Spring Fever

Delilah has spring fever.

That’s the only explanation I have.  If I went back through my posts I’m sure I’d discover that last year and the year before at this time, Delilah was getting into mischief.

Technically it’s not like she contains her mischief only to the spring, but it just seems, she’s more active at this time of year.

Our walks normally run about half an hour during the week, and I try to increase them to over 45 minutes on the weekends or on a day off.

Last Wednesday I came home on my lunch and took the dogs for a half hour walk in the woods.  I gave them each a treat and left them to sleep on the couch until I returned home shortly after 5:00 PM.

It worked in my head.

Once I walked in the door however, I immediately noticed that all had not gone according to plan.

I looked at my dogs.

Delilah was surprisingly quiet, sitting off by herself and not interacting with me.

IMG_4252 Why do you always look to me?  Is it because I’m a rescue dog?

No Delilah, it’s because you’re a mischief-maker and this is the Monday Mischief blog hop, hosted by Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog and My Brown Newfies.

    Mom says we are like little kids, we know what we did wrong and by trying not to be obvious, we actually give ourselves up. Some bad dog activities at your house I guess!

    LOL! Sampson is hilarious! I love that picture of him covering his eyes!

    Poor Delilah. I think she is constantly falsely accused. I’m sure there is a reasonable explanation, like some other dog broke in and did it:)))

      Or course there’s a reasonable explanation, she was simply walking by and the door flew open and the contents came out. LOL

    Agree with Caren — the “ain’t no snitch” photo is the best!

    Maybe “spring fever” is what had Ducky so wound up the other night. I know it’s starting to effect Callie & Shadow — they’re wanting to spend more time out in the yard, and Callie is wanting to break free of the leash.

    Love it. I’ll just lay here and wag. Oh, or maybe I’ll go up on the sofa which is my doggie version of flipping you the bird.

    P.S. Meadow loves your voice and if it’s any consolation – SHE came to the computer when you called to see what was up. :-)
