Feed Me

Standard

Anyone remember that movie Little Shop of Horrors with Steve Martin and Rick Moranis? “Feed me Seymore!” Poor Dixie suffered from a “Feed Me” moment the other night.

As I went to get the dogs their food, Dixie ran for her bed. She knows she is to go and lay down in her bed and wait while I fill her food bowl and she knows to stay in her bed until I tell her, “release.” I thought she looked so cute with her eager face so I busted out the camera. Of course, that cute look was replaced with the above look – “what’s going on here? This is not the norm.”

So, I tried to move in a little closer. Surely I could get her to perk back up!

Still confused. I thought maybe if I got down on her level and said her name very sweetly that would do the trick.

Instead, that resulted in . . .

an even more perplexed look.

I will spare you the remainder of the pictures of me trying to get her doggy smile to return. They just continue to show more confusion and disappointment at being kept away from her food bowl. I finally relented and she flew to her dinner with her tail swinging happily behind her as she munched on dinner.

Ah, the life of a dog. Hope y’all have a good evening!
