I am not fond of toast. i tolerate it. The dog on the other hand is totally in love with toast time. And sharing the limelight, my partner, who is also partial to toast. So the two of them enjoy a few minutes in the morning bonding over toast πŸ˜€

I only come into my own when preparing our meals and chopping on the board, shelling peas or beans (high hopes that some will fall on the floor), and getting his breakfast ready, although this is invariably preceded by considerable glaring as I don’t do it fast enough for his liking.

I am sure this photo challenge will get endless soppy pix of animals (probably including pet goldfish), supposedly cute kids, and romantic couples. As I don’t have the last two, it has to be the animal pic, although it does include my partner. And, my dog was the first subject that came to mind on seeing the challenge.

The first photo I wanted to use was already used earlier for ‘Together’ – it would have made a good one for this theme though, because it also encompasses love of being outdoors and love of our life in Spain. But toast will have to do instead.

I see the photo is meant to be a new one specifically created for the challenge. Er I don’t think so when I have hundreds of photos, all looking the same, of my dog’s love for toast.

  1. Ha, that photo is great πŸ™‚
    Pippa’s face speaks volumes, he’s willing it into his mouth πŸ˜† (bit like the recent one of J and cake), and A’s face?…..’my toast, but I might share it’


    • Yes, it is very J-ish πŸ˜€

      I think A is saying – just wait – followed by crunchy crunchy, don’t swallow it all at once πŸ˜€

      Pippa is saying – I want that toast NOW!

  5. Pippa’s love of toast is legendary. Love the photo, that well placed paw says it all!


    • Well, it is amongst the readers of his blog. He even eats my toast (unbuttered – ethics and all that), but he particularly loves yeast extract toast too. OK any toast πŸ˜€

      As I said above, to Canoe, his right paw is definitely in there for the kill (his usual trick with rats πŸ˜‰ ). Occasionally he gets bored with lying there and has been known to stand up imperiously on his sofa – and yet, he never takes anything. Although not a good idea to eat something and wave it around in the air and not keep an eye on it πŸ˜€

      Thanks KB


  6. love it! er, that was an unintentional play on the word for this challenge.
    so a toast to Pippa and to toast, and to A who shares his toast, and to you for sharing this moment which made me smile.


    • i especially love – urk, but it is the only appropriate word – that huggable big right paw! πŸ™‚


      • thanks p&k

        ha! I had not thought about toasting toast – too busy thinking about a dog’s love for toast

        I wanted a soppy dog pic but I’m afraid toast won out πŸ˜€ but glad I raised a smile

        That right paw is the one that gets used to urge smaller animals into submission eg rats, and er, well you get the idea. I think he is right-pawed!

  10. So toast conquers all, not love… I’m with Pippa & A, be it ever so humble toast there is nothing like toast. I can cut back when necessary but to forever abstain from toast is unthinkable. I love that you’ve captured this moment πŸ™‚ I have many happy memories of sharing my toast with the four legged furry ones.


    • It’s never done anything for me and especially now I try and avoid butter as much as possible. If I do have toast I’ll either have it as a toasted sandwich eg burger, (no butter) or as a vehicle for yeast extract which is possibly it’s best purpose in life. Pippa also loves it with yeast extract πŸ™‚ Yes, dogs and toast seem to go together don’t they?
