Blast From the Past

Last week we had a visitor in the house for a few days.  Thomas' co-worker Mike was going out of town and their original dog sitter fell ill so he took us up on our standing offer to watch their family pooch.  Their dog actually lived with us for about a month last year because he was one of our fosters.  Mike's family fell for Gilligan when they watched him for a weekend for us while we were out of town and he's been with them ever since.

Now named Ukui (pronouced oo-koy), we get to hear all about Gilligan's shenanigans whenever Thomas and Mike run into each other at the office.  And shenanigans there are!

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised.  This is what happened last year when I somehow had a major brainfart and left him loose in the house while I went out

In Ukui's defense, there were old ribs in the trash, so we couldn't really blame him and figured it was a one time incident.

Turns out this was just the tip of the iceberg.  Ukui is apparently a master at opening bottom freezers on fridges.  This surprised us because we have the same fridge as Mike's family and Ukui never once tried to get into ours.  I guess he was waiting for a forever family to show his true colors!  Anyway, once he gets the freezer open he eats pretty much everything in there.  Frozen meats, ice cream and his apparent favorite, Tombstone Classic Sausage Pizza. 

Ukui's family literally uses The Club to keep the stuff they put in the freezer in the freezer instead of in Ukui's belly!

In any event, Ukui was very well behaved during his visit with us and didn't even try to break into our freezer.  Although he may or may not have eaten a box of pop tarts I accidentally left out.  But I'll never tell.
