Verdict: All Guilty as Charged

Today was my first day back to school.  My plan was to work on setting up my classroom.  The students come back next Thursday.  I always feel sad when I have to go back because I will miss the animals and everyone doesn't get as much play time.  I always give the dogs a treat before I leave in the morning, kiss them on the nose, and tell them to be good and I will be back soon.  They are my kids.....I love them........


Yep, this is what I came home to today.   Guess they didn't miss me.  Perhaps they were pissed off that I left them.  They obviously weren't being good dogs.  But at least they ate well while I was off at work.  The empty trash can was a 1/4 filled with dry cat food....I am assuming they didn't share with the cats.  Every treat was gone from the bin which is turned on its side.  Not sure why they didn't at least use the plates sitting in the center of the floor.  Though they did not rip open the bag of Eukanuba dog food, guess they figured I would feed them anyways when I got home.

So let's look at the list of suspects:


Rerun:
12 year old beagle.  Fast is not in his vocabulary.  A total sappy dog.  Never strays away from the house.  Has been known to eat a fresh loaf of Amish bread if left out in his reach.  Barks at unknown things in the yard.  Was caught last week trying to tip over the trash can with the dry cat food in it.  Is always totally insulted if I accuse him of any wrong doing.


Squirt:
11 year old beagle.  Biggest baby.  Whines about everything. Tried to call the animal protective league on me for cutting his toe nails.   Known for sneaking off while I am not watching.  Will chase a rabbit scent for hours only to run in the same circle over and over. Has been caught standing on the kitchen table if the chairs are not pushed in.   Chases the sheep away from the grain bowls so he can have it all to himself.  Recently caught with his head in a bag of cheddar & sour cream potato chips.   


Dixie:
6 year old Cardigan Welsh Corgi.  Biggest suck-up, ass kisser extraordinaire.  Plays the "I am so cute" card to everyone.  Pillow stealer at night.  Has been known to hide fresh chicken eggs in the barns only to be found later by the rotting smell.  Never admits to guilt.  Has Grandpa wrapped around her paw.  Hates to be brushed.  Hides all bones in the manure pile to protect them from who knows.  Was caught tonight at 8:45pm in the house transferring a half eaten bag of dog biscuits from an undisclosed location to the bedroom. 

I believe they are all guilty as charged.  No dog was innocent in this crime. 
What do you think?
Guess I can't go back to work cuz the kids can't be trusted to be home alone...........
