Mum's "Brilliant" Idea

I just loves my mum.
Well I did...I mean I do but...nevers mind, ya'lls just gonna has to keep readin'.

See Mum sometimes gets what hers calls "Brilliant" ideas but I beg to differ.

Likes da time I furst moved in heres her said...
"Hey Puddles, I have a BRILLIANT idea, why don't you start sleeping in this nice comfy box with a wire door?"
It was a freakin' crate.

Or da time her said... 
"Hey Puddles, I have BRILLIANT idea, why don't we go for a ride!
Uh, her tooks me to has my girly bits taken away.

OH gosh and then their was da time her said we was gonna run an errand...
 "Hey Puddles, I have a BRILLIANT idea, let's go run some errands."
I should has known betters...I went to da vet and had my teefers cleaned.

(no foto...sorry)

Or...or da time her said...
" Hey Puddles, I have a BRILLIANT idea, let's go outside and get some excercise."
 Yep, da time da birdie dookied on me.

Then there was time her said...
"Hey Puddles, I have a BRILLIANT idea, let's go buy some new treats."
They was LOW FAT, taste free treats...I kid you not.

(I wasn't bouts to takes a foto of no LOW FAT treats...blech!)

So when mum says her has a so-called BRILLIANT idea, I gets skeered and my hairs gets all in a twist.
So yesterday her said to me...
"Puddles, I have a BRILLIANT idea."
And I said..."No you don't."

 Then I put my paws in my ears and I was goin'...LALALALALALALA.

But then I was forced to lets her explain dis "BRILLIANT" idea cuz her was still blabbin' 10 minutes later.

See, we seened dis post withs Corbin's new couch up by da window,
and mum thoughts "Hey, let's move the couch like Corbin had his!"

SPLENDID idea I said to move it and I'll watch.

Her moved da couch...
Ooooooo dis be nice...I can say bad stuffs talks to da Stoopid's from heres.
"HEEEEEEY...bleepity bleep bleep!"
"Ya wanna piece of me?"
Ooops, I sorta turned all redneck.

I can even talks to neighborhood squirrels.
 "Hey Mr. Squirrel, ya wanna go to a bon fire?"

 "Mom, she's in my way"


Two hours later I was still perched on da couch.
 I likes dis...ALOT!

 Guess wheres I was 4 hours later?

Hehehehe...I still heres.
Yep, I was still spyin' checkin' on things cuz it do be very important to keeps da family safe ya knows.

So mum says we don't do nuttin but bark and bark and bark at everything since da couch be so close to da window nows.
 Like duh...we did dat befores it was moved it.

Now da kerazy lady insists on movin' da couch back wheres it was befores...sigh.
Da one time her gets a good idea hers don't follow through...geez!

NOTE: startin' next week I is gonna join Mango in WTF Wednesdays...hehehehe.


Dexter said...

You know, Puddles, they say that a bunch of monkeys with computers will accidentally write a book so it doesn't surprise me that your mom actually had a good idea.

You tell her to leave that couch alone! Mango says so! You need to protect your estate.


♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Brilliant post Puddles. Our Mommy has them kind of "moments" too.


Bassetmomma said...

Geez! Good things never last do they! BOL!

jen said...

You Mom is a genius Puddles! We genius's just have these kind of great ideas all the time!
We are two peas and pod, your mom and I :)

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OH PUDDLES this is a travesty fur sure. Cruel and unusual treatment. I think you and Albert should go on STRIKE until SHE comes to her senses.

My Mind's Eye said...

Puddles after years and years of brilliant ideas and lots of practice your Mum finally got it right!!
Hey are you sure you don't have some feline DNAs...I had no idea K9s enjoyed a couch perch. Just think of all the fun you'll have this summer.
Hugs and enjoy your day.
Madi your BFFF

Charlene and Storm said...

oh puddles you poor thing, how could she put the sofa back after youve had such a lovely time looking out the window. i dont think i could do that to stormy. give her your most sad little face and maybe she will feel bad and leave it alone xxxxx

HoundDogMom said...

Puddles, we can't belive you have suffered this long without the couch by the big window. That is where our couch is and we are always perched their watching the squirrels and things. We especially like waiting for Peep's to come home. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Uji, Angel Izzy, Ziggy, Angel Bean, Angel Hiro and Momma Tea said...

BOL oh Puddles yoo is nots alone, DML cant even open her curtains cos mee barks ats evryfing. Her syas mi bark is so high pitched it makes her ears bleed so her wood rava havs da curtains shutted................... hu-peeps is weird fur sure


houndstooth said...

Oh, I like that couch arrangement very much! I need our couch like that, but Mom says she's afraid Morgan would go out the window when the Village Idiots go by!


GOOSE said...

Puddles I hope she doesn't move it back, that would be ... well just wrong. Tell ya what you can come to my house I have two windows in the living room and guess what???? There is a couch under each window!!! You could even bring Albert. You can bark all ya want at the deer, raccoon, skunks, and that weird cat. Oh and across the street there is a few goats and a chicken or two. Once in a while some horses run by, don't know where they are runnin too, but I like to bark and bark when they do.
Or, or we all (Blogville) could come to your house and all of us occupy your couch and the woman would not be able to move it. I'll bring the beer.

