Mischief Monday - My Counter Surfer

While my girl is in a good place overall, one of the habits we have not been successful in breaking is counter surfing. Every night after dinner (and sometimes while we are eating and sometimes after breakfast) you will find Hailey in the kitchen licking the counters. We call her off, we tell her to sit etc. but this doesn't stop her from going back. 

As a good blogger, I made sure to capture some pictures yesterday after our pancake breakfast (one of her favourites), before sending her out.

Cleaning the counters


  1. You mean your Peeps do not appreciate you doing a prewash on the counters????? Sum peeps are just so ungrateful, I finks you are doing a grand job Hailey. I just wish my paws were long enough to have a go at this as well!!!

  2. you are right... good bloggers always take a photo first no matter what happened ;O)))

  3. I wish I could pre-wash the dishes too, Hailey. You are a lucky girl!

  4. Good girl, Hailey! Momma made me stop juuuuust before I got some yummy looking stuffed jalapenos off the counter yesterday. :(

    Do they not understand, Hailey, that dogs can suck the very molecules of flavour from nothingness??? Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  6. My patron saint Old Charisma used to climb up on the dining room chairs and eat food right off the plates. One day one of the humans put hot pepper powder on a plate of food. That worked pretty well. But so did telling the kids not to leave food or dirty dishes sitting unattended on the table.

  7. You're a lucky dog, H. I'd give anything to be able to counter surf. #shortlegs I have to settle for floor-licking. Not nearly as yummy.

    Love and licks,

  8. have long legs...sigh. We're envious.

  9. Dog tongue...better than Frigidaire's prewash cycle.

  10. That's awesome that you can reach the counters. We can barely reach the table.

  11. I will give this to Stanley for some tips. Unfortunately I can't reach the counters.

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  12. Mom had good luck years ago putting mousetraps along the edge of the counters. She may need to do that again as Misty and Timber love to clean the counter.

  13. That is an excellent service you are doing Hailey. We can't believe your pawrents don't appreciate your work.

  14. Oh my gosh, those shots look exactly like Luke in action! :)

  15. I jump and jump tryin to reach da counters.

  16. Too Funny!
    She is quite the character!

  17. What a good kitchen helper you are Lee!

  19. Purrrhaps she was a housecleaner or kitchen maid in a former life????

    Hugs, Teddy

  20. Miss Juliet has mastered the art of jumping up and grabbing a corner of foil...and slowly P U L L I N G it off of the counter and splattering the food ALL over the floor. Her and Romey had quite the feast one night! Grrrrrr!!!!

  21. You all are so funny, what I fur kids will do for
    food. Astro is to short to reach
    I am sure he would be "washing dishes too".
    Thank goodness he stays out of the trash.

  22. Hope she received a good tip for cleaning up😉🐾

  23. BOL!! Nice job Hailey!! I'm too short to counter surf :( I'm pretty sure I'm missing out on a lot of goodies! I ask Nymeria to counter surf for me but she says she doesn't want to get in trouble. What a goodie goodie.
