Kip being Kip

I told Kip “Don’t you DARE eat that cake until I say you can.”

He waited. And waited. He sniffed… and waited. Finally I broke off a piece and set it aside and said “Now, there’s your piece.”

Kip being Kip.



P.S. I have the hardest time uploading these slide shows, and I did enter the text for the last two slides but they did not show up! I have no idea how to fix them.

    I admire you for sticking with it in the technology department. Kids learn this stuff so quickly, from day one it seems — but we have had to pick up everything when our brains were already formed and focused on other stuff.
    You do have one devoted dog. It’s his love for you that gives him that restraint.

    Oh my gosh, my heart just broke for that awfully good boy who ate that teeny tiny little piece of cake while that huge lovely chunk sat only a few inches away! No wonder his eyes looked so sad.


  3. Such a good dog! Sending Kip hugs. I love collies! Lassie was my all time favorite growing up.

    This is adorable! Reminds me a little of Nina’s observations of the European children being so patient at the table. 🙂

    I use Animoto for slideshows. Oy. The tangled journey, but I’m always pleased. Do you download your own music? Animoto has a nice selection, but my slideshows are usually theme oriented and I look for something specific.

    P.S. I thought I subscribed last week – probably didn’t click the right buttons so have subscribed again with my other mailbox. 🙂

    A good dog. We had a dog who would wait for permission, but one night we pushed him too far. As soon as we put the light out, we heard the crunch, crunch, crunch.

    wow…my kids didn’t behave this good.
    He is a sweetheart for sure and so is Em


  7. Bex says:

    He surely IS a love and he certainly is LOVED… he is one spoiled-rotten collie dog!

    One adorable, patient so sweet doggie. Kip truly is a love.


  9. Bex says:

    I think so too, Maggie, that’s why he always gets his picture taken! xxx


  10. Kip is one patient canine! Handsome fellow too!
