Why Dogs and Food?

Why Dogs and Food?

It's simple. Write about what you love. And what is better than dogs and food? If you are anything like me - and millions of other people - you will relate to and understand the unwavering love I have for my dogs and my passion for cooking - and eating - great food. I hope you will enjoy reading about my day to day experiences with good food and a couple of very special dogs.

Thanks for visiting.

And the Winner Is.........


With 9 out of 10 correct Oscar picks!

Okay, to be honest, when Brian and I were making our Oscar picks, I asked Brian which dog he wanted to partner with and he picked Henry. So, Walter partnered with me.

When we went for our afternoon romp at Blackie’s Pasture, Henry secretly told me he would have rather partnered with me because he thought my picks were winners. Hee hee. And yes, thank you very much, clever Henry was correct! The only category Walter and I guessed wrong was the Oscar for Best Cinematography. Not too shabby, eh?

But Henry and his dad did get 3 out of 10 correct because they were smart enough to agree with me on Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Animated Film. Am I gloating? You betcha!

Truth be known, all of my picks were pure guesses because we rarely go to the theatre to see the films before the Academy Awards. Maybe I should go to Vegas!

On another note, despite guessing most of the wins, this particular Academy Awards production was pretty boring in my opinion. There was barely any good entertainment. Maybe the folks in Hollywood didn’t want the fanfare in the face of this economic storm. I kind of like the elaborate productions though. Perhaps things will look up next year.

Congratulations, Walter! I am very impressed with your choices. Too bad you didn't go to an Academy Award party where everyone bets in a pool. You would've cleaned up!

I was imagining an after-Oscar show - Walter & Henry at the Movies, just like Siskel & Ebert. Ha!

I thought this year's show was really boring too, but I was at my crazy cousins and everyone was really loud so I missed most of it anyhow. Next year I'm staying home!

Our apartment complex was supposed to have a big Oscar party at the clubhouse but I think someone broke in and stole the TV or something as it was canceled. They said we could still enter our ballot with our Oscar picks to win a prize but I didn't enter the contest and I should have! I could have been a contender! Oh well. So much for Oscar parties, right?
