the tomato stealing pup

DSC_0087 DSC_0077 DSC_0086

Cole (4mo puppy of mysterious parental origins) & i went out to garden. Alabama is still summer & there are tomatoes. We are so SICK of tomatoes, but…Cole is not. My back was turned from him & i hear my husband say,

“Coles is eating your tomatoes”

See?!

1. i photographed my bounty.

2. i photographed the evidence of his thieving ways…we did get him out of jail (The Birmingham Humane Society is no jail, it is a wonderful place) perhaps he was placed there by a tomato farmer, who saw that his potential income would be considerably less if he were to keep this pup.

Lucky us…although, he will be, pardon the appropriate pun, “sick as a dog” today.

    I had a cat who went next door and “hunted” their tomatoes and squash and would bring the results of his hunting foray and lay at my feet. my neighbor was so good – she planted extra just for him. Cole has such incredible eyes.

      That is so funny! A vegetarian cat! Hobbes brings me moles. I love that your neighbor plants extra for him. I was told that you should plant enough fruit/veggies to share with nature. Although, i don’t think they were thinking of a cat. 🙂 Thank you for complimenting Cole! ~amy

    Our dog and cats all come from a rescue centre. It’s good to take a dog in and it looks like Cole found one of the better homes. He’s a fine looking chap.

      Thank you, Simon. all our animals came from shelters or rescues… Any guesses as to Coles parentage? He is four months old. The Humane society said he was a lab mix. ~amy

    Aw, oh dear, but how could you possibly be cross when he looks at you like that, hey? 🙂

      Oh, i didn’t get made, i just said his name & he stopped. I was afraid he was going to be sick all day, but he wasn’t! Which was a shock. Thank you, Reggie! ~amy

    My mother raised dogs for sometime. One found a dish of tomato sause left on a table. The dog had bloody stool and almost died, please ask the vet if this is is alright for the dog.

      Wow. That is terrible, Bonnie! I was worried he would be sick, but he was not. I suppose because he is still a puppy, he can consume strange things more so then a full grown dog. I’ve seen him eat paper, swallow paper napkins, fluff from his toys…they all come out at the end…of him. I try to catch him, but he is so quick! ~amy

    My little Pom loved tomatoes!! Your “puppy of mysterious parental origins” is really cute….I’m sure that helps him avoid “punishment!”

      The only punishment he would have received would have been an upset tummy. Luckily, the tomatoes didn’t bother him in the slightest! Funny that your dog likes tomatoes! ~amy
