Suka Sneaking Snacks

Everything that happens happens as it should, and if you observe carefully, you will find this to be so.

~~ Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 161-180 AD and the last of the “Five Good Emperors," and is also considered one of the most important Stoic Philosophers, 121 AD – 180 AD

That is true wisdom, to know how to alter one's mind when occasion demands it.

~~ Terence (Publius Terentius Afer), Playrwright of the Roman Republic, 185 BC – 159 BC

Now that the weather is warm my human, K, is letting Porgy eat his dinner on the deck. And, it is always a plate of human food! She has no idea how hard that is on me. Will power can only carry me so far.

Hey Porgy! How's it going? So...what are you having for dinner tonight?

Mmmmmm...that sounds so good.

Porgy! Look over there! An owl!

Jacopo Robusti Tintoretto, Saint George and the Dragon, circa 1555-1558 (National Gallery, London, England)

Back to me...

Lip smacking good!

What? I've been napping here all day, just minding my own business. I don't know what happened to Porgy's dinner.

My covert tactics never fail me. "Stealthy Suka sneaking snacks." Try woofing that seven times! If 007 ever needs replacing, I'm your dog! "Bond. James SUKA Bond." I'm just sayin'...

What a pretty bird!! Just lovely.... Our neighbors down the cul-de-sac own twain green birds. Sometimes, when I am walking Rose, they sing and talk to us!! ;op
Thank-you for commenting on my Blog!! I truly appreciated it!! ;)
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

Finn said...

Oh Suka! I am surprised you didn't chase the bird itself! Not just go after the dinner! Happy Monday Bond.

How unfair, that a BIRD gets human food. After all, us dogs are mammals, so much more similar!

Suka, we didn't even know you had a Porgy. How cool is that! And Porgy gets to be off leash outside??? Sheesh, no fair. AND human food. We wouldn't blame you one bit if you stealthily snuck some of that snack.

Hey Suka! It's so great to see you. I have been wondering where you were. I bet Porgy really enjoyed the fresh air. Looks like you guys have a great deck to share and enjoy the warm breezes!

Your pal, Pip

Suka said...

hey Tiger and Mom Cynthia,

Just wanted to say "hi" and thanks for always leaving such nice comments! I really appreciate them!

Did they ever put in a new dog park by the High Bridge? I am not very familiar with St. Paul. I only went there a few times but I heard that there was a real cool dog park along the river (if I remember correctly).

Hope all is well and thank you for your continued friendship!

Suka and K

Peggy Frezon said...

So fun to see Suka with Porgy! Heck, you can't blame a dude for trying. hehe. Does Porgy ever sneak the dog treats?

Kirsten (peacefuldog) said...

OMG, that is just about the cutest thing! I adore pretty parrots. And I bet Porgy adores his people food!

Oskar said...

No dog should be tested that way!

Nubbin wiggles,

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Seems like you will have to eat an awful lot of Porgy meals to fill up, my friend...even as a snack! That tiny bird cannot have much on his plate. But human food...a treat indeed, although we can't complain we are pretty spoiled in that regard!

FiveSibesMom said...

Ohhhh....we love James SUKA Bond! Yes, we can see the trilogy now! Some very stealth moves there, Suka! And such a cutie pie! Husky hugs!

Thanks for your kind thoughts about Smokie too. We truly appreciate it. And we miss her so.

Duendes said...

Hi my friend,
I laughed a lot with your story today ....actually its human causes a severe test for you is possible by not resist ... you would be a great replacement for the 007...with her beauty and talent you would be an awesome actor ...I think Brad Pitt should worry!!

Porgy is wonderful

Remington said...

That is awesome!

Deborah said...

Thank you for visiting me today. Ariel was such a good girl. I really miss her.
You have a great blog. This was a cute story and 007 would be honored!!

Tanner and Beth said...

Well played, dear chap! And you didn't even knock over the plate.

Doggy Kisses,


Hey there Suka...
You're a dog after my own heart. I, too, sample all the bowls of the inhabitants of this house. BUT...birds? Well, we retrieve them.
Love your pretty pictures too.
Have a pawsome weekend and send my love to your 'K'.
ps. Maxmom says thank you for your entry to the 'Maxdog give-away'. :)

haopee said...

Seriously?!? You stole Porgy's food?!? That's just... downright... devious.

By the way Suka, I'd like to ask you a favor. Can I make you a header? I don't have your email so I couldn't send you a private message. Anyway, if you do, please email me at haopee@gmail.com and attach some of your pretty pictures that I can select from.

P.S. I love the full moon and me picture.

Huggies and Cheese,


Chicco said...

Aahhah! I want to see you Suka on the next film of James Bond, you deserve it!!!!
