The new Apprentice

Kali has been here for 1½ years now. The peeps say that we’re keeping her. There are a couple of things missing for Kali and they’ve started to correct that.

First, Kyla and Kenzie had their own food bowls that were unmistakably theirs. Then Kaci came and got one with a ceremony


Today, Kaci presented Kali with her very own dish and declared that Kali was the new Apprentice Mooch Pooch. Of course Kaci bestowed the vacant title of Master Mooch Pooch on herself.

OK, Kaci. I’ve been stuck with this plain generic seed and pellet cup for years and it doesn’t even say “Kismet” on it. What do you plan on doing about it?


She told me that she wouldn’t do anything until I ate better kibble. SQUAAAAAWK.

About Kismet

  1. Well glad you got something with your name on it. I got a dish that belonged to her first Scot ~ he lived to be 16 ~ then the next Scot had it who lived to be 13 and now I have owned the bowl for six years. I own the second Scot leash never got my own. Why I think hand-me-downs are great. You don’t ever have to break anything in.
    Well the Reds lost again! Your team is beating the crap out of us. Everybody is beating the crap out of us.

  2. Discrimination…….you should have SOMETHING with your name on it!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  3. We’re deprived here. We only have PLASTIC bowls and Dui has inherited Daisy’s bowl. SHE says as we only use them for about 30 seconds a day, we don’t need anything fancy. Love your bowls….and the Mooch Pooch moniker.

    • You’re deprived?? Did you see that excuse for a food dish? My water bowl is exactly like that food dish. There must have been a “Buy one Get one sale” at the thrift shop.

  4. I think those food bowls are just darling!

  5. We love those bowls. I don’t know if they would work in this house. We seem to do competition eating when we are not separated at meal time. It ids every man or woman to themselves.

  6. So cool. I don’t have my own bowl because I think everyone’s bowl is mine. Max has to eat outside because I want his food too. I have to go in the crate when the people eat, because I want their food too. I act like I’m starving. I think I am starving.

  7. Good lookin bowl Kali! All dis kibble talk are makin me hungry . . .

  8. that’s like getting your passport, right? my mom awwed and ohhhed and she said she want’s a bowl with my name too…. yes, that makes sense when I’m the only dog in my crib :o) btw: Kismet, I want your bird food, it’s tasty and I can’t wait till my mom brings the bird feeder in my backyard :o)

    • It’s more like getting your membership card to the club. You really need a personalized dish. Especially you because even though you’re an only dog, your Mom won’t get confused.

  9. We agree ya should have yer name on a bowl too, Kismet!! Hey, how is Kaci feeling? We hope the medicines worked finally, an she is happy and well.

    • I’ll put another mark down with the other good guys. Kaci’s first meds didn’t work and her new ones show some improvement but not a complete recovery. When they run out, we’ll try another one-that’s the vet’s plan.

      • Gosh, we hope the current meds work. Guess the dogtor has ruled out bladder stones, huh? Keep us posted-sending POTP for Kaci!

  10. I think Kismet should have a personalized bowl too. I’m just saying,

    Have a terrific day. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥

  11. Those are great and very cool bowls — We don’t have anything like that here, but I’m sure there are a couple that think we should!

    • You shouldn’t worry about about stuff like that. Both Kaci and Kali (and RIP Kyla) are rescues on death’s row. Keep on doin’ what you’ve been doin’ and we love your for it. Todd-knock some sense into that place-prioritize.

  12. Geez. I don’t have my name on anything. Methinks that needs to change. ARrOOOOO!

  13. Hmm you need to speak to the peeps about you bowl Kismet,xx Speedy

  14. You’re like a second class citizen over there, Kismet. Maybe you should think about migrating… #justsaying 😛
