We have powers beyond your human understanding

There was one lonely Better Cheddar left in the fridge, so I heated it up to eat while I made a salad. Sassafras loped in to check out the interesting smell. Alas, she can't be given goodies like this any more. I set the half-eaten sausage in its bun on the counter, very carefully, and began to assemble my salad.

I swear, I didn't knock anything or disturb anything, but the blamed thing rolled off the counter and hit the floor. I picked it up before Sassy could eat it, but she'd already licked one end, which meant that I couldn't finish it, either. Waste of a nice treat in both our eyes.

Thinking it over, I find it disturbing to contemplate a dog with telekinetic powers. What else can she do that she's not telling us?
