Too many veggies...

Mom gave me a belly ache yesterday! She was making a salad and it was FILLED with things I love to eat; lettuce, sugar snap peas, cucumbers... And she was making potato salad on the side too. At first I didn't notice all the awesomeness in the kitchen. But then she came over to where I was napping on the couch and offered me a snap pea. MOM! That's AWESOME! I chomped that down very very quickly. After that, I was just sitting beside her on the floor in the kitchen, giving her little whimpers and rubbing her leg. She'd give me a little piece every now and then. But most of the scraps were going in the compost bin beside her on the floor. So of course I was diving in and stealing cucumber skin and wimpy lettuce. She thought I was mostly playing with them, so she let me do it. But of course I was nibbling while I threw them around and pounced on them!

Then I felt kinda queezy and gacked a little into the bin. Mom looked down, petted me and moved the bin out of my reach. And of course thanked me for doing that in a garbage bin. At that point I realized that that was a bad idea to eat out of the garbage pile. I went and napped on the table for a while, gave Mom the grumps when she tried to pet me later.

I am feeling better this morning, though! So I had a wild wild game of fetch and did a lot of jumping up to grab the fetch mouse toy out of the air. I like hiding in the bathroom and pouncing out at it from behind the door... Then Captain Morgan came and sat super super close to where the game was going on, and since I never want to accidentally clobber my Captain, I calmed down. Mom calls this the "Captain interference!" He does it now and then to stop fetch time and get the morning progressing. Since after fetch time is treat time, he gets super excited to end fetch and get his greenies. I won't eat those things! But the other guys love them!

So with Captain sitting there stopping fetch game, I ran into the kitchen and waited for my usual treat; VEGGIES! Mom gave me one tiny piece of potato and said "That's IT today, Sparks! You need to lay off the veggies till your tummy's better." I reluctantly agreed, and am back in the sun room with Captain watching the birdies... It's rough being the orange goat, sometimes. I just want to eat ALL THE VEGGIES!

I'm glad you're feeling better after over-eating the veggies, Sparkman. That's pretty funny that you like greens but not Greenies, though.

I love potato chips. Do those count as veggies?
