Cinema has taught us that when kids are home alone, robbers inevitably will show up only to be foiled by childish contraptions and traps. For dogs on the other hand, their version of being left unattended involves less hijinks and, uh, just a lot of jumping around.
In the video below, a camera captures what really happens when pets are left alone. Jumping all over the couches, the only thing these dogs accomplish are moving the furniture and making a mess. Maybe Macaulay Culkin can play the robber in the next installment of Home Alone: Pet Edition. It might sell better.
