This morning I made coffee. Filled the reservoir up, measured the grinds, turned it on. Then I went to answer some emails and heard it happily brewing. We have the kind of coffee maker that brews directly into one or two travel mugs, and apparently after I used my mug to pour the water in I placed it on the counter. And so the coffee brewed onto the counter instead of the mug. The hand towel sitting nearby took the brunt of it and I came back before Riley lapped up the rest. (Caffeine is not good for dogs.) Forgive me if I didn't include a picture!
