Chase is the office dog for today.
I regularly use a private investigator who came in to visit about a case we’re working. He’s a dog person (Golden Retriever), and has always loved my Cardis. Chase launched himself at Jay, thoroughly cleaned his face and hands, and curled up on the couch with him while we began to discuss what to do next. Chase eventually jumped off the couch and dragged out a toy which he carried and shook. “I’m cute! I’m cute! Play with me.” Then he sidled up to the couch and stole Jay’s iPhone from the armrest. I retrieved it and directed Jay to put it in his pocket because Chase eats cell phones. Jay seemed a little disconcerted by the barbarity of it all, but put the phone away. Then Chase made a quick grab and took Jay’s glasses that had been sitting on a stack of documents. I rescued the glasses. The dog was very cute about both of his stolen items and promptly gave them up when asked, but overall he’s a bad dog!
