Monday Mischief Master Class – Rule No. 9

Sometimes you just have to take a stand on certain things – this was one of those times.

There was no way I was gonna let Mum use those commands on me, bribe me, or any of those other tricks she has up her sleeve – Nope, I was gonna fluff myself up as BIG as I could and be all assertive…..

Introducing –


It's time to fight for what I believe in!! Sorry Mum, but I'm staking my claim on the sofa, right here and right now!! Ok, I'll make one concession, I could possibly squidge over a little and let you snuggle up with me!! Tee Hee


I think she got the message (even though she did make me get down), but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day, I’m definitely moving the needle forward on operation ‘Get on the Sofa’ :)

I hope all you fellow Mischief Makers had a fun week out there :)

  4. Way to take a stand Snoopy! We can stand tall too, but as soon as Mom gives us that “look” we tend to shrink!

  5. Hey Snoopy, Jet here. I support your efforts to train your Mom. Stay strong, man.

  6. I’m working on getting on the couch too. The only problem is I always get in trouble if I get caught so I have to quick get off as soon as I hear someone coming.

    • Hi Bongo,

      Yep, this challenge seems to be full of problems – you’re wise, it’s not usually best to get caught!! But hey, if you do, it’s worth taking a stand, you’ve got nothing to lose, right?! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  7. this i hav to learn cuz right now i’m wishing i’m a big dog so my humans couldn’t physically remove me from the couch… -Vanilla Bean
    Vanilla Bean recently posted..Monday Mischief: the usual suspectsMy Profile

    • Hey Vanilla Bean

      Don’t let your size be an issue buddy – I’m only 50lbs but I can make Mum think I’m way bigger and if she still tries to move me, I can do the lead weight thing, have you tried that?

      Good luck and keep up the good work,

      Snoops :)

  8. I do this, Snoopy! I’m just about as tall as my hu-sister, Taylor when I stand up — and I’m very pushy, too! I’d say that’s staying firm! haha

    Woofs & hugs, <3

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

  9. Woof! Woof! I Like it … Golden Thanks I will give it a try. Happy Monday Mischief Day. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
    SUGAR recently posted..Monday Mischief: I Had A Golden FUNMy Profile

    • Hi Sugar,

      Good luck with this buddy – though you’re pretty big to start with, can’t imagine your Mum tries bossing you about!! :)

      Big Wags,

      Snoops :)

  10. Nicely done, Snoopy! Couch and doghouse will soon be synonyms :)

  11. Great job at standing firm!!!! BOL!!! Maybe next time it will work!

    Higgins recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  12. Stand your ground Snoopy! Soon that sofa will be yours!

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Thanks so much for your encouragement and support, sometimes it can be tough, but I’m gonna soldier on with my mission!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  13. What a beautiful picture of you Snoopy! I think that couch was made for you to lay on! LOL!
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  14. You look so big and tall in that picture. No wonder your Mamma backed down :)
    Jessica @ YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..Deciding to Feed Grain-freeMy Profile

    • Hey Jessica,

      I was amazed at how Big I could fluff myself up!! See, you don’t have to be a Big Dog, to act like a Big Dog!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  15. You tell them, at least you can be the boss in your own mind, right Snoop?
    Roxy recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  16. Snoopy my friend, stand your ground! you should be allowed on that sofa as often as you like! That’s all I gotta say about it!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota
    caren gittleman recently posted..Valentine’s Day Is Coming! Need Gifts For Dog Lovers?My Profile

    • Hey Dakota,

      I told my Mum what you said, she’s still holding out!! Doh!! I’m gonna stand my ground too though – let battle commence!! Tee Hee

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  17. You DO have a determined look on your face, Snoopy. Keep up the good work!
    Sage recently posted..Not So Muddy MondayMy Profile

  18. Well, you share the name of the world’s second most famous beagle, and there is no dog on earth more adamant and demanding than a beagle– so I will share with you the beagle way. If anyone tries to move you off your rightful throne, howl in their face. Best of luck to you.
    Seamus (the famous. Beagle, of course.)
    Teresa and Seamus recently posted..It’s Been So LongMy Profile

    • Haha Teresa and Seamus,

      I like your style – I haven’t tried the howling approach, maybe I need to up my game? Thanks for the tip! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  19. Oh Snoopy…Fluffy rules! Always make room for your special human on their sofa…it’s worth it!

    • Hi there,

      Ok, sounds like pretty fair advice and I did offer, if a little reluctantly, but Mum’s so strict it didn’t seem to matter – doh!!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  20. I love this dog! getting the sofa for his place, intelligent! Thank you for sharing some of the souvenirs from Pinky’s Cp…

    • Hi There,

      Well, the sofa looks to be like the ultimate comfy spot in the house, so I’m on a mission to claim it, it’s kind of a work in progress!! :)


      Snoops :)

  21. Snoopy, you and Saydee both know where the most comfy spot in the house is :) Nice work!!
    Julie recently posted..I feel the same way!My Profile

    • Hi Julie,

      And doesn’t it look SOOO comfy, I sit and look at it every day, just longing for the day when Mum and Dad give up and let me loll all over it…. sigh!! :)


      Snoops :)

  22. Stand your ground, Snoops! We are all behind your back… By the way, what was your mom’s treats for you? Was there any?

    Take the treat… Take the treat.

    Huggies and Cheese,

    haopee recently posted..More Airtime for Brother Dog (BD)My Profile

    • Hi Haopee,

      Thanks for your support! :) Actually she didn’t SHOW me the treat, just mentioned it, I suspect it was a Carrot, heck, I can get a Carrot anytime!! Tee Hee

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  23. You’ve got the right approach, Snoopy! I broke ‘em down when I was less than a year old – they wanted a lap dog to cuddle with, but only when they were on the couch too….no way! Once you bring me up there, it’s mine too! My family doesn’t give up on training much, but they did give up on this and let me have full reign over the couch, even when they’re not in the room. Keep trying, buddy, it’ll work! :)
    Daisy recently posted..Oops He Did It Again….My Profile

    • Hey Daisy,

      You’re such a great example in Couch Management – you give me the strength to continue my battle!! :)

      Have a fun day buddy,

      Snoops :)

  24. You go, Snoopy!! That looks like a great high soft place!!!

    Doggy Kisses,
    Tanner & Beth recently posted..SaturdayMy Profile

  25. I love your motto, Snoopy! Stick with it, and I’m sure you’ll have your spot in no time!

  28. Stand firm buddy! My couch is my castle, ‘tho I do give mom enough room to sit so she can snuggle!
    Prudence recently posted..Another Talented Tuesday!My Profile

    • Hi Prudence,

      I love your attitude – your very own castle – how cool – your Mum sure is lucky to be allowed to share it with you!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,
      Snoops :)
