~ Puppy Antics ~

Yesterday I decided I better get some July 4th decor up, if I was going to.
I spent the morning tidying up the porch and snapped a few pics for the blog .
After viewing the pictures, I remembered I had purchased a pretty patriotic table cloth on clearance last year.

I hurried in to get it, placed it on the table, stepped back and admired it fondly. I was proud of myself for buying it and remembering it.

Well....the contractor left early yesterday, he is finished until the tub arrives so I decided to spend the afternoon in the pool and catch up on some reading.

Look what my little babies did,
they really had a good time while I was out back relaxing in the pool.
They even chewed on the wooden watermelon.

Look how incredibly close this flower pot was to the edge of the table.
Thank heavens it didn't fall make a huge mess.
So glad they stopped pulling on the cloth when they did.   I stood in bewilderment and just shook my head in disbelief

You better run for your life you little booger!!!   (Ringo when she was a pup)

Happy Weekend, stay cool and have some fun,


  1. Oh, Shanda! It probably did upset you, but it is funny! Silly little puppy! Your porch looks pretty!
    Don't be too mean to the babies! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;0

  2. Bad Puppies! But amazing that pot didn't fall. No I would never tell a puppy it was bad... just tell it not to do the bad thing again :-)

  3. I can't believe that pot, either! :-O Your porch is so pretty!

  4. Ouch, that would have hurt if it fell on one of them. Oh how they can get into things. Too cute! Love the table cloth by the way.

  5. It looks so festive! I love the 4th of July! It really is the kick-off to summer, I think.

  6. Oooops!
    Yup, that was a close one.
    Then I look at the last post of him all "dressed up" and thought "who could get mad at that face . . ."

    HA! Have a good weekend!

  7. Wow! That was a close one! Your porch looks great.

    Have a great 4th.


  8. Hi Shanda,
    Your porch is just beautiful! I love all your red, white and blues! It give you that Main Street USA feeling doesn't it? : )
    What a cute picture of your puppy running away! We have one just like that here. Can be naughty at times but is to darn cute to get into trouble!
    Have a great weekend.

  9. I can't believe that didn't fall off of the table! What luck, for you and the pups!!


    In answer to your question on my blog...yes, Rocky still lives with us! We've had him for about 9 months. He is really, really spoiled! I have been picking mulberries for him every evening. He eats until he can't eat anymore! The raspberries will be next to ripen. He loves those, too. Also, cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, plums, get the idea!

  10. HI Shanda,
    Oh wow, what great pics! Evidence photos. lol :-) Your porch is so pretty. Thank you for sharing.
    Take care, have a wonderful weekend.

  11. I'll say! Those last few inches may have meant the difference between life and death. Ha! She's still a cutie pie.

  12. Your porch says "summer" all over! Aren't puppies little pests, but oh so cute! Have a great weekend, Dawn

  13. Well... they are sure cute puppies but they almost made a big mess:)

  14. Hey Shanda!
    Oh I've had moments in my home with all our critters and I just can't ever get mad 'cause they are all just so darn cute :)

    Now on to the faucet. I think the chrome will be perfect. When it's finished and all pulled together, you will stand back and know your choice was right! I love chrome in an old-fashioned bathroom. I love the "clean" lines.
    Glad you are getting some "me" time. I need some!

  15. The porch is adorable! Love it! And that begonia was just a sneeze away from doom!! Great pic!

  16. What a little stinker!! Soo cute and your porch looks great too!!


  17. Wow, what a close call Shanda!!! LOL! Love your 4th of July decor and those cute pups!

  19. You're little puppies have gotton so cute. Love the porch also!

  20. When I read your post, it gave me the motivation to go out and decorate my porch for the 4th of July. Thanks! Now if I can just find all of my stuff that I bought last year on clearance in my storage shed! LOL

    I can't believe that flower pot didn't fall off! You were so lucky!

  21. the best part about puppies..not!!! SO glad the pot didnt break!!!! :)

  22. Oh those ornery pups! Thank goodness Spencer's early 'chewing on everything in sight' days are past. It will really test your patience! Gotta love 'em though! Twyla

  23. Sounds like the dogs had quite a day!!! My dogs are getting older now 13 and 1/2 years, 12 years and 5 years old now..and don't act as silly as they did when they were younger..probably won't be much time before we bring another puppy into the family though.
    I LOVE the music playing on your blog tonight...I could listen to it for hours!
    Your porch looks great! I need to get my little bit of 4th of July decorations out...a couple small things for the porch, and a quilt and a few things for the living room..thanks for the reminder!!
    Have a great week Shanda!!

  24. Don't know if you got my first comment. So...I was lol at your naughty puppies! That pot was teetering on the edge. Kinda like having a bunch of 2 year olds, huh? Love the festive! Btw, I've changed my blog (no longer The Southern Mom)!

  25. Hi! I just discovered your blog today. Your porch and patriotic decor are gorgeous! I love the picture of the pot balanced precariously on the edge there, and the dog running away. A very funny post!

  26. Love how your porch turned out. Silly puppies, looks like they had fun. Amazing how the pot did not fall over.

    Hugs :)


  27. wow....those puppies are crazy! I'm glad the pot survived...THAT would have been a mess. But it's hard to stay mad for long at those cute little boogers! GREAT POST
