Photo Finish Friday

Tail wags, all - it's me, Stormy! Today, I'm going to combine Photo Finish Friday with a little (not) trick for Ludo's contest. I've been doing this fabulous (not) trick every evening for the past few weeks and it's great fun.

I wait until my pack-mates and Mom & Dad get settled down and comfy in the living room, then I break out in song in the bedroom. Mom usually gives me a few minutes, then gets worried that I might be getting into "mischief". "Mischief"? Me? Puh-lease. Where does she GET these ideas?!!? I'm over 13 years old - I do not get into "mischief"!

"What? The little pillow? Hey, why do you think they call them 'throw pillows'?"

Ha roo roo roo! I've got to remember to tell Ammy that one. "Throw pillows". Ha roo roo roo!

So... Mom asks me to stop throwing the throw pillow around. Fine. Here's the best part of the (not) trick:

I didn't touch the throw pillow. It just sort of... moved while I was throwing the quilt and sheets around.

I can't believe she accuses me of getting into "mischief", can you?

Hope you like this (not) trick, Ludo!

Tail wags,


  1. Pssssst....

    Please don't tell BUT

    I do that to Mom's bed when she's not looking...


    NICE PIKHS Stormy!

    Great (not) Trick too!


  2. Nice! I especially love how your furry butt is resting on the pillow on the last photo! I love to turn down the bed just like that too.

  3. Storm, I sure hope you leave mints on the bed when you turn it down for your humans. After all, that would be the polite thing to do.
    Have a woooonderful wooooeeekend!

  4. Stormy, we understand you are a mature sensible dog - what on earth can your mom mean by mischief?
    We can see you are helping to get the bed ready.
    In posh hotels that would be done for your parents so they should count themselves very lucky having you to do it for them.
    love and kisses

  5. Nothing like messing up a beautifully made bed without doing anything! LOL! Shame on you! Too bad you are super cute doing it! It looks like you don't have to be a puppy to be forgiven for stuff!

  6. You are such a smart cookie :p

  7. Hi, guys, it's me, Nessa :-)

    Stormy, your way of not-making bed is hilarious. Way to go! I should try it some time hehe...

    Kisses and hugs,

  8. It does not look like you are getting into mischief to us. It looks like you are getting into bed. Humans.

    P.S. - Throw pillows. Snicker.

  9. That might be a trick I could do! I am going to go on Mom's bed and try it right now.

    Thanks, Stormy!


  10. You're watching out for their safety by making sure that squirrels weren't hiding under the pillows!!

  11. Mischief? You? Your mom is Mistaken!

  12. I so love (not) tricks!!! They are my favorite!!


  13. Hey Stormy, we don't get to do that on our humans' bed we don't even get to get on the bed. You must be so smart because you have picked the best part of the bed for your sweet head.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  14. throw pillows - thats a really good one - we have to try that with mommy - we make a mess of the bed too - and woodrow makes a nest with the comforter!! all the time

  15. oooooooooooooh I have never ever seen a bed, not to mention a throw pillow.........

    you are my total hero Stormy

    three years my senior but so experienced in the ways of the world.

    your long term friend Marvin xxxxx

  16. OMDDDDDDDDDDDD Sweet Stormy...
    how can your mommy call you mischief?????
    We can't understand it!!
    Your mommy is wrong!!!!!!
    Sure you're a very very sensible and adorable and tidy dog....
    sooooooooooooo....how she can't understand that you are preparing bed for her????
    Awwwwwwwwwww...these humans sometimes don't understand how much kindly we're!!!!!
    Great (NO)Trick Stormy!!!!!
    Not too much dosgs wiil be sooooooooooo good in making bed for them humans!!!!
    We love youuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!
    Sweet kisses and licks

  17. I loved your not trick! Especially the part where you didn't touch the throw pillow and got all comfy.

    Of course, I never do stuffs like that, infact, the bed does not look like that right now because I has just done that. Nup, nup.

  18. You are an excellent bed maker. You have got some awesome skills, I could learn from you.

    Pee Ess: I love how you prop your bottom on the pillow.

  19. What get into mischief what are they thinking?
    Callie loves to roach on Toph's bed getting under the quilt and pillows. We don't tell him though. Mums to word ok?

  20. That's not just a (not)trick, Stormy...that's a service! It's "turn down" service! All you need to do to create the illusion of 5-star luxury is put something sweet on the pillow-but, oh! That's YOU!

  21. hehe Stormy, we do that trick as well, it is such fun. Especially as the humans then have to make the bed again...BOL

    Have a great weekend all of you. :-)

  22. You are just the cleverest pup ever Stormy. I'm so glad you're my friend.

  23. Hi, Stormy!
    I do that No-Trick too! and my mom laughs a lot because the pillows are bigger than me!
    Kisses and hugs

  24. Herro Stormy!
    I think your trick is wonderful and that you look even better on the bed than the throw cushion!
    I would give my right paw to be snuggled up next to your lovely warm fur - I am so cold :(

  25. That's a great not Trick! :) I wish I could get up on the bed, but I will have to be satisfied with my futon. I need to tell mom that I need more pillows on the futon! :)


  26. Storms, your the BEST!


  27. Hey there, Storm
    What funny pics!...you kicking up a storm.
    What talent too!...a horizontal bed dance:)!
    We think you are so cool.
    Lots of licks

  28. Whoa! Looks like a storm hit the bed!! I do that too in the mornings just before mommy made the bed...otherwise she's spank me!


  29. Now that is a great trick! I should try it some time. I could learn so much from you, Miss Stormy.


  30. that is not mischief - that is comfort

  31. Hey Stormy,
    No problem because "throw" is not really an adjective like in "throw pillows" but it is rather a verb like in "throw pillows." You're Army so just think of it as a command not a description. A nice finishing touch would be to pass a little gas from your curly butt on to the pillow by your backside. That'd crack us all up to no end.
