Monday Mischief?



Yep, the Momster picked ME again for the Mischief on Monday post.
 

 


But wait until you see what I have to show you!!! 





 I was enjoying some quiet time on the deck by myself - you know my pack mates can be so rowdy sometimes.





 Hmmmm, something doesn't seem quite right here.  I don't think I should be able to put my head through here.




 I just know she is going to say I did it.  I will close my eyes and wish with all my heart that the glass will reappear.






 Now what do I do?  I think the Momster is going to need more than just my wish to fix this one.



Woos - Lightning

Note from the Momster:  Lightning for a change is totally innocent here.  Our glass-topped table became a victim of the horrible heat of this summer.  With no witnesses, and no pups outside, it suddenly shattered.  And when I say shattered,  I mean shattered, like into about 10,000 itsy bitsy pea-sized pieces.  I spent a long time popping all the shards out from in between the boards - not a lot of fun.  I should have taken pics but trying to get it totally cleaned up before the pups and the grandbipeds came out was a major undertaking.  Needless to say, the new table will NOT have a glass top.

Woof! Woof! Read so much about the Summer HEAT. So sorry to hear about your glass table. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I've given up on glass tables here in AZ - the same thing has happened to so many of them. Our last one that shattered we replaced with heavily varnished wood, and had a lot of fun painting a design on it!

OMD.... there was just a whole big thingy on the Columbus News about glass topped tables... EXPLODING like that... It has been happening a LOT this summer..
Sorry it happened to YOURS... butt at LEAST no one was hurt.

Priscilla said...

What a mystery! It sounds terrible but I'm glad nobody was hurt.

I'm so glad that you're INNOCENT in this case, Lightning!

Remington said...

Sorry your table broke....that must have been really something to clean up....

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh wow I am just so glad that there was no one there when it broke. Shattered glass is horrible because it gets everywhere..Maybe you can get some nice wood cut to shape for the table.. Hugs GJ xx

Casey said...

OMD! I didn't know that could happen. What a relief that there were no dogs or little humans running around when it happened.

Oh NO! What a clean-up job that must have been! Glad there was no one to blame, though! And enjoy the air through the table whilst you can. Lightning!

Woofs,
Tommy

... and people keep asking why I have that obnoxious wrought iron table... The top is the same "woven" surface as the seated portion of the chairs. No, I wouldn't risk fine crystal on it, but it's safe for the dogs and holds plastic ware just fine.

harrispen said...

So glad nobody was out on the deck when that happened. Love the pictures of Lightning looking like he is on a guilt trip over the table top.

Wow! That's scary. Glad no one was out on the deck when it shattered and I can imagine what a pain picky up all those pieces would be.

Collie222 said...

Wow! I'm so glad that no one was outside when it happened!

NanaNor's said...

Hey there, I'm so glad that no one was around to get hurt. You are very lucky-there could have been some serious and costly injuries.
Hope you have a great afternoon.
Woofs, Noreen & Hunter

Ruby said...

Oh no! Well, I KNEW Lightning COULD NOT have done anythin' like that! I'm so glad no peeps or pups were outside when it happened! That would have been awful. Well, at least you'll get a new table set out of it, huh?

Kisses,

Ruby

scotsmad said...

Lightning, we wonder why she always picks YOU for mischief Monday....hmmmm..do the others just hide better?

Never heard of glass shattering like that from heat...you learn something every day. AND what a job keeping all those pieces out of paws and feet!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

Hope Phantom is feeling better.

Lorenza said...

Glad you all were not there outside when it happened!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

So glad no dogs or humans were near the table when it shattered!

jen said...

That stinks that your table broke! I never thought about that with the glass and the heat!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

That naughty table!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

The heat has been really something this year! I can't imagine all the shards you must have had to clean up!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Glad no one was hurt and that Lightning was innocent! The weird thing is that your table is the second one we heard of today that shattered over the weekend into bazillions of pieces. Makes us nervous about the glass top on our table on the back deck (but it is shaded so maybe that helps?)

Joules Prescott said...

Oh no! Thank goodness no one was around when that glass shattered. And your poor mom, cleaning out every single shard. Did a vaccuum help?
We know you aren't that big of a trouble-maker, Lightning! :)
your furbuddies,
joules & prescott

sagechronicles said...

Pshew, Lightning. I know you were breathing a sigh of relief. Thank goodness it was tempered, but I KNOW what a mess that must have been. Sage & her pal Toby broke the glass door to an entertainment cabinet at Toby's house not too long ago (fortunately Sage was not the culprit) and we spent quite some time cleaning that up too.

Mango said...

Glad no doggies were hurt, but I bet you were sore after cleaning up and making sure there were no bits of glass anyplace where human puppies or doggies could get at them. Never knew that could happen.

SO glad no one or pup was injured. When Gibson was 2, he used to jump up on our glass patio table, and lo-and-behold, that summer it too shattered into a billion pieces and we thought it was because of Gibson parking himself up there (and that was when he was a much lighter pup)...it's amazing what the summer heat can do. (Of course, I'm sure in our case, Gibson always standing on it didn't help the wire frame). Thankfully, Gibson was not on it nor was he or Harley anywhere near it when it broke, but it was some loud crash. Nowadays, we do have another glass topped one...but it is on another side of the deck that the Husky kids can not go on! (They have our old side!)
