Food Strike Gone Wrong

These are our bowls of food. This is where Aunt V found our bowls of food earlier in the week when she came over. Why are they on the counter you ask? Good question. Because we didn't eat them in the morning when Mom served them to us before work. Why not? Because we're spoiled dogs taking a stand!

Mom usually adds stuff to our kibble. It could be wet food, pumpkin, yogurt, scrambled eggs, even shredded cheese. Do you see any of those yummy items in our bowls? No.

We are not amused by our food, so we haven't been eating it. So that means we go the whole day without eating. If we're lucky, Mom will give us a few treats or a bone to eat. We end up getting hungry by the end of the day, and we have no choice but to eat our boring food.
This has been going on for over a week already, and it's messing up our eating schedule. We're not sure why Mom stopped giving us extra toppings in our food. We did hear her say something about not wanting to  spend money on two types of foods. Whatever.

The other day Mom didn't feed us at all. Well, she gave us treats and bones and table scraps so our bellies wouldn't be completely empty and she said she was gonna feed us in the morning like usual.

So we had to wait.

The next morning it was no different. Same food. No toppings. But we were so hungry we ate anyway.
Oak: I thought we were still on strike?
Swish: Forget that, I'm starving. Mom's not budging.

Oak: Fine! But I'm gonna eat piece by piece to show Mom I'm still upset.
Swish: Good luck with that. 

Mom said after we start eating our food like normal and stop stressing her out and giving her problems, she'll go back to giving us yummy toppings on our food once and while as a treat. Guess we'll be eating.

Lots of licks,
Swisher and Oakley


  1. Hi Swisher and Oakley!

    You guys are too funny! Sometimes you have to take a stand.
    Especially when it involves delicious toppings on your food.

    We hope you had a nice weekend!

  2. Oh my goodness boys, you are our soulmates fur sure! You see, this post could have practically been on our blog with pics of us. Mom has tried COUNTLESS types of food, even the very most expensive and we will only eat Royal Canine. That is it. And we only eat it sparingly...none of this business where Mom puts it down and we eat it all. Nope! We can even go days without touching it too even with meanie Mom not giving us any people food. Other people think it is so strange that we are not food motivated, but the thing is, we are...we love people food! We just aren't kibble motivated, he he he. Battle of the wills for sure, but you guys stood your ground pretty well. Leave it to the Pugs to mess it up for us right Oak? Coco eventually gives in too, while I am holding out for cheesy sprinkle goodness on top. I could smack her sometimes I tell ya :)
