Mom is a pretty healthy eater, but on occasion, she likes to polish off a bag of chips, or a bag of candy. Lately she has been talking about a DQ Blizzard, specifically one called Smores. Bailie has been staying home with no kennel for five to six weeks now with no real problems. Saturday night Mom gave in to temptation and left home for 20 minutes to go to DQ to get this Blizzard. When she came home, the first thing she saw was this crime scene! The bananas in the kitchen had been assaulted!
Uh oh, someone knocked the bananas and the banana tree on the floor…but wait, weren’t there seven bananas when she left home just twenty minutes ago? Next stop, the living room, where the perp was found with the evidence – lots of peels and to bananas missing. The perp was highly uncooperative and claimed to have no knowledge as to how those peels got there or where the bananas were. She also stated that perhaps an ape or monkey from the Minnesota Zoo had broken loose and done this. (Said zoo is only a few miles from our home.)
As the chief of security at our house, I was called in to work the crime scene for this Banana Caper. It was apparent to me immediately with my hound nose, that Bailie was our perp! I could smell the banana on her breath from a mile away, and look how she is avoiding me!
I filled out the form and got her prints. What a shame an otherwise nice pup is involved in such a caper! Lucky for her, she is still a puppy, and her records will all be expunged when she turns one on June 17th. Hopefully she can pull herself together and be a respectable dog at that point! At least she is starting to look a bit remorseful.
The entire process was so intense and took so long, I accidentally fell asleep waiting for the transport to haul Bailie’s furry behind off to jail. Mom says I have watched to much Barney Fife and need to behave like a real cop.
I guess now I will have to go and visit her in the slammer. It looks like she will be living on water and dog chow, no treats. I sure hope she gets out before her birthday! On the positive side, I now know that I will make her a banana flavored dessert of some sort for her first birthday. She obviously loves bananas! Maybe she has been reading too many of Sugar’s blog posts about bananas? That could have put her over the edge. If that is the case, she may run off and hide at a Cracker Barrel when she gets out of jail.
