STUPID DOG STRIKES AGAIN! - Page 3

post #31 of 72
I find it weird that people will freak out and want their entire meal comped if a human hair is found on their food, yet those same people have dogs whose shed hair and dander also wind up in their food....and have no problem with that.

That human hair has what? Maybe some gel or mousse or hairspray in it, while that dog hair may have rolled outside on something nice and smelly before coming indoors, being shed, and getting airborne.

I'm not saying any one of you dog people ranted about human hair...just making an observation. icon_smile.gif

I think the best part of having 2 HUGE HAIRY dogs with huge slobbery tongues is how well they clean the kitchen floor after I get done with a cake....saves me tons of time.... icon_biggrin.gif

cakepro, i totally agree. But I know where my dogs have been.. I know they get bathed regularly can you really say that about the ex-con cooking at the local Waffle House? Where has his hair really been? I'll take my chances with flea shampoo.....

I feel for you. It sounds like my dog Rocky. He decided to eat the wedding cake I made for my friends wedding 15 minutes before I had to leave to drop it off. Oh was I mad at him. But the look of him with BC and cake all over his face was too funny for me to be mad at him for long.

Gosh, I hate to get into a nasty debate, but that's pretty insulting to people who work outside the home in the food industry. My husband isn't an ex con and he's pretty clean....most of the time. icon_wink.gif

I hope all you picky people wash your canned goods and cans of soda with soap and water before you open them!!!!) quoted from tomsmom 245

Yes, I do. Not everyone handling your canned goods washes their hands, they sneeze,blow their noses and drop the stuff. I also clean my kitchen and wipe down everything with clorox solution the only animal allowed in the house is the turtle and if he ever gets into my food OUT HE GOES.

We all have our ways, if animals in the house works for you I am not going to tell you diffrent, doesn't work for me.

" No offense to anyone because I respect everyone's opinion. However, I think that tomsmom245 posted her story to give us that do have pets, a laugh, not to gain critisim for having indoor pets."

Sharon, this is not about indoor pets....... it is about indoor pets getting into food that is supposed to be served to humans.... Post after post is a big chuckle about their animals eating decorations and in some cases entire cakes, cookies, and or ingredients..... either the animals should be contained or the food should.........

I just want to say this...I don't want this thread to get ugly but....I worked in a food packing plant when I was a teen and they are NOT as clean as they should be...

I dont smoke in my house....we have 2 beagles that come inside to sleep in their kennels but do not have free reign of the house...I have a yorkie who weighs less then a bag of PS and Im sorry he will not sleep outside...I find there shouldn't be a problem with pets if you are clean and use extra precautions then you are fine...If you let your dog jump up and lick the spoon that you mix your food with well then that is plain gross LOL.. icon_sad.gif

In my cakes you won't find dog hair, cigerette butts OR let me emphasize this.....bits of LUNCH that you might eat in your kitchen whilst putting your cake together...I clean my utensils 3 times....I soak them..wash them in hot soapy bleach water (because they are stored in my pantry and I don't want dust) and dry them thoroughly. My dog doesn't get in there...(if he could I'd be rich icon_biggrin.gif)

I have yet to find a kitchen with enough counter space to fit 300.00 worth of grocery bags on them. I wish I could afford that many. If you think about it your groceries are in a packet in a box in a bag...the food itself is very far away from "sitting on the floor" .


My tone if I were speaking this is friendly not sarcastic nor hateful, I am just speaking my honest opinion and we all have ours icon_biggrin.gif

Have a great day ya'll icon_biggrin.gif

Justme, it really isn't my intent to offend anyone I was just making a joke. I do work in the food industry. I am the head cook at a local establishment. I just find it very comical that so many people freak out about dogs.

I guess since I do work in the food industry and see a lot of what goes on in those kitchens where people eat, I know that a dog eating a cake is the least of my worries.... You should hear the stories that my friend from the health department (who eats my cake) tells!!


Sorry if I offended anyone...I just think these dog stories (and the people who get freaked by them) are pretty darn funny!![/i]

I didn't mean that those of us with indoor pets (almost typed pests icon_lol.gif ) shouldn't bake. After all I do have an indoor cat. We live in the country and if she wasn't indoors, the mice would be (even though we do have several outdoor cats who claim their mousing skills are good enough that we don't need said indoor cat). My post was rather in the vein of, once we know our pet's proclivity for eating things they shouldn't we should make every effort to keep them separate from food areas, especially when making food for other people. (like the poster with the static mats and kennel)

Oh I wish I had your problem....dog getting into baking stuff. Instead our english bulldog prefers kids toys and cotton batting. icon_evil.gif Just 2 weeks ago, I had to pay $500 for her naughty habit. She got sick after eating who knows what. Took her to the vet and they found a large mass in her intestines. GREAT!!! Well, that mass was cotton, packed solid. 13 inches and the diameter of a nickle. icon_eek.gif No wonder she was so sick.
Now she gets locked up with the puppy everytime we are gone or sleeping!!!!
However, if she ever eats a cake...I'm sure I'll post something on here! icon_wink.gif

No problem, I just get a little touchy about the subject when I know the stringent regulations my husband's workplace has to meet. They are a wholesaler though, so perhaps the rules are bit more stringently enforced. I know where he works, you could literally eat off the floor.

Just a thought though..Honestly, if the dog ate the ingredients or cake, then unless you served his leftovers to people, I think you're pretty safe.

Now if you're running a licensed commercial kitchen and you let your dogs in there....different story entirely.

This coming from a person who changed to a manual can opener that cuts the sides off instead of the top (ugh to electric ones that get nasty and gummy with food gunk) and who absolutely never, ever buys or drinks canned soda...go figure. icon_lol.gif

I am the scat mat and kennel owner. I thought (silly of me) that a door would deter my dog as well. Apparently she uses her big butt (probably so big from eating all that cake and cake mix) to swing the door open!!

I agree that we should try our best to keep them out...but they are pretty darn sneaky. Too bad we love them anyway!!!

I'll still laugh my head off at every doggie or kitty disaster that is posted here. As long as no one actually feeds a half dog-eaten cake to someone icon_wink.gif

Justme50 I read up a long time ago on the can opener thing..... Replace the sucker (if it is a reg hand held type) 4 times a year ( I know costly) BUT you never know what kind of bacteria is lurking on them...I also use a toothbrush and bleach along with a kind of rust remover on the one that I have. Clean every time you use one....no wonder so many people get sick icon_sad.gif . But 10 years ago I would of never really thought about it!

I do see your point. I have 2 indoor pets (one being a 180 lb dog). I do not bake professionally. I only bake for family and friends. I have never charged for a single cake. Those same family and friends eat at my house often. They know that my dogs are inside all the time. I figure if they eat dinner at my house on a regular basis, then they should have no problem eating a cake from my pet friendly house.
My dogs are my babies, if anyone has a problem eating a cake that I made with my dogs indoors then they can just go to Publix.
This is just a matter of opinion. We all have our pet peeves (no pun intended). My dogs being inside is just not one of mine. Now if you leave the shower curtain open, or if I find clothes not on matching hangers, then you have pushed my buttons. HA!
I'm not going to argue the issue. Like I said I see your point and I really do appreciate your perspective!
