I took this shot the other day after giving my lunch plate to Wilbur to clean up. Alayne and I had enjoyed egg salad sandwiches for lunch, and I had some left over that I knew he'd love to lick up. Because of the lensectomy we had to do to save the vision in his remaining eye, he is very far-sighted -- and often doesn't know when things are right in front of him. So after licking up some of the egg salad, he thought he was done -- and didn't realize there was still a bit more on the plate. Hence the look he was giving me. I got back down on the floor and pointed to the egg salad still on the plate. "Oh, there it is!" Pretty soon I had a nice, clean plate. And a happier Wilbur.
Sometimes when I hand him a morsel from our meals, he doesn't realize there's food in front of his mouth until he smells it -- literally under his nose. Then the little mouth with only six teeth and one long tongue opens, and the morsel is gone.
