Monday Mischief Master Class – Rule No. 3

Hi there Mischief Makers – ready for some more advice from my Master Class?

Ok, here goes –


Unfortunately this is only working with Mum so far, but still it’s a good start!

Yep, I really am on THE BED!! Tee Hee - Let me tell you, it's pretty comfy!


I’m even including a short demonstration video today to show you the technique – Enjoy!

  1. oh oh….you must’ve seen me in the humans’ bed…it IS a warm and cuddly place!

    i like your #3 rule….and i really liked your mom sighing at the end of the video. #3 definitely worked on mom.

    • Hey Scrappy,

      Tee Hee – the humans’ bed is well worth the effort, hey buddy?! :)

      I always listen out for that sigh from Mum – it’s code for ‘you win Snoopy!’ – right?! :)

      Wags to you,

      Snoops :)

  2. Well clearly, you couldn’t hear her through all that hair! haha

    Very good tactic. I’ll make sure not to tell Rugby about it. :-p
    Sam recently posted..AnticipationMy Profile

    • Haha Sam,

      You got it – I couldn’t hear her properly – Tee Hee

      Oh, go on, tell Rugby, I’m sure he’d like to try this one out! :)


      Snoops :)

  3. OMG…you wouldn’t believe Chester. That 12 lb dog weighs like 100 if he doesn’t want to be moved! Ha, ha. I can only imagine how much you “weigh” when in lead weight mode :)

    • Hi Jessica,

      Well I’m just under 50lbs normally, but with the added ‘lead’ Mum sure can’t budge me unless I wanna budge!! :)

      I’m happy to hear that Chester is good at this little trick too – way to go buddy! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  4. Bwahahahaha!! I suspect it’s just a mater of time before you have your very own pillow!
    Vicky recently posted..Shift workMy Profile

    • Yay Vicky,

      My very own pillow sounds like a great idea, hold on make that a GREAT idea!! Tee Hee – I think I’d even like it embroidered, I’m gonna tell Mum – hmmmmm – wonder if I’m pushing my luck a little?! :)

      Hey, by the way, we saw 2, yes 2 Dogs that looked like Darby yesterday, but Mum was too slow to get a picture of them – doh!! :)

      Big wags to Darby and the Cats,

      Snoops :)

  5. Bol! Snoopy, you are so good at this!

    Great Masterclass! :D

    Luna recently posted..Monday Morning News!My Profile

    • Ah Thanks Luna,

      I think it’s really important to share my knowledge with all the other Mischief Makers out there – gotta make our humans chuckle, right?!

      Wags to you,

      Snoops :)

  6. Oh Snoopy Dude,
    You constantly amaze me with all your hints on how to get your way. Oh they way you acted like dead weight so she couldn’t pull you off, or the innocent look in your eyes when she pulled your hair aside.

    You are totally the best dog to teach this coursel

    Can’t wait for #4.

    • Hey Bert,

      Sometimes I amaze myself with with Mischief too! Tee Hee – It’s actually quiet easy with a little practice…… :) Glad you noticed ‘the look’ – I always have to have it ready as I never know when Mum is gonna move my hair aside….. :)

      Glad you’re enjoying my course buddy,

      Snoops :)

  7. LOL! I can hardly see you in there Snoopy! You blend right in:)))
    Selective hearing seems to work very well in our house!!

    • Hi Jen,

      I guess I didn’t quite blend in well enough though as Mum spotted me – I think they should change the colour of the bedding! Tee Hee

      Selective hearing definitely is one trick we should never forget – works wonders, especially if combined with Rule No. 1 :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. For the Love of My Dogs says:

    Hello snoopy! Looks like you are having a fabulous time sinking into that fluffy bed!! You’re just too darn adorable :)
    For the Love of My Dogs recently posted..Pups in MarylandMy Profile

    • Hi there,

      Well, I WAS having a fabulous time sinking into the fluffy bed UNTIL I got busted!! Doh!! Though, I have to admit sometimes it’s also fun to be busted!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  9. Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My pal you do us doggies PROUD!!!!! That bed looked soooooo comfy that I wouldn’t have moved either!!!

    Great job my friend!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hi Dakota,

      It makes me happy knowing that you’re proud of me buddy!! I think I’ll walk around for a while with my Mischief head held a little higher!! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  10. Your videos just always make me laugh. Thunder used to do the lead weight thing too. I suppose I should have been stern at the time, but he always made me laugh, just like Snoopy does!

