Monday Mischief – and it’s all Mum’s Fault!

I’m normally Chief Mischief Maker in our house – a title I quite like!!

However, this week, Mum was up to Mischief and she really scared me!!

On Monday morning we had a problem with the electric coming into the house and lots of things weren’t working.

Mum decided that whilst the Men were trying to fix it outside, she needed a coffee.

She forgot the microwave wasn’t working – this is how she makes her coffee – Dad doesn’t understand why she likes instant coffee as he’s American – but I digress!!

She decided she could heat the water up in the coffee maker and then add her coffee – she went off after she’d started it and then all chaos broke out!!

HELP!!! Mum - there's something scary on the counter!!

I was really scared, I’m good with lots of strange noises, but this was one I hadn’t heard and really didn’t like!

When Mum realized why I was upset at the coffee machine, she couldn’t help laughing at me – I think she’s trying to learn how to be a Mischief Maker too?  

Do you have a scary coffee machine in your Kitchen too?

  1. Awww, Snoopy! New sounds get me a bit crazy, too!

    I was REALLLLLLY mischievous recently… but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out what I did. ;)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

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

    • Hey Bailey,

      I’m all intrigued to see what you’ve been up to buddy, you great Mischief Maker!!

      I thought I knew all the kitchen sounds until Mum sprung this one on me – it was weird and I’m pretty good with new stuff!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. You would make a great alarm dog. Good job!!

    We agree, when snorts and gurgles come out of the coffee machine it’s like a monster in th kitchen
    Benny & Lily

    • Hi Guys,

      That’s exactly what I thought it was – a BIG monster on the counter!! Have you got one too in your kitchen?

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  4. Hey Snoopy, Jet here. Dude, don’t blame you a bit… I’m quite a sensitive fellow in the noise department.
    Jet recently posted..Mom’s At It AgainMy Profile

    • Hi Jet,

      Normally I’m as cool as a cucumber, but this was a noise I really didn’t like – it was weird!!

      Have a fun day buddy,

      Snoops :)

  5. I’ve only lost my cool over a strange noise once…daddy brought home a duck call and I freaked out. I never barked once in my whole life until then, and when I did it was non-stop RARARARARARARARARAR! I hid under the bed, still barking, hair on end. I did that for a solid 20 minutes.

    Then I decided it was a really cool toy.

    • Tee Hee Rocco,

      I bet you scared them when you suddenly started barking?! :)

      Glad you and the Duck Call were able to become friends though buddy :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  6. I only bark when someone I don’t know comes to the door – but we don’t have a coffee maker. I might bark at that too.

    • Oh yeah Bongo,

      I do that one too – I like to be the guard dog!! Though I’m not really all that brave!! :)

      You’re so lucky you don’t have a coffee maker buddy……

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  7. To be honest, Mom’s espresso maker doesn’t really scare me. What scares me is how much espresso she drinks!

    Keep on wagging,

    • Hey Tootsie,

      I would get scared too, only if Mum doesn’t have coffee in the morning we don’t seem to go for a run and I love to run, so come on Mum, drink up!! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  8. We feel your pain Snoops. LOL. The moment Ginger heard you barking at the coffee machine, she went on barking as well.

    And now that I’ve finished viewing the video, she stops as well. By the way I left a comment on your older post. I think it was better if I’d left it here, but I accidentally pressed “Post Comment”

    Huggies and Cheese,

    • Hey Haopee,

      It’s cool to leave the comment on the other post, I still saw it :)

      Tee Hee, so Ginger was creating chaos cos I was barking, that’s funny, even when Mum plays that video here I come and see what’s going on, but I don’t bark at myself…. :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  9. hi Snoopy, that strange sound would freak me out, too (i yapped with ya while watching the video) Anyway, the gals said that a barking reaction is better than a flight response. xoxox Vanilla Bean

    • Tee Hee Vanilla Bean,

      I bet your Mum was happy with all that yapping in your house – ooops!! :)

      Oh that’s good that it’s a good reaction, actually the only time I hide is when Dad changes the trash bag, then it’s time to hide behind Mums leg….. :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  10. LOL Snoopy. You would get used to that sound very quickly in our house. In fact we have all learned the rule: “Don’t bother the female human until she has her coffee”. Tee hee.

