Liquid Chicken - WOW!

After our morning perambulations, momma accidentally left me outside.

Shortly thereafter, my keen labraears detected the sound of drawers opening and closing in the food preparation area. This could only mean one thing...

What are you up to in there, Momma?

It appeared she had decided to let me sample some of the Lickety Stik chicken in a bottle from Norwood or possibly Tula (I fear I do not know which as momma recklessly scrambled the goodie bags that they gave me for the holidays).

Not one to mess about when there is nourishment involved, I hastened to accept the offering into my labrajaws of doom.

Release the yummy!

Only to have the chickenliciously smelling tube yanked unceremoniously back.

"No, Dexter!" squawked the foolish woman, "don't eat it, lick it!" 

You want me to do what?

Now that seemed like the most inefficient way possible to transport the liquefied chicken goodness from her grasping paw into my perpetually empty abdominal cavity.

I know I should have walked away then and there, but, forgive me gentle readers, I am a fool for food. There I said it.

It pains me to see the rolling eyed blank look of ecstasy on my features, but such is the mindless, dare I say, animal vacuousness that overtakes me when confronted with yummers.

Chicken in a bottle! Can it get any better?

Dexter done!

P.S. Momma just installed Charity Miles on her iPhone. Now not only can we track how far we walk, but every mile makes a donation to charity. You can go here to install it. And, of course, Momma being Momma, she looked up how it works first and found lots of info here. Yes, it gives her the heebies to think that somewhere in the cloud is a record of all her movements on walkies, but life is too short to get overly paranoid about this stuff, right?


  1. We got those for our boys. Sam wanted to eat the whole bottle and Monty suspected a trap. Needless to say, we had to throw it away...


  2. And Pea it's low in calories. 1 calorie per 10 licks which I'm sure with your vigorous licking, meant burned calories. Wow wee.. LICK on dude.

    not that it matters but it was your pal me that gave it to you. Tula did not haver her lips on this gifters.

  3. I forgot to add.... that's like a chicken workout... best exercise evah!!

  4. Lickety Stiks? Why can't we find those in Canada???

    Sam and Pippen

  5. I have one of those somewhere but haven't tried it yet. I may have to find it.

    your pal,

  6. Build up her trust and confidence, Dex. Then on about the third time, just rip into the bottle. Seriously.
    Play bows,

  7. Liquid chicken in a bottle - sounds like heaven in a bottle! How totally cool is that!

  8. LIQUID CHICKEN??!!!!???? OMD! Your headline was totally a grabber! We're sending mom out POST HASTE to locate some of those for us. Can it be poured on kibbles?? Can it be poured on fur and then licked off??? Oh we can't wait!

    -Bart and Ruby

  9. Oh gosh, that first picture is too cute!!

  10. Oh, Ma was laughin' and chucklin' at the whole post....she thinks that 'Chicken in a bottle' is funny...I say: 'DELISH'!!!! Go NOW woman!! I wants some chicken in a bottle!


  11. Oh Dexter, we love your header photo - you are such a sophisticated and debonair pup!

  12. Hmmm. This makes me wonder if I am part Labrador. Food glorious food! Is there anything better in the world? NOT.

    I have yet to sample this culinary delight myself. This liquified chicken in a tube. Most intriguing. Don't you have teeth to chew the real thing?

    P.S. TT want to know if you got her email.

  13. hello dexter its dennis the vizsla dog hay yoo cannot eet it!!! just lik it!!! ok bye

  14. Dexter we have some of that too... ERNIE goes totally CRACKER DOG over it.. I pawsonally prefer MY chicken in Chomping form. BUTT... mom says she LOVES it beclaws even I will look at it... RATHER than at the FLASHY BEAST.
    SO tell me buddy... How is your momma's Bird Tree coming?

  15. Is this like chicken chapstick for your lips, Dexter?
    Your header photo is hysterical! We love it!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  16. What a great treat! I will have my mom go find some of that for me too.


  17. Wow, you can roll it on yourself, like hoomans do with anti-stink stick! And then you could like it off all day long! Nom. Nom. Nom.

