My dog the junkie

My puppy Pippin literally levitates when he gets to lick the bowl after I've eaten my yogurt. At least the front part of him does. Both legs just tilting up off the floor in ecstasy as he tries to get as much as he can from my cultured offering. It is bot hilarious and impressive. He's the only yogurt loving dog I've ever heard of...he goes crazy when he sees me take out the container and waits eagerly at my feet while I eat, his eyes bugging out of his head at the thought of just a taste. Ryan and I have often called him "Tweaker" because of his excitable personality -- but when he gets yogurt, he actually turns into a strung out addict. I'm hoping it's not a gateway to the harder stuff -- what's next? Frozen yogurt?? Then onto ice cream, and there's just no coming back from that. :)


  1. I can picture him in a back alley trading a few of my socks to a grizzled old bulldog for a taste of FroYo. Yep, that's where my missing socks are...

  2. Sounds like it's time for an interventions! You can't keep being his supplier, you enabler you ;)

  3. LOL! You guys have too much time on your hands....and very vivid imaginations!
