Thinking I’m the smart one, I secretly gave Charlie the last coveted chicken chewy bone from Trader Joe’s, leaving the almost as popular (last) $3 Bully Stick for Jake.
Sidebar: Every now and then, Charlie needs to win;)
They both went their separate ways and I went back to the computer.
Two minutes later, Jake was at my side balling me out with such conviction … I actually heard a few swear words come out.
I’ll publicly admit to having a game of verbal volleyball with him, to diffuse his disgust, and all the while we just needed to wait until Charlie surrendered his treasure like he always does 😉
