Dog Thanked For Finishing Vegetable Dinner
Little Rock, AR - Achilles, a Black Lab, was thanked profusely for finishing the rest of 14 year old Greg Baranowski’s vegetables at dinner time, sources confirmed.
“I felt surrounded by antioxidants and I don’t even know what an oxidant is,” Baranowski blurted. “I’m just lucky Achilles had my back. I don’t think I could have taken anymore of that asparagus.”
Greg moving the vegetables around the plate without actually eating any for about three minutes straight was the signal Achilles was waiting for to pounce. The mission was accomplished in 12.3 seconds.
“It’s a mutually beneficial relationship,” Achilles commented. “He doesn’t want to eat the veggies, and I love them. Well, I don’t love them, but I endure them. I’m not picky. I’ll eat anything you give me. Literally anything.”
After dinner, Achilles was awarded 2 pats on the head and a neck scratch, though disappointingly, no belly rubs.
“Perhaps the mission was not accomplished as flawlessly as it should have been,” Achilles mused. “I’m just happy to serve my home table. Next time I will work faster and with greater stealth though.”
