So how does one lead the kind of life where one leaves chicken nuggets in a toaster oven and then leaves the house?

I would like to play a video game in which I am (perhaps various, possessing different strengths and weaknesses) a dog and I have to manipulate various objects in rooms to achieve different doggy goals. Get on that, internet. This would be a level somewhere in the middle; I'm thinking final stages would include driving cars while wearing sunglasses, etc.

If you read the comments, the YouTube poster suspected the dog of something like this and decided to set some nuggets to cook, turned on the camera, and then left to run errands.

I love how, after Lucy get the chair in place, she jumps up on it, pauses, and jumps back down on the floor for a moment ("No! This is wrong!") -- but then jumps right back up, leaps to the counter, and goes for it ("Fuck that, it's CHICKEN NUGGETS!")

I did. It's also in the title of the video. My point it who does this? I don't even run upstairs to pee if I have something in the toaster oven. Leaving the house seems like a bad idea. Letting your dog have access to a heated oven also seems like a bad idea.

This is some world class stupidity. It's like a Bond or Batman death trap. "Now that I have explained my evil plan I will go on my merry way and let the death ray slowly kill you."

Makes no sense.

Crafty! My dog growing up devised a system where anytime you were just putting the finishing touches on a sandwich, he'd go to the front door and bark like someone had pulled in to the driveway. Then when you went to check, he'd take the other path (you could either go through the living room or down the back hallway), grab the sandwich, and be halfway through it in the backyard by the time you figured out what had happened. We caught on pretty quick, but I'm sure he still got a good ten sandwiches out of the scam.

People always want smart dogs. No. Give me an average intelligence any day.

So how does one lead the kind of life where one leaves chicken nuggets in a toaster oven and then leaves the house?

Based on some of the "Can I eat this?" AskMe questions* and answers, there are plenty of people who would cheerfully store chicken nuggets in the toaster oven for the afternoon, then eat 'em.

*Since I started blogging periodic round-ups of the "Can I eat this?" questions, my daily referrer logs are packed with people asking questions that make me worry about their health. It's amazing to me how many people think that, for example, shellfish left out overnight at room temp miiiiiight still be good to eat.

Also, we have a puggle and this one time in her relentless pursuit of food, she got one over on me.

There's a street around here where some asshole neighbors are constantly chucking cooked bones near the trash. Dogs can't have cooked bones because they splinter. And Apple grabs any she sees and then I have to yank them out of her mouth and it's unpleasant for everyone. Fortunately, she's not a biter so there's just a lot of drool and obstinate head-wagging involved.

Anyway, one time I see her darting toward a bone, and i pull her to my other side and kick the bone into the street. And as I turn to Apple, she's got a fucking Pop Tart in her mouth.

The damn dog tricked me.

I go to beagle meetups in Toronto with one of my pups and they have a "baddest beagle" award every year. This year it went to a beagle that jumped on or at the stove and turned it on and set the house on fire somehow, trying to get at a pot or slow cooker left on top. Beagles are a combination of stupid smart and scary dumb when it comes to food.

Reminds me of the classic Beagle Escape video.

We had a couple dogs who were similarly crafty. They figured out when we were home and when we left, they'd dig out and wander down to the VFW hall just down the road and hang out getting food and attention all day, then come home right before we got home and act natural. The only reason we even caught on was one day were were on holiday and saw our dogs hanging out at the VFW surrounded by old guys, who spilled the beans on them.

The dogs also did such a good job with the "WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!" routine that we had to show ID to prove they were actually ours. Fuckers.

They were also the animals that'd get so spooked when one of them farted that they'd wind up barking louder and louder out of sheer terror from the Fart Monster.

I had a beagle who, once while I was away, jumped on a table and took the lid off of a cookie jar, without breaking either the lid or the container, in order to eat all of the cookies. She was wonderful.

Man, this just goes all against my anthro classes in college back in the olden days when we were told that primates (and anteaters) were the only tool-crafting animals.

I guess if I were going to choose a dog to use a tool, it would be a lemon beagle. See, e.g., Cute Dog Maymo.

Ghostride The Whip, that video is outstanding! Not only for the escape itself, but also for the boards at the top of the door indicating that this had happened before, and for the reactions of the fellow beagles, watching all "this shit cray man" as he climbs and then the automatic wild tail wagging when the escape is complete!

Beagles seem to be either dumb as a bag of rocks or uncannily smart. Many times, it seems like the same dog is both at different points in time. But remember, they're bred to be extremely focused on tasks at hand and can be single-minded in their pursuit to the point that they'll run in the middle of a street to chase a week-old scent. It just shows itself in different ways depending on the muttski.

