Extra sauce, please

Posted by laurie on September 17, 2012

Our “downtown” consists of a tiny post office, where we pick up our mail, and a family-owned deli/convenience store. They specialize in Mediterranean food and on Saturday Phillip bought our lunch there: a chicken wrap for him and a tuna melt for me. The weather has been spectacular and we ate out on the Taj Ma Patio. The chicken wrap had some kind of yummy Mediterranean sauce on it, and since Phillip didn’t have a plate, he had to lean forward in his chair and let the sauce drip onto the patio rather than his lap.

The boys were very diligent and cleaned up, but their heads were kind of in the way.

It is more like me to rush inside and get Phillip a plate, but I had been lulled into a wonderful 75-degree-day-with-a-tuna-melt kind of mood and I found it much more fun to watch the boys get more and more Mediterranean sauce on their heads. A brief shampoo ensued but just a little of that lovely aroma remains.

    They certainly are giving Phillip (or should I say the tuna melt) their undivided attention!

    Love the photos. Looks like Stanley is in the middle of having highlights put in his hair. Too adorable! And would you look at the yearning in Stanley’s eyes on that first photo? We all recognize that as the “Powerful Beagle Eyes of Influential Manipulation” or P-Beim for short.

      Ha! I thought of highlights too. 🙂 Thanks for the Monday morning laugh. Actually, not so much of a laugh, as we can relate with food on our guys’ heads too.

    I’m surprised they didn’t eat each other by accident!

    This so clearly demonstrates the beagle food obsession! Love the pictures!!

    Did they take turns licking the yummy sauce off of each other’s heads? That’s the sort of thing that happens at our place 🙂

      Exactly what I wasd going to ask 🙂 Thanks for the smiles

      Much to my surprise, no!

      I was surprised and disappointed (kind of :)) when Gomez didn’t thoroughly clean Loaf’s head when she got into the chicken fat. He obsessively licks her tags (license, ID, HomeAlone tag) whenever he gets a chance so I thought I’d only have to shampoo out the beagle slobber, but no help from the Gomer on that incident. She had a lingering smoky smell for a month or so.

    I love love love:
    – Eating al fresco with beagles
    – That yummy mediterranean sauce
    – Foodhead beagles!

    If our two have anything messy to eat (like when we all share an ice cream!) Cassie will lick JBs lips, so desperate is she to make sure she doesn’t miss anything! She will also come up and give us a kiss after we’ve had something tasty to eat, about the only time she gives kisses out! JB is just a kissy boy ………… !

  9. A long time ago I bought some chocolate sorbet. It was hard as a rock so I poked it with a knife and left it out to soften. forgetting about it I went to bed. A few hours later Rosco came to bed completely sticky. It had finally softened and leaked down the counter and he had spent a couple of hours licking it up while it dripped all over him.

    • Karen S. said

      I hope he was okay after eating it, as chocolate is poisonous to dogs.

      • He was just fine. The sorbet was still in a big chunk in the container. He only got the drippings, I had perforated the carton with the knife. Plus they don’t put much chocolate in the sorbet, it’s only for the flavor. I never bought it again, though.

  10. My two would have been right there – licking each other’s heads. We feed Holly first – and then have her go outside so that Buddy can eat in peace. He takes his sweet time and then we let him out. Holly is right there at the door, and rushes in to see if he left a morsel of food. She licks his bowl bone dry so that it actually looks brand new. We laugh and tell her that she does a good job of doing the dishes. Every thing shines once she gets done with it.
