Every once in a while, I get a story that I just *have* to pass along. This is one of those times. It is way too funny for sure. Many of you know that my cousin Sherlock Bones lives in Chicago, Illinois. Sherlock Bones is 5 – like me – and he’s a Basset Hound. Awesome cousin for sure!
Mom is sitting on the couch last night watching television and she gets a text from her sister, my Aunt Tina. Mom reads it and then starts laughing. So of course you know all of us anipals have to go up to mom and ask her what’s so funny.
Aunt Tina bought a pizza for the family last night, put it way back on the kitchen counter and went for a quick run through the neighborhood. My cousin Maverick had went to the bathroom to wash up and was going to eat when he was finished. In the meantime, guess who smelled the pizza? If you said Sherlock Bones, we have a winner!
Somehow Sherlock learned how to reach further back on the kitchen counter and helped himself to some dinner.
In just a short time span, Sherlock Bones ate 8 boneless wings and three slices of pizza.
He then proceeded to stash three more slices of pizza in the sofa. You know so he could have a midnight snack. The dog has skills.
I’m thinking that one day when I grow up I can try to be like him… looks down at my miniature pot-belly and short legs, okay maybe not.
After his dinner, he stretched out on the sofa belly up full from his adventure.
Texts went back/forth between mom and Aunt Tina – all full of sarcasm and fun. Then Aunt Tina sent the final picture of Sherlock Holmes laying on the sofa all sad. Why was he sad? Because he spent a solid ten minutes looking for his ‘stashed’ pizza in the sofa and couldn’t find them. He could smell them but they were gone. Aunt Tina had found them and removed them from the sofa.
I guess Sherlock Bones was so heartbroken.

My rescue dog stashed food in the couch when we first got him. Couldn’t blame him. He was really starved. But he’s never stolen food from anywhere but the floor.

I tell you my friend, this pooch has skills. I mean how he got the pizza off of the counter is amazing. Mom says I’m no angel though. I once climbed up in a chair in the kitchen and got dad’s sandwich. Can’t blame Sherlock at all. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

Sherlock Bones seems to be very talented dog.

He really is dear friend! Aunt Tina says he has a nose for all that is food! Giggles. XOXO – Bacon

Well, he is a basset, that should have been warning enough.

Uh-oh. I guess his nose got the better of him. Well that and the stomach pains from being hungry. Too funny.

Well you know he’s probably like me… *always* hungry. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

It doesn’t take a Sherlock to know what happened to the pizza.

oh how bad that he couldn’t find the trashures he hid on the sofa…. poor Sherlock… but I bow my head that was the fine art of counter surfing… BRAVO! I’ve got only a pack with coffe filters yesterday… what a pitiful prey …

Only filters bro? Gosh darn it. I wish Aunt Tina had a camera in her kitchen. It would have been hilarious to see Sherlock getting that pizza and chicken. XOXO – Bacon

Does the 5 second rule apply to food that has been stuffed inside a couch by the dog?

I know!! I’m still in awe of Sherlock’s talents. That dog has skills that I aspire to for sure! XOXO – Bacon
