Implausible Deniability

And now I turn the floor over to guest sender-inner-caption-writer AJ!

Dear CIA: Please consider my dog Mr. Adorable (a.k.a the Master of Disaster) for inclusion in your new spy-dog program. He has several characteristics that highly recommend him for service to our country:

1. He is dark colored, small and doesn’t bark, enabling him to stealthily insert himself into most situations. Most people won’t even know he’s there.

2. Even at his small size of 17 lbs, he has the ability to break into almost any space as evidenced by the attached photo. Please note this space was secured not only by a physical barricade but also with a cabinet latch.

Dobby Mess

3. And if he is noticed or caught, he’s so stinking adorable, no one would believe he had anything to do with the mission!


Please let me know ASAP when I can ship him to you for completion of his training.

    Thank you Mike for allowing to be a guest writer, I learned from the best :). And I love your headline!! Oh and the Master struck again last night. Had cookies in a covered container on the counter and we went out for just an HOUR AND A HALF at most, came back to stuff knocked over, cookie crumbs and plastic bags on the floor and him just looking up at us, wagging his tail like “Whaat, What did I do???” I’m very worried about what will greet me tonight as I left dinner cooking in the crockpot on the counter. Actually moved it to a far corner and barricaded it so he won’t get to it (I hope!!), we’ll see! At least this dog keeps me on my toes trying to out-think him.

      It seems Mr. Adorable could show Ethan Hunt a few things 😀

        So true!! Plus I keep hearing the theme to Mission Impossible playing in my head when I see this pix.

          Mission accomplished. Too cute to admonish.

            And this garbage job wasn’t the worse one. There was one where trash was strewn up and down the hall, on his bed, just everywhere. That was the night he got into the greasy aluminum foil and chicken bones, even had to do a load of wash because his bed cover had crap on it. And I thought the can would be okay because we put a baby safety latch on the cabinet, SMH just SMH. And yes, he survived chewing on the chicken bones just fine.

    AJ Is a talent to watch!

    UPDATE! Amazingly, the crockpot (and dinner!) survived an assault from CIA Dog but there was evidence that he did make at least one attempt. Big sigh, now to figure out how to block him from the counters and/or kitchen. Wish me luck!

    Good luck AJ. Our rescue, a black Labrador, named Bucky, trained us to keep our large kitchen garbage pail with pet reinforced lock ON THE FRONT PORCH. Looks like Mr. Adorable has the same plans for you.

    Looks like some crate confinement might be in order—either for the food. the garbage, or the dog.
