Simple Humans Have Ruined My Snacking

Dogs have raided trash cans since dogs were invented.  It is a right for a dog to be able to snack out of a trash container at will.  Humans were invented to provide their dogs with tasty scraps they don't eat.  I'm pretty sure nobody can refute that!

I'm pretty sure cave people didn't have garbage cans!

It was in 1884 that some french guy by the name of Poubelle ordered citizens to use metal containers to dispose of household waste.  

I hate that man!

My life has been ruined by my simple human, who went out and bought a simplehuman Deluxe Butterfly Step Can (Google Affiliate Ad) years ago.

Unlike some of those other trash cans that you can just slide your snooter and lift the lid up for your snacking needs, this thing closes up tighter than a bank safe!  There's no way to get your snooter under the lid!

As far as I can tell, the only way to get it open is to step on the stupid thing near the bottom, but you have to maintain pressure on that thing or the "butterfly wings" will trap your head in the middle and bad, baaaad things would happen.

I tried planting the Mutatoe with his ample ass on the pedal thing to hold it down while I snacked, but he got so excited about the smells coming out of there, he jumped off the pedal and I barely escaped with my life.  So not worth the risk.

 So far the only thing I've come up with to disable this menace to dog society is to block the foot pedal.

It hasn't worked yet, but I'm holding out hope.

I hate that Ft. Knox of trash cans! Actually "hate" is a strong word, but I'd offer it no hugs! I did finally learn how to step on the lever to make it open, but that's it. I can't do that AND stick my head in to investigate at the same time. I'll have to get Zim to help.
I like your idea about blocking it.
PS: It's YOUR human woman's fault that we have one. Woo.

At least you have something to work with. Our trash is in a drawer.

It sounds like you have an ingenious plan worked out. Best of luck!

Check it out -- this is the perfect trash can! My friend Jen has one and her dogs tell me it's AWESOME, and even better, Jen hasn't realized her dogs know how to work it. BWAHAHAHA. I'm trying to talk Marianne into ordering one for us. Love, Jeb
