  1. The navy food wasn’t that bad, and you either ate it or you starved. They had a ship’s store where you could buy your own snack food items if you wanted.

    I had a tabby cat who would eat anything. He would try to steal the dog’s food until the dog bit him.

    I know what you are saying. When I was in the academy every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday scrambled eggs and hashbrowns were served on us. This went on for three months. The last three weeks i was there, I could only accept eating it for sustinence purposes and that I would otherwise be ravenously hungry by lunch. It was all I could bear to eat it.

    It took me nearly a year before I even fathomed eating either scrambled eggs or hashbrowns. Probably another before I actually wanted some.

    Somehow the WSCJTC managed decades later to actually make the academy’s cafeteria worse and the BLEA program 2 months longer.

    Nowadays the food there is so bland pepper-spray can’t flavor it.

  3. I hope after all of that they broke down and gave them a piece of the good stuff.

  4. Malisha,

    😀 Although I appreciate the music, my aversion to chicken and dumplings isn’t infidelity related. When I was in kindergarten, I went to a place (in the south) that served the dish at least three times a week. By the end of that year, I couldn’t even stand the smell of chicken and dumplings much less look at them. They still make a bit queasy.

  5. Speaking from experience, I would not go near any food with the name jerky attached to it.

  6. i’m with bettykath, the dude’s an a-hole. hope lambchop got a surprise in his shoes the next morning.

  7. Dumb a.. needs to learn to listen to his dog. That dog said NO at the get go. Respect that. I don’t see the humor in terrorizing a dog, even if it is something that he (not the dog) calls a “treat”.

  8. My grand-dog would eat lettuce leaves, but only after he broke their necks.

    Once we had a six-pound mutt. For a photo op, we got a big beef bone (about six pounds, 18″ long!) and roasted it. We got the camera out, put the beef bone down, and intended to photograph her attacking it in glee; she ran from it with her tail between her legs! We laughed ourselves silly, and she was mad at us and embarrassed. (We had to make it up to her with little dog biscuits in the shape of bones, 1″ long each.)

  9. Dip in bacon fat, he’ll eat it. When my kids were younger they were both making sandwiches for lunch. My daugher was making a turkey sandwich. As she put the mayo on her older brother said, “That’s the low-fat stuff, you got to put on twice as much!”

  10. Why do you humans call it “jerky”? Labradors are smart. Now a Beagle might eat that stuff.

  11. In the 90s and early 2000s, I owned a Dalmatian which would eat anything. When we lived in Florida, he delighted in carrying around the rotting shell-carcasses of road-kill gopher turtles when we’d go on walks, like they were some sort of mighty hunting trophy in his mouth. Dog was gross. But he got freaked out about lamb.

    I remember a time in 2001 when I smuggled some lamb chop bones from France — I always like to bring the pets a food souvenir from my final meals on an overseas trip, and I enjoy the challenge of breaking border control laws — and he reacted the same way this Lab did. Whined, barked at the bones, circled around them, looked fearful and disgusted at the same time. Similar reaction on other encounters with lamb leavings.

    It made me wonder whether, to some dogs, lamb smells like cooked dog meat. Their sensorium is not the same as ours. He was nervously terrified, and this was a dog that was fearless enough to go out of his way to fight full-grown raccoons. It seemed to set off an existential dread in him. Anyone here ever eaten Korean cooked dog? Does it taste lamb-y?
