I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Or brat?

Back Story:

The other night, I was busy at the back of the house. Stumpy, went up and down the hall, presumably to check on my welfare, about five or six times. Later, I discovered she was not in the least bit concerned about my welfare.

But Stumpy...

There was no reason perfekhtly good stuff should be there unattended -

Was your human trying to lure in khoyotes OR attempting to khreate a blog post?

I believe we ALL know the answer to that one!

Stumpy, you are one smart & sneaky pup. We had a Siberian Husky that was smart like that. Everytime he wanted to leave the yard he would check all the windows at the back of the house as he went toward the back fence. Then with one last look he would climb over & go visitine other kids & friends. We thought he wasn't very smart but found out he was VERY smart!!!!
Tailwags, way to go Stumpy!

I love a bad devious girl. I say your actions were mutually beneficial. You check on mom to see if she's okay AND to see where she is... what's the big deal! I can tell your starving from that hot burning dirt filled air. You gotta take when there's taking. All's fair game.
PS- furry impressed

Circumstantial evidence. This will never hold up in court.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Khyra, the first time Stumpy stole treats off my deskh was no set up! Okk, when I filmed the re-enakhtment we khould khall that entrapment...

OP Pack, see my reply to Khyra and you've been disqualified by the prosecution.

Clampets, She's sneaky, devious and cute to boot! That combination spells trouble!

Norwood, mutually beneficial??? I'm only grateful that the whole box of treats was not on the desk! Stumpy loves you, too!

Riley, maybe you and Stumpy can share a defense attourney. I hear you're in trouble, too!

Heelers, All heelers are too smart for their own good!

Jan, Says you. I have it on film!

Oh, Stumpy. You were most obviously FRAMED! And by your mom, no less! Tsk, tsk! What is this world coming to?? Really, your mom should be the one being prosecuted here, not you. But she seems like a pretty good mom so I recommend you gives her a pardon. But make sure she gives you bail (in the form of more treats) before you release her.

Wiggles & Wags,

Stumpy, I agree - you were set up! Talk about 'entrapment! - you were entrapped!
What a funny video, too. It is hard not to talk straight to ya, Stumpy!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Clearest case of entrapment we've ever seen, and Abby is a legal beagle [mix]. In fact, Abby is willing to represent you in a case of breach of contract or bait & switch or something. Clearly your mom left foodables within "easy" reach [you reached them, didn't you?], which is an implied offer to snack. You accepted the offer by snacking, and now she's trying to impose bogus penalites in violation of an executed contract. Seems to us your mom should be tried by a jury of your peers. There must be a violation of your Constitutional rights in there, too - unlawful surveillance or something. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I ask you, just because my client COINCIDENTLY walked up and down the hall a couple of times in the course of executing this perfectly legal contract....

Great video. Our Dare can lick a plate clean on the side in our kitchen :-)


Dexter said...

That was a shocking movie indeed. I noticed the table is spontaneously producing foodables even after they appear to be gone. What mystical place do you live?


Terrorzinhos said...

We all think she's innocent!
we may be defense witnesses, if necessary!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Sandra, I should have known you would take Stumpy's side!

Mayzie! I'm the one that is being persecuted here..OH! Wait! You said prosecuted!

Brenda, All's fair in love and war. I was "entrapped" almost 4 years ago, when I first saw that face!

Jed and Abby, thanks for stopping by Stumpy's blog! Clearly, you have some talent in the legal department! I have beeen officially baffled with BS!

Tula, Stumpy is terrified of files! And she looks good in anything! Just ask her!

Wizz, Sounds like Dare and Stumpy area couple of Artful dodgers! maybe we should set them up in business somewhere!

Mango, I suppose you're going to convince Stumpy to take a conspiracy plea or something!

Jack, Kaiser and Farrusquinho, Stumpy's going to need all the help she can get! Thanks!

This comes under the heading:

If you want it, yeah, come and get it, but you better hurry cuz its goin' fast!

Major entrapment, Stumpy, my Mom would never do that to me.


debs daze said...

My neice Stumpy would do this kind of thing only for the BEST reasons (blog fodder? Cyn's amusement?)... Surely!!!

I believe there are extenuating circumstances not displayed or explained in the reinactment.
The fact that there were unattended treats laid out all over the desk was easily mistaken as a training exercise.
I want to commend you (mom Cyndi) on your surreptitcious videoing skills and editing.
Oh the things that happen when I am away from a computer for a few days. Stumpy - thanks for the smiles.
