    Anybody else ....

    Got a damn hound that eats everything he can find? Tonight it was a whole raw ear of corn that he swiped off the counter. This is what he didn’t manage to eat before he was caught by my wife.

    LOL!

    Had 2 hounds like that- full blood husky and then a husky-lab-catahoula mix.

    My current lab is an angel and she all but types a letter asking permission before eating something...

      Sisters black lab would eat a dime as it was falling to the floor. Never outright stole food but drooled at attention if any food was out anywhere just waiting for opportunity to knock.

      He only counter surfed that one time. I think it gave him such an upset belly he learned his lesson.

    Was visiting a friend before COVID. Went inside to chew the fat a bit. Came out to my ve-hicle and told my buddie that I ha somethin for him, it was a whole package of jalapeño/sausage sticks. Looked in the front seat & there was an empty wrapper & the Derbster lookin so pleased to see me. When we got home, Derby sorta laid around all night with the “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” look. Didn’t get sick, but the recovery from the lethargy was a good day & a half.

    A long time ago we had a dog that ate two rising loaves of uncooked dough. For a couple days she was sick as a dog. Border collie. Smartest dog we ever had.

      Yup, 50 or so years ago. Purina.

      Alpo too (I think it was horsemeat).

    I can sympathize with this.

    We had a Dalmatian named Annie when the kids were young, who was the ultimate food thief. Worst example - I had just grilled 5 ribeyes, and made plates for 5 - salad, baked potato and steak laid out on plates on the kitchen counter - pretty sure they were pushed back from the edge too. The doorbell rang, it was a neighbor. Got back to the kitchen 2 minutes later - couldn't have been any longer - and there were 5 plates of salad and baked potatoes, and a little grease on the kitchen floor, and a guilty looking dog. To add insult to injury, about an hour after I fed the family Domino's pizza, she threw up all that steak, and I got to clean it up.

    She also swiped a whole pound of cooked bacon off the counter one Saturday morning behind my mother's back when she was here watching the kids while we went on a cruise.

    Fun times, and makes me glad we have shorter dogs now!

    I had a pan of cornbread on the stovetop that I was snacking on over a couple days. I thought my son was also picking at it but being sloppy with his fork and leaving a bunch of crumbs behind. I later figured out those "fork marks" were teeth marks from my border collie nibbling at it when nobody was around. I was a little disappointed and disgusted to learn those fork-marked pieces I kept squaring off and eating recently had dog lips and tongue on them.

    Okay, okay, okay...

    Harley was nabbed by my wife - he was abandoned at a house for sale and fed by the grounds crew once a week. He had never had a bath, been in a house, been for a walk, been in a car, he didn't know any words. He was around a year old, and 35 lbs underweight. I thought he would die.

    (btw, it took him a month to learn his first word)

    I had him two weeks, was grilling steaks, and he walked by the kitchen window as I looked outside. He was carrying a steak, and his head still had smoke rising from it. I let him be.... he earned it.

      I've had several rescues. They may start off slow, but once they realize that they've found love and care, they become the most loyal friend you could ask for. I truly believe that rescues feel gratitude.

      Bkhuna Absolutely - Chance had 4 owners before me in one year. He ABSOLUTELY knew he was adopted, and after ~ 9 months, he made sure he showed us in one way or another how appreciative he was almost every day.

      We’ve had the Derbinski 13 of his 14 years. He was found at a year & the H.S. had him for about a month. Even after good care he was still skinny as a rail. He now eats everything in sight. Loyal, it’s his middle name.

      Oh, I totally forgot that. Dunkin figured out the grease trap on the Hasty-Bake. I catch him with his head under the grill cover pretty much daily

      jfmorris Counter cuisining I think is in the breed and not limited to the kitchen counter, but extends and anything they can find. Some of their choices are disgusting.

      LA Pork Butt one time I thought the dog was dying because of bright crazy colors in her poop when cleaning up the back yard. Looking closer, I determined that she had eaten a box of Crayola crayons...

      jfmorris It sounds like normal Dalmatian behavior.

    In recent weeks Dunkin has eaten
    • an ear of corn
    • a pound of raw bacon
    • 3 tomatoes and a nectarine, including the pit
    • the bones from two T-Bones that I was going to use for beef broth
    • half the green tomatoes in the garden
    • about a pound of chicken feed
    That's what I remember at this point, but I'm going to keep a running diary now
