Blame It On Mitch

Guess what happened?
I poo'd in the kitchen Friday night after everyone went to bed! I left a real goody right in front of the back door and I went all over the kitchen rug and it wasn't a pretty sight! Mom wasn't too happy when she got up the next morning!

Later on morning walkies, mom thought about how this possibly could have happened and then it dawned on her - it wasn't my fault - it was clearly Mitch's fault!
When mom takes me out to poo after dindin, lots of times Mitch comes along with us. He almost never has to poo but he always pees and then because he hates being bored waiting for me to decide where the best spot is for me to go, he creates distractions to entertain himself!

A motorcycle went by just as I was about to assume the position and Mitch hates motorcycles so he took the opportunity at that moment to lunge forward and try to let the motorcyclist know that it was totally unacceptable to be riding on OUR street in front of OUR house! And naturally I had to forget about what was most important at that moment and back Mitch up, right?
I never got back on track so it's clearly Mitch's fault that I poo'd in the kitchen! Mom has let me off the hook completely and she even hugged and kissed me and apologized to me!
Wow - who would have thought!

I was thinking that if any of you ever need your moms to forgive and forget for any trouble that you might have gotten yourself into, I can mail Mitch to your house and he can take the blame for whatever you've done wrong and all will be forgiven and you'll be GOLD!
Does this sound like a plan?I think this box looks like the perfect fit for you, Mitch!
Get your hiney in there! We want to make sure that you have at least a little bit of breathing room!
The box even says FRAGILE on it, so you're all set! In you go!Is this a great idea, or what?
I'm sitting by the phone! My phone number is area code (BLA)-ME M-ITCH!
I hope to hear from someone soon!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Very smart of you to blame everything on your younger brother, Maggie. But you won't have to ship Mitch here to NC. I have Ambrose to blame things on - everything is his fault anyway.

Your friend,

ScrapsofMe said...

Will that be AIRE-mail? teeehehheee. Anyways, it was most nice of you to contain the mess to one spot. Not like Puffers when he gets a tummy ache. I hafta point out spots SHE misses. It's good to know I am not the only distractable female around. Sometimes I hafta go soooo bad, but as soon as I get out things like squirrels and cars and wind and sun distract me, and I forget why I came out....only to hafta go out again as soon as I come back inside. Anyways, back to the BLAME MITCH campaign, will that work for a slighty chewed pair of shoes too? A new pair came into the house last week and in my process of investigation, I....ummm...slightly totally removed the decoration from one and there are nibble marks on the other. SHE whipped out her Jr. Forensic Science kit and matched the toofer marks to ME of all things. I am still looking for a good defense and BLAME MITCH sounds good to me!
sniffies all around,

Oh. Oh. I've gotta remember this... where's my iPhone. Entering this into the Contacts: (BLA)-ME M-ITCH. Got it. Thanks, Maggie. This is REALLY going to come in handy.
Play bows,

I think this is a GREAT idea. I have your phone number filed under poo.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie!
Of course it was not your fault!
I don't have that poo problem but sure I can find something to blame Mitch on and now I know he will be here to take the responsability! Great idea!
Happy sunday!
Kisses and hugs

Oh, Maggie, you made me laugh. Let me tell you a secret - but Pssst! Last Friday I peed right outside the bedroom door... I wonder if there's any way I could blame the stain on Josh?


Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

OMD, I could have used him a couple weeks ago when I peemailed my homie in the kitchen! (I figured since she spends so much time on the computer that that was the best way to contact her, you know?)

Mitch is the poorpetrator!

doyle and mollie said...

oh man when nature calls it really calls!! thanks for the offer of a mitch decoy he might come in handy fur sure!!!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

Send him over - we can always use another dog to put the blame on.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Martha said...

Hi Maggie, we completely understand that it was not your fault.
In fact we reckon we could use Mitch over here in Scotland.
There has been some dog pee'ing in our house because she is hearing fireworks already.
Now we all know it is Martha but if Mitch could come over that would let her off the hook!
Thank you so much for the offer.
The only thing is we currently have a postal strike in the UK so there may be a delay.
Please ensure Mitch has some food and water in the box - just in case!
love you lots

Piappies World said...

Hi there Maggie,

Got your number in our secret mobile phone just in case, Mocha wakes up and realizes that she normally takes all the blame when ever the lil piappies get into trouble especially when it comes to laundry that gets ripped apart. Waaaaah

- Frappie, Mocha & the Piappies

Sue said...

Sounds like a great idea to us, but we don't need your services.. we have Fudge. He's always at fault for everything.

