Amiss(ing bread loaf)

February 24, 2008

I had a relatively uneventful yet exceptional day today. I managed to do my workout in the morning, which tends to be the key to having an awesome weekend day. My workout was a really fun multi-brick thing that kept me interested and engaged for the entire two hours. Now THAT is a well-written workout! I drove into work for it so I could set up my trainer right next to the treadmill. On the weekend I’m the only person likely to use the gym and I can sing loudly with my ipod which is a bonus.
When I got home I was pretty tired, so I laid down on the couch, read a little, and had an amazing nap. After a few hours of resting on the couch I walked the dogs and shovelled some snow – it was beautiful and sunny out and the recent snowfall is still fresh and powdery so the dogs had a blast playing outside. Then I drove into town and bought groceries, which was very ambitious for me who hates grocery shopping.
When I walked in the door from shopping I could instantly tell that something was amiss, but I couldn’t figure out what. Two guilty-looking dogs. One piece of torn plastic on the floor. I later discovered it was the wrapper from a fresh-baked loaf of bread GB had bought. The bread was nowhere to be seen. I searched the kitchen and then called GB to see if I was looking in the right place. GB confirmed that it had been on the counter which confirmed that someone had eaten THE ENTIRE LOAF! And it wasn’t me. I couldn’t even find any crumbs!! The dogs have been extremely docile this evening. As tired, in fact, as if they had eaten a whole loaf of bread. Hmmmm. Suspicious. And now Jack who has a wheat allergy is suddenly scratching his ears and rubbing his face on the ground. Hmmmm. Suspicious.
Well, I’m hoping the cost of this lesson (the lesson being that food belongs in higher places out of reach of doggie teeth) is only a loaf of bread and not a vet bill. I think it would be safe to say that at this point, I am feeling much better about my day than the dogs are about theirs!

    I hope your doggies are okay!! But I had to laugh – Roxy our dog has done the very same thing. Only she actually opened a drawer to get the loaf of bread out. She’s also eaten a whole entire fruit cake. And she only weighs 25 lbs to begin with! But lucky for us she has an iron stomach and never gets sick! πŸ™‚

    Anyway, glad to hear you had such a great day and great workouts this morning! πŸ™‚
