Thanks for the post. Great ending to a hilarious dog theft.
No, no, no! Bad girl! Bad, bad puppy! Get in your bed, and don’t let me see your face until you have thought about what you have done! Bad girl!
That is SO cute! Our Golden stole a dried pig’s ear at the feed store last week, but he was driven there in our car. That Akira would walk 12 miles is a hoot.
You know what I loved most about the surveillance tape?
No one seems to care (or notice) that the dog is even in the store walking strolling around with a bone in its mouth!
Thanks for that! I needed a laugh today.
Great story, great dog, except for the fact the owners of the dog seem to allow it to run off which there is no excuse for.
Awwwww. Nice story.
Sorry for being skeptical, but a pet who is well fed or starving is not going to walk 12 miles to enter some store and steal food. Something stinks.
A dog that lives next door or very close, yes. But a dog that lives 12 miles away? No.
Well he could be Secretary of the Treasury with those credentials!
Wonder how the pooch discovered the grocery the first time around?
We used to have a dog named Fannie Mae Farkleberry that stole stuff from neighbors and brought it into our garage and dropped it at the back door. She stole dirty laundry from other neighbors’ garages, windshield wipers and lots of good stuff. Some neighbor finally loaded her up and hauled her off one day. It was sad, but she was a misunderstood thief. Her childhood made her go bad I suppose.
The family thinks it is cute that Akira is “a roamer” but this is a serious problem. She could easily be hit by a car or stolen if they allow this bolting behavior to continue. They need to train her or give her to a family who can handle the responsibilities of being a pet guardian.
