From time to time, our four-legged best friends will get into trouble, no matter how sweet or loving they are. It’s surprising what kind of mischief they can cause when no one is looking!

Take this dog, Chase, for example. When his mom discovered him with puffed-out cheeks, she knew he was up to something.

When she began to question him about it, all he could do was give her his best puppy dog eyes.

When she continued the interrogation, though, he knew it was best to fess up…

So, he hilariously confessed to his crime and showed mom what he was up to!

Somehow, this hungry pooch was able to stuff an incredible amount of tater tots into his mouth while mom wasn’t looking.

He was saving them for later, but it appears he took a few too many and gave himself away.

Now, that kind of tater tot hoarding takes some serious talent!

The good boy spat out all of the stolen tater tots. As a sign of gratitude, his mom found him a more appropriate treat him for him to have.

Even if he didn’t get away with this tater tot burglary, you have to admire his clever spirit!
