What "dog days of summer" ???

A good recipe for "dog heaven" is bring in 18 grandchildren to a family reunion and giving the family dog "carte blanche" near and around the dinner table and kitchen. It must have been an easy way to clean up the food messes but not always is a good thing, a control thing. Her best buddies are Squadge and Taters. Of course, Wyatt and Ruby she likes. Then there was Emily and Anna always giving her a doggie bone, and who can forget those wonderful little people for leaving the front door open to let her scamper out the the neighbors and have to be bribed with a treat to get back in the house. Wow, she says, this is too easy.

After nearly a week of unsuspecting grandchildren seeing their food and snacks disappear before their noses, the family dog was again found pilfering the food right out of the hands of the wee little ones. As seen last evening at an outdoor cookout at Erin's back yard, the family dog was going from kid to kid and making easy pickings off Ruby, Shae, Wyatt, Teddy, etc.

Starting tomorrow, the family dog is being returned to her normal diet, no people food, and probably have to attend therapy, missing the kids. Things will return to normal in the household, they'll be just the three of us, but an occassional grandchild or two or three to watch the Disney channel, etc.

There's a grand mess under the high chairs. We need that Po-doggie over to clean up.

P.S. And I can't even figure out which baby that is. The kids are voting on Tater.
