My parents have a young dog, Bella, aged 8 months. Like any almost teenager, she gets into all kinds of trouble, constantly pushing the boundaries. And that leads to some good photo opportunities. Here she is watching the cats with their food. Last week, Bella was standing up with her paws on the keyboard while the cats attempt to eat. A couple days latter, her back feet were on the keyboard as she watched the cats eat. A day later, the dog comes limping out of the barn. And she no longer plays the piano while the cats eat.
Even though Bella won’t disturb the cats, she still likes to check out the kitchen counters. My mom says that she was terrible, eating anything she could find on the counters. That included whole cubes of butter. So my mom prepared a special cube filled with cayenne pepper in the center. Cube disappeared and now Bella leaves all the food untouched on the counter.
