Monday Mischief – I Can’t Walk!

It’s that time of Year again – I just suddenly can’t walk, nope, not even one more step!

When I was younger I used to collapse on the floor when this happened, this year I’m just frozen to the spot, but at least I can stay upright this time!

What is this Mischief that causes this disaster?

Look at the Tree, trying to pretend it’s all innocent!!


You can’t fool me!! I know of your Mischief!! I can see it all over the floor – just waiting to get me – to jump on me and stick in my fur!!


Nope Cosmo, no matter how fast we run, they’re gonna get us!! I’m scared!! I can’t do it!!


Do you want me to talk to him again? He’s such a Girl!!


Oh No!! They Got Me!!


Mum!! Quick!! HELP!! I can’t walk!!


Phew!! Thanks Mum – Ok, we can carry on now…. :)


Cosmo just has no idea how scary it is for me to get even one of those nasty things on my coat!!  He’d be quite happy walking around with half a Tree in his coat all day!!

Being a fluffy thing isn’t always easy you know, if you want to keep your coat looking nice for the Girlies!! :)

  1. Darby knows just how you feel, Snoopy. He acts like he’s caught in a bear trap when something gets stuck in his fur! Good thing your mom knows just how to get you up and going again :)

    • Haha Vicky,

      Oh I know all about how Darby feels – Mum says I look like I’ve suddenly got no bones in my body when I collapse!! :)

      Wags to Darby,

      Snoops :)

  2. BOL I hate those too!

  3. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    Oh no, they gotcha huh? I’m sort of like Cosmo. I get stickers, leaves, flowers and other outside stuff in my fur. You’re right, being fluffy isn’t easy when you come home from a walk looking like a sticker bush!

    I applaud your courage.

    Cosmo… you had a great caption today!
    Jet recently posted..Mischief Monday: I Couldn’t Help It…My Profile

    • Hey Jet,

      Thanks for applauding me buddy, it sure took some guts to go through that Mischief – Cosmo just doesn’t understand!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  4. Ha! Sometimes I wish Moses and Alma were maybe a little more worried about the foliage they bring back in their coats.

    • Hey Winston,

      I like your unrooooly Mischief buddy – I totally get it – doesn’t your Mom want you to look your best at ALL times!! :) Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  6. Poor Snoopy, I bet it hurts like the dickens coming out!
    Jodi recently posted..Light Bulb MomentMy Profile

    • Hi Jodi,

      If Mum gets it off straight away it’s usually ok, the ones that flick up onto my belly are definitely harder to get off – and lets not even talk about the sticky buds!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

    we would scream at those tree worms
    Benny & Lily

    • Hey Benny & Lily,

      Maybe I’m just being too soft with those Mischief Trees – I need to start screaming at them too!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  8. Hey Snoopy!

    Good thing mom takes good care of you. Lucky for me not much gets caught in the short Labrador Retriever coats, but Apache used to collect a few twigs once in a while.

    I hope you had a good weekend!

    Take care,

    • Hi Colby,

      Yep, Linus and Stetson sure are lucky that they don’t have to worry about this kind of Mischief, it causes me a lot of stress, so I feel for Apache – I hope he’s doing well in his training :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  9. Oh! I can’t stand those things! They stick to the Newfs coat like they are velcro and then they track them all over the house!
    Jen recently posted..Black and White Sunday 8/12/12My Profile

    • Hi Jen,

      Oh yes I forgot about how they track in the house – I’m sure Mum didn’t!! :) You must get lots with the Newfs?

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  10. Oh no! Run Snoopy! Run Cosmo!

  11. I guess I’m lucky I have short hair. I’d hate to have anything get in the way of looking nice for the girls.
    Bongo recently posted..Back on His Word AgainMy Profile

  12. Huahahaha…I have to go with Cosmo on this Snoopy!! You should just walk like a man and ignore those sticks
    Kroten recently posted..The 5 Month Old MeMy Profile

    • Hi Kroten,

      I hear what you’re saying buddy – but you can’t imagine how scary they are!! Sometimes I get maybe 6 clinging on to me!! Arrrgh!!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  13. Aren’t those things just awful???? We sympathize!!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  14. Wow Snoops, those fings are quite spikey..You’ll never get dose out of your furs…

  15. Such mischief! I bet you have a sticky personality. That’s why they stick to you. LOL.

    So how was your walkie with Cosmo? Any battle scars?

