Monday Mischief – Pretty expensive mischief – Ooops!

Normally when I do mischief it’s low cost or mostly even no cost!  I’m considerate like that :)

Yep, I might run around with your slipper or your favorite shoe, but I won’t tear it up, it’s just about the fun….

Sometimes though, it goes a bit wrong, let me explain….

I was on alert at home, as usual, and I heard gardeners, these guys are very scary and have very noisy things in their hands.

They were actually across the street, but I was taking no chances, I had to protect my family!

Mum went outside to set up my grooming table, so she could groom me when they left and I started barking again, she knocked on the front window as she didn’t want me to bark -

Well, I didn’t know it was her and went a little crazy with the blinds!

It didn’t even taste good, so I spat it out behind the sofa! :)


I got away with it though – UNTIL – Dad came home and noticed it – doh!

There wasn’t even any getting out of it, cos he said the bite sized chunk was a bit of a give away that I did it – I so need a Cat!! :)

It cost Mum and Dad $80 to replace the blinds and now they’re pulled up every morning, just in case….

It’s actually way easier to patrol without the silly blinds in the way! :)

Sorry Mum, I didn’t mean to get so carried away – Ooops!


What’s the most expensive mischief you’ve got up to? :)


Before I go, did you see Brooks review of my book – he loves to read and now he’s gonna be even better at mischief – woohoo!! :)

  1. Let me see:
    The wall cost the people $75 to fix.
    Each of the crates I ate was like $150.
    The Lady’s fav shoes cost $150 to replace.

    I think that is all the expensive stuff. Have a great day!

    • Hi Guys,

      Oooh, now that’s a lot of costs, I’m super careful when I steal Mum’s shoes, I haven’t even damaged them a little bit, I have a favorite pair, I think it might be Mum’s favorite pair too as she’s quick to chase me! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  2. Bwhaha!

    Oh dear Snoopy, at least it wasn’t all of the blinds! hehe


    • Hi Guys,

      Well apparently I didn’t get any credit for leaving some intact as they couldn’t just replace the damaged ones – huh? :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  3. Do you consider eating a tennis ball mischief. If you do, then I guess I cost about $3,000 dollar. (not just once, but twice) I am sure glad she loves me.

  4. Oh, my, Snoopy – Shiloh once chased a cat up the blinds, pulling the entire structure down. He wasn’t adopted :(. Glad you spat out the piece of blind you bit.
    I need to replace drywall from Snowman, the Great Pyrenees – when he scratched to go outside, he also was very enthusiastic…a window I broke when I meant to knock on the wood to stop the dogs barking (not unlike your mom)….and a charger cord Waldo Puppy thought may be tasty. Oh, dear – you are all very loved indeed!

    • Hi Roberta,

      So if you chase a cat up the blinds, who gets the blame? Cos the Cat actually did the damage, right?! :)

      Yep, we’re sure lucky everyone loves us when our mischief gets a little crazy :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  5. Oh boy Snoopy! That is pretty expensive mischief that you got into this weekend, but do’t worry, when Leroy came to us we had to take the blinds down because he kept breaking them too:)

  6. I won’t even mention the stuff I blame on thunder but I do have a cat to blame for the blinds I wrecked. Once my person went outside without me to play with a cat and I didn’t like it one little bit. I only broke one slat – really.

  7. Woof! Woof! I don’t think it’s your fault … the blinds should always be up. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. 80 bucks for a minute mischief? I guess it’s the blinds’ fault for cracking under pressure Snoopy… As for me, I don’t keep track of the stuff they say I wrecked… heheh x0x0x Vanilla Bean
    Vanilla Bean recently posted..Monday Mischief: fussy kisserMy Profile

    • Hey Vanilla Bean,

      Yeah, I think they were flawed, I mean it’s not like I bit them super hard? Tee Hee

      Probably best you don’t keep track of your mischief, you never want the ‘evidence’ used against you!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  9. Yikes Snoopy that was some crazy mischief. You are right, you need a cat to blame. It works pretty well, believe us…

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Glad you think it’s worth getting one, now I just have to work out how to get one, Mum’s being really strict and still saying no – doh!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  10. Roooo pawsome mischief Snoopy! I have chewed two pairs of my humans glasses. She said htey weer about £100 each *waggy tail*
    Alfie |Alfie’s Blog recently posted..Monday Mischief: Two Entlebuchers in the SnowMy Profile

    • Hey Alfie,

      That’s some great, if expensive, mischief dude!! At least she couldn’t find you afterwards if she didn’t have her glasses on! Tee Hee

      big wags,

      Snoops :)

  11. I am sure there’s one thing your mom and dad learned today… how invaluable your mischief lessons are. LOL.

    Great News!!! My sister just got me the Mischief Monday Paperback!!! We’re ecstatic and we can’t wait for her to send it to us!

