Mischief Monday - A Terrible Day - by Lee

Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian Friends!
We hope you are enjoying the finally it is nice out weather!

We had the most terrible day on Saturday.

First, the peeps put me on my tie out and then went where I couldn't see them. I had to bark and carry on.

Then they moved me to where I could watch and there were 3 loud booms. Lady thought gun fire (it may be turkey season), the Man thought fireworks, but whatever it was, it was very scary and I pulled and pulled to go inside. It wasn't even noon. Lady said I was pulling so much she couldn't get my tie out off. I was very stressed for a while after, although fortunately there were no more booms. (I am still not on my prozac).

After the first boom

Then around 2, our power went out for 10 minutes. Phod is very scared of the power being out. He tried to hide.

Apparently this is a safe spot

It was all rather dramatic and our peeps actually changed their plans and went for a drive to nowhere the next day (they are trying to make sure the cars each get run once a week and since Man only goes out once a week for supplies, they joy ride in the other). They didn't think they should leave us when we were sooooooo worked up. (We did fine when they left us for an hour on Sunday. We did act like we do when they pick us up at the kennel when they got home though).

That was our terrible day!


  1. was it for celebrating victoria day that such loud noises were around you? we are so sorry, hugs to you two, we hope the days will be more qiet now...

  2. What a stressful and terrible day for you both. I can tell just how upset you are by your tail, Hailey.

  3. That sounds awful!! Our power went out twice this weekend, and it's NO fun.

  8. We're sorry to hear you both had a bad weekend and hope the week ahead is much better.

  9. Oh dear. Let's hope for some good days to come.

  10. Oh my, that does sound a bit stressful. We are so glad Sunday went a bit easier for you!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  11. OMGoodness! You two had to be SO BRAVE with all that upsetting stuff going on. I am happy you made it through successfully. You can't let perfect be the enemy of good. You were good!! Well done.

    Love and licks,

  12. Perhaps you can get your people to let you check in to a 4-star hotel with a VERY quiet suite with doggy room service on the next Victoria Day.

  13. Oh no! We hope there aren't any more terrible days like that any time soon.

  14. The peeps here have the same problem with their cars. Mom gets hers out once or twice a week, but not Dad. Mom doesn't like to drive his, so they too took a joyride today:)

    Lightning sympathizes with both of your for being scared by noises and power outages. He has been getting to walk more often now with Mom, but with this stay-at-home stuff, there are bicyclists everywhere!!! He is just terrified of bikes and pulls to go home as soon as he sees ONE even if it is on the other side of the street:(

    Woos, Lightning and Timber

  15. I guess I'm lucky that none of those things bother me. Hope you guys don't have to deal with them too much in the future.

  16. Oh no - those booms sound terrible. I'm glad that you both survived that horrendous day.

    No pups on the Joy Ride?!?

  17. Oh Phod, I am the same way with the power outages! I don't likes them at all! Though, the worse part is when it comes back on, and all the electronics and appliances start beeping! I HATES beeping! I try and hide in Ma's room. Hailey, your tail is tucked so tight, it's like me when Ma comes at me with the ear meds! I am glads there were no more booms. ♥
    Stay safe my furiends!
    Ruby ♥

  18. So sorry for the bummer of a day. Hopefully you've both recovered and things are looking up now.
