Dog Steals Cherries Off Counter, Owners Learn A Lesson Hopefully (VIDEO)

Note: While this is adorable, NEVER let your dog get into your cherries*.

Maybe it's because we still have such fond memories of the first time we saw that other famous thief Maymo getting his jaws around a whole cabbage, but this dog's persistence at nabbing some cherries off the counter made us giggle. Fortunately, according to the YouTube description, Ida here was only playing with the fruit.

*Cherry pits have trace amounts of cyanide, and your dog, smart as he/she may be, doesn't know to pit a cherry before eating it.

Hopefully, her owners learned their lesson and starting keeping the cherries safely out of reach.
