Oh the temptation!!!

So today I was sitting on the couch not really doing much of anything and I witnessed something so astonishing, so eye-popping, so sad yet glorious at the same time I had to share haha. So, today Erin was eating some Campbell's Chunky potato and beef soup - well it had some mushrooms in it. Erin doesn't eat mushrooms - she hates them. So, she used my plate which previously had a hot dog on it to put her mushrooms when they came up. Well - these gravy covered mushrooms were just a bit too much for Bob - he kept coming over and air sniffing and running away when told to leave it. Well after a while when we thought he was over it he came and rested his head on the couch - his knose about half a foot away from the mushroom plate, and just sat there and sat there and sat there..... maybe he thought if he stared at it long enough he could have it... It was pretty pathetic needless to say. Well after some time of sitting and staring I guess he lost interest and just gave up. Just walked away and never came back... I have to admit it made me happy - he could have easily gotten those mushrooms with the gravy that smelled so good but never did - just sat and watched. Safe to say someone is growing up ;)

Bob laying on the floor with his head in between his paws. He is looking up slightly and to his right so you can see the lower border of white around his eyes. He looks like he is thinking about something
"Man I really wish I could have tasted those mushrooms!"

Yayyyy Bob! That IS exciting. Alfie has not given up sniffing and looking pathetic yet. :-( Despite NEVER getting people food EVER...sigh. Oh well, maybe he'll learn from Bob's example! :-D

Yeaaah Bob! Pompei still is i the sniff and stare stage. He's not about to let the food walk off on its own. Cause we all know I stave him and he needs to find food whereever he can get it

Go Bob! There are people who don't have that much will power. I'm sure some of the praise goes to his consistent, committed teacher too.

Looks like all the work is paying off. I hope Egypt still has her manners and isn't trying to grab food off the ground.

Oh no - Egypt's manners are soooo good, she has only picked up a forbidden item once but in her defense it looked like a chunk off of these bones that we get them... She's pretty much perfect ya'll did great :)
