Here’s a short but funny story coming to us from Murray, Utah.

Surveillance video at a supermarket in this Salt Lake City suburb caught a dog shoplifting, KSL-TV reported Wednesday.

The video showed the dog walking in the front door of Smith’s Food & Drug in Murray, and heading straight to Aisle 16, the pet food aisle, where it grabbed a bone worth $2.79.

“I looked at him. I said ‘Drop it!'” manager Roger Adamson said. “He looked at me, and I looked at him, and he ran for the door and away he went, right out the front door.”

That reminds me of a funny story Lisa told me about her childhood dog. Nugget, her dog, would get loose occasionally and on return she always had a large meat bone in her mouth. Lisa’s family couldn’t imagine where she was getting such a large bone, or stealing it from. Eventually they found out that Nugget was going a few blocks away to a small grocery store, she would sit outside and wait for the butcher to come out and give her a bone.

If you have any funny tales of thievery give me a bark.

* Shandi with her very large bone, which I don’t think she stole.
