Monday Mischief – Cosmo’s getting Good!!

My Beardie buddy Cosmo (who lives next door) never used to be very good at Mischief – or maybe he was just a little shy and left it all to me – but he’s starting to show his real Mischief skills now…..

Mum takes both of us running with her in the mornings – we’re both pretty good – but Cosmo does this thing when we’re getting near to home where he dives onto someone’s grass and starts messing about – no idea why he does it but it’s pretty funny!!

Mum took a video of him a few weeks back -

Since the video was taken he’s been wearing my old harness, which seemed to stop him doing it for a while.  However, this week he’s been practicing again and I think he’ll be up to speed soon!!  Tee Hee

Great Mischief Buddy!!

  2. Hah, that is pretty funny! Cosmo almost looks like he’s suddenly overcome by the presence of the Holy Spirit or something. Get it? He’s a “holy roller”! ;)
    Jen recently posted..The Silent TreatmentMy Profile

    • Hi Jen,

      Me thinks he’s definitely overcome by something, he just dives into the ground!! I haven’t even tried it, cos it looks weird to me – huh?

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  3. Meadow does the same thing when the peoples walk us, and it’s usually when she finds a nice lush patch of grass. Maybe she’s telling my peoples to get what the program and plant some, instead of the dirt and scrub we have for a yard?

  4. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    Snoopy, stellar directing skills dude!

    Snoop, that’s the DROP AND ROLL I’ve written extensively about! Hard to capture on film, kudos to you and Mum!

    JJ dropped and rolled for the first time on saturday. I love to drop and roll right after Mom treats us to Spa Day… which… she does NOT appreciate. BOL!

    • Hi Jet,

      You even have a name for this move? I’m impressed Jet – You’re so wise!!

      I’m also super impressed JJ has mastered it – it seems it’s quite popular, maybe I should join in too?

      Not sure about getting my lovely fur all messed up though? :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  5. Snoopy, you’re doing a great job of training Cosmo for mischief. You may have to start a school for all the neighborhood dogs.
    Bongo recently posted..Tablets of StoneMy Profile

    • Hey Bongo,

      Yep, Cosmo is my very first one on one student – I’m SO proud of him!! Can you imagine a whole neighborhood of Mischief Makers? I can!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  6. Woof! Woof! Golden LAUGHS. Great video. LOVE it. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. Cosmo is really cute!! And you know what…LadyBug does that very SAME thing!!! Only when she does it…it is usually on something smelly and yucky…and mama always yells when she does that!!

    Cosmo just looks adorable doing it! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
    bichonpawz recently posted..Monday Mischief Featuring Chloe’s SquirrelMy Profile

    • Hi Chloe and LadyBug,

      Yuk!! She rolls in smelly and yucky stuff? How gross!! At least Cosmo doesn’t do that, I wouldn’t want to run next to him being all stinky!! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  8. Cosmo is really funny Snoops..You are teaching him well :) Don’t forget to pop over, your up soon to be Spooked..Big huggies xx0000xxx

  9. Must be fun to have a friend just like you living next door that runs with you too. Mom has thought about borrowing neighbor dogs to run with her but so far has not. She loves running with dogs. Happy Mischief making! Emma :)
    Emma recently posted..My Library Visit | GBGVMy Profile

    • Hi Emma,

      Oh yeah – Cosmo sure loves to come running with us, he even bangs on the gate when he hears us coming out of the house in the morning, cos he’s always ready and waiting! :)

      Have fun

      Snoops :)

  10. Snoopy – you should go rolling too, it looks like so much fun! This sort of mischief works so much better for long haired dogs, perhaps you’ll need a special chapter for that sort of stuff in your book? *Waggy tail*
    Alfie |Alfie’s Blog recently posted..A Birthday Monkey and His MonkeyMy Profile

    • Hi Alfie,

      Tee Hee – One time Cosmo’s fur was so wet and messy when he went home his Mum thought he needed a bath!! I’m not risking that!! :)

