Many of you may recognize this photo as Payton's Blogger profile pic. It was taken on a sunny day in St. Louis when Tim and I took our girl to The Boathouse in Forest Park for lunch by the water and then a romp in the fields by the Museum of Art. It would have been the perfect day for an ice cream cone. Like the time we made a special treat for Payton.
She was always a happy pug eating out with us...or eating in with us too...she wasn't picky. Here's a post showing P's normal spot during meal times, regardless of our location.
I can't recall too many times that she wasn't in the kitchen with me when I was messing around. She was the best sous chef I could ask for. And of course during clean up after eating, so would always do her part to make sure no crumbs were left behind in the dining room.
Payton was never to proud to beg. She would paw at us and bark trying to convince us to share. I know that she would have thought about sticking out her tongue at us when we didn't give her a nibble, just like in this post.
I think you will all agree with me that this video, and Payton's "focused" eyes, show just how much she loved food.
There's no doubt she had it good, but I do wish we had given in to her a bit more. She deserved it. :-)
