We stopped by our fellow wirey pal Bertie's blog this morning and discovered he and his mom are planning an agenda to enlighten us canines about all kinds of super scientific things. Considering Bertie's young age, we were truly impressed at this proposed endeavor. But one of the things he said had us kind of stupefied.
Bertie said that it would be kind of like "a dog's breakfast." Those words echoed in our wirey ears because we've been hearing that phrase in a totally different context. You see, as we told Bertie, the company our Dogdad works for, a 50-year old employee-owned engineering company, is about to be acquired by a very large UK firm. It's kind of a bittersweet moment. But, to make the best of it, we've been trying to learn proper British expressions. "A dog's breakfast" is one of the first that came up -- and, since our breakfast (and our dinner) is mostly same-old, same-old kibble, with an occasional dollop of pumpkin if we look bored enough -- we're kind of suspicious! And then to hear Bertie use it, only heightened our suspicions.

A LITTLE UPDATE: While we've been talking about a dog's breakfast, it's appropriate to mention the Pedigree Adoption Drive and Pedigree's commitment to donate 20 pounds of food to animal shelters for each post mentioing the drive. Thank you Pedigree!! Dog's Rule. You've said it. We know it!
