Unfair Pizza Night Distraction

We had a cool, rainy, foggy Saturday night, so Hu-Dad had the bright idea to declare it pizza night. Great, until things became unfair.

When do we get to come back in?

When do we get to come back in?

The weather was simply nasty – rainy, foggy, nasty. It wasn’t cold enough to create snow, but still just that yucky winter weather day. So, Hu-Dad decided to get pizza from a local restaurant for dinner. An excellent idea and we were totally game, including the part where he suggested we go outside before dinner.

Wait! You are eating pizza without us!

Wait! You are eating pizza without us!

Can you believe he expected us to STAY outside while the humans ate pizza? And it gets worse – they didn’t even save us pizza bones. The revolution is coming, folks, the revolution is coming.

We protest loudly!

    You didn’t give them pizza bones? As a human, even I find that intolerable. Who eats that trash!

    Excuse woo? No pizza bones at all?? Dogs always rate at least one pizza bone each. Even fat snowball could have just one. Greedy Hu Dad. 🙂

      Qannik with you right up to that “fat snowball” comment. But, then again, you advocated a pizza bone for him.

    Pizza! Pizza! Pizza!

    How can you resist not giving them a bite of crust? Look at those hurtful faces Hu-Dad lol. I’m sure they get enough treats. Hugs and kisses to the herd.
