To my daughter, who just made a carrot cake and left it on the counter to cool:

ME: I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the cake is delicious
Her: Bad news?
ME: The dog told us.

Great. Now I have to relive that traumatic raccoon eating - pumpkin pie incident from Thanksgiving.

Our old weimaraner was famous for snagging loaves of bread off the counter when no one was around. One time we set up the video camera and left. You can see Wyatt go in, smell the counter, disappear (waiting to hear the car leave), then he comes back, stands up, grabs the bread, and disappears. Later you see him come back into camera view and cruise along the counter on his hind legs, sniffing for anything else that may be within reach. Just as we were going to shut off the camera, we saw both cats get into the action, get up on the counters, walk around sniffing, jump over to the stove, check it out for anything good. The grossest thing was watching them lick the butter on the butter dish.

Curing a dog of counter snooping in one easy lesson.

One day our weimaraner helped himself to a package of ground chuck that had been left to thaw on the counter. My father said he would fix it. He purchased another package of ground chuck a few days later, cracked it open and spiked it with a shaker full of pepper. We then hopped in the car and went for a ride. When we returned a short time later, the meat had predictably disappeared. Within an hour Smokey was feeling quite ill, to which he remained for about 3 days. After that, a stray t-bone steak could hang partially off the counter without fear of poaching.

Those are wonderfully funny stories...I can't resist. When my husband and I were first married, we had two wonderful cats. My husband made chili for dinner and used 2 T. of cayenne pepper instead of chili powder...he didn't know the difference. We took one bite and nearly gagged to death. We then heard fire engines pull up near our apartment and went outside to see. The cats had finished off the chili while we were gone, and they spent the next three days running to the kitty litter and meowing piteously each time! We still can't figure out what attracted them to it or how they managed to get it down! One of life's mysteries.

Long ago when I was younger my parents adopted a weimaraner from the pound - they named him Dutch. He had been badly abused and starved. The original owners didn't have his tail cropped, so it was about 5 feet long (well, maybe not 5 feet, but you get the idea - we gave his tail a wide berth when he was feeling really happy). We loved Dutch and gave him good, wholesome dog food and plenty of attention.

We had one of those old refrigerators that had the freezer on the bottom and you had to push a pedal on the ground to open it. One day while us kids were at school and Mom and Dad at work, Dutch decided the dog food wasn't for him. He had apparently watched my mother use that pedal to open the freezer and knew just what was inside. When we got home that night there were meat wrappers all over the house, and Dutch was looking very pleased with himself.

My mom got a new refrigerator the next week.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Sheri Ras.
