Ask Aunt Foley

Dear Aunt Foley:  Last week I read “Ask Aunt Foley” and you answered why us dogs are not considered tax deductions and why this is wrong.  I decided to see if there were any documents in my Daddy’s desk that would support him claiming us as deduction.  After it was done the room looked like this: Daddy was quite upset.  Did I do the wrong thing?  - Jasper

Dear Jasper:  Of course you did the right thing in looking for receipts.  Any time you can facilitate more kibble being brought in the house it is a good thing.  But, as the former top dog attorney in the country I must admonish you for what you did wrong.  Barking about it.

Again, totally support the searching for receipts, but, when your Daddy came home, you should have been sniffing around, not even looking at your Dad, intently sniffing, even when he is yelling at you.  After he is tired of listening to himself yell he might notice you sniffing.  At that moment you look at the door and whine, then run to the front door, then back in the room, then to the front door, then back in the room, whining all the way.

After a while your Dad will become curious about your running.  Was it possible someone broke in the house?  Is that what you are trying to tell us boy?  Did someone go through my papers?  Honey, where is the bank book and our social security cards? Suddenly everything is about their papers and they have forgotten you, and your supposed misdeeds.  

So, before your rip apart your Dad’s office have a plan to blame someone else, even if it is Sumudderdawg.


  1. Nice one and well played. I always blame the squirrels but she seldom falls for it. Play bows to you master. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Good advice, as always, Aunt Foley. We'll have to try that one.

River Song 2012-2022

  At the end of the day what was wrong with River was everything: Fluid in the lungs, in the stomach, fluid in the heart, and very high kidney levels.  I think she loved us so hard, with such ferocity, that she used up her heartbeats. Thank you for your love and support. We might take some time from social media.  It is the first time in 26 years we haven't had a dog. We will find a new one, and be back.
