<p>I decided to fix myself two cheeseburgers tonight.  I made the first one, sat down and had a couple of bites.  Got up to get some coke, and as I turned around the dog's front paws were on the table with her mouth firmly relieving my plate of the cheeseburger. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just made the second one and ate it in front of her for spite.  I did pat her on the head to show her I wasn't mad. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Normally, as long as I'm in the kitchen or dining room she doesn't bother the food on my plate.  But every now and then her instincts simply get too strong and she grabs something.</p>

<p>At least that wasn't as bad as my little hound dog eating the pizza.  We're talking home made deep dish pizza.  I cut it into 12 pieces, which feeds the entire family.  Rarely can anyone eat more than 2 maybe 3 slices--even son1 who can eat!  This little 18lb hound dog jumped up on the kitchen island and ate 4 pieces!  Uh, yah, he was a bit bloated for a good couple of days.</p>

<p>My pets work as a team apparently.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had a slice of banana bread on a napkin on an outside table.  I turned my back for a minute, and I got back in time to see  the cat jump up and knock it off the table, and the dog immediately scarfed it up.  And the cat jumped down and started trying to eat the crumbs the dog left.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" title=""></p>

<p>When I was in my mid-teens we had a 200 lb St. Bernard named Dunderbeck (should of been Dunderhead).  He was a notorious food thief.  Some of his personal bests were 52 sauerkraut balls that were cooling on the counter, 7 mostly thawed pork chops that were thawing in the sink, 1 lb blocks of butter several different times, my dad's entire breakfast one morning (2 eggs over easy, bacon, toast and half a grapefruit).  The sauerkraut balls and grapefruit both made him sick....  a lovely mess.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My beagle from about ten yrs ago scarfed down approximately a quart of used vegetable oil from an oversized frying pan we had just used on an open fire to fry several pounds of fish.  She then promptly went in the house and hurled it up on the carpet.  That stain never did fully disappear despite numerous attempts.  I have plenty of other dog stories....</p>

<p>Similar things.  When I was growing up, my dog ate an entire stick of butter...more than once.  An entire pound of bacon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And the kicker, an entire chocolate cake, which actually had us scared, because of the whole dog/chocolate thing.  It didn't kill her, but, it wasn't a good few days...stains on the carpet...stuff coming out both ends...if you know what I mean.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another dog ate fabric...who knows why...and, I can tell you, it's interesting a day or so later...and the only real way to get it out is to just grab it and tug...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh...and this is funny, tinsel at Christmas time.  Nice decorative, shiny poop.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Our current dog ate an several buffalo chicken wings before we could stop her...don't know how that went through, but it was several years ago...never had any repercussions that I could tell.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dogs...ya gotta love em'</p>

<p>For the second day in a row, the stupid hound dog ate part of my foam roller.  For a chaser, he ate a vanilla Gu.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You know, the food thing I can understand.  But stuff like vasoline, chap stick, Dial soap?!  How does the beagle even remotely consider that worthy of eating?!</p>

<p>Winnie-the-poodle love Dove soap.  Must have been the cold cream.  It didn't love her.  Oh how I wish that cartoon image of hiccuping bubbles was the worst of it.</p>

<p>Beagles/hounds are notorious for being garbage guts.  The beagle once dug up 3 day old fish carcasses I had buried in the mulch pile and ate them.  The ensuing infection in her digestive tract from eating fish bones was an expensive vet bill.<br>

We're talkign the yellow deodorant stuff.  I mean, I don't really like the scent but it's better than stinky teen boy stink.  And what's worst it the hound seems to seek it out.  After a camping trip I told the kids to just toss their duffle bags in front of the washer since everything--worn or not--needed washed.  Stupid hound dug through the duffle bag!  Normally after grocery shopping I'll leave stuff on the steps for my next trip upstairs.  Not anymore...  Luckily he does seem to have an iron gut.</p>

<p>This was a long time ago (1960s), but our dog, a beagle...my parents would let her out each night to go pee..it was rural back then...on Thanksgiving, one year, she came back with a turkey carcass in tow.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>God I loved that dog....</p>

<p>My current golden is an scrounge...but Rosie, my last dog was much much worse.  Ro, 3 years in a row, ate the carrot cake left on the counter at Easter...in her defense, it WAS around her birthday and we used to say it was her cake.  Apparently she understood us.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>She once leapt up and snatched a small bird flying by...and swallowed it whole.  To no ill effects.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Funniest thing was one time we were at my parent's house.  My dad had a big potted yellow plum tomato plant, which Rosie nearly stripped of its fruit.  When I walked her the next day...there were whole yellow tomatoes in her poop.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>She also used to eat moss off stone walls and bark off trees.</p>

<p>Do you have any idea how large the bladder of a 100lb dog is? I do. First thing this morning:</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53624/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="e-pee.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13302" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13302/width/432/height/288" style="; width: 432px; height: 288px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Two LAKES of pee connected by a river. No idea what his deal is. He hasn't peed in the house in years.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My shepherd was too busy barking at a dog he hates walking past our house to let me know that Jack needed to go out. (Yes, my shepherd usually tells me when the bulldog needs something.)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Took 3/4 of a fresh roll of paper towel to clean it up.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>At least it wasn't pudding poop. THAT would have made me barf for sure.</p>

<p>Our mini schnauzer would steal the staples out of papers, magazines, anything she could get a hold of, and eat them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bear, our golden, stole 4 plates of chocolate chip cookies that I had put on the back of the counter--he still got them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Pork roast defrosting on the counter--gone.  When that came out the other end, it was still "wrapped" in plastic. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bear also liked to raid the cat litter box if given the opportunity (it was upstairs, he wasn't allowed up there...).  Kitty litter smiles on dogs are so gross...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My Bassett, Daisy, swallowed a hickory nut whole one day when she saw me approaching and apparently thought I was going to take it.  It lodged in her gut--$700 surgery to remove it.</p>

<p>  The  Kitty litter snack tray is  Louie's favorite.  I have finally foiled his inclination by  putting the little in  a big plastic organizer type bin so cats can get in but short legged dogs cannot. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>   Otherwise this dog is surprisly picky about his food.   When he came to us he had been hungry as some point and was  very food protective. Once he figured out that the food was coming regularly he is almost casual about it .. a few bites here or there.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>  He does love to tear up a good dry napkin though.. and his affection for my polar fleece  blankets in the family room  is not appropriate for the "family" setting! </p>
