Ruby Tuesday – Tartok Time

Every week, we show you pictures of our visit to The Thundering Herd Annex and show you Ruby’s various sneaky ways of snarfing food.  So how can this week’s pictures be any different?  Well, there was strawberry shortcake.  And a certain well-behaved gentleman is a fan of strawberries.

Whoa. Are those strawberries?

So I will just sit here patiently waiting on a strawberry offering.

Or . . . not so patiently.

    The begging eyes!! If the photographer was not there that delicious mound of fluff would be gone before anyone could do anything about it. Guard the dessert!!!

    Tartok?! You are actually leaning towards food? Wow, you must really love strawberries….

    That strawberry shortcake looks great, I’m surprised Tartok was so polite. I don’t think I could have been so patient.

    We hope you got the whole plate, for waiting patiently so long!

    Woooo,

    Sometimes waiting politely is overrated! I’d be pushy for some of that, too!

    Tartok, I don’t see why you shouldn’t get some strawberries, especially if the hu-dad is going to sit there and torture you like that!

    As they say in assertiveness training, “If you don’t ask for it, there is NO possibility that the answer will be YES!”

    Love how they get closer and closer thinking you don’t notice, Sagira does the same thing.

    Mom is drooling all over herself here – those strawberries look so good to her. We are not strawberry fans, but we do love our blueberries.

    Happy Ruby Tuesday, Tartok.

    After strawberries have been sitting out that long and they are still unloved, they must feel lonely. Giving them a kiss would be the nice thing to do. Show your love!

    If this was our pups, a super long hummingbird tongue would come out and snatch one of those strawberries!
