guess who's on the naughty step AGAIN...

Hi everyone...it's your favourite gorgeous bundle of golden deliciousness popping on to say Hi...
but "gorgeous" is not the word my old Mum would have used to describe me after yesterday's lunchtime forest walk...
it started off as normal...me up front ambling along wagging my tail with my super duper sense of smell set to high alert as usual...
with my old Mum bringing up the rear and keeping an eye out for a lunchtime snack...
half an hour in...all is well...nothing out of the ordinary in this peaceful part of the world...
I did get a "good humoured" ticking off for standing in this muddy hollow but hey that's nothing new...it's the normal day to day "in one ear and out the other" stuff...little did I know it was all about to kick off big time when I caught a whiff of something interesting...something that some of us find irresistible...
a HUGE PILE OF DEER POO...and yes I couldn't resist having a good old roll in the "doggy world" equivalent of Chanel but crikey nothing prepared me for the  "all hell let loose" rollicking that followed...
so can anyone tell me why I decided in a "don't know what came over me" moment of utter "in for a penny...in for a pound" madness...to return to the scene of the crime and do it again...
no way was the "sorry Mum" cute face going to cut the mustard this time...you just know you're in big big trouble...that you've definitely lit the fuse when you hear the schoolmistress voice..."GET IN THE CAR"
(that was a bit of a relief...I thought I might be left to walk home alone)...
a bit of a wind tunnel journey home with all the windows open...mind you it did help to drown out the unladylike language coming from the front and I knew what was coming...another rollocking from Dad...the indignity of being smothered in tomato sauce to get rid of the smell...then lathered in shampoo and nearly drowned by the garden hose.
OOPS...OOPS...OOPS...I've well and truly blotted my copybook this time...I'm right up at the top of the "in the bad books" list and how long I'll be stuck on the naughty step is anybody's guess. Have I learned my lesson...now that's the million dollar question isn't it...the problem is I've inherited that male selective hearing gene from my Dad and am blessed with the same atrocious memory as my old Mum...so I would have to come down on the side of...NOT A CHANCE.
Big Hugs and Snuggles from this naughty Furry Boy

Thanks for making me smile...I think fox poo which our dog Alfie has a penchant for, must come a pretty close 2nd in the pong stakes! Ruth x

Awww Buddy, will you never learn. You crossed the line big time and I hope you are not left for too long on the naughty step. Hugs and Cuddles Rita xxxx

Oh, he is pushing his luck!! Do you buy tomato sauce by the case??

Glennis said...

OMG!!! tomato sauce?

misteejay said...

Oh Buddy, whatever next.
This did make me chuckle but I can understand why your Mum was so cross - try to be good otherwise I think you will be visiting the naughty step quite a bit.

Kath you have made me laugh this morning. Harris did the same thing last Saturday. Thankfully it was while out with hubby and even better as I was on the Mega Bus on my way to Glasgow to meet the lovely Rita ( RMG Creations). So didn't have to help clean him up, did get the phone call " where's the SHAMPOO". That's the thing about this time of year - doggy heaven all over the woods. Enjoy the Retreat weekend. Hazel xx

Jane said...

Oh "deer"Buddy I hope you are allowed off the naughty step soon....what a whiff that must have been in the car ;0) x

Kathyk said...

OH MY! But how can you leave a face like that on the naughty step for long!

Happy (and fragrant) Friday!

We know a cocker spaniel who has the tomato sauce treatment for fox poo and badger "slime" - both pretty horrid too!

Sammy said...

Oh Buddy, why is it the most fun things aren't allowed?
But next time before you leap, spare a thought - not for the trouble you'll get into - but your poor mum who will have to clean up after you!

Thanks for the smiles x

Redanne said...

Oh Buddy, you have been a very naughty boy to do it again - goodness, it must be alluring! I should'nt say it but it did make me smile though..... Big hugs, Anne xx

Crafting Queen said...

Maxcine said...

Ribbon Girl said...

Good job I'd already eaten my breakfast otherwise I might have choked with laughter - great pictures by the way - Buddy I hope you will soon be off the naughty step and snuggling with Mum!!

darcydaydream said...

ROFL.....I think you would be great friends with my beagle Chester who finds ever piece of poo going. He could also find you nice decomposing animals to snack on as you as you enjoy your walks with mummy!!...xx

Pamela said...

No photo of you covered in ketchup? Would have loved to have seen that one! Keep up the good work Buddy - you're a cure for the rat race blues!

Jan Moss said...

Hi Kath. This made me laugh!! Hey Buddy, don't fret!! I bet all will be good today. Have a great one. Hug for Mum and a Cuddle for you. Jan. xx

Marianne said...

Oh Buddy, you really should behave better ... big smile. We have a dog (found as a puppy under our hedge 11 months ago; looks like a long-haired dachshund with the face of a german shephard) who is trying to snuggle on our couch and then I have to reprimand him, since DH is unable to keep a straight face.

Shoshi said...

Awwww... that is such an adorable story! What a norty dog. Love the comments at the end about selective hearing and atrocious memory lol! As for the picture at the beginning, well, butter wouldn't melt!!

Some lessons will never be learnt, I fear. Got to love 'em, though!

Aw, poor Buddy! Before I moved down to Cornwall I used to walk my 'little princess' MistyBlueVelvet, around the golf course (kindly closed by the council and 'given' to the town as a park. She always turned her nose up at the deer pooh, heading instead to the fox offerings! I wonder if tomato sauce kills that smell too? She was dragged right into the shower, my flat not having a bath, and vanished under a thick lather of fairy liquid (I read somewhere that it's very good for keeping fleas away). She always brushes up a treat. Since moving down country, although there's a small field right by my back garden and the cattle market just across the road, I'm happy to say she's found NOTHING disgusting to roll in. I still use fairy though and she still loves to escape into the garden whilst still damp so that her feet need more treatment lol. My Buddy, comes round the field with us on our walk and we always get strange looks from the people in cars going past to see the crazy lady taking her dog and cat for a walk! My Buddy is almost as tall as my cat so they have to look twice to make sure he's not a strange breed of dog lol. x

Thelma said...

My Lakeland Terrier used to dive head first into cow pats. I took home the green headed monster so many times. Buddy, I hope you're off the naughty step!

Lee said...

Awww look at that face soooo adorable lol.We have to use the ol tomato ketchup trick too,but it works thank goodness.You do have some lovely walks don't you Buddy love the scenery lucky boy.Cuddles xx

Rebecca Bradshaw said...

Haha this really made me laugh (sorry to your mum who I'm sure was not laughing!). You do get up to some fun adventures!
Rebecca.

Sally A said...

Oh Buddy don't be sad. A big WOOF from Anni B.

Anni's drug of choice is mud, as much and as deep as possible - especially if she can get her snout in it and even eat it at times, perhaps try that next time...............
