UT shoplifting dog fesses up

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - We now know who pulled off a canine caper that generated buzz around the world. The "shoplifting dog" comes forward and fesses up to the crime.

Just before Christmas, store surveillance video captured a mysterious dog making a clean getaway with a stolen rawhide bone.

One family suspected their dog, Akira, was the pooch to blame and brought her back to the store.

When they turned her loose, she followed her nose, straight to the same aisle, and the same rawhide bones.

Reporter asked the dog's owner, "What do you think? Are you proud? Or are you feeling guilty?"

Owner replied, "Ha-ha, yeah, a little bit of both - definitely."

Here's the incredible part of the story: To get to the store, Akira must've walked nearly six miles, crossing two freeways. That's a round trip of nearly 12 miles!
