Quite the gentleman

Mom and Dad have still been pretty busy and mom says her job has been a pain lately. So, that pretty much means that I have little if any blogging time. As it is I've had to sneak this time early in the morning while mom is in the bath to catch up with my blogger pals.
Life's been pretty good although I still have some itchies. They are much better, but still there nonetheless. I've switched food again to Ollie's precription science diet food for allergies. Mom's not sure if that's why I am getting better, but she's doing everything she can to help. Which includes lots of baths (which I like) and lots of gunk in my itchy ears..which I don't like. Oh, well, I'm hoping the fall weather helps.
Anyway, I wanted to show my friends what a complete gentleman I am when I eat.

Sometimes mom feeds me from a fork and I an so easy and neat about everything. Guess mom didn't realize how special this trait was until she tried to feed Finnegan and Ollie from a fork and they just don't get the concept. They paw it, or try to lick it off. Dummies. Mom says her schnauzer, Chancellor ate off a fork too so she didn't know it was a special thing (of course he could eat off a fork..mom brags about him all the time...Chancey was SO SMART she says, Chancey was so HANDSOME she says, Chancey, Chancey, Chancey...well, bah humbug....I'm just as good as stinky ol' Chancey) (Note from mom: Mackie- you ARE a wonderful boy and yes, as good as Chancey. You both are just very different, that's all and I don't love you any less.)
Glad she got that straight, but she should have said I LOVE YOU MORE! But at least I have it in print...I AM AS GOOD AS CHANCEY!!! Hah!

pxHi there, Mackie. I'm Miss Lilly May's mom. She's not up to blogging on her own yet being too busy checking all the windows in the house every 45 seconds or so.

Thank you for stopping by and telling her she's pretty. That made her day, especially after the bad hair cut she got about 2 months ago. I read your comment to her and she ran off to see if you were out side the window.

Hey Mackie,

Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Gus said...

Hey Bro! I am quite good with a fork also, but not with a spoon! That is a real tough one, I keep looking for stuff on the bottom.

You goin to Butcho's party?

Joe said...

I can't take the time to use a spoon or fork if I'm going to keep up with Cap at dinner time here. It's every dog for himself at our house. You are lucky to have such talent!

Hmmm, Mackie...can u eat ice cream off a fork??? We're gonna try something...hey, steak would work. Hey, Man, we feel your pain about ur mom's perfect schnauzer. Mumsie's old dog's name was Sarge. Lac and I privately refer to him as the "Sainted Sarge." Sarge was a rascal if there ever was one. It's funny how Mumsie's memory of him is somewhat seen though rose colored beer goggles.

You know Mackie, I think its us bigger wires with laid back dispositions that have good manners. That video could have been me, I also eat great off a fork or spoon. And when Mom or Dad feed me somethng by hand, I take it very gently so as not to bite them.
Missed seeing you today Bud, but Finn is a swell guy.

We can eat food from a fork and lick stuff off a spoon without making a mess. Us Terriers are so clever.
