Apple or Cheese....Which Would You Choose?









**Note from Nala's Mom**
We were just having a snack and of course Nala wanted some so I gave her a piece of apple and she gobbled it up. Then I gave her a piece of cheese and an apple and she only ate the cheese. We continued to try and get her to eat the apple before we gave her another piece of cheese but she was holding out for the "good stuff" now that she knew we had it. :) Every time we gave her the apple she moved it around in her mouth a bit then spit it out and looked at us with those big brown eyes asking for a piece of cheese instead. So, I put a piece of cheese and an apple down for her to choose from and of course that was a no brainer....she went straight for the cheese and left the apple. Not being satisfied she checked our plates to see if there was any cheese left and when she realized they were empty she sniffed the apple, walked away, and then finally came back and ate it. What a spoiled girl but it provided us with a good laugh. :)

Oh - he he he! Love it - Nala is a girl afer our own heart! When we know cheese is a potential offering no other snack gets a look-in either! Tail wags - JD and Max.

Both, of course -- but the cheese first, just like Nala did.

Rufus, Indie (and Anita) said...

I would choose cheese, of course! But Indie is not a cheese fan so she would eat the apple! Cheese...YAM!

CHEEESE OF COURSE!! A piece of apple is too healthy.. ;)

Forgot to mention that they have actually tried to make Downtown LA more hip, with nice loft apartments etc. Still, there's mostly businesses and homeless people down there but I believe in due time it will change. It has potential, for sure. We used to live close to the ocean which was fabulous especially during the summer months. It never got too hot there, while Downtown LA would be hot like an oven. :(

Anyhow, have a fantastic weekend!

LOL...all of our dogs have this middle name:

Will Work For Cheese

Apples happily accepted, but only in the absence of cheese. Good girl, Nala.

The OP Pack said...

No doubt about it, we would go for the cheese first. But maybe if you wrapped the apple in the cheese, you might be able to trick her.

Woos, the OP Pack

Perhaps some cheddar topped apple pie is in order :)

Ruby and Penny said...

We would choose the cheese. No apples for us. The closest we get to eating fruit is fruit flavoured yogurt.
Love Ruby & Penny

The Army of Four said...

Ooh. That cheddar-topped apple pie sounds good!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ha! Ha! Good choice, Nala! I would have done the same as you - although I'm not really supposed to eat cheese or yoghurt or stuff like that coz I'm "dairy intolerant" which I think means that I get runny poo everytime I eat them! Yuck!

I love the photos and the way they show you sniffing each piece and carefully making your choice!

Slobbers,

Maggie and Mitch said...

Can I please have the apple, Nala? Apples are my very favorite!
Maggie would have probably gone for the cheese first too!

Yer friend,
Mitch

Mango said...

Cheese of course. Though I is partial to apple too.

Lois Lane/Laney said...

Cheese! I don't blame you. I do the same thing.

Sheba's human said...

Note from Sheba's human:
Sheba would do the same thing! But she would be choosing cheese over a piece of mango. When there's no cheese around, she loves mango! :-) I got a good laugh out of this one!

mum of critters said...

That's just fantastic! I love animals!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I would have definitely picked both. We have an apple tree in our backyard and last summer, Mom trained Kat so that Kat would bring her an apple and Mom would give Kat a treat and take the apple. The apples were brown and yucky, so Mom just threw them in the yard cart. I tried to eat the apples AND get a treat, but Mom said it didn't work like that.
