Charlie gets his feelings hurt whenever his people have the nerve to leave him home alone. He expresses his irritation by opening the dishwasher, taking out dirty silverware and scattering it all over the house. He prefers spoons (greatest surface area for licking) but will go for forks and whisks too. Mysteriously, silverware has been found on windowsills.
When he gets in trouble he just makes cute faces (aka his regular face). Silly noodle.
Our cocker Cody used to lick all the flatware while we were loading the dishwasher. Mom called it her special pre-wash cycle. Thankfully though he left it in the tray and not all over the house!
With that cute face, Charlie would get away with murder if I was around!!
“was I close?” Hilarious! That’s a new one on me though. I never met a dog who would open the dishwasher. Many probably wish they could . . . .
Gotta give him points for originality! Maybe they make a childproof latch for dishwashers? Might be worthwhile since it is a recurring thing.
