Tales of a Naughty Puppy

Our puppy Sam has officially reached the really, really naughty stage.  He’s finally figured out that there are just some things that he’s not allowed to do…and he doesn’t care.  Well, he does care, but only if he gets caught. 

Yesterday we found him running around with an onion. I had no idea where he got that onion, but he had decided it was his and he wasn’t letting it out of his sight.  If we came near him, he’d dash off in the other direction with his onion. I’m not sure if he thought that he had scored with an exotic new food or if he thought it was just a funny tasting ball. 

I managed to lure him over to me and traded him the onion for a Cheerio.  (Have I mentioned how brilliant he is?) Amazingly, there wasn’t a single bite mark on that onion.  I may have put it back in the pantry. 

This morning, Mimi came around the corner just in time to see Sam stand up on him hind legs and snag her breakfast that was waiting for her on the kitchen counter.  She tore after him in an effort to save her bagel.  When she managed to capture him, only half of her meal was left.  For some reason, she no longer wanted to eat that half. 

We do work with him, trying to teach him right from wrong and train him correctly.  He can sit, lay down, stay (kinda), come (when he feels like it), and stay off (if you happen to be standing there) I’m hoping this naughtiness is just some sort of stage like the Terrible Twos.

Have I mentioned that he graduated from Puppy School last week?

  1. I think I will live puppy days vicariously through you–I’m sooo not up to it. It does generate cute pics, though!

    It’s always so cute how once a puppy has something in his mouth that he shouldn’t, when you try to take it from him he thinks you guys are now playing the keep away game. haha

    that’s FUNNY! In the pic he looks like he’s licking his chops from the bagel. Our Casey got up on her hind legs and grabbed a whole leftover chicken off the counter. She got in trouble and hasn’t grabbed anything from up there since, but I’m not convinced she’s cured of the habit – I think she just hasn’t been tempted.

    No, I can’t imagine why Mimi wouldn’t want the rest of her bagel, either! How can you say that gorgeous pooch is naughty?? 🙂

    Near the bottom of his class, I imagine? LOLOL what a cute story and an adorable picture. I can’t believe he wanted an onion of all things!

    bwaaaaaaaa ha ha ha ha… a table top snatcher. I think you’re in for along life of “what happened to .. fill in the blanks.”

    LOL, I know what you’re going through. I’m going through it with 2 Saint Bernard puppies, one 4 months old and one 10 months old. I swear they tag team each other. One will distract me while the other grabs something and takes off. You can’t help but love them though.

    Just found your blog. Sam is a cutie! I can empathize with you… my 10 month old Chessie might be Sam’s long lost cousin as he has the same habits! =) I am sure Sam is very much loved…running around with onions and all!

    That’s a big puppy!
    Our dog used to do the craziest stuff but the naughtiest was chewing socks and underwear. Ick.
