Monday Mischief – Learn To Count – I’m Serious! :)

I loved being on the Bed so much when we were at the Hotel in Salt Lake City that I thought I’d have another try at making it acceptable at home….

So here’s the thing, it appears I can get away with jumping up on the bed so long as I get off by the time Mum counts to 3 (It’s not like you have to learn to count really high, 3 seems to be sufficient!) :)

Introducing Mischief Rule No. 18 – Learn to Count!

Yes, I really can count, this is a little trick I learnt a while back –  Trust me Mischief Makers it gets you out of a lot of trouble…..

Big Mischief being on the bed, right? Watch me get away with it!! Tee Hee

Of course, I like to have the last word, and so long as I do that funny thing and shake my head at the same time, Mum is too busy being amused to realize I had the last word!!  Tee Hee

  1. It’s good to know how to count. Very important for staying out of trouble. :)

    • Hi Aimee,

      Believe me, I’m glad I learnt this skill, I always pretend I’m not gonna move, but then when Mum gets to 3 I’m off – it’s worth it, cos then she’s so impressed I don’t get busted!! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  2. Oh look at that bed!!!! LOLOL Looks like you need to discuss the bed situation at home with mama….LOLOL!! HE HE HE…..:0) Happy Sunday!

  3. Ooooo, you are so smart Snoopy. Torrey and I will take notes on that lesson for sure,
    Roxy recently posted..Monday Mischief, more preventionMy Profile

    • Thanks Roxy,

      I’m just happy Mum only counts to 3, I can manage that, any more and it may get confusing!! Tee Hee

      Can’t wait to see you and Torrey doing it too :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  4. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    Great rule! The only thing Mom does not permit in the bed is WWW wrestling!
    Jet recently posted..Blog on Fire?My Profile

    • Hey Jet,

      You’re so lucky you get to be up on the bed buddy – wish I was allowed, no wrestling here either, but I don’t have a wrestle buddy like you – doh!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  5. That sounds like a great new rule, Snoops! I’ll have to work on my counting skills! (PS~ How come we’re allowed to do things on vacation that we’re not allowed to do at home? I’m still wondering…… ;)
    Daisy recently posted..The Sticky Note Bandit Strikes AgainMy Profile

    • Hey Daisy,

      You’re asking me about the vacation thing? It’s a complete mystery to me!! I’m just thankful the rules got relaxed for once – I can live in hope they get relaxed more often!! :)

      Glad you like my new rule buddy – Can you count already? :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  6. That’s so true my friend!

  7. Woof! Woof! I am not allowed to be on the bed so you are very lucky. Happy MM! Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar

    • Hey Sugar,

      Well actually I’m ‘not allowed’ on the bed either – I just like to try and make up my own rules! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Oh how funny, I’ll sometimes do a 3 count for something as well!
    Jen recently posted..Beating the heatMy Profile

  9. That is great Snoopy! I have to teach Leroy to count to! I wonder if it would work?:)
    Jen recently posted..Over the River and Through the Woods to My Sister’s House I GoMy Profile

    • Hey Jen,

      I’m sure it would, he’s super clever :) I’d love to see the video of you teaching him :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  10. Oh Snoopy! How great that you can count! I can’t believe that you actually wait until your Momma counts to three and then you jump down. Brilliant! Just brilliant my friend! :)
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday Mischief – Too Up Close and PersonalMy Profile

    • Hi Bassetmomma,

      Well, let’s face it, I’m not gonna give up and extra 2 seconds on the bed, right?! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  11. That counting thing is a great idea. I wonder if it would work for me.
    Bongo recently posted..Floating on the NileMy Profile

    • Hey Bongo

      I’m sure it would buddy – it seems you can get away with lots so long as you stop by the time Mum’s finished counting!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  12. Well, it is not right that you get different rules about different beds. I think you should be allowed on all of them period. BOL
    Jana Rade recently posted..Adoption Monday: Lucky, Dachshund Mix, Deerfield, NHMy Profile

    • Hey Jana,

      You Rock!! I totally agree with you – just a shame I can’t seem to convince Mum and Dad!! Doh!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  13. Hee hee! Flo’s not allowed on the bed either… but thankfully she doesn’t even try and sneak on. She knows!
    H and Flo recently posted..Monday Mischief – How Does Your Garden GrowMy Profile

    • Hi H and Flo,

      Hmmm, but maybe Flo sneaks on when you’re not looking? Just thinking out loud! Tee Hee – Nope, I’m sure she doesn’t….. :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  14. That is funny Snoopy. Maybe I should teach that counting thing to the brown dawgs. No, I would probably make it to 100 with no response…lol.

    Peggy Frezon recently posted..How to Publish Your Dog’s StoryMy Profile

    • Hey Peggy,

      I’m thinking it’s best we don’t even go there – though on second thoughts maybe I’ll try cos she always caves in when she sees my big eyes and silly face and I don’t ‘really’ get into trouble – Tee Hee :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  17. Snoopy you are very wise to know when Mischief might turn into real trouble. We like to get the last word in too! :)

    • Hey Bella and DiDi,

      Well, especially as I saw Mum had the video camera I had to make sure everyone knew she’s not really in charge around here, I just let her think that a bit!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  18. Sampson and Delilah have learned to count too! I use 1-2-3 on our walks, when someone stops to sniff. It gives them the opportunity to sniff, but not too long! :-)

    Happy Mischief Monday Snoopy!
    Jodi recently posted..Mock 10 With My Hair On FireMy Profile

    • Hi Jodi,

      3 seconds for a sniff? Wow, they must be super quick, Cosmo and I like way longer than that, Mum doesn’t get it and she’s always nagging us, hopefully she won’t introduce the count to 3 too….

