She Just Played with the Wrong Toy

Yes, I am thankful that Peanuts doesn't eat poo or wallow on mud. But today, she just played with the wrong toy. I heard her barking repetitively (the sound I hear when she gets fixated on a toy). Of course, since we were inside the house, I didn't mind following her everywhere.

She triumphantly carries something unto her sleeping spot and starts playing with it. Biting it playfully while lying down, rolling and biting it more. Eventually, I grew curious as to what she was enjoying at my feet. It felt soft and not papery...

It was a dead little mouse. Had I allowed her to, she would've probably added the dead mouse into her toy collection.

You are guilty of the said act and should wallow on shame- but let me take a picture of your cuteness first!
Meanwhile, Ginger lost a tooth during our visit to the vet. It just popped out and I probably sounded like a deranged mommy asking why it happened... eventually I agreed with the bone chewing theory (aside from the fact that she's a five-months old losing some baby teeth.)

  1. Oh no poor Ginger - hope he's Ok without that tooth. And Peanut - a dead mouse? At least it wasn't a live one - our cats used to bring them in and drop them in the house and hope they'd stick around to be played with later!! Sorry you didn't get to see Aoife's video clip - Leigh has tried reposting it so you could have another go. Love from Magic xx

    1. No luck at all. I mean, sure it's great to see that Peanuts is driving all the mousies away, but come on. Playing with a dead one... -.-

  2. Hahaha Peanuts! We're so glad, though, that your Mommy saw it before you added it to your toy pile.

    1. Lol, How could I not see it. It was under my work table and she was play biting with it. LOL.

      I'm glad it hasn't been added in her toy pile.

    1. Imagine a mouse in the size of a pinky... talk about finger food.

      Well, at least I now have an idea for a Valentine Gift.

  5. Uh oh Peanuts, it sounds like you were busted!! I think my Mum would have freaked out if she'd found it! :)

    I remember the days when I used to loose my teeth, around the same age as Ginger, Mum found some by standing on them on the carpet, I think she's still got about 5 in a little box, no idea why she's keeping them?!

    Have a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

    1. Yeah, the doctor told me to expect those toofs ^_^

      So I supposed I'll be giving this one to the canine tooth fairy.

  6. I can relate to this whole story! Except the tooth popping out part. That would have been scary!

    1. Hope the tooth fairy gives us something in dollar currency ^_^.

      I was thinking since Peanuts is a terrier mix, she was born to play track the mousy.

  9. Too funny!! Thankfully I've never come across my guys using a mouse as a chew toy. I hope it never happens!

    1. I certainly hope so... It gives a new meaning to the word predator-ish behaviour.

    1. LOL. Well enough that she doesn't carry anymore of her newly found friends... hopefully.

  11. Oh yucky!!!! Peanut should stick to only playing with real toy toys... Dead mice are not good chew toys.

    1. If I had my way with the rules, I would've set my foot down and not allow those mice in the house.

      Unfortunately, I lack the talent of being the mouse whisperer. Lol

  14. So what's wrong with chewing on a dead mouse?? Think of all the extra vitamins and minerals Peanut was getting!! BOL!! Believe me, with 2 cats and 6 dogs we have had our share of rodent catches around here!

    Sounds like the Tooth Fairy will be making a visit tonight for Ginger. :)

    Thank you for your concerns about Blaze. No there is nothing wrong. Blaze was one of our dogs from our litter, who was returned to us after being horribly abused and when I looked at her and her puppy face flashed before me, I just had a greater understanding of the gratitude that she was with us. And that even though I had to divide the house into two packs to keep her, I would do it a thousand times over to have her home. So to answer your question, everything is wonderful. :)

    Thanks so much for asking.

    1. I knew something had happened to her ^_^. Is she okay? Can you show us how she is now?

      It just breaks my heart how people are capable of taking responsibilities they can't handle. This isn't a job, we're talking about another life form, here.

  15. Oh eww ick Peanuts! Yuck. You're supposed to play with fake mice, not real ones!

    Hope everything's okay with Ginger. We discovered at a vet visit last summer that Bella had actually broken a tooth and also went with the "what did she chew on" theory. If the vet didn't seem worried and it doesn't happen again any time soon, I would imagine that's the only theory you can go with...

    1. Ginger didn't even make a sound. My partner was just surprised when it fell on his hand.

      Yes, I think I'll be getting her one this Valentines Day.

    1. I could imagine that. She does love climbing up and down the couch... if that counts.

  18. Peanuts, we are just not sure mousies are good playthings although you sure made it sound fun. Here in New Mexico, Momma freaks out about mice because some of ours in the wild have Hanta Virus so she says we can't play with ANY rodents.

    We hope the tooth fairy brings Ginger a nice chewie bone.

    And momma is still under the weather but is taking LOTS of vitamin C, eating cranberries, drinking green tea (she still is kinda crabby...don't tell her I said that).

    1. Haha.Vitamin C is good for your momma. Good thing she's taking care of herself.

      Ginger will probably be given treat biscuit for being such an angel when it fell.

      That's scary. Mice here can bring Leptospirosis, it's a deadly disease too...good thing she's finished all her shots.

  19. Oh boy! A dead mouse...that would be fun..haha!
