Never leave a toddler, a dog, and a cup of yogurt in a room together unattended.

Look at that mess.
I love the nuk in his mouth and the mess on his tray!
He looks so busted! And the poor dog with yogurt on him!

Oh yes, we've had "fun with yogurt" at our house as well. It's great for finger painting, no?

Yeah, our dog got hit with the sippy cup the other day b/c of his position under the high chair. Mental note to self about the yogurt.

I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT I SAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M STILL CRACKING UP!

kimmyk said...

Yep, that'll teach ya!

I think the dog liked it though....looks like he enjoyed every last drop of yogurt Max was sharin'.

Max is a sharer, nothin' wrong with that!

Kami said...

I know. Well, it's okay as long as food only hits the FLOOR. Not so bueno if you have to clean the doggie, too.

Peanutt said...

Ah, I remember the days! Its always good to have a dog around for these reasons! Less mess for you to clean. Look at that pup just enjoying the treats!!! LOL.

The same lesson applies to popsicles, lollipops, ice cream, jello, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter and chocolate pudding.

Some of these are naturally harder to get out of canine hair than others...... especially when said canine is not fond of the hose.

I'm just sitting here chuckling at those pictures, and being grateful that they didn't come from my kitchen this time. Because each and every meal is another opportunity to "frost" the dog with something.

I love how Max just looks like, "What? What are you laughing at?"

Stacie said...

Too cute! At least the dog is good for "clean up" as long as he doesn't shake...don't ask me how I know this, but That's Not Fun! Stacie

Well, he can't EAT it if he has a soother in his mouth--he must find something creative to do! Teehee

Come to my site and see my sister's bald head--she's so cute!

hee hee.

The Kept Woman said...

Wow, for awhile all I could read was your text as the pictures weren't up yet. I started snickering imagining it smeared all over the walls and kid and the dog licking off and Max laughing...

Cat said...

Noted.
;)

Susie said...

Oh, I thought the tip was going to be, always have a dog on hand when it's toddler feeding time. That works, too!

Odd Mix said...

Unless the dog is tall enough to reach the todler's face with its tongue, in which case there is virtually no mess at all.
