Ok, that was funny. (Although the culinary pedant in me is compelled to point out that a butternut squash is not a root vegetable.)

One of our dogs is quite partial to sweet potato but she hasn't started stealing them. If I dice one up to put in a casserole she's very keen if a bit falls from the bench. Peeled and cooked sweet potato is fine for dogs (unlike regular white potato) so if you're ever making your own dog food it's a cheap filling option your hairy friend may really enjoy as an ingredient.

It's not funny if it's your life every day.
I have a 12 year old beagle that has been through 3 different "trainers" to get him (to teach us) to prevent him from eating everything in sight.

Nothing has worked. Taking him for a walk is agony 2-3 times a day because he's more interested in eating deer poop or dog poop or any poop than just walking and/or peeing!

He has to go to the bathroom, we take him out to go to the bathroom, he spends the whole time sniffing for/eating deer poop, and forgets to go to the bathroom.  Then we have to take him outside again and again and again because he won't go to the bathroom because he's too busy looking for poop to eat!!

Again, he's 12, we've had him tested, there's nothing wrong with him other than being a beagle.

Good for a laugh, we deal with this in minature here.  We have a chonk polydactyl cat and a chonk Chihuahua that eat everything that fits in their mouths.   For instance, the Chi used to gorge on cat turds till we bought tall litter boxes with the entrances on top.

That is pretty funny. People like to say that small kids and dogs don't lie but they do.

I got a kick out of the dog pointedly walking away. My dog does that a lot. I've posted before that she likes to play ring and run, coming on the porch and triggering the motion sensor as if she ready to come in, then running and hiding on the other side of a neighbor's house. She has another game she plays about going out. When she sees I'm ready to watch Jeopardy she consistently tells me she wants to go out (I think she recognizes the music). I tell her "In a minute," which she understands. Then at commercial we'll go to the door, her acting very excited about it, but when I open the door and stand aside for her, she'll walk away, going into her no-go zone of the guest bedroom. "I know you didn't really want to let me out. And if you didn't want to, I won't make you do it." Which is different than her sometimes refusal to go out in the rain, as if I made it happen just to ruin her trip. While other times she's content to lay in the rain for hours. Give me dirty looks and ignore me when I offer to bring her in.

We had a beagle/basset mix and still have a now almost senior beagle/corgi mix. We also had a heeler mix but she acted like a proper dog so we'll disregard her for now. The one thing we learned for sure is this... All food is beagle food. No exceptions.

Yeah we've looked into it in the past.  He's just a beagle/hound mix.
He reminds me of the hound dog from that Bugs Bunny cartoon?
So when he gets a "scent" it's all over.

It's just annoying.  But again, he's 12.  He ain't gonna change now!

My parents told a story of Father dropping a box of Valentine's chocolates, their racing to get them up before the dog ate them all. For weeks later his standing and staring at a random piece of furniture whining. Them finally lifting it up, the dog quickly reaching under and scarfing down a piece of chocolate.

They say chocolate is bad for dogs, which is true, but bigger dogs do fine with small doses. I had a dog I'd routinely bring to the neighborhood ice cream parlor. He was quite popular there, politely standing in line, and small kids often wanted to share their ice cream with him, which he well understood. From time to time some busybody would tell me "Ice cream isn't good for dogs!" I'd answer, "It isn't 'good' for people either, yet here we all are..."  It was funny to see him do a double take and glare at the boarded-up windows that first day after they'd closed up for the winter.

Permanent Solutions For Permanent Problems: And this is why I don't have a dog.


Not all of them are floofy brats!

Mine doesn't try to steal food or eat or chew on random things. Then again he's also 7lbs and I don't keep anything where he is even remotely close to being able to retrieve them.

If someone is over and leaves a napkin or scraps where he can get them, he will steal them to get a treat and drop what he has, but that's just being clever.

He's also just a bit over 1 and already manipulative!

When I was a kid one of our beagles managed to jump up onto the kitchen counter and eat her bodyweight in perogies my mom had spent all day making. I don't remember anyone being mad about it though because to get up there she had really worked for it and who can resisit perogies? Nobody.

I have two dogs and a cat. I have not had a kitten since I was a little girl, so I'm re-learning the quirks of a feline.

Last week, I bought a delicious Italian sub to eat at lunch, and to finish at dinner time. It was in my zippered lunch bag that was open an inch or two. I got home from work, fed the creatures, then sat down to eat my dinner. I pulled out a roll that was empty, except for scraps of lettuce and onion.Murray had stuffed his head into my lunch bag and ate all the meat and cheese out of my sandwich, after I'd fed him. His tummy looked like he'd swallowed a volleyball. Little shiat is lucky he is cute.

One of my Coonie mixes got into the stew meat while I was unloading groceries yesterday.  I feel your pain.  She only grabbed a couple of cubes though.

Naturally, I will go ahead and throw the rest in the Crock-Pot later this morning.

Took care of a street-mutt once before he was rehoused who always made a beeline to human poop. Only human poop. Wolfed it down. With the kind of glee you usually expect from kiddos at Halloween.

I had a Beagle/hound mix named Baxter (RIP) that always ate like he had never been fed food before in his life. Absolutely inhaled it.

Once he ate an entire loaf of bread (we weren't watching him closely enough) in about 10 seconds, threw it up shortly thereafter, then started to eat it again. He was lucky he was cute.

The Bricklayer's Accident Report

Dear Sir,

I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block #3 of the accident reporting form. I put "Poor Planning" as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient.

I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I found I had some bricks left over which when weighed later were found to weigh 240 lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley which was attached to the side of the building at the sixth floor.

Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to insure a slow descent of the 240 lbs of bricks. You will note on the accident reporting form that my weight is 135 lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building.

In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed. This explains the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collarbone, as listed in Section 3, accident reporting form. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley which I mentioned in Paragraph 2 of this correspondence. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of the excruciating pain I was now beginning to experience.

At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now devoid of the weight of the bricks, the barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight. As you might imagine, I began a rapid descent down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and severe lacerations of my legs and lower body.

Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked.
I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move and watching the empty barrel six stories above me, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope

I had a Doberman that would steal oranges and then bring them to me to peel for him.  As if I hadn't noticed a huge black dog slide into the room and insinuate itself up on the back of the sofa in order to reach the bowl then slide back out.  Worst ninja ever.

He now gets 2/3rds pumpkin to 1/3 cat food ... and has lost four pounds over the past year and actually has a neck now. And more energy. Which he uses to forage for food if not watched like a hawk. By us. I caught him nibbling on the drapes the other day, I guess to see if they were edible.

Here he is trying to eat a toy fish...

"Best Beloved" is cribbed from Kipling. Just in case you wanted to know. I'd just finished my bi-annual re-reading of my favorite spy novels and had begun my bi-annual re-reading of Kipling last night. "Best Beloved" is how the narrator of the Just So stories addresses his readers who are stand-ins for his children. Or vice versa.

Laughed to tears... Needed it too.
One of our dogs got picked up for "wandering" Thursday night while we were out walking. It's a "park", that's pretty much a forest next to to town. We were just up the trail, but it was so dark you couldn't see anything and I guess she was on the road. Had to pay a fat fine to get her out the next morning.
She's the one who always gets us into trouble.
