The Apprentice

Kaci is a pretty good eater. She’s also learning English like “treat” and “dinner”. Her begging shows good technique. She also wants the title of “Master Mooch Pooch”  that I have. I tried to show her:

Notice that I’m all in (the bowl). I’ve finished the food and I’m applying the “Master Touch”, licking off the sniffs. Kaci, however, makes beginner mistakes

Not only are the sniffs intact, but there’s a piece of solid kibble left behind. That’s like falling down on your butt in a figure skating competition. Her scores for technical merit are really poor-I’ll have to show her the correct way by making her dish competition perfect.

When she starts improving, I’ll make her my apprentice Mooch Pooch and will award her a personalized bowl like mine.

  1. I’m sure she will soon make it to being your apprentice..enjoy the odd bit she leaves whilst you can.:) xx00xx

  2. Oh Kyla you have your paws full, Kaci has so much to learn. You look so sweet sitting there.
    Thanks for being a friend

  3. That was a terrible mistake….wouldn’t happen around here. She’s lucky you’re there to keep her on the right track.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We like your bowl.

  4. First things first. That’s a nice coat you’ve got there in that first picture. Nice brindling going on. Nice hairdo, too. But, why wouldn’t it be? You’re getting ready for the end of the world.

    OK. Back to the mooch pooch.

    Boy. Is she lucky to have you to show her. That kibble would be gone in the blink of an eye at my house. (And I don’t have anybody who’d steal it from me.)

    Go figure.

    Arooo. Stu

  5. See you came around quickly to take Kaci under your leg (wing) and teach the proper methods to being a pooch, semi-mooch pooch!

  6. You’re a pro Kyla and so funny too! Kaci will learn from the very best.

  7. PUPS!! So much to learn. Keep working with her.

  8. Dear Kyla – You won’t believe this but Mr. K actually still leaves a kibble or two behind and Heather comes behind him to snatch it up nearly every night! Guess he didn’t have an older sibling like you to teach him how to “do right” before we rescued him. Something tells me Heather certainly isn’t going to teach him, either, seeing how that would mean she’d be missing out on some extras! Much love, The Scottie Mom.

  9. You show her whos still the Boss, Kyla!
    Your furbuddies,
    Joules & Prescott

  10. […] Mooch Pooch.  Of course she would have a way to go to be a Master Mooch Pooch. As I promised (see here), she’s earned a bowl of her own. What better day to give it to her in a presentation […]
