Shoplifting with Snickers
Snickers is a Labradoodle and, without a doubt, is my favorite service dog. Loving someone else's service dog is a no no, but I've always been a rule breaker.
I really hope I don’t find Snickers on America’s most wanted. Snickers accompanies Judi, his partner, everywhere. She told me that the other day, when she and Snickers were loading the car in the Walmart parking lot, after Snickers dutifully jumped into the car, she proceeded to fold her walker and load it.
Out of the shopping basket fell a hat, some shampoo, and some conditioner. Snickers, it seemed, had gone on a buying spree of his own. The only problem was that Snickers had neither money nor a credit card.
Judi was mortified and didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, there was a Walmart employee walking by, so she tried to explain Snickers’ transgressions and asked if she could return the items for her.
The long arm of the law didn’t even get involved.
