We interrupt regular our Yalu blog to bring you another thrilling story about a puppy dog I once knew. The puppy dog in question was a Golden Retriever named Chelsea and she loved DiMamma’s cooking.
One of DiMamma’s specialties was lasagna. This was not store lasagna. DiMamma cooked this from scratch.
One day, DiMamma cooked a lasagna in a tin pan. When the buzzer blew, she took this fine creation out of the oven and let it cool on top of the stove. Usually, the completed lasagna would be immediately consumed. That was when something happened.
Time passed—a whole lot of time. People in the house left to do other things leaving a guard dog named Chelsea in charge. Doing so proved to be monumental people mistake.
All Chelsea wanted to do was enjoy just little bit of lasagna. With no one around, she managed to get the tin pan full of cooked lasagna down from the stove.
Now what? People could come back at any moment. Chelsea had to make a decision. She moved the lasagna to a super secret location. The next problem was how much of DiMamma’s lasagna to try. One bite was good. Two bites were even better. Once she started eating, there was no stopping—DiMamma’s lasagna was soooo yummy.
More time passed. The lasagna remained hidden. People come back to the house. Everything seemed fine until someone asked, “Where’s the lasagna?”
People checked the inside side of the oven and found nothing. Maybe someone put the pan in the refrigerator—nope, nothing there.
DiMamma questioned people. No one knew what happened to diner. Meanwhile, a Golden Retriever puppy dog named Chelsea sat on the couch, her head down with a quiet look on her face. No one would possible suspect her.
Five days pass. Conversations about the missing lasagna continued. DiMamma started getting upset about the missing food she made. Unable to bear the guilt a moment longer,
Chelsea ran out of the room and carried back an empty tin pan which she placed on the couch. At least she confessed. Even more interesting, she knew what we were talking about.
I have always wondered how to add the Chelsea lasagna story to the Yalu book series. I will have to give the story more thought Meanwhile, I have two completed e-books ready for your reading pleasure.
One is called Yalu And The Puppy Room where an eight week old Golden Retriever overcomes rejection and finds her very own forever home.
