furst: I was DA BESTEST PHENNY yesterday night. I ate no kids nor their treats, no barkfeast nor nuclear meltdowns happened. I was in the living room, played a little with my toys…
…and then I slept on the couch like a log. My dad who wanted to be the treat-guy was as busy as a cross-eyed air traffic controller and ran to the door efurry 5 seconds… while me and the mama were on da couch and enjoyed da evening… seems to supervise da Weimaraner was the better job…..just saying… butt back to business:
guess what? I’ve found a new trick how to steal food from the table…
… furst: pick your victim, but pick it wise, the best is a dad or another male pawson, they are easy to handle…
… act as if you wouldn’t be not intrested in the things on the table…but always have the prey in your sight…
… some fine tuning to come closer to the object of desire…
…diversionary maneuver… aaaand…
…GOTCHA!!… now run or at least change the side of the table…
… the other side of the table is a challenge… here the dragon rules who always wants that I sit on my shame-ofa while they stuff their bellies with all that good things…
… bewitch that dragon a little… aaand…
…CRAP! the bowl there is empty… what a waste of energy and endless wisdom…. butt there is always a next time, right?
While speaking of food, Bacon asked me if I can host the SHOPPING AROUND DA WORLD in november too… and I said YES!
So for this month I picked POTATOES. You can use them like you want, for a cake, a snack a meal or you even can use it for hooch… butt not like the peep from russia who beamed hisself to nirvana with his diy-booze and sadly all his funeral guests too who celebrated his trip to the pink poney ranch with the booze they found in his crib…
the day is: FURRYDAY NOVEMBER 24th
the topic is: POTATO
and all you have to do is to share a recipe with potatoes and the prices for the ingredients… then link to http://www.piglove.wordpress.com and you are in the game…
There once was a POTATO named Tater
who worked in a restaurant as a waiter
But Tater was stout
when the hashbrowns ran out
he was downsized by a cheese grater…
HAVE A GOOD ALL HALLOWS DAY
Ha! Ha! Think of it as a good practice session! Next time, the bowl! You can do it doggy!
An empty bowl…..after all that build up. Your dad seems selfish! I loved you as a potato, Phenny.
You certainly did try to develop some new and very sneaky techniques for food bowl raids at the table but both your parents had “PHENNY RADAR” and were able to keep you away. You need to re-think your strategy! You really make an excellent potato though – that potato suit SUITS you just fine………my Mom and Dad eat potatoes a lot so I’m sure Mom can share one of her tater-recipes next month.
Happy Day After Halloween!
Better luck next time!
10 out of 10 for style. Not so much for results!
it will take a few more tries I think Phenny- but you are almost there! have a good day ❤
hmmmm… maybe you have to work more from the angle of lying on the floor looking starved and draw on their pity-card??? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
One of my assistant’s favorite foods are potatoes! Very good trick, by the way and nice work not eating the treats or little humans. I did pretty good with that, too.
OMG, Phenny, are you sure you didn’t eat your dad’s ear? The photographical evidence provided in this blog post is not decisive on this issue.
LOL! Your potato stories had me howling! We closed the shades, turned out the lights and hung out in the back room to avoid the pesty kids at the door. Only one was dumb enough to ring the bell at a dark house, but we did not answer.
Luckily we don’t get any of those trick or treaters, because Luke and Cricket would not behave nearly as well as you did, Phenny, and that would not have been a treat for us! 🙂
Loved this 🙂 good to see all of you!
Da Phenny this line made mom howl w laughter and then she told Dad and he howled too
‘treat-guy was as busy as a cross-eyed air traffic controller’
Dad said you and your staff say the funniest things.! Thanks for the LOLs
I loved your Tater poem too
Hugs madi your bfff
Squeals with piggy excitement. You were that close brother!! Awesome plan. I will definitely remember that in the future. And potatoes. We love potatoes!! Writing it on my calendar now. Thanks for helping out! XOXO – Bacon
Reblogged this on Piglove and commented:
Oh friends – it’s time to mark your calendars for Shopping Around the World for November. My brother Phenny is helping us out again this month. November we are doing potatoes!! Can’t wait to see recipes. Mark your calendars 🙂 Snorts and oinks!
You did some great maneuvering there Phenny. We always get to lick the plates when our pawrents are done and sometimes they leave a little something from dinner on the plate too.
Hmmmm… I have never been a food thief, so it’s all new(s) to me!
