I know it drives Mom and Dad crazy, but I still really like to snack on the "street treats" Jake and I can find in our neighborhood. Since we live by a school, there's always a ton of really good stuff from kids' lunches lying around. The other day Mom caught me with half a cheese sandwich hanging out of my mouth. She made me give it back to the sidewalk before I could get a good bite out of it. Darn.
Cheese sandwiches are a great find, but they're not nearly as good as the booty I almost got away with last night. There it was lying by the curb. Easy, Fargus! Don't let anybody see it, I thought. And then I had it! It was in my mouth, and its deliciousness was almost too much to bear! I kept my head down so no one would see my wonderful prize.
I'd made it across the street and kept walking, but as we turned the corner... BUSTED. When Mom called my name, I knew she'd seen the delicious pork rib sticking straight out of my mouth. She took it away, and I was no longer "Fargus the Great Rhinoceros." I was "Fargus, Don't Eat Off the Street!" Again. Double darn.
Goodbye, sweet pork rib. Fargus misses you.
