Return Of The Blueberry Thief

Our resident Blueberry Thief was feeling quite content with himself (not to mention quite full), but his return has been foiled (temporarily).

Blueberry Thief with a wide-eyed innocent look – Who? Me?

As we posted Monday, Hu-Dad’s blueberry loaf cake disappeared except for some crumbs and other remnants. And a certain canine in the house had a case of the blueberry burps. Hu-Dad connected those dots (as well as the fact the dog was caught blue-pawed) and sentenced our criminal to small meals and close monitoring. We can conclude that everything about this care was, well, resolved in the end. If you know what we mean.

Mmmmmm - a replacement blueberry loaf cake.

Hu-Dad has a replacement blueberry loaf cake. And it is sealed in an airtight container with locks. Don’t worry though, our resident safe cracker is already studying the situation.

I need two paws to lift those latches and a nose to hold the container in place.

P.S. #1 – Hu-Dad has also relocated the desserts to a higher location in the kitchen.

P.S. #2 – Sabo The German Shepherd has received critical acclaim for multiple rousing defenses including this past Monday, but Hu-Dad pointed out that he is the Supreme Court of our land. Harumph to that.

    On behalf of my client Landon, we would like to express our pleasure that you have covered the loaf so that no more airborne contamination can occur.

    I would, however like to point out that my client was merely inspection said loaf pan for the safety of Hu-dad
    There was no other intent that could be read into his most innocent of actions.

    And further as an Attorney at Paw I will continue to appear on behalf of my clients whenever there is an injustice done to them.

    Respectfully Submitted

    He certainly doesn’t hide his intent.

    LOVE the way that it was described that the Blueberry thief’s “issues” were all resolved “at the end”-lol. Hu-Dad will just HAVE to put freshly baked goodies higher up IF he wants them to be there when he wants to enjoy them!!! The Thundering Herd’s posts give me a smile each and every morning!!!!
