Puppy Really Wanted That Last Piece a Pie
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Astor, a black lab from Brooklyn with a flair for baking, brought a strawberry rhubarb pie to her friends’ Labor Day picnic on Long Island. The afternoon was a great success, but after the meal, Astor got wrapped up in a game of frisbee and never got a chance to taste the fruit of her labors.
After a thorough investigation, sources revealed that Jackson Jefferson ate the last slice before Astor had a chance to call dibs. The eight-year-old had already enjoyed a first slice when he chose to gobble up the final piece, but claimed that he didn’t mean to deprive the lab of his dessert.
“I asked twice if everybody had had some pie,” Jefferson said in his defense. “It’s not my fault if Astor didn’t hear me!”
Astor did not comment on his hurt feelings, but did stare mournfully at Jefferson for the remainder of the picnic.
