Mischief Monday - These things always happen to the Man

This is the story the Man told the Lady - FYI she laughed so hard, feel free to laugh as well. If only there was a video . . . .

Friday pm:
Man comes home from work first. The pups seem a little agitated but the ravens (we call Ed, Al and Poe) often hop around the front yard stressing everyone out. He lets the pups out. Hailey runs down the step and is sniffing under the deck. Phod trots off to the side of the house (as usual). Phod comes back with a groundhog in his mouth.

Hailey goes crazy because Phod has the groundhog and she does not. Man goes crazy not knowing if the groundhog is alive or dead and yelling at Phod to drop it.

Phod drops it. Now a very angry groundhog is between Phod and Lee. Man is able to call Phod to him, grabs him by the collar and drags the pups inside. [Another example of what a gentle sweet boy our Phod can be].

Now you would think the groundhog would use this opportunity to run away, but he did not. He sat there protesting his treatment. The Man approached and he didn't run away. He yells at Man and lunges. Man grabs some water and throws it on the groundhog. This just seems to make him madder. Man gets the shovel and tries to push the groundhog away. The mad groundhog ends up on his back. More pushing, more water, more yelling by the groundhog and 5 minutes later the Man has moved the groundhog from the middle of the yard to the side of the yard.

He decides he really needs to get the dogs out as they haven't done a thing since he got home. He puts them on leash and "snap" Phod's leash breaks. While outside dealing with the mad groundhog, Lee has chewed it. It is discovered later she chewed hers too.

That is why LeeLee the leash killer was forced to strike and kill the leashes.

FYI: We don't know what happened to the groundhog, he has not been seen since. We really hope he is ok. Also Lady says she would have left the groundhog in the front and taken the dogs out the back (both on leash of course).

Come back tomorrow for "My dog is too smart".


The card from Auntie K to the Lady:

"He slept. He ate. Ye barked at stuff.
He went for a walk. He pooped . . .
Geez, it's like he's living my life!"


  1. WOW! I wanna know how that groundhog tasted........HAHAHAHA

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. who knew groundhogs could be so stubborn? Must admit we have only ever seen them in pictures - never seen in one in real life and probably don't want want too know :)

  3. yay for THE MAN he must be as patient as a saint. I bet Mr. Groundhog is somewhere in the wood and still busy with his verbal sit in :o)

  4. That's a brave groundhog (that or he really was super pissed off) I hope he's OK!

  5. MOUSES! What an adventure. Sounds like someone over there has been messin' about with the space-time continuum and thrown everythin' out of whack. Hmmm... Have you seen my brother Seville lately?


  6. wow you sure have a lot of excitement at your house! Hoping the groundhog is ok. I was right that someone chewed the leash!

  7. Would have loved to watch all that excitement!
    From afar of course

  9. Dear Lee and Phod,

    That is some amazing excitement! Ojo caught a baby bunny yesterday, but she made it dead. I thought this was mean. It was also mean that the people made us leave it behind. Clearly you are a great hunter though Phod!
