Monday Mischief September 10 2012


The humans that I live with are very patient. Or patient enough, anyway.

For months, maybe even a year, I've scolded other members of the household for "taking apart" the love seat: displacing the slip cover and moving the back pillows, so that it isn't comfortably sat on and is really just a cushiony mess. 

Can you guess whose fault it actually is? Who I've literally watched nose, paw, and stomp all of these things out of place and into disarray?

I'll give you a hint. Her name starts with "E" and ends with "lka".

  2. Starts with an E and ends with lka. Hmmm.

    Hmmm.

    That's a mystery for sure.

  3. That's very sneaky scolding others for something you did. I think my boys could learn a thing or two from you.

  4. Nobody understands the importance of the right cushiony mess. Have you ever tried it? Have you ever layed down after E ... lka has put it together properly? I promise you it will be more comfy than normal *wag wag wag*

    1. I'd love to get Elka one of those dog-sized couches, but they're pretty huge, and I'm sure she would only want to lay on the people one still anyway ^^

    1. I think we humans can be very uptight, as compared to a canine outlook.

  7. Hi Y'all,

    My personal opinion? As long as the stuffing is still inside all this stuff...no harm, no foul! or is it fowl? How many ways can you spell it anyway?

    Y'all come by now,

    1. Oh, we had our days of de-stuffing pillows. Many of the pillows still in use are ones I sewed and/or patched.

    1. She is pretty smart! Really, I let her do it after I realized because I like watching her problem solve.

  11. Ha ha ha! I knew as soon as I started reading who the culprit was! We have the exact same issue here with Blueberry!

    1. I knew I wouldn't be alone in this! Did you spend some time blaming the mister, or was Blueberry a suspect from the start?

  12. Can you give another hint? We almost have it we think. Maybe someone is trying to find a spot in the tall grass?

    1. I think it might hearken back to that tall grass notion!

  13. That is so funny! At least now you know who the offender really is!

    1. The sneakiest! Instead of stealing food she messes with pillows!

  21. LOL, Leroy does the same thing, you should see him rearrange the cushions on our couch! I always say it looks like he is having a fight with the cushions! If he can't get them just they way he wants them he jumps down and walks away, leaving the couch a total mess!

    1. Hah, I can just imagine that "Forget you couch, I didn't need you anyway!"

  22. Freddy likes to powerfully throw pillows off the couch with his snout. He and Buddy also like to really, really dig into blankets and play hide'n'seek.