    Your Pal,

    Miss Fendi HoneyBuzz

    PS - You new bloggie layout is looking dashing -- just like you!!

  18. wow now that is quite interesting
    Benny & Lily

  19. Do they have liquid salmon or rabbit? We can't eat chicken... or anything close to it.

    THANK YOU for linking to the Charity Miles thing. Idiot Mama has seen it for at least a year on others' Facebook, but couldn't be bothered to explore. She tracks our miles anyway...

  20. Hmmmm...never saw dat stuff befores. Momma must be hiding stuff from me again.


  21. Yet another reason why our Mom has to get a non-Crackberry as her next phone. (Although she's pretty much sold on a Nokia Lumina that runs Windows 8, so she still might not be able to do the Charity Miles thing... But apparently the phone has a really good camera, which, knowing Mom is of critical importance. Right after email, apparently.) Those liquid chicken thingys are AWESOME!!! Our dog trainer got one for us, and OMD. Seriously. Best. Idea. Ever. LOVE your header photo, BTW. You and Abby might be able to get a discount on a bulk purchase of holy water... ;-)

  22. Where does one find the liquid chicken...inquiring minds need to know!

    And what charity are you walking for Dex???

  23. My trainer has told me that Shyla would get a similar vacuous (great vocab word) look if I bought the liquid chicken for her. I was scared by that thought and didn't buy it :)

    I don't own a smart phone. Mine is dumb because we don't have cell reception in the boonies. But, for a little while, I let a company called "Spot" monitor my perambulations. Then, it freaked me out that they always knew where I was or had been, and I turned off that feature. Big brother is getting a little too close for comfort (and, no, I'm not the paranoid sort).

  24. Chicken in a bottle? Interesting! Good job on not eating the squeeze bottle Dexter! I think Leroy would of swallowed that whole!

  25. Gail sometimes says to me (when she is in a hurry and I am sniffing something) "Come on Bertie! Lickety Split!' I think it is an exhortation to move faster. I am sure I would make haste towards a bottle of 'Lickety Stik'.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail is so relieved that she is not the only one who gets confused about present givers...

  26. Wow! Dexter!! We are going to have to have mama look for this at our grocery store! We have never heard of chicken in a bottle, but it sure sounds and looks great to us!! Definitely a good idea...that you didn't eat the bottle!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  27. Howdy Dex, chicken in a bottle? We've heard of chicken in a can (mum says gross) but never liquid chicken. We're always missing out on the good stuff. Maybe if Rory rolled on a couple of next door's chickens they might turn liquid especially with the heat we're having. Love your new header mate. Totally labradoofer. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  28. Life just keeps gettin doggone better n better doesn't it Dex. Maybe they're designin that food for doggy astronauts. Get your space helmet ready.

  29. Chicken... in a bottle. I... excuse me, I'm having a moment.

  30. Did you say chicken in a bottle ...and did your crazy assistant just tell you to lick it and not eat it! Grab that bottle and run like the wind, my friend!

    Your pal, Pip

  31. Dexter, you cracks me up with your labraantics! I knows the feeling about doing anything for foodstuffs, buddy. They just has too much delicious to maintain all of your dignities. Mama is getting iphone soon, switching from Android, she says she will look up that app (even though yes it is slightly creepalicious).


  32. Ha ha ha, Dexter. Delilah would have tried to eat it too!!

  33. Hi Dex--just came by to catch up. hope all is well--you look great, big beautiful boy. Bet you can't wait for summer so you can barf in the pool again. love guinness

  34. Just one more reason for me to hide from the i=Phone: tracking my walkies or whatnot. Will you get more chicken in a bottle for letting the great hidden somebodies watch where you take Momma?

  35. Just a note frum us Beaglebratz. Blogger wuz not lettin'us follow u HOWEVER that iz how it WUZ bak last year - NOW we can. So now we can follow u around, find out what u iz up tue or down tue - whatever it iz.

    LIKWID chicken - how eezy-peezy iz that?

  36. How could Momma forget Dexter? That's inconceivable. I'm sure the door handle just slipped out of her cold numb hands after walking all those charity miles. You're too cute to forget :)
