Me: Where's my shoe? Have you seen my black shoe?
Brook (blind and partly deaf): Your...uh...dock glue?
Me: MY BLACK SHOE.
Brook: Oh, I dunno. I thought you said dock glue. Do we even have dock glue? It's probably with the camping stuff. Hmmmm...where is the camping stuff? We should go camping again.
Me: Breeze? Where's my shoe?
Breeze (blind, exuberant eight month old puppy): HI! Here I am. HI!!
Me: Did you take my shoe?
Me: Hiker, do you have my shoe?
Hiker (blind and if she could be giggling, she would be): I haven't seen it!
Me: I'm coming in your crate. I need my shoe.
Hiker is wagging her tail and wiggling as I reach in, feel around and discover my shoe underneath her.
Hiker (blind): I said I hadn't SEEN it!
Yup, a funny bunch and we're still keeping the fun in dysfunctional.
Sunday afternoon I went visiting the neighbors to drop off some dog biscuits I had made. I wasn't going to be long. Just a few minutes. I won't crate. They'll be fine, right? Wrong!
I'm not sure how many of the little candy canes got eaten. Nobody seemed to be feeling any ill effects so I'm not even sure who ate them. I went to each of them and tried to smell their breath. Who smells like candy cane?!
That's a little hand held vacuum that they ripped the lid of the box off. I wonder if they were thinking they could clean up and I wouldn't notice. The other casualty was a cardboard produce basket.
Next time I shall crate.
The dog biscuits I delivered? Very much appreciated and well received. More on those tomorrow for Tasty Tuesday!
Oh dear, trouble in paradise at your place! I steal underwear sometimes but now in the winter I prefer to steal mom's gloves and get them all slobbery wet :) Stopping by from the blog hop to say hi.ReplyDelete
Hi, thanks for stopping by! Blind Hiker has always liked to collect winter wear too, she'll store mitts and hats in her crate along with footwear.Delete
OMG, my question is this, is there only one mischief maker or do they all go in on it together? I know Delilah is the only one at my place, I can just picture Sampson rolling his eyes when she gets on a tear! LOLReplyDelete
(And I apologize for the identification, for some reason I can only comment on blogger using my google account.)
I'm not sure, likely Forest was the ringleader on this, but that's only a guess. Honestly, they are a very good bunch except for when they are unsupervised! That bag of candy canes has been in my work bag for the past four days! geez.Delete
Oh, I can SO relate.
Before you had Ray, would you ever had thought that a blind dog could get into so much mischief?! I know I never would have.Delete
Those troublemakers! Yah, if I had 6 cattle dogs I think I'd have 6 crates at the ready at all times too :)ReplyDelete
It's really not like that! Honest. They are good pups who only get into mischief when bored and alone. It was a lousy weather day which contributed to the misbehavin'.Delete
Lol - that's hilarious! Actually, I'm just glad I am not alone to leave the room and come back to something being missing or destroyed. Even Blueberry has joined in the destruction!ReplyDelete
Oh ya...hilarious. Even funnier was me crawling around on the floor picking up the intact candy canes while the pack "helped" and wondered what I was muttering about.Delete
It's ALWAYS funny when that happens to someone else. ;)Delete
I knew it! I just knew that's what you were thinking!Delete
What sweet pups!! (Even though they are a little mischievious!) At least they tried to clean up:)ReplyDelete
Oh ya, they tried at least. Interesting thing though, I never did find the lid to the box. I think somebody ate it!Delete
Woof! Woof! Oh my what have you done ... Happy Monday Mischief. Lots of Golden Woofs, SugarReplyDelete
I think they were trying to get into the Christmas spirit!!Delete
Sounds like they were fine to us. Just found some entertainment. SHE had a wolfhound that used to walk past the Christmas tree and take a candy cane! Ate it paper in all. never any problem.ReplyDelete
Love Hiker! SHE worked with blind kids and they'd always say they hadn't seen something....and laugh.
XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy
Well, it seems that candy canes are not causing any ill effects but of course, that will not be encouraged!Delete
It's so important to keep a sense of humor, especially at 5:30 in the morning. Hiker is the collector and it all ends up in her crate.
Ut Oh...the only thing we steal is any decoration that looks like a dog toy hehe!ReplyDelete
I can't imagine the chaos if we had a tree and decorations!Delete
They just wanted minty fresh breath is all. That's all anybody wants. ;)ReplyDelete
They didn't smell all that minty fresh, I tried to smell them to find out who ate them but didn't have much luck!Delete
Whenever something like this happens, I tell myself it could have been worse! ;-) Consider yourself lucky if your shoe was still in one piece. I'm glad no one got an upset tummy from the candy canes!ReplyDelete
Susan and Wrigs
Oh ya, it coulda been WAY worse! To me, this is minor, something to chuckle about. I almost expect things like this, it's what can happen with a pack!Delete
BOL funny story :) Glad you found your shoe in the end heheReplyDelete
Hi Cotton! You probably never ever do stuff like that do ya?!Delete
Fun story...and totally doggy! Just when you think "no crate today" we loving dogs show you why we love are crates! They're an excellent place to hide shoes!ReplyDelete
Yup, you'd think after all these years I'd learn! But I was only going to be gone for a few minutes... Ha ha, famous last words!Delete
