Who missed Corbin antics???

Well, YOU my friends, are in luck because I have a little story for you. 

Let me set the stage for you... the momma's went to the food store after work - not the dog food store, the people food store that I'm not allowed in.  So, when she got home, she had to take ALL the bags of foods from the car to the kitchen.  I sat nicely and watched.  Then, she was putting all the stuff in their spots... and... well, this is how it went.

The momma: Coooooorbiiiiin..... (she drags my name out when she's not quite sure she's mad yet)
Corbin:  What?
The momma: CORBIN! (in the quick oh-you-are-in-trouble! tone)
Corbin: What?
The momma: Corbin!  Do you not understand the word "NO!"?!
Corbin: Oh, well, I do... but sometimes I get confused somewhere between the N and the O... maybe there's a silent yes? NyesO?
The momma:  Ugh, Corbin.
Corbin: Oh... the bread?  Was that yours?
The momma: YOU know better.  You're BOLD.
Corbin:  But... I was hungry.
The momma:  You just ate your dinner!
Corbin: I'm a growing young man, momma.  I need more food to help fight my ouchies.
The momma: You're almost 3, you're done growing.  Food won't help your ouchies.  This conversation is over.
Corbin: Can I at least eat the rest of the bread?
The momma: NO!  And NO, there is NO silent YES in there.  The answer is NO.  N.O.
Corbin: Starving...
Corbin: Just look how famished I look....
Corbin: There are starving children all over the world that would love for me to eat this bread.
The momma: ENOUGH.
Corbin: Fine.


  1. OMD....That bread would of been gone in 10 seconds at our house! Good boy, Corbin, fur leaving some fur Mom!

  2. I bet your mama was secretly smiling, even though she pretended to be mad. Get into as many antics as you can while you're still ouchies, buddy, because now is probably the best time to actually get away with it! :)

  3. Corbin... We gotta say your mom is full of the unreasonables! We can totally see how starved you are... just look at you... you can't even get up AND we're pretty sure that we read something on the interwebs that said bread helps the ouchies!

  4. Kudos to the mama for making you pose with your stolen bread loot! I bet there was loads of Leave Its in the conversation along with N-O's. :) Maybe you should practice swallowing loaves of bread as quickly as possible, that way, the mama has no time to remind you that there's no silent yes?

  5. Corbin, you would have thought she would have been proud that you were able to get that bread and not have your ouchies hurt you. They just don't seem to understand our needs. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  6. Ha ha ha! You really tried, Corbin. That bread sure does look yummy. Hope it was worth it. We like the way you put in the ouchies card, sorry it didn't work...

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  7. Corbin, We are so so so happy you are feeling better and better!! I cook green beans for Zoie when she wants extra and she has had all the dog food she should have!!! She gets something special to eat that is not that fating!

  8. Good to see you up to your old self again, Corbin. Let's hope those ouchies stay away!!

  9. Well I would have let you eat the rest of it!

  10. Mesa would agree that bread is meant for dogs :)

    Stop on by for a visit

  11. You did not eat much of the bread. Lola would have eaten i and I would have found the wrapper and it would have taken me days to figure out what it was from

  12. We LOVE bread. We steal any bread that might be left out on the counter at night and take it to our dog den - and leave a hooge mess for the morning!! YUM!!

  13. Well... WHAT did... S H E ... expect. If it is Reachable it is munchable. THAT is the rule. I read it in the HANDYbook. I really did.

    The Best Pawt is... you are feelin up to some of your hijinks. THAT is just wonderful.

    Nice try using the "I have an owie" trick.
    Way to Go Corbin!!

  14. ppppssss corban - come closer. I will share my food 'protecting' strategy with you. You simply tell your mom your body had a craving for certain proteins, mineral, vitamins and you just had to give in to it :)

  15. Corbin, maybe if you ate more bread, your ouchies would go away. Well maybe not but if you can reach it,it is yours, thats how I roll.

  16. Bruhaahaahaa! Sometimes you just have to open the self service department!

    It's great to see you getting into some mischief despite your ouchies.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  17. Bwaaaaa ha ha! I've seen this conversation happen at my house! Not with me, of course, but with, ahem, other dogs who shall remain nameless. Corbin, Mom and I were howling with laughter by the end!


  18. aren't they drama queens Corbin? Nutty N,,,O... NO sounds like go get it go fet it...good boy
    Benny & Lily

  19. Oh-oh!
    Sure I was missing your antics!
    Good job, Corbin!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  20. Heh Heh Heh Bet that bread just jumped right out of the bag and into your mouth Corbin. Bite that bread and punish it good ;)

    Waggin at ya,

  21. Your human needs a reality check. First of all, I am sure there is a silent yes in the word no, particularly when the flashie is out. Next, how about asking her if she always waits until she is hungry to eat. I doubt it. And finally, I think noms DO help your owchies, so there.


  22. Hee hee, you is a dog after my own eart Corbin...oh NyesO you are. Woof

  23. LOL. Bella did something similar once - she loves bread!
