Puppers get themselves into all sorts of trouble, but sometimes it's what they don't do that causes the biggest headaches for their humans.
In a story of unexpected interspecies cooperation, and no small amount of bribery, Twitter user @JesseNeon shared the epic tale of his dog's failure to protect his garbage from bears.
The bear has figured out that Jesse's dog, Brickleberry, can be convinced to look, er...bork the other way if he's fairly compensated.
Jesse took to Twitter to share the story of his dog's betrayal with the world.
He also gave some background on his furry friend.
People were quick to jump to Brick's defense.
Some insisted he was just being gracious.
Brick's friend is smarter than your av-er-age bear.
People really got a kick out of the idea of Brickleberry bartering with the bear.
Don't forget your pic-a-nic basket!
It seems like dogs can make friends with anyone, including bears.
Let's hope that their budding friendship/business relationship doesn't make life any harder for Jesse. Cleaning up garbage off of the porch is never fun.
