I can’t believe he ate the whole thing!!!!

Our Jackson is a foodie.  He is driven by food.  It seems it’s all he thinks about.  We’ve had a heck of a time to put Arthur’s (our cat) food somewhere in the rig where Arthur can get it and Jackie can’t.  Jack has eaten so much cat food while we’ve been in the rig, it’s just ridiculous.  We finally have it beat, at least most of the time.  I brought one of those child gates and use that.  Arthur’s food is kept on the floor on the passengers side, where my feet would go when we are on the road.  I put the gate across the doghouse at the front of the rig, Arthur can squeeze by, Jackie can’t.

Although…………yesterday that little bugger manager to get by it.  My fault, he hates that gate and usually avoids it like the plague, but I guess yesterday the call of the cat food was just too much.  He cleaned poor Arthur out.  I had just leaned it instead of making sure the gate was secure.
Jack’s barrier before being installed.

Today, we had a quick run to Walmart, were gone maybe an hour and a half.  We keep, at the front door, a container of treats, they’ll call PupCorn.  They are little puffs of either peanut butter, or cheese flavoured healthy treats for dogs.  Look like Cheetos.  All the dogs love them.  When we left for Walmart it was full, when we came home, this is what was left.  I believe he accidently knocked it over, he waits at the door for us, and as luck would have it, the lid came off.  It had fallen into the stair well and I guess that’s when the lid fell off.  He probably thought he’d died and gone to heaven except of course now he’s paying the price for being a pig.  The fact that he didn’t finish them off tells me just how full he was.
I put a wine glass (and it’s a fairly large glass) beside it so you can see the size of the container.  That was full to the top before we left and as you can see it’s just up to the bottom of the label. 
He was in dire straights when we got home to get to the doggie potty, gee I wonder why????  And he has been a real slouch since then.  I had to give him a Pepto Bismol as I knew he had an upset tummy.  I bet he’ll have to go out in the middle of the night to get rid of some of the PupCorn!!!!
Unfortunately, dogs don’t learn by their mistakes.  I know if he had a chance again he’d do it again.  He is such an oinker.

Until later…take care.


  1. Funny, He might be a food pain, but thing of all the joy he brings:)

  2. Poor dog. He's going to be feeling that for a while.

  3. poor Jackson!..our Tucker is not that food focused thank goodness..although when he was younger he too spent a fair bit of time eating the kitty to be a bit expensive! the cat food is on the bathroom counter where the big golden boy can't get at it!!

  4. Poor guy! Dogs just don't put 2+2 together, but then again sometimes I don't either... that second piece of cake, or extra glass of wine...

  5. Poor Jack.....I know how he feels though. I ate 2 too many pieces of pizza last night. Gay
