Saved for a Rainy Day - Barkley's Busted

Uh oh, someone's home early.

No, seriously, I was just returning your slipper which you carelessly left laying around.


Really.

You know that they say if you can't look someone in the eyes, you're lying. Not true. Really. (Ask any politician.)

But I'm just too adorable to be in trouble.*

I did not have slipper relations with that footwear.

I'm convinced he is innocent.

Aw, the ol' "You couldn't scold a dog that's this cute, could you?" eyes. Scooter used to pull those on me every time I busted him using my fresh-out-of-the-dryer laundry as a bed. God, I miss that dog so much...

Murphy says that he'll take Barkley's case, both the defense and the civil action for unfair persecution of a cute species.

Barkley is looking good.
I think he's innocent of all charges.

Tango Juliet said...

I'm certain the lab results will clear him.

ahem.

He's just bringing you your slippers - whether you want them or not. ;)

Too funny: My word verification is "defidow." Is that a legal term about dogs and this case?

Sassy said...

The bottom of your slippers look just like mine, had to check if they were still by the side of my bed. If they weren't I was going to blame Barkley.... then again after looking into those sweet brown eyes I couldn't.

My boy who is a gold lab is under my feet right now, he has big brown adorable eyes like Barkley. Gotta love um!

Lila said...

Those eyes just suck you in!! I have to concur. He was returning it. I am sure of it!

SHARON said...

I know he's innocent. Look at those big brown eyes. My yellow lab, Abby, used the same look on me and won me over EVERY time.

A clear case of entrapment if ever I've seen one.

Borepatch said...

Err, just tidying up for you?

Mrs. S. said...

Ah, but where has Barkley already hidden the left slipper? It may take you until winter to find it. Happy hunting.

I wanted to post something witty, but I'm laughing too hard! That is one seriously adorable dog. Guilty as all heck too, but how could anyone be angry at such a hangdog expression?

Larry said...

Nooo, see, he was just bringing you your slippers, cause he knew you've had a hard day. Sit down and relax, he'll go get the other one for you!
ROFL!

Ok, total thread drift. I just had to sign on to advise you that Spenard's Roadhouse, in Anchorage, AK has a "Bacon of the Month" special. http://spenardroadhouse.com/whatsnew.html

Thumping from the living room last night right after retiring. Enter cautiously with Kimber in right hand. Find Siberian Husky at end of couch devouring a book...literally devouring.

What does the intellectual Husky read on a Friday night? "Russia and the West Under Lenin & Stalin" by George F. Kennan!

Who can scold a dog trying to improve himself and learn about his heritage?

Sherry said...

You are not going to win against those eyes! The trouble with Labs. . . they know how to control you with their eyes. Molly is a master at that.

On a Wing and a Whim said...

Do we refer to that as plea bargaining? Yes, yes we do. "Pleeeease mom, I was just...."

Heh. Hope you have a great weekend, and Barkley doesn't get into too much trouble.

davidc said...

I recognize that expression. Misty, my black lab, whom i miss very much, had that same look in her eyes when i caught her chewing on something of mine. Not guilty by reason of inate cuteness.

They're never too old to make those puppy eyes.
