Hardly Seems Worth the Effort

As I hold a spoon crusted over with garlic cheese grits for Mabel to lick... and lick and lick and...

It occurs to me, she's burning more calories licking that spoon than she will take in from the little bit of food she scrapes off it. And still she licks.

Hey, haven't you ever kept licking a spoon that had ice cream in it even though the ice cream was gone? Maybe it's the same for dogs!
