acquiring pets late in life

My husband has never lived with a dog before.

We're dogsitting for my parents, and I said that, since I can't feed the cat (long story), I should be in charge of feeding the dog. One animal each. The husband agreed.

One day in...

I was in the shower, and the husband came in and asked "What does the dog have for breakfast?" Didn't know why he was asking, so I explained - at which point he turned to the kidlet and said "Okay, let's go feed the dog."

"Darling! The dog's already eaten."
"What? He can't have."
"He definitely has."
"But he's following me around, looking hungry."
"Yes. Because he's a dog."

I'm not entirely sure what he was expecting.

I laugh at dogs doing that! My cats are similar, to the point of "Cats have been fed don't let them fool you" messages being necessary.

He knows nothing of dogs. My dog looks like that while he's eating.

Happy Belated Birthday!!!!! I am so sorry I missed it!
