I "busted" Dusty this morning....

I put my dog, Dusty, in our bathroom with a baby gate up at night...for some reason if I leave her loose at night she uses the rug as her bathroom, but that's the only time. So every night I say "Dusty, time for bed" and she goes in, she actually listens better than my 2 legged kids, LOL! Anyway, she usually always has some type of rawhide chew or something and I never allow her to bring it with her at bedtime...I don't wanting her working up a thirst in the night and not have a drink available.

Well, this morning I take down the gate (she usually happily walks out in a groggy daze) and she sits up, gives me a guilty look and lays back down. Hmmmph? I give her some pets and kind of laugh thinking she's very tired. So I go in my bedroom to get dressed to bring dd to school (the bathroom's right across from my room) and I see Dusty walk to the bathroom door way, turn back around into the bathroom and sneak out with her chewie!!! LOL!!! She must have sat up and layed back down to hide it from me!!! So, I walked over to her (chewie still in her mouth) laughing and saying "You took your cookie to bed", I wish I had my video camera...her tail started going 100 mph and the look on her face was priceless! What a sneak! LOL!

Such a cute story! Now you'll have to watch sneaky Dusty at bedtime!

It seems my girls rarely feel guilty for anything. I usually get the look that says, "What? What? Am I doing something wrong?" :-)

They never cease to amaze me...

Dusty is a real smart one...I'm curious now to see if Dusty "stashes" another cookie for tonight...
