Our New Weight-Loss Plan: The Moose Diet

No, this isn't Sarah Palin's "Mama Grizzly Diet" of real Alaskan moose.

We just buy whatever sweet and/or fattening foods we desire, put them someplace high but not quite high enough, and then let our dog Moose knock them to the floor and devour them. So far the Moose Diet has spared us the calories of
  • one whole raspberry kringle
  • one whole Dutch apple pie
  • two partial loaves of bread
  • one asiago cheese bread demi loaf from Panera
I also caught him in the act with a jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread (would you like some jelly with that, Moose?), but he only slobbered on those.

UPDATE 11/23/2012 -- Add another apple pie to the list above, this time homemade. Yes, at this point we are willing to acknowledge that we are idiots being outwitted regularly by a young, goofy dog.
