    If you find your dog chewing something suspicious on the dog bed next to you, use a tissue or washcloth to confiscate said item. Really, don't use your bare hand for this task. You may think your dog has gotten a hold of maybe a small ornament, or a piece of a toy or something innocuous like that. But if you use your bare hand, you may find out too late that your lovely dog actually snacked in the litter box. [​IMG]

    GROSS!!! [​IMG]

    I have a kitty door on my laundry room door (which is where the litter box and cat food is kept) because this only allows my beagle to stick his big schnoz in there for that very same reason!! Kitty poo is a treat to that nasty boy!!

    At least it is not just my dog. What about kitty tootsie rolls is so appealing? I mean, [​IMG] and double [​IMG]. I have boxes around the house, two in my bathroom with a gate across the door, one in my laundry room turned where just the cat will usually fit, (booda dome) and then one in the front hallway. Usually I can block that one with stuff stored there, but we recently had company, so the hallway was cleared. Just in case they came in through the front door. Dogs! [​IMG]

    Quote:Worst two mine have pulled was the HALF of a squirrel... and more recently the head of the possum they tackled under the shed about a month ago... took that way... so they went and found a backbone... then some nice skin jerky... [​IMG]

    I'd rather have the cat poo.

    Yuck! [​IMG] We were out hiking one time when my dog, (Sweet Pea, same one in my OP) found a backbone of something to eat. I wasn't about to touch it, so I just stood there and waited until she was done to move on. Just after we left, a tree fell in the spot I had been standing. And dogs are so eager to lick us after they eat these tasty morsels.
