Monday Mischief #23 – Hide and Seek


If the dogs are not in the same room as me (and I don’t know what they’re doing), I immediately become suspicious (in Onyxx’s case) and curious (with Mr. N). Onyxx is usually scavenging for food. He tries to go into the kitchen or licks the carpet in hopes of crumbs or tries to steal food off the desk/table/other surface.

Sometimes though he is just hanging out in his special spot. When he first started hiding, I would look around the house but I couldn’t find him. I then said the magic word “treat” and he came flying out from under the couch. Mr. N has never really shown a desire to go under the couch. He’ll go after toys that have rolled under it but other than that, he ignores it. So Onyxx has it all to himself.

Some of the neighbors reported their lights flickering (we’re under a wind warning) and a tree fell right by us so I took Mr. N to investigate. I just had my phone with me so here’s a terrible flash photo of the damage.

Also I’m getting a new tag for Mr. N and I need to come up with a tagline. It has to be roughly 10-12 characters and preferably several short words although one long one might be squeezed in. Some of the ideas we’re tossing around:

Trix 4 Treats
Evil Genius!
Some Dog
Pure Terrier
Real Dog!
Joie de Vivre (Cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit) 

Which one fits Mr. N best? Other suggestions?

    Pure Terrier or Real Dog! I love the tags with tag lines. Nola has several:
    Got Minions?
    Head Bitch
    Brining Sexy Back
    Bourbon St. Beauty (for her New Orleans namesake)
    You Never Sausage a Wiener

    I want more!

    What a great hiding place buddy, especially when blame's flying around! My Mum gets all suspicious if she doesn't know where I am – doh!

    I like Joie de Vivre – sounds very sophisticated! 🙂

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