    Huggies and Cheese,

    • Hi Haopee,

      I’m super excited for you to get your book too, how cool!! It’s awesome to have Chooey and Buchi in the book!! :)

      Yep, my humans have been learning a lot about mischief over the last two years, they’re not masters of mischief yet though!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  12. Snoopy, not so good. It’s a good thing your parents are forgiving.

  13. Oh boy, I hope you didn’t get into too much trouble. :-( We all make mistakes, I’m sure mom and dad realize that Snoopy. Have a great day!!
    Jodi recently posted..Monday MischiefMy Profile

  14. Oh Snoopy. That was some pricey mischief. But glad it resulted in the blinds being up for now on so you can patrol easier. :-)
    Donna recently posted..The Bed Would Be So Much More Comfy….My Profile

  15. Whoaaaa….that was very expensive Snoopy!! You should act innocent to avoid being blamed ;)

    I am a turtle so I never break anything ;)

    • Hi Kroten,

      You’ve got it buddy – I did my best innocent look when Dad got home and noticed it, I’d been practicing all afternoon!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  16. Snoopy my furiend you are in the clear on this one. You were already upset, the blinds were drawn and you couldn’t see your Mum so SHE shouldn’t have knocked on the window! You were just doing your job…you had NO WAY of knowing that it was her! You are innocent my furiend!
    As for MY most expensive mischief? Try $300!! Yep…$300. I ate Mom’s new cell phone a few years back that she didn’t have insured. It cost her $300 to get the same one again!!!!
    After that she sure learned to have insurance on her phone!
    Have a great day!
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota
    caren gittleman recently posted..Book Review: The Fitzy Resolution by A.D. DeSenaMy Profile

    • Hey Dakota,

      Wow, $300 sure is expensive mischief buddy – Mum always tells Dad that we don’t understand the cost of things – phew!! :)

      You’re right, Mum took all the blame for my mischief, I’ve trained her well :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  17. Snoopy, you’d need a mighty big cat to convince Mum that bite wasn’t yours. :)
    Flea recently posted..Funny Bone Monday 7My Profile

  18. Wow Snoopy, that’s some pretty wild mischief! But tell your mom and dad that it could be worse – I destroyed the bottom of the coffee table in our family room when I was little – WAY more than $80 worth of mischief! And besides, you were just trying to protect your home and family, I was just being flat-out mischievous! ;)
    Daisy recently posted..Monday MIschief: Just Act NaturalMy Profile

    • Haha Daisy,

      Funny you say that, Mum is always telling Dad (who hasn’t had a Dog before) that it could be worse, much worse and I’m actually a good doggie – I give her the lines to say!! Tee Hee

      You’re such an awesome mischief master buddy :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  19. Wow that was some mischief Snoopy. I have ripped holes in the antique lace curtains in the sitting room and the ones in the bedroom. Peeps was not happy. What is a dog to do? Homeland Security is a very impawtant job. They should be grateful. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Dog House Blog, Truce You Got To Be Nuts!My Profile

    • Hey Molly,

      Wowzers – I’m not surprised your Mum wasn’t happy, I think they’re very attached to things that are old – but like you say if they put them in the way when we’re supposed to protect them – well, you know, accidents might happen!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  20. Snoopy,
    I never knew that you did interior design! I just don’t get why the peeps think its wrong. I have redesigned a couch, cushions, especially the silk ones from India (never liked them) all to the disapproval of my peeps, they just don’t get it…

    I think the window looks a lot nicer and much easier to see out of with the blinds up!
    wagging tee hee
    Maggie recently posted..Pets head to Vatican and Spain churches for blessingMy Profile

    • Haha Maggie,

      Yep, it sure is easier to see outside now – you’ve been super busy, I bet your pad looks pawsome now you’ve had a chance to put the finishing touches to the design!! :)

      Great mischief buddy,

      Snoops :)

  21. Oh no, that is some expensive mischief indeed. More light comes in without the blinds though so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise? Hehe, maybe not for $80!

    Oink oink,

    Katie recently posted..Piggy pelletsMy Profile

    • Hi Katie,

      Well, I for one like it with the blinds up, I could never understand why they wouldn’t want to see out properly anyway!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  22. Oh, goodness Snoopy! Oh well, 80 bucks isn’t soooo bad. Coulda been worse! We’ve been lucky with Rita and had no damage done with her. Our last dog scratched some serious marks into our hardwood floors though. Ugh. Some day we’ll have to have them sanded and refinished – and that will be super pricey!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: ‘Bout Time!My Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      That’s one of Mum’s most popular phrases when she’s defending me to Dad, “coulda been worse!” She’s pretty good to have on my side, and she does find it hard not to laugh – Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  23. Too bad they didn’t taste good. But at least now you have the bonus of a clear view out the window. Hey Snoops, thanks for putting up that mention of Brooks Books! He LOVED Mischief Master Class!
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..Mobile App Helps Dogs Get Fit and HealthyMy Profile

    • Hi Peggy,

      Yeah, they were like cardboard, no taste to them, so I promptly spat it out and Mum found it behind the sofa! Tee Hee – I was trying to hide the evidence! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  24. You definitely need a cat. My cat gets the heat for some of my mischief.

