Video of My Dog Trying to Get a Cookie Out of a Wastebasket

I was going to write a paean to America the beautiful - but I'll spare us all that. (And that is the last time the word "paean" will ever appear here. Promise). See, I sense that the internet is impatient with my boring, self-regarding content. I hear that. So here's a little clip of my dog trying to get the remainder of a "Chips Ahoy" cookie out of a wastebasket.

A little set up: The fun began with Maisy approaching the wastebasket like a commando, inching forward on her elbows and stomach. Then she started to growl and bark, staring intently at the can. I thought there must be a mouse or something behind it. Nope. Chips Ahoy - partial.

I helped a sister out by putting the can on its side. Still, it was a puzzle for her.

Enjoy. (PS She got the cookie in the end). Happy 4th.

I am so glad that the cookie was safely snaffled.

Mme! Nice to see you. Yes. Her efforts were rewarded, although I am not sure that the award was commensurate with that effort.

Hi R- Me too. Hard to go wrong with a post about a dog...

Dear Lulu - So nice to see you around. I wish you had one too - but it would make all your globe trotting more complicated. I am off to see where you are now.