I always had it in my head beagles weren't the smartest pups in the pack due to rankings like these (#92), but that's a brilliant little bitch right there.

my favorite food-swiping moment with my sheltie mutt was after I'd just gone shopping, and I realized an entire baguette missing from my trader joe's bag. then I noticed dirt all over the carpet. then I noticed dirt all over his face. then I saw part of a baguette sticking out of a house plant.

Beagles are ridiculously smart! I was once visiting friends who had this beagle Neko, and as soon as I put my stuff down and left the room, she somehow got candy out of my purse and ate it! So then I put my purse on a desk, I THOUGHT out of her reach. No. She got MORE of my candy and ate it (it's not like my purse was full of candy either, it was just two packs!). So THEN I put my purse on a high shelf.

And Neko UNZIPPED MY DUFFEL BAG and fished out my toiletry case to try and steal my toothpaste!

I really thought I was being pranked, but no, that dog was just really hungry. Another time my friends had a cookout and she ate an entire bag of hot dog buns.

I will go to sleep with the wood stove still burning when it's cold. Cats and a toddler have unrestricted access to it as well. Nobody has died yet and the house is still standing.

The only reason I wouldn't leave the house with food cooking is because it'd be either burned or cold when I got back.

"Beagles are ridiculously smart!"

Nah, beagles are one of the dumber breeds of dog, actually. They're usually in a pack for hunting and have one brain between 'em. But they will be single-minded in pursuit of food (which can include rooting through trash for dirty diapers).

I used to think beagles and other hounds were dumb until I took in Maeby, my Found Hound. When you're paying attention she acts all doofy, then when you turn your back for a moment she plots to take over the world. Her palace coup was so smooth we literally didn't notice it happening, and probably wouldn't have except for our supernaturally observant dog trainer friend. Now Maeby sleeps where she wants, decides when playtime is and has first pick of treats. She's no evil genius but boy howdy she ain't dumb either.

Animal problem solving is pretty cool
Fig. 1 Birds that had been trained to climb and peck but never
to push did not push the box in the test situation (a). Birds that
had been trained (i) to climb and peck and (ti) to push the box
aimlessly for long periods of time pushed the box over much of
the floor space of the chamber. The birds rarely looked up while
pushing. One of the birds stopped pushing in the appropriate place
and climbed and pecked the banana after having pushed for more
than 14 min (b). Birds that had been trained (i) to climb and peck
and (ii) to push the box towards a green spot placed at random
positions along the base of the chamber solved the problem
efficiently and in a manner suggestive of human problem-solving
behaviour (c).

My favorite part was where she pushed the chair close to the counter, then at 1:18 looked up and, obviously realizing the chair was still a bit too far from the counter to permit a smooth transition, pushed it closer before trying it out.

That momentary pause for critical reassessment of the effectiveness of her plan in progress made this whole thing just that much more awesome.
posted by darkstar at 8:11 PM on January 23 [5 favorites]


She didn't jump back down off the chair because she was taken by a sudden compunction--she's just such a fat exemplar of her breed that jumping from a stationary position atop a chair is harder than jumping from ground-to-chair-to-counter in one motion.

Hmmm...how'd that dog get so fat?

Years ago, I took Tikko for a walk to Louie G's to get ice cream. Strawberry cone in hand, it wasn't long before I somehow dropped it on the sidewalk, and Tikko lunged for it. I stopped him, let him have one lick, and then dragged him away and started walking home. He whined and cried and pulled, so, out of pity, I let him back for one more lick. He swallowed the whole thing.

Another time, we were walking in the park, and Tikko somehow found an entire bamboo skewer full of shish kabobs that must have fallen from a bbq. Before I could stop him, he swallowed it whole - 12 inches of skewer and wads of meat. Just as I was picking him up to run to the vet, he barfed up the skewer, intact but meatless.

He also ate the mortar out from between the bricks in our exposed brick wall. But he refused cilantro.

In conclusion, Tikko was a dog of contrasts.

How did he ever suspect that the dog was doing that? I am sure the chair and the tray weren't at all clues.

(I once stayed somewhere where the resident cat went into my purse and ate my croissant. In my bed. While I slept through it. My parents' dog once ate an 8 pound cooked brisket. Unfortunately he has a sensitive stomach.)

But what I do have is an island full of crows.

I left my shopping on the deck of my boat prior to picnicing and went below to get plates and knives. When I came back I discovered the crows had:
opened the shopping bags,
pulled out the sealed deli paper bags,
carefully unpicked the taped closed end of two bags,
extracted the cooked sausages,
removed and discarded the wooden skewer,
flown off with the entire hot cumberland sausage.

Crows are scary.

