I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Tuesday's Tasty Treat (#12)

Brussels Sprouts???

Stumpy loves her greens. She's very fussy though and mostly she only loves grass and bamboo. In the spring, I would hand pick the baby bamboo leaves because they're red and neither she (or Wabbit) believed red vegetables were edible.

When we lived back east, part of every day, in season, was spent grazing. In Dirtville, grazing is a bit of a challenge. I've tried them all and Brussels sprouts are all she likes (Wabbit loved them, too.)

Unlike most treats, Stumpy did not search out and eat every last crumb (or leaf, in this case)

Yesterday, the computer was infiltrated by a virus. I'm sorry if we didn't make it to your blog!

Mesa and Baily LOVE lettuce. They always want the cores we get rid of.


Deborah said...

They look great! I have never given Buffy any greens, maybe I should!!

Dream Valley Ranch said...

hahaha! I love how Stumpy keeps looking suspiciously backwards like you MIGHT DARE to try to steal her brussel sprouts :D

Good girl Stumpy! Protect your greens!

Tucker, Stumpy totally agrees. Unless you're talking about bamboo, grass or Brussels Sprouts.

Khyra, Weve never tried to cook them. why dirty a pot?

Kari, I wish Stumpy liked lettuce! brussels sprouts are NOT cheap!

Deborah, you never know until you try!

Sue, I know, right? She was killing me!

Sam said...

Marge has warmed up to some veggies.. it took her awhile, but she now enjoys lettuce on occasion.

Keep crunching away, Stumpy!

Brussels Sprouts! I have to say I've never eaten them myself, I don't know if Darwin would. She prefers fruits over veggies.

I bet Riley would love brussel sprouts! She likes pretty much everything...mainly because she just swallows things right down without tasting them. But she loves fruits and vegetables. I actually like brussel sprouts, but we never eat them around here.

Wyatt said...

Hmmm, I have never tried a brussel sprout...maybe sauted in a little bacon grease :)


Stella said...

My Mom eats all that green stuff, but it just isn't for me, much. Sometimes a few greenie beanies, but thats about it!

She says you are a good girl, Stumpy!

Can't say we have ever tried sprouts, but the Momster likes them with butter and salt and pepper. TD and Ciara love lettuce and carrots - part rabbit?

Hmmm...I've never tried those brussel sprout thingies. Maybe I'll see if mom will let me try some next time she makes them. But I usually don't like greens unless it's grass.

I liked that movie. It looked like Stumpy was saying, "Stay away from my brussel sprouts, woman!"

Wiggles & Wags,

Lorenza said...

They are yummilicious, right?
I love them too!
Kisses and hugs

rottrover said...

Sam, I wish Stumpy liked lettuce!

Brooke, Brussels sprouts are one of my favoirtes, too! Stumpy's lucky I don't mind sharing!

Elyse and Riley, Stumpy won't eat any other veggies, even if there's another dog around.

Wyatt, it's never too late!

OP Pack, Mom's got good taste! that's how I like them too!

Mayzie, Stumpy is like you, until it comes to Brussels prouts and bamboo.

Lorenza! another dog that knows whats good for her! I'm not surprised!

Ruby, Happy Gotcha Day to another Gotchaday Girl!

Booker, stumpy likes her vegetables raw, but if I cook veggies for myself I seam or bake them. Brussels sprouts would be steamed!
