Ice Cream Makes Everything Better

In the evenings Rob and I sometimes enjoy a treat of ice cream. Rob fixes it and usually puts it in a large mug. We used to use regular coffee mugs, but Samba requested that we not use those small mugs anymore.
The reason is that the dogs all lie quietly around the room as we eat our ice cream, but each of them is watching us. As soon as they hear the spoon scrape against the mug, they're up and asking to lick out the mugs. Their big faces don't fit into small coffee mugs and the good stuff on the bottom is out of reach. With the big mugs they can get right down to the bottom.
Half of them go to Rob to help clean his mug and half come over to me. I grabbed my camera and caught the last few enjoying their special treat last night.
Notice that Tsar's legs may not work well anymore, but that doesn't stop him from helping with the ice cream.

My girls love ice cream too, but I had Samoa ice cream last night so no sharing! (Chocolate)

I'm glad Tsar is still "up" for ice cream. Thinking of you... and of Mugsy.

As long as Tsar's tongue still works!

We love ice cream, too. But we wouldn't be so good at sharing out of one mug. So we usually get a spoonful in our dishes.

Good idea Samba...about the mugs.

Awwww, good for Tsar. We say Mom should have Dad make two mugs of ice cream for her, but one would really be all for you!!!

Years ago when we would almost empty the half gallon block, my Mom would open it all the way up, put a newspaper on the floor, then lay the empty ice cream container down for my little Boston Stubby, to finish off. He would chase it all over the floor and love every mouthful of it, just like you Porties do.

Cute! She says as she finishes her bowl of ice cream that the hubby brought her. My pack help clean the bowls too and we always have to remind Beau that no matter how clean he gets it - the bowl will still go in the dishwasher!