      But after all the comments I am starting to wonder if I’m missing out on something? :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  11. That is some crazy mischief Cosmo. We guess you are just making sure to take a bit of the outside in with you. But hopefully you don’t get tangled up in the leash. We are sure that is what Snoopy was trying to tell you. :)

    • Tee Hee Browndawgs,

      Yep that’s right, I was giving him untangle instructions!! Mum can’t believe how good we are at getting out of tangles – it’s easy really – sometimes we even do a quick twirl (must be a more manly word for that?!) to untangle ourselves! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  12. Ha!Ha! I think Cosmo is just doesn’t want his run time with you and your Momma to end. He just looks like a giant dust mop when “he’s shaking it off”. LOL!
    Bassetmomma recently posted..Monday Mischief – The DecisionMy Profile

    • Haha – I’m gonna tell him he’s a giant dust mop!! Tee Hee :)

      Yep, that’s what his Mum says too, he’s delaying the end of the run :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  13. When the Spirit of Mischief takes you, Cosmo, you just HAVE to respond – and you did it so well! Snoopy, you’re a great Mischief Teacher! :D
    Daisy recently posted..Monday Mischief: Sock Thief Turns Sock Hoarder!My Profile

  14. Ha-ha! It looks like Cosmo is getting his stretching in!
    Jen recently posted..Monday Mischief. It’s Hard To Find Good Help These DaysMy Profile

    • Haha Jen,

      Yep, it’s something like that – I think it’s funny the way he dives head first!!

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  15. LOL! I have seen many a dog do that little dive. Very cute!
    MelF recently posted..Puppy Mills: Do you know what size cage would your dog live in? I do.My Profile

    • Hi Mel,

      It seems I’m the only one not to have seen this before – I think maybe Cosmo keeps doing it cos he’s trying to teach me, I’m not feeling it just yet! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  16. That’s to funny. He must be learning from you.
    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  17. I love the slo mo shake! Great video, I’m now starting my day with a smile!
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..How Horses Help Mental Health TherapyMy Profile

  18. That was funny…but Cosmo, you better hangs out more with Snoopy so that you can continue being a mischievous pet like us ;)
    Kroten recently posted..Old Mischief : I Wish I Could Eat Those ThingsMy Profile

    • Hi Kroten,

      Yep, I think Cosmo still has more to learn, but he’s doing great with his Mischief – so proud of him!! :)

      Big Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  19. Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I do the SAME THING!! Love it!

    Have a great day pal!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • You do Dakota?

      I’d never even seen it until Cosmo was doing it and now I learn lots of you are doing it? What about your beautiful coat? Don’t you mind getting all messed up?

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  20. That’s so funny – Rita does the EXACT same thing when we go on walks when it’s hot out. At the beach, she immediately runs down and gets in the water (doesn’t swim… just walks out a foot or two and lays down – so funny). So I think she gets hot on our walks and there’s this one house where the grass is in the shade so stays damp and cool – she dives in just like Cosmo and rolls all around. Next best thing to plopping down in the water at the beach I guess!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: Not So MuchMy Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      I’d love to see Rita do it too!! Especially in the Sea!! :) Sometimes Cosmo does it on the way back just from a walk around the block, so he’s not even hot, think he just likes to mess about!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  21. hee hee, happy MM!
    Nichole recently posted..Monday Mischief: B-A-T-HMy Profile

  22. I’ve done that dive before…but only when there’s fox poo around :-)
    Misaki recently posted..More fun with EllieMy Profile

    • Oh Misaki,

      That’s gross!! You wouldn’t catch me messing up my fur with stinky fox poop!! I think Mum just wrote that last bit!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  23. What a great coach you are snoops. You can get that Cosmos going.

