Owner returns home to find her delighted dog playing in a sea of feathers after escaping his cage and destroying her new pillows

Daily Mail logo Daily Mail 4/16/2018 Danny Hussain

This is the hilarious moment a dog owner found her beloved pet swimming in a sea of feathers after he had stumbled upon a set of pillows. 

The charming video shows the dog's owner, Mary Elizabeth Hatch, 27, following a trail of white feathers before coming across Henry and the pillows at her home in Kentucky. 

Henry the Rhodesian ridgeback had managed to escape from his crate and break into his owner's collection of brand new feathery pillows. 

Henry, one and a half years old, looks absolutely delighted with the mess he's created as he plays happily in the pile of feathers.

His owner finds the dog after following a trail of the white feathers she notices after returning home. 

Also in the video are two other dogs who look to be enjoying the feathery wonderland too.

The cheeky dog's owner, who can be seen playfully throwing feathers in her pet's face, admits she found the scene too cute to be angry with Henry. 

Mary, an Emergency Medicine resident intern, said: 'I came home from work and Henry, Serrano, and Rosebug, who is not featured in the video because she's a good girl and not a pillow eater, met me at the front door. Henry is our dog. The other three belong to my family.

'It was kind of weird because Serrano had feathers stuck in her collar - that struck me first.

'What struck me second was that Henry was out of his crate. We always crate Henry and Maisie when we're gone because they're a bit younger and prone to mischief.

'I started seeing these little tufts of feathers in the living room so I followed the trail back to the bedroom and found the feathers. Henry happily led the way, wagging his tail and looking real proud of himself.

'The feathers were like three inches deep. It was nuts.'

She also said that she was relieved Henry hadn't hurt himself after escaping the crate and described the dog as being 'super cute'.

She confessed that they found the entire episode hilarious and Henry escaped punishment for the mess he made.

She said 'Turns out, Henry had busted out of his crate and torn up a single feather pillow. He was quite chuffed with himself and happily started rolling around and showing off his work. No shame. No regret. I tried to shame him with the classic ''Did you do this?'' but he didn't care. 

'Just pure happiness and showing off. Maisie joined in while Serrano watched. I kept half-heartedly tried to get Henry up out of the mess, but he was so happy and I couldn't really be angry with him.

'The mess was impressive, but he was super cute and I was glad he didn't get hurt while breaking out of the crate. You hear these horror stories about dogs getting stuck or cut or strangled, you know?

'So we had a good laugh. I decided to just close the door and decompress (have a glass of wine) with Henry before cleaning up the feathers. It took maybe two hours to get them all up? Henry and Maisie stayed in the feather pile while I was cleaning and we just kind of played around.'

The medic also admitted that while they had fun, she realised that Henry couldn't be trusted around pillows and that she had locked the remaining ones away.  

'It's kind of funny, we live in Kentucky and nearest Ikea is quite a drive. My mom and her hen friends had road tripped to Ikea this past weekend and she bought like ten feather pillows.

'She's been going on for days about how great she's been sleeping on her new pillows and that we should try them. The pillow survived four days with Henry.

'We've now had to put the new pillows in storage until Henry grows up a little more.'
