When you have a dog like Delilah, holidays can be challenging. Because siriusly, any time you’re working with food, Delilah has to be there.
You know, just in case you drop a crumb.
We hosted Thanksgiving this year and I can’t tell you how many times I said, “Get out of the kitchen” on Thursday. After about the 10th time, I put her in the bedroom and put a gate across the door and finished my food preparations.
When everything was ready, I let her out again. Now the fun begins. Keeping her from stealing food off the table.
We had 11 people for dinner and the table only seats six, so we added a little card table. This means the food can’t all fit on the table, so we used the breakfast bar for the dinner food and as soon as dinner was over, we cleaned up the food and put it away.
But then came dessert. The dessert foods went out on the pool table which is a little bit taller than the breakfast bar or table. Did that stop Delilah?
Yes, yes she is THAT bold. And she did it right in front of me too.
I don’t know about you, but I want to get as much as possible out of my turkey. So as soon as everyone had packed up their goodies to take home, I put the turkey in the stock pot to start my turkey soup.
Remember last week when Jackie Bouchard asked, “So… how does she get stuff out of the sink?? Is she that tall? Does she jump up on the counter?”
There you have it Jackie, the stove is no higher than my sink. I swear this dog could walk on two legs. Truthfully I was more worried about her burning her paw, then her licking the pot but it didn’t seem to phase her.
