You can’t imagine what arrived in today’s post. It was the first time that Mali and me got mail, and even something very big…
A delicious fragance evaporated from the packet. Despite seeing OUR names on the envelope, Alpha Su took it out of my mouth and opened it.
“This is for you, from Julchen in Vienna”, she said (as if I hadn’t seen it), sounding very excited. My saliva started already to drip. With such a smell, I just can’t control myself. Mali tried to jump on Alpha Su’s lap as she does when she wants to be superior to me. Su shook her off.
The envelope contained two awesome cloth bags and a sweet letter from Julchen. I must admit, I was hardly able to concentrate on her letter. This overwhelming smell from the bags nearly knocked me off…
And they proved to be a wonderful surprise: they were full of exquisite dog biscuits!
Now can you imagine what kind of self control was imposed on us poor creatures in order to take these silly photos? Humans have a strange perception of “being civilised”. I would have swallowed the lot straight away. But no way….
Oh dear… Now I know what suffering means.
Look at these awesome creatures. Julchen didn’t know their exact flavours, but I don’t bother – they are just yummy!
We were each given just a very controlled quantity of, maybe four (!) biscuits. Alpha su told us they were too expensive to be eaten in one gulp, ’cause they are from Vienna, and they came via airmail. (So what?)
To torture me, she then decorated me with my bag in a way that I could just smell the goodies without reaching them. Now I know what a St Bernhards must feel like, with all that Cognac around his neck…
There they are… We were told, we’ll have some more before going to bed. How can humans be so cruel? And pretend that they love us???
In case any of you would like to try these Austrian delights, I can give you the address of the bakery. (Not of Julchen’s, of course – that’s TOP SECRET!)
