the chewie SAGA

What's going on this morning?

Silvieon4 just realized that JD still has his chewie.

Mhhh, maybe if she "stares" him down, he will..."share"???? JD is the slowest chewie eater in the world. He will lick, nibble, savor, slowly , slowly, slowly... eat his chewies. Silvieon4 is the fastest chewie eater in the world. She will "inhale" her chewies as soon as she gets them.  It is a difference in style approach that leads to days like this....

Silvieon4 to JD: "Are you going to eat that?"
JD: "Yes, go away, it's my chewie and I will eat it when I am good and ready."

Obviously this is not the right place to sit and enjoy a chewie.  Not with someone inches away staring you down.

Going elsewhere...

Silvie checks for crumbs and bits that might have fallen off.

The ritual "burial" of the chewie starts while Silvie watches.

This is tedious hard work, but apparently it is very interesting. It captivates the audience.

Under the throw, into the corner deep into the fold with two fold overs of cloth. It must be safe.
The "audience" is following every move.

Tuck, tuck, tuck, tuck....

Pushing it deep into the chair . This is very hard work.

Oops, a tiny part is still "sniffable", pushing deeper.

The "audience" is now settled in and still watching. Quietly, patiently.

Switching corners. This is better, it has a deeper groove.

JD :  "Daddy? Why are you taking pictures?"

JD to Silvieon4  "How long have you been there?"

Silvieon4  "A while. I am allowed to be here. Why?"

JD:  "Great. Sigh. I have to think. Nothing is safe from the chewie inhaler.  I have to think...."

JD: "I am taking my chewie and moving on..."  Of course Silvieon4 is sniffing for bits and pieces that might have fallen off.

Wendy Pooh joins in, she wants to know what is going on.

That's it- this is too much. Too big an audience. This guy is moving on.

Of course... another inspection for crumbs has to take place.

JD is on his way upstairs to go eat his chewie in the quiet privacy of his window seat.

Sometimes, this house feels very crowded...

Yes, he went up... but you really didn't think it would end here, did you?

Of course NOT!  Silvieon4 follows JD upstairs.  And the chewies saga continues...

Pictures by Daddy who patiently documented the saga. Thank you Daddy.

hmm, I believe I must agree with JD on this one. Chewies are for savoring -- except maybe greenies, they are too delish to not just eat on up! Having had to deal with the Gigi dog for over 3 weeks in June and July, I know EXACTLY what it is like JD to have to be protective of ones chewies..Mama would give both Gigi and me the xact same kind of chewie and Miss gulp it down would polish hers off then steal mine. Now I don't normally have to hide my chewies as I am an only dog, so this was quite disconcerting. JD do you have any advice on this? You seem to have it covered.

Silvie, I am soooo with you on this! Whenever we get a chewie, I eat mine right away. I mean, it's yummy, why wait? Ricotta will take his somewhere and later bring it out and flaunt it. "Oh look, a chewie," he says like he's all innocemt or something. Grrr. I'm his best friend; shouldn't he want to share with me?!

Rocky, Keeping ownership of one's chewie is hard in the face of females who play the vixen, innocent, cutsie pohh card. The Gigi is temporary. imagine my life with Silvie and Wendy!. Yesterday I discovered that the girls are not into venturing into the bathroom. I don't know why. I like it. Cool nice floor, smells all lemony, and it is perfect for a quiet place to partake of one's chewie. Oh I know why they hate it! I kept singing, "great day for a bath"!!! Try that Rocky.

Marsh I get your pain. I seriously get your pain. JD takes his chewie out just when the last bit of taste has faded from my mouth.I take his behavior as a personal affront. He never shares. He says my tush can't cash those extra calories. For that alone, I should get to take his chewie, don't you think so?

Marshmallow said...

Absolutely! The nerve of him. You don't make remarks about a little girl's tush--unless it's to say how cute it is!
