Mischief Monday - She Wouldn't Let Us Keep It - by Zaphod

Dear Pals,

You know I am a very good boy. I am the nicest boy Lady knows. Last week on our walk, I found a very special treat. It looked and smelt a lot like the chicken's feet they Lady gives us. If you look closely at the picture below you can see it. (Not the best picture but Lady just had the phone).


I picked up this delicious treat on our way down the road. Lady told me to drop it and I did. I remembered exactly where it was, and when we came back up our road (see, it was just down from our house so I had to pass it again), I picked it up again. Lady again told me to drop it. I did. I was sad. Lady said she was very happy to not have to take that from my mouth. She told the Man I was a very good boy. I was glad about that.

It is gone now. Maybe some day I will find and get to east such a delicious treat.

Lady has no idea why Hailey, who sniffed it and eats everything, didn't try and eat it. She said she was happy with that because she would have had to take it out of Hailey's mouth. She wouldn't have dropped it like I did. She isn't as good as I am.

  1. Phod I'm with you... maybe sometimes you will find it back... I still look for the rotten berds egg I found once... The mama is with the Lady, to pull out weird things from our mouth is horrible... specially when we have to walk home with hands what had to touch god knows what :o)

  4. Well, that surprise treat does look delicious! I am not surprised that you were so well behaved and listened to your Lady both times she told you to drop it. I, on the other paw, would've tried to hide it for another day. BOL

  9. Hey Phod!
    Wow, what a wonderful find! I'm sad you didn't get to keep/eat it because I bet it tasted just like chicken. BOL ahem. Anyway, it might have made your breath bad and then no one likes to talk to you. Just sayin. Probably for the bestest.

  10. OMD I would have rolled in it. I love a good stinky anything, if it's dead or parts of a dead anything I will give a good roll in it. I think mom really appreciates it. You should give it a try.

    Aroo to you,
    Sully

  13. Not letting my Mom see this because I probably would have eaten it. I picked up a twig the other day on my walk and was chewing and chewing. Mom and Dad yelled "drop it" and I wouldn't!! Mom was mad at me for HOURS after that! Barks and licks and love, Dakota DakotasDen

  22. We find all sorts of great things along our walks too, but we always get the "leave it" command. Sheesh, humans spoil all the fun.

  23. We sure would have loved to find that! Like Ciara and Lightning, we'd get the ol' "leave it!" command, too. Bipeds just don't get it.

  24. Phod, you are really a good boy! You must have been very tempted to feast on that treat!
    Sorry you couldn't keep it...maybe the lady will give you extra chicken feet for being such a good boy :-)

  25. Humans always seem to ruin our fun.

  26. I have been in this same exact situation several times. One time I picked up a chicken wing and another time part of a burger. Life is so unfair!

    Your Pals,

  27. We aren't sure what it is but it sure looks tasty. Too bad your mom wouldn't let you keep it.

  30. You're good. You should only eat stuff that your mom or dad give you. That way you know that it's safe to eat.

  31. Oh Phod. The loss of a treasure is heartbreaking. Butts, I hope you gots a extra couple of treaties for 'dropping it'. I do. That's the ONLY reason I drops stuffs. I would never otherwise. shhh. don't tells Ma. She thinks I'm just being good. Anyhu, keep your snooter open, if there is one, there are usually two...
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

  35. What a good boy you are, Phod! (Grossest thing I ever had to take away from Rita was a dead gopher. Oh, the horror!!!)

  36. What a good doggie. Hope you got a treat for your goodness.

  37. Dear Handsome Phod,

    Sometimes there is such a thing as "too good". Next time just sneak it. Okay? Okay.

  38. Oh Phod, you are a good boy. Hailey is a lot like Delilah, although Delilah is sometimes obedient in dropping things. Sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You are SUCH a good boy, Phod! Luke is getting much better about dropping things as well. He must be watching you to see how it's done (and his sisters would also be just like Hailey)!
