Bad Timing

This is me, Stanley.  Yesterday a terrible thing happened.  Mom and dad came home from their long run and Dad put a bagel on the nightstand next to the bed and then got into the shower.  The terrible thing was that mom came out of the bathroom to get dressed just as I was introducing my tongue to the bagle.  Dang, foiled again!  

So I've been trying to make dad feel guilty and reminding him how loyal I am and that I REALLY deserved that pretzel bagel.  Here is what I do when dad is NOT in the truck.  I faithfully wait for him.

Doesn't a faithful dog deserve a pretzel bagel?

Stanley & Murphy


  1. one? 87 I think... and humans should be grateful that we taste their snacks with our tongues, right?

  2. Geeez Stanley sounds to me like you need to work on your eye/mouth coordination! Of course as I say this mom reminds me that you are a well mannered gentle mandog and always wait to be told before indulging in foodable....and then she adds NOT at all like you Madi. Yes faithful deserves reward...maybe in the form of I SCREAM..
    Hugs madi your bfff

  3. These parents will never understand that anything and everything in our reach is ours

  4. Totally!!! Seems like you should have gotten a bit of cream cheese on that bagel too!! Pawrents can be so ungrateful sometimes!

  5. If not a bagel, then two yum yum doggie treats for the photo sessions, as is written in the Yum Yum Coalition Rules For Doggie Employment. Plus more for your ongoing vigilance in keeping an eye out for your Dad.

  6. Stanley, you make a very strong case to be given a pretzel bagel.
    Two even.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail is puzzled by the concept of a 'pretzel bagel'.

  7. He HAD to have left it there just for you --- right?!?! How could your mom interfere like that?!?! You totally deserved it!
    Yours sincerely,

  8. Of course you do! Is there any question? (Bad luck about getting caught though.)

  9. WHAT???? Didn't Mom let you have it??? If your tongue touched it, it must be yours!!!

  10. yes. YES! still, just be faster on the grab if you get a next time, Stanley :D

  11. I agree with Lightning....you lick it ~ it is YOURS!!!! It's been a rule since Ma was a kid (her brudder said so, as he licked all her food....), and remains a RULE! I means, what did your Pops do? Eat it? AFTER YOU licked it?? He could gets cooties or somethings! BOL!!!
    MY STUD MUFFIN: I knows YOU would have moved WAY too fast to have gotten caught...you would have eaten it AND had your peeps OJ by the time anyone caught you! You Ninja ManDog you....☺
    It's gonna be all drizzly tonights, so I may have to bark with you from the window...you knows I don't likes gettin' my furs wet....
    Your Fiance, the one with the most FABulous furs, Ruby ♥

  12. Your dad left it unattended - it should be yours
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  13. You definitely deserve a bagel! I'm sure he left it there for your enjoyment.

  14. So like I'm pretty sure you were just tasting it to make sure that it was ok for Dad to eat it. Right? So like between that and faithfully watching to make sure he makes it back to the car ok you should definitely have your own pretzel bagel. Maybe 2. ~Bonnie Pup

  15. Yes yes you do deserve a bagel. How could they resist that beautiful face?

    Puppy Growls,

  16. We think your dad fur-got...all kings have food tasters. It's good security. 😇

  17. We agree dear furiends a faithful companion does indeed deserve tasties every now and then. We think you're going to have to tell him louder.
