I've scorned your counter surfing dog all these years. I just discovered this morning,I had one also. I was slicing Beef tongue (remember the tongue table re: tribute to Cate's mom?) and I left it on the counter,while I went to read email. I suddenly saw movement in the kitchen and there was Tuck scarfing down 7 pounds of sliced tongue. Oh my goodness gracious, where did he put all of that?
ANYWAY... I owe you an apology.

Wow, that's a lot of food. Hope he is going to be okay.

The late Spencer and Tracy were dedicated counter surfers. We could NEVER leave food out, even if we thought it was "safe."

No food was safe. Thankfully, the home we moved into had a big refrigerator and we could put lots of things on the door, which made it too heavy for Spennie to open. Or at least HE was convinced of that. He could easily open smaller refrigerators. He could also open the broiler and oven doors. He could also open Tupperware or its siblings, without leaving tooth marks. He could open cabinets.
He used objects as ladders to help himself reach high spots, like when he opened the broiler door and stood on it, it gave hime the extra reach he needed to get to anything on the back of the stove.

Smart dogs make us think!
Tracy was more of an opportunist, but I was dumb enough to leave butter out on a counter, but pushed WAYY back into a corner. Tracy earned his "butter boy" nickname by eating a whole stick. YUM!

I had to learn "Never Turn Your Back On Food."
This is one reason we had the odd habit of yelling at and slapping the counters and kitchen trash container when Bella was a puppy. I impressed her and she has never touched them.

Lordy! Seven pounds? I'm guessing he'll be sent to be with no supper?

Nothing to apologize for. Dogs *do* have minds of their own, and they occasionally engage in creative problem solving with undesirable results. I figure that's a (mostly) acceptable by-product of working with smart, driven animals.

Did want to mention that while in search of nutritional information for beef tongue, I came upon a recipe for 'Beef Tongue with Raisin Sauce'.

Talk about vile, and a candidate for The Tongue Table!

You forgot the adjectives "delicious" and "welcomed" candidate for the Tongue Table!

I think you need a time out for even mentioning such a monstrosity.

Sent to bed. I think it's time to send Tara's spell checker to bed with no supper, too.

It is not the form that dictates the color, but the color that brings out the form.
