Well Daisy has raised the mischief stakes. Again.
She has officially declared Bone Warfare.
Her new rule of mischief: If you’re small and at a disadvantage, strike first or retaliate with a well-placed trap. It’s always good for a laugh.
A while ago, when she did something naughtily mischievous, DD tattled on her. Daisy stood there listening with her ears down, eyes all wide and pleading, while DD told me about her naughtiness.
We didn’t realize that Daisy had disappeared by the time we finished talking about it – she can be quite stealthy when she wants to – but when DD was leaving the room, I suddenly heard her (DD) cry out in pain.
Daisy had placed her hard Nylabone with the sharp, spiky bits (this thing is like a rock cactus) right in the middle of the doorway on a small threshold rug. The rug has a floral pattern and it was after dark, so the bone wasn’t obvious.
“Daisy put that bone there on purpose, I just know it – it’s the Bone of Truth!” DD accused. “She heard me telling you what she did, and now she paid me back for it!”
I laughed at the time, but I think Daisy got a real kick out of DD’s reaction because ever since then, she quietly sets her little bone trap just like you see in the photo above. And she always comes running to see the reaction when someone without shoes on steps on those sharp bits or when someone with shoes on almost fractures an ankle when they hit it on the edge.
The victim’s cry, “That darn bone again!” brings Daisy happily in with a smile on that little face, innocent tail wagging.
In this game of bone warfare, vigilance is key.
So we sound the alarm when one of us sees a trap set for us. Daisy has, of course, caught on to this. And she upped the stakes.
Take a look at the camouflaged trap she set yesterday in DD’s doorway (she’s really gunning for DD!):
The more innocent you act, Miss Daisy, the more we know you’re up to something….. 😉
