All For Evil!

My young padawans, you have passed my School of Disobediance lessons! You must now take the lessons I have given and strive to accomplish your own evil goals. For this, I award you all the following Diploma!

Hang it proudly, my fellow pugs, and remember: ALL FOR EVIL! Or broccoli, whichever you can get!

Disobediance Lesson Number Four - Keep Your Eye On The Goal

and don't be distracted by short term goals.

Like getting the treats out of the treat cabinet and getting the cover off the dog food. These things will tip your parents off to your evil intentions. Play it straight and be good. I know, I know, it's hard, but it will be worth it in the end.

Yup. He Did!!!

 PlusOne got me dressed up to go outside, that mean, rotten....

And he took me into the garage....
And yes, he did, he dropped me INTO the snow! The Brat!

As for Lucky, well, let's just say that PlusOne didn't drop HER into the snow. BRAT!!!

So, New Hampshire has declared a State of Emergency, school has been cancelled for today AND tomorrow, karate classes have been cancelled, and Mom AND Dad's work told them to stay home. I would bark "Yippie" and "Snow Day" except I do NOT want to go out into the snow! Two feet will be taller than me and I don't want to get lost in the back yard. Or blown away. Pardon me while I go snuggle back under the blankets!

Disobediance Lesson Number Three - Misdirection

If your parents are starting to get suspicious with your sudden energy and activities, misdirect them by pulling the toilet paper off the roll, out of the bathroom and into the dining room. Then, when you go back to sitting on chairs, they will think you are behaving and ignore you. lol

PS We're getting a Blizzard tonight into Wednesday...

with upwards of two feet of snow. Anyone want to trade places?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Here's hoping for a MUCH calmer Sunday than last week. 

Lucky's no fool. She's right in front of the electric fireplace. lol 

And I'm in my usual spot. Safe from the whirlwind that is my mother!

Disobediance Class - Lesson Two

One way to keep the parents oblivious to your intentions, is to just start climbing on chairs and sitting there, like you own the place.

 Here is a good example of that.

Next, we will add the climbing on chairs to the stretch to get something like this.

Remember, take it slow. It's best to keep the parents clueless about your intentions.

Disobediance Class Is Now In Session

Several of you have asked how I get onto tables, desks and counter tops. If you want to get on the furniture or get food off the coffee table, first you have to perfect "the Stretch". Here it is.

Here are some examples of a good stretch.

If you have never practiced this, you should start now.

And remember the face. It should be curious and harmless. heh heh Your parents will never know what hit them.

Wordy Wednesday

I think I have to repeat my classes on how to be "BAD"!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Some of you want to know how I get on top of the table. I don't know what to tell you. Usually, I climb on a chair and then onto the table. The only problem is, once I'm there, I usually can't get down.

I have been known to get stuck on tables


and counter tops.
I should be able to get down easily, after all, I climbed up there in the first place, but for some reason, getting down has always been my issue. Not getting up. I suppose that makes sense since I can usually get into trouble much easier than I can get out of it. lol

Missing Again??? Not Really!!!

So yesterday was a veritable nightmare for mom. There was a blockage in the drain from the kitchen sink that mom and the plumber (my pug mom's dad) worked on for hours until they finally fixed it (not before it exploded all over the cellar), Even I didn't go down there to smell that mess! And Plumber man thought it would be funny to say to mom, "I bet Roxy leaves with me!" Mom said "No way". And when Plumber man left (with the door wide open) I didn't move from mom side.

HOWEVER, Dad was doing the dishes and he said, "I hear whining?" Well, Mom freaked! "Where's Roxy?" Well she ran down cellar, looked outside (like I would go outside in the freezing rain). PlusOne ran upstairs, Dad the downstairs. Well, all of a sudden PlusOne goes "There she is!"

I was STUCK on the kitchen table, whining and no one noticed. Sigh! Mom grabbed me and wouldn't let me go for like ten hours because I scared the everything out of her. Lol! Again, mom, like I would go outside in the RAIN, much less the FREEZING RAIN?

The pipe's fixed, the cellar's clean, I'm safe, and mom went to bed before TEN! Quite the day. Let's not have a repeat, please.

