Monday Mischief – I like an audience!

I love it when the mail man stops by our house!  Often he brings a package, sometimes there’s even something for me….. Mum said this wasn’t one of those times, but I wasn’t convinced…..

After Mum had unpacked the box she put it by the back door ready for popping into the recycling bin.

Then she went back to doing things in the kitchen, I decided I should sneak a little look in the box – it turns out there WAS something in there for me – I picked up some of the packing and decided to take it into the lounge to show Mum my new toy!  Where’s the fun in mischief if you don’t have an audience?! :)

Can you see what I found?  It's the plastic wrap that protects the 'stuff' in the box - Mum said it's dangerous for Doggies and it's NOT a toy! Doh!

I decided, if I could just get outside with it, Mum would never catch me!

Doh!  This isn't working out as planned!  No matter how hard I stare at this door it's not opening and Mum's about to pounce on my toy!

Needless to say Mum stole my toy from me and my game was over – doh!


Does anyone else like an audience when they’re ‘performing’ their mischief too?! :)

  1. I like to do most of my mischief when nobody’s looking. The problem is that my people caught on to that and now they make me go into dog jail every time they leave the house.

    • Hey Bongo

      Oh no, not dog jail!! I banished my jail to the garage, wish it was totally gone, but I haven’t been in it for years! Maybe if you promised to only do your mischief when they were looking they’d stop the whole jail nonsense, worked for me!

      Good luck dude,

      Snoops :)

      • Hi, I just stumbled on your blog, and am so glad I did. Your photos bring back memories of 2 of our long-ago Beardie mixes — as does your penchant for mischief!
        If your mom, dad, or siblings like to read dog books, have them check out my website, where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, Funny Tails: Adventures and Misadventures in Living with Pugs. Readers tell me it’s pretty funny, and it is suitable for anyone who can read, as well as for reading aloud.

        • Hi Maija

          Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed reading about our mischief! :)

          I’ll have to check out your book for sure,

          Wags to all,

          Snoops :)

  2. You’re supposed to hide while you are being mischievous and then show the results with pride. Our back door won’t open when we stare either.

    • Hi M. K. Clinton

      That’s what I used to do when I was little, but I find more fun these days in performing to an audience! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  3. Sadie loves an audience for her mischief. She’ll come running over to me with her latest stolen sock or tissue or bottle, etc. She also tries to steal the package stuffing, but she gives it up quick when I start popping it.
    Mary from YourDesignerDog recently posted..Memorial Day MischiefMy Profile

    • Hi Mary

      Sadie thinks like me! :) I avoided Mum popping it on me as I just gave it up as soon as she asked for it :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. Hehe! Oh Snoopy. That’s so funny.

    Lots of Woofs from Earl and I at Earl’s World!

  5. LOL We never get to play with toys like that either. Woofs from Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie

  6. My sister Bailie likes plastic like you do too. Yesterday she ran with Mom and then was home alone while Katie and I got a walk but Mom didn’t shut the closet door. Bailie found a nice plastic bag and shredded it all over the living room so we had a nice surprise when we got home. Mom was not amused! Happy Memorial day!
    Emma recently posted..Memorial Day StarsMy Profile

    • Hey Emma

      Uh oh, Bailie sure left a mess, I’ve done that with plastic bags before, it’s fun, but Mum doesn’t seem to think so!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  7. That toy wouldn’t last long with my Jimmy! The second his tooth punctured it, and it made a popping noise, he would be so scared he would never touch one of those again!
    Taryn recently posted..Monday Mischief: SNAKE!My Profile

    • Hi Taryn

      I’d be the same, I’m not sure if any bits popped, (maybe quietly), cos if it had been loud I’d have been outta there in a flash! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Hi Y’all!

    Yep, Humans can always find a way to spoil the fun! … Darn door!!! didn’t help either!

    Y’all come by now,

  9. Jack mostly likes stuffies as toys and will get into mischief with or without an audience.

  10. Uh Oh….better not play with that. These two prefer mischief when no one can see.
    Mary recently posted..It’s been a busy weekendMy Profile

    • Hi Mary

      Yep, that’s what Mum said too! Doh! I used to like secret mischief, but I’m enjoying an audience way more! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. Snoopy, you are just too cute, carrying that new “toy” around with you. My mom would have done the exact same thing! In fact, she did something like that yesterday when I found a nice tissue on the ground outside!

  12. Snoopy, mums like their doggies alive. No plastic packaging for doggies.

    • Hey Flea

      That told me! Mum wonders if you can come over when the UPS guy delivers the boxes and tell me the rules too?! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  13. There are times Elka is playing some game with her toy, and actually stops when she notices somebody watching! This is a “real” toy, though, that I gave her on purpose ;)
    Jen recently posted..Dog Bite Prevention (though sometimes, you can’t)My Profile

    • Hey Jen,

      I understand how Elka feels, sometimes I stop doing things when I realize Mum is spying on me, however, this wasn’t one of those times, I was loving the attention – Tee Hee!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  14. Oh no Snoopy. Game over. Peeps always ruin our fun. Have a great Memorial Day and a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Thanks Molly

      It’s all fun and games until Mum comes and puts out her hand and says “Is that for Mummy?” – I’d love to say “Nope, it’s my toy!”, but I’m a good boy and handed it over! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  15. Haha that face in the last picture looks exactly like Mauja’s when she takes something she knows she shouldn’t. She’s like, “can I please have it anyway? I’ll be careful”. Silly pups
    Kelsie recently posted..Mauja’s First PetBox!My Profile

  16. That’s what you get for showing off, right, Snoopy? BOL. Sheba will wiggle her butt and strut around when she has something she knows she’s not supposed to! She always gives it away.
    I like when they pack things in that brown paper….then I don’t have to worry if the dogs get into it. I usually let Luke play with that for a bit….until he starts to eat it!
    Jan K recently posted..Black & White Sunday – RememberingMy Profile

    • Hi Jan

      Oh yes, the brown paper is fun too – I like to tear it up, but I don’t eat it which keeps Mum happy! Yep, I all give the game away like Sheba, Mum knows from the sound of my run around the house if I’ve got something – Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  17. That was some pawesome mischief!! Arty loves an audience when he is mischievious…but the rest of of us like to sneak around… ;-)

    Happy Memorial Day Smileys!

    • Hi Dory and Mama

      I used to sneak around, but then I got all bold and started playing up to the audience, it’s lottsa fun! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  18. Snoopy, you have a nose for trouble! But that’s what makes it fun.

    BTW, my kitties like bubble wrap, so they’re with you on this one.

    • Hi Susan and the gang,

      Well Mum did just leave it lying there by the back door, and when anything’s out of place I need to investigate! :)

      I hope the kitties get some new bubble wrap soon :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  19. Oh no, Mom taking your toy really put a damper on the good time. I thought you were going to make it until that door messed everything up. Glad to see you had a good time while it lasted!
    Stacey recently posted..The Case of the Chewed HarnessMy Profile

    • Hi Stacey

      That’s what I thought too, I said “Open sesame” and well, you saw what happened, nothing! And “Poof!” the toy was gone in a second – doh! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  20. Definitely, Snoopy! There’s no excitement without the audience. I like a lot of chasing and yelling and threats. That’s the whole fun of it! Well done….

    Love and licks,

      I had a fab weekend thanks, I hope you did too, no more parcels yet, but I’m watching out for another one! :)

  26. Hehe there is always something to find whether it’s meant for you or not! That looked like a fun toy, sorry it was stolen away!