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Yep, I can always get Mum to laugh too, why do you think she turned the video off?! Tee Hee

      Way to go Thunder, you’re a great Mischief Maker!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. I notice you are combining two techniques – the look of complete innocence and cuteness AND lead weight – this is indeed mischief masterclass! *taking notes*
    Alfie | Alfie’s Blog recently posted..Monday Mischief Pet Bloghop – The Whole World in My PawsMy Profile

    • Hey Alfie,

      You are so super smart!! I can tell you’re paying attention to my Masterclass – you are definitely gonna graduate – you may even be Top Dog!! I bet you’re Mum would be really happy with that!! Tee Hee

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  12. Adorable! Absolutely adorable! I am going to show my little Suki this picture.
    Helen Collins recently posted..Good Egg – UpdateMy Profile

  13. Haha you beat my mom to the same type of post, Snoopy! I use the same strategy – make myself as heavy as I can (which isn’t easy for a 15 pound pup!) when my family wants to move me from a comfy spot just so they or their friends can use it! Even when I got there first! I even try pressing my head down into the cushions so they can’t move me, but it never works. Ah well, it’s a dog’s life! LOL ;)
    Daisy recently posted..Daisy Investigates the French HornMy Profile

    • Woohoo Daisy,

      You sure are good at this Mischief stuff!! I can’t wait to see your post of you being all heavy – quite a task for such a little pup!!

      Keep up the great work,

      Your pal Snoops :)

  14. Hello Snoopy, my Mistress used to have a Bearded Collie the same colouring as you. He was called Sweep. I have to work very hard to look as cute. Still on the bright side I don’t have so much problem with burrs in my coat and I keep myself groomed most of the time. I can still do the shaking mud all over the wall thing though, you don’t need a long coat for that, although I’m sure it’s more effective. On the downside with your dead-weight thing, you don’t have as many pounds as me to do it with. Keep causing trouble and see you soon.

    I must go and round the puppies up.

    • Hi Alfie,

      Yep, I wouldn’t leave those puppies for very long – they look like natural Mischief Makers!! :)

      It’s cool that your Mum had a Beardie that looked like me, I love his name!! I’m guessing he used to sweep everything with his tail?

      Guess what though Alfie, even though I’m not too heavy, when I do the ‘lead-weight thing’ it puts me beyond the heaviness that Mum can lift!! Tee Hee – she’s rubbish when it comes to lifting anything – I’m sure glad I’ve worked this out!! :)

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  15. Too funny. I’m tickilish…so that wouldn’t work for me, but you have it down pat. Great video too! Ruff!

    • Hi Kootnai,

      Uh oh!! Being ticklish really must have it’s disadvantages, especially if the humans have worked it out buddy!! Glad you enjoyed my video :)

      Ruff back to you,

      Snoops :)

  16. I’ll have to try that trick the next time I get into trouble. Thanks for the tip, buddy.

    Doggy Kisses,

  17. Way to go Snoop. Acting like lead weight really does me no good though. I don’t weigh enough for that to matter. Oh well, I do have the cute and innocent look down though.
    Roxy recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hey Roxy,

      Don’t give up buddy, sometimes you just have to weigh enough for them not to be able to get you at the right angle to pick you up!! Tee Hee – Of course, if it’s Dad I think I need a better plan all together – but then, I always wait until he’s gone out before I jump on the bed :)

      Glad to see you’ve perfected the cute and innocent look – this will get you a very long way just on it’s own!!

      Good luck pal,

      Snoops :)

  18. LOL – aww Snoopy you’re such a cutie! I laughed out loud reading your rule #3! It really struck a chord with me because Bella has definitely mastered that rule. Loved your video!

    • Hi Leslie,

      I’m glad to hear Bella is great at Rule no. 3 – once you’ve mastered it, it’s lots of fun!! The hardest part is making sure you’re quick, as soon as you see them lunging towards you it’s time to go into ‘lead mode’! Tee Hee

      Wags to Bella,

      Snoops :)

  19. Oh we are soooooo aware of that rule!
    BZ Training recently posted..Spice of LifeMy Profile

  20. We love that rule!!! Just ignore them just like they ignore us when we need a nibble at the dinner table!
