Monday Mischief Master Class – Don’t be Shy to ask for What You Want! :)

I think sometimes humans are confusing, it’s hard to know what they really want?

Therefore, it’s important that we animals set a good example – let’s make sure there’s no confusion!!

Introducing Mischief Master Class Rule No. 20 – Ask For What You Want!  

(Yes, we really are on Rule No. 20, there’s a lot to being good at Mischief you know!! Tee Hee)

I’m even showing you a Case Study today:

Hey Mum, look over here!! Look What I’ve Got!!


When Dad uses the Grill we have a deal – I don’t bug him (even though it all smells wonderful) and he ALWAYS gives me a Hot Dog after everyone has had their Dinner!!  Good deal, right?!

This particular day I was in the mood for a Hot Dog, and there was no sign of the grill going on, so I wanted to make sure I was very clear about what I wanted!!  Tee Hee

You want me to give the Tongs back? Sure, just come and get them!! Tee Hee


Check out this little video of me playing chase with Mum around the garden – Gotta make sure she understands what I’m after, right?!


YouTube Preview Image


Mum thinks this picture of my feet in the air as I’m prancing around with the Tongs is super cute!


Mum, I’m not trying to look cute, I’m being assertive!! Doh!!


I wonder what Mischief everyone else has been up to this week?  Tee Hee :)

  2. I sure hope your dad came home and made you a hotdog after that “show” :D

    • Hi Charlie Rascal,

      I sure deserved it, right?! Tee Hee – I didn’t think about the fact he now had no tongs – cos I kinda put a few teeth marks on them!! I said they’d be fine, but he wasn’t having any of it – doh!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  3. Htodogs for everybody!

  4. Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

    I support your proactive stance (VBP)… I agree, you were clear and assertive… do you prefer beef or turkey hot dogs? We only have turkey ones here, as those are Rachel’s favorites!
    Jet recently posted..Our First Black and White SundayMy Profile

    Hope he is getting the grill

  6. Now that is a good way to get your paws on a hot dog Snoopy!
    Jen recently posted..Mellow Out Botanical Animal Flower Essence Winner AnnouncedMy Profile

  7. I agree with you Snoopy… humans are such complicated creatures; they have no clue as to what food makes them happy. Oftentimes, I have to remind them that beef or pork bbq is better than grilled chicken hot dogs. x0x0x Vanilla Bean
    p.s. the last photo is soo cute heheh
    Vanilla Bean recently posted..Monday Mischief: right party, wrong dressMy Profile

    • Hi Vanilla Bean,

      If I tried to understand them I’d drive myself nuts!! :) So I decided to just make sure they understand me – Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  8. If you didn’t get a hot dog after that then you’re people are the ones who are full of mischief.
    Bongo recently posted..What’s for Dinner?My Profile

  9. Brilliant Snoops – No doubts as to what you were after – you may not be able to say what you want but you sure know that your actions speak far louder than words :)
    Did your mom and dad give in to your hotdog needs?
    High five xx

    • Hi Helen,

      Yep, I like to be clear, especially when it comes to Hot Dogs – Yum Yum!! :) Mum never gives me any (cos she’s a vegetarian), but Dad keeps me supplied :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

      PS – Did you get your little puppy yet? :)

  10. You better get a hot dog after all that Snoops..Loved the video :) Have you recieved yor prezzie yet????
    Have a great day..Luv’s ya xxooxx

  11. That’s funny Snoopy! I LOVE stealing my humans things and running round the garden with them. She keeps tricking me though! I’ve just learnt to ‘bring it’ and she runs off shouting ‘bring it’, making me think I’m going for a walk and then just as I run past to get in front of her she grabs it and I have to practise ‘drop’. Good skills there, I hadn’t thought about the cooking things! *sniffing around for something to chew*
    Bella recently posted..My ball!My Profile

    • Hi Bella,

      Did you find something to chew yet?

      Don’t worry about all the command stuff, I fell for that too when I was a young pup, you’ll wise up and life will get lots easier, plus you need to work on your dodging skills, My Mum chases me around, but I can always outsmart her, backup and run fast her too fast so she can’t catch me – I think it’s SO much fun, I’m sure you’ll love it!! Just remember to steal something first or they never seem to want to play chase!!

