I've been had...

Duped. Tricked. Fooled. Bamboozled. Misled. Outfoxed. Outdogged and Outcatted.

Why you ask...well tonight Mom came home with a surprise. She said...

Ruby's Mom: Ruby, I have a surprise for you!
Ruby: You do! Woo Hoo...what is it? Huh, come on, show me...
Ruby's Mom: It's corn!
Ruby: Corn?
Ruby's Mom: Yep, corn!

So I started thinking...corn...
Corn like this?
Or corn like this?

You see a long time ago my Mom stopped giving me stuff (aka my kibble) with corn in it because she said it made me crazy. (Ruby's Mom: Corn = Sugar = Crazy Ruby! Ruby: Thanks for that odd math lesson Mom)

Anyhowl, imagine my surprise when all of a sudden she said I'm getting some corn. But instead of this corn...I get this corn...

This doesn't smell anything like corn! *Snif, snif, snif*...I know that smell, what is it, um it's *snif*...B*A*C*O*N!!!! OMdOG it's bacon corn...this smells wonderful. Let me try it out...
Ahhhh...a nice smokey bacony corny flavor all rolled into one. Hey wait a minute, this looks familiar...where have I seen this before...
That's right, Joe! That's his special corn. The one he hides from Tanner with...oh, wait...no, Mom...did you take Joe's corn? Oh, he won't like that...it's bad enough Tanner takes it. What's that Mom...it's MY corn. Yay, my very own smokey bacony cornycob that I can have all to myself??? Yipee!!! OK, sometimes it's ok to be fooled by an imitation.

I love my corn...

dog, that corn sounds so dang good my tongue is hanging out and the drool is relentless. how tricksy of your mom, though, to give you bacon disguised as corn. I think she's been getting ideas from tad's massah and might be up to something. better keep your sniffing in top form!

and by the way, your pictures are cuter than ever!!!!! that chewy sideways glance is classic!!!!

wiggles and licks, coco

Hey Ruby,
Are you going to make it into a corn shank too? It does look yummy...Mom saw it at a petshop but she says it's too expensive. Sheesh.

Ruby Bug!

You look like you're wrasslin' a corn snake (and it looks like the snake is going to be swallowed whole).

That's a very fine photo of you at the end. I love the way your whispy whiskers fan out from your snout, the pinkish hue around your nose, and the fierce look of concentration that shows you mean business. (*sigh*) Wish I could nibble your corn from the other end and meet in the middle.

Your goober,

Enjoy your Corn Ruby...just don't make it into a corn shank like Tanner did! Your Mom might get scared of what you may do with it in the night & take it away!!!

Chew both sides equally!

your chewing coach,

omdog ruby isnt that the best chewy toy EVER! please dont make it into a shank, just eat it like a normal boston would. Tanner doesnt know that mom just bought us a new corn too, its in the closet waiting until he eats the heck out of the old one.

Peanut said... 3:53 AM

I want one of those corn but my mom says she doesn't think it would hold up well. You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Lucky

Suki said... 4:26 AM

OK, I SO need one of those, now. I've checked it out at Petsmart before, but since I'm not a huge fan of chewy stuff, Mom hasn't bought it for me.

But since my BFF likes it, I know I will, too :)

Puggy kisses

Our Mom saw Joey's corn on his blog too and bought us one. It fast became our favorite chew toy. We have never liked chew toys before we got our corn but we sure love that corn cob. Looks like you are enjoying yours too.

Have fun. Love, Seadra and Zoe

Corn and bacon are good each other. And, the thing to add butter is my favorite dish. :)

from loved ume tyan and corning.

wally said... 6:51 AM

Yay corn! I have one of those but it is only used for football photo-ops (for the Cornhuskers) because I've never liked chewing on anything that wasn't previously alive. True story. Well, except for Greenies but I would barf those up. Oops--too much info.

Enjoy your corn! Are you a Cornhuskers fan like me now?


fig said... 7:28 AM

Oh we LOVE ours! Except IT is making a corn shank too. I think he secretly idolizes Tanner. *sigh* I'm in trouble.

Duke & Gidget said... 8:02 AM

Yum! We love corn. We didn't realize that was what was making us all crazy though. Now that we know, our parents will probably have to get us one of those bacon corn thingies too.

I'm glad you're enjoying your bacon corn, Ruby. Mom & Dad bought me one for my birthday and it was yum! yum! yummy!

Frasypoo said... 12:34 PM

I want one of those....I was drooling looking at you Ruby

Sophie Brador said... 12:43 PM

What's with all the corn shanks? Are you guys planning a prison break?

Lorenza said... 7:42 PM

Hi, Ruby.
Looks like you really are enjoying your corn! Is it tasty??
Your mom is great!
Have a good night
