I had a pot cooling on the back burner, and I caught her standing at the stove, taking the lid off with her teeth, says Young, a Hardwick Village, Mass., resident and an American Kennel Club judge. Another time, Martha popped open the microwave and gobbled five pounds of spicy Italian sausage thawing inside.
