Howling Halloween Hound

So - by now you've probably heard about 4-legged creature. She gets into things from time to time. She doesn't chew on our shoes or anything like that. But she loves food.

Well - the other night I was making some "Sticky Halloween Crunch" for my recipe group. Afterwards, she just kept whining. I was trying to have a meaningful phone conversation with Big-D, okay - well a conversation anyway - and she just wouldn't simmer down. She continued to stand beneath the counter and HOWL - I mean really HOWL because she could smell the Sticky Halloween Crunch cooling on the parchment paper above.

When my kids do this (well, whine - not howl) I let them lick the spoon. So, I take my wooden spoon from the sticky pot in the sink and hand it to the dog, figuring she can suck on that for a while and let me finish my call in peace. Needless to say the "sticky" in "Sticky Halloween Crunch" is a sugary syrup. Well, apparently she had no patience to "suck on that" for a while. In her attempt to BITE OFF THE SYRUP - SHE CHEWED MY WOODEN SPOON TO TINY PIECES!!! There were shards of wood all over my hallway!!! I should have guessed that this Devil of a Dog is one naughty little Ghoul and will do anything for food.

So, about 30 minutes later, she was all hyped up on sugary syrup (I know - I'm a BAD doggy-mom) and PrettyPrettyPrincess was trying to get her to calm down. I took these pictures of her - and they are not touched up AT ALL!!! Do you see what I see??? Perhaps eating "Sticky Halloween Crunch" really brought out the little devil in her!

Spooky!

Thinking it was about 9:30 at night, and the room was fairly dark...perhaps it was a reflection from the flash and the lamp in the room. So, I made my daughter sit in the exact same spot to test this theory!

Nope! She's still an Angel!

Caution: Do NOT feed "Sticky Halloween Crunch" to howling hounds before Halloween!

Too funny. I love the logic that giving the spoon to the kids stops the whining so it is bound to work on the dog.

Which it did of course but now you need as new spoon.

Hilarious! I love that she actually ate the spoon. I must say that Sticky Halloween Crunch was delicious...I can see why she was whining:)

I'm thinking that if I sat YARM13YOL down in the same spot as your dog...she would have those demon eyes...especially while her once a month friend is here...

She's for rent during that time...we pay you to take her.

I don't blame the dog for howling about the treat. I am howling for some right now! I took a bowl home last night and I ate it in like 2 seconds...
