Monday Mischief Master Class – Rule No. 16 – Make sure the Lookout Doesn’t Fall Asleep on the Job!

I had this great idea – I decided to take a nap on the sofa (which I’m not allowed on) whilst Mum and Dad were out – the great idea was that Dinosaur would keep guard and wake me up when he heard them arriving home…..

What I didn’t realize was that Dinosaur wasn’t up to the job and fell asleep – so we both got busted!!  Doh!!

Some Lookout You Were Dinosaur!! Doh!! :)


Introducing Rule No. 16 – Make sure the Lookout Doesn’t Fall Asleep on the Job!!

Next time I’m gonna set the alarm clock….. :)

  1. Oh dear – asleep on the job.You need a different dinosaur, maybe one of those ‘D’ya think e saurus’ would do a better job. :)

    • Hi Alfie Dog,

      Yep, I sure need to give this Dinosaur a little rest from his duties, he’s way too tired for such responsibilities!! Luckily, I have lots more Dinosaurs in my toy basket to choose from!! Cory loves Dinosaurs and I get all his old stuffed toys, hence the Dinosaur theme!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  2. Boy your mum must have been super quite coming into the house. You must have a chat with dinosaur about that whole alarm system.
    Roxy recently posted..Monday Mischief in PrescottMy Profile

    • Hey Roxy,

      That’s a good point, I’m thinking Mum may have been all sneaky and super quiet just to catch us? Hmmmm….. Maybe she’s got wise to my Mischief? That’s not good!! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  3. Aw Snoops – caught napping- is that why all the dinos are extinct?
    Next time – plant a few extra squeaky toys around the front door – when mom and dad come home and accidentally step on them – hey presto you’ll be wide awake, off the sofa in a jiffy and innocently standing there waiting to greet them :)
    Have fun xx

    • Hey Helen,

      That’s a great idea – I’m super good at planting stuff for my Mum to step on, don’t know why I didn’t think of it? Usually I leave my bone lying around and I know when she’s stepped on that!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. And if you do wake up and jump off in time…don’t leave your guard as evidence of the crime!

    • Hi Guys,

      You’re right, gotta cover up!! I’ll check for random bits of fur next time too, I’m sure Dad would notice any fur that doesn’t jump off the couch with me!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  5. Benny & Lily says:

    that dinosaur is fired!

  6. Hello Snoops! Why’d you trust a dinosaur to do a cat’s job? You need to adopt a cat, buddy! Ask your mom to go to the nearest shelter to get you a guard cat… Kidding aside, I bet Cosmo would’ve done a better lookout.

    Huggies and Cheese.

    • Hi Haopee,

      Well, you see I only have what I have to work with – I asked for a Cat, but Mum said no – so I had to make do with a Dinosaur….. I think you’re right though, I should have called Cosmo!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  7. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    Dude, here’s a hint… dino doesn’t possess the skill set to help you on this one… I recommend your good buddy, Cosmo… with an alarm back up!
    Jet recently posted..Mischief Monday – No On, No OffMy Profile

    • Thanks Jet,

      I guess I expected too much from him – now I think about it more, Comso always Barks when his family arrive home in the car, maybe he could do the same for me?

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  8. Not allowed on that nice couch? Geeze.

    You definitely need a better lookout!

    • Hey Jen,

      Geeze is right!! It’s so not fair!! :)

      I’m gonna recruit a better lookout I think!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  9. Most of the time my alarm clock works, but every once in awhile I don’t wake up in time and I get busted on the couch.
    Bongo recently posted..The Writing on the WallMy Profile

    • Hi Bongo,

      So, you have the same silly couch rule in your house too?!

