Monday Mischief – Rule No. 8

This week’s rule comes from my good pal Daisy….

Daisy is like a lot of you, she’s really good at Mischief – last week she decided to come clean about her faking!!  Ok, more like her Mum busted her :)

As she suggested, I thought we needed to have it in my Mischief Masterclass – tab dah

Introducing Rule No. 8 (especially for Daisy) – THE FAKER !!

Now, this rule is all about TIMING – if you get it perfect, you’ll get away with it – Unfortunately, Daisy had a few issues with the timing – so she got busted!!  Doh!!

Just like Daisy, I've been known to fake it!! When I think Mum's gonna try to get a knot out of my coat- yep, I've squealed too soon too!! :)

Oh, but it doesn’t end there….. :)

Sometimes I'll tap to go out - just to see if they're paying attention - I don't really want to go out, so as soon as I'm out I then tap to come back in - WARNING - this can backfire and you can get left out in the cold!! :(

And finally……

I've been known to pretend to be asleep,..... Tee Hee

This is especially useful when they want to take you out in the cold late at night to go potty, just because they’re finally ready to go to bed – I think you might enjoy this little clip.  See, I was even Mischievous way back then (even as a little puppy)….. Tee Hee

  1. OH My Gosh Snoopy old buddy, that is the best fake sleep I have ever seen. My Vickie and I are still lauging at the video. You have it down pat, except for the timing…..Just a few seconds earlier and they might have been convinced.

    I got in trouble for food stealing today so that is my Mischeif Monday. Not good enough for a full post, but it did make my Vickie more commited in training me to “Wait”..

    Dang it all, If I just had waited a few seconds more she wouldn’t have seen it, then I wouldn’t be in trouble.

    • Hey Bert,

      You got into trouble for stealing food? Doesn’t your Vickie remember that you need a story for Monday Mischief?! Huh? Where’s the fun in waiting, you’re gonna get in anyway, right?! Tee Hee – See what I mean about how important timing is? :)

      Glad my video made you laugh – I was laughing too while I was pretending to be asleep!! :)

      Have fun Dude and keep up the great work (of course I’m talking about Mischief! :) ),

      Snoops :)

  2. Very clever, Snoopy! Tehe :). Mami de Gund will jump onto my lap just as I want to get up; of course, I then need to nap another 1/2 hour for her :). You’re one mischievous fellow!

  3. Oh Snoopy, you had us hysterical laughing over here! What a great video! Also, I like the way you use your coat as a way to hide your collar when they want to take you out after you’ve gotten all cozy for the night – good move! I’m almost always ready to go out, even if it means waking up from a peaceful sleep….except when it’s really hot out, then I’m not at all interested in going out and actually prefer to hold it until the sun goes down. It makes my mom worry – she’s always checking to make sure I didn’t have any accidents, but hey, I’m all grown up now! :)

    Thanks for all the mentions! :D

    • Hey Daisy,

      So happy I could make you laugh buddy!! – Yep, I was hoping Mum wouldn’t actually be able to get my lead on cos I was so cozy – I sure wasn’t gonna help her!! Tee Hee

      Yeah my Mum and Dad are more relaxed now about potty stuff cos I can hold on forever too!! But, yep, I still have to go out before bedtime – oh well…. :)

      Hope you’re having a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  4. Always have the best plan don’t ya Snoop? You are the king of mischief, I’m pretty sure.

  5. Snoopy! You are just TOO much!!! I bet you hated to be drug out to go potty!! Timing is everything.

    Doggy Kisses,

  6. Ha-Ha! Snoopy you and Leroy would make a great pair! He loves to act like he is sleeping when it’s time to go out for the last time at night!!

    we love your cleverness, BOL

  8. That is a good one but Chester and Gretel aren’t really fakers…unless you could them trying to convince me that they are starving all of the time :)

  9. Woof! Woof! Golden LAUGHS! Happy Monday Mischief … joining your HOP today. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  10. Very cute! What a little stinker.

  11. Oh Snoopy, you are the best. We do faking too, but I just loved the clip of you refusing to move. Our problem with faking is that our Mistress gets her own back. She shakes the biscuit box to get us to come in and then sometimes doesn’t give us a biscuit. She gives us a biscuit often enough that we always hope, but sometimes she thinks we’ve already had enough biscuits so just fools us.

