DiMamma’s Lasagna

We interrupt regular our Yalu blog to bring you another thrilling story about a puppy dog I once knew. The puppy dog in question was a Golden Retriever named Chelsea and she loved DiMamma’s cooking.

DiMamma's Lasagna

DiMamma’s Lasagna

One of DiMamma’s specialties was lasagna. This was not store lasagna. DiMamma cooked this from scratch.

 

One day, DiMamma cooked a lasagna in a tin pan. When the buzzer blew, she took this fine creation out of the oven and let it cool on top of the stove. Usually, the completed lasagna would be immediately consumed. That was when something happened.

DiMamma's Lasagna

Time passed—a whole lot of time. People in the house left to do other things leaving a guard dog named Chelsea in charge. Doing so proved to be monumental people mistake.

All Chelsea wanted to do was enjoy just little bit of lasagna. With no one around, she managed to get the tin pan full of cooked lasagna down from the stove.

Now what? People could come back at any moment. Chelsea had to make a decision. She moved the lasagna to a super secret location. The next problem was how much of DiMamma’s lasagna to try. One bite was good. Two bites were even better. Once she started eating, there was no stopping—DiMamma’s lasagna was soooo yummy.

More time passed. The lasagna remained hidden. People come back to the house. Everything seemed fine until someone asked, “Where’s the lasagna?”

People checked the inside side of the oven and found nothing. Maybe someone put the pan in the refrigerator—nope, nothing there.

DiMamma questioned people. No one knew what happened to diner. Meanwhile, a Golden Retriever puppy dog named Chelsea sat on the couch, her head down with a quiet look on her face. No one would possible suspect her.

Five days pass. Conversations about the missing lasagna continued. DiMamma started getting upset about the missing food she made. Unable to bear the guilt a moment longer,

Chelsea ran out of the room and carried back an empty tin pan which she placed on the couch. At least she confessed. Even more interesting, she knew what we were talking about.

The Puppy Palace

The Puppy Palace

The Puppy Palace

Most puppy dogs would be happy living in a simple dog house they could crawl into and call their own. Give the puppy dog a few old blankets and a pillow to make their dog house a little more comfortable and the average woof-woof would be content.

The Puppy Palace

The Puppy Palace

Yalu was not an average puppy dog. She expected more, much more for her living arrangements. Yalu lived in her very own dog house otherwise also known as the puppy palace.

The Puppy Palace

She needed plenty of space to stretch her legs. After getting beyond the puppy prison phase of her life, there is a very important blog about puppy prison worthy of your time, Yalu lounged on a comfortable couch or upon the lap of one of her people persons.

As an added benefit, Yalu was an official puppy palace bed tester who made sure her people persons slept in comfort within the confines of her estate.

Yalu was nice enough to let her people persons live inside the puppy palace with her—making them stay outside would be mean. In all honesty, she needed the staff inside her puppy palace to do important jobs like making her dinner, distributing puppy treats and delivering plenty of petties.

Another important benefit of allowing people persons to stay within the puppy palace was their ability to open cans. An interesting fact: puppy dogs cannot open cans without the help of people.

Yummy Raspberry Crème Pastries

 

Once upon a time, there was a prancing princess puppy who adored a product called Raspberry Crème pastries. What are Raspberry Crème pastries? They are without a doubt the greatest pastry products ever created by Sara Lee—oh and when you, kind reader, say Raspberry Crème pastry you have to roll the “R” so it sounds fancy schmancy.

When offered one of the yummy Raspberry Crème pastries, Yalu swallowed it whole without the benefit of chewing. If she forgot what the pastry tasted like, she would lick the wrapper until there was no smell left to sniff.

Yalu preferred these pastries to conventional doggie treats. When offered the choice of a Raspberry Crème pastry or a few Snausages, the Raspberry Crème pastry won paws down—she could eat the Snausages later.

Keep in mind, Raspberry Crème pastries were not the perfect treat. For starters, the portions were too small and Yalu was only offered one. The next problem was that her people persons kept the Raspberry Crème pastries on the top shelf of the pantry. How could her people persons put something so yummy on the top shelf where a prancing princess puppy could not reach them?

When she wanted a Raspberry Crème pastry, Yalu would sit in front of the pantry door looking, staring with yearning puppy dog eyes upward while focusing her Jedi puppy dog mind control to get a people person to do her bidding.

Most dogs would give up, not Yalu. She was a determined puppy dog who used her superior mind control powers for good, her good. Once she consumed a Raspberry Crème pastry and licked the smell off the wrapper, all was good in her world.

Then there was another strange occurrence. When Yalu got petted her tummy felt very cold. Maybe she ate lots and lots of ice before showing up. Perhaps she sat on a big bag of ice to escape the heat.

Yalu adored her Frosty Paws. She knew what the packaging looked like. Upon seeing a Frosty Paws, Yalu would immediately stop what she was doing and come to a patient sitting position before the person holding her yummy treat. There would be no tail wagging. Only an intense stare as if that Frosty Paws cup was the last one in the whole wide world and Yalu wanted it.

Receiving her treat, she would scamper off to a private puppy dog place. Once there, she would sit and begin a reverent series of licks.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

 

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

When we last left our heroine, Yalu was forced to make weekly Saturday morning visits to the dog gym. This was the place where mean and vicious woof woofs gathered to chase our sweet kindhearted prancing princess puppy.

Yalu was forced to visit this terrible, terrible, terrible place by people who should have known better. She had been chased inside the building by mean and vicious woof woofs.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

She had been chased in the fenced off part of the building by mean and vicious woof woofs.

Her only places of refuge were inside the building where the baby puppies gathered to yip at each other and long sniffy trips outside the dog gym parking lot.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

On this Saturday visit DiMamma accompanied Yalu to the dog gym. Who was DiMamma? She was the top dog. DiManna sat in a chair inside the dog gym while more mean and vicious woof woofs came with their parents to “socialize” with other dogs.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

Once again, Yalu found herself chosen by the “woofpack” to be it. The chase was on. When Yalu ran to one side of the gym, the mean and vicious woof woofs chased her. When Yalu ran to the other side of the gym, the mean and vicious woof woofs pursued her.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

Yalu saw DiMamma. She ran to her. The mean and vicious woof woofs stayed a few paces back. They knew better than to mess with the DiMamma.

One of the dog gym employees decided to add her two cents by saying to DiMamma, “Ooh, you should let your dog run free and socialize with the other dogs.”

This dog gym employee clearly needed a demonstration of DiMamma’s awesome powers. “Don’t you tell me how to take care of my dog,” DiMamma told her.

That took care of the dog gym employee.

The mean and vicious woof woofs decided to elect another dog as being it and gave chase. Yalu stayed with DiMamma–her top dog.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

From that day onward, a certain prancing princess puppy had better ways to spend her Saturdays. By order of DiMamma, Yalu would no longer attend the dog gym. She could play ball outside her puppy palace, go for car rides, and take walkies. This made for a happy Yalu.

The Dog Gym Part III Enter DiMamma

You, kind reader, should find what kind of adventures Yalu has had. In Yalu And The Puppy Room, she learned to overcome rejection and chose her own forever home.
