Trapped

*My new laptop and I are becoming good friends. Thank you for your support. Barking from the Bayou Tip: Back up your work! Fortunately, I had mine backed up or this would have been tragic.
The Bayou Boys have their daddy trapped while they wait for chicken samples

Skipper boiled some chicken for the boys’ dinner and for our salad. Bentley and Pierre had him trapped until he gave up some samples! This is how they position themselves anytime he cooks.

  1. My dog, Misha, does the same thing when she knows it is dinner or snack time. You can never be too sure when a human might try to get out of snacks!

    1. They can hear a banana being peeled from the other side of the house but when it is time for serious cooking, they take these positions.

    1. Dad always gives us samples that is why we feel the need to trap him. BOL!

  4. You guys give him lots of room! I like to be closer so that mom has to keep stepping over me.

    1. We love to get under Mom's feet but we act like little angels when Dad cooks because it gets us more samples. LOL!

  5. Quite a few years ago, before the blogging empire began, Mom lost a lot of work stuff when her computer misbehaved. She subscribed to Carbonite and has ever since. No need to think about backing up, it just happens all the time and it gives us piece of mind. If something happens, the only things that might not be saved are the very last things we did, but usually they are already captured too. Hope you didn't lose too much.

    1. I'll have to check into Carbonite. Luckily, a friend of my son's is a tech wiz and had backed up my stuff when we began trying to fix the problem.

    1. They lay there and stare at him until the chicken is done and he always gives them samples. It is so funny and sweet.

  7. A little bit of herding dog in everydog, especially near the kitchen!

    1. They are definitely herders when they think there might be treats or food samples!

  8. They see to have some military training. Smart strategy,

    1. If you believe them, they are war dogs and have seen many battles. Of course, they have absolutely no military training but they like to tell tall tales!

  9. Oh yes, I learned my lesson years ago about backing the computer up! On my mac, I have Time Machine which automatically backs up every hour.

    My dogs do the same thing, their favorite is fresh carrots. As soon as they hear me getting the cutting board out, they come running :)

    1. Thanks for visiting! The boys LOVE mini carrots. We give them as treats too.

  10. Joey dog used to do that too! I'd rather ignore the cooking process, and then food watch from the side of table when the food is being served and eaten.

    1. Oh, they sit on either side of their Dad at the table! Bentley plays both sides of the table! LOL!

    1. He is the BEST at dropping samples for us. He will even blow off the pieces of chicken so we don't burn our mouths.

  19. Best to cover all entrances and exits. You two could go to work for the FBI. ...maybe after dinner.

    1. They have built-in timers and know when the 20 minutes is about to be up. It is uncanny! They do it with their 10 minute waiting period for their dinner too. LOL!

  22. BOL! Smart dogs! The Goldens will actually try and lay right by our feet so we nearly break our necks while trying to get dinner together. lol Hope they got a little nibble! :)

  27. BOL!!! OMD, that is FABulous!!!! Since our kitchen is super small, I need only to lay at the entrance (it's a galley style kitchen), and Ma can't escape! (she does often slip on the drool puddle though....)

    1. Mom has to mop with vinegar to scrub up my super strong drool! BOL! Your pal, Bentley

  28. Haha! They have him surrounded! "Give us the chicken, and no one will get hurt." BOL!

  29. That must be some yummy chicken to get Bentley to wait so patiently! My cats would never be that patient. I often have to close them into the bedroom when food is being cooked. They will steal it right out of the pan on the stove! Silly kitties.

  30. It's the universal dog rule that must not be broken. Lay in the way whenever anyone is in the kitchen. The rewards are just too tempting.
