Stopping for Pizza

Posted by Francesca

One day, while we were out with Uncle Carlos and Laura Acuna, Carlos decided that he was in the mood for pizza.  After driving for a bit, he settled on Bambino’s Pizza.  Who doesn’t love the aroma of pizza in the oven?

Sharkey!  That delicious smell of melted cheese is coming from in here!  Let's get some lunch!

Oh boo, Sharkey!  No dogs allowed in the restaurant!  Such discrimination.  Don't they know who we are?

That's okay, Francesca!  We can wait out here until the food is ready.  Isn't it funny how excited we get about food, even when it's not meant for us?

It's not funny, it's instinctual!  Dogs are pack animals, so when one of us gets a hold of food, we all get to eat!

Look, here comes Manny from Bambino's to bring Laura Acuna and Uncle Carlos their lunch!

Mmmm, Sharkey, it sure looks and smells good, but you know we can't eat that!

You're right, Francesca!  No matter how much we want it, food like pizza shouldn't be given to dogs!  Ingredients like tomatoes, onions, and garlic are toxic to us, pups!

The problem is our instincts for food take over, so while you and I are obviously intelligent enough to recognize these foods are bad for us, we sometimes can't help ourselves!

Uncle Carlos, no matter how much I beg, don't let me have any of that delicious smelling tomato sauce!  Even the cheese could be a problem, as some dogs react badly to dairy!

Oh Laura, you found me a cheese and sauce-free piece of crust!  Okay, I'll take this one little morsel, but no more spoiling me!

Francesca, since you're part of my pack, I'll share with you!

That's very sweet of you, Sharkey, but I'll pass.  If we get fed too much outside of our normal diet, we might stop eating our own healthy food!

  • Good morning ladies,
    Ummm, I can smell that pizza from here. It looks real good. I bet Uncle Carlos and Laura enjoyed it a lot. Francesca, I must say, I was looking at a close up of one of your pictures and your eye looks fantastic.
    Well, gand, we gave some good answers for Dr. Pia's exam yesterday. Fon't you think Dr. Pia should take us all out for some non toxic pizza for all our hard work? We could all load into Uncle Carlos' vehicle and away we go. hehehehehehehe
    End of week already. These weeks just go by so quickly. Everyone seems to be doing alright health wise so let's try to keep it that way over the weekend. No collapsing, no getting nails caught, no nasty flea bites. Let's all try to have a safe weekend. I will check in later to see what everyone is up to.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Umm pizza; I love the smell of it. When my Daddy eats his pizza he often gives me a little piece of crust. Well sometimes he gives me a lot and I carry it around in my mouth looking like it’s a cigar. I don’t eat much “people” food at all. My food has things in it I don’t like to eat, but it taste so good. Peas, uk; I hate them but when it’s in my food I can’t taste them and I get plenty of veggies that way. The weekend is upon us; have a great, and safe, weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Maddox,Franny,Sharkey,Lynn and all the glue squad,
    Hey we all passed the midterms!! Does that mean we can go surfing with Franny and Sharkey? Just imagine the glue squad hits the beach, gym, laundry, sunning.
    Move over Snookie, Cora belle would love it.
    Maddox, we can smell the pizza too! Sometimes mom gives me some pizza "bones". Now she has to find some gluten free pizza.
    Up early due to the heat, back to work today getting ready for the Subway series, let's go Mets!
    Stay safe everyone and hope you all have a great beach weekend!! High paws- James dean the persian cat and Abby

  • Hi ladies!
    I smell pizza at my house, but I don't eat any. I only get my Cheerios in the morning & sometimes Mimi will give me the tiniest bit of cheese at her afternoon snacktime. Other than that, I HATE vegetables! I love my dog food. Guess that's the way it should be, right?
    Wow, can you imagine Uncle Carlos driving us ALL around town? Would we be in a very private limosine or would we be on a parade wagon where everyone could see us? Dr Pia could ride along, too!
    Have a great weekend everybody.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    Look at you guys out with that wonderful Uncle Carlos and Laura. He is so good taking you everywhere from pizza shops to antiquing to the kids' lemonaide stands in his neighborhood. Pizza sounds really good--yum!! I had a day dream when I was having tea outside looking at my flower garden, that all of you were here and we had a party. All the guys were playing volleyball, Cora Belle was the bouncer and you girls were checking out the flowers and zipping around in the flower garden. Just like when I was a kid thinking of fun times. I will imagine all of you here frolicking and a great weekend. Keep cool and have fun and stay safe.
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn

  • Morning Girls & Lynn, & Glue Squad, Pizza always smells so good. Sometimes Daddy gives me a small piece of the crust, yummy! Yes, another week has passed and the third day of high temperatures here in the NE/ Sure hope it breaks later today; my outside time has been limited, but the cool temperature inside has felt twice as nice, thank goodness for the a/c. Mom & Dad left me alone for a little while last night in the house; however, they were proactive and put me in a crate for the protection of not only me but other things available & in my possible reach. Guess they were trying to say they wanted to come back and find the house still in one piece. What were they REALLY trying to say??? ;) When they came back I was very happy to see them and really didn't mind not having the freedom. B-U-T, I did get the pt before bedtime. :)

    Have a nice weekend everyone - stay cool.

    Till next time,

    Missy Chow

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, You girls sure look like you had fun with Uncle Carlos and Laura Acuna going to Bambinos Pizza West to get some lunch for them to enjoy! I could almost smell that delicious pizza and sometimes my Mom gives me a little crust, also and I love it! Sharkey, you looked so anxious to have a taste! Franny, you didn't really want any. did ya?! I beg for some of the meat Mom eats and she always gives me a bit! Maddox, Kirby, Abby, Rebel, Lynn, and Missy Chow sure loved reading your comments and will check in later to read those of the rest of you great buddies! Sure hope all of you have another great, safe weekend! It could rain here, but it's just cloudy now! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • I just love uncle C! He does the best trips ever, especially when they include stopping for grub! :)

    Oh Franny girl, one bite of crust won't harm you! Live a little! :)

    I see the pizza shop delivers. Wonder how long it would take to get to NH! :)

    Still hot and humid here.

    Have a wonderful weekend to all.

  • ..I like pizza, too,...you doggies are so lucky to cruise around with Uncle Carlos and Laura..it would be fun for all of us to pack into the car and go shopping and have lunch..can you imagine the looks we would get..we would have to have a personal license plate that said glue squad..we could all act naughty together...James is installed the new washer and dryer...he says he and Lucinda are old gomers and this new high tech washer may be smarter than all of us..good part..it uses very little water and this old farm house is on a well..I must take a snooze ..will check back later..everybody have a great week-end!...over and out, Cora-Belle

  • Any day is a good day for pizza I say! What a fun trip you both had with Uncle Carlos and Laura Acuna. I hope everyone gets the weather that they want this weekend so they can have tons of fun, have a great one everyone! :smile:

  • I am not surprised that you didn't eat any of the pizza, Raven baby. I like to try different things too, sometimes, but I will turn things down once in a while-- it keeps the two leggies on their toes! Mom and Dad often give us little teeny bites of safe things that they are eating to help us feel part of their world. My sister Demi is particularly fond of toast and anything that might resemble toast-- like pizza crust! Mom says the best pizza in all of mankind is in St. Louis and it is called Imo's.

  • Well Franny and Sharkey, it's best you don't eat that topping, even a little bit might make you sick...but a little bit of crust can't hurt you except for wanting more ;-)

    Wow, Uncle Carlos sandwiched two pieces of Pizza together, he must have been hungry :-)
