The Dog Tried to Make Brownies

This is how my weekend without internet started.
I walk in the door to let G-dog out at around noon Friday and notice a bottle of vegetable oil on the rug in the living room oil spots on the sisel rug and the cap next to the bottle AND a bitten but not eaten box of brownie mix on the floor under the dining table.

Me: (calling out) G-dog!, (waiting) G-dog!

G-dog: (Comes out of bedroom, sleepily blinking eyes and wagging tail) Dude, I was sleeping. What's up.

Me: What did you do?!

G-dog: Well I ate the treats you left for me. The one you hid under the pillow was hard to find. Relaxed a bit, got bored with moose, rabbit, squirrel, et al and went into the kitchen to find something to do. I went in to the room I'm not supposed to and decided to make brownies.

Me: Brownies.

G-dog: Yeah. So I got the brownie mix out and then realized I needed vegetable oil so I went and got that. Then I realized the oil was in a plastic bottle and you know how much I like plastic bottles.

Me: Uh-huh

G-dog: So it started innocently enough, I was working on getting the cap off then I bit the bottle and it felt so good I continued. Then I tasted the oil and decided, ick! So I dropped it on the floor and nosed it around a few times, trying to get the oil out and eventually I went back to the brownie box and realized that I needed eggs AND water too. Well I had water in my bowl but the eggs are in the fridge and I couldn't reach them so I abandoned the whole brownie idea and went back to the bedroom and took a nap.

Me: So you do realize that you can't have brownies. They are chocolate and not good for you.

G-dog: Really!? Huh. Well I guess it's a good thing I didn't make them then.

Funny! And to think you could have just yelled at him! See it pays to listen to the whole story!

Powder helps get up oil if you need any ideas.

Poor G-dog was hungry, hungry for brownies.
Too funny!

Man! That's one articulate dog!

You have a dog who takes the initiative! My dogs prefer to steal what we've made. They don't go the extra mile and try to make it themselves.

That's funny. So glad to know that he has a good head on his shoulder and he knows his limitations (ie..can't get to the eggs).

Reminds me of the time the dog and cat conspired to get the new bag of dog treats from the top cabinet while the (now ex) husband and I were at work.

G-Dog is a genius!! I had no idea.

excellent blog. You had me chuckling through the entire thing.

*glares at blogger for not letting me leave a comment... TWICE*

Ok so this was funny as hell, but really, I think G-dog was lying to you. There was no way G-dog was trying to make brownies. G-dog just wanted to make the brownie mix and eat it out of the bowl. It's totally better than the actual brownies.

So funny! I like G-dog.

Sounds like a terrible mess... So glad our dog doesn't like to cook!

The Adventures of G-Dog...am I seeing a new blog...

Sidney said...

Hysterical!! And a very smart dog.....

Candid Carrie said...

You left out the part where G-Dog found your stash of weed and that is why he started making the brownies in the first place.

See people, now the entire story makes more sense, doesn't it?

You freaking crack me up. That G-Dog she is such a character.

This is totally proof that my talking cat is completely unoriginal - just a scargosun knockoff.
