STUPID DOG STRIKES AGAIN! - Page 4

post #46 of 72
Common guys ...seriously? The OP said she doesn't bake as a business, but for friends and family. The dog ate the mix and powdered sugar...did she say she was still going to use it? No, she was just sharing a funny story.
If she said that she was going to sweep the ps off the floor and use it for icing then we can get all riled up, but all she did was set boxed food in a plastic bag on the floor...BIG DEAL!

Anyway, I don't bake out of my home, but I have a big old St Bernard that Twinsy calls Cujo..(my avatar)...she can literally put her big fat head on any counter or table so it gets very tricky where you can put certain things. icon_razz.gif

Ditto on that. With 2 little kids around, always making messes, I always use my dogs to clean up their food on the floor. It saves me tons of time, too!

I love your humor. I have 3 children under 5 and 2 dogs. All I have to do is tap my toe on the kitchen floor and the dogs will come running to clean it up. Even funnier, now the kids are doing it. Tapping their toes that is!!! icon_lol.gif
I still have to mop at least twice a week! And for those of you talking about can openers. I have the old hand crank one. I just toss it in my dishwasher and run the sanitize cycle. When it starts to get rusty, I replace it.

Hey you guys, I didddddddd say that my kitchen cleanliness bordered on obsession didn't I? Egad give me a break, we must lighten up and let it go...... unless of course you clorax your floor then we can talk about groceries on the floor, bag or no bag.

I did love the dog stories and they were funny, but I don't think I could eat at your furry houses icon_eek.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif ....but then you probably wouldn't invite an obsessive old crotchety lady like me anyway, because I would be checking things out with my white gloves. icon_wink.gificon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

Gosh there just isn't any humor anymore, I'm otta here and moving onto another thread...........
...................the seriously disturbed Tiptop says shaking her head again while Cloraxing her computer screen cuz she swore she saw some dog fur rolling by disguised as a dust bunny.

P.S. I do soak the can opener with Clorax also..... icon_wink.gif

Well said tiptop!
You continue on cloroxing your computer, meanwhile I'll head to my closet to color coordinate it! HA!

Ok.. off with my head!

I've been on both sides. My dad decorated cakes for years and had a lab in the house. I've seen what that dog could do. Entire cakes .. GONE! My mother wasn't and isn't the cleanest person either, even as a kid I didn't like eating his cakes. I'm not going to say another word on that subject..

On the other hand, I've been on the licesensed side of the fence, and am currently looking for a store front. (first one closed after divorce and moving out of the area) I know the rules, maybe that's why my radar is on -- all the time. I can be the customer from...ahem.. at restaurants, and don't even get me started on buffets.

Quick story: Setting..salad bar. Guy comes out from the back with a tray of salad dressings in containers. He's gloved. He looks at one kind of dressing.. looks at another..looks back at first one.. puzzled look........ Sticks his GLOVED finger into dressing on the bar.. licks it.. sticks same gloved finger into dressing in the container, licks that too. ~~~By now I'm looking down at my salad and turning as green as the romaine leaves.~~~ He pours the now violated new dressing into the violated old dressing. I wave for the manager who on his way over to my table sticks HIS freekin' hand into the ice and grabs a cube for his coffee............ Needless to say my son never got to pick that place for lunch again.

I would have rather seen a dog run through that restaurant than what I'd witnessed--true enough. But, I will tell you with all honestly, I've seen inspectors come unglued quicker over a hair, any hair, than I have over a thumb on a plate or silverware.

Hang me from the nearest tree.. being in the restaurant/catering/ baking business for 15 yrs left the rules hammered in stone in my brain!! I don't begin to suggest anybody with an animal in the house is dirty. I just know how hair and dander float through the air.

Oh.. and those can openers that don't break the can surface, but rather the seal are awesome!! No lid to slip and fall into the food. Rodents and filth are rampant in warehouses. I wipe the lid and use one of those non cutting openers.

No problem with Clorox here. I use it all the time. My DH even complains that our house smells like a swimming pool. I was just saying how I clean my can opener. I found that Clorox was to abrasive and caused rusting sooner.
I vacinate my children, keep them clean, their stuff as clean as possible, and my house fairly clean and uncluttered. But I won't live in a bubble. A few germs won't hurt you. It helps build up immunity. Maybe when my kids go to school all day, I will find the time to dust and clean everyday. I just love my time holding my kids, playing with them, reading to them, and just doing things for them. That's what they'll remember most.

So here's the kids and animals in our lives. May they always bring you joy and a smile to your face!!! And a little dirt to go with them. icon_lol.gif

No offense taken here. I hope I don't offend anyone. I strictly bake for my family. Nothing like a little debate to get your morning going. My baby is sleeping, so I love coming here and reading. I usually stay out of this stuff. This has been fun though. I love the adult interaction...even if it is thru a computer screen! thumbs_up.gif

These stories are EXACTLY why we have a Dachshund! lol
I am sorry for the disaster stories, but a pup under foot is a small price (figuratively AND literally) to pay to keep little snouts out of our baking supplies and finished projects icon_smile.gif

I too, want to thank everyone for making me smile today! I was pretty grumpy when I got up and when I started reading on here, I couldn't have cracked up and faster.

Nothing like a dog hair debate to make me smile icon_wink.gif

I could live without the sticky carpeting in my living room, though...Guess I better get out the steam cleaner and take care of the remnants of the powdered sugar/cake mix storm that happened in here last night.

To everyone who is disgusted that I didn't clean the carpet immediately last night, sorry but I couldn't because my 1 year old wanted mommy to snuggle him to sleep so I did and enjoyed some sleep myself!!

Have a great day everyone!!

Uh oh....another topic for debate.. Red, raw peely hands...gloves or no gloves? icon_twisted.gif

You'll have to forgive me, I'm just sitting here tapping my toes waiting on a call from the insurance adjuster about my car that was totaled in the fun little flood we had last weekend.....gotta have something to do to keep me from pulling my hair out. icon_cry.gif
