Darcy and the Mesh Shorts

Hello!  Hope you're having a great week so far!  Today I wanted to share a little story with you about my cute little pup, Darcy, and the Mesh Shorts.

A little background here: from day 1, Darcy has LOVED Nate's smelly clothes and shoes.  The first night when she was home with us, she fell asleep with her little face in one of Nate's shoes.  Nate said, "I always knew that someday I'd meet a girl who loved how my shoes smelled."


She knows what she likes.

On the other hand, I'm not a huge fan of his smelly shoes.  He had one pair of shoes when we lived in Boston that I wouldn't let inside the apartment.  So I guess you can see why he was so excited to have someone "on his side."

Anyway, as Darcy got older, she got in the habit of stealing Nate's mesh shorts out of his hamper.  She would mostly do this while we were sleeping.  In the morning we would find them in her doggy bed.  One night, Nate just put a pair of mesh shorts in her bed before he went to sleep.  He figured he would save her the trouble in the middle of the night of finding them.  Well, in the morning, there were two pairs of mesh shorts in her doggy bed.  So there's that.

On occasion, she had no shame, and cuddled with the mesh shorts in the living room.


It was adorable.  I mean, how can you be mad at that face?

One day, when I was getting ready in the bathroom, I heard the little pup come into our room.  Then she quickly tip-toed pranced back down the hall.  That prance is a sign that she's stolen something she can't have, so I went out to the living room to check.  And I found this...

The rug pulled back with something underneath it and her little paw holding down the corner, trying to look as innocent as can be.

When I pulled the rug back, there they were.  Mesh shorts.

She knows what she likes!

Pet owners, does your dog have a favorite thing of yours that he/she loves to steal?
