    And dogs learn bad behavior. Every time they sneak food and get away with it, they're rewarded with an interesting if not actually yummy meal.

    So that makes them even more motivated next time.

    So all the people who say to me, "my dog gets into chocolate and chicken bones and whatever else all the time, and he's always just fine!" I usually just shrug.

    Because that person's dog has a much higher probability of a fatal encounter than, say, my dog who may happen across a house guest's chocolate bar in their open suitcase.  The chances of my dog funding a chocolate bar is pretty minimal, and I manage my house and my dogs (and frankly, my house guests) so the dogs can't get near anything dangerous.

    For the other dog owner, though, it's just a matter of time. Do catastrophic injestion accidents happen to cautious owners? They do. But the chances are much lower.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
