My California dog has become a New Yorker

I have a very fussy dog when it comes to eating. This is such a bizarre thing to me. My past dog was not finicky as he ate everything and very quickly at it. He would remind me of medical residents at a free luncheon. Although, my past dog did have some favorites such as apple pie. Dogs and pie! An odd combination.

My current dog is picky. I have noted previously that he treats me as his taste-tester. Such an odd bit we have going. I am used to it now. I don’t know whether the differences between my two dogs is due in part to one being a New Yorker (non-picky) and the other being a Californian (finicky).

My finicky dog hardly ever even shows interest when I am eating. Thus, I was quite taken back when today he rushed to my side when I started eating a bagel with cream cheese. He was alert, attentive, and actively interested. He stood in front of me and stared and stared. I tilted my head and asked him what was going on. He didn’t answer me. I cut off a piece of the bagel and was about to taste-test it for him when he leapt for the bagel. Whoa. This was completely unlike him. He ate the bagel without me even tasting it for him. I was flabbergasted, surprised, and thrilled.

My California dog was now a New Yorker. He loves bagels and I couldn’t be happier. Now, if I could get him to like riding in elevators.