      We need to come up with a plan buddy to overturn this silly rule, then we won’t need the alarm clocks or lookouts!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  10. Woof! Woof! Can totally relate …not sure why I am not allowed to be on the couch too. It is not fair. Next time you need to get another reliable guard. Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar
    Golden Woofs! SUGAR recently posted..Burying My StickMy Profile

    • Hi Sugar,

      You’re right there, it’s NOT fair!! There’s no-one even using the couch when they’re out, so why not LET us on when they go out? :) Then we wouldn’t need a guard!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day buddy :)

      Snoops :)

  11. Why weren’t you allowed to sleep on the couch Snoopy?
    You should have a cat for your look out, they are quite noisy ;)
    Papoe recently posted..Extreme Sun LoverMy Profile

    • Hi Papoe,

      That’s a very good question, I have no idea why I’m not allowed to sleep on the couch, silly rule!! :)

      I’d love a Cat – I think – but Mum said No – doh!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  12. It sure looked comfy while it lasted. An alarm clock sounds like a good idea!
    2 brown dawgs recently posted..Monday Mischief–She’s BackMy Profile

  13. Snooopy – you need to fire that dinosaur straight away. Or at least demote him to other duties. And here’s another tip – if you fold your ears back before you fall asleep, you might hear better when all that ‘wool’ is out of the way *waggy tail*
    Alfie |Alfie’s Blog recently posted..My Name is Alfie and I’m a Ballaholic – Now Stop Teasing Me!My Profile

    • Hi Alfie,

      I sure appreciate your advice – but have you seen how big and floppy my ears are? I’ll try though….. as for Dinosaur, his lookout days sure are on hold for the foreseeable future!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  14. I love this picture! You can head on over and sleep on my couch anytime Snoopy!
    Jodi recently posted..Ouch THAT Bit Me!My Profile

    • Yay Jodi,

      I may well just take you up on your offer – I love it on the Couch – I sure don’t get enough opportunities around here…. :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  15. I can’t believe that dinosaur let you down! You can never counts on those guys, that’s why we rely on stuffed bunnies:)
    Jen recently posted..Creating Our Own MischiefMy Profile

    • Hey Jen,

      You guys rely on stuffed bunnies? I don’t think I’ve even got any of those? You never know though, I’ll take a look in the bottom of my toy basket, I find all kinds in there – gotta be better than Dinosaur!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  16. Uh oh! You’ll have to tell Mr. Dinosaur that if he isn’t up to the job you’ll have to pick another toy! hee hee! It’s hard to find a good lookout now a days! :)
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday Mischief – Dirty LaundryMy Profile

    • Hi Bassetmomma,

      It sure is hard – way harder than I could have imagined – I’m gonna have another look in my toy basket to see if anyone else is up to the job? :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  17. Dinosaurs are notoriously unreliable. Next time you’re choosing an alarm clock, go for something a little less prehistoric.
    H and Flo recently posted..Monday Mischief – Muuuuuum! There’s a Monster in the Bed!My Profile

    • Hi H and Flo,

      I had no idea how unreliable they are – or how much sleep they need….. I think I need to get with the times!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  18. Ok I am gonna start some REAL mischief! I think you should be allowed on the couch!!!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota
    caren gittleman recently posted..It’s Memorial Day…My Profile

    • Tee Hee Dakota,

      You’re such a great Mischief Maker buddy!! I’m gonna pass your message onto my Mum – she doesn’t listen to me, but how could she possibly ignore you? :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  19. Zooperson says:

    Hey Snoops, sack that dino fellow and gets some little Christmas jingle bells to hang on the door. My mom did that so she can hear when her students arrive–she’s a tutor and she wants a little bit of warning so they can’t sneak up on her, and that’s just what you need–a little bit of warning. Just a suggestion from you friend Lady Caroline Lamb.

    • Oooh Lady Caroline,

      What a great idea!! I never thought of that one!! She’s super sneaky, but I don’t think she’ll get around that bit of Mischief!! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  20. I hate it when that happens…I guess that’s the problem with dinosaurs: you just can’t trust them with complex tasks that involve keeping guard or other doggy activities.
    Tootsie recently posted..Happy Memorial DayMy Profile

    • Hi Tootsie,

      There was me thinking it was such a simple task, as I was enjoying my sweet dreams – little did I realize how tough a job it was for little Dinosaur – doh!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  21. Boy, busted for sofa napping AND possible mouse murder charges all in one week! Snoops…what can I say? ; ) Bet you’re wishing you were a cat right about now. Sofa napping is not only legal, but expected. And we don’t tend to convict our own. heh heh!
    Love ya all the same!

