Licking the Plate Clean

Picnik collage

Walter is not supposed to have people food, but we flout this rule in the morning when I let Walter lick the leftover milk in my cereal bowl. This system has worked well for us – perhaps too well! I found out that if George saw a bowl on the counter, he put it back in the cabinet thinking it was clean. He’d been doing this for who knows how long until he finally noticed a tongue smudge in a bowl he was putting away. Talk about a closed loop!
