12th July: FOWC with Fandango — Accomplice

I will tie this in with culprit and passing the buck……… unfairly!

My 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!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. I worry about this happening all the time – even if Choppy has never showed any sign of going after something on the counter, I know all it takes is one too-tempting item and she is up there.
