Tools of the Trade

When a hustler enters the pool hall, does he use a pool hall cue stick? When a Major League hitter enters the batting box. does he take any old bat that was around? No siree, all the greats have their own custom equipment. I’m in training for next July 4 for the competitive eating contest at Coney Island in NYC. Yes, it is going to be a year long regimen and when I go to “the show”, I need my customized equipment. See my personalized eating bowl

Kenzie has a bowl also but he’s not a competitive eater and doesn’t need the pro model. Once They had to spend most of the day away from home in a place that didn’t allow dogs. They got the next door neighbor to feed us and prepared it ahead of time. The neighbor was told to give me MY dinner and for Kenzie to get HIS. “But how will I know the difference?” She said. “Trust us,, you’ll know, even a lizard could tell“. The neighbor figured it out although I wanted both plates of food.

She was able to figure it out.

Why all the discussion about plates? This morning Kenzie rejoined the “Clean Plate Club” – the one your mother told you about when you were just a young pup. YIPPEEE! We also won’t have to make him feel guilty by mentioning all the starving Shih Tzus in China.

You Know Bites HGE problem, well it took him almost two weeks to eat much, now the pig is on the hunt, always at moms feet while dinner is being fixed and if dad has something, there is is in the chair staring at the food. So, maybe Kenzie is coming around!!!

  9. We love that picture of you sitting, so prettily by your bowl, no doubt just willing food to appear in it. And we love the bowl too! Fortunately we’ve been members of the Clean Plate Club forever, especially when 5 of us ruled the house, you just couldn’t afford to hang around savouring the food as some doggie would come and try to finish your dinner for you. Glad to hear that Kenzie keeps making an appearance in the “clean plate club”.
