Ok, http://brutusthefrenchie.blogspot.com/2009/09/our-centennial-post-and-contest-to.html(Click the link to find out more) Brutus the Frenchie is doing a really fun contest where you show a ridiculous thing you do for your dogs!
Chad and I weren't sure what to choose for this contest, but all of a sudden Chad had an 'a-ha!' moment. Mama Day! Here's our picture of Spuds getting fed at Mama's dinner table:
Chad and I have been together for 8 years, and since I've known him (and well, really since he can remember) his Mama has had a huge Sunday dinner every week (excluding vacations of course). If you walk in her house on a Sunday you'd think it was Thanksgiving. Her dining room table easily seats 10 people, but there are always anywhere from 10-20 family members there. Mama and Papa's house is the place for all family get togethers.
Well, lets just say Spuds knows when it's Sunday. It's like he has this internal clock for it. Ever since Spuds was a puppy he's been included in this tradition. He comes every week and gets to walk around the dining room table for everyone to feed him. Everyone is just as worried about making sure Spuds is fed as they are about feeding themselves, and Spuds walks in the kitchen when he's full and waits for Mama to get him his bowl of water. When family pictures are taken, Spuds is in them. We don't have kids, so he's in all the 'family pics' of me and Chad. He comes to every Christmas there to open his presents and wade around in the living room full of wrapping paper. He always gets a piece of cake when birthdays are celebrated. If Mama and Papa are on vacation Chad and I have to go to Bob Evans and bring him back pancakes or he's depressed all day, whining at the door to go to Mama's...
