The Great Toffee Heist by Fantasia Dog
The human made toffee this week. She said it would be extra yummy because she put a tiny bit of cinnamon in it.
When she finished making it she ate a piece and told me how very good it was. She did not give me a piece. It’s such a very sad thing, that my human often has treats, but doesn’t give me any. She left the rest of the toffee in a dish on the dining table.
The next morning, the human had to go out to the pharmacy for more medicine. While she was gone, I used my superior doggy intellect, and possibly a little help from my fluffy feline friend, to get the dish down from the table. (Note: I am neither confirming nor denying Princess was involved. I’m not the kind of dog who would dob on my mates, especially if I might want their help in another enterprise on another day.)
By the time the human had come back, I’d eaten four huge pieces of toffee, with crumbs of another chewed one on the floor, and the rest of the pieces spread all around.
The human was right, that toffee was very tasty!
You will never believe what the human did then. She swept up all of the toffee and threw it in the rubbish. That waste was unbelievable! If she didn’t want it, she could have left it for me.
So, in summary, my story is: toffee is very good, my human is very bad.
