What's the Magic Word? Venga!

When people talk about “the magic word” they mean “please”. When we talk about the magic word, we mean “Venga”. It makes our mouth water just thinking about it.

Mommy had a trainer come to our house because we don’t always listen when we’re called.

Yeah. One time daddy had to chase us down the street because we were running after a squirrel. He yelled our names, but we didn’t listen. We just kept running, we were so focused on that darn squirrel. When he did catch up to us he was out of breath. And rather angry. The squirrel was up in a tree. So we weren’t very happy either.

Anyway, this trainer told mommy we needed a special word. A word that would only be used in the case of an emergency (like the squirrel incident, we guess). A word that would stop us in our tracks, no matter what we are doing or chasing or barking at, and get us to come running. Mommy told daddy ‘venga’ would be the perfect word. It means the command ‘come’ in Spanish. Daddy agreed.

When we hear the word ‘Venga’, it is like music to our ears. We know when we come, it means that we will get the most tantalizing of culinary delights. One that is soft and creamy and melts in our mouthes. A rich savory flavor that’s intensity is matched only by it's deep pungent aroma. What is this delicacy you ask? We’re not sure what its called…we can’t read, remember. But it comes in a petite glass jar with a silver lid and has a picture of a cute little baby on it. Rocco took this picture.

¡Muy delicioso!
