Don’t Cry Mum! When Mischief goes wrong…..

When Mischief goes wrong -

I needed to get Mum’s attention the other morning as I wanted to go for our run.

I decided to steal something from the bedroom and run past the office with it – it worked, she heard the tell-tale ‘Snoopy’s stolen something run’ and she was in hot pursuit!

Perfect! – Of course, she got the stolen goods out of my mouth and then somehow her head was above mine when I quickly lifted my head – thud!!

I’d whacked her right
in the nose – she let out a cry and then tears actually started to fall from her eyes (she said later she thinks the impact caused that) -

She said the look of concern on my face was so precious – I felt really bad for making Mum cry – so I put my paw up to her to say sorry, then I think she cried for real!!  Humans, they’re complicated! :)

Mum says the look on my face was even sweeter and cuter than this one!! :)


I wonder what other animals do to say sorry?


  1. Aww, Snoops! Your Mum knows you didn’t mean to hurt her. Just the same, it’s the right thing to do, to say you’re sorry. I’m proud of ya, Bud!

    When I’m sorry for something I usually just roll over on my back and look real scared. Because my Mum doesn’t know my history, that always makes her think I was abused and she wants to make ME feel better. A little ‘reverse psychology’ don’t ya know? ;-) It works almost every time!

    When my sister, Bella is sorry, she keeps poking her nose under Mom’s hand ~ trying to get Mom to pet her. That and she bats those big, brown eyes at Mom ~ real sad like. That one usually works too. Sable smiles. A great big wrinkly nose, toothy smile and makes a squeaky/growly noise that almost always makes Mom laugh!

    I guess there are as many ways to say “I’m sorry” as there are to get into mischief! The important thing is that our humans know that we love them and that we only want them to love us back!

    Take Care, Snoops! I’m missed chatting with you…

    Your Pal,


    • Hey Hero (and Nancy)

      I missed you guys too :)

      Glad I made you proud of me :) It was fun reading what all of you do when you’re sorry, shows how different we all are and very clever at communicating! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  2. Snoopy! We don’t think you have to say sorry with that sweet look on your face!

    • Hey Gronk and Izzie (love your names) :)

      I have to say that sweet look on my face has got me out of quite a bit of trouble!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  3. oooh Snoopy buddy! Your mom knows that you didn’t mean it. I bump heads with my mom all the time (& I have a real hard head!). She says what really smarts is if she’s too close when I flap my ears!

    • Hi Prudence,

      Ooooh, I haven’t managed to do the ear thing yet, luckily for my Mum – I think the head was a big enough shock :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. Snoopy , me neither thinks you have to say sorry to your mommie , when you have that sweet look on your face :)

    • Hey Charlie Rascal,

      I was just so concerned about her, I just automatically wanted to make her feel better, she said she’d never seen me do such a concerned look before!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  5. Oh no! Ouch for mom! Let me tell ya’, Snoopy, there was no way your mom couldn’t cry after getting whacked (even accidentally) in the nose – it’s just what happens to humans when we do that. And I KNOW your mom didn’t think you did it on purpose. We all have our moments. Hope mom’s nose is feeling better. :)

    • Thanks Leslie,

      Oh Mum’s nose is fine, she was less hurt than I thought she was, I think she was more shocked than anything! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  6. See Snoops, yooo’s fought you were bein clever, nickin someink you shouldn’t off ( what did ya nick??)

    • Hey Mollie,

      I actually stole a kind of party thing, I think you wear it around your neck if you live in Hawaii, it was on the bed, so it was an easy steal!! Tee Hee

      You’re so right Mollie, your face sure is super cute, I bet you get away with all kinds!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  7. Oh dear! I know these accidents happen Snoopy and I know just how your Momma feels. I had the same thing happen to me with Freddie awhile ago and am actually seeing someone about my nose now! The only difference is I startled Freddie out of a sleep with a kiss. So I guess the mischief gone wrong was by me! I sure hope your Momma’s nose is okay and don’t worry I’m sure she forgave that sweet face pretty quickly! :)
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Waiting Out the Heat WaveMy Profile

    • Oh Dear Bassetmomma – I hope your nose is gonna be ok!

      I bet Freddie wondered what the heck was going on? I get startled easily too when I sleep – I’ll have to tell me not to try giving me a kiss whilst I’m sleeping! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Ouch! That has happened here before too! Hope Mom is o.k.!
    Jen recently posted..Wordless Wednesday. Stinky Paws.My Profile

    • Thanks Jen,

      Oh Mum is fine – and my head was ok too – Tee Hee :)

      That must have been a big thud in your house with your guys – ouch!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  9. It’s worrying when you hurt someone without meaning to. I nudge them gently with my head and a sad look to say that I’m sorry.

  10. Awww, Snoops…you’re a BIG softie. Well, that thump probably didn’t feel real soft. ha! I’m too little to cause impact damage, but Gloman did that to Glogirly once by accident! …I don’t remember tears though. More speechless shock.
    heh heh
    xo, Katie

    • Hey Katie,

      Sorry to hear the same kinda thing happened to Glogirly too, did Gloman have to put his paw up to say sorry as well? Oooops, just realized he doesn’t have a paw…. :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  11. Awwww, Snoopy! You are so caring! We cry too when our humans are hurt. Also, we like to say sorry by laying at a humans’ feet.

