Tooth brush dogs

This was sent to me by my friend Karen who was my neighbour before I moved to the Palatial Granny Flat. She had a loveable dog, Bobbie by name. My cat just adored him, and we both still miss the little fellow who gave Karen so much love and companionship.

She assured me that she hadn’t touched the list with her bare fingers.

It’s pretty straightforward, easy to read, with no big mystery items. There are so many vegetables on the list; I wonder if they were able to find them all at the shop? And, I also wonder if borscht is on the menu for dinner tonight? But, I would have bought sour cream, if this was my list. That just finish the soup to perfection. Or, maybe they use natural yogurt for that purpose.

It seems that some pet dog is going to have his teeth brushed; what a nice owner it has. I just noticed the word ‘soft’ adjacent to that entry, probably to remind the shopper not to get a hard brush for Rover’s fangs. I don’t think they were going to look for soft beetroots.

I do covet the way the shopper makes the question marks. I hope there was coffee available today.

    • Hi, gorgeous. Thanks for the thoughtful message. Minx and I are doing well, but I may have worn a rut in the floor tiles with my frequent visits to the pantry! I have become such a sloth.

      Hugs to you and Cooper, but maybe Minx wouldn’t exactly hug Cooper, come to thimk of it. xxxx

    • They might take you up on that offer. I can’t even get a good look at Minx’s teeth, or maybe I should confess I’m too scared to tackle that, and leave it to the vet. ❀ xxx

  5. I might have thought this person was planning to make their own juice with all these ingredients, except they have juice on the list as well.

  6. The purchase was made at 4.23 in the afternoon. I was thinking – by the time the shopper got home would there still be time to make borscht for dinner that night? More importantly, does shopping so late in the day leave enough time for wine?

  7. I read the list before I read the post and I thought it was salt.

  8. Not much on the list so it’s possibly a top up list.
    My shopping lists often have more veg than this and I’m not a vegetarian. I love cabbage, either boiled, seasoned and buttered before serving or stir fried. Maybe the writer intended to cook a roast dinner and already had the meat.

    It doesn’t look like a soup list, no celery, leeks, nor mushrooms.

    Coffee?? I often write a question mark to remind myself to check the cupboard first.

    • There is more on that list than any of mine, Sue. Borscht uses all the edible ingredients listed there, and has perhaps inspired me to make some this weekend. It is so good as it ‘ages’ for a day or two.

      That was an extraordinary effort by the centenarian, raising so much money for the health system. He could help solve our country’s looming debt!

      • I knew Borscht was some sort of Eastern European dish, but I didn’t realise it was soup, in fact I never bothered to find out what it was, I don’t know of anyone here who eats it either, but doubtless the Eastern European community do.

        Captain Tom is inspirational! Thank you, Yvonne.

  9. True, that. Availability of coffee seems to have been a problem in the lockdown.


  10. Those are beautiful question marks.

  11. This is so funny to read – I just came off a video chat with my crafting friends (we usually meet up Thursday mornings in person). We were actually talking about cleaning cats and dogs teeth! (We don’t just stick to chat about who’s knitting what or sewing what!). A doggie owner says she’s just bought a canine toothpaste you just spray in her dogs mouths. We all agreed it sounded safer!

  12. The list maker is definitely making borscht today, and he/ she is a vegetarian, because there no meat for the soup. I hope his/ her dog likes the new brush.
    Do you know, we have only one word for he and she, the word hΓ€n. Γ„ is pronounced like a in a word lap.

    • That is so sensible, having one word for he or she. We seem to use a clumsy ‘they’ when we are unsure of the gender of the subject.

      It’s cool today, some borscht and home baked bread sounds appealing to me.

  13. I have sometimes found an old shopping list of mine discarded in a jacket pocket or afloat in the bottom of a bag…. and glancing through it wondered what some of those abbreviated reminders actually meant.

    Siddy has a toothbrush – and some doggie toothpaste – but man that is some show to try and get the brush onto his teeth and gums while he is intent on chewing and licking/ The vet advised me to clean ’em else there could be issues I did have a go once – the following year the same vet checked and pronounced his teeth are in excellent condition. I take it one try annually and he’s good to go.

    • I guess it’s a reflection on the far too civilised existence our dogs and cats lead, that they are prone to (expensive) dental problems.

      I had a good chuckle thinking of the peppy experience of trying to brush Siddey’s teeeth.


  14. It would be a brave person who used a hard tooth brush on canines
