Dear Dexter

Thank you for nicking my fleece jumper, I'm really pleased that you didn't chew it, but now that you've slept on it it looks like it needs shaving!

Dear Boss, you should not have left it where I could get it, but, given it was lovely and comfy to snooze on, I will say thank you....

Labs vs. food..........food looses everytime, as I well know.



and here's the guilty party.



......looking like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

With 5 labs about I doubt closing the door would have helped!

Faulty lab there, done properly the baking tin would look like it had been in the dish washer1

Not faulty........but a well placed size 11 boot, tends to make them think of something else...........like bugger it I've been caught.

He loves you so much and that was as close as he could get to you at the time  

Why pick on labs ours would do better job that that on the sas rolls

Our springer would have gulped every morsel   wouldnt be the first time he'd eaten loads.

Our Golden Lab pup is going to be the thief, I think.
She's already had teatowels, saucepan lids and my glasses, to name a few things.
She nicked her first slice of bread the other day, wolfed it down and was sick about 5 mins later.
Lesson learnt? I doubt it

That tray of pasties reminds me of a few dishes here that have been foolishly left on the kitchen unit where (usually) the lurcher strains to get as much as she possibly can when she can't pull the dish or tray off to scoff the lot.
We have had a few half eaten dishes of lasagne etc that have been lurchered like that.
Poor Grace the lab has such short legs that she can't reach far onto the units

Kaz years ago we had 1 dog bigger than others that would pull things onto the floor and share

This was put on facebook by one of my friends - says it all really doesn't it?

Wonder if Debbie's sofa looks like this.

 That's made me smile

Bless them!

We foolishly left our terrier in the boot of the car (several years ago when he was sharper in mind and more agile) with a couple of bags from a trip to the shops, while we stood next to the car chatting to a friend.  He ignored the bag from the butcher, with steak, mince, and sausages, and made a start on the other bag.  

By the time we caught him he had devoured one whole 8" round fruit pie, and was making good inroads into the second.  No ill effects were noted!

More recently (demonstrating the deterioration of his faculties) he ate a frog.  He usually just sniffs them and leaves them, but he saw this one move in the long grass and grabbed it without checking what it was.  Nothing quite as nauseating as watching a terrier with a frog in his mouth, simultaneously trying to swallow it and spit it out.  

Super Spaniel doesn't get the opportunity to steal food or clothes, but will pick up brushes/small garden tools and will "tidy" beer cans if he's in the garage with OH.

Seabird love the sofa we have one like it that has had many cusions on it that end up like that and we get same look
