Samson Learns a Lesson

Samson Says:

So the other day, I ate most of my dinner and then I walked away for just a minute.


And when I came back, there was Angel --- In my FOOD! Giving me the evil eye!


Like who does she think she is?!! But she looked really mean-spirited and since she is the oldest, I knew I had to let her eat some of it.


But, hey, that's really my dinner. Are you gonna eat it all?!! You're not gonna leave me anything? 


Well, I guess I go and sit in the corner and sulk then. And don't think you'll ever see me walk away from my food again. From now on, I'll eat it all in one swoop, just like Soldier. I guess he had to learn his lesson the hard way too. There's a sneaky thief who lives amongst us. Who'd have thought?!!

Have a nice day everyone!

  2. That reminds me I need to make a video of my two kids at mealtime. They switch bowls about 10 times until they each settle on one to eat.

    Yours are so cute -- Samson is like "what the heck, Angel?" Haha! You snooze, you lose, Samson. :)

  3. Spencer does the same thing to Logan with food - he usually just dives right in and helps himself while Logan is still trying to eat!!! I have to watch them very carefully! Aren't dogs the best though - and so entertaining.

  4. Oh this is not good. You are letting her take over the pack. I spent a lot of time watching all of Cesar Milan's Dog Whisper. Have you seen any of these? He can give you tips on how to get back in control as pack leader. Getting your food is one thing when you leave the room, dogs will do this, but you backing off and letting her have it is quite another.

  5. We live and learn Samson. I hope your Mum saw all of this and she gave you some more dinner.

  6. This has given me a grin!! We've recently encountered the same thing at our house--I'm going to have to make one of our dogs eat in the laundry room because he hurries and gobbles down all his food and starts to make eyes at those that are taking a moment and chewing their meal. I don't know how he doesn't get sick from eating so fast!

    I hope you're having a good day!!

  9. Yup, Samson just learned that old girls like Angel sometimes are the boss. :)

    He looks so dejected sitting against the wall. Poor boy...

  10. Only one dog. No fuss, no muss. No food, generally, either! :)

    Now talk to me about the cats, and the decisions on what to eat, who is eating, when they are eating, which bowl... I think I will just go help with the Peace Accords, it would be so much simpler...

  12. Jill will back off for Jack too, when it comes to the dog dishes, even though they have their own, Jack just picks one and if it's hers, he figures, oh, well.

    Samson really doesn't look happy about Angel getting his food.

    Good pictures!

  13. I can relate. My old Snoopy will eat about half his food and then get distracted and wander off for a few minutes and when he returns, Zeus has polished off what he left. I try to tell him "waste not, want not" but it obviously hasn't sunken in yet.

  14. Poor Samson. Tell Angel you're packing your bags and going to live with Gracie!! We'll leave the door open! ((HUGS))

  15. Oh, poor Samson! I guess you learned your lesson. If it's any consolation, cats are the same way. That's why Rachael and Leon eat in one room while Becky and Gina eat in another. Otherwise, I think that Becky and Gina would be very skinny.

  17. Oh poor Samson. My cats are just the same way....one can not turn their back on the bowl without another one taking over.....better finish it all off the next time Samson.

  18. Samson Says: Thank you all so very much for your nice comments. I appreciate them very much and it's good to know I'm not the only one to get tricked and have my food stolen. So cats are the same way, hmmm...I don't know too many of those critters, but I always had a feeling they may be a bit sneaky. Love you all, your Samson.

  19. We have four dogs and stuff is just going to happen. Looks like Samson took it well.

  20. oops-I think I just erased my own comment. In case I did, what I said was : poor baby Samson! My Bud lives the same life. As soon as he walks away from the food dish, Princess surrounds it with her paws and does not even let him come close until all the food is gone. Even if she is not hungry. Just her way to show Bud who wears the pants in their pack.
