Unlucky Penny

Generally speaking, Penny is a well-behaved dog.  But sometimes, the ancient appetites are just too strong, and the animal urges will overpower even the most careful training.

Consider when you discover the enticing aroma of Cheerios in the kitchen, and see a cereal box invitingly perched near the edge of the counter.  How could any dog resist?  And once your head enters the box, and you taste the delectable, heart-healthy, crunchy oat goodness, of course you are going to thrust your head in ever deeper, so that each little O finds its way to your ravenous stomach.

And when you are done — not sated, perhaps, but done, because there is nothing left in the box — all there is to do is wait in cellophane silence for discovery, reprimand, and freedom, all the while savoring your succulent snack.

  1. I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THERE WAS CELLOPHANE IN THERE. OTHERWISE THE DOG WOULDA SUFFOCATED. SEEMS TO ME IT’S JUST THE CARDBOARD BOX.

    I.E. WHERE ARE THE CHEERIOS ON THE FLOOR?

  2. We have a child who, at the age of two, put a potty ring over her/his head (the child shall remain nameless) and required help to extricate him/herself just as did Penny. We tried not to laugh as we remedied the situation. Wish we had taken a picture.
