Busted.

Huckleberry's new favorite destructive activity has been to dig up the potted plants my landlord has on the back deck. She has A LOT of potted plants, and keeping Huck away from them has taken up the majority of my days lately. He knows he is not suppose to dig in the pots, so when I went outside to check on him and saw these images below, of course, he knew a "Bad dog! You leave it!" and swat on the nose would ensue.
When Huck heard me approach, he quickly turned his back towards me. He was sitting on the end of the deck, facing the water. I said his name...he ignored me...I said his name again...he was as still as a statue. I walked towards him and tried to get him to face me...nope, he kept turning his body so I couldn't see his face!...Finally, I clasped his collar to get him to stop avoiding me, he slowly turns his face towards mine and this is what I see.
SO GUILTY! Of course, I had to snap a picture. Needless to say, the puppy face still holds it's power over me (I mean just look at that!). There was no "bad dog" or swat on the nose.  

My dog has me whipped.

Oh.My.Gosh. We are fur mom twins. I am the SAME WAY. They are naughty but Goldens just have those eyes that melt me every time! Such a great pic :)

Lauren said...

Hahaha, I love how Goldens somehow master the shifty "It wasn't me" look. It's like if they avoid eye contact and look ashamed enough, all will be forgiven and they can then resume whatever bad activity they were doing before they got interrupted :)

Oh my goodness is he a sweetheart. I'm a total pushover for a pretty face and fear I will be a terrible mother!! I have a feeling those plants are in for a long spring and summer!

Absolutely hilarious! My puppy does the same thing...totally gives you the "what mom? I swear it wasn't me!" look.

Huck is too cute and what an adorable name!

Happy Wednesday!

This is so funny and that is actually the cutest face in the whole world...I can completely picture what he's thinking ;)

Oh Fur Mamas everywhere are feeling that! My dog likes to look to the BF for a second opinion if I tell him to do something he doesn't want to.

Cara said...

Oh my goodness this is too cute! That is the guiltiest puppy face ever! (especially with the dirty nose!) Sometimes you just can't help but laugh and then they know you aren't seriously mad.

What a sweet face.

Roxy said...

hahahahah that is hillarious. And the mud in his nose with the guilty eyes. So funny.
Mine ate pooh this morning which made me really angry. Got a smack on the ass. I know it's bad but it is really hard to control my emotions when he eats human shit. He has't done it in like 6 months at least. silly boy.

Chelsea said...

Megan said...

Ashley H said...

Lol
Dogs are so funny. They totally know when they are in trouble. I don't blame you for being soft - that face is TOO cute!

Anne said...

I recently came across your blog as well, from Shades of Gray. Love it!

I used to live in Seattle and I miss it and I'm also a puppy momma. I know that look all to well.

Puppies have to be the best at knocking over plants...better than cats!

I blog over at cupofcaffeine.blogspot.com
Looking forward to your future posts!
