While accompanying Pat on a routine grocery shopping trip, Tribble thought he’d just help himself to some of the dog toys in the pet isle.
This was completely unnoticed by Pat until he was cornered and questioned at checkout time. Another shopper witnessed the event and followed both of them throughout the store and to the checkout counter to make sure Tribble was held accountable for his actions.
Since this was Tribble’s first offense, he was let off with a stern warning and no treats for the next 15 minutes. A harsh sentence, but fair considering the circumstances. The toy was calling his name, according to him.
