Broiling Steaks is Scary

Being scared can surely sneak up on you when you least expect it.  I guess that is how it happens, otherwise, would you be scared if you knew it was coming? 

It happened last night when Mommy was making dinner.  She wanted to surprise Daddy with some delicious bacon wrapped steaks from Omaha and instead of pulling out the grill from the garage, Mommy made the steaks in the broiler.  I never saw the broiler drawer before, and it squeaked a little every time she opened the door.  So, Mommy was doing her normal dinner preparations to have dinner on the table by the time Daddy got home from work (Mommy is good at that), and everything was just fine and dandy.  Then, the steaks must have had a lot of juice because they started to smoke a little, then a little more and when I ran into the room and smelled smoke, I got scared…. I mean really scared!  Mommy saw me run out of the room and she came after me to see what happened.  I was cowering on top of the bed, shaking, and she comforted me, then called for Daddy to sit with me while she finished cooking dinner.  I could not stop shaking.  That smoke really scared me, and it was not even a lot of smoke either, but I could tell something was wrong in “my world”.  Mommy even tried to coax me out of the bedroom to sit on the landing by the opened back door, and she had to pull me down the hallway to the back door.  I laid on the landing while they ate dinner, but would not move into the kitchen.  The air cleared and I finally came up from the landing into the kitchen.  Phew, I am so glad that was over.  Daddy & Mommy both comforted me so I felt better.  It amazes me the things that bother us, like when something in our world changes and we notice it, or when a neighbor hangs towls on a clothes line and I bark at them, or when I see my reflection in the oven door and I growl, those are things that bother me, but that small amount of smoke last night scared me.  What would I do if there was a real fire emergency?  I would hope that I would alert Daddy & Mommy if that ever happens.

What has scared you?

  1. That sure was a scary experience, Nikita! Thank you for sharing it with us! When something bothers you, it is always good to tell someone about it. That way, they can help you get through those kind of experiences if they should happen again and maybe in the end, you won’t be scared anymore! I probably would have been scared too! Doggies always seem to know that something is different in their world! Just the other day, we had more rain and LIGHTNING AND THUNDER!!! I knew that the storm was coming before any of my Family knew! I could feel it coming, and I do not like when it gets DARK in the house DURING THE DAY!! That is probably why my Mommy puts the lights on in the house; she does not want me to be afraid! But anyhow, I followed Mommy wherever she went in the house! When Daddy came home from work, I followed him around the house! He and I sat on the couch for the longest time!! I was shaking and hid my head under the pillow! Those Angels were sure having a BIG bowling match in Heaven!! (Everytime that it THUNDERS, my Mommy tells me that it is only the Angels in Heaven having a bowling match, so, there is no reason to be afraid!) What I do not understand is, how can they bowl in the DARK? They must have the eyes of a cat! Hey, maybe that is why a lot of Doggies are afraid of THUNDER; it’s because the Angels are cats! But, aren’t the cats suppose to be afraid of us dogs? This is definitely confusing! And, I am still afraid of LIGHTNING AND THUNDER!!! So, have I made you laugh and feel better and not so scared anymore? I hope so!! Now, what can we do about those DARN firecracker noises?
    More importantly, Nikita, did you get to sample a piece of the steaks or bacon? I bet that they were DELICIOUS!!
    Hope that you have another GREAT weekend!!
    LUV YA, Nikita!!

    • HI HARMONY! NO, I DID NOT GET ANY STEAK OR BACON BECAUSE MY DADDY AND MOMMY DO NOT FEED ME PEOPLE FOOD. THE ONLY TIME I HAD ANY PEOPLE FOOD WAS WHEN I SNUCK THAT RAW HAMBURGER OFF THE TRAY ON THE COUNTER, OTHER THAN THAT, I ONLY EAT MY SCIENCE DIET DOG FOOD. I HOPE I DON’T GET SCARED AGAIN, BUT I AM SURE THAT SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN AGAIN TO SCARE ME, BUT I AM GLAD THAT I HAVE MY MOMMY & DADDY TO COMFORT ME. I AM NOT AFRAID OF THUNDER & LIGHTNING, ALTHOUGH THE FIRST TIME I HEARD IT, I DID GET SCARED BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW WHAT THAT WAS. I AM ONE LUCKY DOG TO KNOW THAT I DON’T GET SCARED WITH STORMS AND I KNOW THAT A LOT OF DOGGIES DO.
