Fish Flakes and Teddy Grahams

First of all, to the people who are regular followers, yes you have arrived at Mama Diaries.  It just looks a little different, because I gave it a makeover.  What do you think?  I worked until eleven o-clock last night doing it.

Now, you might wonder what the heck fish flakes and teddy grahams have in common.  Well, my dog thinks they are part of his diet.  They're what he ate for breakfast and dinner.  I kid you not.

This morning, when I fed the fish, a few flakes fell onto the ground.  The dog was right there scarfing them up.

"Schultz!" I said.  "You're a dog.  Not a fish.  Go eat your kibbles."

He cocked his head and looked at me funny.  I led him to his bowl of kibbles.  "See.  That's what you're supposed to eat."

He sniffed it and wandered off.  He most definitely was not interested in his kibbles.

Later in the day, my daughter asked me a strange question;  "Mama, will Schultz die if he eats teddy grahams?"

"I don't think so," I said.  "Why do you ask?"

"Because Schultz just ate a whole box of them."

"What?  How did that happen?"

My daughter shrugged.  "They were probably on the counter and he found them."

I went into the kitchen to reprimand the dog.

"Schultz.  What is this?  You're not supposed to eat human food.  And look, you still didn't eat your kibbles!  What do you have to say for yourself?"

Right then and there he let out a huge belch.



  1. LOL why eat what you are allowed too, when everything else is so fun? Dogs have a mind of their own for sure.

    1. I can't blame him for the teddy grahams. Those are pretty good. But fish flakes? He certainly has a strange sense of taste!

  2. Hi, Sherry. I like the new look of your blog. The banner is so cute. Life is not boring at your house, is it?
    : )

    1. Thanks! Glad you like it. And yes, life is most certainly not boring at my house!
