Crime Report

The accused: 


Pictured here with one plastic grocery bag with traces of milk chocolate and a more-than-usual guilty looking face.

The victim:  

Approximately 8 oz of Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips





Report at the scene:  Witness walked into house to find a mostly empty bag of chips in the middle of the kitchen floor and the electric skillet (cleaned and waiting to be put away) knocked across the counter. Suspiciously, Wiley was not waiting at the door, which he typically does.


The previously opened bag had held about 10 oz and was hidden on the counter in a grocery bag, behind the electric skillet; it now held about 2 oz.  She heard crinkling coming from the living room and walked in to find the dog lying on the chair, avoiding eye contact.



She immediately began questioning the suspect in a loud commanding tone of voice, while he squeezed his eyes shut tightly. 


Since he had consumed chocolate once before, she consulted the chart she had explaining chocolate poisoning and much to her relief found he was nowhere near a lethal level.   She decided to monitor the situation closely before drawing any conclusions.


As the evening progressed, she noticed a usually high-energy dog taking on the behavior characteristics of a Tasmanian Devil.  He was bounding off the furniture, agility-competition style. He found the only squeaky toy he had and squeaked it for at least 45 minutes. Then he jumped on her on the couch and smothered her with affection.


The witness reports he literally covered her body with his while pushing her laptop out of the way. 


She said he then sat up on her stomach, and began "trust-falling" backwards from his full height, expecting to be caught. It's not the first time he's done it, but it's the first time he did it from such a height. 


The witness apologizes for the blurry quality of the photos but the crime scene photographer was not expecting to have to take pictures of so much movement.

Eventually the witness was forced to pet the suspect or risk having her laptop destroyed. 



 Summary:  Based on the eye-witness report and forensic evidence Wiley is going to be charged with Off-species Consumption of Chocolate, Counter Surfing, and Relentless Attention Seeking and Toy Squeaking.


 Do you have pictures of your pet looking guilty or committing a crime?  Please share them. Even if your pet is not a rescue pet, Wiley would like to do some feature posts on your pets and what they try to get away with, so he doesn't look as naughty by comparison. So now is your chance!  We want pictures of any pet looking guilty or being naughty!
