TWO CARROTS AND A BONE

My DH wanted me to write this. Rosie begged for part of our pork chop tonight, but we both ate all of ours and had nothing left on our plates. Earlier today I had given Rosie two little carrots which she did not eat. In deperation, she piled up her two carrots and her favorite bone at my husbands feet. He is smarter than me. I did not realize that she was offering a trade but he did. He picked up her offering and went to the kitchen and cut her 6 bites of our planned lunch for tomorrow. So he extrapolated that two carrots and a bone equals six parts pork. Course he will have to do further research to prove this theorum. (God I hope he hasn't started something that I will have to keep up.)

She is so clever! I think that they are pretty smart. It will be interesting to see if she continues to offer trades.

My husband just looked up to see what I was laughing about! Wouldn't you love to just spend five minutes inside their brains! What do they think of us?

Well I can tell you that she thinks her daddy is an idiot. He actually took her offering and gave up HIS lunch for tomorrow. Seriously though, Josie taught her the trade for food. Josie brings mice, birds, etc and leaves them on the deck for stinky cat food. God I hope Rosie doesn't bring in varmints too.

Cute story, Lucile! These Havs are just very clever - I am becoming more and more convinced of it as time goes on. Sweet Rosie!
