How to ensure that you get good food all the time.


This post is not suitable for underage and immature doggies.


I, Snowball, shall not hold any responsibility if this method do not work well for you and your human decide that you are a bad doggie and decide to abandon you or worse to put you through any rehabilitation training.

This method works well for doggies who know how to handle the tension of the string that holds to their human's heart to perfection. (It just happens that I am an expert in that field and my human can never resist giving in to me. (-_-))

So, you do not believe? Let me tell you, I had roast duck on Saturday, roast chicken on Sunday and lamb chop today.

Slurp Slurp look at the piece of juicy lamb chop that was prepared specially for me. It look super yummy yummy right?

Rule #1 : Never let your human know that you are craving for whatever yummy food that is served to you.

So when the human announce that dine dine is ready, just stand from a distant and look cute.

Rule #2 : Only go near your food bowl after your human have invited you to eat for at least 3 times.

Rule # 3 : Never gobble down your food at once. Try to display some disinterest in the food. Look at how I am pushing it away.

First with the right side of your muzzle.

Then with the left side of your muzzle.

By this time, you can be expected to be scolded but don't worry. Just give them a cute look and act innocent.

Rule #4 : Never start eating on your own. (be persistence and stick to this rule strictly even if you have to go on hunger strike.) Eventually, your human will think that you aren't feeling well and will try to lure you to eat by offering the food to you by hand.

At this moment, you should turn your head sideways, upward, downward, any directions so long as it is away from the food.

By this time, you can be expected to see your human either become very worried or irritated.

Rule #5 : Don't push your luck too hard. Start eating but do it slowly, bit by bit, piece by piece and never show them that you are really enjoying the food.

If you want to train your human to hand feed you from now on, never eat from the bowl yourself. Always wait for your human to feed them to you by hand.

Rule #6 : The final golden rule to ALWAYS leave some remains. NEVER finish everything in the bowl.

The more food you left behind will make your human think that you do not like the food. They will crack their brain trying on new and tastier food for you.

Health tips : Drink lots of water but not too much.

Love ya lots,

Peanut said...

Oh I love your dish but that wouldn't work with my mom she would just not feed me that meal and make me wait for the next one. But she just told me you can't really do that with little doggies so you are luckier then me.

Those are very good tips Snowball, I just don't know how you keep your cool and not gobble up the food right away...this is my whole problem, I inhale my food and mom thinks that I love it so much she keeps feeding it to me again and again and again...a little variety here would be good!

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Oh you are smart......Hmmm...I just cant do it. I love food, I will straight away run to it when my mom said wonder mom not trying new recipe.....

By the way, can you give more clue snowball, me & mom getting crazy with your contest.

Boo said...

ah snowball, be careful of the method. don't over react or you'll end up like me! guess what happened to me last year when I keep refusing to eat my food? mom starved me for 3 friggin days! believe that or not? 3 friiiiiiiiggin days. dad was saying "poor boo, can't he eats treats?" ha! mom was really strict and said NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

maybe your hooman will not be so strict to you. furthermore, with your cute smile, who can resist you?
