What 4:20 Sounds Like on the Bayou

Bentley and Pierre eat dinner at 4:30 each afternoon. This is not up for debate as far as they are concerned. Their Dr. Harvey’s base mix takes 10 minutes from the time I start the water heating in the microwave. That means at 4:20 this happens on the bayou. Every. Single. Day.
 Please make sure your volume is turned up.

Notice how Pierre lets Bentley do all the “hounding” but perks up when I ask if they are hungry. Bentley lets me know by smacking his lips in addition to his academy-award winning starvation scene.
Victory and Dr. Harvey’s tastes so good!

  1. our time is 4:30 too ;O))) it's to avoid the 5pm madness, whats common in the most dogs according to a dog whisperer... the last 30 minutes are a nightmare, I often think their last meal was two months ago...

  2. We get our meals at all different times, so we don't have a real feeding routine. Mom likes to keep it mixed up. Hope you boys don't starve to death waiting.

  3. OM my word above what a pathetic moan from Bentley....I think it is coming from way down at the tip of this tail....Pierre is smart to conserve what little energy he has.
    Too funny

  4. OMD, Bentley. What a pathetic song! I get to eat just after 3pm but I still let mom know around 2 that "it's time" by giving her the stare down and standing in front of the frig.

  5. We call Angel our 'pointer', since she walks over to the bowl, and points at it with her head and eyes!

  6. Bentley, that was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time!! LOL!!!

  7. Poor baby! You must be starving here. 😂

  8. Bwahaha! LOVE, love, love the academy-award winning starvation scene. Way to funny.

  9. Appaws, Bentley, appaws ! You play the starving dog purrfectly ! Purrs

  10. Misty and Timber get wild and crazy right around dinner time. Lightning follows Mom everywhere. But then once Mom starts preparing the bowls, Misty and Timber sit quietly and wait, and Lightning howls and howls for her to hurry up:)

  11. Bentley, we need you at our house to do a little hounding at dinner time. Maybe we'd get fed faster.

  12. I keep kibbles in their bowls at all times. It prevents those starvation scenes.

  13. BOL!

  14. I didn't dare watch this with Luke right next to me. But I will come back later and do so, because I can imagine how fun it will be! Luke usually eats between 4 and 4:30 and Sam gets fed first. He's pretty patient, but he gives me subtle reminders by sticking close to my side around that time. But once Sam is fed, all bets are off, and he's jumping around making sure I don't forget it's his turn!

  15. BOL!!!! Oh my gawd, that is quite a performance Bentley! There is no chance mama will dare be late giving you your supper with that drama going on - you really do know how to charm your way into a great meal, don't you?!

  16. Hazel starts barking at us about 1/2 before dinner time. When we finally head to the kitchen she barks AND dances in circles. Mabel will hop and give me kisses!

  17. My late colleague, Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel, Doggie Chief Inspector, comestibles division, would be very impressed with your food watching technique, Bentley. Good show!


I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
