White Dog sat on the arm of my chair as we visited with Richard who stopped by after walking around the neighborhood to do errands. He is making a conscious effort to walk more and use the car less; great for the environment and healthy for him!

As we chatted, he asked "where's Quinn?" The Other White Dog did not answer our calls or White Dog's "woof" (which set my spidey senses tingling). We looked in his usual hangouts (the closet, the bathroom, the deck) and did not see him so shrugged and decided that he was in the yard on some adventure.

The three of us had just resettled ourselves when I heard a strange crinkling sound. "What is that noise?" I asked looking around and seeing no immediate source. Both Richard and White Dog shrugged with "what sound?" looks.

Then from the corner of my eye, sliding along the edges of the room, I saw the package of hamburger buns float by...in the teeth of a ghostly white apparition. THE White Dog immediately went into tattletale alarm, and Quinn, busted, did the only thing an Eskie in that position could do...dropped the buns (keeping a paw on them), sat in perfect form, and smiled his most charming Eskie smile.

hey Quinn,

Congrats! I am so proud that you have reached the point where you are comfy enough in your new home that you can sneak around and eat human food! And when caught, you did exactly the right dog thing to do: act innocent and as if nothing out of the ordinary is going on! Bravo! Siku Marie taught you well! ;->


p.s. my good buddies The Desert Pups are considering adopting an Eskie found in the desert, and the Eskie looks just like you two! I have a link to their blog if you want to see her picture. You Eskies sure are a popular bunch!

Mom always knows when something is not quite right. So, did Quinn at least get a bun bite or two?

Oh I am sure Quinn was just going to put them away for you....that's what a good helper does, you know....

Oh Quinn when I get busted doing something like that I don't even try to act innocent. I just try to wolf down as many buns as I can before Momma can grab it away from me.

Ha ha Thanks for the laugh today. We can just envision you doing this!

Oh my gosh that is so funny! I can just picture it! Any time a crinkly noise happens in our house we know exactly who to look for (never the older cats, always a youngin) and we are almost always lucky enough that it is cat treats (almost always). That is just so funny to picture!
