Roberts, 26, said: ‘We have a security camera in the house so I can see what the dogs do during the day.
‘I had a weird feeling to check the camera and I saw Lexi pulling it down by the light string.
‘My initial reaction was to make sure she was okay but when I kept watching the video I couldn’t help but laugh, not only because of Lexi but because Dexter knew it was a bad idea and ran away before it fell!
‘They are the sweetest dogs you will ever meet but they are definitely mischievous. Dexter grew out of his “bad” stage but Lexi has just begun.’
The couple described their dogs as ‘mischievous’ but said Dexter was the calmer of the pair
Earlier this month, Toffee the Cockapoo caused chaos as her owner tried to wrap up Christmas presents on her bed.
The video, which was posted on TikTok by Mia Constantinou from Dervock in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, shows the puppy getting tangled in sticky tape, nipping at a parcel and trying to steal the roll of tape.
But afterwards she said could only able to wrap one present before giving up because of the constant interference from her new 12-week-old cockapoo, Toffee.
Mia said: ‘I found it hilarious how difficult it was to do small things whilst trying to keep her occupied. It was extremely difficult!’
Mia added that preparing for the festive season with a small dog is ‘a full time job’.
