Mischief Monday/Tasty Tuesday

I was thinking. "I'll just be a few minutes...I don't need to crate everybody. Nothing will happen." Wrong! (again)  Not to worry, this isn't a post about a horrible accident or even some disaster, unless the lack of breakfast items will bring forth some sympathy from you! Let me explain.

I was leaving home for a few minutes to head over to the tap to fill our water buckets. Return trip takes about five minutes or so. It's a bit of a hassle to crate all the dogs and as you can imagine, they aren't really thrilled with it, especially in the midst of playing. So, I left them all loose except for Callie who was in her large penned area.

Upon my return, the sewing machine had been knocked off the table (I was making curtains) and blind and mostly deaf Brook was on the table. I suppose that the sewing machine was in her way. In the way of what you ask?

In the way of these.

On the left is the remains of a package of flour tortillas and the white paper is from half a sleeve of soda crackers.

Then I found this:

Brook went through the loaf of bread and each slice had some missing except for the crust at the bottom of the bag. Picky little thing. 

The bread was 12 grain and let me just say that the extra fibre was evident the next day.

Someday I will learn and take the time to crate all the dogs when I leave, even if it is only for a few minutes!


  1. It just wouldn't be home if there wasn't some puppy mischief happening right! That really is record time for such a large amount of 'sampling' to have taken place... I think she must have had it all planned out and had just been waiting for the opportunity! Have a great week you guys!

  2. BOL! Someone needs to go grocery shopping. :D

  3. There's nothing wrong with Brook's nose, is there.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  4. We agree Brooks has a super sniffing snout then. LOL. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    I have to admit, I admire Brook's confidence. I hope the sewing machine is okay.

  6. That's quite an amazing accomplishment in only five minutes! Are you certain Brook didn't have some accomplices? ;-) We hope your sewing machine weathered the fall without any damage.

  7. LOL - sorry but oh man, they sure do keep you hopping, don't they?

    Sorry we haven't been around recently - I really need to find an alternative to my Google Reader - I've lost touch with so many of my favorite blogs. Glad to hear the dogs are well (if still a little difficult. ;) )

  8. Or maybe start hanging up the temptations like what you have to do when camping and worrying about bears getting into the food. ;)

    I hope your sewing machine is ok...

  9. Well, we animals get hungry you know! I haven't been fed for at least an hour!

  10. I've done exactly the same thing as you with similar results - mischief!

  11. This has been the story of my life. Go figure, they always wait until you're gone before they get mischievous.

  12. Hey, you gotta get your breakfast somehow! As always I am in awe of your status as the manager of so many ACDs...albeit precious, they are indeed mischievous!

  13. BOL, that's funny. Well to us anyhoo. Ya gotta love those rascals! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
