Tasty Tripe

I got my very first taste of tripe last Thursday.  We chose to go with the sheepie tripe first. Can you see my eyes and my smile?  This is good stuff!
 Mom was a little bit worried about popping off the top of the can and being overwhelmed by the aroma - some of you did sorta comment that this stuff is potent.
Mom says that the best way she can describe it being at the Durham Fair in the cattle barn and one of the cows takes a nice big dump and you just happen to be right behind him. 

I just happen to think this is a fabulous treat and I just can't get enough of it!
 It was good to the last lick and I sure wish My Maggie would have been right beside me enjoying it just as much as I did.
Thank you so much again, Miss Elaine. What a treat this was!  I can't wait to taste the deer tripe and the cow tripe and mom can't wait to see if they smell worse or better!

So until next time.........

Love ya lots,

Hehehehe...OMD, your eyes is as big as saucers...I loves it!
We has a supplement we takes fur our backs, it's like a powder and mum has to hold her nose when her dips it out. So we understand.
I am so glad you enjoyed your foodables and I knows Maggie is lookin' down and just smilin' at you.

Isn't it funny how the stinky stuff is usually the best tasting stuff?!

We've never had tripe, but if it's stinky we'd like it. Mm says we love stinky food best and sometimes we like to roll in stinky stuff, too.

I m thinking it will probably get worse....erk I still shudder at the thought of the smell when my Mom cooked it. But you know the dogs rule - anything that smells bad always taste good or is good to roll in!!!

Mitch, you sure look like you enjoyed your tripe!

We were visiting a country market a few months ago and they had fresh tripe on sale. Clive had to be pulled away from the counter!

Hi Mitch, my dad just laughed when he saw your eyes in the first photo and laughed even more when he read your mom's description of the smell. This is a great thing, to be able to laugh and smile again when they come to visit your blog. We miss Maggie too.

Oh my gosh! We are never in blog land any more these days, but we just popped into Asta's blog to see how her move went and saw that Maggie passed. So sorry to hear about your loss. She was a lovely, lovely girl and I'm so happy Sophie and I got to meet her. I will always remember Maggie wanting Sophie to play with her. So sweet. Hugs to both of you and to Mitchy, who I'm sure is also mourning the loss of his sister.

All our best,
Sherry and Sophie Brador

Dat must be some smelly stuff...Dat first photo is precious! Look at those eyeballs!

Must be really good though.

Wyatt said...

That first picture kinda says it all! When your eyes get as big as silver dollars, you know it has to be good!!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Mitch
I know you say that stuff is yummy.
But if I had it, I don't know that my moms would ever kiss my lips again!
I am glad you have it!

KB said...

Your description of the smell of tripe made me laugh out loud!!! I bet that my dogs would love it too.

Teddy Bear said...

Wow, Mitch, what a treat!!! We've never had tripe before.

Angus said...

Mitch . Lucky you. A whole can of tripe . Canine perfume !

Mojo, Digger and family said...

Hilarious! Stinky food = googly eyes!
We love stinky food (think dead fish on the canal bank) and usually try to roll in it. But we've never had tripe. Bet it was goooood.

Princess Patches said...

Wow, Mitch! Your googly eyes and toothy smile say it ALL! My mom kind of figured the tripe would be STINKY stuff! Back in the early 70's, my mom had a boyfriend who's father ate tripe. She couldn't even walk into his house when it was cooking! She's pretty sure the neighbors could smell it too! We're glad you enjoyed it, though!


animal lover, quilt lover said...

Well Mitch, I think we will have to get Tom in on this!!! You look like you loved loved it!!! If it is that good we need some don't you think???????

Sherry said...

Cow smells are bearable--in a cow barn. Your mom is brave, Mitch, to introduce it into the house. I'm not surprised that you find it a gourmet delight 'cause dogs love stinky things!
(I'm so sorry about Maggie; I didn't see the news until recently. How terribly quiet the place must seem!)
Sherry, Alanis & Miro

Sam said...

I think I'm not wanting it in our house, although if the time ever came and we needed a pup to eat, we will remember it!


Ms. ~K said...

Look at your eyes and teethies...You look like you're smiling!
Good stuff, huh?

The Army of Four said...

I'd like to think Maggie is enjoying something even more wonderful than what we can imagine!!!
HA roo - your eyes remind me of the first time I ate mackerel. WHOA!!!!!
Play bows,

Missy said...

Loved this post. Gave me a good LOL!! Loved the picture of Mitchie's eyes nice and wide with his big smile.
