I just had to post this related story. I was given some nice big cukes (3 to be exact) last week. I sat them on the counter top to ripen (wary of our mastiff/shepherd who eats everything!). While getting ready to have my son, his daughter and girlfriend over for dinner my boyfriend suggested putting the cukes on the windowsill to ripen. So we did, then went outside to do yardwork. A little while later he went inside to do something and I heard him yell "WHAT DID YOU DO?!? NOT BAILEY'S!!!! NOT BAILEYS!!!" I went inside to see what the commotion was about and saw cucumeber remains EVERYWHERE! Well, not all the remains, apparently she had eaten 2/3's of one and was playing with another. So she was scolded and muzzled her - to date the only thing that gets thru that thick head, LOL. Put the last cuke up on the counter top. Later we took the muzzle off and let her outside.
So my family arrives, we had a nice dinner, dogs hanging out with us, and I pulled two tomatoes from the garden for sons GF which she sat on the patio table. As it got cooler we went inside. I collected things from the patio table and brought them in, except the tomatoes.....I went out to see if I missed anything just in time to see Bailey taking one of the tomatoes from the table. Geesh! Ok, salvaged the tomato with only two little teeth marks, and gave Kara another. We all went to the fish room/family room to sit for a while before they left. I went upstairs to get a drink and....."WHAT DID YOU DO!?!? NOT BAILEYS!!! NOT BAILEYS!!!" the little brat had my LAST cucumber, well 1/3 of it, hanging out of her mouth! Nothing else of it to be found, she'd eaten almsot the entire thing - AGAIN! Turns out the weirdo has a penchant for veggies! Three cucumbers in one day??? She didn't get sick, nothing, it's as if she's been eating them all along. Yesterday evening she even tried to steal my salad when I turned to get the dressing from fridge!
