Mischief Monday - The Long Leash - by Hailey

Now that the snow has returned the peeps have decided that sometimes I can be on my tie out, not attached to anything and wander in the yard, under their very close supervision. The reason they are allowing this is because the snow makes it harder for me to run too fast and the tie out has knots and gets easily caught if I get into the bush. It is not ideal as it does slow me down and is hard to drag around. But it does give me more freedom than when I have to be attached to a person.

You can see how closely I am supervised at times

My peeps encourage me to stay in the yard (meaning the open area that would have grass if there wasn't so much snow).

Lady thought it was funny that I had so much snow on my nose. 

Technically, I am still in the yard, but my peeps don't like me to be this far into the bush

So I humoured them and came back out. 

Overall, I give this way of spending lunch a B! 

Now, if I can just figure out how to convince them to let me in the bush more!


  1. we tried tht once... and then I set da nelly free with gnawing da long leash... but he is an idiot, he forgot to set me free too...

  2. Hari om
    I think that is a good compromise may be don't push it too far with the bush, ok?! Hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Oh Lee it appears you have discovered having a long 'leash' on life is okey dokey...mainly 'cause the grass is never greener down the road and the snow could be up to your nose
    Hugs Cecilia

  4. you look so very happy with your longer leash on life... enjoy and keep the bush hopping to a minimum... back in the 80's our dog max loved to go to Vetearans park, the penensuala had a lot of beach with water to wade in . we bought a 30 foot rope and tied it to daddy's arm, it was a federal park with strict leash laws. there were no signs that said how long the leash had to be. Max waded to his hearts content with Daddy 30 feet away, daddy loved wading too

  5. Good idea to humour your humans Hailey. After a while, they'll start to relax and drop their guard, and then you'll be able to make a break for it.
    Toodle pip!

  6. Well, the bush is where all the good smells are!

  7. Longer tethers are always a good thing!

  8. It's good to see you have some freedom, Hailey but don't overstep your boundaries or you might loose that right.

    P.S. We're jealous of all your snow.

  9. Wow! That looks like fun! Last summer, Mom and Alex took the old wire fence around our yard down to make mowing easier. I, Cinnamon still stay in the yard! Its like the fence is still there for me! We are glad you like having the extra freedon!
    Have a most wonderfully Happy Day!

  10. I am so glad that you get some freedom in the winter. Your peeps really look out for you!

  11. Aw sweet girl...they just want you to stay safe. Stretch those legs, but not too far 'kay?
