We have a bunch of cats and a large-ish dog, so for economy’s sake we buy pet food in big awkward packages. We have to store these packages in a sealed closet because one of our cats — Chuckles, the Special Ed/Special Olympics feline — will climb over formidable obstacles to get at them, tear them open, and gorge himself. Like I say, he’s special. So we keep them hidden, and pour their contents into more manageable (sealed) containers from which we pour their meals twice a day.
On her way to work, Guido says, “Please fill up the dog food container — its the bag in the pantry with the picture of the dog on the cover.”
She specifies that because once in a while I grab the cat food bag by mistake and fill up the dog food container, or vice versa. I’m sort of blind, and to me, most pet food looks the same. I have the same trouble with human food, too, which has resulted in some intreresting recipes. Some day I’ll relate the tale of the Cesar salad I made with cabbage and sardines instead of romaine and anchovies.
Anyway, I go into the closet and look for the bag with the picture of the dog. Here it is. Do you see a dog? Is this like a Where’s Waldo for the visually challenged pet owner?
BTW, the dog doesn’t care one way or the other.
