You may have seen gift shop signs saying, "You break it; you buy it." While at the Sunday Lake Forest Park market, I thought of one for dogs: "You nose it; mom buys it." I was going to buy the blueberries anyway but told the lady at the booth exactly which box I wanted after Miro sniffed at it a little too closely.
He has a particular code of ethics. He doesn't see a problem with smearing his wet nose all over somebody else's food but he will not steal from a booth or even the ground. I have not tested this theory on meat or cheese! When I was buying green beans, which both my dogs like, Miro and I both noticed several that had fallen to the ground; but he did not eat a green bean until I gave him one I had purchased. Or is he just fastidious?
After I stowed the food in the car, we wandered over a bridge and to the creek that's right next to the shopping center where the market is held.
