Adam Montiel’s kitchen needs some serious dog-proofing.
The San Luis Obispo, Calif., radio host wondered just how Allie, his 12-year-old Yellow Lab, was managing to open the refrigerator and freezer doors, and to pull food out onto the floor.
So he put a GoPro camera in his kitchen, which caught the old girl in action.
“My girlfriend taught Allie to open a drawer where Allie’s toys were,” he says in the description of the video, which is going viral on YouTube. “We didn’t even think that the freezer itself is a big giant drawer…with food! But how she opened the doors with her mouth, and at the hinges, was incredible to us.”
Montiel insists they are not bad pet parents. “Yes we feed her, she is a very smart and loving soul, and we love her more than anything,” he says.
But just to make sure Allie doesn’t eat anything a dog shouldn’t, hopefully Montiel will invest in a couple of latches and locks. (And put the trash can away, too.)
Here’s proof that an old dog can even teach herself new tricks.