      Have fun little Bella,

      Snoops :)

  12. Hey Snoopy!

    You are in a mischievous mood. I don’t think Dad is going to be too happy with you playing with his tongs like that. I hope you still got your hot dog.

    Take care,
    Colby recently posted..What’s The Worst Thing You’re Dog Chewed Up?My Profile

    • Hey Colby,

      I didn’t think it through too well, cos you’re right, Dad didn’t appreciate the Snoopy designer imprints I left on them – Oooops!! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  13. That is some excellent mischief Snoopy. Especially the chasing part. Freighter seems to have taken your lesson already. :)

  14. Good job at running with those tongs! You are very cute too, Woof! Woof!
    Abby Dabby Doo recently posted..AWW Mondays: Noooo! and Monday Mischief: Sneaky AbbyMy Profile

  15. I think you can be cute even while you’re being assertive, Snoopy! And you did a great job too – you gave Mom that ol’ double-punch: cuteness AND assertiveness all at once – how can she resist? Good work, mischief buddy! :D
    Daisy recently posted..Mommy’s Monday Mischief: Oh No She Didn’t!My Profile

    • Thanks Daisy,

      It’s taken quite a bit of practice and sometimes I wish Mum would take me a little more seriously and stop with all the ‘cute’ stuff!! I’m being a Mischief Maker who wants Hot Dogs Mum!! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  16. Ha ha that’s awesome. That’s the way to tell them what you want.

  17. That is pawsome advice buddy – and it works both in and outdoors! *waggy tail*
    Alfie – Alfie’s blog recently posted..Monday Mischief – Are We Nearly There Yet?My Profile

  18. Snoopy that is FABULOUS mischief!! OMD i need to live by you! Wouldn’t we be a pair? you could run with your tongs and I could rip up napkins! I bet our pawrents would get the idea then, wouldn’t they?
    Do you believe I NEVER get hot dogs! It’s time for me to start some mischief!
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      Buddy – what do you mean you NEVER get Hot Dogs – You’re so neglected – I’m coming right over to help you rectify this!! Get the Napkins ready!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  19. Oh Snoops, you’re hilarious! You look like a furry running skirt with tongs on one end.

    Huggies and Cheese,

  20. Looks like you were trying to get the message across for sure but what I wanna know is DID you wind up getting that hot dog after all???

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • Hey Sammy,

      Come on buddy, do you think they could resist? Ok, so we had a slight problem with a lack of useable Tongs after my Mischief, but I’m happy to report a Hot Dog was served – Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  21. We also wanna know if you got the hot dog? We are going to have to try that…maybe we will get a hot dog too!
    Dogs N Pawz recently posted..Black Dog Appreciation DayMy Profile

    • Hi Dogs N Pawz,

      Yep, it sure did work guys, in fact Mum even bought some new Tongs, so I think there’s gonna be lottsa grilling going on!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  22. You really are a little cantankerous :)
    Jessica @ YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..Black and White Sunday #9My Profile

  23. Snoopy, you are so cute! You should just be given a hot dog just because you’re so cute! You shouldn’t have to work so hard at it!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: Quiet Mischief??My Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      I think you need to speak to my Mum!! I have a feeling I’d be getting a lot more Hot Dogs if you were around here – Tee Hee – Does Rita get Hot Dogs, cos she’s super cute :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  24. I know how you feel Snoops. Peoples are so dense sometimes….that was a great way of telling them what you wanted. I hope you got TWO hotdogs for your efforts.
    Toby recently posted..Rules. Rules. Rules. Oh, and a Couple of Awards.My Profile

    • Hi Toby,

      You’re right, I should have been greatly rewarded, but somehow it didn’t happen with 2 Hot Dogs – doh!! Maybe I need to up my game? :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  25. Snoopy we agree, dont ask dont get. Now I have got the spice girls singing in my head…tell me what you want what you really really want…BOL. Have a great day.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Dog House Blog, Housekeeping.My Profile

    • Hey Molly the Wally,

      I’m too young to remember the Spice Girls, but Mum is easily old enough – Tee Hee – now she’s got that song in her head too!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  26. Snoopy you certainly know how to communicate with your humans. Us cats are a little more subtle and let me tell you…it doesn’t always work very well!

