Little Girl Cleverly Defends Dog After Mother Finds Chewed-Up Pillow


Dogs are notorious for getting themselves into trouble. Our little furbabies sometimes can’t help themselves, especially when they are left at home alone.

And when we confront them after they make whatever mess they have made, they can’t help but look guilty.

Jennifer Bannon’s dogs, for example, could not hide the fact that they had completely trashed their owner’s kitchen.

Paper plates with chewed-out holes, trash and debris were scattered all over the kitchen floor and dragged into the nearby room as well.

Greg Bannon, Jennifer’s husband, assessed the situation and called the three pups — Maggie, Ellie, and Ace — into the kitchen to lecture them.

These three dogs really needed a dog lawyer to talk themselves out of the situation, like this little girl named Sierra.

Now, Sierra’s puppy may have gotten himself into trouble. A large pillow had been ripped apart, but Sierra is firm that her dog defendant did not do it.

“Did you see him do it?” Sierra asked her mom who had accused her four-legged pal of chewing up the pillow.

When her mom responded in the negative, Sierra asked, “How could you know it’s him?”

“Who else would have done it?” her mom replied. “Do you eat pillows?”

Sierra then suggested that birds or a squirrel could have committed the crime.


“You are so lucky you have an attorney,” the mom told the dog before ushering Sierra off to school.

It looks like the dog got away with it this time. Sierra might make a good animal attorney someday!
