Snarfing a blueberry loaf cake from a kitchen counter makes some sense, but Hu-Dad questions the green bean caper pulled off yesterday by Typhoon.
And, yes, this is yet another tale of the delinquency of the Little Prince Typhoon Phooey. Hu-Dad swears Typhoon invents new ways to be bad every day. For the record, the Little Prince really doesn’t care that he has broken yet another rule for the eleventy-seventh bazillion time.
Preparing the dogs’ breakfast Sunday morning, Hu-Dad needed to open a new can of green beans (for Qannik, the perpetual dieting dog). We buy giant cans of unsalted green beans, open, drain, rinse, and then store them in resealable containers. Hu-Dad had accomplished all of the tasks except for the sealing the top part because, well, it is a giant bowl of green beans. What dog could possibly be interested in a giant bowl of green beans?
Dogs are fed. Dogs are released from their crates (We are fed in crates, because, for some odd reason, Hu-Dad expects certain dogs not to respect food rules).
The original Bad to the Bone dog (yes, the George Thorogood song is his theme song) races to the kitchen, jumps up on the kitchen counter, and starts inhaling green beans as fast as he can.
P.S. – For those of who don’t know about the green bean diet, it is the most effective way Hu-Dad has ever found to manage weight for canines. You simply reduce the amount of food and replace that with green beans (fresh green beans are great, but canned, unsalted work, too.) The vegetable provides bulk to help a dog not feel hungry and yet effectively reduces the caloric intake.
Movie Memory Monday
Landon earned his nickname “Boom Boom” because of his zany zoomies, racing around the house and leaping through the air. This particular Movie Memory Monday highlights the Multi-Speed Boom Boom. Hope you enjoy this look back to Landon’s early days at Chez Herd.

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
