All's quiet

All is quiet in our corner of the world. I have a new dog recipe I want to try, but I ended up working this weekend and couldn't do it. Waldo's leg seems to be back to normal, which is a huge relief.

In a physical sense, he is well but we may have to get him into counseling for his emotional state. Peanut the cat is on a special diet for a bladder condition, and seems to have taken issue with the fact that Waldo has better food and treats than she does.

Whenever he eats, she will sit close-by and try to eat from his bowl. In this photo to the left, take note how he is looking at her with one eye while trying to eat.

She will sit patiently and wait until he's not looking to inch a little closer.

Waldo seems quite distressed about this and will do nothing to defend himself since it's just not in his nature. He hasn't quite realized that he is much bigger than her!

I have also tried feeding him in his pen, but she will camp outside of it (like in this photo) and reach through the bars to try and get to the food. Poor guy is being bullied by a cat. Do you think there is a support group for dogs in this situation?!?! =)

Poor Watson!I've seen dog feeding stations with a "snarl guard" to stop other dogs interfering, but I've not seen anything with built-in cat defences... maybe fence him in with a cardboard box or two?!

I think Waldo is just being a gentleman and is too gentle to turn on a lady!

Couldn't Peanut be placed inside a cat container while Waldo eats or placed on the other side of a closed door?

No doubt it would take 20 minutes to get Peanut into a container! Probably not a good idea...........

That's one cool hound!
I love the way dogs are so protective over their food - not too disimilar to myself :]

Lesley,
She is many things... but never a lady!

Dogga,
Yes, he is a cutie-cute. Very gentle and loving.

Poor Waldo! Clearly he needs lessons in the fine art of cat-defense. Tilly says that she's very happy to help....

I just LOVE these photo's. But I can see Waldo's point.....
