An hour with Scrappy

5:40- Dinner on table, Taquitos and sour cream.  Scrappy begs.  Gets little bits, some chips, licks a plate and an empty cottage cheese container.

5:55- Finish dinner, feed the doggie.  Give him his Cosequin, which makes him feel special as well as helping his joints.  I retire to computer with a glass of milk and sugar-free chocolate chip cookies.

6:00- Begs for cookie bites.  I finish, tell him there's no more.

6:05- He stares at me.  "What do you want?" I say.  Sticks his tongue out just a little.  "I told you there's no more."  He looks at the solo cup of milk.  What, you want to lick this out?"  Barks.  "Wait till I'm done."  I finish, he licks it out.  I go to sit down and watch Barney Miller.

6:07.  Barks.  "What Now?" A long english to beagle conversation follows.  "What, you want out?"  Rooorooo!  I laugh and get up to let him out.  Clean up after him, we come back in.  Sit down to watch Barney Miller.

6:12- Barks.  "What do you want now?"  Goes out to his water dish, comes back.  Barks some more.  "A drink?  It's going right on your head!"  More barking.  Chase him around with the cup of water for a while.  Turn to head for the water dish.  He follows closely.  I pour a couple drops in his dish.  Rooooroo!  Double over laughing.  Pour his water, go back to watching Barney Miller.

6:15- Barks.  "What do you want now?" Grabs his toy.  I take it, try to stuff it up his butt.  He runs around the room, beats up the bathroom rug, plays fetch for a while.

6:20 - He sits on the couch to watch Barney Miller.  I look up from the floor.  "What, now you're done?"  Looks at me and burps.

    1. I was going to say something to the effect of, "I threaten Scrappy with "shoving his toy up his butt" to get him going", but now...

    1. We get Antenna TV here. They play all the old retro stuff. The lineup right now is Leave It To Beaver, Mr. Belvedere, Three's Company, Barney, Sanford and Son, and then I'm ready for bed.

  4. Sugar free chocolate chip cookies? Why bother?
    Scrappy sounds like my "bro-dog." I am ranked way beneath...
