Not Food

We were just on the phone with GPop's sister last night. GPop's parents are in the sunny south visiting relatives. Sister tells us that GPop's parents were at younger Aunt Wild's house for a party. Aunt Wild has those endearing eccentricities that show up somewhere in every family. Aunt Wild puts the dog's food in table china, because she "doesn't like the way dog dishes look." Aunt Wild asked GPop's mom to put the dog dish on the island in the kitchen so they wouldn't step on it while they were preparing for the party.

A guest showed up early. From what I gather, this guest was one of those folks you invite only because she is part of the social circle, not because you want to visit with the person. After a few moments, Aunt Wild caught Mom's eye with one of those "look over there" glances. Mom looked and saw the guest eating the dog food. They tried to distract the woman to no avail. The only way they finally got the woman to stop eating "these nuts" was to tell her they didn't have any more.

Now I'm dying to know what type of dog food they buy.

I'm guessing that it is not Bil-Jac.
