You meet live things, not inanimate objects. So I wasn't referring to something you eat.
Meet Cookie my friend's poodle. He looks like a toy! The first time I met him, he was still a puppy. And he scared one of our mutual friends.
Now, however, he has grown in maturity and is ever so well behaved. Tricks. Yes, he does tricks too. He rolls over, he stands up, he fetches his mistresses' slippers (one by one) he understands when it is time to sleep. Oh, he is like a member of the house.
