It all sounds very confusing, I know. But it’s one hell of a tale, let me assure you.
Keep scrolling for the full story, and to find out just how this mischevious little pooch managed to pull off such an accomplishment.
This duo could perhaps be the most mischevious pair of pugs in the world.
The pair were quick to become inseparable, and Elphie wasted no time in stepping into her “big sister boots”.
And, in typical big sister fashion, she knew how to get him into trouble, too.
While their owner, Andrew Nechetsky was out, Elise would sneakily release her little brother from the crate that he would be locked in as a precautionary measure.
“I leave for work before my wife does, and she would always put him in the crate as he was only a puppy,” Nechetsky told The Dodo.
As not to pester him while he was locked in his crate.
“We would put a gate in between the kitchen and the hallway so Elphie wouldn’t bother him while we were gone.”
Nechetsky would find Sizzle roaming around the house, free from his crate.
But they were quick to realize that Elphie was the culprit behind Sizzle’s escapes.
And had somehow figured out how to unlock the crate and release her brother.
“We learned that she figured out how to climb over the gate,” Nechetsky said, “and she would then let him out of the crate.”
Because what was the point if his big sister would just bust him out anyway?
But then, there was a major plot twist.
A couple of weeks into their new arrangement, Nechetsky arrived home to a new mystery.
Yes, the very crate that she had once busted him out from.
I have so many questions.
A dog can quite easily let itself into a cage, right?
And Elphie was quite firmly locked inside the crate upon Nechestsky’s arrival home.
“I started coming home from work and I’d open the front door and hear her crying. I walk into the kitchen and see her locked in the crate,” Nechetsky explained.
“I honestly couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out how she got in there.”
And began to secretly film the pair when they thought they were alone.
Because Sizzle was now locking his big sister up in his cage, and he had the initiative to use her favorite toy as bait.
What a bad, but very clever boy, Sizzle!
“I see him open the crate, then he walks away and grabs a little pig toy and he puts it in the crate,” Nechetsky said. “He walked away and waited, she went looking for her pig, saw it in the crate, walked in and sat next to it.”
“Then he closed the door and used his mouth to latch it shut. It blew my freakin’ mind.”
Sizzle went on to re-offend by repeatedly locking up his sister.
And, when Nechetsky showed his wife a video of Sizzle’s trickery later that day, they decided to get rid of the crate once and for all.