I’m proud of you Phenny!! We didn’t have any trick-or-treaters last night. The girls have their Daddy wrapped around their little paws so I have to watch constantly. Looks like you’ve got your Daddy wrapped pretty well too! 😉
What about potato wine? You can get it in white, purple and dessert (sweet potatoes). You’ll be rich. Apellation controlée-Bretagne. You just have to avoid the French Canadian “potate” and use “pomme de terre”.
I think your tactics are smooth as silk, P. But don’t give up so easily. An empty bowl isn’t considered empty till you have licked it, slurped it, and drooled in it. Then it’s clean.
Love and licks,
That is a most clever move! We shall try that, Thanks!
I’m too short to do dat Snatch and Grab. Sigh.
Tater Day sounds like FUN! Does it have to be a recipe for a pup or human OR BOTH?
whatever you want… taters for terriers sounds good ;O)
You have some great food stealing moves! We will try to remind the mom to share a potato recipe this month.
Well, those were some darn good moves Phenny!
At least you have long legs! Otherwise its the same at my house, dad’s always slipping me something where I get nothing from mom. Love Dolly
The Momster is the no-food-from-the-table drill sergeant here too. But we all know how to do the under the arm trick with our Dad. Then we use our eyes and he falls for it all the time,much to Mom’s chagrin:)
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Phenny, next time do make sure you get in there while there are goodies still to steal…
BOLBOL!! What pawsome food stealing techniques AND Mama is still giggling at your Tater Poem!
Rosy, Arty & Jakey
Great lesson, Phenny ! We are smaller than you and have other tactics, but it’s always interesting to see how bigger pals do ! Purrs
i, Marvelous, LOVE my Mommy’s supper…well, not peanut butter and jam sandwiches…but anything with cheese or meat…I am in there! Mommy can not leave her plate without a cover on it, or I help myself! Like Pizza last Friday…Mommy left it on the stove after it came out of the oven, I waited until it had cooled and I stole the pepperoni until Mommy caught me…
I think I shall use some of your tactics in future.
Thanks for the tips on snitchin’, Phenny!
Great techniques, Phenny. May we suggest one used by a deerhound cross SHE had in the past that threw her front paws around HER neck in a big hug, while stretching the head and tongue…clearing the plate.
You are the master Phenny! You know it is funny – we live in Idaho where they grow a lot of potatoes and we rarely eat them
Hazel & Mabel
MOL>>>ROFWL>>>> Oh Phenney you made us laff so much with yur post. Yur Pappaw ISS a soft touch which iss a good fing…..thee noodless look so-o tasty! An yur Mumma thee sweetest ‘Dragon Lady’ efurr fooled you…yur teck-neek was pawsum butt shee outsmarted you…..next time mee furend, next time!! 😉
**Hi-5’sss** Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=
This is where being a small dog is a big advantage We can jump up on a chair and then put our front paws on the table. When the human looks away I jump on the table unnoticed and eat their food.
Good try on the plate Phenny. We’re having acorn squash tonight. Do you like squash? Sammy and Bear love pumpkin 🎃 cookie treats. We had lots of pumpkins and squash.
Lady will try and get the right day this month. She posted early cause she is dumb . . . .Potatoes are also something she can cook with!
Great supervising your dad eating.
Good job Phenny! Oreo has your skills. He moves at the speed of light. First he’s across the room… then, before you can see him move, he’s under your end of the table, waiting for you to make a mistake with that fork! Dogs are so sneaky!
OMD my ma i laughing so hard.
Your house is like ours ma gets me nothing from her plate either.
Haha you have your methods.
Petcretary says she is not too sad that us has da short legs…though…we are good at jumping…splat! right into the middle of all the yums!
I, MJF tried that once…how strange my peeps acted…
Dalton hasn’t done that…yet…he has figured out that chairs make good step ladders…woe is the peeps if they leave them pulled away from the buffet of yummy things!
Taters??? We don’t see our peeps eating those anymore…only sometimes a sweet potato…aka a yam.
Oh Phenny…you are adorably clever with the pawrents. No wonder they love ya. Sam and Elsa find that nose under the arm snatch most effective when it comes to filching a bite from the huMom’s plate.
You are sneaky!! You cleaned dads face real well
hello phenny its dennis the vizsla dog hay those ar sum ace fud steeling moovs for shoor!!! tucker wood be prowd of yoo!!! ok bye
