Ruby’s Reflections: eating treats, the Ruby way
Hi everyone! It’s Ruby! It’s been a while since I got to write something here!
Mom said I should share with you what I do when she gives me treats. She says it makes her laugh every single time I do it. I don’t know what she’s talking about. Treats are serious business, and there’s nothing funny about eating them!
As soon as Mom gets out the bag of treats, and puts a piece in front of me, I reach out and put my paw on it. You never know, Mom might change her mind and take it back. Also, sometimes, Allegra tries to snatch my treats away from me if Mom isn’t fast enough in getting Allegra’s treat out of the bag! A girl can never be too careful. Once I can be sure that the treat is mine, I start batting it around a little. Mom always laughs when I do that, which makes it even more fun. I love making Mom laugh.
Once I’ve batted it around a bit, I eat it, and then I go back to Mom for another treat. Usually, she gives me a second one. I must be a very good girl, because Mom says only good girls get treats. Actually, I think it’s because I’m so cute, she just can’t resist.
I really go crazy when Mom gives us our dental treats every night. First, Mom brushes our teeth. Then she gets out the treat bag. Allegra and I sit side by side and wait for her to take the treats out. She can be so slow sometimes! These treats are pretty big. They’re almost as big as a mouse! I bat mine all over the living room and down the stairs! Allegra usually takes hers and runs to the bedroom with it. Like I’m going to take it away from her! I’m far too busy having fun playing with mine. Once I’ve batted it into submission, I sit down and enjoy it. By then, Mom is usually laughing again.
Do you have special treats that you go crazy for?
