6.30.12 Two Dogs: One Spoon

30 Jun

Did you ever try to hold your phone camera and give the dogs a spoon at the same time.  Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, but I am not very good at this.  Every meal when I feed the zoo, I do the same thing. All 7 are milling about the kitchen, whether morning or night.  I tell them it is feeding time, and Stella and Nine run down the hall to the kitten room and jump over the dog barrier and I shut the door behind them (with me still in the hall).  Now, I head back to the kitchen. I take the left over food cans from the frig and set the on the counter.  Muffin is always helping, so I open a can of cat food to keep him busy.  I take out the spoon, spoon some wet food into the dog bowls and scoop a cup of the dry from the canister on the floor.  Mix with water and Valhalla! – dog mush.  Then I make them sit and wait until I say ‘Let’s eat!,’ at which time they chow down at the dog feeding area and I go back to the counter.  I pull out 3 bowls and mix up the 2 different wet and kitty crunchies, with lots of water, and, using the dog spoon, scoop about 2 tsp into each cat bowl.  They all have their places, Muffin where he started helping me feed the dogs, Noel in the window box, and Kitty on the table.  Now it is time for the kittens (dogs are done now since they tend to ‘wolf’ their food).  I proceed down the hall, with dogs in tow, but enter the kitten room leaving dogs in the hall.  The kittens run to their feeding spot and help me scoop out the kitten wet and dry mix, add water, and Valhalla! again – more mush.  Leaving the kitten room, I return to the kitchen with my spoon and two very happy dogs who would like to clean that spoon for me.  They sit, and then Lulu gets a lick, and then Sofie, and then sometimes they each take a side.  Two dogs – One spoon.  7 dinners.

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    How adorable! Feeding time sounds like quite an event! We also do the water technique with Taylor…she seems to enjoy her food a lot more with the added moisture! 😉

      Thanks – the more water I can get in the animals, the better, I figure.

    When she was little, my daughter had trouble understanding the concept of sharing. Taking turns, on the other hand was crystal clear! Sofie and Lulu demonstrate beautifully! 🙂
