Monday Mischief – All you can eat cookie buffet – with a catch!

Not sure what it’s like in your house, but around here Mum’s really tight with the treats!

Sometimes I have to be a little imaginative to get some extra treats….

This week I decided to pretend I had a sore tummy in order to get a trip to the vets – yeah I know, risky move, but have you noticed how many treats they’re willing to give you when you’re there AND Mum doesn’t seem to mind!

I’d not been eating my food properly, was pretty lethargic for a few days and then tried to throw up in the garden…. That was the trigger, I was bundled in the car and off to the vets!

Now I think the treats are always on top of this counter?

Now I think the treats are always on top of this counter?


Things got a little scary when the nurse had finished asking questions and got the thermometer out, I don’t know who looked more scared, me or Mum?

Mum gave her a look like, “You’re really gonna try to use that on Snoopy?” and the nurse said “Oh yes, I remember, he doesn’t like this!” – By this point I was securely positioned right behind Mum on the bench and I turned to her and actually gave her a high five, which made her and the nurse start laughing! Phew!

Once the nurse left the room, I returned to operation ‘Find the Cookies’

Dum de dum, I know they're up here!

Dum de dum, I know they’re up here!  Can you see them?


Mum says I look like a human in a fluffy suit when I counter surf like this!

Tah Dah! Here they are!  Doh!  The lids on the jar, I'll have to wait for the vet!

Tah Dah! Here they are! Doh! The lids on the jar, I’ll have to wait for the vet!


Once the vet came in I played ‘Super Scaredy Cat’ and you won’t believe how many cookie bribes I got!  It worked a treat, plus when she was done I went back over to the counter and convinced her to give me some extras as a reward!  Tee Hee

Then she told Mum I was fine and probably just had an upset tummy, though Mum found that hard to believe given the amount of cookies I’d just inhaled!  Tee Hee

Do you get unlimited cookies when you go to the vet?  Do you plan extra visits just for the cookies? :)

    Snoopy, you are genius dude! Why didn’t I think of that. Will try it this week and report back! No wonder your are the Master of Mschief. I bow-wow to thee sir.

    • Haha Slimdoggy,

      I can’t wait to hear how you get on buddy and see how many treats you get!

      Remember, if they bring anything scary out hide behind your Mom!

      Good luck,

      Snoops :)

  2. Slimdoggy says:

    PS. Ope u feel ok.

  3. Hiya Snoops. You do look like a human. That or a grey and white chewbacca ;)
    I get LOADS of treats at the vets and I play the nervous game too, always works. Talking of which, I think it’s time for my boosters *wag wag wag*

    • Hi Bella,

      Good luck with your boosters, you should get like a whole jar of treats for those cos they actually spear you with a needle! Work it girl, work it! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  4. We rarely get treats at the vets, and never if we are there for a tummy upset. You have a nice vet. WTG Snoopy! We are definitely going to bring up the lack of treats the next time we go to our place.

      That sounds outrageous, feel free to print out my account if you need evidence when you plead your case! Tee Hee

      Snoops :)

  5. I am too scared of the vet to even play to get more cookies. Sometimes I won’t even take the one he offers me. Hailey (and Zaphod who hasn’t been to the vet enough to know)
    Hailey and Zaphod recently posted..Black and White Sunday – The QueenMy Profile

    • Hi Hailey,

      I understand buddy, but it really is worth overcoming your fear just to eat the cookie! Mum says I’m an emotional eater and when I’m at home I won’t eat if something isn’t quite right, but at the vet I know those treats aren’t gonna stay on offer for long so I take them whilst I can! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  6. You are LUCKY! There’s treat jars at the vet but not all the time I get to have a cookie. You are clever … Happy Monday Mischief. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    • Hi Sugar,

      You mean sometimes you go all the way there and they don’t even give you a treat?! That is just plain wrong – you need to protest buddy! I find counter surfing (which I never do at home by the way) sure tells them you’re not leaving until you get rewarded! Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  7. Going to the vet is the best. I always get lots of treats and loves. I hadn’t thought of counter surfing for extra cookies though. I’ll have to give it a try next time. Maybe my vet doesn’t keep the lid on the cookies.
    Bongo recently posted..Two Fish and Five LoavesMy Profile

    • Hi Bongo,

      Here’s a tip, stay behind your Mom when the tech or the vet are in the room, as soon as they leave do your counter surfing, it works a treat! Tee Hee – Get it? :)

      Good luck buddy,

      Snoops :)

  8. Definitely a risk move – you never know why they are going to decide you’ll feel better with a shot!
    BZ Dogs recently posted..Fashion SenseMy Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      Yeah you’re right, although I have my vets office very well trained, they know not to come near me with anything scary unless there really is no other choice – they can tell how scared I am! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  9. Aww you and Kirby are on the same vet schedule! He is going to the vets today! Although I must say although your mischeivious I bet your still better behaved!
    xoxoxo leah and kirby!
    kirbysdawgblog recently posted..The cup songMy Profile

