I Mourn for the Muffins

Hello, puppers!
Do you see those pictures up there? Well, I hope so....let me tell you a story. When I was just a wee little pup my family and I lived in a different house. One day the humans did something totally innocent-they left a loaf of bread on the counter. Fine, right? I mean, where else does it go? Well, I was the type of dog that just happened to...lets say LOVE bread. So I helped myself to the loaf-potato bread, I believe....those were the days...before wheat bread. ANYWAY, I put my paws on the counter, took out two slices of bread (I didn't want to be too greedy), and took them into our living room to eat. My brother was on the computer, playing games, and he saw me....well, I got in trouble. Since then, whenever my family leaves the house, they put all the good stuff in the cupboard! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT! It's so mean! First they eat some bread-toasting it to the perfect temperature and toasty-ness, smothering it in butter and jam, or eggs...teasing me by eating it before my eyes. And then I don't get any and they hide it! Do you see the STUFF in that basket? English muffins, potato bread(which is used STRICTLY for french toast), gummy bears....and you see that last picture? THAT is how I WOULD look if they'd let me have an 'all you can eat human food buffet day'...but instead I mourn over the loss of eating muffins...if any of you dogs could teach me how to open that cupboard door, that'd be great.
Well, I have to go...nothing much else to say, so....bye!

**By the way, I have to apologize for the bad quality of the first 2 pictures. (the second was taken by my awesome human mom...figures, her's is fine) My main photographer was slacking that day, and didn't bother to notice a smudge on the camera lense. Sorry!**

You are too funny!
Abby, you should know that bread is not good for dogs! Please don't act like we let you starve!! You get your nice, natural dog food with 2 spoons of wet food!! And don't forget all your treats!
We love you, Abby.

Poor Abby :( Once I found Candy (our old dog) with her paws on the table, sniffing for food. She got in BIG BIG BIG trouble. She would've sypathized with you. :(

LOL! Tumbleweed has stolen a few bread slices in her days too - she like to sneak stuff off the counter - I have to hide stuff int he microwave when I leave the house. :)

It is totally not fair! We think you should go on strike till things go back to the way they were... Do NOT protect the house, do NOT let the hoomans get cuddles from you, mostly of all, do NOT clean them up with licks. Let them take care of these things on their own. They will see just how much they need you and they will put those things back in your reach!
Whoofs & Baroos,