Easy Like Sunday Morning...NOT

Mom washed the carpet in the playroom yesterday 

Then took out PlusOne's play table.

This table has been in there for at least thirteen years. Mom certainly got her money's worth.
She's rearranging in there now, which is why I am here
And NOT moving. I'm no dope!

Chicken Soup Saturday

If I'm really lucky, mom will give me some!!!

Friday, January 16, 2015

Did You Know...

That if you put a cup of water in a pan and set it to boil (to make stuffing) and forget about it for, say ten minutes or so, it will smoke. And that when you take the cover off, it will burst into flames. And that the flames will be about 2 feet high. And that when you can't handle the pan anymore and toss it in the sink (because you can't get the cover back on it to smother the flames), it will STILL be flaming. And that when Dad asks you if you need help and you say (quite calmly) "uh, yeah" and he walks in and sees the FLAMING pot in the sink that the flames would STILL be around 2 feet high.

Thank goodness Dad managed to turn the water on to douse the flames. I'm not sure if the pan is going to survive. The other good news is that PlueOne brought home Tempura Chicken so dinner wasn't a total disaster.

Feeling Better

Mom's feeling better. She took a long bath last night and doesn't feel like she's been trampled so much. She thought I was funny though. I kept going into the bathroom and looking at her in the tub wondering when she was going to get out. I think she thought I wanted to join her. NOT A CHANCE. lol. Then again, she was trying to relax so that means no me in the tub!

Truthful Tuesday

Winter bites. I want spring! Or at least a lot of sunshine! I think Mom is fighting the flu as she feels like an elephant trampled her. Honest, it wasn't me!

OMG Heat Wave!

Check out the daytime temperatures! OMG it's a veritable HEAT WAVE, lol. As far as the nights go, you know where to find us!

That's right, under the covers with Mom, Dad and PlusOne!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Can't get any easier than this! Mom's going to make some English Muffin Bread and cookies today. Lucky and I are going to watch. I mean, we could help, but we don't have opposable thumbs. And we both know that EATING the goodies doesn't count as help!

Saturday Snuggling

I don't care if the temperature went up 10 degrees. I need to unthaw from the deep freeze and snuggling is the way to do it!

Proof Mom Loves Me

See, she wraps me up to keep me warm! ~ Lucky

Thursday, January 8, 2015

What Do We Do...

Last night the temperature (with wind chill) was  -40 to -20 F. Today the high temperature is supposed to be 13 degrees F (before the wind chill). So in honor of Dad (who says when it's real cold think warm) we bring you...  Surf Music. That's right, Surf Music. Guaranteed to make you think of beaches, sun, and fun. We hope!

Gotta love Stevie Ray Vaughn and Dick Dale with his wild hair!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

This isn't so much of a Tattle Tale as a "WHAT THE HECK????

Mom was holding Lucky in her arms when she looked at her left front paw and saw this...

There is no nail on her last pad. There was a lot of gunk that mom cleaned off, but the nail was broken?? off right at the base.

Neither mom nor PlusOne have any idea when it happened. Lucky hasn't been crying or bleeding or acting injured but both mom and PlusOne are freaked out over this and have been taking extra special care with Lucky.

As for Lucky, she's perfectly happy letting mom and PlusOne spoil her. I have to admit, I hope her nail grows back, because it really is weird not know what/how it happened.

Back To Work/School Monday

Mom went back to work today and PlusOne went back to school. I don't think Lucky cares much, do you? lol
Actually, I think she does care, she's just smart about it. She knows PlusOne will come back to her and then she'll get all the snuggles she wants.

PlusOne and I are enjoying the last day of his vacation. sigh

My Favorite Spot

On top of the sofa cushions is one of my favorite spots to nap. My sleeping there makes mom have to constantly fluff the cushions. I'm okay with that. Mom, not so much.

Friday, January 2, 2015

Say WHAT???

Why do you have to go back to work, mom? Can't you wait until Monday? Oh man! I really, really liked staying in bed with you until you felt like getting out of bed. You were so nice and warm to cuddle up with. What am I going to do now? Oh yeah, right, PlusOne doesn't have to go back to school until Monday. See you mom, he's warmer than you.
