Ginko: The Dog Banana-holic

Upon our return Saturday from a day-trip into the mountains south and west of here, I discovered an amusing sight. It seems Ginko transferred his food-stealing habit from peaches to bananas. Based on the evidence found, including 2-3 leftover stems, we either interrupted his fruit feast. OR, he was saving the rest for later. What do you think?

Was he delicate and refined in his banana binge? Or did we catch our big canine banana-holic in the act?

We just had to laugh. Of all the trouble a home-alone dog can get into, we figure stealing fruit isn’t as bad as other options.

Me? Steal bananas? Nope. Check with Lilly ... I've been right here on the sofa the entire time you were gone.

At least it’s all fruit! This is really funny!

K likes bananas too! But, she’s much too timid to ever steal food. R, the maniac who will steal food whenever we turn our heads, doesn’t like bananas. So, we’ve never had a banana heist in our house!

That’s too funny!

Ginko would find a kindred spirit in Allie — which is why we keep our bananas on top of our refrigerator.
