That Nasty Lemon

This is my most hated food in the whole wide world!

Mom know this and she loves to tease me and I don't appreciate it AT ALL! She was making some chicken dinner with lemon and garlic and white wine and parsley and she figured that she'd sneak a lemon half over my way and see my reaction! My reaction is to turn my back on her and ignore her! But Mitch has never been offered a lemon before! Stoopid boy fell for it hook, line and sinker!

He kept right on licking it and enjoying it! I could care less! Who wants to eat something so disgusting!

I guess we know who mom will be offering the lemons too from now on! Good! Now she won't tease me any more!

He is enjoying it, isn't he?! Look how happy he is! What a sicko!

Do any other doggies out there like lemons? Please stand up! I wanna meet you!

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

Love ya lots,

I've never tried a lemon before - but Mitch is making it look very tasty!!


Willie and Waylon said...

Thanks so much for the Xmas card! We DO NOT like lemons... our dad tried them on us last night... yuck!

Putter said...

Hi Maggie! Hi!

I have never ever tried a lemon, but I suspect I am with you, Maggie! Silly Mitchy!!!!!!!

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Sir Chance-Lot said...

Emily and Ike said...

Lemons are like hell if fruit could be hell.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh Maggie I am with you entirely! But I don't like any fruit or vegetable, although I am very healthy!

oh I forgot I do like apple, my Jeannie gives me apple slices, oh yes, Apple, but no way, Lemon sucks!

or should it be I suck lemon.....oh well I am only a dog, what do I know!

love and licks, Marvin xxxx

Harry said...

I just love your reaction Faya! I'm not sure if I have tried them. Maybe we'll do an experiment.

Hi Maggie,

Hmmmm...I don't believe I've ever tasted a lemon. I'm pretty picky. But Gabe, he'll eat anything. I think I'll ask Jen to give the old Gabester a taste of lemon...just to see. I'll report back to you my findings.

Woofs and slobbers,
'Bella (and Gabe too!)

Maggie and Mitch

smoochie kisses

Lucky Dog Boarding said...

Hmm, I never tried lemon before, but if Mitch likes it, then I bet I'll like it! Maybe it's a guy thing.

Either way, Maggie, from now on you just might be safe and lemon-free!


Comet said...

Our girl LOVES lemons, but we both think they are nasty and gross! Comet eats other fruits like oranges and clementines, but BLU hates all fruit - unless it is coated in gravy - and then she might accidentally eat some when she licks the gravy off.
Thanks for the great card. You both look so sweet.
Comet and BLU

Lucky Dog Boarding said...

Oh, I didn't mean to alarm you. I failed to mention in my haste to post that the vet does NOT feel that it's 'bloat' or a flipped stomach. If we thought so, we'd already be in surgery. It's more likely a small obstruction that I'm hoping will pass. If she does get any worse, though we'll be straight off to the E.V.H. Thanks for your wonderful thoughts and I'll keep you updated!


Luckie Girl said...

I haven't tried lemons but I'm okay with oranges. But given a choice, I rather go with other fruits or vegetables. Don't ask me why but my hoomans think I'm a rabbit and I get all these green stuffs.

Gus said...

oh maggie...we like tangerines and clementines and some oranges, but mostly we like pecans! We do not eat lemons or graperfruits!


Snowball said...

May be Mitch thinks that he need more Vit C.

I never like fruits. The only fruits I eat is boiled apple with meat and seaweed.


Kirby said...

Hi Maggie,

Lemons, huh? I haven't tried them yet. I am partial to apples and PINEAPPLE! Just love the pineapple. I'll have to try out the lemon and see if I'm more Maggie or Mitch when it comes to liking/disliking them.

Your pal,

2shibas said...

We've never had a lemon but our mom's cheeks puckered just from reading that! We wonder why?

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie
I am with you too! Lemmons are yuck!!
How can Mitch enjoy them??
You have to admit that he looks happy tasting it!
Have a good night

T-man Angel said...

I've never tried them before, but they're probably not on my diet..citrus is a no no. Mom is surprised Mitch likes those. Hee hee, Maggie is funny turning her back on the lemon!

Patience-please said...

