Today we made our boys a plate for supper. We cut sirloin tip roast, warmed it up, and lined the plate with lettuce leaves.
They trotted toward their dinner plate, sniffed a bit...then they each grabbed a piece of lettuce and ran and hid so they could feast on it and yet protect their precious cargo from the other one.
I watched this with my jaw hanging down. They repeated this process until they devoured each and every piece of lettuce on the plate.
So much for the meat-eating theories!
