The latter is most certainly true for Allie, a 12-year-old yellow Labrador retriever who was busted by her family for raiding the kitchen when they're not home.
San Luis Obispo, California, radio personality Adam Montiel said he noticed his dog was getting into the fridge and freezer. "We couldn't figure out how she was doing it, so I hooked up a GoPro to find out," he writes on YouTube.

A New Mexico woman's missing kitten has been located in Maine, although exactly how the feline made the 2,300-mile trip remains a mystery.
The female kitten, named Spice, was turned in to the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook earlier this month by a man who found her inside a duffel bag outside a Portland thrift store.
Spice's owner was tracked though an implanted microchip to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Jennifer Brown of the Animal Refuge League tells the Portland Press Herald she talked to the owner, who said Spice bolted on Halloween when she opened her door for trick-or-treaters.

But the groundhog sneaked through another opening – and McGrath ended up running to the front door.
