Roast Suckling Poodle

by Anne Bennett on October 2, 2012

Just kidding. But when Whitman fell asleep with his ball in his mouth, you must admit that he did take on a rather…shall we say, porcine, pose?

Poor Whitman. He has to keep the ball in his mouth at all times around our house, because if he lets it go for just one moment, Lulu dives on it and runs. It makes for a very exhausting day for a poodle pup.

Lulu was standing on point just out of the picture here, staring at Whit’s mouth, waiting for the ball to drop loose. Every now and then a fine line of drool escapes from her lips and falls slowly to the floor. It’s like watching an episode of National Geographic, if you know what I mean.

We’re still living in the cabana for the next few weeks while the floors in the house dry and cure. Today I’m making a one-pan meal, brown-rice jambalaya, that I can whip up on our two-burner electric cooktop. ┬áIt’s simmering now and it smells very New Orleanish. I’ll post it tomorrow if it passes muster.

Awwwww he is too cute. Well some of us sleep with our jewelry or cash under our mattresses, so Whitman sleeps with his most valuable posession in his mouth for safe keeping. hahahahahaha

If you had tried to get him to do that, it wouldn’t have worked. That is one great photo.

He’s dreaming of how he can possibly eat it.
