Monday Mischief – Cosmo made it!! Woohoo!!

Yay – I’ve got something really important to tell you today – and I think it’s actually pretty funny!!

First though, I have to apologise to my buddy Cosmo who lives next door – last week I was complaining that he wasn’t getting the hang of Mischief, but it turns out he’s been up to some pretty good Mischief – Yay – Cosmo is a Mischief Maker!! :)


Cosmo - I'm so proud of you - you're a fellow Mischief Maker!! I'm not surprised you're grinning buddy - that's some good Mischief!! :)

Cosmo has been running each morning with Mum and I for a few months now – he really likes it – he likes it so much he wants to make sure he’s always ready and doesn’t miss us…..

So, for quite a few weeks, it turns out he’s been waking his family up at 5am, yes 5am to get them to let him outside so he can wait in the garden for us!!  We never go before 8am, so he’s 3 hours early!! :)

He won’t even go back in to say Good morning to everyone when they get up in case he misses us…..


What’s more, Mum told his Mum we’d take him Monday to Friday as our schedule is pretty consistent on those days, but nope, Cosmo waits for us at the weekend too!!

As soon as he hears us leaving he scratches on the gate to make sure we know he’s there – so I get to see him everyday – Cosmo you’re the Best!! :)

I think I learnt a good lesson -

Rule no. 14 – The Modest, quiet guys could have some great Mischief up their sleeve!! 

Cosmo, sorry I ever doubted your Mischief potential buddy!! It's ok Snoops, you weren't to know, I just didn't want to brag about it!! Tee Hee

  1. Oh horray for Cosmo, sad for his mom and dad though…..BOL. Torrey and I are great at waking mom and dad up too.

    • Hi Roxy,

      I’m sure your Mum and Dad love their wake up call too!! Tee Hee – I used to do that around 6am – but these days I prefer to only get up when Mum and Dad get up and even then I’ll often go back to sleep – all the Mischief tires me out!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Ooo Cosmo that’s BIG mischief – only one thing for it Mum and Dad- give Cosmo his own key!
    Keep on Running………

    • Hi Helen,

      That’s a really good idea – I’m sure everyone would be a winner with that solution!! He’s 4, do you think he’s old enough? :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day

      Snoops :)

  3. That’s just great, Cosmo. Megan said can she come running with you too? She used to go running with her breeder, but we can’t get my Mistress to move at anything like that speed. Mind you at 5am all I want to do is get into my Mistress’s bed with her. That’s far to early to actually get up!

    • Oooh yeah Alfie Dog,

      We’d sure love to have Megan join us – the more the merrier, especially a girlie!! :)

      I’m with you though (no, not literally in your Mum’s bed!) – I don’t like getting up that early either, plus there’s no way I’m gonna let Mum sneak out without me, so I don’t need to get up so early!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. You go, Cosmo! I knew you had some mischief in ya! Teehee! ;)

    Happy Sunday woofs & hugs, my friends! <3

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

  5. Awesome story Snoopy…it’s always nice to have fellow mischiefer ;)
    I have my brother ans my fellow mischiefer … so happy to have him in the family.

    Say hi to Cosmo from us :)

    • Hi Kroten,

      Cosmo says Hi back – yeah it’s always more fun when there’s another Mischief Maker around – double trouble!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  6. Yay for Cosmo!

    That is some good mischief Cosmo, BOL
    Benny & Lily

    • Hey Benny & Lily,

      Didn’t he do good!! I don’t think I’ve ever got my Mum and Dad up that early, even when I was a little pup!! And certainly if I did, I never did it everyday!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Hey Snoopy, Hey Cosmo, Jet here.

    You know what? Last week, we thought you got a brother, or we never realized you shared the house with Cosmo… now we know he’s your neighbor!

    Please let Cosmo know that I wake up at 5 a.m. too and would be available for visits. It took me a few years to train Mom, however, I persisted. We would send Cosmo back to you at 8, in time for your run. BTW, you two look so handsome with your complimentary coloring. (that was from Mom, as if you couldn’t tell.)
    Jet recently posted..Mischief Monday: Fine Motor Skills RequiredMy Profile

    • Hi Jet buddy,

      Sorry if I confused you, yeah Cosmo and I are best mates and we go to each others houses when our families decide to go away without us (yeah, I know, hard to believe, but they do it!!)

      You’re awake at 5am!! I’m sure Cosmo would be delighted to play with you whilst he’s waiting for me and Mum to get our lazy butts out running, I’m not a big fan of getting up that early and Mum always insists on doing ‘stuff’ before she takes us out…. I’m impressed that you managed to train your Mum buddy – I don’t think I could even if I wanted to!

      As for the colouring thing, yeah, I guessed it was your Mum – it’s a girlie thing – but thanks anyway – I’ll tell Cosmo! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day

      Snoops :)

  9. Way to go Cosmo! With our Snoops as your inspiration I just KNEW you’d be good at making Mischief! Apparently I’m pretty good at it too. My Mom keeps telling me that I play too rough. Just cuz I like to body slap JD when he’s not looking. JD’s a good sport ~ he runs and plays with me after he picks himself up off the ground and gets his bearings back….


    Your Pal in Mischief,

    • Hero,

      You made me LOL with your tail of play with JD – I was picturing the scene!! :) Poor JD, glad he’s such a tough cookie and good play mate…. :)

      Have fun guys,

      Snoops :)

  10. Cosmo may have more mischief in him than even me. I let my people sleep in. Of course, that’s because I like sleeping in too.
    Bongo recently posted..He’s Coming!My Profile

    • Hey Bongo,

      You and me both – no way I’m getting up that early either…. Cosmo is so funny!! He’s such a good Mischief Maker :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  11. Woof! Woof! That is wonderful and sweet waiting for you guys. It’s too bad that you guys can’t go n take him during the weekends. You guys looks great! Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar
    Golden Woofs! SUGAR recently posted..Monday Mischief: Awwww Left BedindMy Profile

    • Hi Sugar,

      Sorry, I must have made it confusing – we do take him at the weekends too – cos he lets us know he’s there, as soon as we come out of the door, no matter what time, he scratches on the gate so we can come and get him – he’s super clever – he pretends he doesn’t know the difference between the week and the weekend!! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  12. Good going Cosmo. I bet 5am goes over real well on weekends. :)

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Strangely I don’t think his family are too impressed with the early start to the weekends – Tee Hee

      Have fun guys,

      Snoops :)

  13. Ha!Ha! Cosmo, that’s some great 5:00 a.m. mischief for sure! It’s always the quiet ones! LOL!

  14. Way to go Cosmo! I guess he wakes up so early so he doesn’t miss you guys!! That is too funny!

      Yep, that’s exactly what he’s doing, he’s not taking any chances, he’s so sweet! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day

      Your pal Snoopy :)

  15. That’s the way Cosmo. You get those lazy humans up. I think you’ll find they appreciate it even more now that winter’s rolling in!

    • Hi Higgins

      You may be right, maybe all my efforts to show him how much fun Mischief is might be paying off!! He sure was smiling about it :)


      Snoops :)

  20. Awwww Cosmo is just super excited to see you! Love it!

  21. Cosmo sounds like a real mischief pal! Top marks for his first attempt on mischief!
    I met a doggie just like you the other day in the park – he was full of mischief! I’ll share the video on Facebook so you can see us playing. I didn’t quite realise how BIG you Beardies are until he was all over me, fluffy coat and all! *waggy tail*

    • I know Julie,

      I don’t know how he manages to be so fast after waking up so early, maybe he goes to bed super early?

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)
