So today I went to my mother-in-law's to help out around the house by painting her master bath.

Every time I go there, she always has some great treats like cookies, cake, soda, etc and today was no different.

But I'm trying to watch my weight, so I ignored the cookies on the counter, or at least for the first few hours that is. I arrive around 11am and by 12:30 I was already feeling a little hungry, so when I went in the kitchen to grab the paint, I remembered the cookies on the counter.

Ya-know, the kind in the clear plastic container that look all fancy with icing or swirls. I decided to go for it, but there was only 1 left with icing and although I really wanted it, I left it and took two others.

I have to admit, they tasted OK, sorta bland and almost stale. But I was hungry, so this was at least something to nibble on before I got lunch.

Before I know it, a few hours passes and there is no way that I'll be getting lunch today, the bathroom is taking 3 coats of paint to cover the wood, despite using primer! So I go nibble on a 3rd cookie to hold me over til I'm done.

5pm rolls around and I am finished! I go to clean up and I see the cookies again; with my stomach growling I look over ever so tempted, but this will be #4 and that would be like 1/2 the box.

I ignore it for now and finish cleaning up. Ah, I know, I'l grab that cookie!
Oh wait, what's that say? WTF??? Canine Cookies?! Yes!!

Well it all makes sense now, that bland taste, that stale bite. In my rush to eat never noticed that I in fact ate 3, count'm 3 dog gourmet treats without knowing it.

Sorry Bear, I didn't mean to almost finish off your snacks.

On the plus side, I did get my 7% fiber, 15% crude fat, & 12% protein for the day.
