Mischief Monday - I did not run away- by Lee



On Saturday evening my people had to go out and leave me for a million minutes. Before going out they fed us and while Lady was packing up, Man took us out. I have been working hard on my off leash training and my people have been letting me off leash more often. The Man made a mistake to do this when he was in a hurry to leave. While out minding my own business,  I got the scent of the wild turkeys we had seen earlier in the day and I had to follow them.

I did hear my Man and then my Lady calling, but I was too busy sniffing.
A bad picture our Lady took in the fall of the turkeys outside our window. She didn't get a picture on our adventure

My sniffing was interrupted when my Lady met me on the snowmobile path right behind our house. At first I ignored her, as I had turkeys to track. But then she did something very mean. She showed me she had a greenie in her pocket. I had to think about this for a minute but I decided I would give up my hunt for the greenie (as the saying goes, 1 in the hand is worth 2 in the bush). 


My Lady then did the unthinkable because she didn't have my leash with her, she carried me for a bit. This was sucky for me and hard for her cause we were down the hill and it is snowy and a steep walk up. She put me down and had the greenie in her hand and I stayed right with her to the house. I had to wait til we were safe in the house to get the greenie. She said she didn't trust me!

My Lady says I caused the mischief by not coming when called. I think she did by making me pick between turkey and greenie. What do you think?

    1. I think if I had seen a turkey they would have won, but I just smelled them!

  2. Real wild turkeys???? You had no choice...you HAD to go after them. They're just lucky you weren't dragging them along by the leash!

    A greenie in the hand, or turkeys running in the bush...that's a toughie.

    1. Yes, real wild turkeys, a flock or gaggle or whatever they are. We live in a cool place.

  3. Don't scare you people, Lee! Monty takes off quite regularly and Mom has become an ace at the flying tackle. He can't be convinced to come for a treat. It is highly amusing to the neighbors.

  5. No doubt we would have picked the turkeys! But when we were done with them, we would have begged, pleaded and borrowed for a Greenie.

  7. Oh me...those turkeys were most delicious looking but I expect you would have been quite disgusted by the feathers. As for the greenies you know they are always tasty,

    1. Good point, hadn't thought about the turkey feathers. I wonder if I caught one if the Lady would pick the feathers for me.

    1. The only problem is that if you get too close they fly into a tree!

  12. Well, I feel your lady's pain because Shiner is not very good at coming when called either. I know she hears me but is just ignoring me. And when she decides to walk back up to the house, she walks very very slowly and takes her time so I have to stand outside longer lol.

    1. I don't think they know how stressful it is for the people when they don't listen . . .
