Beware of dog: Crafty pup sneaks chicken nuggets while guardian is out

by Richard Hall Published: January 10, 2014

Dogs are smart animals, and as a guardian to two pups (I kind of feel bad calling myself an owner) I’ve seen my share of craftiness come out of their actions.

But I’ve never dealt with something like this.

In this video you will meet Lucy the Beagle, who has learned that delicious foods are cooked in her guardian’s toaster oven. Her guardian, Rodd Scheinerman, explains:

A few weeks before she took a roast out of the oven that had been cooking for a few hours… So I set her up. I put some nuggets in the oven… Pressed record and left. This was 7 minutes into the video.

I do wonder how Lucy was able to get the nuggets out of the oven without burning herself. As one commenter on Gawker put it: “She used an oven mutt.”
