Teaching her a lesson = fail

It started out cute. Two puppies pre-rinsing the dishes. Then Envy got in (of course yes I took a picture). But then I noticed she was on the moving rolling bottom rack and thought AHA FINALLY...it's going to roll, it will teach her a lesson, slam in and she'll jump off and "never get on again." I am a big fan of life lessons and think dogs learn better from them then me sometimes....sigh. This dog...was not phased. Notice the other puppy bolted when it moved.

I have a similar problem. Enid is so good about the pre-rinse that she re-arranges the plates Lana walks right on in too. I swear I will shut the door on one of them one day.

LOL. I see that your pups aren't wearing collars -- and that's a good thing.

Jack used to try that, but the outcome was quite different in his case. The bottom rack of our dw has a small hook on one side of the frame. I have no idea why the hook is there, but one day when Jack was still quite young, we found out that it's the perfect size to catch the loop on a martingale collar. You can imagine what happened next.

I was loading dirty dishes and the bottom rack was nearly full when Jack darted in to lick a dirty plate. I said, "Leave it," he jumped back, the loop on the martingale caught on the hook, and the rack started to follow him. Fortunately, I was close enough to grab the other side of the rack before it hit the floor.

So there we were, Jack desperately (and I mean desperately) pulling one way and me the other. The tension between us was the only thing keeping the very heavy rack in the air. I couldn't let go, or the rack would have fallen and the dishes would have shattered. My husband was out in the yard, and I ended having to bellow at the top of my lungs so that he would hear me and come and help. He finally rushed in and grabbed the rack, which released the tension on the collar so Jack could escape.

I think that is the only time Jack has heard me yell that loudly. Needless to say, the kerfuffle cured his dish-licking habit forever. In fact, he still heads for the hills if he's in the kitchen and we so much as open the dishwasher.

Apparently I've learned TWO lessons! Several people have commented on dogs getting a collar caught in the dishwasher! That thought never occurred to me! Thanks for the enlightening moment!!! Envy doesn't always have one on but often does. She isn't right now because her and Augie (the other puppy) enjoy dragging each other around by the collar.

My cat once jumped on my stove while I was removing food from it to bake.

Needless to say, it never happened again. Burned paws + mom freaking out = cat doesn't go anywhere near stoves now

Roses are grey,
Violets are grey,
Everything is grey,
Because Jaina's a dog.

i'd also be concerned about sharp knives. Deck always tried to lick the sharpest knife in the dishwasher first, so we did our best to keep him away from it.

My Mom's min pin jumped IN THE OVEN once. While it was on! I was removing a dish from it and as I was setting it on the counter he jumped in. Scared the heck out of me! He doesn't get too close now when we cook. But still wants to know what's going in or coming out of it.

I'm another one with the collar getting stuck on the dishwasher rack. Luckily it was my hound, and I keep her collar loose enough to slip out of. I would love for someone to explain to me why those notches are there. I see absolutely no reason.

O'h Adara - pictures are so cute...I simply LOVED them all !!
- before I joined DT, I would never tell others, Amy was a pre-wash dish cycle...LOL
- hell, no one even knew Amy slept under our master bed blankets, many years ago (other than Mom/Dad&Son)

As a puppy, my wife first noticed puppy AMY licking everything clean in the dishwasher...with percision of a brain surgeon.
- the best part ----> she even knew what angle to clean off a sharp knife (with her tongue licky) & never cut it once (not ever close, to hurting herself)
Within a few short weeks, young Amy (over a decade ago) didn't even need supervised, in the dishwasher...any longer / it was always our girls treat.
- your pictures are #1 in my books
I just never captured any of these early Amy photos, before DT forum w/like minded owners (aka crazies): "like really - who would understand"...he-he

I am picturing the eventual call and the explanation to the service center, about the needed dishwasher repairs.

One of those instances where you're better off making something simple up, as they'd probably not believe the truth.
