Dog-Gone Suspicions In Shell Knob

Services for Real Estate Pros with Midamerica Referral Network


Ever wonder what your dog does when you can't see him?

I live in a rural area in the Ozarks on beautiful Table Rock Lake, about 12 miles from Shell Knob, Mo. Most of the time, our three acres is large enough for our dog to chase squirrels, lizards and dig up moles. However, there have been times when we wish we had a camera mounted on her head to see where travels have taken her. It would be helpful to know who we should be apologizing to.









She is a fairly large dog - about 65 pounds - chocolate brown, which makes her fairly visible. She's not small and quick like a beagle or terrier. That being said..... who lost the rack of bbq ribs she came home with last summer? Where did the turkey leg with partial breast attached come from?

Then last night she may have gone fishing for food, as her legs and belly were very wet when I spotted her circling the house with her mouth full of two large hamburger buns! Perhaps some bass boat lost them as they zoomed on by , but if that were the case, wouldn't the buns have been soggy? They weren't. She wasn't that interested in eating them and relinquished her ill gotten gains easily - head and ears drooping - knowing she was in trouble.

Many of our neighbors are summer people, so they may not know how their food goes missing.

Should I put up a Dog Warning sign?

Dogs deserve a chance at mischief just as much as anyone. Let her just have fun. Great post, and sounds like a very cool dog.
