My first thought was "they're bunking off school".
on closer inspection, not alone were they bunking off school, they were up to all kinds of shenanigans too!! Now I wonder do their mothers know what they're up to?
And they were caught in the act. Yes, there are 5 dogs in the picture below!
I just about got these pics on time, though (and even pulled in to take them!) cos 2 seconds after I took the last one, two ladies came down the street and reclaimed two of the dogs, with a strong reprimand.
Well, a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do!
