“Maddie… Did you steal my apple?” a woman asks a Golden Retriever, who clearly has an apple in her mouth. Maddie doesn’t answer.
A video on Rumble posted by Jnt436 shows the dog holding an apple in her mouth while her owner gently interrogates her for her crime. Under questioning, the dog maintains her innocence by not saying a word and arching alternate eyebrows.
“Can I have it back?” the owner asks. She then gives Maddie an out, a way for Maddie to say this was a huge misunderstanding.
“It’s not a ball; it’s an apple,” the owner says.
But Maddie knows this all too well. It’s what she’s been after all along.
You can see that when eventually the owner gives in and lets Maddie eat the apple, which she does happily, wagging her tail and chomping quickly, beating the system.
