This morning Tilly and me were the last two at the breakfast table. Often we are the last two at the breakfast table, my excuse is I'm Mum and spend the morning chasing our six children up to get ready for school and thus are the last to sit and have breakfast. Tilly's reason she is most often sat with me eating her breakfast, is she is five years old and easily distracted, often as you can see the distraction can be of the canine kind.
Henry loves lying across chairs like this and if the chair is empty he often does this and rests his snout on the edge of the table. He often watches me like this as I do cooking in the kitchen, he is wonderful company, as he attentively watches your every move, I know he's hoping for the occasional morsal and yes, I oblige him. Some might not like seeing a dog like this when you are eating and that's your choice, but Henry knows this is the line I allow him and he will happily sit on the floor if commanded, he just likes to see what you are about and if any food is going to be left for him.
“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.”
― Samuel Butler
