Syncrhonized Begging

First of all, our thoughts are with all the humans and doggies affected by the hurricane Gustav. We are hoping everyone is safe.

Since our storms finally stopped we have been able to get back to our daily routines. Last night we discovered Dad was eating our most favorite snack, Doritos!!! This bag was pizza and ranch flavor, holy COW!

Well, hello Dad, what do you have there???

hmmm Doritos you say???

*licking lips in anticipation*

OMDOG WE GOT ONE. Tanner, be sure to get every last crumb...

You have to smash your face way in the couch to be sure you get every bit of the chip.

OMDOG another one!!!

GRRR I think Tanner's chip was bigger than mine!!!!

Look at that brat laughing at me!!!!!

Dad always says he feels like he is being stalked when he eats, I can't imagine why he gets that feeling????

you guys should totally go to that park! Bentley hates water too, and so did Oz, but they both went in and had good times!

Blogger Bentley & Niko said...

we would go back too, but Niko over did it and her back paw pads are a little ripped up. Bentley never ran or fetched, he just waded out, went for a quick swim then walked the beach a couple times, it was fun!

That is a gold medal performance if ever I saw one! Too bad the olympics are over...

Oh Tanner...happy gotcha day! Sorry I missed it! Hope you got lots of doritos!

Lots of licks, Ruby

You two have super expressive faces! Never underestimate the power of the silent stare. It can get you almost anything. Just think of the possibilities if we banded our staring skillz together...

PS - Cheese-Its are a personal fav. Ever try those? I actually CHEW and TASTE them. Very unlike me.

Blogger Sophie Brador said...

Joey! Your skill for focusing is clearly far more advanced than Tanner's. Did you see the way he is flipping his eyes all about, while yours are on the chip at all times. You should always get two chips for being so on it. Tell your dad I said it's okay.

Blogger Mack said...

You have the most serious face I have ever seen in that video! But then again Doritos are a VERY serious matter!

Blogger Eric said...

Hey, you two would earn a platinum medal for the begging!HAAAAAA!!Your faces are sooooo funny, my 2 leggeded would give you the whole bag for sure!

Happy Gotcha Day Tanner! Hope it was agood one. That kittie cookie looked purrrrfectly scrumptious.

Wags, Eric

You two are way more well behaved than Mojo and me. We get in trouble everyday for jumping on anyone who is eating in our presence. My mom says you look like very good boys, which means more TREATS so you are two smart BTs!

Blogger Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Our pawrents say the same thing about us too. Its like we will stare at the food from the moment it lifts the plate.

Well, we wouldnt be stalking if we had our own plate, dont we.

Joey & Tanner, We love the HBO words too. You can just hollar 'HBO WORD!" at somebody and they just look at you like you're nutty. Little do they know what you just said to them! Seriously,Mom has done it a time or 2 when she was real mad and after dissolves in laughter. (They may come take her away somday...the guys in the white coats that is) You know now what happened to her if she disappears one day.

Great begging skills you two! I am a bit sinister when mummy and daddy are eating too. Apparently I sidle up and then just sit and stare and it's a bit creepy, tee hee!

OMDog, how can your dad not just give that whole bag of doritos to you guys because you're so cute?

When I beg for food, I stand on a lap and stare right into the eyes of the eater, and I usually get swatted away.

I wish I had your patience.

lol! that's funny. Dad always says when he's eating he doesn't have to worry about anybody trying to steal his food ebcause there's so many pairs of eyes on it. We like Doritos, too but our favorite is Cheetos! mmmm, I'm drooling just thinking about them. Luckily they're Grandma's favorite, too so there's always a bag in the chip drawer since she moved in.