We like lemon pie, and salmon with lemon, and limoncello! so we think we like lemons!

Stanley said...


You crack me up how you completely turn your back on your mama. And that MItch, he'll eat ANYthing, won't he?

Don't know if I'm a Maggie or a Mitch when it comes to lemons, but I love every fruit I've ever tasted up til now (mostly nanas, clementines, apples and berries).

Tell your mama we found a big box on our porch today. My girl won't let us open it til tomorrow!

Goober love & smooches,

i said...

Never tasted it before although LadyS. has lemons in the house all year round. Maybe I should go try it.

Huskee and Hershey said...

OMdoG... Mitch is really enjoying it!! I mean.. How??? I can't believe my eyes..

(But well, at least your mom will not offer it to you next time!)

fee said...

Puggle Preston said...

Maggie, I am with you on lemons. I made funny faces when I ate sour fruit.

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Woh Mitch likes lemon. Maybe that one is sweet..

Noah the Airedale said...

Hi Maggie
The gals eat lots of fruit but never lemons. I don't eat fruit or veg...yuck! I'm a meat lovin' dog!

Thanks so much for the lovely xmas card, we love it.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Erm, sorry Maggie, but like Mitch I'm another lemon-lover. Not surprising really as I'll eat ANYTHING! J x

Simba and Jazzi said...

I have never tried a lemon. But I eat most things.

Boo Casanova said...

wet wet licks


Girasol said...

What a weird dude hehehhehe lemon what's next lime?

Unknown said...

I like lemons...Though mom hasn't let me eat one, she'll let me lick it for a while. She takes it away when she thinks I've had enough to avoid a tummy ache. I also LOVE watermelon, oranges, cantelope, honeydew, and strawberries! They are superyum!


Lucky Dog Boarding said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch. Thanks for all of the wonderful thoughts you sent my way. I bet your aire-zen helped me get better! I'm feeling a lot better now. I must have eaten something I wasn't supposed to, but I don't remember what. Personally I think M flipped out a little more than was necessary, but I guess she was worried that it might have been worse than it appeared.

Licks and wiggles,

Murphey said...

Yuck, I agree with you, lemons are yucky. Reilly hasn't had one yet, but he's just dumb enough to like it, silly boy.


the many Bs said...

Does Mitch pucker when he eats a lemon? we've never had one, but probably only Benson would eat it. Benson will eat anything. the rest of us are more discriminating.


Ferndoggle said...

Well, Mitch...I eat just about anything my people do. But I'm not so sure about a lemon. We're gonna try & see how it goes.

(with Mom snickering at the keyboard!)

COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq said...

We will have to try lemons, ourselves. They look yummy!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh my, I can't believe what I'm seeing! Mitch actually can take lemons? Woh, his taste buds are not working or what?

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Lizzy said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch! I got your card the other day! I love it. Thank you so much!


Pinot and Angel Momo said...

hahaha Maggie and Mitch! My mouth is very watery now. Yes, I have licked lemons before and couldn't take it. It was SO sour!!!

Momo xoxo

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

I don't think that I would like lemons either but that Louie he will eat anything. He got in the trash the other day when mom was making French onion soup and he was actually trying to eat those onions. They made mom cry so how was he enjoying them??

Anonymous said...

Humm... I never have tried a lemon before. Knowing my track record, I would probably lick it, ha roo!

We got your card today! We LOVE it. WHat a great photo of you and Mitch!


William Tell said...

Mom cleans with lemon-scented stuff. Did the lemon make Mitch's breath smell fresh? His teeth sparkle? Or did he just pucker up? hee hee

Ruby Bleu said...

Woofs, Johann

Mojo, Digger and family said...

Careful, Mitch. You look like Yoda sucking on that lemon!

Haven't tried any lemons yet. Are they as nice as rabbit poo?


erin said...

I love this post about Maggie, Mitch, and the lemons! It's so funny! I wanted to see if Keeley would eat lemon but I don't have any. The most sour thing I've got around right now is grapefruit so I tried that and sure enough he ate it and he seemed to like it because he wanted more! Next time that I've got lemons in the house, I'll let Keeley try them and tell you what happens.
