Tattle Tale Tuesday



So yesterday Mr. Lightning was on the prowl for some mischief.  Many of you so graciously offered to help him out.  Are you wondering if there was mischievous activity here yesterday and did Lightning find it?  Read on and you will find out.


Mischief?????  From me?????  Are you totally off your rocker???  I usually sleep in until at least 4:00 p.m.




Well, yes, once upon a time, it could have been me.




I remember well many exciting adventures involving mud, holes, critters, gardens.
 

 But now that I am seven, I have left those puppyish behaviors behind (heh heh).




Now you KNOW I have the face of innocence. 




HEY, wait a minute!!!!  Why are you all looking at ME????





In fact, I am quite proud to tell you that I was INSIDE when all the fun began.  Want to see what happened?




Well, we don't have any photos of the actual event because the Momster was too freaked out to think to grab the flashy beast. But here is a post-mischief photo.




"Somepup" had found this hissing critter and was flipping it up in the air.  We don't know our snakes very well, but we are pretty sure this is a harmless one, but STILL . . .   That rake is just a little biped one, not a full sized adult one.  And do you know who that Somepup was?????





Yep, it was ME, Ciara - I found him in the grass and I was having such a great time tossing him up in the air.  He didn't taste very good, but it was still fun UNTIL the Momster spotted me through the window and came out shrieking at me to LEAVE IT!!!  Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.





See, you were all wrong.  Now let's get this post done so I can chomp on that sweet potato cookie.


Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

SNAKE! EEEEK! OMD that is too much mischief for me!

The Websters said...

Ciara! You are so brave! We have one of those snakes that lives in our garden (totally safe but ultra freaky) and I had a show down with him last year...Couldn't bring myself to chomp him though!

I did catch a vole this morning though and while Mrs. Master was taking Ollie in, I ROLLED IN IT!

Ciara, you are very brave! If our mommy had seen you with a snake she would've screamed so loud they would have heard her in Omaha!

Arno Vom Altvilstal said...

Dear Ciara, you are a girl I could fall in love at once! You are so brave and dangerous at the same time! I'm very impressed, really!
Love
Arno

Mrs. JP said...

Oh Ciara,,,don't you ever, ever do that again! I hate those things,,,in my humble opinion,,,there are no "good" ones. LOl...Lightning did have a bit of a guilty look though.

Sagira said...

EEEKKKKK!!! Snakes in the real furs? My mom would have been screaming to!

Furry Bottoms said...

It runs in the blood! If it isn't Ciara, it has to be you, Lightning. If it isn't Lightning, it most probably is Ciara.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

WHOA WHOA.... HOLD YOUR SQUIRRELS here... WHAT??? I (Frankie Furter) am soon gonna be SEVEN and I am not one bit happy to hear that I am gonna have to give up ANY of the FUN STUFFS that I Love... ARE YOU SURE we have to do that when we are SEVEN?? If so.. I am just gonna stay SIX.

Now about that SNAKE... CIARA you were really BRAVE. Snakes kinda SCARE us. Never tasted one though.

Nola said...

OMD Mom would have freaked! She HATES snakes.

Mitch and Molly said...

We've never played with a snake before. Our mom would be freaking out! She hates snakes!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

we agree ----eeeeekkkkk snake!!! Well done Ciara for finding it - not sure playing with was a great idea.

sagechronicles said...

Well, that's quite the mischief, Ciara! You were only having fun. Mom remembers one of her kitties running down the hill behind our house (when they lived in Boise) with a 40" garter snake in her mouth. Dad was always 'releasing' snakes back up the hill.

scotsmad said...

We KNEW Ciara was NOT over the mischief stage.

Our snakes are 99% poisonous...only the pythons aren't, so we have to stay away from ALL snakes.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Dexter said...

Oh, I can hear the shrieking of the human pitching a fit when you were just having fun. Well, it was good while it lasted.

Kisses,
Dexter

NanaNor's said...

Hi there, So very thankful that the snake was just a garden variety and not something that could make you very ill. We got a lot of rattlers in our yard when we lived in northern Ca. but I'm thankful we don't have them here-at least not in the yard. You were so obedient to "leave it"-well done.
Happy Paws,
Noreen & Hunter

Lorenza said...

