This story was shared by another canine, Hector Dos (the second Hector). Here’s what he said.
“I’d like to thank the Crafty Canine for letting me tell my story. It’s about a topic that’s always been dear to me. Food.
I’m a ten-year-old English black lab. I live with my sister, who’s also a lab but she’s only six. I keep telling her how I used to get three meals a day instead of just two, like we get now. She doesn’t believe me, but it’s true.
When I was just a few weeks old, I started getting real dog food. At nine weeks, I found my forever home and they not only gave me breakfast and dinner, but lunch too!
This three-meals-a-day routine lasted for just a brief time. And then BLASTO! Something happened and all I got was breakfast and dinner. Lunch disappeared.
When my sister, who was only three-years-old at the time, came to live with us, I hoped lunch would return. But it didn’t. My humans said it was because she didn’t need three meals a day like a puppy did. So I had to get used to eating just those two meals.
My sister doesn’t believe that I ever got three meals. But I really did. Every single day.”
