11/24/11 The case of the missing turkey

It has been brought to my attention that our Thanksgiving turkey is MISSING!!! Here it is Thanksgiving Day and we do not have a turkey because someone stole it from the refrigerator. Yup, the spot where tom turkey had been residing on the bottom shelf of the fridge is empty. A quick scan of the contents of the fridge revealed only the turkey was missing.

Certainly a dead turkey could not open the fridge door and hop out on its own, so I decide to use my detective skills to track down the culprit who stole MY turkey. I’m embarrassed to say that my first thought was that Ebony and Ceeley had snuck over during the night and helped themselves to the turkey but once my detective mentality kicked in I realized that even Ebby and her fursister would not stoop that low especially since the turkey wasn’t cooked. Now had the refrigerator been full of yummy cooked MEATZ maybe Ebby and Ceeley might have “borrowed” something, but not an uncooked turkey - HeHeHe

I looked for clues around the kitchen and house but nothing seemed out of place except for the fact that tom turkey was gone. All the windows and doors were secure and there was nothing indicating someone had tip-toed in during the night and stole MY turkey.

Who could have possibly been smart enough to pull off such a task? Maybe Zaidie could because he has a driver’s license and has his own MEATZ Mobile. I thought about this for a whole second and then decide he would be crazy to come all the way from Canada just for a turkey so he was crossed off the suspect list. I love you Zaidie and am sorry I even thought you might have done this but lets face it, it would have been a pretty good prank.

How about Demon Flash Bandit? He and his co-conspirator Angel Zoom Smokey certainly are capable of traveling long distances and could have easily make a surprise visit, but they both are more social dogs and have very good manners so coming in uninvited and taking something would not be something they would do, so I crossed them off the list also.

Maybe it was Whitley because she spent a lot of time helping her momma study so she could pass the bar exam therefore she is one cleaver pup. Again I had to stop and think about this and once again I determined that since Whitley is a super smart pup she would never risk being disbarred by getting an arrest record so she too was off the suspect list. Just as I was crossing Whitley off the list I had another thought maybe Whitley got Finley to help but I had to revert back to my original thinking that neither of the girls would take something that did not belong to them so they too were removed from the suspect list.

My mind was racing and my stomach was growling. I was beyond hungry and was getting very agitated to say the least. I had been looking forward to having some nice cooked turkey for my dinner tonight and now the darn turkey had been taken. Who might have done such a thing? Think, think I was saying to myself and all of a sudden my little brain was telling me that maybe instead of looking for possible suspects I should eliminate those that I was sure had not taken the turkey. I knew it wasn’t Professor Chester as he would not risk loosing his chair at the collage. I could cross off Toto, Harvey, Ali, Beanster and the rest of his pack because they were probably outside playing in the snow and would not want to come my way because we had no snow. I even crossed off the Beesuns pups Bacon and Beanie because the distance was too far even though they have both been know to roam a bit. Mazy was certainly off the list since she has a farm full of animals and would not need one dead turkey in California – BOL, BOL. Distance also eliminated Redford, Cooper, Ella, Buttercup, Milo, Lobo, Dent, Grunt, Thunder, Ms. Alex, Abby, Lexi, Reilly, Doo, Walker, Samwise, Jack Freckles, Destiny, Chance, Austin, Buzz, Halo, Maxwell, Sox, Dora, Coffee, Biscotte, Missy, Finnigan, Zoe, Shiloh, Fizzy, Pepper, Bailey, Sully, Socks, Mackie and Isabella.

Now it was time to concentrate on those pups that live closer and might have had an opportunity to come to my house and walked off with MY turkey. There was Hershey but even though he lives in the same state it would be quite a drive to come all the way down here just for a turkey so it just didn’t seem likely, plus he is a new driver therefore, I think it is safe to eliminate him. Could Anya have come over and walked away with the turkey? No, she is a service dog and they have excellent training - she would never leave her momma unattented. How about those Chihuahua sisters Tinker Bell, Halo and Shyla? They are about 2 hours away as are Tanner and Arnold could one of them be smacking their lips right now getting ready to eat MY turkey? Somehow my inner voice told me none of them had anything to do with the missing turkey. Luna, Hobo and Milo are even closer but I’m sure they would not take my turkey because they are my pals. So who took the darn turkey?

It was then that I spotted Coco Rose under the daybed trying to hide something. She was drooling uncontrollably making a big mess on the dog bed that we share I might add. The closer I got to where she was the louder her growls became. Yes, the little piglet was as happy as can be curled around the turkey. The funny thing is she wasn’t eating it she was just hoarding it.

As I was about to approach her to retrieve the turkey from under the bed, I awoke. Yes pups it was all a very bad dream and some of you were in it with me – BOL, BOL

I hope each and every one of you had a very Happy Thanksgiving. I’m going to go have another helping of turkey now and give thanks that this was only a dream.

Puffy-that wasn't a dream, it was a nightmare! The idea of not having meatz for Thanksgiving! I was all upset and ready to cry for my pals who lost their Tom Turkey!You had me going!

I'm so glad your Thanksgiving wasn't ruined by a stolen turkey.... I didn't have any turkey, here....Gma let Gpa choose the menu and he chose Ham. However, it was an excellent Ham. I didn't go hungry....I had some ham and plain baked sweet potatoe. I did get just a bite of pumpkin pie and bun. Hey those grandkids are older now, didn't spill anything!

All my bites were controlled by Gma the food police! Since she is always worried about me becoming a FAT doxie.... cuz, I'm a jumper!hugs and kisses, mazy

Keep your eyes on Coco Rose. Sometimes dreams can foreshadow future events.

Puff, thanks for knowing I was innocent, even in your dream! I was actually playing with live turkeys on a farm that day...
