There goes my profit for the day...

Sunday, August 9, 2009

At my booth at the Farmer's Market I always offer free samples because it's great to see how much the dogs enjoy all my hard work in the kitchen....OK, OK, so it doesn't suck that the their cute antics usually result in a sale, either. Either way, it's always fun to watch. Occasionally there's an uber-exuberant pup that takes "free samples" to another level.

Yesterday, a few minutes before the Market closed, this gorgeous guy was walking by with his owners. I had just opened my mouth to ask if he could have a sample when his curiosity took over...

One sniff of the Peanut Buddier treats & the hoovering began....

By the time I grabbed the camera, turned it on & remembered to rip off the lens cap (Thank you, God [which is dog backwards, you know] for fresh batteries loaded earlier in the day) he'd gone through about a half a dozen treats...I started snapping pictures and...

...he kept hoovering

Going...
Going...

GONE!















It was hilarious to watch - even through the camera's view finder. And it was a great to end the day with everyone grinning- even if his (unapologetic) owners didn't buy any dog treats. (Yikes-did that sound mercenary? Hey, this isn't a hobby and gorgeous guy ate about $7 worth of treats ) Maybe they realized- as I did that it really was a great photo op & would have cost me a fortune to have it professionally staged. Reward enough for me. Thanks, gorgeous guy.
