Max - I'm feeling much much better - thanks to everyone for your kind messages.
JD - We thought it was about time we entered Scottie's 'naughty pup' competition!
Max - Of course, we always see our behaviour as being helpful or simply being willing to muck in, but humans are weird in how they define things sometimes....sigh!
JD - But apparently we've been quite good puppies so far!
Max - Our human says it's something to do with us being just a bit too short to reach a lot of things and being just a bit too young to have got up to too much just yet!
JD - The first thing we ever did to worry our humans was escape on our third day home! Unfortunately there is no footage of this daring deed of ours so we will have to simply recount it to you....
Max - Our garden is divided into two parts. The smaller bit we're allowed into any time, the larger, grassy part is for supervised romps only.
JD - But we love the grassy part and always try to sneak into it whenever possible. In the smaller part of our garden we have a small summer house ....
Our humans live at number 22 so thought it was hilariously funny to mark our dwelling as '22.5' - humph!
Max - ....which is actually made of fibreglass so it's very light. Well, we figured out that if we shifted it to the fence that separates these two garden sections we would be able to climb onto the roof and leap over!
JD - So between us we shifted it and made good our escape! We were quick - our female human saw us from the kitchen window and couldn't believe how cheeky we were being - or how fast!
Max - By the time she had got outside we were gone. Really gone! We'd found a tiny hole in the fence that our humans didn't even know was there and were off! We met the neighbours - and we now go for regular walks with them and their doggie as a rather lovely consequence, he he he!
JD - We've never tried that particular stunt again though. To be honest with you we scared ourselves a bit when we did that as it took our humans a little while to figure out just WHERE we had escaped to (there are 4 gardens backing off our garden) so there we were, sitting in a strangers house (nice though these strangers were!) wondering if we'd ever see our new humans again. We had just decided that we liked our new humans by this point too and were going to let them know that we were prepared to stay with them, so when all this happened we were understandably very worried!
Max - There's only been one naughty event where we were caught 'red-pawed' and that was when we helped our humans with the recycling.
JD - They'd collected a lot of old newspapers ready to be recycled and had produced a nice, neat stack in the corner of the lounge ready to take outside.
Max - And then someone knocked at our front door - by the time our female human came back - about 2 minutes later - this is what she saw....
JD - ....well, we WERE only very small pups at the time! And paper is just so satisfying to chew - the noises it makes, the texture of the chewed mush - oooh, it's just sooooo good!
Max - Oooh - oooh! I've got another one! I escaped from the kitchen only last week. My humans think I must have climbed on JD's back to leap over the barrier they put across the kitchen entrance. When they got back home after a couple of hours out JD was still in the kitchen getting very frantic on his own and I was in the lounge sampling how tasty our posh new doggie gates were.....
Max - Mmmmmm - they were super-yummy!
JD - Well, that's our entry. We're looking forward to reading all the other entries....
Max - ....and picking up some great naughty tips along the way - he he he!
