Monday Mischief

Mischief Monday started at 4:45 a.m. 
when Dui decided it was time to play.

SHE opened the sliding door and
'me first' Roxy charged out knocking the screen door off its track.

We went back to bed for an hour.  SHE wasn't interested in playing.

 Please excuse the absence of photos for this next bit.

As we were getting ready to go to the river, 
SHE noticed that Dui had a baby bird!
He was racing around with it cheeping and flapping in his mouth.
The mother bird was dive bombing Dui and
SHE was chasing him.
Dui released the baby to chase the mother, and SHE tried to pick up the baby,
who fluttered into the bushes.

He was left there in hopes that the mother could get him out of the backyard
 while we were at the river.

We had to be indoor dogs on our return.

Next, we had a STORM, with thunder, lightning and hail!

SHE took a photo of our flooded patio.
 When SHE looked again.  There was that baby bird,
Sitting in the water!
SHE took the photo and turned to put the phone down to put the baby somewhere dry, only to find he was gone!
Next, Dui went out and chucked up a green plastic bag.
We don't know where he got that!
Roxy and Dui are currently outdoors, the sun is shining, so
there will probably be more mischief before Monday is over!

 You'll notice that one perfect puppy is missing from this list.

Might be a long week.

  4. OMD what a start to the week. Hope baby bird is OK. We too have rain and high winds. Not the best beginning for a new week. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Boy, your day sure started out with a bang. We hope it calms down by the day's end!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  6. Dui Dui Dui your monday mischief has left us speechless....and that rarely happens.
    Holy Moley you are one busy Scottie
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Wow, it sure is 'citin at yur place! Whut will the rest o' the week bring?

  8. Boys will be boys - they do tend to be a little more mischievious

  9. OMD I (Frankie Furter) am more and more SURE that Roxy and Ernie were MEANT fur each other... they BOTH have the ME FIRST mentality... He hasn't taken the screens off track... butt he HAS punched holes in them with his HUGE PAWS and CLAWS...
    OMD the baby bird... Flapping and Cheeping in Dui's mouth.. THAT must have been VERY much exciting... What a TREASURE...
    HAIL Columbia... we did not know that you ever got much hail... and that is a LOT of it. PLUS you got enough RAIN to flood the patio. THAT must have been very refreshing fur the plants and stuffs.
    WE think this was a very EXCITING way to start your MONDAY.

  10. OMD you have the best mischief, I have never caught a baby berd. Youz got some really bad hail there. Missed you guys xxoxxxx

  11. That's an awfully early start to the mischief! Glad Dui threw up that bag. Wouldn't want that taking a trip through the plumbing!

  12. Dui needs to take on something more challenging than a baby bird-like a cricket.

  13. Oh my! What a Monday, we just do not know what else to say, but we are sure that Angel Greta is looking down and loving every minute of that mischief

  14. Thats enought Monday Mischief for a whole month!, hope that baby bird made his escape.

  15. We are not chuckling at your challenging day. Hope the week settles!

  16. Whoa, you all really know how to start the week on an interesting note(s). Hope the little birdie found his way home.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  17. I'm exhausted from just reading your post, sounds like Dui and Roxy were on a real tear this morning. I hope Bella got extra treats today for being so good....yeah she should be up on a pedestal or something, just sayin'.

    Aroo to you,

    Aroo to you,

  18. How is it possible for all of this to happen in ONE day?! It's not even a full moon!! Good girl, Bella!!

  19. Crikey .... hope you make it to Friday!!!!

  20. O...M...D! All of this in ONE day!? Bella, if you need to get away from the craziness, we have a bed waiting for you.
    Wally & Sammy

  21. Wow, looks like Mum doesn't like Mondays :)

  22. Hey Dui, that's a wee bit early for peeps. You'd have liked our Samba. She liked to get about 3 AM and gaze at the stars. We really hope the weeks gets better as it goes on because that's one really bad start.

  23. That sounds like a mischief packed Monday for sure - and hailstorms too! Hope things have got better now and that little bird is OK. Woofs and licks from Magic xx
