Monday Mischief – Work or Mischief?

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments wishing me well at the vets the other day.

The good news is we now know that I’ve been limping due to a partial tear of my ACL.

I can’t imagine how I did it!  Tee Hee

Mum said it was probably caused by too much mischief?  Huh?

This is not mischief Mum, I have a very important job to do!

This is not mischief Mum, I have a very important job to do!

 

In this little video you can see me busy causing mischief at work protecting my family from the lawn mower on the other side of the fence! :)

Does anyone else get accused of mischief when you’re actually working really hard? :)

  1. I love the video…you’re soooo cute.
    Well, I have to admit that I often accuse my baby turtles of mischief too, even though they said they were trying to help.

    • Thanks Novroz,

      I imagine your baby turtles can be very helpful around the house – mischief? Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. We hope you are feeling better soon! Lee and Phod

    • Thanks Guys,

      For the last few days I’ve actually been feeling great and not even limping, so I’m keeping my paws crossed that I’m on the mend! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  3. Good thing you are on the job Snoopy!

    Sorry to hear about your leg. Hope you are better soon.

    • Thanks Browndawgs,

      Well, it’s not like Mum guards the fence, she’s useless and just ignores the lawnmower!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  4. We protect mommy and daddy from the dogs on the other side of our fence so we know exactly what you are talking about!

  5. Good job protecting Snoopy! Those lawn mowers can be scary!!

    Sorry to hear about leg! We know how that goes all too well here! Hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. Oh, Snoopy, anything “tearing” inside doesn’t sound good. It doesn’t look like it is slowing your mischief down too much though. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
    Jessica@YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..How Do I Capture the Essence of My Pet on Film?My Profile

    • Thanks Jessica,

      I’ve put the word out to all the Squirrels AND lawnmowers that I’m still just as fast so don’t try anything! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  7. That’s to bad about your leg, I hope it heals up real soon. A dog has got to do their job but maybe until your leg gets better you should let the mower protecting duty go or at least do it from a resting position ;)
    Misty Shores Chesapeakes recently posted..Monday Mischief ~ Get Your Nose Out of ThereMy Profile

    • Thanks Misty,

      I’d love to take a break, but then what? It’s gonna scale the fence and come over! We can’t have that – I’ll just have to carry on I think! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Woof! Woof! Snoopy you got to be extra careful. Oh my a tear ACL. My human dad got that 3x surgery and for a dog it is much harder. So forget about the lawn guys. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar
    SUGAR: Golden Woofs recently posted..Bark In The Park on Black n White SundayMy Profile

    • Hi Sugar,

      Your Dad had surgery 3 times! Yikes! I hope he is better now! Luckily so far I’m escaping surgery, gotta keep my paws crossed it stays that way! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  9. Eek, a partial ACL tear? That’s got to hurt :( Are you opting for surgery?
    Jen recently posted..Reward CalmnessMy Profile

    • Hi Jen,

      It did hurt at the time and kinda on and off it’s hurt, but right now it doesn’t and I can do normal stuff, so my vet doesn’t recommend surgery at this moment, but I’m under surveillance, I mean monitoring! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  10. Us dogs are so misunderstood sometimes. Mischief, my foot! You were doing a very important job Snoops.
    Bongo recently posted..Dinner at LastMy Profile

    • Thanks Bongo,

      It’s good to have your support buddy, sometimes it can be demoralizing when the humans don’t appreciate all the effort! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. aww snoopy you are sooo cute defending your territory, just like Kirby :) Lawnmowers are the worst!!!

    • Thanks Kirby,

      I’m glad to hear Kirby is also doing a great job, hope he gets well rewarded cos it’s not easy! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  12. Great job, Snoopy! I like your deep bark. That doesn’t look like mischief to me at all! Woof! Woof! Sorry about your torn ACL, that does sound painful.
    Abby Dabby Doo recently posted..Monday Mischief: Cats Rule by Spunky DoodleMy Profile

    • Thanks Abby Dabby Doo

      Glad you like my deep bark, I think it makes me sound all big dog like and scary for the lawnmower! Tee Hee

      My knee has been painful, but right now it’s not hurting :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  13. Absolutely Snoopy…I’ll be hard at work warning Momz about stranger danger and she’ll tell me I’m just barking to make mischief…Hoomins just don’t know how hard we dogs works…Hope you’re feeling better soon pal…Happy MM!

    • Thanks Gizmo,

      I wish humans had some kinda manual to read, cos it takes a lot of training to get them fully trained! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  14. Sorry about that ACL; it sounds really painful.

    And great job pawtecting your family, Snoopy!

