Mischief Monday: The Mysterious Case of White Lightning

It's Monday.  I hate Mondays.  I like the relaxed, no-schedule feel of the weekends:  sleep in, eat all day, watch movies, chase the lizards - you know, the usual.  Mondays are just the worst.  Waking up early after a night of partying and having to head into work and deal with some co-worker accusing you of having a case of the Mondays.  (I may or may not be confusing my life with the movie Office Space.  Not sure yet.)  In order to make my Mondays a little less mundane, I like to shake things up.  That's why I become White Lightning on Mondays.  I move so fast through the house and commit run-by fruitings throughout the day (just kidding, this time I am confusing myself with Mrs. Doubtfire).  But I do like to burglarize my human brothers.  Before you call the cops, let me explain....

I love building with Legos.  I build towers and castles and many things to create!  But, since I have little paws, I am restricted to using the Lego Duplo blocks.

Don't get me wrong, the Duplo blocks are great!  Bright colors, and easy to build with.  I mean, look, I made this awesome truck stop with a port-a-potty that is accessible only by rowboat.

The Duplo blocks smell great, too.  Sometimes, when no one is looking, I take just a lick...and then my eyes roll back in my head and I lose all control.  I must. eat. the. Legos. 

That's when I sneak into my older human brother's room.  He has an amazing Lego box filled with the tiniest of Legos.  Oh, they smell delicious!

I look to the left.

And then I look to the right.  I have to make sure that no one is watching.

And then I strike.  Fast like white lightning!  I go in for the kill - the Legos are mine!  All mine!

I stop for a minute to survey the goods.  Oh, what a wonderful bounty of Legos I have stolen!

My favorite is rolling the Legos around in my mouth, especially the little ones.  The smaller the better, because then I can hide them in my jowls and make my humans pull them out one by one. (Sidenote:  if you look closely, you will see some Shih-Tzu legs in this photo.  My sisters are supposed to be working lookout).

And then my older human brother walks in and catches me red-pawed.  Notice the two doofuses in the back.  Some lookout team I've got.

Of course, my older human brother has to tell the big human.  And then I have to sit in the corner for eating the Legos, because if you do the crime, you do the time - apparently.  Don't worry, I'll poop under his bed talk to him about the tattling later.

Next time, I have to swoop in like the White Lightning that I am, steal the goods, and make my escape.  And when my older human brother complains that some Legos are missing, I'll just blame the pug.


  1. Are you saying there is such a thing as 'Mischief Monday?' Really? No one told me! MOUSES! Excuse me, I have some mischief to do....


    1. Yes! Mondays are supposed to be filled with mischief! Can't wait to hear all about your adventures!

  2. I certainly hope you don't get caught pooping under his bed or you might just end up in the corner again lol :)

  3. Monday's aren't complete without a little mischief so do your thing White Lightening.

  4. You are one mischievous pup! I hope you don't eat too many legos. I'm sure that has to cause some rumblies in the tummy.

  5. I'm sure they taste delicious but I don't know if they're going to be too good for your tummy!

  6. Watch out Lego mini-figures, your days could be numbered, lol! :)

  7. BOL!! You are so sneaky, too bad you got caught stealing the Lego's this time - oh well, Shih Tzu happens!
