Pictured on your left is Dutch, a 1-year-old terrier who we are fostering. He is a bit of a rascal, and is still committing the types of high crimes and misdemeanors that rambunctious puppies will do.
This evening I heard a strange scraping noise in the kitchen, followed by a loud bang. Dutch managed to stick his nose up on the edge of the sink and topple over a pot containing the remnants of the lobster-stuffed ravioli in a Bolognese sauce that my wife prepared.
Sauce went everywhere, but the good news is that Dutch - with the help of our other opportunistic canines - was more than happy to clean it up. I simply had to fetch the pot, and then go over the cabinet drawers and floors with some spray cleaner and paper towels, which luckily we found on sale.
Dutch, by the way, has much improved since I last blogged about his canine obsessive-compulsive behavior, and you can learn more about this handsome boy at the Planned Pethood website.
