C is for Cookie

Do you all know Ruby, the Red Dog who lives in SEDONA, Arizona?! It was destiny that we'd become furiends! Ruby gave me the "Oops, I Ate It" award:

Thanks, Ruby! A dog after my own heart! You all must know by now that I am a counter-surfer extraordinaire.

"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching.
If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."

"If you have never stolen any food..." Sheesh! I only know ONE doggy who has never stolen any food (that'd be the fabulous Mr. Brutus the Frenchie). I think it's in the DNA of 99% of us...dogs are scavengers by nature, after all!

I could tell you about many a stolen tidbit that I have procured in my young life, but I will limit myself to my latest conquest: cookies.

Well, raw cookie dough, to be precise. I have become highly specialized in stealing a ball of dough from the tray as it awaits its turn in the oven. Notice I say "a" ball, since I only have time to snatch one before the gig is up. I've done it twice now and I think it's pretty pathetic that my human hasn't learned her lesson yet. She places the tray at the edge of the kitchen table, turns her back for a second and when she looks again, a single gap appears in her otherwise perfectly-aligned, perfectly spaced, perfectly-identically-sized rows of cookie dough balls (OCD, anyone?). Pretty much like the award picture. And I'm nowhere to be found! BWAH-HA-HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!
Just in case you were interested, the first time was chocolate chip and the second time was oatmeal raisin. And they were dee-lish.

I know that many of you out there have already received this award, so if you haven't and you'd like to confess your own food-related indiscretions, please feel free to take it!


  1. Ah yes: the lightning fast reflexes of woo puppies!

    I'd agree: destiny fur woo and Ruby to be furiends!

    I might have had SOMETHING to write but befur Mom and The Doggy Nanny went to dinner, the pawtential bounty went in the mikhrowave (some blueberry mini-muffins)!


  2. You've got some quick reflexes. :-)

  3. Maybe you should try to snag two at one time next time, but try to avoid the chocolate and the raisins. Mom needs to make some peanut butter ones the next time.

    Congrats on your award.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  4. Wow! You´re so fast with those cookies!
    Congrats on your award!


  5. Congratulations on this award, Sedona! I'm very proud of you for being able to snag cookie balls - something I've yet to do. (Maybe that's cause mom never bakes cookies hehee!)
    Hugs xo

  6. Congratulations on your Award, Cookie Monster!
    Kises and hugs

  7. Good job Sedona. Paws up high for you! I have taken already baked cookies that are on the table. Well I thought they were for me, I found out otherwise.

    licks and sniffs,Sasha

  8. Very sneaky, Sedona! That's stylin'. Don't make a mess and leave 'em thinking. Could have been anyone really, couldn't it?

  9. Sedona! A cookie monster? Really? I never would have guessed it.

  10. A gal after my own heart.
    Bentley has been found on top of the table....after meals.
    We love him still!

  11. So you are a cookie monster, eh? That is a great picture of you, by the way. Thanks for the angelic mention of me, but don't worry - I more than make up for the no-food-stealing with my other quirks!!

  12. Hi Sedona!
    We really love your photos especially the one on your blog header. We hope we can be better friends. Your cookie monster picture is also a hit! We'll try to practice your trick when we get the chance to steal some treats from our mommy.
    Hope you can visit us soon.