  24. BOL video Snoopy and you are one heck of a director. Loved it. Have a lovely Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Hog Blog, Mellow Yellow!My Profile

  25. Cosmo has a great mentor. There’s no surprise he’s eventually caught up with you.

    Hey, buddy. Long time no see. Love the post about the smile, by the way. I know, I know. I’m a little too late in praising your pretty picture. By the way, has anybody ever told you that you looked like a princess?

    Huggies and Cheese,

    haopee recently posted..Mischief Monday: Our Responsibility to Our DogsMy Profile

    • Haopee?

      A Princess? You know I’m a boy, right? How about a Prince? :)

      Glad you enjoyed my smile though :)

      Sending you all smiles and wags,

      Snoops :)

  26. Oh Snoopy! I wish I had a friend next door that would make mischief with me. There’s only one problem … you’re not joining in?
    Maybe next time you could both have a go? Especially just after a bath :-)
    *wag wag wag*
    Bella recently posted..The FearMy Profile

    • Hey Bella,

      I love your Mischief mind buddy – but when it comes to my coat I don’t like to get all messy!! I like to look nice for you Girlies!! Cosmo has no pride!! Tee Hee

      I just have to make myself busy with other kinds of Mischief!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  27. That must be some good grass, Snoopy. Cosmo knows a good thing when he sees it. You should roll, too!
    Flea recently posted..A Big Dog PartyMy Profile

    • Hi Flea,

      Well it does look kind of nice but I’m just not interested – in fact today when he did it I just sat down next to him and looked the other way – I’m so over it!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  28. Great Mischief you two :)
    Reminds me of the old lyrics…’Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’, ….Keep them doggies Rollin’ – Rawhide…..’ :)
    Have Fun

  29. My people always want me to walk, they don’t appreciate the rolling and grass! Happy Monday. Hailey (and Zaphod)
    Hailey and Zaphod recently posted..Lee complains too much – by ZaphodMy Profile

    • Hi Hailey and Zaphod,

      Oh Mum and I totally don’t get the rolling thing – she just laughs at Cosmo now and asks him when he’s ready to carry on – wish she was that patient at sniff time!! Though I guess that is every few seconds!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  30. Um, Snoopy. Should I tell you I do that too?
    Sage recently posted..Monday Mischief-More to my Beach TripMy Profile

  31. Me thinks Cosmo found some good “stink” perfume only a dog can love! Love the slow motion shake!
    Bark’n About recently posted..Monday Mischief: It’s All Becky’s FaultMy Profile

    • Hi Bark’n about,

      I gave him a good sniff afterwards and luckily he didn’t smell too bad or I just wouldn’t have wanted to run next to him anymore!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  32. Both my guys roll like that any chance they get!
    Taryn recently posted..You’ve Seen It Before…….My Profile

  33. I think it’s quite nice that you have a “running buddy” right next door Snoopy – even if he does like to “lawn dive” !!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • Hi Sammy,

      Yep, that’s a great name for it – lawn diving – maybe it should be an Olympic event cos it seems there’s a lot of other Doggies out there who do it too!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  34. Hahaha! Kyuss does the same as Cos. XD

    I think he must have a love-affair with that certain type of grass to only be doing it on that lawn. It sure looks lush!

    I actually posted a video of Kyuss doing the same not long back. Check it out on my blog if you like; it’s called Back Scratch. =D
    Pennypup recently posted..Boy, oh Boy!My Profile

    • Hi Pennypup,

      What is it with the lawn diving – seems like everyone’s getting into it? Huh? :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

    • Hey Pennypup

      I tried to check out that video but I could only navigate the center of the screen for some reason on your blog and I couldn’t find it :( Mischief going on? :)

      Snoops :)

  35. Oh my dog I just love you blog! I am so happy I found it on Bloghop. That Cosmo is sure a funny guy. I really enjoyed your post and am looking forward to more!
    Happy tail wags

  36. He looks like he’s having fun!
    Clowie recently posted..The Law of Diminishing ReturnsMy Profile

  37. Delilah does that! But she’s usually rolling in something smelly. :-)
