The Department of House-land Security Has Issued an Alert -

You can not be too careful in today's times - please be on the alert to suspicious behavior in your kitchen.


  1. I'm a bit short but Stanley is on it! If he smells something, he sniffs so hard mom says he has his vacuum turned on.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. DARN IT, ABBY.... you are SOOOOOO tall and Lucious... I have never SEEN a counterTop. Just sayin... .. from your Frankie...

    1. I had to stand on my hind legs but I snagged a egg and bacon filled empanada or two off the cooling rack one morning. . heheheheheh..smoochies Abby Lab

  3. There's an awful lot of suspicious behavior in our kitchen from the canine and the feline sides.

    I spotted some very debatable behaviour by a certain Remus Dog Selvadurai here in sydney today; his excuse was that he got so over-excited to have me back after a week away in QLD (where they apparently don't know about etherwebs...) that he just had to scale the back of the couch, which just happens to back onto the kitchen counter...and the christmas cake lying there must surely have been planted to trap this poooooooor starving lump of a.....ahem.... cuddlesome cutesome doggy.....
    Abby, your warning could not have been more timely! HUgs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. SHH!! Don't put the peeps on alert!

  6. My dogs wouldn't be that subtle. . . they see it, they want it, they take it. Then I get the innocent face looking up at me.

  7. That's Joey dog in his younger days.

  8. my tongue is not long enough for that technique... so I have to grab it the old-school way hehehe
