Come to find out, when Nicholas came home, they already had their two meals. I had given them a third with extras to make up for being home so late. And treats.
I am reminded of Pug Owner Lesson #1 - Do not believe the pugs when they tell you they haven't eaten. Consult schedule or other responsible human.
