Dog Food Fetish - YUM!

For some reason, Ashlyn LOVES dog food. I have no idea why, but if I were to put a PB&J next to a bowl of dog food, she would go for the dog food. She has eaten more dog food in her short 19 months here on earth than I would like to keep track of. But she doesn't get it from our house. We have to keep Cooper's food outside so she doesn't get the opportunity to partake of it on a daily basis. However, I have to keep my eye on her when we visit other dog-owning homes. If she spots a dog bowl of food on the floor she will make a B line right for the bowl and shove as many pieces as possible in her mouth before I can get to her. GROSS!

This picture perfectly captures her obsession. Upon arriving at Grandpa & Grandmom's house recently, Ashlyn immediately asked for a cookie. Grandmom always keeps her cookie jar full and the grandkids know it. So, I gave her a cookie, which seemed to satisfy her. WRONG. She wandered over to the pantry, opened the door and was delighted to find a big bag of dog food waiting just for her. She dropped the cookie (it is at the bottom of the pic) and grabbed the bag of dog food. She was attempting to open the bag when I intervened and took it away. What a mean mom I am. I do not understand why someone would choose dog food over a cookie?! Oh well, to each their own I guess. Hopefully this is just a phase.

That is pretty funny! I hate to admit that I remember trying dog food (I must've been older) and I thought it tasted good! Maybe Ashlyn gets her tastebuds from the Lifferth side!

I can't attest (sp?) to this. My dogs go hungry when Ashlyn visits. A little weird, but we can't help to still love her.

Ha! That is funny. It goes right along with her quirky, silly, hilarious personality. We love that little girl.

That's a funny story. I especially like how you actually caught it on camera. She can come over any time and eat Buster and Lola's food :) I'm sure they would be happy to share! Woof Woof

That is hilarious! It will be a great story to tell her future dates and boyfriends. Definitely one to journal.
