When food and play collide


Maeve loves to eat. She also loves her toys. Two worlds collided one night while playing fetch. Abominable (her favorite abominable snowman toy) landed on her bright orange IKEA dinner bowl. He lay over it like he had partied too much and thought it was the bathroom. Her love of food and toys combining must be too much. For some reason, she cannot pull off any toy that lands on her food bowl.

This is baffling. I mean, she sticks her face in that thing twice a day. Abominable laying there shouldn't make any difference. Just like food, Abominable goes in her mouth.

She walks up to the bowl, barks, looks at me, and skitters away. I don't know if she's playing me and being lazy, or if she simply cannot handle it.
