RE: Re: OT- For the dog owners

When Bill and I were first married, our little toy fox terrier "Topper"
found a jar of Vaseline in the bathroom and pried the lid off of it with his
paws and his teeth.  He was very resourceful.  He ate the entire jar of
Vaseline as it was licked clean!  He did get his system cleaned out and
never touched another jar again, but I had always wished we had stored the
Vaseline on a top shelf instead of one waist high.  (He was quite the
climber and jumper for his 5 lbs.)  He too was very good about not touching
"people food," though he would certainly act like a vulture and watch every
morsel anyone put into their mouths!  LOL!!!  I agree with Daryl that even
the best trained/behaved dog will slip up now and then.

I've had dogs for more than half a century. One thing I've learned is that
even the best-trained dog will slip now and then.

Take my dear old Hermann, for example. He would turn his head away from
goodies on the table, or even on the coffee table when we had friends over
and they were choice party morsels made of things he loved. He'd do
headstands for Rumaki or Fois gras (am I really that old? I don't think
anyone eats that anymore) , but wouldn't touch it on the table even when we
weren't in the room.

Let him get a whiff of butter, though and he'd do almost anything to get it,
including climbing the drawer handles to get to the kitchen counter.