    • Hi Kirby,

      I hope you’re ok buddy and they didn’t do anything scary to you! And of course I also hope you got lottsa treats too! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  10. Our vet gives us so many treats, mom gets a bit upset because she says we don’t need them but we take them. Even with the treats, I don’t like going there and would rather stay home with less treats. Hope your tummy feels better!
    emma recently posted..Intermediate Counter Surfing 201 | GBGV | Monday MischiefMy Profile

    • Haha Emma,

      What’s with the ‘needing’ the treats at the vets? My Mum frowns too, but I just ignore her and take every last one of them, I think they’re like medicine? Tee Hee

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  11. You lucky dog! No treats in the vet exam rooms for us… they’re all at the counter when the humans go to pay!
    Sue at Talking Dogs recently posted..Monday Mischief: Monkey MurderMy Profile

    • Hi Sue,

      At least they have them I guess, I don’t think my Mum could cope with any more distractions at the counter when she’s trying to pay, she finds it challenging enough! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  12. Very risky move, but all seemed to work out well!!! Hope you’re feeling better.

  13. Toby says: Man Snoopy that was a risky move. Sometimes I get a treat at the end, but I didn’t last Friday when I went for my shots. However my mom told my vet I eat grass and throw up a lot, so now I get to eat twice a day! AND she said I didn’t look fat anymore! I can have treats at home as long as I don’t put on weight! Hurray!
    PS. We hope you feel better Snoopy!

    • Hey Toby,

      That was a great result that you can have treats at home now too! At least you won’t have to risk a trip to the vets too buddy! :)

      Hope the shots weren’t too bad – ouch!

      Big wags

      Snoops :)

  14. I think I want a referral to YOUR vet, Snoopy! I love my doctor, but I must admit, she’s pretty stingy with the treats! :(
    Coralee and Finn recently posted..Monday Mischief: RebelMy Profile

    • Hi Finn,

      I’ll get working on it straight away buddy, you shouldn’t have to put up with such stingy behavior dude! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  15. Wow Snoopy, what a brave guy you are. We get a couple extra cookies for going to the vet. One time we got frozen yogurt.
    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..We’re back!!My Profile

    • Hi Roxy,

      You got frozen yogurt at the vets? Wow, you have some kinda 5 star treatment going on there buddy! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  16. Cool move Snoops, that had never crossed my mind to play sick to go to the Vets to get cookies..Genius.. Have a super Mischief week xx00xxx

      It makes me wag to know you think I may be a genius! :) Now I just have to figure out a way to come and visit you! :)


      Snoops :)

  17. Oh yes we get lots of treats and although Pip hoovers them up you can’t fool me into liking the blood suckers. Nope I won’t be coned but Pip with her ancient bones and bad eyes nearly gets a whole jar. Well done Snoopy. We are in awe of your counter surfing. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Thanks Molly,

      I’m impressed myself with how well I’ve mastered the old counter surfing as I’m not allowed to practice at home!

      I hope you had a marvellous monday too molly!

      Snoops :)

    To bad you didn’t hide that thermometer. We don’t like where it goes

    • Hi Guys,

      You’re right, for the sake of the next little guy I should have hidden it, but I was too scared to even touch it! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  19. Great mischief Snoopy pal…I’ll do almost anything for a cookie, but not make an extra trip to the Vet…Glad it wasn’t anything serious

    • Hi Gizmo,

      Maybe you don’t have such strict rationing as I have going on here buddy, frankly it’s ridiculous! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  20. You da dog, Snoopy! Lay low on the treats, though. You don’t want to get a REAL tummy ache!

  21. What a clever doggie you are Snoopy.
    Check out the sunrise this morning :

  22. Aww you tricky boy ;) You really are the master!
    Novroz recently posted..To Be The FastestMy Profile

  23. The treats are well guarded here at my house too, Snoopy. But you are right! I get tons of treats at the vets and for some reason Ma doesn’t bark about it at all. BOL I have never planned an extra trip to the vets though, but maybe I should.
    *high paw*

  24. Adorable! I hope you are feeling better. Kelly usually spits out the treats at the vet, she must think they are medicine.
    peggy frezon recently posted..4 Frosty Paws travel packs Giveaway!My Profile

    • Hi Peggy,

      Uh oh, poor Kelly she’s missing out! Sometimes though I know they do sneak medicine into treats, but not the ones from the jar, so I focus on those! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  25. Snoopy, first, we hope you are ok! We are worried about you!
    Second, if you are ok your plan for extra cookies is PURE GENIUS!! That is the BEST mischief ever! I am going to have to try that!

