I was in big trouble the other day this past week, friends!
But I have to tell you —- It was SO WORTH it!
And besides… Mom isn’t really that tough. She tries to be mad and mean and tell me when I am bad…
but when I give her the sad, sorry look – guess what?
She believes it! (Can YOU tell how sorry I am from the look in my face above here?)
So Mom had some ribs thawing on the counter early in the morning getting ready to be dry rubbed and roasted all day in the oven for dinner.
While they were on the counter, she was in her office on one of those conference calls she does for work.
Now – I never let her see me do this, but – – if I really need to, I can reach up onto the kitchen counter — especially when something smells as good as RIBS! So – while she was distracted, I swooped up and snagged about a pound of the three pounds she had thawing and swiftly sped out the doggy door.
Here is what some of the ones looked like that I couldn’t grab in time.
O M G Friends! They were TOO DIE FOR! Even in their semi-frozen state.
Mom caught me when I was down to about two ribs and she tried chasing me around the yard for them, but I wasn’t giving in on this one, and we ran circles around the yard while I continued gripping and gnawing at my final ribs.
When I was done, I finally came to her, licking my lips, and looking at her like:
“Did you call me?”
Here I am!” (teeheehee)
I had my own Charlie’s RibFest!
And yep – I got in trouble,
but yep – it was also worth it!
Do you ever have tough decisions to make like that? You know you shouldn’t… You know you are going to get in trouble… but you know it’ll be ok in the end.
And this is how I spent most of the afternoon.
It’s a dog’s life – (happy sigh)…
Anybody having ribs tonight at their house? I’m available!
