Who wouldn’t LOL at Teddy when he freezes in his tracks when he sees his owner catching him with a slider shoe in his mouth? His attempt at pretending to be invisible while stealing a glance at his owner is really hilarious.
The text overlay on the video reads: “When you didn’t realize Mum was in the room and would catch you red-handed.” And the caption “Up to no good as usual”, makes everything even funnier.
One user could not help but write: “The side eye. Omg I’m crying,” followed by another who said, “If I don’t move she won’t see me.”
Teddy really is a comedian.

Dogs’ love for shoe spring from when they were still puppies who explore with their mouths according to the website Pet Helpful. It is similar to what human babies go through, the oral phase where everything is tested through the mouth.
Dogs play or chew with shoes when they are stressed or bored and even when they have separation anxiety according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). This happens when they are left alone which can be accompanied by restlessness, pacing, whining, barking, urination, and defecation.
The ASPCA suggests “Dog proof your house” by hiding valuable objects, providing edible chew toys and snacks and spraying nasty-tasting dog deterrents to tempting objects to stop them from chewing or playing with the items.
They caution against scolding the dog for chewing as it only increases their stress and anxiety leading to chewing.
But as for Teddy, there is no chance of denying anything, the evidence is as obvious as the nose on your face. You’re guilty as charged, Teddy!
