Soggy Snow and He Stole My Bone

Last night before we went to bed the snow started to fall! I couldn't wait to get up this morning to see how many inches we got!

Bummer - we didn't get much - only about 2 inches and then it started to rain on top of it so now all we have is sloppy, yucky slush!

Mom wanted to check on our swan, Dauby, so she hooked me up to my flexi leash and off we went for a short walkie!

Mom has been so jealous of all the flower pictures that everyone is posting and she's so longing for spring this year! Our witch hazel is finally beginning to come into bloom! Yeaaaaa - color at long last! This Airedale weathervane is right at the entrance to our back door. You can see the yellow witch hazel over the top of the Dale.

Yesterday everything was going along just fine! Mom was preparing dindin and I had a nice Nylabone to chew on to keep me occupied and Mitch was busy playing tug with mom while she was stirring the clam chowder and setting the table!

All of a sudden this little PIA decides that he wants MY bone! Can you even believe the nerve of him?! That's our clock going tick tock, tick tock in the background.

Check out this next picture! Can you see my paw reaching underneath his elbow to reclaim MY bone! I'll fix him yet!
When will my little brother ever learn to share?!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Blogger ate my comment, just like Mitch took your bone! Anyroo, I was SAYING I can't beLIEVE Mitch took your Nylabone! That's just plain wrong. Did you get it back?
Oh, sure, I take things from Davy, but that's different. I'm his little sister! Hee hee hee!

That stinky little thief!! Reminds me of an annoying little white dog I know.

We had 8 inches of snow last night & it started raining today & it's almost all gone :o(.


Southbaygirl said...

Brothers! I bet they all steal bones! I don't have one so i don't know from experience.

Mom posted more pics of me in front of flowers-tell your mom sorry! But we did see the pretty yellow hues of spring!! It's coming!

You guys got snow again! WOW! I wish I could see it one more time!

I hope you got your bone back Maggie!


Agatha and Archie said...

Hi M&M,

My mom just loves to run-she hadn't been able to for a long time because she had a hurt foot-but now it;s getting batter so she's back at it. I like running with her-it's our time together without the cats!!! But she takes me on walks sometimes as well-walking is just as much fun! I know you guys must love going out with your mom! Aren't moms the best!!


Ben & Darling said... come Mitch growl at you since he is the one stealing your bone??

Joe Stains said...

maggie I can see you pleading as you looked into the camera, for someone to take care of that PIA. Why are little brothers such brats!

Faya said...

Oh Maggie you are so kind with him. He will never learn if you always share...
Kisses, Faya

Noah the Airedale said...

OMG he actually got your bone. We have decided that you two would fit in nicely with our pack. All that barking and's just like watching us!!
Congrats on post of the month. It's an all dale affair.

Hugs and tail wags

It's times like these I'm glad I'm an only dog!!


Noah the Airedale said...

Oh we meant to ask, where did you find that dale weather vane? It's fantastic!!

Dexter said...

Hee hee hee. Raja used to do that to me. She would get all the chews and not even chew on them, just make sure I couldn't.

I'd say Momma should get Mitch his own chew, but my guess is the one in your mouth would always look better to him.

Snowball said...

Maggie, Mitch has no respect for you at all. You should teach him a lesson! hee...


Mojo, Digger and family said...

such a great technique. First, do some bully barking then wait for Maggie to complain to Mum and nick it from under her nose. Cool!

I try bully barking at my folks when I want stuff, but they refuse to hand their lunch over. Maybe I should try the distraction theft thing.


Princess Patches said...

Is that what we have to look forward too when we get a little brother? Penny thinks it's bad enough that I, Poppy steal all her bones and toys until Mom catches me!
Congrats on your post of the month, too...and thanks for voting for us! Airedales RULE for the Post of the Month!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Maggie, I hope you got it back in the end! He's very cheeky, isn't he! J x

Amber-Mae said...

I think Mitch was soooo rude to steal your bone like that without asking your permission...He really needs lessons on how to behave in front of ladies, how to respect & be polite with ladies like you, hee! Oh Maggie, you almost got the bone...

Love licks,

Ooooh I was afraid a fight was gonna break out !!!

Moco said...

I am the alpha dog in this house. They wouldn't dare to take something from me. Dawson is always looking at my pig ear, but I give him the evil eye and he backs down. You need to learn the evil eye.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Louie does the same thing to me. He always has to have what I have.. Of course I am not really much better I steal his stuff all the time... Aren't siblings great??

Big Sloppy Kisses

Girasol said...

Mitch, Mitch, Mitch, I don't appreciate the interruption.
Give the bone back to Maggie.

Stanley said...

Maggsie Girl!

I LOVE hearing your bark on the vid. You're so forceful, and sneaky...

I guess I'm not too street here, but what does PIA stand for?

Goober love & smooches,

Amici said...

We hope you get another bone. Maybe even a BIGGER one. That will teach your brother how to share. :)

erin said...

I played your video and it really got Keeley's attention. He started barking and then ran around the house looking for you and Mitch.

I'm always hearing my 2-legged sisters telling one another to share but I pretend I don't know what it means either :)

Peace + Paws,


Patience-please said...

Maggie, you are such a royal Queen of All Dogs! We bow to you!
Swede William is a teensy bit on edge due to massive amounts of Lindy Loo hornymones floating all over the place and when he heard your grrrrrowl and bark he jumped a mile.

u actually got urself an Airedale weathervane !! how cool is that!!

COL. Sam ASTA-fari Joe H. Pinkerton Peabody, Esq said...

I take Katherine's bones all the time, and I do pay a dear price. She normally comes that takes it back from me, and I get a severe tongue lashing. And, our Mother just says "I told you not to take her bone, Sam." What kind of support is that, I ask you.

Our mother (who has very few friends, mind you) has a pitiful little blog and since she has no friends she has no one to tag for a cool meme. So, she asked us to tag some of our friends. If you feel like playing, please go here:

She's so pitiful. She needs to get out more.

Asta said...

umekotyan said...

Good evening m & m.
The footstep of spring slowly melts the snow.
However, in water that seems to be cold.
Warmth is missed.

Persephone and Buster said...

hey must look for your inner "bitch"... that little twit can not just steal your bone! i did like the way you made him think twice're a sweet gurlie to allow him to take the bone w/o nailing him. my mom (ms. blue) teaches us manners and won't let us have anything until we wait...sometimes a very long time.

Johann The Dog said...

Ohhhhh, scarry! :) That's what little bros are for aren't they (and sister's, like my sis Gracie) too! They won't ever learn...

Woofs, Johann

thimbles bobbins paper and ink said...

Good luck getting the little one to share. Gabe takes EVERYTHING from me and I'm supposed to be the queen of the dog house! Ha...little brothers can be such a pain in the bohiney!

Lenny said...

Very sneaky, Maggie - Mitch looks oblivious!

Your friend, Lenny

Cassidy said...

Me thinks me and Mitch went to the same training class becuase me steals Harry's chews all the time! He be too nice to tell me off, silly boy.

Peanut said...

That witch stuff doesn't bring real witches does it? That would be bad. Little brothers never learn to share.

Maya and Kena said...

Hee hee!! It's the same way with us (Kena doesn't know how to share!)!! Kena is always stealing MY bones and then when I get near her to politely ask her to give it back, she growls at me!!
Wags and licks,
