Pacey is the pet metronome dog of a drum school instructor, and it looks like sitting in on lessons has paid off.

Sorry, Animal, but you've just been made redundant.

Look At This Thieving Dog of the Day

Canteloupe the two-year-old Italian Greyhound loves to steal things from her owner's desk, so a friend decided to set up a camera and catch her red-pawed.

CamelsAndFriends, the YouTuber behind the doggie surveillance operation, writes:

It got me wondering how exactly she gets up there and how she chooses what she steals, so I decided to start filming! I left the camera on a tripod pointed at the desk and a week later these are my results of Cantaloupe's exploits.

The evidence is clear, ladies and gentlemen. You must find this dog guilty of being cute.

Stairlift For Dogs of the Day
- -

Today in inventions that are simultaneously adorable and tragic: UK insurance company More Th>n has prototyped an automated stairlift to carry obese dogs up tough flights of stairs.

The world's first doglift, called "Stair of the Dog 2022," was conceived in response to a doggie obesity epidemic that the company says could see 52% of the UK's dogs dangerously overweight by 2022. The device, which a pooch can activate with a paw-press, is expected to cost $8,000.

"This is a vision of the future we really don't want to see become a reality," says More Th>n's John Ellenger, who suggests dog owners show their canine friends some love without giving them "inappropriate and fat-laden foods."
