On The Naughty List

I've waited four years to do this....patiently waiting, tricking Mom and Dad into believing that I could be trusted, occasionally stealing a sniff but finally today my charade has come to an end.  It was SO worth it too! Muuhahahahahaaaaa!  They never imagined I was capable of this as it has never happened before, but when they went shopping today I showed them that I indeed do have a naughty side.
When they walked in the door Mom quickly spotted the ripped up, shiny bag on the floor.  It only took her a second to register what had happened as I sat on the couch looking ever so sweet.  She immediately scanned the room for other ripped up bags but found none...when she realized I had opened the only important one under the tree (MINE) she started to laugh as did Dad.  Shooo...I thought this meant I was in the clear.  She noticed that I had carefully displaced the package that was in front of mine trying to hide it and then ever so gently pulled mine out and started tearing it to shreds.  I don't think they realized what a superior sniffer I actually have.  They thought it was amazing I was able to only pick MY present from the pile...humans they'll never get it! ;)

Mom then found my new toy by the slider where I like to lay with my was slightly chewed, one squeaker was popped but other than that it still looked good.  At this point, I thought we would all break out into play and start chasing each other around the house with my new toy, but Mom (continuing to laugh) proceeds to get out a new bag, put MY toy in it, and then place it WAY out of my reach toward the back of the tree!  HOW RUDE!  She said it would be like a brand new surprise when I opened it again on Christmas!  BAH HUMBUG, I say!

So....I will be like this until Christmas, keeping my sniffer away from any interesting smells and also keeping it warm.

It's not like you opened anyone else's present... I don't think that should put you on Santa's naughty list - you were just trying to go with the 12 Days of Christmas theme... Just saying!

Nala, you are adorable! I'm sure Santa will still bring you some nice pressies :)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow, Nala - that IS impressive picking out just YOUR present! I think I would have just opened every other present there too, just for fun! Ha! ha! :-)

Well, actually, to be honest with you, a lot of the time, I just like tearing off all the paper and opening packages, more than what's inside!

Good Job!! You only went after what was going to be your anyway - right??? Great Sniff Nala.

JD and Max said...

Hiya Nala,

Oh, we're so impressed that you knew which present was yours. We just assume that everything under the tree is for us - why would anyone get a gift for anyone else here when there's US around eh?! He he he - don't worry - we're sure this small misdemenour will not put your permenantly on Santa Paws's naughty list!!

Excellent work, Nala. Since it was your own present, we do not see the problem at all.

Remi said...

Those silly hoomans! Do they really think a piece of paper is going to fool our sniffers?! I'm mailing out a package to you tomorrow with a little something for Christmas. Hope you like it (no carrots!)

Ohmidogness, Nala! That is about the funniest thing I ever heard of! I'm so proud of you for figuring out which one was yours. You are a clever, clever girl!

Hello beautiful Nala

I'm not too fussed with toys, but hey, if it is meant for you - good job bark I. How are your tendons keeping up? I had a little ready back and was so sorry to hear you have had problems Poor Nala.

You look very cute hiding away there though, I must say.
