there she goes again (aka I have no idea how this dog doesn’t puke every day)

Oh, Gracie…our sweet, adorable, scampish, bullheaded, never-met-a-thing-she-didn’t-want-to-eat Gracie.

If you’re a long time reader, you know what’s coming.  If you’re new to RFTM, welcome aboard the Gracie crazy train.  We keep a running tally of her dietary hijinks around here.  No embellishment necessary.

**  One unopened can of Del Monte white corn, accidentally left on the counter after a shopping trip.  Gracie stripped the label before crushing and puncturing the can.  Little kernels of corn peeked through the holes while juice seeped into my carpet.

**  Chinese takeout stolen from T-man’s plate.  Apparently Gracie has a penchant for General Tso’s Chicken.

**  Scrambled eggs stolen off the counter and paper towels from the trash can.

**  Phoebe’s dog food, every chance she gets.

**  Moldy pastrami.  Moldy pastrami.  I’ll just let you sit with that one for a moment.

**  A gift bag along with the mini pack of tissues hidden inside it.

**  Cans set aside for recycling are licked clean – Spaghetti-Os, green beans, soup, whatever – Gracie doesn’t discriminate when she’s cleaning.

**  Yet another #2 pencil along with part of a bar of soap.

**  Gracie has learned to pop the top on our bathroom trash can and remove the bucket from inside.  Don’t ask me how, but given some time to herself in there she’ll empty that can and devour its contents.  Last go round that was tissues, used Band-Aids, cotton balls, and tooth floss.  Plus a roll of gauze from the counter.

**  A photo of BrightSide and me on his college graduation day.  Lucky for her, it was only partially nibbled as opposed to devoured.

    • The cuteness is what saves her furry butt every single time.
      I’m truly at a loss about that can of corn. I’m terrified at the thought that Gracie might have actually connected the food she’d licked out of open cans for recycling to the concept that food is in that container, even when it’s closed. Could this dog really be that smart?!

  1. Maybe if you’d feed her once in awhile. . . Oh man, let’s hope she didn’t make the connection that food is in the cans – you’re going to need to get locks for your cupboards.


  2. I feel like our pups are one and the same. Wood, plastic, rubber…nothing is safe with Rocky. Razors, yes, you read that correctly. Our last roommate left a box of toiletries out when she moved in and he got into the razors…how he got it out of his system with no damage is only by the Grace of God!

  3. My lab has started counter-surfing again. We had a hiatus if about 8 years, between the ages of 5 and 13, but now that she’s 14 and can’t do steps, she’s back on the counter. Her specialty when younger was mittens. Now it’s just pizza, naan, apples, eggs, whatever.
