Mischief Monday - Yard Patrol

Before we get to our mischief post, we want everyone to know about a special event going on over at Mollie and Alfie's. Mollie and Alfie are trying to put together an auction to help Angel Mabel Lou's people over at pay for her medical and funeral costs. If you can help in any small way, go over to Mollie and Alfie's for all the information.


Today's mischief comes from the paws of Zaphod. It is unusual for him to be our mischief maker, but occasionally he causes a little bit of mischief.

On Saturday night we decide to have a bonfire. While in general the dogs don't enjoy being outside with us at the fire, they don't enjoy being inside alone either, so we usually bring them out for a bit and then take them in. Hailey is on leash or tie out during these, but since our Phod is usually a rock star, he gets to be free.

As dusk was falling, Phod heard something in the bush and off he ran!  Fortunately, because he is a pretty good boy, he was only gone for a few minutes and I could hear the dingle of his collar most of the time (when Hailey wasn't screaming, "Why does he get to run free and I have to be tied up?"  so loudly I couldn't hear anything else). We have no idea what he was chasing, but a very happy boy returned! At least we know we were safe!

Happy returning Phod

It is peak black fly season here now. To find out if our K9 Kelp spritz helped, come back tomorrow!

    Wow, great job running down whatever that was out there! Probably a squirrel. Those absolutely must be chased away immediately. Great work, and I'm glad you came right back too. That keeps the peeps happy. BOL

  7. Zaphod Zapped that intruder. GOOD GOING!!! BUTT WHY did your mom call it Mischief? WE think it was just being a GOOD GUARD Dawg.

  8. yes, that was my first thought too... Phod? that's uncommon. But if he had a happy face he got that what-ever-it-was, I 'm sure . Hope it was tasty :o)

  9. Good boy, Phod. If Lee would only REALISE that if she came back, she could be free, too.
