Mischief Monday - Not A Good Boxing Day - By Phod

Dear Pals, 

As you know Lady feeds the birds and because she does so, we have wild turkeys in our backyard all the time.

Picture from the fall, but it is about the same now with snow

On Boxing Day morning Lady took us out and Lee had seen the turkeys in the driveway and told me they were there. Because I am usually a good boy (except that time last week where I ran away for 20 minutes, but that is another story) I get to be off leash. One of the things I love the most is chasing the turkeys. I never chase them far, I just like to watch them fly up in the trees. So, one I had finished my business, I ran to the backyard and chased the turkeys, and Lady could hear them yelling at me and flapping. Then like a good boy I came back.

Now, here is where the story gets bad. You see, when I was chasing the turkeys, I came upon some fresh turkey poop and well, I couldn't help it, I rolled in it. This meant I came back to the Lady with turkey poop all over my neck. Lady was not happy with this choice. She dragged me into the house and into the bathroom, and she closed the door.

This is where she wishes she could have video tapped it because the scene was hilarious.  Me flopping to the ground and trying to hang on to it for dear life, while Lady who wrapped a towel around my neck so she didn't get covered in poop, trying to lift me up. We caused such a commotion that the Man had to come in (he was not happy to have been woken up on a sleep in day, even though it was nearly 8 am). It took the 2 of them, one on each end to get me into the tub. When asked what she would have done if Man wasn't home, she said, she would have taken off her pjs and we would have gone into the shower together. There is a small lip and she could have dragged me into it and closed the door. 

Now once in the tub, I was very cooperative. I just stood there. Somehow Lady dropped the hose piece and literally sprayed water all over the bathroom. Once I was clean, I got a towel dry. Lady then had to scrub the poop out of my collar and dry the entire bathroom. 

Once I was in, Lady, being the blogger she is, made Man go and get her phone for a picture. 

I was mad at her and didn't talk to her most of the day. She said that was ok, cause I wasn't the favourite at the moment.

Anyway, that was my terrible Boxing Day.

you pal, the smells like soap and not poop so the turkeys will smell me coming, Phod


  1. I am wondering why Gail laughed so much at the sentence "Lady was not happy with this choice". She says she thinks that lady might have picked up the British habit of understatement when she was over here earlier this year...
    Toodle pip!

  2. Hari om
    BOL... oh... ahem. I mean, deary me you poor darling dog!!! Nope. Can't help it. I'm smiling from here to there!!! Sorry Phod, I might be on Lady's side with this one. Too many memories of similar with angel Jade &*> hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Aw dawg, how terrible! You smelled so wonderful, I'm SURE, and now you smell like SOAP?! Ugh. Bad Lady!!

  4. It's too bad your Lady had to wash all the turkey poop stink off of you. We wish there was a video of them trying to get you into the tub. That would have been fun to watch.

  5. Oh my DOGS Phod I'm so sorry but I must admit to giggling all the way through this post.
    OMDs been there done that but not with turkey poop. Crazy Toto the Mighty mini Dachshund aka hound dog had a nose for poop. GOOD news is when it came to cleaning him up I became the Mighty and he was the mini only 11 lbs of smelly.
    Yay for the turkeys being able to smell you coming.
    My favorite line was "I was mad at her and didn't talk to her most of the day. She said that was ok, cause I wasn't the favourite at the moment."

    K10 now that I have regained my composure. Yay for figuring out crazy Blogger but geez I hope you can get around the need to 'fix' every day.
    Hugs HiC

  6. I bet you would love the cow field across the way.
    Coffee is on

  7. I have rolled in wild turkey poop before, Phod. Isn't it the most wonderful scent to wear! Bummer about the bath.

  8. I would absolutely LOVE to chase some turkeys like that! Fun fun FUN!!! I'd say it would be well worth the bath! Woooohooooo! Hope you have happy New Year!

  9. Turkey poop must be a expensive sent
    cause we have none here.
    I will have to send my ma to the country
    maybe she can find some there.
    Hope hope it's the last bath you have to take this year!
    Happy New Year.

  10. Roxy is 100% with you on the bird chasing and rolling in aromatic material! Sorry about the water torture later. (WE approve of Lady's pyjamas....)

  11. Sometimes THEY don't understand how important it is to smell like the enemy, no matter what time of the day!
    Better look next time, Phoddy!

  12. How we wish you had a camera in your bathroom:)!!! We have never gotten close enough to the turkeys here to have fun in the poop:) We bet it smells great!!!

    Happy New Year!

  14. I would continue to chase those turkeys, the bath is their fault! But hopefully "you're one and done" on the bath for awhile. However, for me, I think I'd love a bath in that tub, and your Mom has some pretty cool pajamas!!!

  15. What a story. A clean dog and mopped up bathroom floor. Your Mommy should be thanking u for cleaning the bathroom.

    That is a cute tub. Have a Happy New Year.

  16. Phod oh Phod we feel for you we really do Mommy usually makes us smell like blueberries. What self respecting dog or cat wants to walk around smelling of blueberries.

    Lucky for us she can't lift us to put us in the tub by herself and we don't have any walk in showers she can drag us into ~The Dogs

    We just depend on our ability to squirm out of things and scratch and claw and bite to stay out of baths. ~The Cats

  17. Snicker. 😂Been there, done that, earned the tee-shirt. (well not the rolling in poop part but definitely dropping the sprayer). Hope everyone is still clean and dry.