My parents have two dogs, and I'm convinced one of them is putting on a show of how stupid she is, to get everyone to let their guard down. This dog has gotten visibly spooked by the same ceiling fan, every time it's been turned on, for the past eight years. She walks into closed doors; she sometimes appears to forget her own name; I've seen her sitting confused in her dog crate, whimpering to be let out because she doesn't realize she's facing the wrong way and the (open) door is behind her.

Yet when I was there for a Christmas a few years ago, we all spent twenty minutes accusing each other of nefarious misdeeds, because the giant spoon roast we were going to make for dinner was nowhere to be found--there was just an empty, blood-stained plate in the refrigerator. Accusations were getting heated, until this dog finally deigned to stand up and lurch across the kitchen. This is a tall dog, and her stomach was all but dragging on the ground; it was all she could do to brake her own momentum when she finally collapsed on the heating vent. In recreating the steps leading up to the event, we determined that the roast had been left on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, and the dog had seen it go in. Apparently she knows how the fridge door works, and had been sitting quietly on this knowledge for a long time, waiting until just the right moment. 4 pounds of raw beef later, she pounced.

Unlimited appetite, indeed.

I know beagles are smart and all, but why aren't we just assuming that they taught this dog this trick for viral video purposes and the "secret hidden camera" was operated by someone coaching the dog? I swear I heard the word "up" when the beagle first jumped on the chair. Also, I am a bit suspicious to notice that the beagle waited to hear the timer beeps indicating the nuggets were cooked before moving the chair to go get them.

Having lived with two beagle mutts and being friends with the humans of several others, I can attest that the chair-climbing and understanding auditory indicators seems extremely common, even if it's rarely a...desired trait. These are dogs who have had the initiative to learn how to open doors, reach heights they shouldn't be able to get to, and gain access to storage spaces that would otherwise be verboten. They also usually managed to get stuck after doing that, but it didn't stop them, even in the face of our mocking laughter.

One New Year's Eve our dog did this with the entire cheese platter we'd left on the kitchen counter momentarily unattended. A big hunk of Stilton, another of Port Salut, and a hefty slab of Emmental. Vanished without a trace, until later CSI-type sleuthing uncovered the spot where the dog had thrown up and then [SPOILER WARNING: DISGUSTING] licked up his own vomit, leaving nothing behind but stinky crusty spot on the rug and a very logy dog.

This is the same dog that would open the cabinet where we kept his kibble, gobble up all day, then close the cabinet door before we came home.

My dog would have pushed the chair back into place.

We absolutely had this dog when I was a small child. She once knocked over two living room lamps, one right after another. We humans went running to see what had happened, and while we cleaned the mess...she ate the entire pizza that we'd left on the kitchen table.

Also the garlic bread.

She was a six-pound puppy at the time, but was not ill even for a second after this digestive feat.

It does seem like it could be a rehearsed trick. The idea of leaving something cooking in the toaster oven and vacating the house seems weird - wouldn't you be worried that the dog might get hurt or burned?

Lucy is more likely to get hurt the more this happens. Setting it up so it happens is the easiest way to gather information so that you can stop it from happening in the future (without giving up baking in the home).

I believe that the owner left the house so that Lucy would feel free to do what she wanted. To make it most likely that she would try something if she were ever going to try something.

This whole thing was a set-up; the chicken nuggets may not have even been intended for human consumption. And toaster ovens generally turn off automatically after the ding so it wouldn't be much of a fire hazard (not something I would do a lot, but once, for science? Sure! Anything!)

And Lucy wasn't waiting for the ding; she was on the island because she was going for the nuggets and that is when we hear the ding. She likely got interested when the nuggets started getting warm and therefore fragrant.

As to my second point, we had dogs that were not allowed on most of the furniture. When we were around they'd stay off. When we'd get home they'd either be up and excited greeting us or on the floor, almost always.

Because there'd be the rare times when we surprised them on the couch or a bed. They'd get up sheepishly; they knew they were not supposed to be on the couch. So it wasn't that they were good, it's that they were (fairly) good at not getting caught.

If there had been any mystery about this we could have set up video cameras and would have certainly left, probably for the six hours the videocassette had on it.

It was only after Roscoe the labrador ate 48 doses of chocolate-flavored ex-lax (the jumbo box, a 40th birthday gag gift left unattended for mere seconds) that we discovered the one thing he wouldn't ingest: the hydrogen peroxide recommended by the emergency vet to get him to throw up the ex-lax. This was a dog who would eat the plastic bag along with the stolen loaf of bread, and who had merrily chewed on turpentine-soaked rags as we chased him around the yard trying to get them back, but hydrogen peroxide was somehow beyond the pale for him. We had an interesting time mixing it with various other substances, trying to find something he would lap up without it bubbling out of control. Chocolate syrup finally did the trick. I remember spending the rest of that rainy day in the garage with him, because he wasn't allowed back in the house until we had gotten significant results from one end or the other.
