A blueberry bandit struck Chez Herd yesterday morning. Unfortunately for the culprit, crumbs in the whiskers and blueberry breath gave him away.
During Landon’s time in rescue prior to arriving at Chez Herd, he spent some time in prison. Really, a prison. One of those programs where the inmates work with dogs for a period of time teaching them skills. As a result of that training time, Landon has a very pretty sit and down. He resorts to both when he wants something regardless of whether the human has asked for such behavior.
Hu-Dad claims Landon learned other skills from his inmate. He has the innate ability to pick any lock. He can open his crate door and wander around the house. And he can open the door from the yard into the house, quietly letting himself into the house at will.
Sunday morning, Landon quietly opened the door and waltzed into the kitchen on his way to Hu-Dad’s study where he likes to surprise the Hu-Dad with his presence. Unfortunately, he could not resist a blueberry loaf cake sitting on the counter. Hu-Dad was really looking forward to eating that cake, but only a very small amount remained when Hu-Dad came around the corner to discover Landon in the floor, cake in mouth, and crumbs and blueberries everywhere.
Bet you can smell the blueberries on his breath from there. Fortunately, blueberries are good for dogs, though Landon was on a sugar high for much of the day. Before sentencing, we should ask the convict if he has any last words.

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
