We may need an intervention here.
Turns out after a half hour I didn't even notice it. Maybe it wasn't that much. Maybe my sense of smell got burned out. All I know is the pork roast was yummy.

Dang I can't believe he could drag that thing - he only weighs 12 lbs !!
That could be a commercial.

I use onion and garlic is most long cooking dishes. Once I forgot and was surprised by a new flavor. I think it was a pot of split peas. It was actually very good, just different.

That's weird enough that I gotta wonder if Beagle is part cat.

Awww .. cute !!

He normally doesn't take things.

A few years ago we had a hard time with him. He knew how to open 1 cupboard in the kitchen - only 1 even though they were all the same. In that cupboard I had a box that I kept potatoes in.

He would open that cupboard and take a potato.

One day I went to get a couple potatoes out to bake and there was only 1. I knew there were 2 in there the night before because I checked while I was planning dinner.

DH swore up and down he wasn't taking the potatoes and at that time there was only one other hungry face in our place. That's when I found out what he was doing.

So I kept an eye out and finally caught him stealing a potato. He waited until he thought nobody was looking. Walked into the kitchen .. used his tiny little paw to open the cupboard door. Reached into the box with his snoot and out he came with a potato. Then he pushed the cupboard door shut. Sat down right there and ate that potato !!

I stepped into his line of sight and asked him what he was doing. His eyes bugged out like a cartoon character ... he knew the gig was up LOL

So the potatoes got moved to another cupboard and we never lost another one.

Since then - as far as I know - he hasn't taken anything else.
