Oh MAN! I was really looking forward to that little steak for dinner. Yeah. you know where this is going. It was MY fault, though.
Left it on the counter, all seasoned "just right", went into the bathroom (of course the rogue followed me in there), returned to the kitchen and gave all the dogs treats. Uh... while I was treating one little dog, Flynn snatched my steak off the plate! DAMN! Well, I guess he kind of got fair dues on that as Megan latched onto the other end of the piece of meat and gave Flynn a run for his money on it.
Now, I've NEVER done this before but tonight? Before I could even stop to think of the right thing to say or do? I bopped Flynn on the nose with a dish towel and said.... (oh GOD I hate these words).... BAD DOG! OUTSIDE!
He went out alright. And Seamus ( GOOD dog!) right behind him.
After enough time had elapsed I let Flynn in. (He could have come through the doggie door anyway but he knew it was an UH-OH situation). God bless Sheamie... if Flynn wasn't going to be allowed back in, he wouldn't enter either.
Oh man. It's such a banal event but maybe it was worth a post.

Oh, I would have been enraged - and the dog would have been in orbit.
While mine are not countercruisers (knock on wood) I usually put meat I am marinating into the microwave for safekeeping until I put in on the grill.
Hope you had something else for dinner!

Anyway, in spite of it all, the boy is alive tonight and will cuddle up next to me at bed time.

I gotta say, your story made me smile! Daisy took a nice big bite out of my fiance's sandwich today, though in all fairness he did have it on a TV tray that was about level with her nose. He just laughed, tore of the rest of the piece where her teeth marks were, and the two of them merrily munched their lunch.

Oh well...Cinnamon knows the term "bad girl" and hates it.
Love the all for one and all for one mentality of both boys.

Java isn't a counter surfer either...or a table surfer, thankfully!! My son and his girlfriend left pizza on the coffee table and Java just sat and stared straight ahead, would not look at the pizza or touch it. They even left the room with the pizza on the table and still she didn't so much as lick it. While eating the pizza my son dropped a big gob of cheese on the floor...Java was sitting there, staring at the floor, not moving. My son could not figure out what was wrong with her....I told him he must have dropped food on the floor and she was staring at it but wouldn't touch it until she got the "OK" command. He gave her the OK and she ate the piece....we're very lucky with her.......unfortunately, Moka is a different story. Grabbed my son's homework off the table and ripped it to shreds..she has no boundaries.
I'm sure Flynn has forgiven you for the BAD DOG thing!!
Oh, Flynnie! HOpefully it was worth it!
Mine don't understand the bad dog thing. They don't feel they are ever bad, they just sit there wagging their tails! Grinning.
Perfect time for this story Nancy, although I'm proud of my dogs. Yesterday hubby got a pack of two steaks out of the freezer and set on the edge of the stove. The routine is he leaves them there and when I come upstairs from working out, I put them in the fridge when I pack my lunch. Well, guess who forgot to put the steaks in the fridge? Me, oh yes. I called hubby and told him, and he said don't expect them to be there when we get home! Well, guess what? They were right there, the dogs didn't touch them. The sad part is we couldn't eat them after being left out all day. So the dogs got them anyway. I think they deserved them for not being counter surfers!
Sorry Nance - but this made me giggle.
Was it raw or cooked? Just curious.
