Day 513: Kitchen Help

One of my favorite fings about this wonderful weekend is the yummy appetizers my Aunt Madison whips up each late afternoon. And as well mannered boy, it is only fittin that I help her wif the preparation!

Good manners are important in sweet and helpful boy, which I am most definitely boaf.

But prolly most helpful boy here is my Cousin, the Buddy! He is all ways eager and ready to pull kitchen duty, and he is very good at it! Why, just look at those eyes!!! They are sayin "please o please may I...!"

And just in case you wonder about the Breakfast Crew... It was my Uncle Chef Tom wif his assistants (aka The Herd, from left to right) Porter, Buddy, Dakota Iby the cabinet) and Dylan (out front to the right)!

Where you might ask yourself was the Luke... and the Bleu???

Answer to first part is... I charge in to mix wif the offer to help, but clearly, the Buddy and Chef Tom have fings well under control!

Answer to part two, is that the Bleu is a feared or maybe just super respectful of tile floors and food areas, but he cannot even be coaxed into the kitchen... and he will only enter (i.e. sneak in) to drink waters when noone is lookin.

So, when not pacin and tap tap tappin just outside of the kitchen...  Birfday Boy at ease time in family room.

Don't get me wrong, I am ok wif imaginary line he draw for himself... but I know it upset the Mom when he will not come in, share time and feel comfortable in this most wonderfullest of rooms... I fink he just need to spend more time wif the Buddy! Those two boys need to compare notes!

[Now... Trust me, the Bleu did not come upon this fear in our house! It is not that the Mom is loose wif the rules, but for sure she fink of house as OUR house... and me and the Bleu are welcome in ever square inch!]

Amazingly, we are not allowed to hang out in the kitchen during cooking. Apparently, our removing items from the counters slows the process for the humans.

P.S. from the Daisy: the bluff looks like just the place for a romantic stroll.

Luke - you have just had the most wonderful time away from home, haven't you? We are sorry Bleu is a little afraid, but that's OK, those floors can be slippery sometimes.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hey Luke,
Lots of us recue dogs are toting a little baggage along with us. Some of us let it go after a while and some of us tote it around longer or maybe even never give it up. Look at Coop out at Ben's (3 legs is better than 4) took over a year to start dropping off some of his baggage. We had Old Bear Dog that took about 2 years before he started trusting mom not to abuse him cuz some woman had in his previous life. It took about a year for Homer J. to drop his baggage in the trash. Jack took over 2 years to allow mom and dad to touch him and no he's a petaholic. The Bleu has issues and you and mom seem to be handling them just fine. Let Bleu be Bleu and he'll progress at his comfort level. The important thing is do you two like you life and love your mom and do you both feel her love. We know that the answer to that stupid question is a resounding YES>
