It's A Mystery

Do I have a Sherlock Holmes, a Columbo, or even an Inspector Clouseau among my readers?
Ok so, short story long...(Do I ever tell a story any other way?)
The Blizzard of 2010 took quite a toll on the trees in our backyard.
We have all been getting quite the work out cleaning up the devastation.

Will and I were out back again today, moving branches. I did not bother locking up any of the dogs . We normally give Pepsi and Hero run of the house, and as I have mentioned Daisy does NOT leave the family room by her own volition.
When we came back in the house, Pepsi and Hero were on the living room sofa (as usual), and Daisy was in her crate- BUT so was this....
No, not the green lambie -Look closer

Doug's work glove. I know it was by the front door when I went out. I also know that it probably smells amazing with all that cedar sap. But would Hero or Pepsi have brought the glove into Daisy's crate, (especially with her in it)? Unlikely.
Hero is NOT a big chewer, Pepsi is crate-phobic and NOT into sharing.
But I consider it just as unlikely that Daisy walked calmly all the way to the front door and back and even picked something up along the way.
So tell me, what's your verdict?

It had to be done by a marauding cat or squirrel! They're both crafty devils!

The answer is was a gremlin. You know, the same guys who steal socks from the dryer leaving you with only un-mated pairs.

PS My vword is "licat" suggesting that maybe houndstooth has the correct culprit.

It was an evil conniving scheming squirrel! What else?
(Oh, that houndstooth beat me to it!)

I don't think it's a big deal. I think it just means your house is haunted...
