Just look at that exquisite technique. Corners are no obstacle for this dog’s tongue. I made a quick and yummy dinner last night – took thin chicken breasts and dipped them in egg, then coated them with a mixture of seasoned bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder. Added some mozzarella with about ten minutes to go in a 350 oven (30-35 minutes total).

Stanley is usually the beneficiary of largesse such as this because Sherman leaves the kitchen following his after-dinner treat and can’t hear the the rest of the clean-up. Stan is incredibly diligent and I am lucky to have him in the kitchen.

  1. Holly is the best at doing dishes also. She cleans Buddy’s dish every day for him. We are so lucky to have such good kitchen help !

    They’re also helpful for cleaning certain recyclables before going into the bin … Josie will spend half an hour making sure a cottage cheese container is perfectly clean before it’s discarded.

    Shotzy and Bartles will lick the dishes after I’ve loaded the dishwasher….(before I start it of course)
    I like Stanley’s prewash n load method better!

    Barney is also my safety director in addition to clean up crew. He stands between me and the stove, so that stove doesn’t hur me. Isn’t that sweet? Jodi will climb into the dish washer if I let her. It’s just part of their daily duties around the house.. πŸ™‚

      Ah yes. Stove patrol. At our house this function is filled by Lily Loaf of Bread. Her job (according to her) is to occupy the kitchen work triangle whenever I’m cooking. It’s incredibly convenient!

    Henry and Cody also pre-wash dishes before we start the dishwasher.

    This reminds me of when I was a kid. Our dog used to lick dirty dishes so clean that they looked like they never had food in/on them. My father used to say “we can put this right back in the cupboard” and opened the cupboard door like he was going to do it. All us kids used to go EEEW!

    We have friends who swear that one night, when they had a guest for dinner, they actually did put a dog-clean dish back in the cupboard. Their guest was so gobsmacked he couldn’t even respond. (Of course, they were just having fun with him.)

    Lately Baci has been taking the licked dish into the dining room for further attention — as long as it’s not too heavy.

    JB and Cassie aren’t allowed to lick things in the dishwasher (too many sharp things like knives and forks for tongues to be cut by!) but they do get treats from the table whilst we’re eating. They also get to clean things out like empty ice cream cartons, cake boxes etc, which they do most carefully and thoroughly – there’s not a scrap left when they’ve finished! One of their favourites is yoghurt, which is great because a dog walker friend who is also a nurse advised me that live bio yoghurt is great for curing doggy upset tummies (runny poos). We’ve found it does work, it takes a couple of days but is far better than going to the vet everytime they eat something that disagrees with them (always something disgusting they’ve found whilst out on a walk!)

    This is off-topic, but someone should tell Sherman, perhaps using ASL, that this week is Deaf Dog Awareness Week!

    Laurie, that dinner sounded so good that I just bought some thin-sliced chicken breast while I was at the grocery store. Cute beagle photos AND great dinner ideas – can’t beat that!

    Clearly there is no reason for a dishwasher as the dishes will be fine once he is done with it. My husband calls it the prewash cycle!

    I am so glad I am not alone in passing on the dish to the dogs. πŸ˜‰ Of course I normally have to split it into two bowls for both dogs. HAHA

    Sam and Sweetum’s Mom – That is what my husband calls it, too. ha

    I also discourage licking once a dish actually reaches the dishwasher due to sharp objects. However, I tend to pass them from the sink or table to the dishwasher very very slowly and at approximate licking height. πŸ™‚
