How about extracting individual pieces of grilled asparagus from a glass loaf pan on thecounter, without making a sound or moving the pan at all?

My favorite in the food-in-the-pan line: the time that Morag removed a large slice of ham from a frying pan on the stove WHILE IT WAS COOKING. The fact that she's only 20.5" tall made it even more impressive.

And for sheer chutzpah, nothing beats the time (two days after she came to live with us) that she came up to me, put her chin on my leg and looked at me adoringly, climbed halfway into my lap and leaned her head against my shoulder..then, having disarmed me with affection, lunged and snatched my bagel off of the plate in front of me.
I understand that a dog can obtain a CSX, but ... original condition on the counter with the twistie back on.

How about a dog who removes a hamburger bun from a plate on the table with a human three feet away, carefully conceals the entire bun in his mouth, walks past the human and into the other room out of sight before eating the bun?

It depends on the number of crumbs left on the floor of the other room... sloppy surfers leave evidence...

Brenin's motto is "Leave no crumb uneaten." - only thing that ever has to be cleaned off the kitchen floor is mud - and if he'd made it to his destination, there would have been no evidence. ;-)

In this particular case, though, he didn't get the chance; I spotted him tippytoeing out of the kitchen & towards the living room, thought there was something a bit odd about the set of his mouth, and asked him to open up. The roll was intact, aside from a couple of tooth indentatations - I rewarded him for giving it to me by breaking off a goodish chunk and feeding it to him. (Always my policy when I've asked a dog to give up a stolen goodie; feed some if it's ok for the dog to eat, give an alternative reward if it's not.)

Somebody should do a version of the above for dog farms!! -Rich

heh. my favorite is when harriet gets crumbs stuck to her flews. that innocent "who, *me*?" look just doesn't have the same impact when she's wearing the evidence. dork.
