Well, actualy it was the refrigerator.
My job yesterday was supposed to be 12 to 5, so of course I was hoping for a 12 to 3. Unfortunately, one attorney was late, so we started at 2 and went until 8:30! Needless to say, after my hour drive home I was not about to make Phoebe’s dinner, as I had planned. The petsitter came by and mentioned that she didn’t feed her since it wasn’t a regularly scheduled visit and she knew I would be home. I told her if she had checked, wait for it, that the cupboard was bare. Phoebe had tuna and cheerios last night and peanut butter and a tortilla this morning.
Tonight she waited patiently in the kitchen, after wrapping her blanket inexplicably around the bottom of the globe stand, while I prepared Meat-Me-in-the-Backyard Hash from Rachel Ray’s magazine. It just required cutting up some veggies and mixing them with ground beef. Here’s my problem with RR: the recipe calls for a 1/2 pound of beef and doesn’t specify serving size. As if that’s not bad enough, when I checked her web site it said that it’s one serving. For Phoebe that’s three servings. People, it depends on how big your dog is. Seriously, I count her calories. Don’t laugh at me, even though my petsitter laughed at me when I ran into her in the store and told her that. But that’s okay, she can snicker, you can’t, because she has my Phoebe as her phone wallpaper.
I realize her food isn’t fascinating, but she doesn’t care what it looks likes. Along with the beef are potatoes, carrots, zuchinni, and apples. And since I have some leftover blueberries, I added them to her serving.
Fun Fact: A dog’s noseprint is as unique as a human fingerprint. Noseprints are now being used to identify lost or stolen dogs.
