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?
1 Sharkey! That delicious smell of melted cheese is coming from in here! Let's get some lunch!
2 Oh boo, Sharkey! No dogs allowed in the restaurant! Such discrimination. Don't they know who we are?
3 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?
4 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!
5 Look, here comes Manny from Bambino's to bring Laura Acuna and Uncle Carlos their lunch!
6 Mmmm, Sharkey, it sure looks and smells good, but you know we can't eat that!
7 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!
8 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!
9 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!
10 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!
11 Francesca, since you're part of my pack, I'll share with you!
12 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!
