Worth The Wait



Clink! Aha! It was time for me to join him. I rush and wait outside his shop. I see him arranging the steel containers on a make-shift table.

I hear him mumble a small prayer. Why he gulps his food greedily, I always wonder. He slurps and burps his way through the meal. Finally, glug-glug and he washes down his sumptuous meal with buttermilk.

At last, he casts a glance my way. He knows I am waiting.

He throws a bread in my direction, I lap it up and make a soft growling sound and leave with a wagging tail.

  1. Awww you perfectly described what it sounds like at my house around the dinner table with my four dogs watching us eat and hoping/begging for the odd scrap of food. Brilliant!! Love the picture of the lovely dog. β™₯

    • Aww. Thanks a lot Kathy. Glad that you relate to this scenario. πŸ˜€
      Liked the hoping/begging part πŸ˜‰ … do you give in and give them something to eat like that? or are you strict about serving them their food in their bowls at a given time only?
