He MAY look cute…

BUT this dog has been the BIGGEST toot lately.

Example #1 — Mom brought banana bread muffins over on Friday.  He figured out how to weasel that bag from the center of the kitchen island down to the floor, where he proceeded to bite a hole into the bag and devour the whole lot. 

Example #2 — He tried TWICE (once successfully) in a matter of 20 minutes yesterday to do the same with a bag of chips that we put WAAAAY far back on the counter. 

Example #3 — {The straw the broke the camel’s back} I made the kiddos peanut butter sandwiches today and walked to get something from the refrigerator (ummm…not far).  This bold doggy made his move and knocked out TWO sandwiches in seriously 5 seconds.  I was FURIOUS!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t even want to admit this, but I KNOW my darn brother will call me out on the blog…so you know what I did?  I put a little Tabasco in his mouth.  And proceeded to put some food on the counter WITH Tabasco on it.  THEN a couple minutes later, he lovingly licked me and we had this 5 minute photo shoot while I cooled my jets.  

He’s SOOO cute to be really mad at.  He’s SO frustrating though.  Any advice?  Pllllease? 

We’re usually really good about not leaving food out…he never used to get food from these far-away spots.  I’ve heard of putting mousetraps on the counter but there is NOOOOO way I could ever do that.  Man!

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, he’s an English Setter.  A guy that’s supposed to be a bird dog.  He usually prefers bugs and lizards (much to my husband’s dismay) BUT I actually caught him (today of ALL DAYS) with a bird in his mouth.  BLECH. 

Thanks for stopping by…  🙂
