Honey Roasted Peanuts

5 x 5 inches, Oil on Board
Another commission.
S was showing me how well the new foster dog responds to little treats....Stella, my pointer sister loved the treats too - she'd proudly stand for it. He was reaching into a large can of honey-roasted peanuts.
I reached for one and popped one in my mouth - it had a fishy taste, not at all sweet and when I spit it out it was square shaped. I looked at the can and it did say "honey-roasted peanuts" so I figured I'd gotten a "bad" one and that it was one of those nuts with some coating on it, so I popped it back into my mouth....YEAH - stupid of me! YEAH....and then it hit me!!! These were not honey-roasted peanuts but someone had put doggie treats in that canister!!
Aaaaarrrrgggghhhh...really? It took two attempts for me to figure it out!?!? Well, I refuse to "sit" or "stay" for that horrid tasting honey roasted peanut!!
Have a wonderful Saturday!