  25. Hehehe Snoops, looks like having the blinds up suits you better anyway:-)
    Misaki recently posted..more snow funMy Profile

  26. Looks like Mr. Cool’s mom is doing the mischief today–I mistakenly linked up the one I did last week. Aaack! Sorry. (the drama one is the duplicate)

    Oh Snoops, accidents happen when you are the protector of a homestead!! I’m sure your humans understand. :)

    Mr. Cool has been the best ever buddy…but the Little Weirdo has cost us new flooring and a new couch. Ugh.

    Have a lovely day!!

  27. Uh oh, Snoopy! That was some pricey mischief! Good thing you have the mischief master skills to handle this sort of situation :D
    Remy recently posted..Now What Should We Name Them?My Profile

  28. Hi Snoopy!
    Well, I don’t know how expensive it was but once, when we were at a friend’s house, the cactus plant “attacked” me and so I had to put the bitey on it…which destroyed it….and all the stickers got stuck in my mouth, which sent me to the vets. Does that count as mischief? If so, was it the cactus who caused it all?!?

    I don’t think your bite of the blinds was all that bad. They needed some perking up, don’t you agree?
    Oz the Terrier recently posted..Weekend Bust and ButtinskyMy Profile

    • Hey Oz,

      Wow, you got attacked by a Cactus?! Ouch, you did the right thing to fight back, can’t let them get away with it!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  29. Well, we can’t be perfect all the time.. Now you can pick the color of the blinds :) BOL xx00xx

    • Hi Mollie,

      Can you believe they didn’t even consult me with the color of the replacement, what do they know about interior design, plus I’m the one who’s been looking at them every day for over 2 years – doh!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  30. Hi Snoopy, that is pretty bad where you ate the blinds. Mom has custom ones in my window, like $400! Because I am always in the window and my cat Bert too, she has to keep them pulled up at all times about 18 inches so we don’t ruin them. Hope your dad does not take the cost out of your treat fund ;)
    emma recently posted..Stuffie Hospital | GBGVMy Profile

    • Hi Emma,

      I think I’m ok, I think it came out of Mum’s treat fund?! Tee Hee

      I sure hope your blinds stay safe, that would be a lot of missed treats!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  31. Oh wow … nice mischief Snoopy! Fancy having blinds that look a little bit like sticks though. I don’t blame you at all!
    I’ve not done too much damage, the last one was my human’s fault. You see, my humans bought their first ever sofa. It’s huge and comfortable and the most expensive thing they’ve ever brought for themselves.
    The human cut my nails, I ran off and there’s a big scratch … and a strategically placed cushion. My human hasn’t told the other one yet. She’s going to try and blame him … just waiting for the right moment *wag wag wag* (At least I’ve got one of them trained!)
    Bella recently posted..Snow JokeMy Profile

    • Hi Bella,

      Yeah how am I to know the difference between blinds and sticks? Good point!! Tee Hee

      Haha sounds like your Mum does stuff like my Mum, we’ve got them well trained :)

      Keep up the good mischief my friend,

      Your pal Snoopy :)

  32. Oh Hi Snoopy!! I ummmm, well, shuffling paws…I am kind’a embarrassed as I have not been over to visit like forever!! So sorry. I don’ think you have any accountability (VBP) for that blind tho’, your Mom should have known better…just sayin’…and having a cat like me won’t help…I seriously, never ever do Mischief…I am not sure I learned how OR I was punished really badly…I am 6 and so really a very calm ladycat. ALso, my Mom Linda is talking everyday with Jetty’s Mom Lori. I think your Mom is too. my Mom’s email addy is lcrodgers at sbcglobal dot net If your Mom wants to email her. paw pats, Savannah
    Savannah NanaMo recently posted..Technical Troubles On Tuesday…again!!!My Profile

    • Hi Savannah,

      Thanks for stopping by, here’s the thing on the mischief, you don’t actually have to do any, you just have to be there, so the humans have an element of doubt as to whether it really was me!! Tee Hee

      I’ll be sure to give your Mom’s address to my Mum – thanks :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  33. Good way to train them to pull the blinds up for you!
