Too much begging

I mentioned in a previous post that Shelby is having a little trouble fitting into her Chinese dress. Steven and I have noticed recently that the little pug's waist is not quite what it used to be. We have two suspects;

Grandma and Vin

My mom, upon reading this post, will probably vehemently protest that it is lack of exercise that has made Shelby a bit pudgy, and she would be right about that. Steven and I haven't taken her out for very many walks as of late. The snacks my mom gives Shelby are probably healthy ones.

Our second suspect is Vin.

I have seen him casually toss an entire piece of teething toast, and untold numbers of banana puffs on the ground simply to see Shelby gobble them all up. As a result, Shelby has started waiting right next to him for the next treat to fall.

The other day, I caught her waiting far too close.

obnoxious begging
Now Shelby, that's just impolite.

This is where she's supposed to be when Vin is eating.
begging from afar
But she's never there unless I tell to her sit there.

Those two are so cute. It doesn't look like Shelby or Vin are missing any meals.

I just love the close up of baby Vin's eyes and his smile...Shelby never misses the important stuff, huh??

Uh oh, Miss Shelby is going to have to go on a d-i-e-t. With spring coming, though, I'm sure you and Vin and Shelby will be able to get in some nice long walks soon!

I certainly recognize the look on Shelby's face. I see it every nite when I eat supper. Pure panic...are you really going to all of that????

They are tireless beggers. Professional moochers they are.

Is that a baby chair vin is sitting on or is it a normal grown-up chair?

It's a normal chair, with a booster chair strapped to it.