    Your dear friend, Alfie

    • Hey Alfie Dog,

      You mean your Mum FAKES it with the biscuit box?! That’s so sneaky!! :)

      My Mum has a new night time tactic too, now I get a treat (Yep, a Dentastix – woohoo) when they say goodnight, so I’m way more keen to get potty over with than I used to be, cos I’m so excited to get my treat! :)

      Btw, how can you ever have ‘enough’ biscuits, huh?! :)


      Snoops :)

  12. I’ve tried sleeping so hard they can’t wake me – but then they just LIFT me instead?! Do you have any advice? *Waggy tail*
    Alfie | Alfie’s Blog recently posted..Monday Mischief – The Dreaded Cone of ShameMy Profile

    • Hey Alfie,

      Lifting is cheating!! They can even lift you if you do the lead weight thing?! That would be my tactic!! :) Tee Hee

      Good luck buddy,

      Snoops :)

  13. BOL!! That video is priceless!!! That is the best fake sleep that I have ever seen! I must practice that!

  14. Snoopy you are the master faker!! I didn’t know if you were sleeping there or playing dead! LOL!
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  15. Haha Snoopy you are so clever. Thunder learned that trick and now Freighter is practicing that one too. I am not going to let him see this post for more pointers, okay?

    • Hey Browndawgs,

      I knew Freighter was gonna be a good Mischief Maker!! Oh, go on, show him my posts, he’ll get up to speed in no time!! Tee Hee

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  16. Oh Snoopy, you bad bad little puppy. No wonder your mom and dad loves you sooo much, you have this personality… the mischievous type.

    Lazy little cute little… rassum frassum ( have you heard the “Magnificent Muttley” from Cartoon Network?)

    You remind me of him. Here’s a video I picked up from Youtube. Check it out if you have time

  19. heheh… very clever to faking sleep or pretending not to hear them…. hmmm… I guess i need hours of practice to master the timing cuz my humans have ways and means to bust a pup faking xoxox Vanilla Bean
    p.s. i really like the masterclass series and put them into practice…
    Vanilla Bean recently posted..Monday Mischief: pups’ playMy Profile

    • Hey Vanilla Bean,

      I’m really glad you like the Masterclass series buddy!! :)

      Yep, beware of the humans, they’re pretty good at busting pups – we have to outsmart them!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  20. Snoopy my Mom and I are completely in love with this!! My Mom said that video was the funniest thing she has ever seen! BOL!!

    You sure were a good faker (actor!!) even back then!

    You are the BEST my friend!!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hi Dakota,

      Woohoo!!! So happy you enjoyed this video – I aim to please!! Tee Hee

      Oh yes, I’ve been practising my Mischief right from the get go!! No slacking for me….. :)

      Big wags for all buddy,

      Snoops :)

  21. Hey Snoopy,

    Mum really had a good laugh at your video! But she wishes she hadn’t shown me, cos now I know what I am going to do next time she tries to put me in the car!

    High five!


    • Hey Dexter,

      Glad to see you’re taking it all on board buddy!!

      I find most times the car is a good thing – just not when trips to the vets for shots are involved – ouch!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  22. Hi Y’all,

    Hey, they don’t even have to get as far as the leash and I’m so excited I’m jumping and barking! There are times at night when my Human wants to take me for a “last pee run” and I just go in my house (crate) and lay down. (Don’t you think “house” sounds so much nicer than “crate”?)

    Y’all come back now,

    • Hey Hawk,

      House definitely sounds better buddy!! My ‘house’ is in the garage now cos I didn’t like it – Tee Hee

      I love going out during the day, especially in the mornings when it’s time to go for a run – but when I’m dreamin’ – nah, not so much!! :)


      Snoops :)

  23. middle name!!

    Sounds like a fun bloggy hop, we grabbed your button and will join you next week!

    Chloe and Cecil too!

  24. You are a pretty good faker Snoopy, even when you were a puppy! I loved the video, it gave me a good chuckle!
    Barb recently posted..Queensland Floods Jan 2012 (Pictures/Videos)My Profile

  25. That was such a great video Snoopy!!!!! You are too funny :) Our pups like to pretend they need to go outside too– just so they can run and play!

    Have a wonderful week!

    • Hi Guys,

      Isn’t it fun to do Mischief?! Tee Hee

      Yep, it’s always hard for the humans to tell if you REALLY need to go out, so they let you out just in case!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  26. Oh my goshies, Snoopy!! You are simply adorableeee! I’ve done the same thing lots of times — sometimes it actually works! ;)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

    • Hey Bailey,

      It actually worked for you?! I’m so impressed!! Did you see how hard I tried?! And I STILL had to go out – doh!!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  27. That’s going to have me laughing for the rest of the day. :bol: You are such a faker! (Of course, if you want the polite spin on that, just call yourself an actor and they’ll be giving you awards in no time!)

    You’re still a regular little cutie but oh my word were you a cute little pup!

  28. Snoopy, you are the smartest. I’ve never thought of pretending to be asleep. Of course I love to go out, but sometimes I don’t want to come back in. Maybe I could pretend I’m asleep outside.
