Barn's Banana Face!

Hi everyone, I would like to apologise in advance if you all think I have gone mad, but I just wanted to share this with you. Today I was chopping up some banana in the kitchen and as usual my boy Barnaby was standing next to me in anticipation of receiving a treat of some yummy human food. I turned to him and said "you won't like it", I then gave him a small piece of banana, the face he pulled was priceless, taking into account this dog has eaten all manner of things in his twelve years. I swear he opened his mouth and said "YUCK". Sorry if this sounds silly but it really was a golden moment!.

My Maggie (RIP) loved bananas, I swear she would be sleeping in another part of the house and could hear me peeling a banana!

That's funny! Bentley would learn to ballroom dance for a whole banana LOL (of course he would do that for any food!)

Heaven forbid Bear sees bananas in the grocery bag, I swear he's doing backflips in anticipation.

Oh I completely understand................Kynkade doesn't like bananas either. He always wants some and then abruptly spits it out . His sister, Hunter, is always standing by to snatch up what Kynkade doesn't like.

Warmly,
Sarah and my Golden R's and Boston T's

Zeke had the same opinion of bananas. Zoe will sometimes eat a small piece, sometimes drop it on the floor.

Awwww what a cute story. Poor Barnaby was hoping for steak!

Cody loves banana but one time I handed him a green bean and I swear he said, "POOEY" as he spit it out.

A couple of years ago, my Summer was sound asleep in my recliner two rooms away when I started to eat a banana. By the time I got down to the last couple of bites, here's Summer sitting in front of me waiting for her bite.

Brandy(RIP) was the same way. It's been years since I've been able to have a whole banana to myself.
