9. Yes, I was thinking the same.

Dog language is a lot easier for me to understand than people language.

I won't quite say they are "open books." Smart dogs are quite capable of hiding their intent. For example, they'll notice food on the counter and ignore it. Then as soon as you leave the room for a minute they might grab it, wolf it down, and return to whatever they were doing before you left.

It's probably something they might get away with outdoors, "The crows took it!" but they don't seem to realize they will be the prime suspect if they are the only other animal in the kitchen.

We have one dog who likes to stash away chewy treats for later and another dog who is sneaky and utterly shameless about stealing them.
