Why was Jack in Jail?
Yesterday we posted a picture of Jack in jail for Black & White Sunday and promised an explanation today. For those of you who proclaimed him innocent. I present our case:
If you are a reader who went to BlogPaws, you know the big huge bag of swag we all took home. For those of you who didn’t go, we wrote about it and presented a picture of it in a previous post. Needless to say, it was a big bag, filled with treats, toys and other great products.
When we got home, I stored our two bags in the ‘guest’ bedroom and promptly forgot about them. Last weekend, I remembered and went back to sort through everything. Many of the treats had chicken in them, so we can’t give them to Jack. I was planning to box them up and take them over to our local shelter.
Jack helped me out and got a few treats of the non-chicken variety and another little gorilla stuffie to play with. We finish up the sorting, I closed the bedroom door and went about our day.
Later that evening, we are sitting in the living room watching TV and I realize that Jack is MIA, and he has been for awhile. Now mind you, Jack is a mama’s boy and he doesn’t leave my side for very long – you never know when I might need saving from the dishwasher or my iPad or something. So when I realized he hadn’t been around for a bit, I got up to look for him.
He was no where to be found in the backyard and not in the front yard either. I didn’t even think about the bedroom because I had closed the door. Well, I guess I didn’t close it enough or someone else in the household (who shall go nameless) opened it. But of course, there’s Jack…in his glory.
He had pulled the bag of treats off the bed and strewn it around the room and was slowly working his way through whatever plastic bag he could easily open. Luckily he had only demolished one small one and was just starting on the second bag of treats when I found him.
Needless to say he is paying much closer attention to that bedroom and the state of the door than he ever did before. It warrants at least 1-2 trips a day down the back hallway to see if the magic door fairy has come and opened it for him.
He ended up in jail, but I think he looks quite happy about it. “Worth every second” he says.
And for those of you concerned that we ‘punish’ our dogs…the jail footage was staged 😉
