    Do You Trust Your Pet Around Food?

    I had a wonderful dog for ten years. She was perfect!! She was MY dog. I could leave her in the car with groceries for a little bit and she never touched anything. Well……this evening DH & I went to eat for Veteran's Day. We had HIS dog, Molly, with us, who is wilder than a March hare! I had some left overs so I put them on the floor of the front seat and DH & I went to Jo Ann's (who had an awesome sale today). When we got back out to the car about 20 minutes later, my left overs were gone!!! I had forgotten we can't trust Molly, where we used to be able to trust Ellie!

    Absolutely not food with my two! The 7 year old bigger dog can be trusted at home by himself. He dosen't get into anything nor touch anything like books, pictures, stuffed animals. The little one who is 7 months can not be trusted at all- he is a weasel despite the fact that other people think he is a cute chihuahua - dashound mix.

    I wouldn't trust any animal in a car with leftovers. They are different than groceries. The leftovers are meant to smell good and entice you to eat them. Poor Molly was only doing what she was baited to.

    I was taking a cake decorating class. We were to make a bunny cake, where you cut a round layer in half and stood them up, then covered a cupcake for the head and the rest of the body with piped icing. You made the tail out of a mound of icing. I decorated the cake on the dining room table, then when done, took the bowl and other decorating stuff over to the sink. When I turned back around, the tail was gone and Aspen, my husky/retriever had icing all over her mouth! Guess she thought it was real, and she tried to catch it by the tail??? lol Didn't know dogs liked icing.

    I have a Russian blue kitty Zoey. the only people food she'll eat is crispy bacon, stinky cheese and fresh dunkin donuts blueberry muffins. and at that only when she knows it's hers. she's a good kitty, not like my moms. she had a chicken out one time, and her cat Horatio, knocked it on the floor so he could eat it with his pal the lab. Anything she has on the counter, her cat will eat. my little girl just eats out of her bowl or her silver platter.

    Nope, can't trust mine! My Shepherd/Akita mix, BG is quite the "counter surfer". We have child locks on all the food cabinets. We have a French door refrigerator with a freezer on the bottom. BG has figured out how to open the freezer door. One morning, I had to leave before other half got home. BG was unsupervised for about 20 minutes. She managed to open the freezer and helped herself to 2 frozen rack of ribs that we had smoked just 2 days before. She ate every bit of the ribs, including the bones! There is now a child lock on the freezer door also!!

    So far so good with my cats. I used to hear my Loki (lost him several yrs ago) getting down from the table or kitchen counter. Never when he went up!! but he never got into anything. Even the Thanksgiving Turkey. We now have three cats and they only like their food. Mama used to want to clean my plate but lately she things every thing I eat is icky!

    had a shepherd mix that would eat anything she could get her mouth on. once left a full bag of hershey kisses on the dining room table. when i came home they were all gone, including the foil. she stole my sandwich while i went to answer the phone. in the car she ate half a pie while i ran into the store on the way home. none of this seemed to affect her in any way, except to want more.

    other than stealing food she was a wonderful, sweet natured girl and i miss her.

    also, had two cats who would sit in front of me as i ate and watch the food go from the plate to my mouth. like someone watching a tennis match, their heads following the food. laughed at them a lot.
