I swear he is part human.
This morning after Lou and I finished breakfast he asked to come in to eat his. When he came in and saw only kibble in his bowl he walked away from it. After awhile, he stood in the middle of the floor looking at Lou who said, do you want to go back outside? He just stood there looking at Lou. Lou said, “tell me what you want.” He immediately goes to his bowl and dips his nose in his bowl. Then looks back at Lou as if to say-“Human food please!’ That earned him a ham and egg breakfast. Does he go right over to eat it? No. He sits down under the table to wait for it to cool. After awhile Lou says to him, ” I think it’s cool enough for you to eat now,” He gets right up and goes over to his bowl to start his breakfast. Does he gobble it up like any other dog would do? No, he savors each bite by chewing each piece. He makes sure he doesn’t take any kibble with it so as not to ruin the flavor. When he is done savoring his breakfast to the last drop, he finishes it off with the kibble.
I swear he eats slower than I do. You just have to laugh.
His vet is also a convert now. I took him yesterday for his shots. While waiting he was softly whining. He doesn’t like being there. After his checkup the vet says, “At least he wasn’t crying like the other dogs.” I said yes he was, he just did it quietly because he is a gentleman. The vet looked surprised. Then I said, he is a really good dog. She said, “No, he is the best dog ever!” She’s right! I thank my lucky stars that Lou found you and Beau because she is 100% correct!
We both love Beau! Have a great day!
