Mischief Monday - Not Really Helping

First mini-mischief is sometime between Thursday night and Friday night, someone peed on one of the dog beds. Hmmmm, wonder who what could have been.

But the real mischief occurred on Saturday, when we were trying to get the last of our wood in for the winter. As we mentioned a few weeks ago, we had 4 cords to stack (a cord is a unit of measurement - a cord is 128 cubic feet). Hailey was on tie out. Phod was loose. Phod kept bringing his frisbee to us to throw, which would be fine except he put it in the wheelbarrow, on the piles of wood etc. etc. He was very much in the way. Hailey kept getting tangled around things and needing to be untangled. About halfway through, we put them in the house. They were not helping. It was a job we really had to get done as the snow was swirling around us as we stacked.

Hailey didn't think this was enough mischief, so while I was writing this post she asked to go out. She didn't really need to go out, she just wanted to, but I took her. While we were out, she rolled in deer poop. Normally she just tries to eat it, but this pile she needed to roll in, so she was covered in poop and I had to clean her off!

Reminder: Thursday is the Hugs From Around the World Blog Hop. Learn more  HERE.

  10. BOL Lee, that's the way to keep Lady on her toes.

    Aroo to you,

  11. Our dad has a woodpile behind the garage, its not that we use it for heat, but he has a bit of pyromaniac running through his veins, so some nights he just starts a nice little fire, the problem is we live in town, the other problem is we live by a church, and the last problem is sometimes church is in session....our dad does not see a problem wif any of it..............I am sure they are glad he is gone....................we have never rolled in anyfing.....we need to put that on our bucket list.

  12. Oh my, that is quite a mischief list! Sounds like Hailey enjoyed a deer poop bath...keeping the Lady busy :-)

  13. Uhoh.......well, Mom has often said she was happy I wasn't the least bit interested in exploring the joys of deer poop....heaven knows we get plenty of deer through here but we decided it must not be a "designated potty stop" for them!

    Hugs, Sammy

  14. No deer poop to roll in here but we have rolled in bird poop and dead earth worms!

  15. Dogs -- they can drive you crazy but they're completely worth it! Hope you got the wood stacked and Hailey bathed.

  16. Just returned from the river and had to hose off whatever smelly gunk Roxy rolled in......yuck! Feel your frustration. We're glad the wood is in and ready for winter.

  17. It sounds like a super fun day at your house. I wish I could have been there to enjoy it with you!

    I am all ready with hugs for everyone.

    Ziggy Out!!

  18. What a fun filled week you pups have had! Not so much for your peeps though, huh?? :-)

  19. It's a deferent definition of "helpful", LOL!

  20. Been there. Done that. Cleaned the deer poop. And bear poop. And goose poop. And I can say, as a poop-cleaning expert that deer poop is preferable. Just sayin' ;-)

  21. Dear Cousins,

    That is Very Good Mischief. Well done! I help with the chore called Rake just like this too. And poop rolling. Always very helpful. Two paws up for you both!


  22. That is a lot of mischief! That Hailey is creative with her mischief!

  23. Any mischief involving poop is usually not good!

    1. Meant to add - will try to join the hop on Thur! That's so nice of you to organize that!

  24. Yup...yes-sir-ee...we gotta agree with you on the "mischief" part *BOL* If it is any consolation, one of us snuck into our dad's study two weeks ago and wee'd on the carpet. We're not telling who it was.
    Wally & Sammy

  25. Never a dull moment, right?
    Cricket's version of helping with work outside is also to throw her ball on top of whatever you are doing, or throw it at your feet and then bark at you! LOL

  26. Ewwwwwwwwwwww!! Deer poop!!