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  19. Haaaaaaaaaaaa buddy!!!!! I love how you wait til almost THREE and then you run for your life!!! Of course you have to have the last word with your bark! Good counting my friend!!!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota
    caren gittleman recently posted..I was given ANOTHER Award!!My Profile

    • Hi Dakota,

      Yeah – Timing is everything, I think I’ve perfected that bit – Tee Hee

      Glad you liked the bark at the end, I thought that was a nice little touch!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  20. LOL! My mom does the count to 3 thing with my sister and I but that is when we are out walking and sniffing too long on something – we have until 3 to pee on it or she yanks us away. We know exactly when 3 comes and occasionally she will toss in a NOW after 3 to give my older sister a bit more time. I guess the count to 3 thing is a fun human thing???
    Emma recently posted..Guess Who Is Back | GBGVMy Profile

    • Hey Emma,

      Humans are weird!! I so don’t get them, I just humor them…. :)

      So effectively you’ve now got up to 4 in your count, before you know it you’ll be up to 10 – very impressive work guys :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  21. Hey Snoopy my mom learned in Mr. Dean’s dog class that the real challenge for dog owners is NOT to teach their dogs to count: as in, “Sit. Sit. Sit. Please Sit! SIT SIT SIT SIT SIT!!!” and the dog thinks, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9…nope, not to 10 yet…”For the LAST TIME – SIT!” and yep that’s 10, time to park it :D
    We both got a good laugh from the video. I’m allowed on the guest bed but not mom and dad’s bed. I should be confused but somehow I keep it straight (well, mostly).
    Toby recently posted..Toby Beats the Heat/Monday Mischief?My Profile

    • Hey Toby,

      Yeah, we tried the one time ‘Off’ command and for some reason I just couldn’t even hear that!! Tee Hee – The count to 3 is like a compromise that Mum and I have worked out….. :)

      I’m glad you’re so smart to understand the being allowed on certain beds rule, it’s confusing sometimes, hey buddy?! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  22. You have a very loud voice Snoopy…and not to mention, smart ;)

    We don’t have any mischief to share today…Papoe and I are playing nice babies

      No Mischief? Huh? I can’t even imagine that? Tee Hee :)

      I hope I didn’t scare your delicate little Turtle ears with my Big Dog Bark? :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  23. ROFL! Snoopy! You are too clever! You smart dog you. ;)
    Marquie recently posted..What’s the opposite of Monday Mischief?My Profile

  24. See, Snoopy, I don’t get the counting thing. We beg Chester and Gretel to snuggle in the bed with us. Of course, they are much smaller though :) Next time she does that, tell her that all your friends are doing it :)
    Jessica @ YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..Climbing Up, Up, Up Mt. SiMy Profile

    • Hey Jessica,

      I try so hard to tell her that – even show her pictures, but she says, no way is she having a big Fluffy, Hot, Dog who wriggles on the bed!! Doh!!

      I won’t give up though :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  25. Hi Snoopy!

    I don’t think my boys know how to count yet. Stetson doesn’t even wake up sometimes when I approach the bed. I don’t think I can wake such a comfortable dog. I guess I’m just a push over when it comes to Stetson and Linus and the bed.

    Happy Monday!
    Colby recently posted..The Benefits Of Owning A Pet…My Life As A Pet ParentMy Profile

    • Hey Colby,

      I wish my Mum was a push over too, I’d push her to the edge of the bed so I could have more space – Tee Hee

      Your guys sure are living the dream…. :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  26. I’m impressed, Snoopy!!! It’s a well known fact that cats can count…but I had no idea dogs could too! …Say, do you think you can count to FIVE? We’re having FIVE whole days of giveaways at!! Woot Woot! There might even be something you’d like to enter to win! (I’ll make sure you don’t win any cat treats.)

    xo, Katie
    Glogirly and Katie recently posted..GLOGIRLY DESIGN Announces Giveaway WeekMy Profile

    • Hey Katie,

      I guess that well known Cat fact was missed by me – I’m super impressed you can count too!! I don’t think I even realized just how smart you are! :)

      Ooooh, contests? Woohoo!! I’m heading over right now!! :)

      Big Doggie Wags,

      Snoops :)

  27. Hay Snoopy, weee’s gonna join your Monday Mischiefs :) I’ms only allowed on the bed for a cuddle in the mornings, that ” Furaball” is always sneakin up there. That’s what Cats doo, they sneak around :)

    • Hey Mollie,

      I’ve seen the Furball Cats sneaking around the neighborhood too, but when I get close they bolt off!! I’ve never had one in my house though…..

      Putting a video on WordPress is easy (even my Mum can do it!) :) I’d recommend installing the Vipers video quicktags plugin and adjust the settings to suit you and then it’s really easy from there…. If you need any help, just let us know :)

      Big Paw Five’s Back at ya,

      Snoops :)

  28. Hahaha! Hey Snoopy, that is quite the spiffy trick! I might have to teach Bella that one. (It would keep me from having to give her “the glare”. :)
    Leslie recently posted..Best laid plans and all thatMy Profile

    • Hey Leslie,

      Oh yes ‘The Glare’ – Dad is good at that, Mum not so much!! Tee Hee

      Let me know if you teach Bella this trick, it’s fun :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  29. BOL! You are so smart Snoopy! Keep on getting up there…you will wear your mums out pretty soon and maybe she will let you stay on the bed longer! That’s what we did :) We just kept getting on the bed until mom gave up!
