While Mum’s away…..

So, I decided, while Mum’s away I’m gonna tell you what happened last week – you won’t believe it – I couldn’t believe it!!

No Dinner for Snoopy!!  Yep, you read that correctly……

Mum’s very fussy about my food, she says I have a delicate stomach (I think that sounds way too girlie)

Anyway, she says it’s a big deal if I change the type of food I eat…..

Therefore, I’m wondering why she left it until the last minute to go and get me some more of my kibble?

She never imagined the store would be out of stock!!  Huh?

What’s Snoopy going to eat?  Yeah, good question Mum….

Ooooh – this looks way better than kibble…..


Mum thought I was funny as I picked out the Carrots and ate them before the meat - I love Carrots!!


This is good - I hope it lasts…..


Sadly, it only lasted a day and then the kibble magically appeared – I’m hoping Mum forgets again though, as I really liked her plan B!!  Yum Yum :)

I wonder if anyone else’s Mum ever runs out of Dog Food? :)

    wow .. good doggy food…. i hope my dogs are going to love it …

    Thanks for sharing it……

  2. Those carrots look yummy! …or at least like fun cat toys. ; )
    So I have a question, Snoopy…Why are your eating your foods out of a stainless steel hat?

    • Hey Katie,

      You’re a funny Kittie – I guess it does look like a hat! :)

      So, here’ the story, one of Mum’s previous Doggies used to be a super fast eater, so when she was getting a bowl for me as a puppy she saw this ‘slow feeder’ bowl and decided she’d get it in case I tried to eat too fast – it’s kind of like a game, you have to move all around the bowl to get your food :)

      Hope you’re having fun,

      Snoops :)

  3. Looks like you had a real yummy substitute dinner!!

    • Hi Bassetmomma,

      I was a bit shocked at first and very suspicious, but once I tasted it there was no stopping me!! Yum Yum :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  4. Sampson and Delilah get raw food, last night I forgot to take it out of the freezer and didn’t have time to defrost it, so I popped over to the store and picked up some ground beef.

    They didn’t complain either! :-)

  5. Snoopy that looked delicious!

    My Mom has never run out of dog food but it isn’t out of the realm of possibility!

    she often makes sirloin or piedmontese burgers (lower fat meat) and gives me one for dinner with carrots as well!!! I LOVE when she does that!

    Hey my Mom LOVES YOUR BOWL….where did you pawchase that? I eat too fast and that might be a great solution!

    Have a great weekend pal!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hey Dakota,

      What’s with the burgers? I don’t get any of them – hmmmm, I think I’m being deprived!!

      The bowl was from the local pet store, it’s called a slow feeder bowl, I’ve had it since I was a puppy, when you turn it up the other way you can drink out of it, which is great on camping trips :)

      Have a great weekend too :)

      Snoops :)

  6. Oooo Snoopy, you’re so lucky! That did happen with us once too – Mom ran out of kibble and I got a dinner of cooked egg and rice – I was SO happy! I have a very delicate tummy too – I can’t even handle chicken! But oh how I loved that special dinner – I wonder if I can distract Mom enough when my kibble is getting low so she’ll forget to get it again?!

  7. I agree, that does look better then kibble! My mom doesn’t run out, because she makes then freezes my food every 2 weeks

    • Hmmmm Nola,

      But your food looks super yummy anyway, I’m glad your Mum doesn’t run out!! :)

      Actually I like my normal kibble, but it was great to have a special treat a few times :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  8. Me and Bella and Sable LOVE carrots too. So do the rescue dogs that come stay with us! Mom even cuts them up into little pieces and uses them for training treats. We like that! So does Mom ‘cuz it doesn’t get her fingers all ‘gunky’ from giving us treats.

    Happy Eating!

    • Hi Hero,

      Yeah, my Mum does the cutting up the Carrots thing too, it makes it a lot of work to get much Carrot, but it’s sure worth it!!

      I also get Carrots stuck in my bone and then I have to get them out – I love that game!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  9. Wow Snoops that looks delicious – healthy with the carrots too. Perhaps hiding ALL the kibble in the district may mean you get this cuisine more often – that indeed would be big mischief!

