  3. Oh my goodness, thanks for that video! It was so nice to see the dogs "in person", so to speak. They are all adorable! And your kitchen floor is so clean, LOL! Mine always seems to be covered with long dog hair, no matter how often I sweep :(

  4. It is wonderful to meet your family. They are very polite and wait their turn. You have trained them well, John.

  7. Do they have to be Swedish? I'm a big fan of Italian meatballs myself.

  8. Cute! They're very well behaved. I thought it would be a mad scramble!

  9. Hang on, George was there first so how come he got his last? Or had you sneaked a meatball to him before you shot the video?

  10. Awwww everyone waited so patiently. Sweet.

  11. Why was George last? He was in there first ... Poor George, he's the black [sheep] dog of the family, it seems.
    Jill just has to hear anything 'food' and she comes to sit with those sad brown eyes.

    1. I am strict with the pecking order in which they are fed.
      William as pack leader is always fed first. George who is the most subservient dog is always Fed last
      It stops any confusion

      Delete
    2. William is pack leader? I thought it was Albert? ;)
      George is a love. They are all so cute. And it was nice to get a "live" shot of the kitchen. Thank you!!

  12. It was lovely to see them all and for the record you sound exactly how I thought you would! Thanks for sharing the video.

  13. They are so well behaved. Little lambs all lined up for their treat, no pushing or shoving, just waiting their turn.

  14. Winnie's a warrior. Check your fingernails, John. Are they all there?

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a beautiful voice you have, John Gray!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I second the great voice comment. Cute dogs, nice kitchen. Do the dogs like Ikea meatballs?

    ReplyDelete
  17. How polite they all are, waiting their turn. We can't even get the human residents here at the senior complex to do that -- not bum rush the table, wait their turn, on Pizza Tuesdays. Next time you're in the states, maybe you'll give us some pointers. LOL.

  18. Goodness I'm in love - no, not with you John, with the doggies of course! Of course I'd still hug YOU too given half a chance!

  20. I hope Albert got a treat as well.

    1. Wisely he keeps out of the way when food is around

      Delete
    2. I hope you gave him a treat on his own.

  21. So great to see your dogs in action and to hear you. I’m so impressed that there’s no milling about, snarking at each other - I’d like to hug each one!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Brilliant turn taking. Well trained by their pack leader. Hopefully you ate one first to check they were ok .

    ReplyDelete

    1. I did eat one , but to reinforce my position as leader

      Delete
  23. All good dogs! Heckin' good dogs...

    ReplyDelete
  24. You've got them well drilled. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'd be like those dogs. I love 'em!

    ReplyDelete
  26. And the big slurp from Winnie. They are really well behaved. My daughter has a french bulldog who is called Eddie meatballs. Besides looking like a extra on the Sopranos, you can guess his favourite treat.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What a bright and well-behaved little troupe -- at least for meatballs. Oh and... so that's what your voice sounds like!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You make my heart smile. It's just like being in Pat and Ann's kitchen. Dogs called one by one, assembling in their assigned place and waiting for their bowl of food to be delivered. Or, treat, as the case may be.

    1. I just went back and read previous comments. I need to remark you and Pat are very physically alike, and leaders of quite a dog pack. I've seen upwards of ten and more around him at once. I asked how he maintained leadership and he said he pees highest on the vegetation.

  29. I love your voice too! Well behaved dogs. My 2 are quite good when treats are being offered. They know where to stand and who is first!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Exactly as it is in our house but with cocktail sausages ... and now sadly only two dogs and a slightly curious cat.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a beautiful and obedient pack you have, but Winnie has stolen my heart (like she almost stole you fingers!). Lovely to see them all on video.

    1. She steams into a room like a galleon in full sail

  32. They have such good manners! I love them all!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I thought you were going to shout "SIT" first. Would they do it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I too expected them to sit before getting treats, or being fed.

      Delete
  34. What well behaved dogs! Hope there was a meatball for Albert too.

  35. We're heading for something
    Somewhere I've never been
    Sometimes I am frightened
    But I'm ready to learn
    Of the power of meaty balls
    Ooh, the power of meaty balls!

  36. John that was delightful.

  37. Your dogs are delightful. I love the skittering sound of claws on the new floor, it is the epitome of an excited dog noise to me!

    1. Now you can see just why I ordered vinyl rather than have the floor tiled

    2. Oh yes, and crockery bounces on vinyl! ;-)

  41. Wonderful ! Wonderful ! Wonderful !
    Loved seeing them all together.
    George should have gotten his first as here was sitting so nicely!
    All I have to say is Chicken or Cookie and they come running.

    Lovely post today, thank you

  47. Lovely to see the family. Your voice sounds just as I expected it would!

  48. I taught our dogs to sit before their food bowls were placed in front of them. Always a wise precaution when we had three ever-hungry Labradors !
    Lovely to see the gorgeous Winnie !

  49. I think you might break the internet with that video. I love them all.
