The other day I was minding my own business (which is begging every time my mistress is eating anything) when I got into real trouble and learned a valuable lesson which I would now like to pass on to any other dog who might be interested.
My mistress was eating a liverworst sandwich (which made my mouth water from the smell of it) and she would give me small bites now and then. I was waiting patiently expecting the next small bite when she pulled something out of her mouth and held it in the air. Of course I am thinking this is meant for me so I sat up and took it out of her hand. Boy, was that the wrong thing to do!
She jumps up out of her chair and yells at me. “No, Bad Dog!!” It had already occurred to me that what I had in my mouth was much harder than liverworst. Being an obediant dog, I immediately dropped it. As it turned out what I had grabbed was her removable teeth (Who would have ever thought that teeth could be removable) unlike mine, which don’t come out. Thankfully I had not chomped down on them like I normally would or I may not be here to write this down.
So the lesson is: Be careful what you take from your owners hand. It may be their removable teeth. Do all people have removable teeth? I don’t know, just be careful.
