Update: Race and the Chocolate Cake...

Yesterday I wrote about Race eating nearly half a chocolate cake.  Several readers wrote with comments and questions:
  1. How is Race doing?  He's doing fine.  You'd never know that anything had happened.  He even likes his cottage cheese and rice diet.  But he wants more chocolate cake...

  2. How was the chocolate cake?  The chocolate cake, what little remains, is delicious.  The recipe came from the Walmart web site, which Debbie says is full of very good, easy-to-cook recipes.

  3. My dog ate (almost anything you can imagine)!  Several readers wrote with their own stories of strange things their dog ate.  Jo B., our now-retired former veterinarian, had a St. Bernard that absolutely loved to eat towels or other rags (also gloves).  Her dog often required surgery after such an event.  Franz M., a friend who lives in Munich, wrote to tell us about Paco, a much-loved and much-missed dog that he and his wife Ellen used to have.  Once Ellen made lasagna, and left it on the window sill to cool down.  Half an hour later, nearly the whole lasagna was gone – Paco had eaten it.  Though he felt bad, and belched all day long, he was ok in the end.
Thanks, all who wrote.

We would never dare leave a nice lasagna unguarded in our kitchen, especially if it had meat sauce or sausage in it.  With four dogs and five cats roaming the house, it would be sure to disappear quickly!
