This is a really fun story. My own dog got into a cake that I was making for hire for a neighbor's birthday. And I couldn't get made because I was the one who left the cake in plain sight.

If a Bichon ate 20 pies, it would explode. Sounds like a publicity joke.

How can a small dog eat 20 pies which the owner is distracted for what apparently should have been a short period of time? Seems unlikely to me. But this story does sound like a story line for a dog comedy flick.

This could be a fill-in-the-blank story out of Mad Magazine. BICHON eats twenty PIES because PIGEON flies into CHIMNEY. :D

I can just imagine the ruckus that followed up after finding the dog in the pies. I am sure next year they will be a bit more cautious on guarding the pies. I wonder if the new contest will have more dogs competing.

Twenty pies sounds like a lot for a single dog.

I never saw this one until I saw your post. It's so funny what animals will do to get at something they want. I saw a news clip last night where a dog ran into a convenience store. He ran right to the pet food section, grabbed a rawhide bone and ran back out, before the store owner could grab him. I wonder what they would have charge him with, had they caught him? LOL

ROFLOL! Now that must have been cute! A pet bone bandit! So how did he know so quick where to go I wonder? I can't fault the dog for the pies as he may have been hungry, or a smell might have been tasty to him. Can't fault the bone bandit either. Okay, I know I am a push over for animals! lol!

I saw the actual footage on the news last night. It was really funny. They said the owner was shouting"drop that bone". :-) It looked as though the dog knew exactly where to go. Smart pup!

Darn healthy-eating initiatives, ruining all our gluttony. If people want to stress their bodies by eating so much food, let them. Just make them pay higher healthcare costs.

I once had a dog open my cooler and start eating a pie slated for a bake sale. Wouldn't you know she picked the one where the crust looked the best!

Wonder if he had a stomach ache. I bet he looked like he swallowed a bowling ball. Dogs will eat until there is no food left.

I am glad the dog is okay. It doesn't take long for some pets to get into things and food is a pretty motivating factor,

Food eating contests are a gross waste of time anyways. Send some pies to Hawaii next time to feed people who apparenlty are stealing dogs from golf courses and eating them according to the next article.

20 pies - wow - I have heard that dogs tend to eat without stopping when they get full. I'm glad he didn't suffer any ill effects.

Dogs shouldn't be tested on how many pies they can eat, their talent is how many pies can sampled/stepped in/etc. (or so my 2 dogs tell me)!

I'm laughing while I'm writing this. Many yrs ago on Thanksgiving my aunt had taken the turkey out of the oven and put it on top of the stove. She left the kitchen for a few minutes when she returned the turkey was gone. We found it in the bedroom, her 2 dogs had taken it in there and starting feasting. We saved alot of it and brought it back and served it up. I kept that secret until the day she died, and every yr I have that great memory of her.

what he thought when he discovered the pies had been eaten.

I bet Dave Williams was very relieved when he found out the pies could be replaced. Maybe they should give Charlie another chance to win this year when his belly isn't already full of 20 pies.

Wow. That's a lot of pie for one little dog. I remember last Thanksgiving when my cat devoured half of a pumpkin pie that we had sitting on the counter. Animals and their silly ways....
