This is why you don't keep good smelling food/snacks around the oven. Curious dogs will track that stuff down. Poor pup.

With labs, I have learned to keep all non-perishable food in very high cabinets or on top of the fridge.  I once had a black lab take half of a pizza from the top of a fairly high dresser, eat all but the crusts and then leave said crusts rolled up in my bed sheet.  Little bastard.

Guess I got off lightly.

Applies to anything.  I've caught myself putting oven mitts down when the burners were still warm.

Never, ever put anything that can catch on fire on top of the oven.  Dish towel, oven mitt, empty plastic bag.  Nothing.

I heard it was because the dog was reaching for the phone.

Those treats would have killed him anyways.

This. Even if you don't burn your house down it's, at the very least, a good way to ruin your oven. I ruined a glass top oven surface once because in a moment of derp I set a pack of hamburger rolls right on top of a burner I'd just gotten done making hamburgers on. It only took a minute before there was a noxious, molten, blackened mess never to be removed from it.

On the plus side, I ruined an electric oven and already had a gas valve so I used it as an excuse to replace that POS with something that didn't burn your food to a smoky crisp if you didn't hover over it every single nanosecond it was on the burner.

My golden has stolen pizza out of the closed box on the counter, somehow made no noise, and left the empty box closed still on the counter.

Hell, he even figured put how to get through the doggie door with one of those bog cones on his neck. He either slowly worked it through, or went backwards.

"Where's your homework?"
"The dog burned it.  Along with the house."

Got up one morning to find that my GF's stupid cat turned on the gas.  No, it didn't manage to light it, but I had to eat a cold breakfast.