Gus said...

Ring ring...Miss Maggie...this is Teka Toy....could you send Mitchie here so Gussie can blame the messes on someone besides me?

thank you
Teka Toy

Sierra Rose said...

Oh what a scene! Mitch! You may have yourself a big postal adventure coming up. Maggie, don't know what to say, but good luck with this. Great phone number! Keep us posted on where Mitch is shipping to next....might have a good little business startup on your hands...very creative!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Nelly said...

Hoowl, I can't blame anything on Finni, he won't even crouch in the garden. Mum has to take him for walkies straight away after her breakfast (which we share!) otherwise he barks and barks ... and barks ...
That looks like a fine box Maggie, would be much more fun shredding it ...
Nelly xx

Josie said...

Hi Maggie! That's a great post! I love to blame stuff on my brother and sister who are both cats!!!!! Have a great day! Josie

Asta said...

A bwilliant plan, but I think you would miss youw mitch too much to keep sending him all ovew.
Mommi doesn't know how youw Mommi can even see if you ow Mitch do youw poops at night in the dawk
it ceawly wasn't youw fault
smoochie kisses

Astrid Keel said...

bwa haha!!! What will YOU do, Maggie, when Mitch is gone?! Oh wait, I'm not going to wait for your answer cause I'm going to get in line to borrow Mitch... I need all the help I can get!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Well. We like the idea of transport by AireMail. But we'd want BOTH of you to come. To play. We can send you our address if you'd like it! (We place any blame that need be on the moon.)

Hopefully we'll see you soon,
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Martine said...

Poor little mitchey!!!! Blamed for everything!

Persephone and Buster said...

Love the aire-box. With proper postage, it'll get you far away from those crazed motorcyclists! Just ship yourself, post-paid, to say, Papeete--or Christmas Island.

Now, Kerry Blues don't have the patience of you 'dales. When we gotta go, we just bark until the whole household awakes, even if it's four a.m.!

Happy day after Halloween,

Buster, Sephie & Bailey

Cowspotdog said...

Poor maggie - I bet you crossed your legs as long as you could - and yes it was Mitch's fault, distracting you that way. Some things just take time!!!

Agatha and Archie said...

BRILLIANT plan!! I certainly will call you.Hold on a minute..ARCHIE what is the number you are dialing right now??? Well it looks like he will as well!! Love A+A

Dexter said...

I think Mitch is going to be doing a lot of traveling. Hehehe. Thank goodness mom understood that it wasn't your fault.

The nerve of Mitch disrupting your most important business. Humph.


Duffy said...

I could clearly use Mitch's help for some things. Perhaps he would be availble when I chew up another sofa pillow. I think you'd really miss him, though, if he was traipsing all over the world.

Puggle Preston said...

ha! Maggie, if you rent Mitch out, you can make millions of bucks! A lot of doggies are in need for his services!
oh I don't like to be distracted when doing my business either!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

Will it really be okay to blame Mitch? Will my mom go for that?
I don' think its a good idea at all to ship your brother anywhere. Then who will you blame?
I sometimes blame stuff on the cats!

Auntie LuLu said...

Zach will take him, but he'd had to stay here full time. Zach's not getting distracted, he'd getting old.

Looking forward to a LARGE package that may be moving. PSSS..mitch, we have plenty of apples for you.

Zach's mom

BRUTUS said...

How convenient that Mitch and you are both the same size!! I try to blame my occasional behind -the-couch poos on Mason, but the fact that his are twice the size blows a hole in my story. Think we need another Frenchie....

Brutus the Frenchie

Teddy Bear said...

Oh Maggie, I hope you're feeling better. Blame it on Mitch, yes! He is so brave to go into that box.

Are you sure you didn't accidently ate one of those tasty looking brown colored human treats from Howl-o-ween?

Blaming little brothers always work!


animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hay Maggie,
You can send Mitch right over. Bambi doesn't have anybody to blame anything on. Oh thats right she has never done poop in the house, ever!! She has never do peppy either, And she is 12 years old. Bambi says she would like to have Maggie to come over, Both girls and both almost the same age.
Love ya, Bambi and Fern

Joe Stains said...

omdog you made a STAIN?!?! I am so proud of you. There is nobody to blame here, you were just expressing yourself.

Noah the Airedale said...

One Mitch please!!!

Only kidding. We agree with Faya, you'd miss your baby brother too much.
Mags, that happens here on the odd occasion. Totally my sissies fault, usually Willow.

Princess Patches said...

