The Strawberry Thief

Luscious Strawberry

My Auntie T is the family gardener. You can find her outside puttering around the yard every weekend when the weather is reasonable. That means MOST of the time you can find her in the backyard planting this, pulling that, changing something.

One of her pride and joys are her strawberry plants. They are pretty good producers and are planted in barrels - which keep them away from snails and other strawberry loving critters. Well, that is, away from MOST critters. You see, recently the strawberries have been disappearing. Not a lot at once. Just a couple here and there.

Looking a little skimpy FRUITwise

Auntie T set up perimeter security and until this weekend had no luck at all catching the perpetrator.So she added a camera closer to the action. . . one that was hidden IN the plant. She was sure she would catch the thief. . . AND SHE DID!

I was jumping for joy at this news. I mean, I love our strawberries and I don't want anything to happen to them before they are ready to share. But I noticed that suddenly Auntie T was following me when I went outside to do my bidness. And at night no one turned on the light outside so I could find my way around. It was all very suspicious behavior and ALL TOWARD ME!

The accused
Pugsonally, I could not tell who or what the thief is based on THAT photo!

You're right, the picture is MUCH too blurry to tell who the thief might be.

Uh oh - that photo looks a bit incriminating, Noodles. You might want to get a good lawyer on retainer. :)
