely, we sat out on the patio to have a chat. I noticed two of the dogs missing, but I thought that they had gone in the back house to lie down.
When we had finished the coffee and having a chat, I was just going back in the house with the cups and plate to notice Dolly eating something out of a serviette. The window cleaner laughed and had recognised that she was eating part of his gingerbread man that had been on the dashboard of his van. He told me it was stale and from the previous day, so not a problem.
He had left the back doors open of his van and when we got to his van, we found Jessica on the front seat and the bag that had, had his sandwich in for the day, only a couple bits of tomato were left. Luckily our window cleaner is a dog lover, having two Lurchers and just saw the funny side of it, especially the fact that Jessica had left him the bits of tomato. I did offer to make him another sandwich or he could have a sausage roll from our fridge, but he said, "Not to worry about it."
Years ago I had our dogs eat the best part of some builders pack lunches that were doing some work for us. Thankfully they all seemed pretty okay about it, even when instead of getting to eat their healthy lettuce filled sandwichs, I could only replace it for each of them with a freshly made bacon butty.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
