In the Doghouse

Here are the many reasons why I land my beagle butt in the doghouse - defined as "being out of favour, and in trouble with a person or people, (i.e. my humans), because of an offence".

1) Killing my humans' precious red palm (Notice how thick the trunk is!)

2) Opening the bag of soil that was meant for re-potting my humans' plants(I was only trying to help spread it out...)

3) Having a bath in the mud during a thunderstorm whilst my humans are out (I don't understand why I need a second bath after that!)

4) Biting my humans' shoe cabinet and destroying their bright red special "Chinese New Year" tissue box cover (It's their fault for leaving a lonely beagle at home when they go out)

And now for the finale:

5) Scratching my humans' lovely wooden gate with my many high jump attempts (They don't buy the excuse that I am trying out for the Olympics)

Well, here's proof...First, the run...

Then the jump!

Now I ask you - should I really be sent to the doghouse for any or all of the above? Tell me what you think.

Hi Kess
We don't think you should be in the 'doghouse' at all!
It is clear to us that you are only trying to be helpful.
Sometimes humans just dont understand ...............
We are with you.

You are quite a landscaper. I get in trouble too when I try to help out with the gardening.

There is a doggie like you visiting next door to me. He sure sings when he sees me in the yard.

Hi Kess! I've been in the doghouse for those things, too - but now I can blame it on Zeke!

Happy Easter!

See ya!

You appear pretty normal to us, Kess! No way should you be in the doghouse!

Love ya lots,

Does your dog house have cable TV? We don't know why your Mum would be upset with you doing a little palm reading. After all how can you tell the future without palm reading?

Kess, you can jump really high!! You could jump over our gate, which is meant to be dog-jump-proof!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

What!!! You're in the doghouse for that? That's nothing!

I understand the tree, you were just trying to do some trimming!

As for the soil, those bags are difficult to open, and you were just trying to help!

Now, the mud bath...those are pertinent for maintaining a well moisturized coat.

That jump was awesome! I am jealous of your awesome leaping abilities!

Nah...why would you be sent to the doghouse when you are clearly just being a dog? *wink* Humans are quite silly sometimes...

Hope you had a great day!

Poor you Kess...hope you're out of the doghouse now. Well, I've learned that humans don't appreciate our help, especially the landscaping part.

BOL! I love your high jump!

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Oh should definitely be sent to the Dog house for those offences....with a fleecy blanket and a juicy bone, hehe!
Well done girl, keeping up our reputation as awesome housepets....for entertainment value if nothing else!
Sorry it's taken so long to visit you :o( We should be back to normal now, yippee!
