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.
