Monday Mischief

Monday Mischief with ME again????

Why am I always the one who gets called "mischievous"?  Well, check this out and see what you think.

The following photos were not staged in any way.  This REALLY happened.

Last week Mom was upstairs putting away laundry while the twin grandbipeds were enjoying cupcakes.  The girl twin C only eats the frosting on her cupcake, silly girl.

When Mom came downstairs, this is what she saw.

Yep, I spotted the remaining cake and had my eye on the goodie.

With the way I am always portrayed here as the bad boy, I bet you are thinking I dove right in for the prize.

You might be surprised to know that I just sat there like I do for my dinner and waited for Mom to give me the "OK" release.

Anytime now would be good, Mom.  I have been sitting and waiting for a long time while you put away all that laundry.

Now???  C'mon, Mom - I have been so good.

Wait, where are you going?  The dishwasher can wait to be emptied.  I need to fill my belly.

Maybe if I just close my eyes and make a wish, I will taste that yummy goodness.

Well, it took a while. but I did finally get a taste - AND I had to share with my siblings.  But we all ate it so fast, Mom didn't get a pic - serves her right for making me wait so long.

Woos, Lightning

That doesn't look like mischief at all! I'm so impressed with how well you waited. I would've sneaked at least a little taste first.

Stewey said...

Lightning - I am super impressed with your self-restraint!!! Good for you!

Mr. Pip said...

Would you believe my sissy only likes the cake not the frosting! I am very impressed with your patience. I would have grabbed that cupcake (if it was in my reach).

Your pal, Pip

Well deserved bit of cake for being so patient. Have a happy Monday Woos.
Best wishes Molly

now... why do they call you a pest or mischievious? i can't imagine why!

GOOSE said...

Very impressive, very impressive indeed. I would have been sitting in a pool of my own drool if I had to wait that long.

harrispen said...

I don't see any mischief going on there. You did a great job guarding that cupcake from all your siblings and making sure everyone got their fair share.


Jo's World said...

I would have inhaled the cupcake right on the spot. Like the poster says "Life is short, eat dessert first!"


Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Hey Lightning!
Wow, you were so very patient! I think I would have been in deep trouble. I bet it was worth the wait...even without the icing. BOL
Grr and Woof,

Hi Lightning, I am so impressed by your stay/wait. What a good pup you are! Your mom must have spent hours on your training; I really need to start working with Hunter. I would love him to be as well trained as you.
Glad you did get to enjoy at least part of the cupcake.
Wags, Noreen

Finn said...

I wouldn't have been able to wait if I saw a piece of cake around! You definitely deserved a big piece!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Lightning! You are such a good boy!!! So glad ya'll all got a bite!

Tell the girly to break the bottom half of the cupcake off and put it on top of the icing... evens things out! But WAIT! If she did that, there wouldn't be any for YOU! Never mind...

rottrover said...

Lightning! What a good, good boy!! We never,ever would have been so good!!

Nola said...

Marg said...

Oh Lightning, those pictures of you sitting there looking at that cupcake is sooooo cute. We think you are a very very good boy to not take the cupcake. Great pictures. Try to stay cool.

The Websters said...

Dear Lightning,

You are absolutely a very good boy. OBVIOUSLY!

I have some post foster brother blues. You can come play anytime.

OMD! You are such a good pup. I, too, have the sit and wait for my dinner, but man, I don't know if sniffin' that yummy cupcake goodness, if I could have waited! What a good boy you are.



BeadedTail said...

You actually waited? Whoa Lightning! You are a very good boy! Nobuddy here would have waited but then again, frosting is our favorite part so we would have had to beat the bean to that part!

You are such a good dog. How could your Mom possibly put this in a mischief post? You behaved like an angel

jen said...

Princess Jasmine said...

Wow, you are so good to wait patiently for that piece of cake. I know I couldn't do it. I can't even wait for it to go in the oven to be baked before I try to get some. You deserve a big treat for being so good :)xx

Tucker The Crestie said...

Lightning, I don't think we can call you mischievous ANYMORE! What a GOOD boy you were not to snarf down that cupcake before Mom said it was ok, and how nice of you to share with your siblings!

Anonymous said...

Hiya Lightening! I just hopped over from Khyra's Khorner...I am so impressed with how much restraint you showed. And you did it while looking so handsome! What a guy! Mom and Dad used to have 3 Sibes many years before they got me...Mischa, Crusty and Rose. They are on my bloggy page called AniFamily Remembering, they were really pretty and oh so fun! Mom trained and showed them and Mischa was an obediance champ!

Sagira said...

What a good boy! We just kind of help ourselves around this place even though we are supposed to wait.

scotsmad said...

Boy, you were good, Lightning. Was it because you were being watched?

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

K9 Katastrophie said...

What a good boy!

Mitch and Molly said...

You are the best boy, Lightning, and you should have gotten to eat the entire cupcake all by yourself for being so good!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

sprinkles said...

My boys have absolutely NO self control when it comes to food! I'm thinking I need to send them to your house for a bit of (ok, a LOT) training. bol

Prancer Pie said...

What a GOOD boy you are! This post should have read, "Good Manners Monday"!

Lorenza said...

I can't believe you did not get it!
I know I am not able to resist a treat so very close to me!
Good boy!
Kisses and hugs

I can't believe you waited so long Lightning!! Food on any tables doesn't stand a chance around here. We are always testing and keeping the humans on their toes. Hee Hee!!

houndstooth said...

Lightning, you have even more willpower than me! I would not have been able to wait so long, that's for sure!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Lightning- you have such self control!
I am impressed!
And the little taste was worth it- right?

Joules Prescott said...

Wow, that is amazing you can wait like that! Mama is pointing at your picture here and telling us that this is what we should be like.
Your furbuddies,
Joules & Prescott

Lightening you were very good. I saw Fenris eating off the table. I thinks he is a very BAD dog. ~Scylla
