It's Like That. Exactly.

You know how one of the perks of owning one of these--

Our dog Romeo

is how they'll snarf up anything resembling food on the floor?

Drop a Cheeto, gone. Cookie crumbs? You betcha.

Don't want a dog? No worries.

Get one of these:

Same result--except you don't have to worry about chocolate.

What?!!! Are you comparing our sweet, darling Romeo with a c-h-i-l-d? I'm sure his feelings are hurt...just look at his face! Haha! I love that dog!

That reminds me of "The 5 Second Rule" clip on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IsYOGM7wyns

In our house it used to be Shelties... multiple furry vacuums that cleaned up every little crumb. (I bred, raised, trained and lived with them for 35 years.) Then we acquired Labrador Retrievers, too. Their mouths are much bigger and I guess crumbs are too small to register. Now that we no longer have a Sheltie to trail after the Labs the crumbs are left on the floor to crunch under my bare feet. That, and for some reason Labs never swallow the last mouthful of water before walking away from the bowl, and drool a path of water across the room. That also feels just wonderful under bare feet!

Thanks for your comment on my blog today. It's gratifying to know that my words are meaningful to readers.

I love my dog for this very reason. Having toddlers and dogs? It gets ugly.

Hee hee! That made me giggle!

Looking at my floor right now, a dog starts to look like a good idea...oi.
