Haha great story thanks for sharing. It's so hard to get mad at them.
"Who killed the cheesecake"........It was not his style to do a lot of explaining to humans, even a human he loved. If she had not worked out the nature of things by now what point was there in making an issue of it?
Apparently the cheesecake was left unguarded and accessible to a short legged theif! You wouldn't expect a world class counter surfer to pass up a cheesecake, now would you?
Thanks for sharing this delightful story, well written and very entertaining!
Please share more Opus adventures!
I wonder the same thing in our house. Our other dog knows better than to get into the garbage and things like that but sometimes I can't help but think he helps out.Aw, that a fine memory to have gsally. And thank you everyone, what surprised me the most was how my short legged, quite blind senior managed the generat the power needed to hoike himself high enough for acurate counter-surf. Guess fool me. NEVER underestimate the determination of a basset when it comes to food, no matter what the age. On less the cat was in on it...hmmm.
And now you are doomed to have a peanut butter cookie snatcher as long as you have your short legged long earred friend!............better stock up next time you go to the grocery store!We gave Layla one (ONE!) peanut butter cookie last night
We gave Layla one (ONE!) peanut butter cookie last night, and she decided to help herself to another when we weren't watching. Now she knows what is stored on top of the butcher block in the kitchen and inspects it periodically to see if she can reach it...
We call Doppler a nose shark because when we've got food on the TV trays or the dining room table, all we can see over the edge of the table is his nose checking to see what food we've got. It's pretty funny!Hahah, my husband calls that 'sharking' because it reminds him of what a shark does when it's skimming by searching for food.
This is true too with my dogs! They know that I'm the softie when it comes to getting snacks. They'll beg from my husband but know I'm always good for treats.They also learn very quickly who is an easy target! My son-in-law never did learn to get all the sandwich making ingredients out of the fridge when constructing a sandwich. Lucy knew he was always good for one half-made sandwich when he was reaching back in the fridge for the mustard!
