Kya's Cookie Cache
June 24, 2010 - Meg Alexander
I have a good dog. Heck, I have a great dog. But there are some temptations in life she cannot resist, namely, butter.
Three sticks of butter she has stolen off the counter since our family first adopted her a year ago. How do I know this? I found each one in our bed.
You see, my dog is part greyhound, and greyhounds have a penchant for hiding beloved possessions, which in Kya's case does not include toys and socks and such things, but food. Dog treats she delicately hides beneath couch cushions, buries in the backyard and places under bedroom pillows. And butter ... yup, that scrumptious delicacy, is not devoured in an instant, but smooshed, still in its wrapper, between our sheets.
Yesterday I came home to discover peanut butter is apparently irresistable as well, especially sandwiched in cookies. Strewn across the kitchen floor were the cookies, pulled from the package where my stepdaughter apparently left them on the counter.
Now I knew since so many cookies were on the floor that when I found my hiding dog, she would not be ill. However, that wasn't what I was worried about.
In the love seat was Cookie No. 1. On the futon were Cookies No. 2 and 3. And last night, in our bed, though my husband searched and found nothing, I discovered part 1 and 2 of Cookie 4, each side neatly stuck to each of our pillows. What a thoughtful girl.
