I am in BIG Trouble

Yesterday was Barbara's Junior Puppy class graduation. She always gets special biscuits from the dog bakery for the graduates and bakes some treats for the people too. I love the smell of baked goods. This time she made a nut bread and a pan of milk chocolate brownies.

She put the bread on a rack to cool on top of the fridge and left the pan of brownies on top of the stove. Later she put Ambrose in his crate when she went to take a shower. She forgot about the brownies. I did not.

I could not blame this on Ambrose since he was in his crate. It didn't help that my muzzle was covered in brownie crumbs.

Most of what Barbara said is not printable in a family blog. She did refer to me as a "complete pig" though and said that I was "a bad example to my little brother". To be fair, she directed most of the HBO words to herself for foolishly leaving such temptation in my way. And of course she was very upset because I ate chocolate. Fortunately I am fine.

To further humiliate me she announced to the entire Junior Puppy class that the reason that they only had nut bread to celebrate graduation with, and not brownies, was my fault.

I think if I was in the same situation I would have been a very bad dog, because there would have been NO brownies left in the pan!

It's too bad Ambrose was already in his crate. He would have been a great scapegoat. I'm glad that you're fine after eating the chocolate.

Oops, well temptation was left in your way and its very hard to resist temptation! Glad you had on ill effects from the chocolate!

You cannot help you were tempted and tempted is something we cannot ignore. Your mum should understand that. I bet those brownies were delicious.

Mango said...

Your Barbara sounds like a very sane person. You were just doing what you had to do to see if the brownies were any good. Sometimes the peoples make mistakes and then they say the HBO words at themselves.

I am glad you are OK. I hope now that you have tasted the forbidden chocolate that you don't become a chocolate fiend cause its really not good for you (but you know that).

Well, a dog has to entertain himself somehow during those long human showers, right?

But, but, but, BuuuuuuuT...... She didn't notice that it was a message telling her much you love her? She didn't SEE that the "non-brownie" bit is actually in the shape of a heart? She didn't NOTICE this??????? It was the first thing we saw!

Your Friends,
Tom and Tama-Chan

We bet those brownies were just awesome, Niamh! yummmmmmmmm
Barbara could have just squirt some whipped cream in the hole that you made and no one would have noticed! Whip cream fixes everything mom says!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Oh Niamh, sometimes I feel like doing naughty things just because I get tired of being so patient with Zeke, like jumping up on my mom even though I'd practically stopped. I wish I'd jumped up and got brownies, though - yum! (Glad you're okay.)

See ya!

Lorenza said...

I just can imagine all those HBO words!
Thankfully you are ok!
Kisses and hugs

I guess Barbara discovered that we canines are born with a Thieving Food mechanism.

My Alphas spent over $100 to buy a dog proof trash can for the kitchen. My predecessor, Logo, was so adept at cruising garbage and knocked over the old can at least twice a week. This new Simple Human brand can defys doggie logic!

I am glad you are okay after the chocolate! Please be more careful, Niamh.

Your loving pal,

Uh oh. Well, who can blame you? Barbara knows it wasn't your fault and I'm sure she's forgiven you by now. I'm so glad you're ok after all that chocolate.


Comet and BLU said...

We're glad that chocolate didn't make you sick. So tell us .... does it taste as good as it smells, since we never get to taste any.

We think Barbara made too big of a fuss - after all, you didn't eat ALL of the brownies. We bet she could have served a few from around the sides of the pan!

Oooh yummy!! We would have done the same Niamh!! Mummy once left daddy's sandwiches on the counter while she answered the phone, when she came back I had a WHOLE sandwich in my mouth!! Silly hoomans leaving temptation for us!!
Glad you are not poorly from it! xxx