    Glogirly and Katie recently posted..Whodunnit BlogPaws GiveawayMy Profile

    • Hi Katie,

      Firstly I’m gonna ignore the mention of the murder charges as they’re clearly fabricated, what I AM gonna focus on though is that you just declared your LOVE for me!! Woohoo!! I’m all waggy!! I knew you couldn’t resist my fluffy charms!! :)

      Love ya too Katie :)

      Snoops :)

      PS – clearly I don’t need to wish I was a CAT cos I’m getting CAT love anyway – Woohoo!! The sofa can wait…. :)

  22. Hi Y’all,

    A little comfy nap everyone needs!

    How y’all doin’? Just stoppin’ by for a visit. Hope y’all are having a wonderful Memorial Day.

    Y’all come by now,

      Yeah – I mean come on, they weren’t even in and they’d never have known if Dinosaur had just done his job!! Doh!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day Dude,

      Snoops :)

  23. That dinosaur really let you down! Some friends aren’t good at keeping a watch. At least you got some time on the couch.

    • Hi Bella and DiDi,

      I’m with you – look on the bright side – time on the sofa is good even if you do get busted – it’s not like Mum’s gonna even really me mad, by the time she’s taken her photo she’s smiling too much to be mad!! :)

      Tee Hee – I’ve got her worked out :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  24. DAng those green dinosaurs. You can never trust the green ones. Go with blue….much much more reliable.
    Bert recently posted..Four Delights of the weekendMy Profile

    • Hey Bert,

      I see, so it’s the Green ones who are unreliable, trust me to pick a green one for such a task – I think I’ve got a Blue one – let me just go and take a look…. :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  25. Oh no!!! We hope the parents didn’t get too grumpy! But either way, you are too cute to get yelled at for just relaxing on the couch. As for that green dinosaur, looks like its going to get replaced soon. That alarm clock might not be such a bad idea! LOLOL Hope you have a happy Monday, Snoopy.

      Here’s the beauty of my Mischief – I never actually get into trouble – Mum is usually too busy taking pictures!! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  26. LOL If you can’t trust a dinosaur, who can you trust? Very good point, make sure you have a trustworthy lookout!
    Jana Rade recently posted..The Calm After The StormMy Profile

    • Hi Jana,

      Good question, who can you trust, well my friend Bert says the Blue Dinosaurs are more reliable, so I may try that out?! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  27. Ack! Dinosaur must have been so cozy wrapped up in his Snoopy that he fell asleep too! :D
    Daisy recently posted..Daisy’s Big Weekend Adventure!My Profile

    • Hey Daisy,

      Yeah, I guess I am kinda fluffy and probably was a good pillow :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day my little buddy :)

      Snoops :)

  28. Good rule!
    Mr Dinosaur should be sacked from his waking up duties!

    Two Doodles and a Dane recently posted..Please don’t laugh at me…and we have been featured!My Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      I have a feeling Mr Dinosaur won’t be too bothered if I sack him, he didn’t seem very into the job!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  29. I was glad to see that dinosaur didn’t get lost in all your gorgeous white fur. Looks like you two had a great nap.

  32. Good job Snoopy – I know you have been working hard at getting on the couch ;) Maybe they will decide that you are so cute, you should get anything you want ;)

      You’d think, hey?! Tee Hee – Gotta work on my cute look, cos it’s not working yet!! Doh!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  33. Linus is a good lookout. Maybe you could employ him someday. I think he waits by the window listening for my car and as soon as he hears it runs to the front door.

    Stetson on the other hand would be about as helpful as your dinosaur friend.

    Hope you had a good weekend!
    Colby recently posted..Wordlesss Wednesday – Apache, A Guide Dog Puppy In TrainingMy Profile

    • Hi Colby,

      Does Linus accept payment in Dentastix? He sounds like a great lookout!! Maybe Stetson could join me on the sofa, there’s lots of room :)

      Have a fun day guys,

      Snoops :)

  34. You need a better watchman! Cinco says that he is your guy :)

  35. Cannot trust those pesky dinos for nothing! You should get a bird(:

  36. This is my new favorite site, I am in love with Snoopy! It was so great getting to meet the furry baby in person at Blogpaws!

    • Hi Olivia,

      You are SO sweet!! It was so much fun chatting with you – I’m sending you some big fluffy hugs!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)
