Pooches: Miss M Wants

 
Even though our pooches have their very own dog treat bar and they get to try a variety of other stinky treats, unbelievably Miss M has a different favorite treat: Apples!
Miss M can be in a deep slumber at the other end of the house, but she will jolt awake and come running the minute she hears me bite into an apple. She will proceed to hover over me until she gets that one morsel of apple.
We couldn't understand where this addiction came from, until I received this video from my brother. When we had gone out of town awhile back, Miss M spent the weekend at my mom's house where she had the time of her life being able to sit on the couch and eating pear-apples from my mom.
Just watch how tempted she is in this video my brother took titled "Miss M Wants":
Is it really possible for dogs to have food-associated memories?

Mugsy is the same way but with alllll food. If he hears the fridge open and someone doing something in the kitchen, he needs to come and check it out. He will sit on the rug in front of the sink so he doesn't slip on the tile floor and follow our every move with his eyes. He does it at the dinner tab,e too but once he realizes he isn't getting any he heads back to couch. He will typically make a stop at his food bowl on the way back because if we do decide to give him a little taste we put it there. Smart lazy boy

I LOVE her!!! Melvin has the same obsession, I need to dig up the video of me eating an apple and him watching -- so much drool falls from his jowls that it's almost terrifying!

Miss M. is just too cute!

All we have to do is open the drawer in the fridge where the cheese is kept and Boomer and Dottie are right there. Cheese is their thing!

Petey will wake up out of a deep deeps sleep the second he hears me cracking hard boiled eggs!

Oh my gosh that video is PRICELESS! Our boys love apples too (and pears, oh my lord do they love pears!) All I could think after watching that was, "Well did she get the apple or not??"

Edwin shows up the second I open my jar of peanut butter - and I don't even share with the dogs. Theirs is 100% peanuts in a glass jar from the fridge while I have plain old Peter Pan from a plastic container in the cupboard. Similar scent, but different sound. However, he has gotten to lick my empty peanut butter jar once so maybe that's what did it!

Our pups just split an apple yesterday after their hike! Hades' newest bizarre addiction is parsley. I opened a bag in the kitchen yesterday and Jay said, what did you do? Hades just perked up. I told him it was just parsley and Hades ran in for a sprig which he chomped like it was a rare steak!

That video is too funny. I like it when she pretends she doesn't want it for a second...very cat-like! Our beagle growing up wanted to eat anything and everything. She quickly learned the word treat and then she learned the spelling when we resorted to saying the letters instead. I used to torment her by shielding her eyes from a piece of food she wanted. It was her worst nightmare.

Ms. M is so incredibly precious. I adore her. The pups here will do things they should have been ashamed of for a piece of pear. Ridiculous things for a slice of nectarine and UNBELIEVABLE things for slices of sweet bell pepper.
