I Died and Went to HeavenPosted: February 25, 2014
Oh, goodness no. I don’t mean that literally. That’s just something that humans where I live like to say after they’ve eaten something that is out-of-this-world fabulous. The conversation sounds something like this: “Ellie Mae, did you taste that pecan pie?” “I sure did, Mary Beth. I thought I died and went to heaven.”
Well, this past Saturday I joined my humans for a morning coffee break at our neighborhood Starbucks . . . and I experienced my first ever Puppuccino. I thought I died and went to heaven. I’ve joined my humans before for casual weekend mornings at Starbucks, but usually I just lounge and observe while they indulge. This time was completely different. After my humans had finished eating whatever it was they were eating, my daddy disappeared back inside. When he emerged, I saw that he had a very small cup. He sat down and offered that very small cup to me.
Oh. My. Dog. That little cup contained pure bliss, which I later learned is technically called Puppuccino. It’s just a tiny squirt of whipped cream, and my new favorite humans at Starbucks offer it to their canine customers completely free of charge. It may very well be the best thing I’ve ever eaten.
I will be the very first one to tell you that Puppuccino is not the neatest thing you will ever eat. When I was at the height of my feeding frenzy (yes, I will admit that it was a bit of a frenzy), the Puppuccino was flying every which way. And I will also grant you that whipped cream may not be something that a dog should have on a regular basis. However, it is only a tiny amount. And, if you are blessed with humans like mine–who I truly think might have been drill sergeants in their previous lives–the walk to your local Starbucks, followed by the extensive stroll around the shopping area, and then concluded with the long walk back home should take care of any evils that the Puppuccino may have brought.
Let me just tell you that my first Puppuccino experience may have been the culinary highlight of my nearly five years of life. I know it’s not something that my humans will let me have very often, but I am now dreaming of my next taste of heaven. Yummy!
