Yummy...Three rotis!

"Dear, where did you put the roti canai*?" mum asks dad over dinner.

Dad looks at mum, jumps up from the dining chair and immediately rushes outside to look for the Malaysian pancake* he had brought home for breakfast the next day. Too late...he sees a packet of curry on the floor by the shoe rack, follows the trail to the garden where he sees shredded brown paper with a packet of dahl. No rotis... That's what happens when my humans leave any food on the top of the shoe rack, within the reach of a wily beagle.

Guess who had the 3 rotis for dinner? That's right. This beagle hit the jackpot tonight. Not only did I score my usual 1/2 cup kibble for dinner. I also ate the 3 roti canai with eggs (yeap...that's 3 eggs)! After that heavy meal, I could hardly move. Well, I wasn't going anywhere... My humans sent me to jail and banished me outside.

As further punishment, my humans debated whether I should forego my two meals tomorrow, i.e., my morning and evening meals or just breakfast. What do you think? Post your comment here or vote on the poll on the top right of this blog.

* Roti canai is a fried Indian Muslim pancake which is a favorite for breakfast or tea among food-loving Malaysians. Even so, my humans thinks that 3 rotis for 1 normal person is way too much...let alone for a canine...

jackpot! yeah! but i do hope she'll not get sick!
well it's a hard decision when her next meal will be but have you tried fasting (solids) her? 24 hours. it's quite beneficial for our dogs really.
you can check it out online.
maybe some glucose in her water...?
ps. nope sapphire didn't bite the apple.
pss. she has what i suspect a small abscess in between her toes... there slight bleeding... usually from food allergies :(

9 years old & still mischievous! Good job, Kess. Now let us just hope you won't have some serious runs tomorrow. I think you should get your regular meals tomorrow. Hoomie Melissa disagrees...

Yay for the jackpot!! I wanted to say that you should get two meals a day as usual. But, after reading Sapphire's comment, I also thought it might be a good idea to go fasting. Hmmmm, it really is a hard decision. I can't decide. So, toss a coin!

Ooh, Kess - you DID hit the jackpot!!

As for forgoeing meals - well, I don't think you should miss a meal as a punishment because I'm sure your humans know that it is no use punishing us doggies after the act = we have to be caught in the act and corrected at the time for it to mean anything to us. But maybe it would be good for you to miss a meal just to give your stomach a rest! :-)

Ha! Ha!

Hey, you left it sitting there. What self-respecting beagle could pass that by? (this is Bernie's comment, not mine)

Although, skipping one meal might be in order just cuz there's probably no room in her tummy!

Thanks for signing my guest book.
