Cockapoo falls through hedge in hunt for slice of 'manky' burnt toast

Mission Im-paw-ssible! Mischievous cockapoo is caught on CCTV falling through a hedge after she climbs up to get slice of ‘manky’ toast off shed roof

  • Lola, aged four, repeatedly falls through hedge at her home in Chelmsford, Essex
  • Owner Justine Atterbury, 48, arrived home to find the garden feature damaged
  • She initially blamed her ‘clumsy’ dalmatian before seeing ‘hilarious’ CCTV video 

A cheeky cockapoo has been captured falling through a hedge while trying to reach a slice of burnt toast. 

CCTV footage shows the moment little Lola, aged four, attempts to use the 5ft hedge to climb onto the garden shed after sniffing out the piece of bread, which had somehow ended up on its roof.    

Shocked owner Justine Atterbury, 48, came home to find the hedge badly damaged and initially blamed her ‘clumsy’ Dalmatian Ruby, aged 13.

But when she watched the hilarious CCTV back, she saw the mystery culprit was Lola and said she couldn’t stop laughing as she watched her clamber through the hedge.

The mother-of-two said she wasn’t surprised supper sniffer Lola could smell the ‘manky’ bit of burnt toast – but was shocked by the lengths she went to get it.

Ms Atterbury, from Chelmsford, Essex, said: ‘We’ve got a big hedge in the garden and came home on Monday (June 28) night and saw it had almost been pushed apart.

‘So we blamed it on our Dalmatian Ruby, as she is a clumsy thing.

‘Then when I looked at CCTV, I saw it wasn’t Ruby, but was in fact Lola, our cockapoo.

‘She managed to sniff a bit of toast that was sitting on the top of our shed, so she launched herself through our hedge to try and climb up to the toast.

‘She disappears at one point as the hedge gives way.

‘She didn’t get toast, but we solved the mystery of the hedge.


Mutts for toast: Four-year-old cockapoo Lola was captured on CCTV as she clambered through a hedge in pursuit of a burnt piece of toast, which her owner says is one of her favourite things to sniff out

‘It also explains why when she came in from the garden one night she was absolutely filthy.

‘I don’t know where the toast came from, probably my daughter who burnt it and threw it there.’

She added: ‘I just couldn’t stop laughing, I was amazed that she has actually done it.

‘I wasn’t surprised that she smelt the toast, but I was surprised she was so desperate for this bit of manky toast.

‘She loves toast though, she notices when any is left in the kitchen and she sniffs in the air.

‘Lola is exceedingly cheeky and has a really good sense of smell.

‘She does things that other dogs don’t think of doing’.
