Snack Intruder

When a special treat is offered in a large family, a snack intruder always seems to worm his way into the midst of the receiving line.

Hu-Dad’s secret ingredients to gain our good behavior include Stewart Freeze-Dried Liver Treats (yeah, that’s an Amazon affiliate link. You click on it and buy something and we earn a few liver treats). So when Roscoe is enjoying the sunshine and Hu-Dad wants him to come in, he will for a liver treat. Usually.

Maybe I will come in.

Typhoon tries to be nonchalant about his willingness to obey, as shown by his delaying tactics above, but ultimately he comes running inside for a treat.

Do we get a treat now?

Yes, we know, that photo might crush Typhoon’s image as a rebel without a cause, but he did come inside. So he earned it. Unlike some other interlopers who didn’t do anything at all to earn a treat except get up off the couch when he heard the treat jar being opened.

    Look at those Angels…I can’t imagine even 1 of them being mischievous, let alone all 3! (Interject wild sarcasm) I wouldn’t be able to resist 1 of those sweet faces. If I had all 3, we would be out of yummies! Good boys!

    3 out of 5 sitting pretty for a treat is an accomplishment in my book!!

    LOOK at those faces! No matter how or why they have decided to come over for a treat-I could never say NO to those faces and those eyes!! I hope they enjoyed their liver treats! I will have to see if our boy might like some.
