Pick Pocket Poodle
Guard those purses and watch your pockets… Leko has a new trick to mark down in his books. He picks pockets!
Leko kept pestering Mike for treats, so instead of repeatedly having to get up and get him more, Mike stashed a few in his pocket. It only took minutes before Leko uncovered the treats, and dug his head deep into the pocket to retrieve them. Thanks to that one incident, he now thinks ALL pockets have treats! If you are sitting on the couch and wearing a hoodie, don’t be surprised if he comes right over to you and inspects your pockets!
Leko will also check purses. My mom and sister are notorious for bringing him cookies and toys in their purses when they come to visit us. In fact, when they come over, checking their purses is the first thing he does! If you don’t have anything he will not take your word for it, and will cry and pester you until you empty out the contents just to prove to him if there are treats or not. I was embarrassed once when Leko and I met a new neighbor and he immediately went up to her and shoved his head into her purse!
I can only hope Leko’s pocket picking and purse inspecting stays at searching for treats and not money, or you will be seeing this little guy on the next America’s Most Wanted!
