A DOG owner is increasingly curious about just what her pet is refusing to reveal is in his mouth.
Staffordshire bull terrier Leonard first caught his owner’s attention when he rushed into the home they share in Preston, contrary to his reputation as an ‘awkward slow bastard’.
Owner Emma Bradford said: “So I knew he was up to something. He’s only shifted that fast before when he sat down and took a dropped ice cube straight to the anus.
“I wanted to know what it was. Dead rat? Old bin chicken? Something that’ll stain my carpet? But of course he’s f**ked off, just like last time when he took the butter.
“I found him upstairs under the bedroom curtains, guilty but close-mouthed. He wouldn’t drop whatever the bugger it is. Jaw clamped. All friendly apart from the nasty little secret he’s keeping.
“Had to put him out in the garden. He’s still got it. I think he’s licking it. Still, keeps him off his balls for a while.”
Leonard is expected to reveal the mystery item within his mouth later today, when he vomits a large chewed cigar butt onto a rug.
