Yes, you guessed it, it was Oscar!!!
Not, unfortunately, the fruit variety, oh no, nothing so straight forward for my beagle boy. The blackberry Oscar chose to "eat" was the drastically more expensive type of blackberry, the blackberry bold 9700 to be exact, yes, a mobile phone! My youngest daughters new phone of only five weeks. She had come home from work and went straight into the kitchen to greet Ruby and Oscar, she'd made a big fuss of them and even treated them to a couple of biscuits each before deciding to take her jacket and bag upstairs and visit the loo. For some unfathomable reason she chose to leave her mobile on the kitchen table (we know well in our house that you can't leave anything lying on the table - both dogs know we eat at the table and therefore things on the table are good to eat!!!???).
However, Samantha did leave her phone there! When she returned Oscar had the whole thing in his jaws and was merrily chomping away. Floods of tears later and a phone call to the insurance company and calm returned to the household, though by the look on Oscar's face I think the telling off Samantha gave him had the desired affect...........
Oscar did not suffer thank goodness (other than a very loud telling off lol) and the insurance company are sending a new phone as replacement. Life is never boring with a beagle!!!
