Exploding Meat!

Well one of Scout's greatest fantasies came true tonight. My mom was cooking ground beef on the stove when I heard a loud pop and an almost simultaneous startled cry from my mom. After a shouted "Are you okay?"--"I'm fine." I went to investigate. Apparently there had been some sort of air bubble in the beef that was frozen and in the hot grease blew apart. The best part? Ground beef all over the floor. We called Scout in and she got this look on her face that said, "I've been waiting my whole life for this!" She quickly got to work on clean-up duty. What a helpful dog! She cleaned the entire floor. Okay, it wasn't really that much, but it was a beautiful moment for a small dog.
