My scheme EXPOSED!! The chickenDALE (part 3)

To read the full chickenDALE story, please visit:

SIGH.... I guess I must come clean now that my scheme has been EXPOSED by Murph the Dog and Buster. I also get the feeling that most of you think the SuperDALE = chickenDALE, and I just can't have my buddies think that of me.

Murph the Dog has exposed my plan..... he knew right from the beginning that:

ChickenDALE = SmartDALE = SuperDale = Miss Sunshade

And Buster, he knew ever since day one that:

Aspiring actressDALE = Miss Sunshade


Mom came home tonight and I greeted her *ahem*.. upstairs.... I was doing my usual "chickenDALE act" to try and get her to carry me downstairs. However, mum was a little different tonight. She brought my harness up when she came to greet me. I thought oh great, she's gonna put my harness on, carry me downstairs and then take me out. So I eagerly helped to try and get my harness on quicker........

But, for some reason, my chickenDALE act DIDN'T WORK!!! I couldn't believe it!! She put my harness on, and told me to walk down those steep steps by myself!! I tried to act like I was really scared, you know the whole chickenDALE thing, but she didn't fall for it this time .... (sometimes, that woman is just as headstrong as me) Anyway, so I thought what the heck, I might as well just do them stairs since my scheme was already exposed...


(notice no treats, no help, no runners ?)

So I did those stairs, albeit a little shaaaaaa-ky since I haven't done them for quite a while. Yup, you guessed it. It was all an ACT!! Yes, I can do those stairs if I reeeeeeeeeeeally HAVE to. However, I vowed to myself the day mum stopped the crazyDALE from pinballing down those stairs that I would make her pay for ending my fun (I really enjoyed pinballing!). So I decided to act like a chickenDALE, get her sympathy, and MAKE HER to all the work!! Hoomans are very predictable animals, my mum is no exception. She fell for my scheme, and started carrying me down "those" stairs. That was until my scheme got exposed tonight......

I just hope that my chickenDALE act will keep working even after my scheme is exposed.... *mum's not talking to me*

Anyway, after I was made to go down those stairs, I decided to go check out what important things mum just had to do on a Friday night leaving the poor me stranded I mean all alone upstairs. (mum's note: she was downstairs when I left!!)

I found an ALDO bag, mum seemed frantic when I picked it up, so I knew I had picked the right bag to destroy!!


Since I have such a hard time saying NO to dogs (ahem.. evident by the # of boyfriends I have), I have added three late comers to our X-mas Card Exchange. Please check the final list of 61 here:

Watch out, your Mommy might do the same thing to you! Chicken-Mom.

But, on the bright side, this is evidence that those acting classes she paid for with her hard earned money worked!

Oooo... Sunshade, sounds like you are in a little bit of trouble here. ALDO bag?! If I so leave a teeth mark on MaMa's ALDO bag (never mind the content) I'm sure I'll be off dinner for 3days.

I think you at least should have got treats for walking down the stairs.

Then leaving you alone!!!

That bag got what it deserved.

Miss Sunshade,
My mom was laughing at all the leg flapping you do when your mom puts your harness on. I turn my head so my mom can't get my harness on. Why should we make ANYTHING easy for our moms? They need a challenge!

Congrats to the chicken/super/Miss Sunshade-DALE for getting down those stairs alone! That was a remarkable feat, worthy of an Aldo bag. I hope your mom left something expensive in there for you to munch on as a reward!

is that mean no more chickenDALE story to tell anymore?

Joe Stains said...

sunshade, perhaps you need to leave some real estate brochures around for single level homes. obviously, your needs are not being met! making you WALK down the stairs, who does that!!

I don't know what ALDO is but I am guessing it was not something for you!

Sunshade! I thought you looked suspiciously like the chickenDALE but wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt. Well, you certainly know how to get what you want. It's just lucky the caretaker caught on to you.

Charlie said...

An act? An ACT!?? I think you were just waiting to change into your superDALE outfit, like Superman changes into his. He never does super things when he's Clark Kent!

Hey Miss Sunshade,

and there I was thinking I was in triple dale heaven, with triplets living at your house.

But hey, one of you is more than enough.

Hope the Aldo bag yielded lots of yummy interesting chewable secrets. Hee hee hee.

Chow for now,

Tin Tin xo

Toby said...

Sunshade, you did it!! Yay!~ Hmmm, you have to come up with another plan to get more treats now! I suggest refusing to go up the stairs now...hahaha!~


Maximillian the Valliant said...

Well Sunny,

I'm glad you finally gave in for your Mom....but I must echo Zach's question. What is Aldo? We have an Aldi's but it certainly isn't a big deal (unless you are trying to save money on groceries).


Jay said...

Errr Sunshade, was the stuff INSIDE the bag okay? If I were to even touch the Aldo bag, I think I will get a beating.


Chelsea said...

Ofcourse you werent chicken dale. You saw the ALDO bag.

All GIRLS will do what is necessary for a pair of shoes.
Even us doggies.

hee hee sunshade it's funny seeing you getting into the harness :p looks kinda like your mom's your servant while you're the impatient queen that can't stand around all day waiting :p you know what? HM likes to go to Aldo too but she almost always does only window shopping cos she says it's too expensive :p she wears out shoes so quickly it's as if her soles were sandpaper :p


Hana said...

Sunshade, you sure had me fooled! You are a good actress. Now that your scheme has been exposed, whatareya gonna do to get sympathy from your mom?

Deb said...

Dear Miss Sunshade, I am sooo proud of you! I too am going to miss ChickenDale stories though! I hope there were a pair of very expensive chew toys in that bag!

Your pal,
