    I see that look every evening about 5:00. It’s called the “Poor Pitiful Starving Dogie” look.It continues until I stop whatever I’m doing and a nice bowl of cottage cheese appears at HRH’s feet.

    This is the greatest part of having a furbaby! If you give in to that “I’m starving look” which I do, you never have to worry about gaining weight! <3