    • Hi Dakota,

      Don’t worry Dude, I was fine and even more fine after all those extra cookies! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day

      Snoops :)

  26. You do look like a human in a fluffy suit! Maya never gets on the counters at home but she does at the vet and at the register counter at PetCo. Pierson is terrified of the vet and, therefore, too nervous to eat any of the cookie bribes they try to give him.
    Dawn recently posted..New Dog Travel Accessories from Pet Auto SafetyMy Profile

    • Hi Dawn,

      Poor Pierson…. :( I’m the same, I never counter surf at home, but when we go out I’m all over it, it started at blogpaws as they had goodies on the exhibitor tables and they thought it was funny when I put my paws up, now I’m ‘trained’ to do it! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  27. Thats great that you got so many cookies! Your vet sounds so nice! !!!! Joker gets tons of cookies when he goes to the vet, but he doesn’t enjoy going there anyways. =)
    Francesca Villa recently posted..Clicker Tip #4My Profile

    • Hi Francesca,

      I’m with Joker (great name!) – I still don’t like going to the vets, but sometimes you just gotta be brave when the cookie craving hits! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  28. Snoopy, I’m glad you were able to successfully pull off the “I’ve got an upset tummy” trick and get all those cookies at the vet (while still managing to avoid any shots and the dreaded thermometer!). High five indeed!

    Rita is usually too worried to enjoy the cookie buffet at the vet’s office. :(
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: Were Our Bunnies Robbed??My Profile

    • Hi Jackie

      Thanks for the high five, I can tell you it wasn’t easy, I did really get quite nervous and thought I’d blown it when the thermometer came out – that’s why I gave Mum a high five too for saving me! :)

      I hope Rita can get over her fear and enjoy the cookie buffet too! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  29. You’re brilliant, Snoopy! My treats at home are so tiny, they’re practically microscopic. At the vet, they have NORMAL sized treats. Sometimes the vet breaks them in half, but then she gives me BOTH PIECES! Score!

    Love and licks,
    Genevieve recently posted..Time Well SpentMy Profile

    • Hi Cupcake,

      Sounds like your Mom is just as stingy as mine, with my dentastix I know she doesn’t buy the right size for my weight – so not fair! She says it’s so I don’t get fat – huh? Clearly the vet doesn’t think I’m fat! :)

      Good luck getting your fair share buddy,

      Snoops :)

  30. Snoops, I’m glad you’re okay! Upset tummies are no fun….
    Champ recently posted..Someone did a Little Shopping….My Profile

    • Hi Champ,

      Thanks for your comment buddy, I’m feeling really good now, I think I was under-cookied! That is a real condition, right?! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  31. lol, yes we play Operation Cookie all the time! Our favorite tricks are to act like we’re very scared (vet always gives us treats then) or to be really boisterous, in which case the vet gives us treats just to shut us up! Humans are such suckers :) Love, Hannah and Charlie.
    Human Rescues Dog recently posted..Dog Training Schools vs “Unschooling” Your DogsMy Profile

  32. I’ve never considering bringing in the vet to help get hold of cookies! I like that you think outside the box and I’m pleased to hear you aren’t poorly sick after all!

  33. I love going to the vets cos every cuddles me and gives me treats:-)
    I hoe you’re feeling better though Snoops!
    Misaki recently posted..Too big to play:-(My Profile

  34. Great plan for getting extra cookies Snoopy, and glad you skirted the evil thermometer AND were feeling better not long after you tricked your mom out of those treats. :-)
    Donna recently posted..Attempting to Knab Tumor Number ThreeMy Profile

  35. Oh Snoops! Glad you’re ok… that sure WAS a risky move! Rocco’s pretty good at working the treats too. Hmmm, maybe that’s why he’s always so ready to do LOTS of training. LOTs of treats!
    Your pals,

  36. Geez, I just went to the Vet last week to get my microchip and they didn’t give me nuttin’! And the Vet tech even said I didn’t flinch! That deserves a cookie or two, don’t you think?
    Parker recently posted..A Shady Spot | Black and White SundayMy Profile

  37. I’m glad you are feeling better. Our vet doesn’t give out lots of treats, but the dogs know where they are. :-)

    Hope your “tummy ache” is better.

    • Hey Kris,

      You’ve got me thinking, if I put on some clothes do you think I’ll get access to the main cookie reserve? How cool would that be?! :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  39. Chester and Gretel Do get extra treats when they go to the vet but really no more than the extra they get when we do a photo shoot… they probably wouldn’t fake sick to go to the vet like you :)
    Jessica@YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..Peanut Butter, Banana, Coconut Kong StuffingMy Profile

  40. Our vet doesn’t hand out treats – we obviously have the wrong vet. I hate the thermometer, but I had to give one of my cats some sympathy when he pointed out that the vet uses one the same size for him! Ouch!
