Here I am just lounging around again. Mom got a bad case of the blahs yesterday and didn't do much. I didn't get another ride in my stroller and we didn't even get steak.

Karen Jo: Sorry, Herman. I decided that I really needed to eat more of that meatloaf, so I can finish it before it goes bad. I don't want to freeze it.  I did give you lots of Mom time.

Yes, that was fun, even if I didn't want to play. 

Karen Jo:  You did play with the red spot for a while.

Good news.  Mom brought home lots and lots of treats.

Karen Jo:  They were on sale, so I stocked up.

Mom opened up a package of Dairy Temptations.  I like them.  I also like the Friskies Indoor Adventures treats.

Karen Jo:  The only treats you haven't liked were the ones that were supposed to be good for you.

Healthy treats, yuck!  It seems like a contradiction in terms.  Treats are just supposed to taste good.

Karen Jo:  Well, you have a good supply of Temptations and Friskies Party Mix now.  I still haven't gotten you any more Greenies, but the weather has been too cold to walk all the way up to the store that carries them.  Maybe my next day off.

Herman, I totally hear you on the healthy treats! You know what's really funny? When humans try to convince themselves their own treats are healthy! Like the dark chocolate my human likes - she says that is a healthy treat. Yeah, right.

Herman, those are my favorite treats too. I have trained Mom to sprinkle a few Party Mix on my moist food if I am not eating it. Yum! Greenies? Bleh.

You're right, Herman, healthy treats does seem like a contradiction in terms!
Julie says..I'm finishing up meatloaf, too. Why does it seem endless toward the end??

Have a great weekend, Herman & Karen Jo!

Herman, it sounds to us like your Mom is doing a very good job of keeping you well-supplied in goodies. Hope you get a taste of steak soon:)

We agree with you on the healthy treats Herman. How can it be a treat if it is healthy?

Treats should never be good for you. Why would you eat them?!

Herman, if Beins were cats, they would eat Twinkies and Cheetos all day. And if we were Beins, we would eat kitty treats all day. MOL!

Our mom tried to give us low calorie treats! Can you imagine that?? Treats are supposed to be good and fattening!! Not diet!!

But y'know what?? They were kinda tasty...not like greenies, but they were good!!

You can never have too many treats!

Herman, one time my brother at the bridge ate a few too many 'healthy' treats (they were some kind of fiber treats), and he got explosive diarrhea! hahaha, our mom felt terrible for giving him so many without thinking what would happen. So, we think you're smart not to eat healthy treats!
