Monday Mischief?

Why is it that whenever a post has the word "mischief" in it, there I, Lightning, appear???

Well, today I think it is Mom who is up to some mischief even IF she says I am the one who causes all the mischief.

I wonder what these things are for and what they have to do with somePup getting into mischief.  I have to add here that normally when I see these flags posted on the streets where we walk, they freak me out.  But they seem pretty harmless right now.

 Mom says there are ONLY eight of these yellow flags left.  Hmmmm, I wonder what she did with the other 16???

Oh, here is one of them outside.  What could it be for?

I found another one by the fence.

What was that, Mom?  I am not supposed to pull them out and chew them?

What about this one I found in the middle of the lawn?

Well, enough of that - there ARE indeed 16 of those flags scattered through MY yard.  Mom says there will be some reseeding done here tomorrow to try to "fix" all the bare spots that somePupS caused.  The flags mark the sprinkler heads.  If I decide to pull them up, then the men won't be able to do their job properly.

 So THAT'S what all the talk about mischief is.  Well, I will try, but I can't make any promises - you never know when I might have to take care of removing those intruding flags from MY yard.  Mom says I need to try really hard for the next 24 hours to tolerate them:)

In other news, Mom tricked me into taking a ride in the car.  I think SHE was the mischievous one. She carted me off to the V.E.T.  for my annual exam.  I got all my vaccinations up to date, got some nice hugs from the vet tech, and visited with Dr. B. - you know, that nice man who took such good care of Angel Phantom.  He was very nice to me and told Mom he really has missed us.  It was our first visit back to our regular vet since Phantom left us almost six months - he even told Mom he was very surprised she hasn't showed up with a new sibling for us:)  I really like Dr. B. even if he said I was a very healthy goofball!

Ciara wants you all to know that life has settled down again - no new visits from the evil monster.

So I brought her outside with me to show her what Mom had done - Mom told her she has to snoopervise me and make sure I don't mess with those flags.  I told Ciara she will have to come up with a good bribe for me:)

Woos - Lightning (and Ciara)

Monday Mischief does it ever stop.
Hope you can resist moving the flags.
I ate the cats food today and my mom

I am always suspicious of alien flags in my yard! I would bark at them!

Marg said...

Oh Lightning you are just the best. So so glad to hear that the seizure monster hasn't come to visit you lately. Maybe it is because of storms. Love the flag story. Better leave those flags along Lightning. You all have a great day.

The Army of Four said...

Wait - you're NOT supposed to pull those things up? That explains the "nonomaggieno" I got on our walk the other day when I tried to snag one out of a neighbor's yard. Wow. Very informative, Lightning!
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

are you sure those flags were put in place to show you where you CAN make mischief :)

Chef Sasha said...

Lightning I am very glad that you are all checked up. You must do whatever is needed to protect your yard, so do what you will with those flags. Ciara, I am so happy that the monster is staying away, but I will cross paws for you to stay away for good.

Ziggy OUt!!

Brian said...

I think you should collect those flags for Mom Lightening, they shouldn't be out after dark. I'm glad your Vet visit went well Lightening snd that the monster is not bugging you Ciara.

Ruby said...

Lightning, I don't knows what your Moms expects of you!!! If those were in my yardie (and we actually HAD a lawn left :( ) then I would pull them out too! I would run around the yardie with them in my mouth and make Ma try and catch me...not that I ever have DONE that or anythings....hehehehe
I am doin' a happy dance at both your check up and Ciaras evil monster stayin' away!! YEA!!!! Oh, and I don't knows WHY your Moms hasn't made you a new SIBEling from your blown furs either....what's with that???

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I dont think I ever want to get near one of those little flags,, it just might be a monster in them.

Were glad the seizure monster has not been back

Angel Prancer Pie said...

We hardly see how the Mom can hold you responsible seeing as how you were just trying to help. Being adorable cancels out most wrongdoings, too!

KB Bear said...

I think your mom is being unreasonable. If those scary flags are taking over your yard, you have every right to defend the family by removing them!!!!

I'm so glad that you had a good vet visit and that Ciara has had peaceful days.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We wonder how long those little flags will last. There may be some funny business with marauding squirrels if you aren't careful. They just may move them or even take them away. So happy the seizure monster is gone. We hope he stays away.

Mitch and Molly said...

Those yellow flags would be too tempting for Molly not to uproot too, Lightning! We are keeping our paws crossed that the seizure monster stays away, Ciara.

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

I can't believe your mom thinks you would ever do anything bad. You are pure goodness!

Ciara, I'm so glad you are doing better!

Oz theTerrier said...

I don't know why your name always appears with the word "mischief" because you are such a good, well behaved doggie. I mean honestly...I think your mom is the mischief maker over there.

Anonymous said...

Gosh those flags are just ASKING to be pulled out of the ground - good luck overcoming that temptation!!! Very happy to hear that Ciara has had no more visits from that evil monster....we're sending lots of POTP - maybe that's helping?

Love and Hugs, Sammy

Lightening pull those things out of the lawn when moms not looking

Sue said...

Well, you could take them out and stick them back in different places. That would confuse everybody and no one would know it was you that did it. Just sayin.....

NanaNor's said...

Just think you only have to leave the flags alone for a day or so...then you can investigate all you want. I'm glad Ciara is feeling better-that is such good news.
Have a wonderful day!

Millie and Walter said...

We're with you Lightening. Why would your mom put those things in your yard if not for you to play with?

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

We agree that leaving all those little flags alone is quite a tall order, Lightning. Good luck! It's good to hear you are such a healthy boy and we are very happy that the monster is leaving Ciara alone.


Jeanne Pursell said...

We totally agree Lightning! Flags can be kind of freaky sometimes!! Be careful!! Glad to hear everyone is feeling well!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Stay away from the flags.

Our mommy was the naughty one here, she brought two little meowy things home.

Priscilla Phang said...

No treats from Mom after the VET? So glad to hear that everything is fine and hope you did get some treats after being tricked! We're so happy that Ciara is a happy girl again too.

Jans Funny Farm said...

That's it, always throw in the bribe factor to "help" you behave. Good job!

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Most excellent news about Ciara and that evil seizure monster! Hope you were a good boy Lightning and that Mom got her reseeding done!
