Wilma Wednesday: Barf

“I want my lunch treat, Lady.”

“Wilma, you just had your cheesy pills. It’s not time for—”

“—’Scuse me, I’m going to barf.”

“Oh—” I decide not to ask for details because I don’t think she could answer at the moment. Finally, she finishes and looks up at me. I’m concerned. “What’s wrong, Wilma?”


She’s been in the back yard since her walk this morning. If a clementine fell from the tree, I don’t think she’d eat it. There’s not much else except…I look at the barf. “Did you eat mulch, Wilma?”

“No. I don’t know. Maybe. What is mulch?”

“Sticks and dirt and leaves.” We both look at the barf. It’s sticks and dirt and leaves.

“Wilma, If you don’t know what it is, why do you eat it?”

“To find out.”

Dog logic is so…logical.

    well, duh! lol….. I have a feeling kids and teens would give u the same answer as well… 🙂
    or dare I say, they do it for the attention? (hope not)

      I’m sure Wilma can choose when to barf and when not to barf, for whatever her reasons might be!

    Oh barf, Wilma! Please don’t do that anymore! I’m sure you get enough doggy food made just for you!

      I’ll never understand why a dog will eat garbage she finds on the street and turn up her nose at a slice of apple.

    A good barf solves a multitude of upsets! Watson likes rabbit poop but hasn’t barfed it…yet!
    Choose treats carefully Wilma.

      Before Wilma, I’d never known a dog who chose treats carefully. Wilma likes some things that are good for her, but she has a special place in her heart and tummy for very bad “treats.”

    To find out. It explains a lot, doesn’t it?

    • Petrea - January 24, 2018 @ 16:08

      I think it tells me as much about Wilma as it does about dogs in general!

    Count you blessings Petrea…she could have been eating poop…

    • Petrea - January 24, 2018 @ 16:09

      You’ve got me there. I’m grateful she has a penchant for garbage of the unused food kind.

    Curiosity killed the cat and made the dog…upchuck.

    • Petrea - January 25, 2018 @ 07:59

      Hee hee! Just so long as it doesn’t kill her.

    I’m on the ‘thank heavens it wasn’t poo’ train … though frankly that might have gone down more easily. Euww.

    • Petrea - January 29, 2018 @ 10:46

      Euww is right! But mulch does have a lot of fiber.
