So yesterday, I was busy all morning getting things ready to make cupcakes. I like to make cupcakes that have fun designs on them, and I was making them for our house church last night.

I baked the cupcakes, and had them on a cooling rack on the stove in the kitchen. While the cupcakes were cooling, I went upstairs to take a shower, and when I got out, there was a horrible burning smell--like electronics burning. I quickly went to the TV, but there was nothing there. I followed the smell to the kitchen, where I found this:

Waldo had taken it upon himself to get on the counter and help himself to the cupcakes--but he turned the burner on high in the process! When I got down there, the plastic foot was molded to the burner. THANK doG that nothing more serious happened. Our stove tends to be a place where things collect, and much more flammable objects tend to find there way onto it.

He ate 19 cupcakes in all. BAD DOG, WALDO.

edited to add: Gus was a good dog, laying right outside my bathroom door the whole time. Poor guy didn't get a bite.

Well at least you hadn't put all the effort of fancy frosting and stuff into them yet ... we bet they tasted just GREAT as they were. Good thing there wasn't a fire! Fire escapes suck!

Sounds like a talented pup to me! But then my momma once caught me eating out a pan that she was cooking in.

Oh, Waldo, no! I'm so glad you weren't hurt and that nothing worse happened. What a scare you gave your mom! (I've never gotten anything from the top of the stove, but I've gotten way too close to the oven when she opens it.) Glad you're okay.

See ya!

Oh Waldo - I totally get it - whenever I possibly can, I rip off stuff from the kitchen which can be a very cool place (or, in your case, scary hot) if the humans aren't watching carefully! I ate half a gingerbread cake once and also almost two heads of cooked broccoli cooling in a strainer in the sink - yummy! But so many cupcakes! You take the cake heehee!
Love and Licks,

When a guy gets a craving for a cupcake or two or twenty, what can he do but just going ahead to eat them!

I woulda helped him if I was there! Where was Gus?

Sounds like Waldo has some Siberian in his genes - counter surfing is one of our specialties. Glad it all turned out OK.

Oh no! That is scary about the stove! I leave stuff on the stove all the time and given that moose is a counter surfer I am going to have to stop that! I never thought about that happening! Glad you are all safe.

Amber and Nala said...

Oh Waldo, you are sooo brave! I don't know if I would be brave enough to do that....the banging noises of things falling would freak me out. Hope they were tasty though. Poor Gus, but at least you were a good should get a treat for that!

Oh DUDE! I would give anything to be as tall and beastly as you! My humans leave all sorts of meats and fishies on the island when they're cooking and I can barely get my schnozzle over the ledge. NOT FAIR! I just need a few more inches. Can you spare some?

Mindy Lu said...

PAW!!! Dude... that was dangerous. We stay away from anything we have to paw up to get to. Mom says she recognizes that black rack too. Good taste! Both of you! PAW! Max the dude!

Shmoo said...

Very nice work, and nearly burning down the house in the process... hmm, you need to rethink that one, remember, homes are valuable assets and where the food is.
