Viva la orange,
It is difficult to sneak anything around here no matter how hard I try! I'm calling this the "Cantaloupe Caper" because I got real creative yesterday at breakfast. (Don't I look innocent?!)
Grandma, Mom and Dad were enjoying their breakfast on the veranda and I wandered off to check out a good smell coming from the kitchen. As I walked into the kitchen, there sitting on the counter - just screaming at me - was a quarter of a cantaloupe.
Now, any dog in his right mind would be licking their chops. I not only licked my chops, I grabbed that nice chunk of loveliness and consumed it. No more evidence! I'm free! I got away with the BIG one!
Then Mom comes into the kitchen a few minutes later and says, "Grandma, did you grab the cantaloupe that I had for you?" She said, "No!" Claudia looked all over the place, in the refrigerator, everywhere, wondering what happened to it.
Grandma came in the kitchen in her bare feet and felt a wet rug. "Uh Oh!" she said, "I think I know what happened to the cantaloupe!"
This she said as I was licking my lips while standing sheepishly in the corner.
"Zane must have grabbed it and ate it,"
"Richard, Zane ate the cantaloupe. Do you think this will be as bad as the dog that ate the grapes?!" Mom said, VERY worried. A speedy trip to the Vet was on her mind to - YIKES! - to pump my stomach!
"I don't know, but I will call GDB and find out."
The Vet told him that it was not, but to give me more kibble to help digest it.
So, the moral to this story is: "When you eat a melon, you may start jell-in, and there ain't no tell-in, with even the good smell-in, you get an extra meal-in the middle of the day."
Woo! Hoo! I got extra food.
Now, the bad news! I threw up the rind in the middle of the night.
Yuck! So much for the cantaloupe caper.
Lots of Big Licks and Melon juice,
