This is a delayed response but....
HEY! My house is SO not furry! I am a clean freak, and only let the dogs in when the weather is bad and when I need them to clean up my children's exteme good mess making ability for me. (Uh oh, I probablly have the animal rights people after me for admitting that icon_biggrin.gif )

Been busy with the nasty, evil adjuster, but here's my baby..he had a rough day apparently.

This is what a Yorkie that has been trimmed for the summer looks like! It ain't pretty, but it's just too darn hot to make the poor thing go around with all that hair!!

Besides, it can get into the food.... icon_wink.gif

Mine isn't allowed in the food, serving or dining areas, but the furniture is obviously all his. Try and make him move off that chair and you're likely to lose a hand.

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



You named your dog ScharffenBarger!!!!

Last night I made beef enchiladas, they were good I must say - but half way through dinner my husband pulled a white cat hair from his food . . . and I said as I do each time this happens (thankfully not too often), "And this is why I can't bake/sell cakes from my home in California!" No matter how careful I think I am, there is always a pet hair floating or lurking somewhere even if the pets are no where near me when I bake/cook. At least it wasn't a cake for a friend! On another note - how are you CCers in the Midwest doing after the floods? We've been thinking of you and hoping people have flood insurance . . . . best wishes from CA.

Whew! Had to catch up on all the replies!

Cute doggy pics! My current baby, Faolin, is my Avatar, an Irish Setter - pictures are on my other computer so I can't post a better one. My last doggie, the one of the previous "adventures" was an English Setter, Basil. Faolin tries his hardest to sneak stuff, but he's much more obvious about it. Basil would wait all day for a chance to sneak the cheesie that you didn't notice had fallen under the desk, but that he had been watching for hours. After he died, I really noticed how many more Cheerios I had to vacuum up!

I do not bake professionally, only for fun and occasionally for family and friends. My dog is not allowed in the kitchen at any time (we keep it gated) and he is not allowed on the table or any counters, although he is tall enough to reach (he keeps trying to drink out of the bathroom tap when it's running - I have to watch I don't spit on his head when I'm brushing my teeth!) (he's also extremely stubborn...sigh)

So I have to be careful where I leave stuff. On the kitchen counter is safe, because he can't get in there, but like any tall dog, he can reach the middle of the dining room table without any trouble. If I don't want the dog to get it, I have to keep it away. No problem. Though you wouldn't think a bag of icing sugar would be that tempting...sheesh! Or a box of pudding? Basil once ate a Bounce sheet. (and promptly threw it up). Who would have thought that would be appetizing?

This thread has been very entertaining. I only have one more comment, and I don't want to offend anyone at all, as we all have our personal styles of living. But as part of my science degree I took a course in Food Microbiology. Honestly, it's a wonder you can ever eat again after taking it! But it did teach me that in general, you keep stuff clean. You don't need to keep it sterile, just clean.

More doggie stories and pics, please! Woof!

Welll.... in response to those who think a "professional baker" cannot have dogs... I say tough cookies. I am state licensed and inspected regularly. My health code inspector knows of my dogs and has met them on several occasions. I have a kitchen that it where I do my baking "exclusively". No dogs allowed! The kitchen has a separate entrance from out side of the house. There has ever been a cake delivered from my business that was "hairy". I resent the fact that people think we decorators who sell cakes are so slovenly that we would allow our animals to access a "sold" cake. Please! The cakes in my story were eaten by my dogs in my home kitchen when I was recipe testing... geeezzzz. Here are my babies...

To those that do not put your groceries on the floor...I have a question.

How do you bring your groceries home? I'm sure you bring them home in your vehicle, right? What kind of gunk do you think resides in your vehicle? Cars are filthy. Dust is in your car. I hope you don't think that putting your groceries in your car is sanitary.

I used to work in a grocery store. I don't want to get into the story of that time a SQUIRREL got into the store and was eating the bread in the bread isle. Go to your local grocery store when they're stocking. They don't handle your stuff with plastic gloves. I wonder what they were touching before they touched the boxes and cans....

this is my clothing stealer.

this dog when he was in his chewing stage ate my couch cushions on 3 occassions. my carpet on even more occasions. several pillows. several pairs of MY underwear; an expensive bra - (we'd just moved here and this one for some reason i paid an arm and a leg for- i only had the one at the time save for an old maternity one lol so i had to wait two weeks for a mail order)

Um lets see yes back to the banquet- ate the zipper off my favorite sweater jacket; would eat the boy's socks only; but leave the cuffs behind... go figure...

oh the couch cushions we found in the yard the next day.. Norman (thats hsi name) decided he didnt want themanymore- i'll leave you to color in that picture...

Not sure what he was leaving us in the living room once when we came home from movie to find little piles in a circle around the perimiter of the living room i kid you not... yah still trying to figure that one out lol..

he's a sandwich short of a picnic but smart enough to get him in trouble lol.

(actualy he's very smart just has impulse control issues like barking lol)

and he's got one of the longest tongues i've seen a dog bear next to the worlds record holder lol..

Meet Norman!

wow. I wasn't offended by anything I have read in this thread..until that.

Lets just hope that ex-con never has the displeasure of serving you. Because everyone knows GOOD people never need second chances.. icon_rolleyes.gif

People give it a rest!!! This is a case where there is no middle ground. As you can see from my avatar, personally I am in the pro-pet side. But I do get it that some people consider dogs to be filthy animals. Which is fine, but those who feel that way aren't going to do anything but insult and offend the canine companion group by implying that their kitchens are not sanitary. This started as a way for people to tell their funny stories about their dogs' food thieving and somehow turned into a venue for making negative judgements about others.

People with fur babies enjoy talking about them; people who don't believe animals should be allowed in the house should skip reading this type of thread because they are just going to be grossed out.

Narie ,

I agree with you completely. I have a puppy named Ceasar and the DH jokes all the time that he is going to be the first dog on the block with the Diabetes. icon_biggrin.gif I love my dog as much as I love to decorate cakes. Because of our blended family and a hysterectomy Ceasar is the only baby the two of us will have together. And we spoil him rotton. Funny stories should be just that funny stories. Maybe we should continue to post funny stories and not respond to the statements , just keep it funny . Just my opinion though. Here is a picture of my baby

Thank you Narie! I was concerned that the UGLY was going to escalate and result in a locked thread!

We no longer have the dog who ate my BC roses, but this is Toby, our fuzzmutt who actually runs and hides when I start the KA!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
