    I’ve seen this a hundred times, but (even if it is fake) it gets a laugh from me because my little girl was like that.

    She’s gone now, but I had to take her to the vet five times because she got into things and gorged herself so bad that she couldn’t breathe right. Every time I thought I had things locked up enough, stored securely, she’d prove me wrong lol.

    Her and the cat even worked together to raid the garbage can. The dog would get planted, and the cat would jump on her back and then knock things out. We weighted the lid, and that didn’t work. Switched to one with a pedal, and the dog would step on it so the cat could acrobat her way in. We ended up just having to keep it outside entirely, no kitchen garbage can at all.

    Oh! And we kept some supplies on the top shelf of the cabinets under the counter. This was after the cat died. This stumpy little corgi managed to pop the door open, climb her way to the back of the cabinet and pull out cocoa powder, all in twenty minutes while I showered. That was another vet trip lol.

    Never underestimate the power of stumpy legs and satellite ears.

    I miss both of those girls so much.

      Honorary mention to my cat, who has not only drank a glass of vermouth while I was in the shower, but knocked over and consumed a much of a bottle of wine, and even tried to get into some gin while I was making a cocktail.

      Fortunately, she’s just a drunk. She won’t touch any people food whatsoever, just insects, kibble, and rodents. I keep her locked in my bedroom while I’m at work now.

        Jfc! I’ve known dogs ans cats that would drink beer if they could, and vermouth kinda makes sense, but gin? That’s a little terrifying and a lot interesting.

          I love her dearly, but she is the poster child for “different types of intelligence”.

          She can open semi-round doorknobs, but also sometimes runs headlong into walls until she starts stumbling around woozy.

      When my dog was 6 months old she ate one of those 5 foot long bully sticks in under 20 minutes. The vet told us to watch her for 12 hours as long as she was panting she was fine but if she started whining we were told to bring her in immediately. Thankfully, she was fine but we necer got her anything that big ever again.

        They’re so much trouble in such a relatively small package lol. But they’re worth every bit of it!

        and usually the motivation is food related.

          As almost a cruel joke, we’ve managed to breed out satiation of some dogs, leading to them always being motivated by food, since they are always hungry.

      My cat ate a long strip of plastic from the underlay of my old carpet when I was pulling it up, unbeknownst to me. A turd formed around it and when it came out, broke into chunks. He then started playing with the turd string, dragging it through the house.

    This is me being cynical, but this has gotta be fake.

    The poses, the way the dog and the surrounding area is perfectly covered in jam.

    Do dogs even like jam enough to do that? How is it getting access to a whole jar of jam? For a start they’re in a closed jar, and they’re usually on a countertop as well.

    And this all happened in a shop that sells sunglasses for some reason. It does not add up.

    I don’t know why I bothered writing all that, a lil high tbh so jus ignore me

      No, I think you’re on to something. I often thought there might be fakes on the internet but never dared to say it out loud.

          Big if true
          But honestly, I don’t trust Fox News. I saw a YouTube video that said that they lie about YouTube

      It might be faked for the photos, hard to tell.

      But corgis are chow hounds, and will get info anything remotely food related. I just made a comment about one of my corgis and the stuff she got into.

      So, I believe the story could be true, even if it’s exaggerated in detail, or the pictures were set up after the fact.