How soon do you think Mitch could get here? I, Patches could have used him yesterday when I chewed up another tomato on Mom's bed! This is the second time I did that! The first time, I did it all over the sheets, but this time, I only got the bedspread!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

Wow Maggie, How cool that Mitch got the blame for that one hehehe! Very clever. Can he take the blame for chomping up things that my Mum makes too?
~lickies, Ludo

Patience-please said...

There are enough of us that the Servant never knows who did what!! Hee hee hee hee we love it! She is kept in a perpetual state of confusion!

Instead of mailing Mitch, you just need to get 6 more mitches! Ha!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Ah well, Maggie, those things happen to all of us. And your mom is so nice AND smart not to blame you. But we think you would be really sad if you mailed Mitch off - think how much you would miss him. Well, we think you would.

Play bows, the OP Pack

Fred said...

I want a Mitch to blame stuffs on! Meanwhile, you both looked very nice in your Halloween bandannas.

Peanut said...

Lucky for me I have Peanut to blame everything on.


Fenway said...

Just think of that as a little pressie for you humans! And it's a reminder to them that sometimes, we need to take our time with nature's calling, if you know what I mean!

Your pal,

PS: I admit...I've done that, too!!!

Thor and Jack said...

Maggie, you´re so smart putting all the blame on Mitch. You´ll be so sad without him, think about it!

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Please send him to KY. I need someone to blame for the things I do....I will send you Bobo in exchange for Mitch. Is it a deal?

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo

Mack said...

I blame Paris all the time for my "accidents"!

Kelly said...

Miss Maggie! Miss Maggie!
I need Mitch, fast! I pee peed in the living room this morning! I tried to tell momma there was a leak in the roof and that's why the carpet was wet... but she is not buying it. Send Mitch, quick!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You were framed... It had to be Mitches fault..
Another nice hiney shot.. hehe

Jake of Florida said...

I was thinking it would be cool to have a Mitch to blame -- but then I realized that I have my own get out of jail free card sitting right in front of me -- my own too cute for words brother, Just Harry. He's provided cover many many times.

So thanks for the offer -- but I think you should keep your own little guy around for the next time!!!

Jake of Florida

i said...

Sure you don't mind, Maggie? I sure could use some help from Mitch hehehe...

Stardust said...

Oh Maggie, you got me laughing! And Mitch is swallowing all that? Oh dear...

Mom's so sweeeeet... And surely you can forgive Mitch too? Now make up fellas. =D

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Maggie and Mitch,
Maggie you are getting up there and things just some time happen to us older people and dogs. All kinds of things that never happened when we were younger.
How can you keep up with 55 comments??? JOB
Love ya lots, Bambi and Fern

The Black and Tans. said...

As much as we would love Mitch to come and visit us we certainly would feel mean trying to blame him for something............

Fortunately as there are three of us by the time we all have finished blaming each other the hoomans have forgotten what the dastardly deed was in the first place.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

snoopydogknits said...

I'm keeping your number on my speed dial!

tula monstah said...

Yes! someone to blame this on- PERFECT! Mitch I have a feeling you'll probably be taking aLOT of trips...

toodles, tula

Bae Bae said...

I like to borrow Mitch too please. hee hee

Oskar said...

Ooh, I could use an excuse every once in a while since I'm an only dog!

living naturally with pets said...

Rosie would like Mitch shipped at once. Since the temps have turned colder, and Rosie with her shy bladder when it comes to inclement weather, there is an occassional present left down in the basement, so she says Mitch would be a welcome scapegoat for her. But she never gets in trouble anyway, since Mom feels bad that no one trained her as a puppy and she was abused in her previous home so I guess the house rules only apply to me. Come on over Mitch.

Hollie and Janie said...

you are such a clever girl, maggie! i've got you on speed dial! there have been one or maybe two occasions where having mitch around would have been handy! (ie.cell phone eating, garbage eating, sunglasses eating... i could go on!)

Inky and Molly said...

That number doesn't seem to work!
Good on ya Mitch, for taking the blame here. A real gentleman.
As to you and the poo Maggie, well, there are a lot worse things in the world, aren't there....
We love the photo of Mitch in the box, fuzz butt out! Nice fuzz butt that!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Maggie,
Thanks for the offer but we have Jack. Everything IS Jack's fault. And as far as your accident in the kitchen is concerned was it really Mitch's fault, or was someone who was with you supposed to make certain that you did your business outside but that "person" also got distracted and did not insure that all expected chores had been completed? Maybe that's why your mom was so forgiving and anxious to let Mitch take the fall. We bet he didn't get yelled at either.
