~“Thank God they didn’t start a fire”~

Published: Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 11:24 AM.

My daughter and some friends had been making s‘mores outside over a fire pit the previous weekend. Evidently, they left the graham crackers, Hershey bars and marshmallows within reach of Doolittle, my 92.5 pound Standard poodle.

Doolittle and Maddie (miniature poodle) had drug the graham crackers, the chocolate and all the makings into the den in front of the fireplace. The previously unopened box of graham crackers was devoured and two of the Hershey bars had been consumed. The marshmallows and peanut butter have not been found.

They decided to have some sort of party in front of the fireplace while we were at church.

Doolittle tried to hide as soon as we came in the door. It is hard for a 92.5 (plus a little more) pound poodle to hide.

What do you say?

I say, “Thank God they didn’t start a fire.”

If you didn’t know it, graham crackers were invented in New Jersey by a Presbyterian minister named Sylvester Graham.
