A pug's got to dream

I have a dream. I dream of a future in which we can move beyond the outdated breakfast/dinner paradigm. I dream of a world in which four meals a day is considered acceptable, in which four meals a day, in fact, is just the beginning. Who's to say that five meals are too many? Or six? I dream of a world of limitless possibilities, my flock. A world where a pug can eat dinner and then, five minutes later, go for an encore. Let us not just celebrate the successes of our daily lives, my flock, let us repeat them! I dream of a mother and father who do not coordinate their feedings, who do not ask one another, "Did you feed the pugs tonight?" I dream of parents who, instead, simply say, "The pugs look hungry." And then feed their furry children without a second thought. This, my flock, is the future we must all strive for. This is the dream yet unrealized, the promise yet unfulfilled. Yet this is no pipe dream. This dream is our destiny. And this, my flock, is why I am now going to go sit beside my food bowl once again.

Oh, Mugsy!!! Your dream is so GLORIOUS. It is our dream too! Gus, Milo, and Ellie the pugs.

Um ... your dream will catapult your breed away from the TOY GROUP category of canines. Which reminds me, I've never met a pug that is TOY SIZE unless by toy they meant a big tank ...

Honestly, Mugsy, do you have the self control necessary to keep from overeating and thus creating obesity and the associated health problems? Maybe your parents do know best in this particular situation.

Snort, yes we can!

That was the most beautiful dream I have ever heard Mugsy. Why stop there though? Why can't we eat human food as well for those six meals? My New Year's Resolution that a ribeye would fall on the ground and into my stomach this year hasn't come true yet...

Awwwww, Mugsy. How can your parents resist that face?!

Keep the faith, Gus, Milo and Ellie.

You make a reasonably good point, Z and JMG. But I am going to choose to ignore it at this time.

Yes we can, Harry Pugalicious!

I dream of no limits on our food intake, Lucy. And that includes food of the "human" designation.
