I just got a call from Shane and he was furious. He got home from work and the fridge was open and emptied. Food everywhere. How could Caesar get the door open? I don't think there was anything in there that could hurt him...like chocolate. I guess I'll be washing the floor tonight. BTW, does anyone know how to get rid of a spaghetti sauce stain on laminate flooring???

Wow he's one smart beag /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/tired.gif

Vinegar and baking soda (which won't scratch the floor) can take out just about anything.

You may want to consider buying a fridge lock they make for baby proofing.

Is it possible that the door wasn't completely closed? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/alien1.gif Our furkids know where the good stuff is kept. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/holyshit.gif

I was thinking the same thing. I know that unless the door is slightly open there is no way Daisy would ever be able to open the fridge door no matter how big she gets.

It had to be open slightly. Or else, I did have a dish towel hanging from the handle and he likes to grab those. Maybe he got both ends and just pulled hard? He also tried to frame Emma for it. He put the ketchup bottle in front of her kennel, where she was locked up. We might have to start kenneling him again.

Just remember as you clean, "this will be funny next year when I look back on it. This will be funny. This will be funny." /smile.

I'm so sorry but I can't' stop laughing at the thought. As much as I would want to be mad, I know I just wouldn't be able to stay mad. Like MrsNix said, you'll look back on this and laugh. Just one more great story that Caesar has given you. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/greendevil.gif

A beagle in the fridge is a frightening thought. It would be hard to stay mad though. There are refrigerator safety locks for keeping little kids out maybe you will have to try that.

OMG did he eat loads of food? I can just imagine the mess he made /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif

This is a fear I've had since I got Sherry. She is much more food mad than Rosa and also clever enough to work out how to open the fridge.

For tough stains, try "whistle"...(a "409" type cleaner & "mek")
Aka, "Methol ethel keyone" or try "409" or "Fantastic" with "mek"
, "Whistle" along with "mek" is what we use to remove stubborn
stains from the counter-top laminate at work. (Even "permanent-
marker" can be removed with this formula)!"Thumbup"!

/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/tired.gif Wow! I'm so sorry to here about that but, it's just way to funny! A Beagle can always out smart a human! This furkid who would be Ceasar out smarted his human! The main thing here is did he have a good feast?


P.S. If you have a Wal-Mar near by go to the auto department and ask for tuff stuff. It takes out everything and won't damage your floor!!

The idea of having a dog get into the fridge is only funny in a slapstick kind of way..... like someone slipping on a banana peel (who might actually get hurt). In truth, it can be very scary.

Virginia learned how to open the fridge about 2-1/2 years ago.... in a scary bad episode that included her eating cream cheese and chocolate cake..... then being rushed to the vet's to check her heart rate from the chocolate and needing sub-Q fluids.... followed by her throwing up 7 or 8 times that evening.

She apparently figured out how to apply pressure on the rubber seal in just the right way. Another time I caught her using her teeth (!) on the corner of the door and pulling!!!

As Joe may know w/Murphy, once a dog figures it out, they will persist. I compare it to a slot machine in Las Vegas where there's always a payout. If they get an instant reward every time they break in, they're going to continue to do it.

We now have 2 child safety latches on our fridge door. It's a real conversation piece, but it keeps her safe.
