But last Wednesday, after clambering onto the work top the rowdy pup managed to get her paws on a small knife - which she wasn't keen to let drop out of her mouth, Denver 7 reported.
In an attempt to get her to put down the knife, Celinda placed treats on the ground - only for the pooch to reach over her arm, stabbing Celinda as she plunged for the treats.

The wound, which was approximately four inches long, required stitches - but staff at Platte Valley Medical Center were not willing to believe Celinda's extraordinary tale, and police were sent to the family home, which "looked like a blood bath", to investigate a possible domestic violence case.
Fortunately, Celinda' husband had been out renewing his driving licence when the drama unfolded - leaving Mia as the only suspect.

Celinda told Denver 7: "[Mia] gets on the counter with her long legs, or the table, she just grabs whatever... water bottles, whatever there is available to grab.
She added: "I've got to put my knives up higher."
