are adorable, but we aren't about to forget about man's (and woman's!) best friend. Is it a coincidence that many of our most favorite Kitchen Tours have featured a tail-wagging pup or two? We think not. Pour yourself another cup of coffee in this post-holiday work week and take a peek at this puppy parade. Dogs, even more than cats, are constant and dependable kitchen companions. They're always ready to for a belly rub while we wait for the oven to heat or hovering nearby in case something should happen to fall to the floor. (Who needs a vacuum, right?!) Does your dog keep you company when you're cooking?