Millie and Walter said...

I'm sorry that your mom insists on moving your couch back. It sure looked like a fantastic watch dog post. You and Remington have similar posts today. Did you see the picture of Rem on his couch? I think he needs a bigger couch.


Lovable Lily said...

At first I was sad, then I got real happy, then I was sad again. It was a brilliant idea with the couch. You need to tell her to LEAVE IT ALONE! If you need back-up just let us know and we'll be there in a flash!

Lily Belle

Amber DaWeenie said...

{sigh} {anudder sigh} And me bets da Mum now says it be anudder BRILLIANT idea to move da couch a second time so ya'll can't see out da window at all. Yeah....BRILLIANT fur who???

Matilda the Boxer said...

I love perching on the back of my couch. If it was by a window, it would be completely perfect. You should bark at your mom until she puts it back. That's how I get my way -- bark bark bark bark bark until Mom is about to go insane(r). Heh heh heh.

Pippen said...

BOL... we're pretty sure the kitteh was meowing... 'I'm coming to get you Puddles...'

We could be wrong though.

Sam and Pippen

rottrover said...

Our couch is in front of the window. We can guard AND snooze -- but SHE makes us go outside if we bark like lunatics... Nice fotos today of you and one of the blobs...

-Bart and Ruby

Jans Funny Farm said...

Noooo, she actually gave you a couch perch and then took it back? We'd be upset but at least you won't get too excited yelling obsenit ... uh, barking and fall off the couch.

Unknown said...

Geez for once your Mom got it right, then became an indian giver! Just get over here to my party! I got a couch in front of windows for you to hang out on!
Lovies, Miss Mindy

Oreo said...

Oh, I have a couch by the window Puddles and mine complains bout me barking too. I thought that it was our job of protecting the fam but yet they complain. BUmmer bout getting the couch moved. Mine has to stay, know why? There is no place to move it, BOL


Oreo said...

oh yah, just tell her to leave the couch there, that you have way to much fun barking smack!!


Remington said...

Oh my! You MUST have the couch by the window! How else can you keep an eye on your neighbors....

Unknown said...

Puddles have you turned into a kitteh?!
I thought only kittehs perched up on couches... We would be in serious trouble if we stood on the back of the couches here...we would do some serious damage!

Keep the estate she might even tie you to the porch out front :)

KB said...

You've always had a touch of redneck, Puddles :) After all, your fur is sort of red.

I loved your mom's first idea but it must have been cutting into your beauty sleep, looking out the window and barking all day. Was it? Maybe not, you still look beautiful.

Maybe you and your sibs can move the couch back to the window when your mom's gone...

Brian said...

Well I think the couch is purrfect right by the window!

Astro & Mitzie said...

Puddles,I think you got the best seat in the house. You can see everything a report it to your mom.
Hope she keeps it three for you.

K9 Katastrophie said...

BOL!! Poor Puddles. But at least you had fun for a little while!


Asta said...

the onliest time it WAS ackshully a Bwilliant idea and she wants to go and wooin it????
Hoomans awe fuwwevew a mystewy to me
I agwee wif Mango LEAVE THE COUCH WHEWE IT IS!!!!!!
sheeesh WTF
(now even i'm sounding like a wedneck hehehehe)
smoochie kisses

Corbin said...

Maybe if you keeps sittin' there, she won't be able to move it with you on it. Every doggie should have a couch by the window!
ps. you tell her... that in a few days the barkin' will become less because you will get used to the thingies that are makin' you bark... BOL! Then when a few days come, just convince her you just need a few more days... then she'll just forget to move the couch.

Corbin said...

Hey, is it your birthday yet? I'm waiting...

Anonymous said...

Oh no she's movin it back?!!! How's she gonna know what's goin on in the world without you snoopin it out? ;)

Hmmm...think I might need to unplug the speakers for next Wednesday's WTF edition. Mango's already has Mom runnin after me with a bar of soap for all the new words I learn there ;)

Waggin at ya,

Corbin said...

Do you have, like... a 3/4 birthday? Ya know, like my mom has a half birthday on April 6th. It'll mean she's offically in her LATE 20s because she'll be 27.5, which is the cut off for "Mid" 20s. So... maybe you'll be celebrating your 3/4?

Anonymous said...

Dang it Puddles, I wondered who was doing all that yapping yesterday when I was trying to take a nap. Knock it off already.

The Websters said...

We WILL occupy that sofa if needed. You let me know.

What did the squirrel say about the bonfire? We think it's a great idea.

Puddles- At least your mom “thinkz” she haz brilliant ideaz – our mom duzn’t even hardly go there, AT ALL! Whether she thinkz they r or not really- it’s like the lite iz on butt no one home kinda deal an’her hair ain’t even blonde. BUTT guess that iz a good thing – we Beaglebratz don’t haf tu bear the brunt of her brilliant ideaz like u du with your mom.

