One Montana pup landed himself in the doghouse because he ate $500 in cash that belonged to his owner.
According to the Helena’s Independent Record, graphic artist Wayne Klinkel and his wife were on a road trip to visit their daughter and her husband when they made a pit stop at a restaurant and left their golden retriever Sundance in the car. Turns out, while they were eating, their beloved pet had found the five $100 bills and a $1 bill hidden in one of the cubbyholes, and managed to scarf down four-and-a-half of the Benjamins, but left the $1 on top of the driver’s seat, proving that he has expensive taste.
This list from pet finder might be interesting.
Here is one of the “facts”:
24. No, it’s not just to make themselves look adorable. Dogs curl up in a ball when they sleep due to an age-old instinct to keep themselves warm and protect their abdomen and vital organs from predators.
True, but I occasionally do this to make myself look adorable if the situation demands it.

And what, I ask, is wrong with that?
Click on the photo to read the sign. Looks like a setup to me.
Note how neat everything looks.
This story, alas, speaks for itself. While something like this is unlikely to happen in my hometown, Manhattan, especially if you are a Labrador retriever like me, not so in other parts (the very unfortunate Wilma is pictured above).
Here is the story from Metro:
A pet dog was shot dead just yards from its owner’s house after being mistaken for a rabbit by a hotel’s pest controller.
John Kirby found his whippet Wilma dead on the other side of the hedge at the bottom of his garden, which borders the Meon Valley Marriott Hotel golf course near Winchester,
The 45-year-old heard what he described as a ‘muffled crack’ then the sound of four-year-old Wilma yelping with pain.
The builder said he let Wilma and his other dog Buffy out at night and they ran through bushes on to the neighbouring golf course.
He was whistling to beckon them back in when he heard a shot and instantly feared the worst.
‘I shouted out “Wilma, Wilma” but only Buffy came back. All I could hear was about six yelps.’
Mr Kirby eventually found Wilma with a gunshot wound and covered in blood.
‘I was just devastated. It was awful to be honest – how could you shoot a dog?
‘I want to speak to the person who did it and just ask “why?”. How could you mistake it for anything else?
‘She was just a whippet and a really nice dog who was like a member of the family.’
Police were called in following the incident, which happened at around 9.15pm on Tuesday.
A spokesman said yesterday: ‘I can confirm that we are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a dog within the grounds of the Marriott Hotel at Shedfield.
‘A man has been spoken to in connection with the incident but no arrests have been made.’
Pest control has now been suspended at all of Marriott’s UK hotels while the investigation takes place.
A hotel spokesman said: ‘We are deeply sorry for the distress this unprecedented incident has caused the dog’s owners and we will do all we can to assist the police investigations.’
