It’s no secret that dogs love food. They’re always ready to put in extra work to get a tasty snack. This is why it’s important to always keep your food out of the reach of mischievous pups.
Kara Probin thought she was, but her food kept disappearing as she turned around. So she decided to investigate the situation. She was shocked to catch video of her shy dog named River stealing cupcakes. The puppy’s method is awesome!
The secret of the missing cupcakes
Probin has two German Shorthaired Pointer. 3-year-old River has a younger sister named Winnie, who is usually the mischievous of the two. When Winnie was younger, she tried to get food from the table so the family naturally assumed that Winnie was the suspect for the missing food. After all, River would beg near the table but never take anything.
Baking had become a new hobby for Probin lately. She especially loved making special dog biscuits for the puppies. However, she did notice that at least 15 cupcakes had disappeared from the counter since she started baking. Every time, Winnie looked like the culprit so they didn’t think about it much. But after several unsuccessful attempts to keep the food out of reach, they decided to find evidence.
In one scenario, a piece of cake was left in a bowl on the back of the counter. Both German Shorthaired Pointer Pointers are smaller than their breed normally, so Probin assumed there was no way they could reach them. But then, minutes later, she found the bowl empty, but was still sitting right side up. Probin couldn’t believe her eyes.
Eventually Probin set up a hidden camera in the kitchen. She put three leftover dog cupcakes from River’s birthday on the counter. Then the truth finally came out.
Caught in action
The video focused on a platter of the unfrozen cupcakes. River quickly approached the plate on her hind legs and sniffed the candy. Then she kept scratching the cupcakes until her toenail finally reached one. She happily drew it to her and devoured it. She repeated the same actions for another cupcake. Probin had never seen her shy dog act so mischievously.
“She must be a criminal genius,” Probin said. “I was shocked when I checked the camera and saw that it was River. I thought it was our other pointer Winnie since she’s the greedy one. “
River’s secret has now been revealed, so it will be difficult for her to continue stealing. Probin now describes the puppy as her “little cake thief”. It looks like Probin and her family will be watching River carefully until they can regain their trust. Who knows what other things River hid from her mother?
