Taking Applications

The New York Times has a story on the rise in popularity of pet cookbooks since the Menu foods recall since, well, we now know that our food can kill us. And look! The story has a picture of a corgi (I think) to illustrate dogs who ought to be eating well. So, in order to facilitate my feeding, I'm taking applications for a personal chef because my ma has a whole shelf full of vegetarian cookbooks but no MEAT AND WALLYMELON AND BANANAS cookbook. What's up with that?

The story includes this snotty comment:

Most recipes in the books differ somewhat from human fare. Take, for example, the “Better Food for Dogs” presentation of Barbecued Hamburgers: “Cut burgers and buns into bite-size pieces. In a serving bowl, combine burgers, buns, tomato, lettuce, oil, potassium chloride and supplements. Mix thoroughly.” (None of the recipes suggest garnishes or wine pairings.)

Of COURSE there's no wine pairings. Everyone knows dogs drink beer.

Sophie would love to be your personal chef. Just one thing though, she does tend to be a bit mood around food and has been known to attempt the murder of any beast within sniffing range when her plate is being prepared. But she would never hurt you, Wally. And she would never try to eat your Meat and Wallymelon and Bananas before you could, Wally.

As for assertive training, it is true that when it comes to the young Cha Cha, Sophie will put up with just about anything. She would invite you out to assess the situation, but she is afraid that you too would fall under Cha Cha's charms and forget all about her.

I don't need it prepared. Just throw it in a bowl - don't even stir!

Do any of the recipes include cat poop from the Litterbox Cafe?

Starry has been digging stuff up and eating dirt...not sure what that is about, but perhaps she could arrange some dirt pairing.

I'll be your personal chef as long as I get to lick the bowl clean (but then there wouldn't be anything left for you). Doh! J x
