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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Crime and punishment

While we were away, Stumpy succumbed to peer pressure and fell in with a bunch of thugs.

The line-up

The evidence

Stumpy has been fingered as the ring leader, and is now on lock-down. None of the other dogs are talking, though. And as noted in the video, the most damning piece of evidence has been lost.

Stumpy's under house arrest, wearing a collar and leash, until boot camp begins. Her treats are also being withheld until further notice.

She ain't happy


Kari in Alaska said...

Hmm I think you're being framed!


Sandra said...

Innocent until proven guilty.

Jan said...

You've got nothing. A good defense attorney could get this thrown out in 5 minutes.

debs daze said...

I think Stumpy is an innocent bystander. Those film clips prove NOTHING! I demand an immediate acquittal!

Anonymous said...

Stumpy, they don't have anything on you! Maybe you were just being a concerned citizen helping that lady get the stuff out of her trunk. Yeah, that's it!

Elyse and Riley

Barbara said...

It's all circumstantial. You got nuttin'.


Carey Brown Strombotne said...

ps- i love the second clip, where you are doing a great job as the look-out!

Pee Ess, sorry we had to delete our silly error.

Kimbopolo said...

LOL! Stumpy needs to work on her poker face.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Kari, Stumpy has used that excuse a few times too many!

Sandra, The proof is in the pudding, or the video in this case.

Jan, I'm going to get one of her thug friends to give her up!

Deborah, innocent by-stander my @$$!

Elyse and Riley, ummmm... that won't work. did you see that pile of stuff on my deck I posted a couple of days ago? Stumpy is not into helping unless there is food involved.

Barbara, suspects have been found guitly on less.

Carey! At last! someone who recognizes her guilt!

OP Pack, did you get that prescrition for new glasses filled, yet?

Kim, Stumpy needs to work on a few things and it will all start next week in boot camp.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Stumpy you have been framed. It must be some kind of trick photography. Humans seem to do that a lot...
We can come up with Bail if you need it...

ForPetsSake said...

Love the suspenseful music! I can't imagine Stumpy doing a single wrong thing. Gotta be innocent!

Wyatt said...

Oh dear, you have turned to a life of crime :(
You are hanging with the wrong crowd, Missy!!
It's not too late to turn your life around!!

BOL! Oh Stumpy you should have eaten the hidden camera! No worries, I can tell you are just beginning your career as a grifter ;) A few weeks in boot camp with more experienced dogs will no doubt hone your talents. I think we should consider teamin up. I'll bankroll the capers and you take all the risks. We'll share in the loot 50/50 Whatdayasay? ;)

Waggin at ya sneaky sister,

Pat Wahler said...

Just remember, Stumpy, you have the right to remain silent...


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Heelers, There are other witnesses...

Terrorzinhos, Stumpy is a lot of things. Innocent has NEVER been one of them!

Khyra, now there's a possability I hadn't considered. And that Callie IS a bit of a trouble maker...

ForPetsSake, Stumpy is headed for her 3rd strike. She's definitely not new to a life of crime.

Wyatt, Maybe you and Stanzie can convince her.

Roo! ROFLMAO! Oh I hadn't thought of the influences she might fall under at boot camp. this might not be a good thing!

Pat, Indy and Bogie, She's not giving up a thing.

Poor Stumpy! Don't worry. We will break you out and take you to the Valentine's Weekend Party!

Huh? I did not see anything bad!
Hmm.... Let me watch it again and I will tell you, ok?
I hope you will be free again soon!
Kisses and hugs

Unknown said...

As the saying goes, takes one to know one. I think I may be called as a character witness for the prosecution... but woo know that hot dog that guy was eating could deter my court appearance.
just sayin

bbes tribe said...

FREE STumpy!! We agree - innocent until proven guilty... Actually Stumpy was just an innocent or maybe a scapegoat for the others..
Don't let him get to you Stumpy!

atumpy! choose your gang membahs wisely.. always have a suckah in the group. just sayin.


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Sallie, I know! Stumpy's so misunderstood! She's kind of like the female version of James Dean, except she's a dog.

Wizz, Oops is right! BUSTED! In capital letters!

Heelers, I hope you get to the lake, soon!

Lorenza, You want some glasses?

Nordude, I am only surprised you weren't in the video, too! You want hot dogs? Come to boot camp tomorrow!

bbes tribe,hmmm...I think you've been bribed to say that!

Tula, Stumpy wants you to be her Enforcer!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Your Honor! NEVER has an innocent doggie been so badly and baldy maligned, accused BY THE VERY PARTY WHO TOOK HER INTO TEMPTATION AND INTRODUCED HER TO THE SO-CALLED BAD INFLUENCES! It is an outrage to justice and a fraud on this court to maintain Stumpy was responsible for her human's bad judgement in exposing her [Stumpy] to questionable companions. In addition to which, there is NO evidence of Stumpy doing anything but standing and trotting around, with an empty mouth, in the video submitted as evidence. There is a veiled reference to hypothetical critical evidence which is suspiciously "missing" and which the prosecution expects the court to accept on faith! There is not even a shadow of a convincing case against Stumpy, Your Honor, much less any clear and convincing evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.

And the prosecution would do well to remember the only thing doggies learn in boot camp is how to be better criminals.

We rest our case and demand an immediate dismissal of all charges, compensation and an apology for the defendant, and costs and attorneys fees [payable in Milkbones].
