Mr. Faris had been ill for many months we all became increasingly
aware that he needed 'special care'. Because of this we did not
push and shove him each time he decided that he needed about
half an hour to eat a meal that he would have polished off in
two minutes in his prime. We also stood back to allow him to
eat by 'accepting' half of the food from the plates of the TwoLegs
when he decided that was all that he could possibly fancy at
that moment in time. I am sure that Mr. Faris appreciated these
considerations - even if his only acknowledgement was to growl
at the rest of us if we got too close when the TwoLegs were eating
have to admit that there has been one ongoing bonus from this
prolonged stressful situtation. As Mr. Faris became increasing
choosy over what was allowed to pass his lips the standard
of living of the other four of us increased exponentially!
And since his passing it has become obvious that there is so
much food just waiting for our attention - in such a wide variety
of makes and types - that we will be feasting for months to
come. So the benefits of the distribution of his 'estate' could
be significant. In fact I did hear Mopps say to KennelMan the
other evening 'Just you be careful with the amount of food
that you are putting in their bowls. Just because it 'belonged'
to Mr. Faris does not make it non fattening!!'
four all miss you Mr. Faris, far more than an unassuming gentle-man
like yourself could ever imagine. And we dont know what the
TwoLegs are going to do with their time now that most of it
is not spent trying to either get you to eat what was on offer
(from any source in the house) or when that became impossible
scouring the shops/countryside searching for anything at all
(no expense spared) that you were prepared to eat.
