Hmmm; I might be interested. (Luke left; Tilley middle and Jessie right)
The girls; Tilley and Jessie eat everything given to them, chicken, toast, cheese without hesitation. Not Luke; nope, he checks out each piece before taking it. If by chance it does not have enough butter on it; if it is a type of cheese that he is not fond of, forget it. If a piece of toast has a tiny corner of butter on it; he will lick off the butter and reject the rest of the toast. The night before we had been having an array of cheese with wine before dinner. Of course we shared; the girls happily ate whatever cheese was offered to them, not Luke. Once he got a taste for the Tuscano black pepper cheese, forget the rest. I offered him a nice sharp cheddar; nope. No he only wanted the "special stuff."
One of the highlights of the day is having breakfast in bed with the dogs. They are so well behaved; they all sit and wait their turn; no pushing, shoving or growling. Luke is usually apprehensive; he's comfy and not sure that it is worth waking up for. Often when offered a piece of our breakfast he decides that he was correct; not good enough to wake up for rejecting the food and opting to recurl back to sleep. The girls would never reject food; only if it truly was inedible. And don't even think about tossing Luke his treats; if it lands on his foot, grazes his face or drops on his leg, he's likely to get up and leave. Imagine.
Just realizing it is his favorite; as the girls wait patiently.
There are even foods that Luke will eat; or at least you think he's going to eat it. He chews; tosses it around his palate for a bit and then plop, out it comes. He is a rare boy indeed. And he will occasionally love something one minute; the next, no way is he eating it. So when Luke likes something we really run with it; like butter, the boy likes butter on his toast. So; there are a lot of crumbs in our bed and it makes me smile.
