Our dogs’ tendency to find trouble wherever they go is one thing that makes them so endearing. Sure, it can be aggravating and pricey at times. We can’t help but forgive them when their adorable little faces recognize their mistake.
We tend to forgive their shenanigans in record time, whether it’s a pair of half-eaten shoes, a suspiciously burst couch cushion, or a squishy midnight surprise between the toes on a dimly illuminated toilet trip.
This was the situation with Layla, a wicked escape artist. A screen in Layla’s window had been pulled off from the inside, according to her mother. Layla stood off to the side, deeply saturated in shame, while the screen’s parts hung outside the window like a flag of conquest.
Layla’s mother asked what happened. Layla responded with a comical yawn as if the inquisition was boring her. A cry of shame and guilt shortly followed this sarcastic yawn.
Layla can be seen lying at her mother’s feet in the video. She slid over onto her back and sat in a submission position. This is also the most convenient position for belly rubs. Belly rubs were definitely the order of the day for this bad girl, and it’s hard to say no to such a lovely face.
Layla’s mother moved closer to the glass to examine the damage. Layla tried her hardest to divert her mother’s attention away from her with a playful tug at her shorts, but she was unsuccessful.
Layla’s mother asked the dog as she pointed to the smashed screen. “Are you the one?” The look of sheer shame on Layla’s face said it all. Her sweet face was dripping with the weight of her guilty conscience.
Layla’s constant tail wagging does a very decent job of defusing the issue. Thankfully, Layla looks to have been discovered safe and well in her backyard. Her misadventures didn’t take her far from the crime scene.
