Mischief Monday - A lot of mischief last week!

More about the tunnel:  I went and read the tag. It is made by a company called Pets at Home. They appear to be a UK based company. That may not help all our American friends, but may help our UK ones! [Living in a Commonwealth country, has its advantages].

Now the Mischief:
I just want to say, Emma wins pup of the week award, she was not really involved in all our shenanigans! (she had a few accidents but most were our fault!)

Tuesday: Hailey gets into the bush during a groundhog chasing event. She gets so tangled around the bush, she is choking herself. To get her untangled, I have to undo the tie out. She gets loose and gets under the logs. I am just wearing shorts and flip flops, so as I am trying to get her out of the deep bush and out from under a wood pile, I was getting cut. Finally I took the other 2 inside and put on long pants and real shoes and climbed up the wood pile (which wasn't safe) and got her. I admit during this 30 minutes, I lost my cool and cried. Hailey came out, happy as a pig in poop, covered in dirt. I brought her in, put her in the bathroom alone for a few minutes to regain my composure and then threw her in the bath! She did not like that.

This picture was taken after I had caught her on the logs. Look at the dirt in her fur! 

Saturday: First they took all the Tupperware  that was sitting by the counter and chewed some of it up and put it by the front door, while we were out. That evening Aunt C and Uncle D were over. We had a fire. The dogs were inside. There were some fireworks, which stressed Lee out. When we came in there were 4 HUGE pee spots in the basement. Basically Hailey and Zaphod had peed everywhere! We were not happy. This is the second time recently that Hailey has had an accident due to fireworks. It may have been so bad because access was blocked to her favourite rooms (our bedroom door was closed as we had the patio door open trying to cool the house down and the guest room was closed as it was made up for Aunt C and Uncle D).

Sunday: Phody ran out onto the road when a car was coming. Scared the poop out of the Man. He knew he was in trouble.
I caused mischief when I was trying to create a new header for the blog and when I removed the old one, I forgot I didn't have the old one saved as someone had made it for me. I will have to get a new one made this week. [I am having trouble with sizing it].

It was a busy week!  Mischief Maker of the week goes to Hailey!

PS: We just got a TJ Maxx in Ottawa, and it doesn't have a home decor section, so I didn't know they had those in the US!


  1. That is some mischief going on indeed. I had the sickies and could not go out all last week but Saturday I was OK to go to the park and I promptly rolled in poop. I got the hose when I got home. Yikes it was horrid. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I say A+ for mischief this week, guys. Well done.

  3. Wow guys - that sure is a huge amount of mischief for only 1 week! You guys are pulling out all the stops!

    Keep up the great work,

    Your pal Snooopy :)

  4. Holey MOley my mom was exhausted after reading this post, we even feel sorry for your momma, cos we have done some of those very things here at our house and it stressed our momma out so much she cried. That is why she made Alcatraz even bigger and safer cos now she doesn't have to worry about us running out in the highway anymore!! Unless dumb dad leaves the gate open, mom calls him dumb not me, cos he cooks me real good bacon.
    Hope your week is better.

  5. THAT was a MAJOR Mischief with the wood pile... too bad it was followed up with the WATER TORTURE .

    BUTT NO MORE running into the STREET... THAT is WAY to scary!!!!! OKAY???

  6. OMD…. I think you win! Most Mischief in a week.

  7. haven't seen you around in a while so I hope you are still getting my blog posts.
    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. My goodness but you most certainly have had a "trying" time!! Our animals do like to keep us on our toes don't they?!

    Hugs, Pam (with Sam nodding his ginger head in agreement)

  9. Hey, just doing what puppers do, now about that fireworks and peeing, thats why we got them Diapers!

  10. Oh my goodness you guys are just full of mischief! Sounds like you try to keep your peeps on their toes!

  11. Oh Hailey! Chase those pests when you are off leash

  12. Goodness, what a week! Anytime you need even more mischief, we'd be happy to send our sister Tessa (aka Danger Cat) right over! She specializes in chewing Tupperware! Purrs...

  13. Holy crap, woman! You've had a harrowing week! Sounds like all of y'all need a good vacation.

  14. Okay this is how you gots to do it...have your son in laws come over with all the fencing materials and just do it while dad is at work and surprize him...that is what our mom did, of course it didn't quite work that way cos somehow mom got dads work hours mixed up and he was off the night the son in laws came so mom didn't get as big as alcatraz as we needed and it didn't come all the way to the door, now one year later she took care of that little problem all by herself!!!

  15. A real groundhog!!! Fireworks!!! None of that is the dogs' our opinion.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  16. OH DEAR ME PHOD AND HAILEY YOU TWO ARE SO'll be lucky to get out of the dog house in the next two years.
    I know your fear and frustration. Our first family pet was a might mini Dachshund, named Toto. This was 37 years ago and we still tell Toto stories so you can imagine the mischief he got into. He LOVED Barbie legs and ate them every chance he got. The dog next door was a very large gentle Golden Retriever. Toto delighted at getting between Toby's back legs and nipping at the hair..Toby would turn in circles trying to get to him. Toto always got away.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  17. Sounds like a busy week with lots of mischief! But fireworks noise sure is very stressful. Saturday mischief is really fireworks' fault!

  18. OMD We have never heard of so much Mischief, running in the road is not a good idea. We have a pets at home over the road from us, will check it out. I can't change my header as I don't understand the resizing. xxooxxx

  19. Looks like you've made up for your mischief dry spell BOL
