Will work for food

Hey Doggies & you may know...Sherman has this Big Day coming up and we've been pretty excited about it because it means PAWTY TIME at our house (aka lotsa treats!!).

So we were all psyched when Mom cooked up this yummy flank steak for us.

It was even better when she made it into little Dog sized pieces for us to feast on.

But the bad news came...that was Dad's dinner & THIS is what we were left with!!

Umm...hello??? And exactly WHO is that gonna feed???? And Mom had the nerve to cut this little tidbit into even smaller "training" sized pieces. Training??? Mom...I thought I had you perfectly trained.

Apparently, Mom has not been impressed when she calls my name & I've been searching the yard for Tadpole or Marvin or super studly Stanley or the new hottie on the block, Rowan and I ignore her. Hey Mom! Soooooorry! I'm busy. And popular. You've got to HOLD UP!

But I'm getting better. A girl's gotta learn to separate her Boyz from her Treatz!

Unless of course...the Boyz wanna come callin' WITH Treats!


Cairo The Boxer said...

They make us work for scraps!

Snowball said...

I am luckier. My hoomans will feed my my treats regularly and they will let me try all their food that they think do not contain too much seasoning. Do you want to come over and stay with us?


Joe Stains said...

I might actually consider getting a girlfriend if she came with steak! you guys got ripped off on the little tiny bit of leftovers!

Nugget said...

Steak in training pieces - Whats the world coming to! You got my attention with the great steak picture,,, I could almost smell it - Yum-O.


Texas's Mum said...

Hey Guy and Girls,
I to have to work for
the food stuff even MY OWN
kibble and canned stuff.
And Lola my mum LOL with the last
thing you said but she agrees with you.

Love and Licks
Texas (and His humans).

Jackson said...

Hey Sherman, how come you only got ONE piece of steak, but Lola & Penny got TWO? That's not right, particularly with your special day approaching! I'm going away tomorrow so I'll miss you big day, but I'll be thinking of you pal! J x

Ruby Bleu said...

You were robbed!!!! That's all I can say, robbed!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Amber-Mae said...

Aha! I knew it! There's no such owners in this world that will give a huge piece of delicious roasted meat! No way...They only give us scraps like what Cairo said. I don't call those treats. Hmmppff! But they sure looks delicious to me...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Peanut said...

See my penny is so smart she didn't even need to be told to sit she just did it.

Katherine and Pippa, said...

Thought your mom wasn't meant to be much of a cook or a baker or something?

That looks pretty good from here...

Bet dad liked it.


coco said...

ohmydog the drool is getting all over the keyboard...

hey wait a minute. i'm pretty sure sherman only got ONE treat while lola and penny got TWO. what's up with that, mom??? hopefully he got his second bite after the filming session ended.

and he even wagged his tail while sitting - you think that's easy????

in the interest of fairness, coco

The Brat Pack said...

You guys are soooo well behaved!! We can't believe you only got the butt of that steak. That's just wrong.

We thought your Mom didn't cook for your Dad anyway. He would have never missed it.


Frasypoo said...

That was hilarious !! I do that with mommy and am the most obedient dog with daddy !!Lately he has give me more scraps than she has!

Reina said...

i will work really hard for that steak!
I work like SH*T for just some lousy treats! UNFAIR!


Maggie said...

Steak scraps are rare at our house so I'd take anything I got! I honestly think you guys are lucky!

Love ya lots,

Eddie N Peaches said...

O Our Dogness! We are drooling. Someone get us a bib. We're gonna leave your blog up on the screen so Momma can get some good ideas from it! Tee hee. Heck, we'd even be willing to sit for some steak!
Drooly Whoofs and Baroos,
Eddie & Peaches

Stanley said...

It's so deceptive, really...

Looking at the video you would think it was your *mama* that had *you* trained so well.

BWaaaHaaaHA! Now, THAT'S funny!

Goober love,

You look for me in your backyard? Am I ever there?

Lorenza said...

That steak really looks good! And you got only tinny pieces!!
I hope next time your mom will have more for you!
I am impressed with your good manners!
Have a nice day

Mmm, did you say steak?? Next time, make sure Dad gets the small portion, k?


Randi said...

I told Wally that I bet your human are just pinching themselves silly today & thinking to themselves, "How did we ever get so lucky to have such a handsome boy as Sherman..."
Have a great day!
Love & Licks,

wally said...

Sherman--I hope you are having the biggest party EVER. Don't share too much with your sissies. They'll expect it.



Oh my dog that video is too cute. You all did such a good job of sitting and waiting nicely for that juicy steak! Well Done!
Jazz and Dixie

Happy Happy Happy Gotcha-Adoption-Burpday Sherman!!!

Momo :) said...

that steak looks so good! You three were so well-behaved. Impressive impressive.. I would be very loud.

Momo xoxo

fee said...

she cooked that that slab of big fat juicy steak and all you get is that tiny sliver, to share??? she is as evil as my mom!!!

wally said...

Sherman--Your mom went to NEW JERSEY on your burpday? Why that borders on abuse (insert Jersey joke here). She'd better throw you a big guilt-ridden bash when she gets back! I have some ideas, they may involve Dot and a pole.
