Smarter Than the Average Bear

What'd he break this time?

I imagine that a lot of mamas (fur baby or human baby) wonder this immediately after hearing crashes in the nether parts of their homes.  Most often, I'm occupied in the bathroom.  It's like a law of nature.

For this crashing glass sound, I was in the shower.  What the heck?! (except I said a little cuss).

Somebody found himself an afternoon snack. He just saddled up to the noontime buffet, courtesy of his ingenuity and determination.

After further investigation, I saw that the glass food jar upturn was actually a happy accident.  He was trying to feed right out of the bag that we store behind the glass jar.  That little stinker had eaten a hole in the side of the bag and was snacking at his leisure for the better part of the last two weeks.

I took pictures as evidence for Mr. P before relocating the bagged food to a higher shelf and sweeping up the rest.  I also recounted some lessons I've been slow to learn.  1. Where there's a will, there's a way.  And Oliver will find the way.  2. Don't underestimate him.

What's your pet gotten into this week?


  1. Haha! Our cats do that too! Which is why we now store their food in a plastic tub with a tight fitting lid.

  2. That's hilarious. My parents' Jack Russell knew how to open the kitchen cabinet to get to the treats. When my mom told people she had the kitchen redone to dog proof it, she wasn't kidding.
