Clayton, Spenser, Scooter and Sherman: then and now.

September 23, 2009


I always put Clayton's bowl down first at mealtime. After all, he is the reigning elder. Then, despite the fact that I am holding Sherman's bowl, he ALWAYS goes over to sniff at Clayton's bowl, as if to say, "Sir? What's for dinner tonight?" Fortunately Clayton doesn't mind the brief intrusion and quite conceivably might not be aware of it, so intent he is on scarfing down all the delicious dog food in one big gulp. Sherman is a much slower eater and sometimes I have to hand feed him the first bite to get him started. Clayton then stands a polite distance back and waits....waits....waits...for the rest of the bowl to be HIS!
