What do people do without pot-licking dogs? They must spend a fortune on sponges and chemicals and scrubbers. We have a border collie with teeth like a beaver that goes at every difficult pot and pan like its life depends on it. Grease, char, veggie, meat, it doesn’t matter the contents. I don’t even bother asking any of the other dogs now, her determination and thoroughness are so above the rest. And I’ve gotten to the point where I save containers for her, rather than wash them in her absence. Yeah, she’s got me trained. But under my sink, I’ve got the cleanest pipes in the county.
