I have been wrongly accused again! Ok, so maybe I have been guilty in the past, but it's been months, MONTHS since I went in the neighbors' pond. Apparently they saw some tracks leadin' from their pond the other day and, of course, I came to their mind first. Ever hear of racoons, people? And not to point snouts, but I am not the only labby in the hood! Wellwoof, guess I am the only one who's been caught befure! So they have some reason to suspect me. Tail droop.
Anywoof, ever since neighbor man really yelled at me last time (MONTHS ago) I understand I am not welcome over there! I understand that is not my house! I don't like peoples yellin' at me! I get it! I don't even look at your pond anymore!
But, alas, once guilty furever guilty until proven innocent. My dad stood up fur me, though, and told them I don't go over there anymore. Plus I was with mom that whole mornin' and she can vouch fur my whereabouts. Plus I was totally dry!
So seems I have years of bein' innocent to go befure they stop accusin' me!

Unfur-tuna-tely reputaions do tend to follow one around like a shadow...or a rattling can tied to the tail...
Maybe if it is a coon, you could tell by the tracks?
Woofs! If your conscience is clear, isn't that good enough for you! You can just give all the accusers a nice labby grin!
We believe you, Pepper....sorry you got falsely accused.
You're not alone, pal. We're not the only pups in our 'hood, and We've been wrongly accused by our neighbors too. Our dad told them it wasn't us (although, like you, we were guilty of going in the nieghbor's yard before too). Then later, we saw tracks coming and going from the whole othfur side of their house in and outta their yard. They neighbors didn't apologize, of course, but they know we stay outta their yard now. Keep up the good work, pal, the truth will come to light eventually.
Roxy, sounds like we have a similar situation. We're on pretty good terms with them, they invite my folks to parties an' stuff. So they do their best to inquire in a very nice way. But it's just annoyin' they keep askin' every time sumptin goes in there. We live in the mountains and they chose not to put up a fence! There's all kindsa wildlife and other doggies around here!
And now Notme has taken up swimming! The nerve of that guy.
Ya, Notme really gets around! But it really was him or her this time! Honestly!
I trust the neighbours had the good grace to apologise... and if not... I hope Dad goes and pointedly asks for one !!!
That would be hard to resist. I've never tried to get in a pond, but I have tried to get in fountains. Water's just too much fun. Sorry you got falsely accused of something you didn't do.
Sometimes, people just find excuses to accuse us... But most importantly, our pawrents knwo that we are good!
You good girl, we know it feels terrible to get wrongfully accused!
Thanks pups! Since I did earn this rep once upon a time, I now have to live it down. And I will!
Well geeze, just cause you did it once it doesn't mean it's you every time!! Maybe they should put up a fence if they're that concerned about it!!! You're a good pup, Pepper!!!
Thanks, Fizzy! Although, gulp, it was more than once. Tail droop. But they oughtta put up a fence, 'cuz I'm not the only culprit!
Pepper I am all on your side, Labs stick together! Look I know you did this before (well maybe few times) but that is just wrong to accuse and accuse with no proof. yeah for Daddy to take up for you, those are mean peeps!
Woof Woof, molly
Thanks Molly! We do all wish they would quit automatically blamin' me! They're not really mean just a bit frustrated. They should put up a fence, but that's pretty expensive. I just have to continue to be good and my folks need to keep a constant eye out fur my whereabouts.
