Binky The Carrot Thief
Have a look at this video. This is what I have to deal with every single night. Binky, stealing my carrots.
It's no secret that carrots are her favourite. When mom or dad put the dinner plate down, they always hand deliver one baby carrot right to Miss Binks. "Special delivery for Miss Binky Binkowski! Are you Miss Binky Binkowski?"
"Why yes, I am!"
"Then this is for you!"
Then she proceeds to hide under the coffee table to eat it. No special delivery for me. I have to get up and hop over to the plate. *sigh*
Usually I start with parsley if there is any. Then I go for the dill. I used to love kale but Mom says my pee is a little sludgy so kale is officially off the menu. Next I'll sniff around the romaine and eventually find my own baby carrot. I start to nibble. As soon as this happens, Binky's ears perk up. Usually by this time she has finished her carrot and has a hankering for another, so over she hops. She will sniff the plate and even if she smells another carrot, she won't go for that one. Oh no. She has to go for MY carrot. Watch the video again......see? She comes up to the plate, almost touches her nose to another carrot, but doesn't take it. She wants MINE.
"Fluffy, what do you have?"
chompchompchomp "Nuffin'" chompchompchomp....
"It sounds like a carrot. Can I have it?" And before I even get a chance to answer, POOF, it's gone. That's okay Binks. Not like I was in the middle of eating that or anything. Sure, go ahead. Take it from right under my nose......
You owe me ear licks.....
P.S. Hoppy Thanksgiving to all my American Peeps out there!
P.P.S Thanks to Jade for the fix tip for the video!
