Fishy Friday

We know there's no such thing as 'Fishy Friday' but it had a good sound to it, and we could tell you about another of our favourite foods.
It's Sardines in Oil. Our groomer (before Alph bought the clippers) suggested that as our skin was a bit dry, we should have some sardines in oil once a week. You gotta love someone like that who dispenses that kind of advice!

We just love them. Kendra and I used to share a tin on our dry food. It could be one of the reasons we had to go on the Weight Control kibble. Now with Bella, we each get a third. We can always smell the sardines when the tin is opened and become very excited. Kendra cries. Bella jumps up on Alpha's legs to try to hurry her up. I wait patiently.
Then we just put our heads down and eat. Kendra inhales hers, Bella is close behind, because Kendra tries to intimidate Bella to get hers, too. I eat slowly and growl if they get too close. It's the only time we lick our bowls for a long time. Then we exchange bowls to see if anydog was careless and left a smiggin of oil--not that that ever happens.
Sardines are divine!


  1. I luvs the sound of Fishy Friday! Happy Fishy Friday! We gets salmon oil on our foodies but I might have to talk to mom about actual real sardines. That sounds deeee-vine!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  2. Well, that sounds deeee-lightful! I'll ask my Mom for some of that fishy!

  3. Sardines eh....Have you ever tried playing the game? All Scotties get into one place and the hoomans have to find us.

    We do bowl swapsies too and because Bonny is such a 'powerful little animal' I have my tea in different room as her, so she cant steal my food.

    Still lovin' yer pics!

  8. Hi girls,

    We love sardines! The vet recommended it for Calvert when he wasn't eating well and for me because I have such dry and allergy prone skin and it seems to do the trick.

    We get them on Saturdays, isn't it the most delicious food you've ever had... Mom also gives us flax seed oil in our food for our coat.

    Well enjoy your Fishy Friday, just remember... it's okay to eat a fish but not to smell like one. hehehe


  9. We have never had sardines before! We're going to ask mom if we can give them a try once a week too!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. Daisy, what year computer do you have?? Mine is a 98. I feel your pain!!! The last 8 or 9 days it has been so bad I stopped blogging 5 days. I did get around to some blogs to leave comments but not like I would have liked. Today my computer has been fine too. It's doing everything it is suppose to do slowly, but doing it!! Computers!!!
    Thanks for your visit!!!!
    XXOO, Bambi & Fern

  12. We love sardines and salmon - but Mom has to give it to us when Dad isn't home - he fusses about the smell.
