'Toby Eating'

It worked! It WORKED! IT WORRRRRKED!

I'm not exactly sure how, though. Because when I went to bed last night, my attempt to upload had failed. Then, this afternoon, when I logged on to write about yet another miserable failure, an annonymous commenter mentioned "my video on Xanga."

EUREKA!

And, sure enough, when I checked, there it was. Toby spitting out kibble all over our ghetto kitchen floor. I've never seen anything so beautiful in my entire life.

So, without further ado, I am happy to share my video debut in all its horridness. I laugh, the camera shakes, I even switch to "night vision" mode half way through, you know, just to test it.

I know it won't be worth the wait or any of the hype, but enjoy it anyway.

Because it was a total pain in my ass.

Love it! After your description of Toby eating, I thought you might be exaggerating a bit about the "not over the bowl" part. But he is SO consistent! Every time he left the bowl I laughed a bit harder ...

Love your new site and all you share with us.

that was so cute! my dog also grabs a mouth full of food and spits on the ground then eats it again three feet from the bowl.

kristen said...

LOL. i giggled everytime he looked at the camera and went back to the bowl. he's picky about his food!

Amy said...

Toby is seriously the cutest dog ever... besides mine of course. I loved how he kept looking up at the camera like "WTF is going on here!" Sooo cute!

my grandma's dog always did the same thing. Only the bowl was in the kitchen and he would only eat when everyone else did, and he would bring a mouthful over at a time and eat under the table! Not only that but he wouldnt eat the red bits in the kibbles n bits...

Hee hee hee hee..... ^^

Hooray for you! My last dog would've eaten all her food in the time it took Toby to get the first mouthful spread around and eaten.

Hey---I think that was the same lino tile I had on my kitchen floor when I moved in. It was a most unattractive gold and white.

Mia said...

Hahaha, that is too funny.
When my dog gets a biscuit, he likes to take it gently then run to the other room and eat it there. Probably because he's the smallest and the other two will inhale theirs then go after his.

My cat does something similar...he scrapes the food out of his bowl with his paw and then eats it off the floor. LOL Animals are weird.

your dog has serious paranoia.

blueskitten said...

Maybe we should all start putting our pets' food directly onto the floor and save them the trouble.

Emilee said...

Congrats!

I love how he's so paranoid, looking over his shoulder and to the left and right before eating. =]

Hannah said...

HAHA! Congratulations!

I think it's pretty funny how he throws the food out of his mouth onto the floor and then eats it from there. Then when it's time to get more food he just looks at you like, "don't go anywhere, okay?" haha!

I can't believe I just analyzed your dog eating food. That's the kind of power you have over us. :)

Haha, you would think eventually he would just eat the darn food out of the bowl to save himself the time and trouble.

Janice said...

for some strange, unknown reason, I watched this and LAUGHED SO HARD.

Now THAT is some Oscar worthy material!! :-P

Oh, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks Toby's eating habits are hilarious. After watching it 4,502 times, I started to wonder why exactly I was trying so hard to upload it here.

Thanks for making me not feel like, you know, Crazy Dog Owner Lady.

Monica said...

HILARIOUS! :)

Randall said...

It's cinematic genuis! Fascinating and compelling!
...and I watched the whole darn thing.

Hehehe... he really has a system of how he handles it! I love how he pauses after eating each food transfer and looks at you as if saying, "what?" And then shrugging his shoulders.

mommydoodle said...

I think it is very funny to see Toby take a bite of kibble from the bowl, drop it on the floor, and then eat it again. Maybe he thinks he is at a buffet line!!!

You know, it's hilarious to watch him throw the food on the ground. Have you ever tried just putting his food on the floor for him?

Nifty, I didn't know I had a Google blog account.
