I will tie this in with culprit and passing the buck……… unfairly!
tail tale involves 2 dogs and a turkey.
You can probably guess, but I’ll tell you anyway.
As was the norm, I would cook the Christmas turkey for the family overnight, thus leaving my oven free for everything else, especially when the last few years involved entertaining in-laws, Ex wives and foster kids on Christmas Day.
Stupidly, I left the cooked turkey on the worktop, though pushed right to the back and out of reach of the dogs (or so I thought).
I came down from my shower to find the collie looking bemused with a drumstick sticking out of his mouth like Churchill’s cigar.
His accomplice in crime was the GSD, looking totally innocent on her bed as if butter (or turkey fat) wouldn’t melt.
I knew it was her who’d nicked it though, as the collie was just a pup and couldn’t reach. Luckily for us the bone had come out intact leaving the meat on the bird, because, as always, it was cooked to perfection!
