Pet sock wars.

This is for Kate, over at The Manic Gardener:

The schnoodles have a fetish for socks, and from time to time, they'll sneak into my sock drawer and start dragging them outside. This is what greeted me when I went out the back door this morning to check on the carrots. There are actually three socks in the photo--one in the foreground, and two behind Gracie. A fourth was on the back porch. A fifth was under a bush.

I think they had heard about the sock wars over on Kate's blogsite, and wanted to get in on the action...

I love how they are looking around, as if to say, "Who dragged out all these socks?"

  3. Hilarious! What are schnoodles? Schnauzer/poodles? Do you have any socks left for your feet? I mean, I know it's warm down your way but still...

  4. Schnoodles are indeed a schnauzer/poodle mix. These little scamps were pound puppies that had been rescued by the Humane Society. They lived the first two years of their lives in a cage, and they are still skittish little things. They couldn't be sweeter, though, and they are full of mischief.

  5. Just imagine--if you hadn't gone to look at the carrots, you might be sockless! My grand-dog likes socks too.

    I made you a victim on my blog--go see!

  8. Actually pulling them out of the drawer? Sounds like a well-planned manoever. I wonder whether James A-S is training dogs in his spare time....

  9. Well, it's an open drawer, Kate, so it's scampy, but not all that hard for them to do. :-)
