Have You Seen Us?

  • 1 avocado;
  • 1 tin of Christmas cookies;
  • One half dozen eggs, plus shells;
  • Three empty egg cartons;
  • 1/2 tomato;
  • 1 large bunch broccoli florets;
  • 1 freshly washed, empty Tupperware container.
In the past couple of weeks, various items from the kitchen have gone curiously missing. Also within the past couple of weeks our vet recently told us that Milo needs to lose about ten pounds. Coincidence? Doubtful. So this week we have officially submitted Milo's application to doggie fat camp. Upon further inspection, he does look like he swallowed a basketball. So we cut his food by about 1/2 a cup per day, and I think he believes that we are starving him, hence the above-referenced indiscretions.

As you can see, he's overflowing in his own chair.


1. Avocado
2. Eggs

*It is more difficult than you might think to draw on a glossy photo with a white marker. You would never guess that I went to art school. I apologize.


  1. I thought your drawing was quite good actually, and I didn't even need the legend to figure out what was what!
    Love, The Lone M

  2. i do NOT have your tin of christmas cookies. although i wish i did. okay, maybe NOT. poor milo, hang in there buddy. our older dog had to go on a diet, a year or two ago now. good grief, you'd think that we stole her bff. catch up with you soon enough emily. HUGE hugs!

  3. T - You are too kind. There is a reason we have been friends for 25 years : )

  4. Steve! It's been too long. We have chicken things for you & Dar.

  5. Rach, we are going to get together soon! Hugs to you too!

  6. Happy Heart Day, Em! Forgive me, but are you sure said items are all missing due to Milo...

    or could Ivy (highly likely) be involved, and maybe even Charlie (less likely but not altogether improbable)?

    Just asking - I am quite partial to the Milos of the world, after all...

    Go easy on the old chap - life ain't easy on 1/2 cup less a day. Just sayin'...

    PS XOX : )

  7. awww--poor milo. if tom put me on a diet he'd be missing more than a few kitchen items!

    p.s. i thought you had actually used whipped cream to draw ON milo : )
