Monday Mischief: Daisy’s Bone Trap

on June 25, 2012

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.

The Bone Trip Trap. Yes, Daisy actually positioned the bone to stand up straight!

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.

Awaiting the next unsuspecting shoeless victim….

“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!):

Hmmm….looks like you’ve been discovered, ol’ buddy. I’ll have to fix this.

La-de-daaa…I’m just sitting here with my buddies….

What?? I’m just keeping my ol’ friends company!

The more innocent you act, Miss Daisy, the more we know you’re up to something….. 😉

  2. Atta girl Daisy! That’s a cunning and conniving dog lol

  3. KSO says:

    Daisy you are too clever! Setting traps like that, your family better watch out!

  4. Hey Daisy, Jet here.

    Oh you are a clever one… JJ leaves her meaty bones all over the house in plain sight. Mom and Rachel still trip over them… she obviously needs stealth lessons from you, mishief mega star!

  5. Such innocence, but yet so mischievous.

  6. Bassetmomma says:

    Heehee! Daisy, that is some great mischief your up to with those bones. I love the innocent look on your face! Fred and Gloria are always setting traps too! LOL!

  7. Jan says:

    Nothing that looks that innocent could ever…
    oh, nevermind.

  8. Gloria says:

    Lovies to you, Miss Mindy
    PS: I just LOVE your curls, all I gets is waves!

  9. What a brilliant little munchkin she is. I’d look at enrolling her in an undercover crimebreaking organisation.

  10. barb19 says:

    She’s not only cute, but very clever – and devious!!! 😉

  11. 2browndawgs says:

    That is too funny. Daisy is very clever. Sometimes the brown dawgs leave their hard bones around too, it had not occurred to me that they may be laying a trap…

    • raisingdaisy says:

      LOL When Daisy hears an “OUCH!” from a bone trap victim, she comes trotting in with tail wagging and what I’d call a smile on her face. She watches the person unblinkingly – makes me think this is a real form of entertainment for her!

  12. Hey Daisy,

    You’re just brilliant!! Maybe DD will think twice about dropping you in it next time? Tee Hee – I love how you take it to the next level too and use camouflage – you’re a great Mischief Master buddy!!

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    PS – My Mum’s not too keen on the ol’ bone on the floor thing either, strange that I never stand on it?

  13. Chancy and Mumsy says:

    Sweet Daisy you are a hoot!! Smart too if we must say so.No matter what you do you are still just the cutest ever! Hugs and nose kisses

  14. Novroz says:

    huahahaha I cant stop laughing.,.Daisy is so smart. The trap is just cunning.

    cute face is always dangerous 😉

  15. nalasdogdays says:

    Smart move Daisy! And by the way, you look really well groomed 🙂 (Can’t say the same about a certain someone) 🙂

  16. megtraveling says:

    But could an adorable doggie like Daisy do such a thing? She looks so innocent… 🙂

  17. magsx2 says:

    You just can’t help but laugh at some of the things our pets get up to, of course it is all a game to them, but they do keep us on our toes. 😀
    Lovely photos.

  18. Here it is already Thursday night and I’m just now getting round to reading of Daisy’s exploits! Who knows what mischief she’s planned since then. She has some very calculating ways for a small dog! You may need to buy softer chew toys if she’s going to use them as weapons! It may be the only way! 🙂 Debra

    • raisingdaisy says:

      LOL You know, Debra, we can actually see her mind working sometimes when she sits still, ears cocked, studying something for quite a while – sometimes even studying our actions very closely. And then when she acts on it, she carefully watches our reactions. We never underestimate her anymore!

  19. Flo says:

    Surely something as adorable as Daisy couldn’t be so cold and calculating…?!

  20. The Hook says:

    My daughter thinks Daisy is a cutie pie!

  21. Lol! Daisy, well-placed! Oops. Shhh, don’t tell Mom i said that! @.@ teehee. 😀 The way i see it, you just want Mom and the rest of the family to “bump” into your every now and then. It’s like you saying “hello! i’m right here and i miss you!” 😀 ❤