OMD!
Ciara!
Sure you are brave!
My mom remembers a close encounter with a snake... and she says it was Take care
Kisses and hugs

Kat said...

What mischief! I think that's a garter snake, but I'm no snake expert either. Is it ok?

GOOSE said...

Ciara the snake wrangler. hahahha. I get snakes sometimes in my yard too. But now for the most part I let them alone.... for the most part.
Enjoy your treat. It is well deserved.
Blessings,
Goose

haopee said...

You're one brave Husky, Ciara. Girl power rules!

Glad to hear you caught it while it was still small.

What Remains Now said...

I can imagine that flipping a snake around would be a very satisfying feeling. I can also imagine being like mom and freaking out.

On a side note...Twinkie is our kitty! Bet you didn't know we had a kitty. She's 17 years old and doesn't get much blog time. I'm going to update my post because I forget that a lot of folks don't know about Twinkie. Thank you for asking.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

OH! ICKY SCARY!!! I HATE snakes. The only good snake is a dead snake!

I do a "snake dance" when I see one that involves running by kicking my legs high in the air (Think drum major style) while shrieking in a high pitched voice: SNAKE SNAKE SNAKE!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh I am afraid of snakeys!
But I do like sweet potatoe snackys.
love tweedles

Two French Bulldogs said...

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Oh NO ... You sure got that look. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

harrispen said...

Ciara we think playing with a snake looks just like playing with a rope toy. Too bad you couldn't get one of your brothers to play tug of war with you and the snake.

KB said...

What fun Ciara! Not only did the snake hiss but your mom shrieked. Way to go, girl!

Priscilla Phang said...

OMD!!! Snake!!! My mom would have screamed her lungs out. Anyway, I'll leave that slimy thing alone.

Prancer Pie said...

Oh my cat, we can't believe it's time for those critters to be out and about! Scary! Your poor Mom.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Momma reacts the same way when Puff and Nuka go lizard hunting...the snake game sounds like they would join right in. Me? I prefer the sweet potato cookie idea!

Molly The Wally said...

OMD Clara you found a sneaky snake. Bet that was great fun playing catch with it. What can we say but the peeps always spoil our fun and yes it usually involves lots of shrieking. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

The Florida Furkids said...

Our woofies will chase a snake in our yard sometimes. Mom is very grateful that the snakes are faster than the woofies because she would freak if she saw them playing with one.

Madi and Mom said...

Ciara the only girl and fearless!!!
Your brothers must be very proud of you.

PS Mom says all snakes are dangerous 'cause no matter whether they are poison they would scare her to death same result as being poison
Hugs madi your BFFF

Elyse and Riley said...

Oh gosh...I would have FREAKED! I freaked out about the frog I found in the flower bed last week. You sure are brave, Ciara! I bet you were having tons of fun flipping that snake up in the air! Yuck.

Elyse and Riley

easyweimaraner said...

Be careful Ciara, that's a dangerous kind of air streamer ...

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Well, well, we take it all back - it is Princess Ciara who is the mischief maker, BOL!

Rebekah said...

I would have shrieked if I was your mom, too!

FiveSibesMom said...

How can I translate a loud shriek on a comment??? OMG! Snakes are a four-letter word here...Ciara, really? You? Wow...I would have so guessed Lightning (sorry, boy, bad rap, I know)...sounds like Ciara was having a grand ol' time...eek...shiver, shudder....
(glad every pup was OK and it wasn't a biter). Shiver, shudder, shriek...

SissySees said...

Oddly, timid little Gg is a snake-hunter. It makes me CRAZY.

Sissy likes sand crabs and was very upset that none were spotted at the beach.

Cocoa and Melon said...

Been away for a while so got a bit to catch up on but we thought it was Thunder Dunder the snake charmer!
We LOVE this post - your Momster is very good at blogging!

Frank The Tank said...

Bow-Wow I have never met a snake before, it sounds like you had such a fun time playing with him until your Momma spotted you, such naughtyness, I think your brave, I would never have gone near it! Love and Hugs from your Furiend Frank XxxxX
