I've been known to reach halfway down my dogs' throats to remove stolen food, just so stealing doesn't become a self-rewarding behaviour. OTOH, when I caught Gunnar sneaking down the hallway trying as hard as he could to look invisible with half a pepperoni pizza hanging out of his mouth, all I could do was open the door & send him outside so he wouldn't see me laughing at him.
...and just last night I made myself some absolutely HORRID instant mashed potatoes & while eating them, muttered something to the effect of, "I should just feed the rest of this to the dog." Well, I put the box away, and about half an hour later Kaija waltzed into the bedroom carrying that box of potato flakes! Dang, you do have to be careful what you say out loud when you've got a GSD....