    Keep on wagging,

      I do my best to keep the family safe from lawn mowers, they’re always trying to get in!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  15. I think that lots of humans just don’t recognize danger like we good dogs do, but I keep barking and howling, sometimes it gets me in trouble but I am doing it for protection! Hope your acl issue can heal quickly, I don’t know much about those things.
    emma recently posted..Party Pets | GBGV | Mischief MondayMy Profile

    • Thanks Emma,

      Sounds like you do an awesome job of security at your place, despite the lack of appreciation! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  16. Oh, Snoopy, an acl tear is no good at all! At least you now know what has caused the limping. Keep us posted on what’s next at the vet.
    Sue at Talking Dogs recently posted..Bark in the Park – Largest Midwest Dog FestivalMy Profile

    • Hi Sue,

      Yep, it’s good to know what the problem is – right now I’m not limping any more, so my vet is hoping I’m on the mend, so as of now we’re not doing anything different and Mum’s keeping an eye on me (no change there, hey?!) :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  17. Great work Snoopy! I get accused of mischief every time I try to redesign somebody’s shoe! Who needs matching shoes, anyway?!

      Sounds like your design skills are under valued, you’re probably ahead of your time, one day they will be masterpieces! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  18. Sorry about your ACL. Very painful. Listen to your MOm and vet. Good thing you can still protect the yard. Heal quick – DogDaz

  19. But…..you have to protect your domain, right? I hope you feel better soon. Do what they tell you so you can heal fast.
    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..Another great day hikingMy Profile

    • Thanks Roxy,

      I sure do have to protect my domain, my family’s in there! :)

      So far so good with the healing – Yay!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  20. Oh Snoopy, that really stinks about your leg! Is there anything they can give you for it, or did they restrict your activity? :-( Now that’s Monday Mischief.
    Jodi recently posted..Stinky and NeedyMy Profile

    • Hi Jodi,

      Luckily I’m not on any restricted activity and right now I’m not even limping any more, so it’s going really well, just keeping my paws crossed that I’m over the worst – I’m being closely monitored – Doh!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  21. Snoopy you are definitely the Master of Mischief – sorry to hear about your injury and I hope you heal up soon.
    Holly @ A Pet’s Life recently posted..Monday Mischief: Nighttime AdventuresMy Profile

    • Thanks Holly,

      I’m thanking you for your kind healing words and more importantly the compliment about my mischief mastery! Tee Hee

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  22. Snoopy! What a nice deep bark you have! My dogs’ ears went up at the sound of it! Keep up the good work!
    Flea recently posted..Funny Bone Monday, 22My Profile

    • Thanks Flea,

      Lots of you seem impressed with my deep bark, I may be a fluffy thing but I’ve got a big dog bark! :)

      Mum says I’m a real chicken when it comes to action though, I don’t listen to her!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  23. Ooh, Snoopy – I hope you don’t have to have surgery on the ACL. My B&W Sunday pic was of my sister Sally in a cast from ACL surgery…ouch!
    SlimDoggy recently posted..In case of EMERGENCY: 6 TipsMy Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      I’m sending Sally lots of hugs, I hope she gets better soon! Yep, I’ve got my paws crossed that I can avoid surgery, so far so good! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  24. Love how waggy your tail is:-)

    • Thanks Misaki,

      It’s always wagging cos I’m always a happy doggy, even when I’m working! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  25. Snoopy you have one of the MANLIEST barks I have ever heard!! Soooooooo deep! You don’t shriek and sound like a little girl like I do! BOL!
    OH MAN a torn ACL???? Mom and I are so sorry!! What do you have to do for that pal? We are hoping that it doesn’t hurt!!!
    Sending you TONS of love and licks!

    • Hey Dakota and Mom,

      You really bark like a girl? Can’t you work on that buddy? :)

      Thanks for all the love and licks :) Right now my leg isn’t hurting so I’m not limping, my vet is hoping I’m on the mend, so no special restrictions at the moment, I’m just being monitored – Mum will probably use this as an excuse to monitor me forever! Doh!

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  26. Two French Bulldogs says:

    Ouch! Poor baby. Do you have to wear a brace or anything? Good job patrolling the monster by the fence
    Benny & Lily

    • Thanks Benny & Lily for recognizing my good job at patrolling the monster fence, you get it, my Mum still doesn’t!

      Luckily right now I don’t have to wear a brace, as it would restrict my movement and could result in pressure point sores, as I seem to be doing well without one, we’re holding off on that and I’m still happy every day! Yay :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  27. So sorry to hear about your torn ACL. I hope it heals soon. It’s not going to be easy since those darned lawn mowers will be out more. :(
    Dawn recently posted..Pierson SpeaksMy Profile

    • Thanks Dawn,

      Seems to me there’s one out in someone’s garden every day! I only get excited if I think it’s trying to get over the fence though! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  28. It’s hard work being Defender of the Realm! Rita knows how important that work is! But I hope you can take a few days off from your “job” and feel better!