  12. Sweeter than that one? I don’t believe it is possible. You are so adorable in that picture. At least you felt bad. My Lab Maya did that to me once and she was too excited to notice.

    I heard that dogs are really intuned to people who are crying so I pretended to cry once… It didn’t work. My dogs completely ignored me. I hope it’s because they knew I was pretending. ;)
    Dawn recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Do I Have to Wear This?My Profile

    • Thanks Dawn,

      Sorry to say I chuckled when I read your comment about how the Dogs just ignored you, yes, I’m sure it was because they are super smart and knew you were pretending!! :)

      Big Wags to all

      Snoops :)

    • Hi Dawn,

      I sure could tell if Mum was just messing with me and pretending!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  13. Oh my CAT! Dude! Did you get treats for that expression too? (how’s mom’s nose?)
    Ryker’s Boyz ‘n’ Allie recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Ryker’s Boyz ‘n’ Allie,

      Nope, I sure don’t recall getting any treats – I think I got a big hug though and Mum’s nose is perfectly fine – Yay! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  14. I’ve caught Elka head to the face a few times. She certainly hasn’t meant it any of those times, but wow, does that pointy noggin hurt!
    Jen recently posted..Stop Breed Specific LegislationMy Profile

    • Hey Jen,

      I had to chuckle at the image of the pointy noggin hitting you in the face, oooops!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  15. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    So sorry to hear about Mum. Glad she is ok, ( she is ok, right?) we all make mistakes like that. You look quite remorseful (vocab builder). Mum knows you have the kindest of hearts and would do anything to make her feel better.

    I’ve given Mom bruises the size of grapefruits by mistake. :(

    • Hey Jet,

      The size of Grapefruits – that’s pretty big, I don’t think I’ve done any quite that big – yet! :)

      Yep, Mum’s fine, I think it was more shock and a little pain than real injury – phew! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  16. You dogs definitely have hard heads and I’m sure that hurt! Sweet of you to be so concerned Snoopy, I’m sure she new it was an accident – Nice job getting her up to go for a run!

  17. Yikes! Yep sometimes those little things happen…lol. Happens around here every once in a while. Hope your Mum stopped crying.

  19. Oh Snoopy! We sure hope your Mum is feeling better, we know that you didn’t mean to bump your Mum!!

    We did chuckle at the “tell tale run”….lol…My Mom is super familiar with that.
    Hope your Mum feels better soon and you are so sweet Snoopy to touch her face with your paw!
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom

    • Thanks Dakota,

      I don’t even know if I do the ‘tell tale run’ on purpose or not, it just kinda happens!! :)

      My Mum is fine now, I’m a good Nurse! :) I hope your Mum is feeling better :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  20. Hope your mom is ok – sometimes I get mom to smash her head on something or I trip her and I know I always feel so bad but she knows I don’t ever want to harm her and she never wants to harm me either. Moms are the best! :)

    • Hey Emma,

      I agree, Moms are the best!! Mom’s also the best to react to my Mischief too, guess I’d just better watch that her head isn’t within hitting distance! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  21. Awww Snoopy, those big brown eyes say it all! Glad your Mom is okay ~ maybe an extra kiss from you will help too (those always help) ;)

  22. Awwww Snoopy, I’m sure mom knows you didn’t mean it. I do hope her nose is feeling better though. Sampson smacked me hard once or twice and I thought my nose might have been broken. There was also the time I thought her broke my leg. LOL one of these days one of these dogs will be the death of me. :-P

    • Wow Jodi,

      Sounds like you’ve really been in the wars, makes Mum’s whack on the nose seem like nothing! Take care :)

      and Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  23. I know you didn’t mean it. Oh my gosh, if your expression was any sweeter and cuter than that in the picture, I don’t know how mum could have stood it!
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..Wednesday Pet Roundup– Heatwave EditionMy Profile

    • Hey Peggy,

      It even was sweeter and cuter, that’s what Mum said, she said she’d never seen the expression before, I really was concerned that I’d hurt her….. Glad it stopped hurting quickly :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  24. Aw Snoopy! YOu’re so sweet
    Dachshund Nola recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

  25. OH….No…poor mama! Don’t worry we always do that too. :( Just be careful with mama. Just give her extra kisses and she will be fine.
    Happy Wednesday!

  26. You’re too cute Snoopy! That concerned look on your face is way too precious. In our family Linus is very in tune with my feelings too. Tell mum I hope her nose is okay.

    Take care,
    Colby recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Future Guide DogMy Profile

  27. Oh my goodness Snoopy! I know you didn’t mean to give mom such a whack on the nose, and that precious, sorrowful expression of yours is enough to make anyone cry! I hope your mom is okay and doesn’t have a black eye. I feel bad for you both!

  30. Man. I sure hope you didn’t give her a black eye :) Chester and Gretel just give me really sad eyes and crawl into my lap. I think that would harder, and possibly less pleasant, for you to pull off though. Ha, ha.

  31. Well, head bump into the nose really hurts! I got my share of them. Don’t worry, Snoopy, she knew it was an accident.