Molly the Airedale said...

What a brilliant spot for your couch, Puddles. You need to somehow talk your mom out of movin' it back!

Love ya lots,

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Well, at least you had fun for awhile!

Cole said...

Oh, I think that is a brilliant idea! Tell hers not to move it away from the window again.

With a sectional couch that fits against the windows, I always have Meadow and Beckett on neighborhood watch.

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Move the couch BACK?!? Is she CRAZY? Being a little longer in the leggie department than you, Abby and I are able to see out the windows and bark at things without sitting on the couch (although the House With Wheels has a couch right by the big window, and lemme tell ya - Doggie TeeVee!!!). But being a little less endowed in the leggie department, I think you should DEMAND that the couch stay there - I think the ADA actually has a clause about doggies with short leggies being provided with couches to better protect their families. I'm positive!

Yep, that Mum of yours should join MENSA! She's a genius...brilliant!

Our loveseat is in front of our window and our doggies just love it! Of course, Riley gets into fits of barking, but oh well. Dogs bark. It's what they're supposed to do...right??

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Riley can't wait to crack open a beer with you!

Elyse and Riley

Bobbie said...

HAHAHAHA! You're a trip Puddles!

BTW - Gracie says 'if the karazy lady moves that couch away from that window- you should poop on the floor'

Hey, I didn't say that... Gracie did. She says you need the proper 'look out fort' to be able to watch the house and protect your people.

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

We sure do think it was a brilliant idea, Puddles, but we are still trying to get past the fact that your couch is so WHITE!!! How does that happen? BOL - you should see our paws this week - it has been raining all week and ooh la la - mud heaven.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

One brilliant idea outta six isn't too bad. Hey, there are three of you, make her put the couch back by the window!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Isn't there a law or something about Low Cal Tasteless treats? There should be.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

After my late day nap I was thinkin about your Mum & here... NOT BRIGHT ideas.. and I have decided that she must be one of those New.. energy efficient... Dim Squirrely Swirley bulbs. It is a terrible burden you must bear my furend..

A MilShelb Mom said...

That stinks that she moved it back! You clearly enjoyed it. We have a pillow in front of our window that we sit on and watch and bark and bark and bark. We love it! BUTT, when we bark too much Mom and Dad close the blinds and tell us to hush. haha!
~Milly and Shelby

pibble said...

Ya see, Puddles, if you gave it a break even for a few minutes, your mum probably would have left the sofa where you wanted it. But no. You had to keep your nose pressed to the window the whoooooole day. Oh, well. Easy come, easy go...

♥ Sallie said...

Poor, Puddles!

Alien is making a bionic arm for Pip. Maybe he can make you some bionic legs so you can look out the window whenever you want? I'll go ask him.

If her keeps moving da sofa around, how is Albert gonna figure out where he is supposed to push you under it?

The Daily Pip said...

Couch next to the window that is a most BRILLIANT idea!

Your pal, Pip

P.S.: I found us a good lawyer. That photograph proves nothing. Deny EVERYTHING!

The Daily Pip said...

Oh, and pass me the Cheetos ...I have the munchies!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Hi Puddles
I think the couch in the window was the bestest idea ever, and I think your mom needs to leave it there.
I have a couch in the window too, and I bark to keep the birds and cats and wolves away.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Well, all good things come to an end. It was nice while it lasted. We've got a few more platitudes, if they'll make you feel any better. Goose has a good idea: a somewhat revised 'occupy your couch' movement in support of keeping your couch next to the window.

BTW, how is Whitney?

Jed & Abby

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles how heavy is that couch?? Any chance you pups could all get together and move and then tell Mom"I had a brilliant idea and please leave it alone". I am thinking just to be safe, maybe you could get hold of some glue and glue those legs down there, problem solved. Good luck and push with your knees bent so you don't hurt your back. My Mom got a set of those couch mover thingys from tv ads, I will send them ASAP.

What Remains Now said...

Do you think you could get Sarge to write her a ticket so she can't move it?

Unknown said...

I was contemplating your issue during da nighttime, had a Brilliant idea fur you Ready fur it? Here goes....
Tell your mom that the lighting by the window makes da fotos her took look EXTRA good! (they do!). And moving da Sofa would make her miss some great foto ops. Crazy Camera Lady should fall fur that!

Remington said...

Has your mommy moved the couch back yet? I am big and strong....give me a call and I will come and do it while she is out shopping!

Puddles, you are a foul mouthed little dog with a disrespectful sense of humour - we adore you!!
We think humans should keep their brilliant ideas to themselves.

Declan said...

Well that was a brilliant idea your Mom had Puddles... Deccy had us do the exact same thing, only our sofa is still there! Perhaps she may move it back if we get all of your pals in Blogville to dedicate a blog post in support of our favourite little red headed greyhound! ;-)

Backcountry Brodie said...

If'n mom opens the blinds in her bedroom, I can lay on her bed and look rite out the window and see all the goings ons on our BLOCK! But she nefur puts the blinds up any more, sumpin about too much woofing. Wassup with them?
