Dad Finds ‘Intruder’ Hiding In His Bathroom

Last week, when David was heading to bed at around 11 p.m. when he heard a slurping noise and thought it might be an intruder. Lacy went to bed before David, so he didn’t think it was her.

That’s when David’s heart began to race.

“The room was dark and I was frightened because I heard this strange, loud slurping sound coming from where Lacy’s dish is,” David said. “All I could see was this strange dark mass hovering near her water dish and had no idea what it could be.”

After all, Lacy’s white fur stands out even in an unlit room, and it was too dark to see what this was.

So David nervously turned on the lights…

“When I flicked on the lights, it looked like Lacy’s blanket was just floating in the bathroom,” David said.

It wasn’t a ghost, it was Lacy.

She woke up in the middle of the night and left her blanket on! Lacy cleverly brought along her blanket and was wearing it like a robe.

David was quite impressed with his dog’s lazy ingenuity: “She took her time drinking her water so I ran and grabbed my phone and quickly snapped a few pics.”

David documented her journey.

Lacy almost managed to make the entire trip shielded from the mildly unpleasant outside air. But then the unthinkable happened.

“The blanket fell off on the way so I tucked her back in,” David said. “It was so ridiculous.”

David thought the incident was worth sharing with his daughter, Sarah.

“He regularly gives me Lacy updates so he texted me the next morning with a couple of pictures,” Sarah told The Dodo. “I thought they were hilarious.”

“I always refer to her as his favorite child,” she said.
