Last week, I bought potatoes and chicken breast fillets to make a salad. I boiled the potatoes and the chicken then placed them on the kitchen table, covered them and left them to cool. I went back to my computer and, ten minutes or so later, I heard the unmistakable sound of a plate falling on the floor.
I ran to the kitchen and saw Astro ON the table and about to eat a whole boiled potato. The plate that contained the chicken was on the floor, unbroken if that was any consolation, but the chicken was gone. What was meant to be chicken-potato salad became tuna-potato salad. After that, we never left food on top of the table, cover or no cover.
When Speedy arrived yesterday afternoon, he went into the kitchen for a snack where he was joined by Sam. Astro was sniffing around and even put up his front paws on the table. Speedy had to say “Off!” several times before the dog finally gave up.
He did look cute though with his front paws on the table, like he was begging for food. I said I’d get the camera, it’s been too long since I posted dog photos, but when I came back into the kitchen, Astro just sat on the floor and did not try to put his front paws on the table again. Well, he wasn’t going to deprive me of a chance to take photos so Sam… you have to see the photos to see what Sam did.
And that is how to make a dog crazy. That, too, is how to get even with a dog who ate over 800 grams of boiled chicken breast fillets. :mrgreen:
By the way, his puppy teeth have started to fall off.
