My Dog is an Opportunistic Ass

This post was supposed to be a review of the Merrick Power Bites we received from  But Bruce had other plans.

I took this photo.

I then made the mistake of leaving the room for a couple of minutes.  Stupid me left Bruce unattended with treats.  I know, I know.  I am sure anyone can guess what occurred.

I walked in on him finishing off the bag of treats.

That's residual paint on his paw.  It's a long story.  He's an ass. Read his tag.
He helped himself to the ENTIRE bag of treats.

Suffice to say, big boy enjoyed these.  Though I would have preferred that he had not eaten the entire bag.  They are small, soft treats that are salmon-based.  I am sure they were delicious to him.  Knowing Bruce, he would have eaten them all even if they weren't, because that is his MO.  If he has the slightest inclination that he is not supposed to have something or do something, that makes him want to have or do it even more.  He truly is a difficult dog, and after four years one would think that I'd have figured this out.  His resource guarding only makes everything more difficult.  But I love him.

Anyways, Bruce gave these treats four paws up.  They contain decent ingredients, and I am quite sure they would have come in handy as training treats for all three dogs if only Bruce knew how to share.

Live and learn.  Again.

  3. The Ginger Sisters went crazy for the chicken flavor of these, which we received as part of our prize package for being runners-up in the "Name the Can-test." Boca nearly took my finger off for one and she is usually so gentle! I guess they are irresistible.

  4. He made this the funniest review i have read for a long time.

  5. Lol! Oh Bruce, you are so funny :)

    This actually reminded me of the banana bread I left on the counter this morning. Fingers crossed Bain doesn't go after it before I'm home from work. Lol!

  6. I think couldn't get any better statement than this. That's hilarious. Poor belly though. lol

  7. OHMYPUG the entire bag!!!!!! Wow he is my hero.
