For the first time I caught Elly stealing food, I was putting clothes away in my dad’s room down the hall and heard crunching! She looooooves cheese so I’m guessing the Cheetos were too much to resist. Turn the volume up so you can hear her crunch!

I don’t blame her. Cheetos are so hard to resist! Besides, she is too cute to be considered being bad! That face wouldn’t do any thing wrong….
My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019. With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer. I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud! He will live forever in my Heart!

Bad????? You called her baaaaddd??? That is a good girl right there!!! She was polite, dainty and only ate one at a time. She took it gingerly out of the bowl and then ate it on the floor so she wouldn’t get crumbs on the chair! Such a good girl!!!
Frankie steals food all. the. time…no matter how high, how well hidden, how empty the bag might be that he stole. And unlike sweet Elly, if he gets busted, that just means he has to eat whatever it is faster…swallow it whole, bag and all. No remorse, no sweet look like Elly gave you, just a look of pure pride, whadda’ ya’ gonna’ do ’bout it look and a couple of shrill howls just to brag about it!
Yes, Elly is a very good girl…..and I hope she gets Cheeto treats every night now!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

OMD! Hahahah! That was the most adorable Cheeto stealing I ever saw! And watching her smack her lips so that mama wouldn’t see her orange mustache was just priceless. It looks like she had already scavenged one before you started rolling, and of course it’s Cheetos! You can’t eat just one!!
That was way too well behaved misbehavin’!

Elly you have such restraint! What polite cheeto thief you are. I would have eaten the whole dang bowl.
