The princess loves her little brother (the dog). One of her favorite things to do is to sit with cubes of cheese and some crackers and make herself a cheese and cracker sandwich.
Oh, and she also likes to share this with the dog. He sits and waits patiently while she doles out little pieces of cheese. Remember, this is the dog that snatched a HUGE piece of turkey off the table a few Thanksgivings ago.
She takes a bite of cracker sandwich then gives a little cracker sandwich to the dog. He'd rather not eat the cracker, but she insists: Eat the cracker boy. She won't give him more cheese until he eats the cracker. He doesn't want the cracker, he wants the cheese; but somehow he knows that there won't be more cheese without the cracker.
So, he eats the cracker.
The princess insists that the dog likes saltines the best. I'm not sure that's the case. The princess prefers saltines; I think the dog prefers goldfish crackers.
Oh, well, I'm not the one with the doggie tea party.
