Spoilt or Ruined?

Most pet owners spoil their furry family members as a matter of course.
Some pets are allowed to sleep on the bed (we hold our hand up to that), or have their personal blanket and cushion in their own chair or sofa.
Some are even spoilt by surrogate Mummies putting the underfloor heating on so that their toes don’t get cold.
But today, Maggie  had waitress service.
latte-coffeeWe were introduced to latte coffee several years ago fancying something different and seeing two rather intriguing glasses being brought to the table next to ours.
We asked what they were, and told Latte Coffee. We’ve been hooked ever since, though mainly in the takeout department with a bacon roll as a side.

I’ve mentioned before that Maggie is rather partial to the froth, and will sit patiently waiting for her treat, getting her nose stuck right in and coming out looking like Santa with a brown beard and moustache.
Today is the first time since my op that I’ve walked the full length of the High Street, and we had a breather on the way back for coffee on our preferred bench by the traffic lights. Hubby treated me, and I sat outside with her ladyship.
As we began to people watch, one of the new ladies in the shop came out with a paper mug half filled with leftover frothy milk.
‘There’s no coffee or chocolate in it, ‘she said, ‘but rather than waste it, I thought she’d enjoy it.’
It was difficult to determine which bit of Maggie wasn’t wagging, as she tentatively licked the sides, then thrust her face fully into the cup, closing her eyes in nothing less than ecstasy.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Isn’t it great when other people appreciate how special your pet is too? 😀
    Happy Maggie!
    And very well done to you for walking so far. 🙂

    Oh that’s lovely!

  3. Glad to hear you were able to get out and about for a bit. I know Maggie enjoyed her walk, and her treat. I think my Cody would like the froth, too, but I’d have to be especially careful that she not get any coffee – she’s already too hyper!

    Animals are a great example of how to enjoy life.
