If you read some of my other posts you know that my dog, Bailey, has a theft problem. He will steal anything he can carry and anything he can carry ends up in the back yard.
Before we moved here we lived in Colorado. Last winter the snow drifts were so high that he was able to come and go over the fence to the neighbor’s house. I didn’t know he was doing it until he got caught going through the neighbor’s dog door and playing in their house.
Well, I have been cleaning out my workshop and other stuff in our house over the last few weeks. Last night I unpacked a few boxes that were still packed from our move and I found a remote control that I didn’t recognize. I turned it over and it has my neighbor’s name on it. We didn’t really know the neighbor and he was never over at our house so I am pretty sure Bailey lifted the remote control from his house and brought it through the dog door, which means that Bailey was probably in his house several times before he got caught. Bad Dog!!
What should I do with the remote?
I should mention that my neighbor wasn’t very nice. If he ever found anyone’s dog in his yard he would immediately call animal control and the dogs would get taken to the pound. I was always picking up dogs and putting them in my house until I found the owners just so he wouldn’t get them first. Since it is a universal remote I think I should donate it the humane society. They do an annual fundraiser garage sale back in Colorado.
Note to Sister: Remember that pair of Ipod headphones you “misplaced” when you were visiting. Well, silly girl, you left them in my back yard in a hole along with my spare set of car keys.
