The life of a dog owner

So driving home from work today, I was thinking about what I was going to blog about tonight. Would it be the guilty plea of Vick, or the resignation of Gonzalez or maybe I would see or hear something else that would spark my interest? But when I walked in the door, I knew that tonight was a post about my dog. What did you do, you might ask? He ruined my dinner is all. I had taken out a pack of corn tortillas that I had in the freezer from the last time I went to Trader Joes (I only go there about once a month as I like the other stores that I go to, but they have good tortillas, both flour and corn, and they have pizza dough so that I can make pizza without having to make the dough from hand) so that the tortillas would defrost and I could at them with my black beans and rice that I was going to make. I was actually going to cut them up and make nachos chips out of the tortillas, an easy cheat to make homemade nachos. Anyway, he had eaten the whole package of 12 tortillas. I thought that I had put them up on the counter enough that he could not reach them, but honestly I didn't really think about it when I put them out. I have put other things out and he has never eaten them before, although I know I have to be careful with things I put in the trash so that he does not fish out the leftovers. So he ate the whole package, but of course he left the plastic wrapper. And how smart s this dog, he did not even rip much of the packaging, he ripped where the zip lock is and then ate the tortillas without ripping the rest of the packaging. If he had not left the bag on the carpet and put it back on the counter, I would not have know for an even longer period of time and may have even given him a second dinner, since he ate 12 tortillas, I figure that is his dinner for tonight and he doesn't even seem to be complaining. Normally after our evening walk, he goes right to where the food is kept and wants to be fed and stands there till I feed him, but not tonight. After I sat down, he just laid down too, I guess the tortillas were enough for him. So, I have two tortillas that were in the refrigerator that I guess I will just have to eat and not make the nacho chips

You sound rather patient with the pup. Dogs have never been our forte here hence the 4+1 cats.

What a great dog story! Ah the life of a dog owner is never easy but always good, I think anyway.

Nice to chat on BG Salon last night.

What a crafty little bugger.
That's why I love dogs- they do stuff like this that, while infuriating, are still impressive.
Man, I really need to get a dog.
