Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails - I can't believe I ate - by Phod

Today is the 2nd Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails organized by our pals Murphy and Stanley. The rules are simple, you can post whatever you want, but it needs to contain the key phrase.

Here is our Tail by Zaphod

I am a very good dog when my people are eating. I do not beg or carry on like Hailey does. I just lie on the floor waiting for my people to be done, no matter how good dinner smells.

Some nights I am lucky and get called over for treats, usually of the meat variety (my favourite). Well a week or so ago, the Man called me over for a new treat. As you know, I am usually very, very picky about what I eat. I turn my noise up at many things (unlike Hailey who is a garbage pail who will eat anything). I can't believe I ate corn on the cob and liked it!

At first I wasn't sure how to eat it, I tried to gnaw the whole thing.

Trying to gnaw it

But soon I figured it out and ate very daintily.

Now I know I like corn. Lady says all her dogs to date have loved a little gnaw on the corn. Do you like corn?


  1. Wow you like corn Phod? I don't like any veggies just meat for me and fish. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. We have corn in our food but haven't tried corn right off the cob

  3. I've never tried corn and for sure not corn on the cob. I think I would like corn on the cob b/c I could lay on the ground and nawl on it.

    Aroo to you,

  12. Our parents had some a little while ago but we must confess that we were a bit confused about how to eat it. Thanks for showing us how.

  13. We have never tried corn on the cob. Mom didn't know that dogs would love it. She promises that we can have some the next time. ☺

  14. Lucky boy, corn is really tasty!

  15. I never tried it either... but moms would be worried I would eat the whole thing.

  16. Dear Phod,

    I do not like the cob. I like corn, but only cooked, and on its own, and preferably with butter on it! Ojo tried eating the cob, but it made her choke and so the people took it away. This made her sad. We are glad that your corn did not get taken away. Things to chew on are the best!


  17. We haven't tried it with Monty and Harlow, but Sam used to love it!

  18. Phod - mum steamed a half corn cob for me once ..... and gave it to me once it had cooled to be just warm ... but I wouldn't touch it - funny - because I eat everything else ... oh except wallymelon. Don't eat that either.

  19. Wow that's pretty smart to eat it the right way.

  20. What a great story Phod, we have never tried corn before...but you sure made it look nommy!!

    I finally got round to visiting you!!! (Aunty's a bit slow off the mark at times...) this was a wonderful tale, if not particularly frightful... My dear old ever-red-eh Jade Dog LOVED corn and would gnaw for ages on the cob too. So glad you made this discovery for yourself Zaphod! Jade was labeled as a Ridgeback xStaffy, but I gotta tell ya there had to be a bit of the GSD in there somewhere too! I still miss her, nearly six years since she left... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
