It's Sunday, Talley has a high ranking, very important job that she must do.
You see, the girls in our family can be very, very finicky. Their kibble has to mixed in a certain way, or they will show us. They'll starve to death. They'll get skinny. They'll show their ribs.
The boys always eat, but those darn girls.
One of their favorite delicacies is the roasted chicken from Costco. They know when we go to Costco and believe me, they expect a chicken.
Karen takes some time after we get it home and picks the chicken clean.
Talley used to be a very shy girl. When she'd sneak around and peak into the kitchen, Karen would offer her a morsel hoping to bring her around.
Now, every Sunday afternoon, it is Talley's official job to taste test the chicken. She must make sure that it is safe for the other ladies.
Ever so gently she reaches up and takes the chicken from Karen's hand.
I don't think she is so shy anymore.
