DOT and I Got Grounded!

MaggieMae here. I can't believe it! My mom grounded me!! I had a couple adventures last week, when I figured how to get out of the fenced yard, so she grounded me for that! (She still doesn't know if I jumped the fence or climbed it, but I'm not telling her either!) Just because a couple different neighbors tattled on me and brought me home on a leash (although one of them had to walk the entire block and she's a lightweight and I didn't make it easy on her)!

I couldn't help myself! The bunnies running free in the next door neighbors yard just taunted the dickens out of me to chase them, so I did! I had a great time too, cause when I got home again my heart was racing and I was panting so fast and hard! Then mom had to clean out these little green balls from my hair that I got from the weeds we ran through. She wasn't too happy with me at all. You can see from the pictures below how she grounded me for now. I do still get to run the yard when she's out there with me, but she keeps expecting me to show her how I got over the fence and I won't! Not giving away my secret..... no way!! Although I did hear her her talking to my sister's husband Henry about what to do to build up the height of the fence, and maybe even putting some kind of "inward" barrier to keep me from going over it again... darn it all! Humans...! No consideration for letting a dog just be a dog! (Although she said she just wants to keep me safe.) Even when we walked after that she kept jerking the leash on my walking harness if I even tried to "look" for bunnies, then telling me "NO!" so I'd just keep looking forward! I could tell she was not very happy with my adventures! So see what she did now!

It sure isn't any fun being grounded!!

Maggie Mae,

Oh I feel for you girlfuriend. At my house we calls that long thing the "Chain of Shame" When I don't listen to my mom when I am outside playing she puts me on it. :(

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

I know what you mean , Maggie Mae. I remember one summer as a kid when it seemed I couldn't do anything right, and spent all but one week of my summer being grounded! Not fun ...

Charli and me said...

Oh poor MaggieMae you are such a little stinker! You know your mom is just worried about you. Charli has been grounded for getting out of the yard too. Now we have boards all over the yard so she can't get out. Why is it all of you dogs think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? I hope you have learned a lesson. If you have pass it along to Charli because she is still quite the hooligan :>)
