Monday Mischief – Snoopy Cheated!

I have to confess my mischief this week is that I cheated, but I also need to make it clear that it wasn’t my fault!

A couple of weeks ago we participated in the annual 5k run for our local pet shelter.  I normally run the whole course and in previous years have come in as first dog – I can go really fast you know! :)

Here I am with Dad heading for my prize - but wait, should I really be up there?

This year Mum was just walking and Dad was running, unfortunately I got stuck with Mum, doh!  Once we got started Mum noticed there was an official short route, she decided to take it as we needed to head off somewhere straight after the race…..

Well, guess what, we bumped into Dad, who was in 2nd place! Go Dad!  He said I could run with him as I was super bored just walking with Mum!

I ended up being the first Dog across the line!  This year they had awards for the dogs who’d raced too as well as the humans…

Mum realized they were about to award me first place and told them I cheated, they said it was ok and gave me 3rd instead – phew!  I didn’t want to upset the other two doggies who’d actually run the whole course!

Here we all are after all the places were sorted out fairly! I got Dad to hold my prize, it was a little heavy for me!

I wonder what mischief everyone else has been up to? :)

  1. It is nice that you got to run some and it was good that you were honest about not doing all the running. We are sure if you had, you would have come in first. We have been up to our normal mischief, barking at the wind, hating our new toys, just that kind of thing. Have a great day.

    • Hey Hailey and Zaphod

      I sure would have come in first, I’m super fast you know! :)

      Glad you’ve been keeping up the mischief at your end guys!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Whether you cheated or not, you’re still top dog in my book.

  3. You are quite an honorable dog, Snoopy! Good for you!

  4. That’s wonderful that you were so honest! Congrats on your win anyway! Is that a prize rock?

    • Thanks Mary

      Yep, I should have explained the prizes were big chunks of granite as the race was at a granite quarry and they are kind enough to sponsor the prizes – we have quite a collection of granite from these races now from all the years we’ve entered! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  5. Oh you’re an honest dog. Third place isn’t bad ;)

    • Hi Caren,

      It sure does, though there might be a few bits of mischief at home that I may not claim! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  10. Honesty is the best policy!

  11. Honesty pays off! I bet you would have still gotten first if you had run the entire time ;)

  12. It’s a very beautiful action to run for the animal cause ! In any case Snoopy, you’re “forgiven” because Mom was very honest. We had no doubt ! :-)
    And you know, the third place is very very well. The main sing is to participate ;-)

  13. Well you didn’t mean to cheat! Are you enjoying your rock?

  14. Honesty is the best policy, S. Well done. I’m happy they gave you a prize, anyway. I mean, the official short route was “official” after all….

    Love and licks,

  15. Sounds like it was mom’s fault, oh well. At least you got to run with dad part of the time and were honest about it. At least they let you get a prize too. Sounds like they were trying to be fair.

  16. Hooray for Dad! And hooray for you too – even if you didn’t run the whole thing. It’s good your mum confessed. Wouldn’t want to upset the other doggies! And you wouldn’t want to be infamous – like that person that took the subway to “win” the NY marathon that time!

  17. A honest third place is much better than a dishonest first. Way to go! It looks like you had fun with the human parents so you were a winner long before they gave you the trophy!

    • Hey Crazy Dog Life

      I think you’re right, I was a winner the moment I knew I was going out, I don’t care where I go, so it was a bonus to run the race with all the doggies! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  18. Technically it was your folks fault so I think you would be completely devoid of blame!

  19. I think you should get a first prize for honesty, Snoopy! Not all dogs would be that honest. Well done!

  20. What an honest pup! :) Even though you didn’t run the whole time I think that’s a great achievement! Congrats!

    • Hi Mollie

      They did give me a bag of treats, but I couldn’t have them as I don’t eat grains, luckily Mum gave me carrots and sweet potato treats instead! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)
