Musings about snack

Bob is feeding the cat, emily, and the dog, elly, snack. It is a word they both recognize. If asked about snack, they both go and sit at a particular spot in the kitchen–emily on the counter, elly on the ground right below emily. Then they get treat, one after the other. Bob reprimands whoever does not eat gently, tries to take the snack too fast, or generally has bad manners.

My question is–does the cat and or the dog recognize when the other animal is getting reprimanded? And if they do, what do they think?

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