    Jodi recently posted..Monday Mischief…Delilah StyleMy Profile

    • Hi Jodi,

      Oh yeah, it was a lot of fun – jumping across the deck is one of my favorite bits, oh and pretending I’m gonna let Mum have the tongs, yeah right?! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re all having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  28. Loved seeing you bounding round the garden, looked super-fun :-)
    Misaki recently posted..HurdlesMy Profile

  29. You are a good manipulator Snoopy – I like your style cuz they can’t resist your antics!

    Emma recently posted..Dear Mom and Dad | GBGVMy Profile

  31. Don’t you hate it when you clearly tell your people what you want and because you don’t use words they act like they have no idea what it is you want? I hope you got a hotdog!
    Hailey and Zaphod recently posted..Evening Beach Fun – Are you ready to rumble?My Profile

  32. Oh, Snoopy…you are too much. I sure hope they got the message!!
    Sage recently posted..Mischief Monday: A Color ChangeMy Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      If they don’t understand this message, then maybe I’ll have to stop understanding what they want from me too? Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  33. Hi Y’all!

    Just hoppin’ by to say “hi”.

    Somehow, the chase never happens in our house. Not sure why. My Human says “bring” and I always do. Guess ’cause I know that I always get a really super reward. Think I’ll have to go re-think this entire thing!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
    Hawk aka BrownDog recently posted..Your Mountain Weather ReportMy Profile

    • Hey Hawk,

      You see in my house I don’t get the reward if I bring anything back, I just get a replacement toy that was lying around anyway! I’ve got an idea for you, how about you steal/borrow more stuff then you’ll get more super rewards?! Tee Hee

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  34. Right. Communication is the key to getting what you want :-)
    Jana Rade recently posted..Vet Visit From Hell? Nudge’s Acid RefluxMy Profile

    • Hi Jana,

      I can’t believe it took me so long to realize this, think of all the extra Hot Dogs I might have got, I’m 2 now, what a lot of wasted time – doh!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  35. Snoops..come enter my competiton..Youz well naughty :) xx00xx
    Mollie and Alfie recently posted..Naughty Pups and Kittie Award..My Profile

  36. At first I couldn’t see the tongs in all that hair! You sure do look adorable running around. I hope you got a hot dog after all. And some fun catch-me-if-you-can time!
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..The Frankie Fund and National Walk N Roll Dog DayMy Profile

    • H Peggy,

      Oh yes I sure did – I love it when Mum chases me around the garden, she’s nowhere near as fast and agile as me so it’s hard for her to catch me – I can even go in reverse you know?! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  37. Love the video! Looks like you are having fun! So……..did you get a hotdog???????
    PepperPom recently posted..Nutro Natural Choice Dog Biscuits – Product Review and Giveaway!My Profile

    • Hi PepperPom,

      Glad you enjoyed my video buddy!! Did you see how I pretended I was gonna hand over the tongs and then ran around the garden with them? Tee Hee

      Do you think they could resist giving me a Hot Dog? :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  38. Oh my lanta, Snoopy! What a naughty dog you are! Are you afraid of anything? Pop over to my blog and tell me what you’re afraid of to enter to win a treat!
    Flea recently posted..Contest – What Frightens Your Dog?My Profile

    • Hi Flea

      I prefer to call it mischievous rather than naughty – Tee Hee

      Oh, yes, I’m actually afraid of a few things – I hide behind Mum’s leg…..

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  39. You sure know how to have fun and do mischief at the same time Snoopy ;)
    Kroten recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – StretchingMy Profile

  40. Hello dear Snoopy!
    You are so clever. My dog is a female and she’s very smart but she does not get into any mischief. She’s quite lady like. I’d introduce you but she’s not fond of big dogs only ones her height and stature. One day I’ll send you a photo of Ma Cherie.
    Christine recently posted..20/20’s Kitty Cam segmentMy Profile

    • Hi Christine,

      Oh what a cute name – Ma Cherie!! I’d love to see her picture :) I’d love to play with her too, I’m very good with little Doggies too, I usually adjust my play style to accommodate them and Mum thinks I’m super cute when I put my paw out to the little Dogs to see if they want to play :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  41. Oh Snoopy! You rebel!!
