Monday Mischief


Hope all of you had a wonderful Independence Day. The only day that the weather was really bad over the long weekend was sadly the day itself, July 4th. The other days were beautiful. Mom missed her parade. They refused to postpone and Mom refused to get soaked in the rain. We won because we had Mom, Dad, and one of our favorite human cousins for the whole day to ourselves. Don't tell Mom, but we were performing a rain dance. However, we were duly punished when the rain came with thunder. We may have to rethink the whole rain dance as a means of preventing the parents from leaving home thing. Those thunder boomers are no fun.

Mom's birthday is this week and we are working hard trying to decide what we should do for her birthday. While Katy and I love bones, treats, and squeaky toys, Mom really isn't into that stuff.

Dog Dad suggested we let Mom sleep in. You see we have this habit of performing health checks on our humans. It is important that if they are in bed after expected times that we check to make sure they are alive and well. We regularly perform this morning duty at no additional charge for our pet parents. In fact we do it for guests, too. Katy found her human cousin asleep over the holiday and decided to do a health check and poked her awake. Once awake, Bailey decided she was available for distributing attention. Dog Dad couldn't possibly mean suspending doing this to Mom for a morning could he? After all, providing safety health checks is a valuable service. By poking humans in bed, we assure they are in fact alive and responding. Stopping this for a day hardly seems like a safe birthday present. However, Dog Dad insists this would be something Mom would truly love.

It can't have annoyed our human cousin too much because Dog Dad says she's coming back to stay with us when the parents have to travel to something called a wedding.

We have a more pressing problem. We really have to find a better gift for Mom.

  2. Secretly humans love their morning health checks! You wouldn't want your mom to miss a minute of her birthday now, would you?

  4. Good job on the health checks. I too monitor my humans, especially my mom very closely - all day, every day.

  5. Well you COULD just let her sleep in fur like 87 extra Seconds... that would solve BOTH issues...
    OR you could give your mom a nice selection of Snacks... like Milkbones and Zukes and Blue Buffalo... How could she NOT love THOSE fur celebrating her Birfday?

  8. Our Chewy performs health check on the dad in the mornings. Tell mom to be grateful that her health checks don't involve biting of nose and ears!

  14. I bet Mom would just like a lot of kisses for her birthday.

    Too cute about your health checks. Luckily Rita is uninterested in our health, and she lets us sleep LATE on the weekends. Sometimes we get up and she's still in bed! It's her best quality. :)

    Jealous of your rain! It's hot and dry here still!

  15. Mr. N adores sleeping in as well so it's usually not a problem for me unless he really has to go to the bathroom!

  16. Those health checks seem too important to skip. I'm sure some extra snuggle time would make for a wonderful gift :)

  17. So your Mom has a July birthday also. Yep July is my birthday month along with my peeps birthday month. Now when she reads the zodiac signs she will be thinking it is your Moms birthday month also. You know cancer is a water sign maybe that is why it rained on the parade and your rain dance had nothing to do with the weather.
    Thanks for being a friend

  18. Health checks are a very important dog duty! Maybe there is a no-thunder bark that you can add to the rain dance? I look forward to what you come up with for mom's birthday...

  19. I, Walter, always perform this service for my humans. Millie just keeps sleeping.

  20. I bet you guys find a really good present for your mom! Those health checks are such a good idea!

  21. The Moms DO love sleeping in. TRUST ME! I can't wait to see what you get your mom for her big day!

  22. I can't imagine Dog Dad wants you to stop the health checks, they sound like a great idea!

    I don't do the poke, I just either yawn loudly (can't get into trouble for that, hey?!) or I put my head through the blinds and make loadsa noise - Tee Hee

    Happy Birthday to your Mom,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  23. Health checks are important but I think your mom would really love getting to sleep in once in a while! ;)

  24. Happy upcoming Birthday! I hope you enjoy your sleep-in day. And I hope it doesn't rain. We had the opposite weather over the holiday. The 4th was perfect, then it rained the next day.

  25. We have health checks around here too but usually not in the morning. My two sleep in every day but it is the only time there are no health checks, lol.
