Banjo is on a diet. When we leave the house, he forages for additional food to supplement his (perfectly reasonable) daily allotment. On Monday, he took my springform pan out of the sink and ravaged it. It had a minute coating of butter left over from the shortbread I made in it on Sunday.
Some theories: a) Banjo was attempting to extract butter from metal. b) Banjo flew into a rage when he discovered that the pan no longer contained shortbread and took it out on the pan. c) Banjo enjoyed the butter like a wild animal a la Fantastic Mr. Fox. What must Petra think as she watches from the safety of her crate?