    Huggies and Cheese,

    • Hi Haopee,

      My walk was fun, I just have to let Mum know any time one of those things dares to touch my fur!! It’s outrageous! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  16. Oh Snoopy it must be scary to worry about those spikey things. Lucky you to have a friend to give you moral support :)

    • Hi Amy and Toby,

      You’re right, I’m lucky to have Cosmo as my friend – he’s awesome – even if he does tease me!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  17. I don’t blame you Snoopy! After I got all those crazy spiky weed seeds in my paws and fur in Florida, I don’t want to walk around outside there anymore either!
    Daisy recently posted..Monday Mischief: I Got ‘Em Back!My Profile

  18. Poor Snoopy. I don’t blame you for being afraid of getting that stuff caught up in your coat. It could prompt another grooming session…!
    Donna and the Dogs recently posted..Fat Cells Gone WildMy Profile

  19. Well Snoops, as I see it you’ve got three choices.
    1. Pony tails. And lots of them.
    2. Shave.
    3. Make like a cat and sleep all day.

    Glogirly and Katie recently posted..Gamer Week Day 1 – Wheel Of FortuneMy Profile

    • Katie,

      Thanks so much for your input, however I’m a little confused:

      1. But I’m not a Pony?
      2. Shave off my beautiful fur? I don’t think even you would still have a crush on me?! :)
      3. Pretend to be a Cat? Imagine my repetitional damage with the Doggies?

      Oh dear, maybe need a re-think :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  20. Glad to hear you escaped the yucky sticky things and therefore avoided a bath *shudder*
    I just had to have one of those – oh the horror!
    Misaki recently posted..Bath time bluesMy Profile

    • Hey Misaki,

      Sorry to hear you got a bath buddy!! You think I avoided one? I wish – Oh no, I got ANOTHER one yesterday – every Sunday is bath day!! Doh!! I think I could be in the Guinness Book of records for the most bathed Doggie – lucky me!! Not!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  21. Oh dear, they look annoying to your beautiful furs. Maybe you need to go out in booties and a coat?! Or have mom and dad sweep the walk before you. Good luck!
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..Introducing a New Dog. Kelly and Brooks UpdateMy Profile

    • Hi Peggy,

      Thanks so much for coming up with some solutions, but I have to say the booties and coat really are a non-starter – Mum can’t even get 4 socks on me, let alone get the booties anywhere near my feet – however I think your second option is totally possible!! Tee Hee

      Big Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  22. Roo Snoopy! You’re right avoiding those scary things buddy – they could be aliens! *waggy tail*

  24. Oh Snoop, I never knew you were such a wimp. BOL. I’m sorry, but you wouldn’t be very good at camping. Torrey always has stuff stuck in her fur.
    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

    • Hey Roxy,

      I’m gonna forgive you, cos I know you’re just messing with me, but did you really just call me a wimp? Huh? Do you not understand the magnitude of scariness of running through the sticky things? Clearly not – cos you’re not so fluffy!!

      And I’ll have you know I went camping when I was just a few months old – ok, Mum brought my brush, my fur was a lot shorter and I was held a lot, buy anyway, that’s not the point!! :)

      Love ya as always buddy,

      Snoops :)

  25. Wow – you are a regular princess and the pea! Good thing your momma is there ready to help out and, more importantly, keep you looking sharp for the ladies!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Pancake Catching FailMy Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      My Doggie Dad told me it’s important to always look good for the Girlies – I have high standards, what else can I say? Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  26. Yikes!!! That is just horrible!!!! Bad tree!

    Higgins recently posted..Monday Mom Mischief!My Profile

  27. Oh Snoopy! I don’t blame you one bit for not wanting those nasty things sticking to your fluffy beautiful self! Where’s Cosmos pride! LOL!
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday Mischief – Not Here!My Profile

    • Hey Bassetmomma,

      Who knows where his pride is, he’s really got no clue when it comes to the Girlies!! Tee Hee – Maybe I need to take him under my wing? :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  28. Awww. Snoopy, I didn’t think you were afraid of anythings. I’m glad Cosmo was there to help you through it.
    Leslie recently posted..Black & White Sunday – Intrepid explorerMy Profile

    • Hi Leslie,

      Well, I’m only afraid of really scary things, like those things that come from the trees, oh and plastic bags!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  29. Sorry to hear that Snoopy.. You are lucky to have Cosmo by your side.. I hope you are getting better now.

  30. I know exactly how you feel pal. Same thing happens to me!
    Your pal,

  31. It’s when Mom comes at me with the scissors that I get all wonky. Sometimes those things just don’t go away with a shake or a little grooming.
    Sage recently posted..Teaser TuesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      Yep a shake is the best option – didn’t work just now when we went out and I got a gazillion on me, Mum (and me) were not happy – it took her forever to get them off!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  32. Hay Snoop’s..Ya gonna enter by funny photie competition ?? :) real prezzie to be won :)
