‘Quizz just isn’t doing his job any more.’ Was the unexpected comment from from my mother on the way to see a movie.
‘He isn’t picking up food from the floor the way he use to when he was younger.’
Unable to take my eyes off the road, I snorted. ‘Well, maybe you aren’t dropping quality stuff.’
‘Or maybe he finally grew tastebuds!’
‘There is that too!’ Laughing at the conversation. ‘He does have a discriminating palate.’
‘We just might have to get another dog who is young enough to not have developed tastebuds yet.’
Silence in the car.
