@Publisher posted on another thread about his dog liking bacon, made me think of a few times my dogs got into something they should not have.
I had made a squash casserole for one of the Jewish holidays and had it sitting on the counter waiting to finish off in the over so I could take it to my aunt’s house hot. Went upstairs to get something and when I can down, I heard this faint clanging sound; It would happen every few minutes. Walked into the kitchen to see my bigger dog, literally on her tip toes, with her head turned, while licking the top of the casserole! The clanging was her tags hitting the Pyrex. She had only managed to reach a corner, but it had a nice dent in it. Because it had a topping, I just scooped out the corner where she had licked; it looked like someone just took out a portion.
When we get to my aunt’s house, I debate whether to say anything. Remember, it had not been baked prior to the dog, so any germs that might have been left, were killed in the oven I did tell my mother and aunt, but no one else. The first thing my uncle says when he gets to the table, is “Why didn’t you bring the entire dish?” We ended up telling most everyone later.
The smaller dog did the same thing, only thing time it was my son’s birthday cake. The lid was left propped opened as it was a golf theme and the golfer was tall. I had it on the dining room table so my son didn’t see it when he came home; he was in medical school and was coming home for the weekend. This dog managed to get enough of the cake, in the same fashion as his sister, tip toes and a side head tilt; they seem to have very long tongues! We ended up having to go to the emergency vet as it was evening, as I could not get him to vomit with the peroxide solution. While I was worried as it was a chocolate cake, the vet was more concerned with the sugar content consumed. When the vet came out, he mentioned the green color; I had to explain it was a cake of a gold course, so yes, lots of green icing! Publix gave us another cake at no charge when I showed them the picture.
