Monday mischief: The Big Adventure

Hi Freidns,

Thumper here taking over since the Storteyller never writes about us anymore.  I had a great adventure this weekend. I've got to tell you about it. It was the best.

It started when I was in the yard playing with Lightning and watching for squirrels and birds.  Two little boys live next to us, and they really like to play with us.  There is a hole in the fence where our brother the baseball player broke the wood with a baseball and we watch the little boys through here.  The best thing is the little boys pet us through the hole and call us over to play!  They are better than squirrels.  I got so lucky yesterday and somebody opened one of the gates for me.  I'm not saying who...just in case you-know-who reads this.  What dog can resist an open gate AND little boys?  I couldn't. 

I stayed close home for a while.  The boys played with me and then I FINALLY got to go to the front flower bed and leave some peemail.  THere was so much new stuff to smell there, then I heard it.  A power wheels.  you know the little truck looking thing that little boys drive?  I've heard it's a toy but it looks liek a killer.  I got scared and ran.  That's when the adventure got BIG.

The little boys and their dad went and told on me.  They told my brother the baseball player.  He runs fast and he took off looking for me.  I was hiding down the street between two houses.  I'm good at hide and seek.  Then dad came after me.  And mom too - with the leash.  uh oh.  My baseball player brotehr is good at hide and seek too.  He found me...he said he saw my tail sticking out.  uh oh.  Next thing I remember he picked me up (I'm a big boy and I'm NOT used to being picked up off the ground!) and then dad got me (I was SCARED cause I knew I hadn't been a good dog and he knew it too) and mom put the leash on me.  I had to say bye to the little boys and their dad.  After that I was in time out.  Can you believe?  Time out.  mom gave lightning a treat for staying in the yard when the gate was open, but i didn't get one.  He is such a goody-two-shoes.  I'm planning my next adventure but don't tell mom.  It's a secret. 




  1. You got a time out for having fun? Gosh - the system is messed up since it wasn't like YOU left the gate open...

    I can't wait to hear about your next adventure! Try not to get caught next time!

  2. As far as I can tell it's the Big Brother's fault for making a hole in the fence in the first place! Try that one out, Thumper!

  3. That sounds like quite an adventure with a little mischief thrown in!

    the brown dawgs

  4. What an adventure, it's always so fun when THEY leave the gate open.

    The silvers and more

  5. Dear Thumper, I'm sure you gave your humans a heart attack! I would have been in the doghouse forever if I pulled a stunt like that.

    Oh! and TT would like to remind you that it's only a fun adventure for the first few hours. After that, you could get cold and hungry. Isn't she a bundle of joy?
