STUPID DOG STRIKES AGAIN!

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
So, I had an incident back in May where my 2 labs pulled a full sheet cake off my dining room table and ate it. (and proceeded to vomit for 2 days). I swore they would DIE if they did it again. HAHAHAHA!

Talk about the cart before the horse...

I had bought 6 pounds of powdered sugar and 4 boxes of mix from walmart. They were still in the walmart bags sitting on my kitchen floor (the dogs don't have easy access to the kitchen (or so I thought). Our youngest dog always goes in her kennel when we leave and the older one has never been a problem.

We left to take my 1 year old son to the mall to run off some energy (it's too hot here to go outside). When we came home for dinner, there was 4 pounds of powdered sugar ALL over my living room and 2 more pounds of powdered sugar and 2 cake mixes ripped open (BOX AND ALL) all over my dining room!!!! icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

I WANT TO KILL MY DOG!!! She had to walk over a scat mat (it shocks like static electricity when you walk over it) and push open a swinging door to get all that stuff out of the walmart bags, back across the scat mat and into the living and dining rooms and then chew through all the packaging!!!!!

UGH!!!! This cake is due Saturday morning and I have appointments all day tomorrow and can't leave tonight to get my stuff b/c DH is gone. I usually bake Wednesday night and make icing Thursday night and start decorating on Friday morning (and decorate a little all day long during son's naptimes). I'm not sure how I'll get it done now. STUPID DOG!!!!!

Oh that is so awful. I'm sorry that happened to you. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all works out for you.

Thanks so much. I am trying to find the humor in the fact that the STUPID DOG couldn't even wait for me to bake the darn thing this time...LOL

So sorry this happened to you.

Sounds like she would have been good buddies with my last dog. He was notorious for getting into stuff. Once he took a bite out of a pound of butter that was in a box from Costco that I had set down on the floor. I only set it down long enough to go get another box from the car. (Wrapper and all) He also ate a bag of chewing gum (again, wrappers and all), a bag of pistachios (but he left the shells) and once he got into a bag of corn on the cob. I opened the door to see corn husks and cobs and kernals and silk from one end of my house to the other! And one year I had to make three gingerbread houses - he kept stealing them.

Boy, though, talk about impatient! She didn't even wait until you had it baked! I wouldn't think the dry sugar would be so great, but that same dog of mine once ate a box of dry instant pudding, so who knows...

I hope the next attempt goes well and that your doggie behaves herself this time!

I experienced something similar with a dog we used to have, I had spent 2 days making about 200 BC roses to go on a wedding cake, made them Tuesday/Wednesday so they would be good and dried out by Saturday AM. Left them on the DR table where the ceiling fan would dry them nicely. All day Thursday, all day Friday, they sat undisturbed. Even when we left the house with Athena (dog) home alone. Come Saturday AM, DH and DS went out to some excursion, I headed down to basement to fetch some supplies, as I was coming back up the stairs I heard an aluminum-cookie-sheet-sounding BANG, ran into the DR where Athena was happily munching on the remains of the contents of that tray, about 45 roses in all.

She spent the rest of the day in the backyard until I left for my delivery. I had to really do some fancy rearranging to make the cake look right with only 75% of the roses!!!! icon_mad.gif

Sorry you had this happened. Were the dogs bouncing off the walls when you got home? Holy cow! 3 bags of PS? And what a mess to clean up!

Roper (our problem doggie) will chew anything when he's bored. We live on a ranch and every evening (if the weather's pretty enough) I drive around the ranch in our Kutoba RTV (kinda like a golf cart) for about 2 miles with him running beside me, stopping at the ponds so he can get a drink and swim to wear his butt out. Then he usually sleeps good at night won't finish tearing the doors off the cabinets in the utility room.

While we're driving around, my 80lb Basset Hound and 5lb Chihuaha is riding in the Kubota with me cheering Roper on.

LOL @ All the stories!! Aren't our 'babies' big pains in the butt??? Good thing we seem to love dogs...

My sweet hubby went down into the basement and pulled out the dog kennel so that we can put Shelby into it while we are gone. She didn't like it too much today but the house was intact when I returned! icon_biggrin.gif

Am heading into the kitchen to bake now...DH took our son out for some Daddy time and so I can be alone for a bit....YIPPPPPEEEE!!!!!

We've got a small fox terrier who hadn't touched any of my cake stuff until the day of my last advanced gumpaste class. She ate 1/2 of my leaves (which I hadn't had time to make enough of in the first place). All my flowers were on the dining table too, but fortunately all she touched was the leaves.

Another time I came home to a potato sitting on my landing...hmm..how on earth did that get there? I found 3-4 whole unmarked potatoes in various places in my house (including upstairs)...unmarked as in no teeth marks at all. Not sure how she carried them all over (they were quite large potatoes and she's not that big). There was 1 that was 1/2 eaten though. Now whenever I'm cutting potatoes, she's right there beside me in the kitchen, obviously she enjoyed the 1/2 she ate!!

LOL!!!! I know how frustrated you must have been, but your story and rest of these had me giggling. icon_lol.gif You gotta love those furry guys. I remember when ours got into my husband's work bag and decided to chew open the motrin bottle and consume a few! Over $1600 later, he's back to normal! I hope yours are feeling okay, even though right now you are wanting to kill them!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

This makes me want to get home quick. I left 2 bags of powdered sugar in reach of my dogs! HA! I have an English mastiff that can easily put her head on the counter top so I completely understand. There have been several things that have gotten "confiscated" by my dear dog. Once I had made peanut butter balls for DH's work. I put them in the center of the island in my kitchen, thinking that there's no way she could reach them. I was wrong and came home to any empty tray on the floor. HA! Got to love them right?

I can just see the mess and the dogs just sit there and say.......What!!!!....
I lol when I read your story.......

me too.......I put all my baked cakes on a table in the spare room to keep away from little four footed friends......well the gate didn't get up...and of course there was no one home to tell them NO.....all the cakes were eaten off around the edge of the table as far as the dogs would reach.....

needless to say there was a lot of baking going on that evening......

They can make you soooooooo mad but there little faces make your heart melt....

OK..I know these were about dogs but I have a cat that is now 1 year old and he loves sweet stuff. I have waken up to 1/2 a order of choc. cc eaten and wrapper left, as he ate through the box. I have caught him with my bag of PS and eating through the bag. If I don't do dishes right away he tries to get in the sink and lick the icing bowls.