    • Tee Hee Browndawgs,

      I’d have to put my head under a pillow until it was safe to come out I think in your house?! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. Hi snoopy..Your so cute and adorable..I remember my dog Cheska when I see your picture .

  12. Our coffee maker is known to make some pretty weird noises too! I did love seeing you bark in the video, it puts a voice to your sweet face! :)

  13. Poor Snoppy!! I hate new sounds!!

    • Hi Higgins,

      I’m usually ok with them, there have been lots on my Therapy visits, but this one threw me for a loop!! It was weird and in MY kitchen, I thought I knew all the sounds in the kitchen, apparently not!! :)

      Have a fun day buddy,

      Snoops :)

  14. Awwwwwe! Snoopy you are so cute! You made my Monday morning :)

    Have a great day!
    Dogs N Pawz recently posted..Does Your Dog Watch TV?My Profile

  15. LOL Snoopy your barks brought Daisy running over to the computer and she was barking back at you!! She’s never done that before – I think you were speaking her Doggy Dialect! :D

    We make coffee with a French press, and I buy whole beans and use an electric coffee grinder when I brew coffee. The coffee grinder is rather noisy and Daisy doesn’t appreciate that at all! So she definitely sympathizes with you! :)
    Daisy recently posted..Monday Mischief – An Act of RebellionMy Profile

    • Yay Daisy was talking to me!! That’s made my day :)

      Hmmmm, so Daisy’s Mum is a Mischief Maker too? Who would have guessed? Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  16. Great barking, Snoopy! We don’t have one of those because mom drinks instant coffee too! Hope everything is back to normal!!
    Miley and Maggie recently posted..Our Weekend GoodbyeMy Profile

    • Hi Miley and Maggie,

      Yes thankfully the men fixed it in the afternoon – it was because we had a lot of rain in a few days…..

      So no more silly noises in the kitchen – I’m sure glad Mum drinks instant coffee, I bet you’re glad too? :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  17. I don’t drink coffee buy my fiance does. The only time he drinks instant is when we are out camping….and it’s Starbucks instant at that :)

    We’re happy to be back in the blog hop today. We have missed everybody :)

  18. Oooo I bet its a scary sounding machine!

    Stop on by for a visit

  19. Oh Snoopy! We don’t like strange noises either. It’s good that you barked ‘tho! Just in case. That’s my motto, to bark is better ’cause you never know, bol!
    Prudence recently posted..What A Week!My Profile

  20. Ha!!! my perfect doggie friend! You are more like me after all!!!!

    Good job Snoopy!! That was some fine barkin’!!!!

    I am soooooooooooo proud of you!

    I do the same thing when my Mom beats eggs, when she sprays “I can’t believe it’s not butter” and when she uses a HAND HELD CAN OPENER (not an electric one! BOL!!)

    Ya done me proud my friend!!

    Barks and licks and love!

    • Wow Dakota,

      It must be pretty noisy in your house buddy!! I’m mute compared to you – though Mum will be happy when that silly bird finally goes, cos I still keep barking at him!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  21. Poor Snoopy!!! We are sorry that mum got you all in a twitter. We cannot believe she was laughing at you. These humans love to try to play tricks on us. Funny thing is that when we start barking our mama does the same thing. Just stands there and snickers. Either way hope you didn’t get too scared.

    • Hey Guys,

      I guess the good thing is that Mum normally laughs at my Mischief too!! Tee Hee

      Luckily I was over it as soon as it stopped – I’m a tough Doggie you know!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  22. Snoops, that scary machine definitely must be scary, because Cinco barked along right with you!!

  23. Oh boy! It sure does sound like your Mom was trying to get into some mischief! Now this is exactly why I stay away from these scary machines!
    Jen recently posted..Bear With MeMy Profile

    • Hi Jen,

      I’m glad to hear you don’t mess with the scary machine, and hopefully my Mum won’t venture near it again either!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  24. It’s the coffee grinder that scary in my house! Don’t blame you for barking, Snoopy!

    • Hey Sage,

      Humans and their coffee, huh? I don’t get it – I’m just glad Mum went back to her instant and peace was resumed!! :)

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  25. It’s nice of you to warn your mum like that :) She really is up to mischief isn’t she??