    • Hi Jackie,

      A dog’s work is never done, but luckily I’m feeling really good at the moment, so I’ve got it all under control – well, it’s not like anyone else is gonna do it! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  29. Bawahawhwaaw I do that Snoops, bark my head off at the fence :) xx00xx

    • Hi Mollie,

      I’m not barking at the fence budding, I’m barking at the naughty lawn mower – gotta let it know how tough I am! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  30. Snoopy you are doing a great job but we worry about your ACL so maybe could you sit in one spot and bark extra loud to scare the evil mower away? Anyway, super cute video and that mower will definitely stay on its own side :)

    • Hi Amy and Toby,

      I could try and bark from just one spot, but it’s super difficult and I don’t know if I’ll manage to stay still? Glad you think the mower will be staying over there, I’ve been having nightmares that I didn’t bark loud enough and it might try to sneak over! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  31. Good job Snoopy! I can breathe easier knowing that your family is safe from the evil lawnmower.
    Peggy Frezon recently posted..The Big Question: How’s Kelly Handling it?My Profile

      I always give a big sigh of relief when it stops it’s roar and I know I’ve scared it away! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  32. We don’t see any mischief Snoopy only Homeland Security. You take it easy pal and don’t go getting anymore Sports Injuries. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Dogton Abbey, Was Flossy The Flapper Really A Slapper?My Profile

    • Thanks Molly,

      But I just have to mention, it’s not a sports injury, it’s probably more like a work injury, so I think I’ll try to claim compensation from Mum! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  33. You know what they say about all work and no play, right Snoopy? Take it easy on your owie and get better soon.
    Bethany recently posted..Leo’s (Little) Excellent AdventureMy Profile

    • Thanks Bethany,

      Are you saying I’m gonna become dull? I’ll have to practice some more mischief instead! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  34. OUCH, Snoopy. That’s no fun and I’m sure it cuts down your mischief time. I find there’s entirely too many humans walking by our house with their dogs, so I let them know what I think about it. How dare they?
    Sage recently posted..What’s HappeningMy Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      Glad you keep on top of all that congestion outside your house buddy, but it must be a lot of work!

      I’m trying not to let my injury interfere with my mischief! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  35. Tearing your ACL must have been quite painful Snoopy, so I’m glad to hear you are on the mend. I loved the video of you doing your job protecting your place.
    Barb recently posted..Weekly Photo Challenge: UpMy Profile

    • Hi Barb,

      It was pretty sore at the time and I couldn’t get up properly, but I’m doing much better now, so we’re hoping I’m on the mend! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  36. You really let that law mower have it! Good work. I think the ACL will heal better with rest, though, so you may want to dial it down for now. I always alert my Mom when the mailman comes, by jumping, barking, sliding, running in circles, and throwing myself against the door. I’m pretty sure he’s trying to kill me, but Mom doesn’t believe me.

    Feel better soon, buddy.

    Love and licks,

      I’m not even sure what else you can do buddy to get your Mom’s attention – wowzer! Sometimes humans don’t appreciate how much danger is around!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  37. My Delia wishes you were here to keep our yard safe from lawnmowers! We’re sending well wishes for your leg.
    Lisa B recently posted..Monday Mischief-Goodbye SnoopyMy Profile

  38. Sassy the cat here;
    Snoopy, really barking at the lawn mower. Even cats know that it’s not a really important noise. Be cool dude, go after the burglars.

    • Hi Rebecca and Sassy,

      You cats can scale the fence and assess the danger a bit easier than we can, I just have to go with my gut feeling and it says “Bark”!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  39. Hey Snoopy wow you have a deep voice…Ma was a little surprised at your voice and fell in love with ya a little bit more she says :) Great job in protecting your Ma! I usually think it’s best for Ma’s sake that we avoid outside when the lawnmovers are in our backyard or the neighbors cause I think it scares Ma so I am just trying to be sensitive to Ma’s fears ya know. So what are the pup docs gonna do about your injury? We are sending hugs and prayers to ya that it can heal on it’s own and super fast too!!
    Max’s Mom recently posted..Our Friday Afternoon Fun Continued…My Profile

    • Hi Max and your Mom,

      Ooooh, I’m all excited that I got your Mom to love me a little bit more with my big bark! :)

      The vet has said he thinks my knee is trying hard to mend itself and I should be able to self regulate my activity, which is working well and for a whole week now I haven’t been limping – I’ve got my paws crossed I will be fully fit again in no time! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  40. All the time – they just don’t get it do they!!

  41. Speaking of mischief…I am now getting in trouble for some. ma played your video a bit too loud, I heard your big-dog bark and I am now barking like a mad man all over the house looking for you. Good grief. Humans. You were just doing your job as I am doing mine.