    • Hi Helen,

      Yeah, who says healthy things can’t be yummy? Carrots are super yummy!! :)

      I love your idea to hide all the kibble in the district, great Mischief!! Tee Hee

      Snoops :)

  10. That looks great Snoopy! I love how you ate your carrots first!

    • Hey Alfie,

      Shocking as it sounds, yep it did!! Well, no kibble at least!! But that’s not a big problem when you get a yummy alternative!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  12. We LOVE carrots too, Mum gives us one everynight….just to keep us quite.
    We are on the RAW diet, so if Mum runs out of food and can’t get to the shop she will give us cereal and milk!

  13. Cali’s favorite “oops my mom forgot to buy food” meal is chicken and rice! Looks good Snoopy!!
    Julie recently posted..Wordless Wednesday #28My Profile

  14. LOL Snoops we have the food discussion on our house sometimes. One of the humans doesn’t always tell the other when our food is low. We have a great store nearby that has very good prices on our kibble; however, they go through pallets and pallets of food each week and sometimes they run out while waiting for the delivery truck to bring more. Waiting to the last minute can be an issue. Of course if we got the yummy food that you got when ours ran out, it would be fine with us!

    • Yeah Browndawgs,

      That’s exactly what happened with my food, apart from the lack of communication, Mum just assumed they’d have it as they always have before – let’s hope she doesn’t learn her lesson, hey? :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  15. No, that looks yummy! Maybe burying your kibble in the yard might help with getting you more yummy dinners such as that one? LOL

    Our mum ran out of veggies couple times, so we just got a “protein shake” instead, so we didn’t mind that at all. LOL
    Jana Rade recently posted..Jasmine’s Acute Lameness UpdateMy Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      Ooooh, a protein shake!! My Mum has those cos she doesn’t eat meat? She hasn’t given me one yet though, but from what you’re saying they sound yummy!! :)

      Snoops :)

  16. Lovely … your mom has nice plan B. That carrot looks tasty.

    My mom was also away for a week…she was at home but her mind was totally off ;)
    Kroten recently posted..Temporary Being AbandonedMy Profile

    • Hi Kroten,

      Believe me, Carrots are so super tasty, whenever Mum’s goes into the fridge box I magically appear and do my cute face so she gives me one – Tee Hee :)

      Snoops :)

  17. Bella’s always been fussy about eating her dinner and she tends to have a “sensitive stomach” as well so we’re pretty careful about not running out of her food. But yeah, there’s been a time or two we’ve missed.

    Because of her sensitive tummy though, she gets home-made rice and veggies with all her meals now. And in light of all the food recalls lately, I’m seriously considering taking her off all kibble and feeding 100% home-cooked. It’s supposed to help her with her “mental health” issues too.
    Leslie recently posted..Wordless Wednesday 38 – I’ll be watching you…My Profile

    • Hi Leslie,

      My Mum has considered home cooking my food a number of times, but is mainly concerned about getting the balance right, which is why I still get kibble….. I like the sound of Bella’s kibble supplement though – yum yum!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  18. Snoopy,

    We have to admit that looks yummy. Sometimes our humans run out of the usual kibble and give us rice and fish. They own human restaurants and bring home salmon and whitefish leftovers. Yum!
    The kibble always appears again. We hope your special dinner comes back!

    • Oooh fish?

      I wish my humans had a restaurant and brought home some yummy fish too – you’re super lucky!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  19. Hi! Well we don’t run out of dog food here as Mommy keeps the dog food she is feeding me in a huge container and then she gets another unopened back plus there is the canned stuff. But she does give me table scraps. And I likes carrots too, I generally eats them first. ~Fenris

    PS: We saw you were going to be the body guard for the Real Housecats, take good care of Scylla for me. She is a little hissy but just ignore it. I will be guarding Artemisia personally.

    • Hi Guys,

      Thanks for stopping by and letting me know about my new role, I got super excited when I heard, I will do as you suggest and try to ignore Scylla’s hissing!! :) I think it’s gonna be lots of fun :)

      You’re so lucky your Mum is so organized and doesn’t run out of food, though I did really like the alternative :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  20. I just can’t get into that raw veggie thing…even Toby tried to teach me. We could consider a swap–you can have my veggies and I’ll take any excess meat you don’t want.
    Sage recently posted..High WaterMy Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      Well, that’s a cool plan so long as they’re Carrots, as they’re my favorite!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  21. wow, snoopy, that sure looks yummy! your momma takes good care of you, even when she forgets your kibble. :-) i bet desmond wishes we would forget HIS kibble.
