We've been eating a lot of corn this summer... it's just SO good! Corn bread, corn chowder, corn in salads, corn on the cob, and on and on! And it's not just Musty and I who've been enjoying it.
Our cat Yummers is CRAZY for corn. As soon as the corn is out of the fridge, he is in the kitchen meowing up a storm, begging for corn. Raw or cooked, he is crazy for the stuff. So, after we've had our corn, we often give him a few kernels, or sometimes the whole cob to enjoy.
Well, Stevie Wonder loves it too! Stevie always takes her big treats into the backyard, where she can guard the goods from the other dogs. One night, I gave her a cob, and a few seconds later we heard "thump. thump... thump..." Turns out the cob was too wide to fit through her doggie door! So we had to open the door for her. This spot in the back yard is where she hoards all the toys and doesn't let any other doggies come near them.
Dottie Bonkers is always very dignified with her food. Lady like and proper. None of this doggish snarfing of human food, just because it's human food. No, not for Dottie B. She needs to sniff it, make sure she approves, and then slowly proceed with the eating process. She is a great combo of goofy and elegant.
The only family member who isn't crazy about corn is Snoopy. He gets very excited when the corn cobs are being handed out, because of the general atmosphere of glee... but he always rejects the corn immediately. I couldn't leave him out though, so here's a picture anyway. He's cute!
