Sienna is a thief.
If she can escape the yard she steals other dogs’ and kids’ toys. So far she’s brought home 3 expensive chew toys, countless animal bones left out for the neighbours’ dogs, 2 plastic dog dishes, 2 basketballs, dozens of tennis balls, several action figures, and a small plastic tricycle. (?) If she knew how to hot wire cars, she’d probably bring those home.
One night I was bemoaning the fact that I didn’t have a 9 inch square pan to fit in my toaster oven. The very next night Sienna jumped the fence and when she came back, she had a 9 inch square pan full of food.
Arg! My neighbours hate me.
When Sienna finds something especially good to steal, she will haul it home and jump back into the yard. This keeps neighbour dogs from getting what is most likely theirs.
One day I noticed she was eating something in the yard. People have been known to toss poisoned meat over the fence of annoying dogs so I rushed out to see what she was eating. It was frozen meat wrapped in butcher paper. Looking around the yard I saw 3 more butcher paper wrapped parcels. There were 2 packs of stew meat and a pack of hamburger. I found a fifth package of meat on my deck.
