To Catch A Thief

The Creekhiker Edition:

I came home from the store with a fresh bag of carrots and tossed an old, not so fresh bag of carrots on the floor along with a bag of onions past their prime. It was blazing hot and there was no sense in making the trek to the greens bin in the midday sun.

The next time I came into the living room, both were in Macy's bed. I placed both on top of the recycling bin in the kitchen and didn't think any more about it. Later, working on the computer, I heard crunching noises. I ran to the living room and found her enjoying the carrots! Raw! Remember how Mabel Lou wouldn't even eat carrots cooked in chicken broth??? Well, now I know I'll never run out of dog treats!

The things that Macy will eat astounds me! Basically, if I eat it, she wants it! She is insane about coffee and stalks me until I hand her the dregs of my morning cuppa! Her Auntie Rottrover caught her drinking an iced coffee... black, no sugar! She eats tomatoes right out of my hand, fresh picked from the garden!

This is her reaching for cantaloupe! After sharing quite a few pieces with her, I later caught her with the other half in the middle of the kitchen floor... chomping away!

And don't get me started on the other stuff of mine she wants: my dental floss tucked under my swim towel by the pool or  a glass bead wrapped up for a customer. The other day, I started for the car and realized that she wasn't with me... a first! She was digging up the spot where I hid my house key!

The funniest part is...her mouth is really too big for her head. My bestie says she has a clown mouth... and it's true! Little bits fall out the sides all the time!  This is leftovers from the great carrot heist:

We always say if the pawrents leave it where you can get it then it is fair game. Good thing she went for the carrots and not the onions.
