Mischief Monday - No Rest For The Wicked - by Lee

 Dear Pals,

Saturday morning, I was not having any of this sleeping in business. I was up and ready to go at 5:20. It was Lady's morning, so she was up and ready to go too. We went for a hike in Callie's woods.

While the morning was cool, as the moon sat low in the sky, it was a great day for a sniff!

We usually access the woods through our yard, but instead we passed Callie's house, went down the road (which is also her peoples) and entered in the back.

This put us on trails we don't usually use, and we found this. We asked the people about it and sometime in the winter, one of the kids put this here and so duckie lives in the bush now. 

Lady laughed when Phod got a little caught under the leash as he is not as agile as me.

Of course, we worked on our synchronized sniffing.

We were back in the house around 6 am. Some of us were ready to go back to bed and some of us watched an hour of the coronation of our king before getting the housework done. Man is grateful as he would not have enjoyed Lady vacuuming at 6:30 am. 

While Lady was slightly annoyed we were up so early, she was glad to get so much done. Also, she was really glad her morning wasn't Sunday because some boy dog, needed to go out at 5 am.


  1. wow well done... 5 am is a super time... bravo ;O)

    My mum always used to say, 'an hour in the morning saves the whole day'... so, Lee, you were doing Lady a favour! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. What a beautiful photo of the moon! Yes, I've had those 5:20 mornings, or even the call at 3:15....I see you have the rare white Canadian Wood Duck in your vicinity. :)

  4. we are all 3 of us early birds so no problem on the early am out doors trips and sniffing expeditions. we have ducks but not your kind of duck. also to get to walk in the woods like you do we have to ride first in the car, so you are lucky to be walking distance to woods.

  5. Phod and Lee give Lady 87 standing ovations for the gorgeous photo of the moon. WOW
    BOL Phod and His man bonded early on Sunday
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. It's funny how the pawrents get all bent ur of shape at getting up when we do...but in the end, they are happy about it!
    Good job Hailey!!

  7. That sounds like a fun walk in the woods. We love the little stuffie bird in the tree. BOL!

  8. What a nice walk you had! Though the mom says there’s no way she’d be out there at 5:30am. MOL!
