Workin’ Hard At Creating Mischief On Labor Day!

Did you know that Shetland Sheepdogs are considered to be working dogs?   From Wikipedia: “They are vocal, excitable, energetic dogs who are always willing to please and work hard. They are partly derived from dogs used in the Shetland Isles for herding and protecting sheep.The breed was formally recognized by the Kennel Club in 1909.”

Well, I don’t have any sheep to herd or protect, and with this being Labor Day in America, I had to find SOMETHING to work hard at!  Does causing mischief qualify as hard work?


To those in the U.S., HAPPY LABOR DAY! To everyone else, HAPPY MISCHIEF MONDAY!!

Barks and licks and love,


Mischief Monday-Dinner!!!

Hi guys! Here is some “mischief” that goes on at our house EVERY DAY!!

My kitty brother, Cody, and I begin to “circle” my Dad beginning at about 3pm. Why? We are getting hungry! (We are “early bird special” diners in this house…chalk it up to having older-than-dirt pawrents!)

My Dad says this same thing every time he serves us dinner!

We apologize for the poor video quality, it was kinda dark in the room….

Watch closely at what my brother Cody does at the end!

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Monday Mischief- Uh-Oh

Exhibit A

Just a normal basket of toys….right?


The toys are hiding an AWFUL secret

Does this face look like it would do….THIS????!!!!



Mommy is very upset with me. YES. I did do this. Not in one day mind you, but over  time. It isn’t ALL my fault. I am not a bad doggy I swear.

I can’t control myself when the two doggies who live across the hall come out. They run straight for my door. I have to protect my territory. I am on 24-hr security and NEVER get a break!

I must protect our home from intruders of the canine persuasion.

I “get it” but Mom doesn’t.

She says soon our wall and door will be gone and all of my efforts will be for naught.

In the meantime, does anybody in Southeastern Michigan know of someone who can come and FIX OUR DOOR….preferably with metal?

Barks, “wood/paint chip licks” and love, Dakota….aka……..KILLER
