STUPID DOG STRIKES AGAIN! - Page 2

post #16 of 72
Oh I have one of those too! She has taken chunks out of numerous cakes (when will I learn!) and stole many RI roses when I wasn't looking. Ate 1/2 lb of butter and as my hubby put it "butter in, butter out" so she had to stay outside. She has now decided to chew the wood on the stairs!! Now she's not allowed to be alone in any room of the house. Freakin' dogs and their neurotic issues!! Gotta love 'em so you don't kill 'em. icon_lol.gif

That's so aggravating and what a pain it must have been to clean up. I guess I should not complain so much about the dog getting into my bag of potatoes.
She also likes to eat the garden zucchini... icon_rolleyes.gif

OH No..I'm so sorry that happened to you!! I haven't had any doggie disasters yet with food. I have small dogs..a Boston Terrier & a Long Haired Dachshund so they have a long way to go to get to the table or counter. My weiner dog may somehow invent a way to get up there, so I've definitely got my eyes on him...he's a serious thief...anything that hits the floor is gone in seconds.

One of the pooches did attempt to eat a hot pepper from the garden, but after one bite decided it wasn't for them and left it on the deck.

Yuuuuuuuuucky - (oh so sorry tomsmom245 and chocolateandpeanutbutter,) but I'm still trying to get over the fact that even though it is in bags and boxes that food is on a floor........... ishy kaka.





I think everybody has come in with loads of groceries and put them on the floor at one point...I really don't think this is gross, the food isn't touching the floor and if they are in boxes and bags I would assume that it's still safe to eat. My floor is clean and am assuming that not all the packaging plants are AS clean as my floor is...I would never say it is ok to lay bare food on the floor but a bag with Boxes of food in it ....well that is not big deal IMHO. icon_smile.gif (not trying to be a weeny, just a friendly opinion)

I can't imagine cleaning up that mess... how on earth do you get PS out of carpet??? UGH!!!!


Gosh... we all have "bad" dog stories... I feel a little "me too" on this... but, we have a Malamute/Border Collie Mix, a Rottie/Black Lab Mix and a Toy Poodle (don't ask)... Anyhow, the Malamute/Border Collie... thought it would be nice to help himself to 4- 6" sample cakes that I had baked... iced and set on the counter in the middle of the night... thing was... they were all on cake circles... and we couldn't find them anywhere, go figure??? As for the Rottie/Lab... he picks the butter wrappers out of the trash and eats them... seems to have a butter fetish...

What I find interesting is that you all find this amusing that animals are getting into your FOOD, and will have a complete FIT when you hear someone smokes in the house..... What ever strokes your funny bone, I guess.....

You're comparing apples to oranges...I'm sure they don't EAT the food the dogs have gotten into and smoking is gross but has absolutely nothing to do with this post..unless the dogs are smoking inside the house ?? icon_eek.gif

Thanks grama, I was begining to think I was the only one who doesn't decorate in a kennel. Not only are the dogs getting into THEIR food, the dogs are getting into food that people are paying for. I have a visual of dog hair in wedding cake, stuck to a rose that was salvaged. You wanna talk about ishy kaka?!!!!!???

All it takes is one complaint from a customer to the health department and your selling days are toast, and you'll have a nice fine to pay as well.

wgoat5 - I know, sad isn't it. I am beyond fanatic - - - recovering ex-hospitality industry personnel.

If I am making something for others to eat, I whitewash the room, use clorax, rubber gloves, plastic sheeting and nothing human nor animal comes near me or my kitchen!!!!!! Food will never, ever sit on the floor, near the floor nor the ceiling for that matter cuz I haven't just scrubbed it with clorax.

I seriously need help......she says shaking her head slowly in disgust as she snaps on the rubber gloves for the next cooking marathon.

I have an ancient cat who loves butter. To her butter cream icing is the perfect food of the gods. We found this out when we went to deliver a cake one day and came back to her licking the smidges of icing out of the bowl.

I've always put her OUT when decorating and a fully decorated cake either gets boxed up completely, put in the fridge, or put in another room with the door shut. After seeing her eat the icing I'm glad I always took those precautions.

I agree with Grama j and Kansaslaura on this one, we've got to be careful when baking for others in our homes, even if we aren't selling.

I guess I should add here that I have never claimed to be a professional baker, nor do I sell a lot of cakes as I just like to bake and do it for fun. All the cakes that I do sell are to friends who have all been to my house and KNOW my dogs. I guess they find that my kitchen is satisfactorily cleaned or they wouldn't order.

Also, just because we choose to have four-legged fur babies live with us, doesn't mean we are dirty people. I sure don't see anyone making snide comments to those that post in the disaster forum about their children getting into their cakes. Most of us with pets make precautions to keep the pets away from the food prep area. I believe I clearly stated that I keep my pets out of the kitchen and also block them from the dining room just to be safe.

And yes, I DO icon_eek.gif put my groceries (in the bags from the store) on my kitchen floor when I am unloading the car (where the heck else can I put them?????) I really don't see how it's gross and nasty to leave a box of cake mix in a plastic bag on the floor. I used to work in a store and I KNOW what happens to some of that stuff before it hits a shelf, so the last thing I worry about is my floor, dirty or not.

(I hope all you picky people wash your canned goods and cans of soda with soap and water before you open them!!!!)

No offence intended tiptop,but the FOOD doesn't sit on the floor,the BAG containing the BOX or PACKET sits on the floor...do you think the shops bleach all the shelving before stocking ?

I'm behind you tomsmom245! I didn't realize that having pets meant that you should not bake cakes. I am not a professional baker by any means, have not sold a cake to date, just do them as gifts for family and friends. I take every measure necessary to clean extra good prior to doing a cake. I've seen kitchens far worse than mine by people who don't own pets.
No offense to anyone because I respect everyone's opinion. However, I think that tomsmom245 posted her story to give us that do have pets, a laugh, not to gain critisim for having indoor pets.
