Treat Thieving Leonberger Steals the Show at Westminster

The 140th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is generally a purebred, highbrow, no jokes affair. But this leonberger had ideas that didn't center around rigid competition as he went on his run around the show circle. The dog decided to go for the treats in his trainer's pocket, and why not? It was obvious that the handler had other, more important things on his mind that were distracting him. It seemed like the perfect moment for a bit of treat snatching.

Alas, no treats were to be had, nor did he win any awards at the show. But the move made this canine the darling of just about everyone watching. Dubbed the "leonburglar" on social media, he and his antics got some fond responses on platforms such as Twitter, as seen below. Via Mashable
