Monday Mischief: Underwear Everywhere

Around here, we can't resist an underwear snatching pooch. (If you don't already know what the dog ate, well, he ate some panties that didn't belong to his momma. This is no spoiler, since it's revealed in the opening line of the book: The vet handed Maggie Baxter a plastic specimen bag containing a pair of size-tiny lavender thong panties extracted from her dog; but they were not hers.)

So, of course we fell in love with Ecco, the underwear thief, when we first met him a few months ago. Ecco is the "nawty dawg" with a big heart. His mom contacted me about spreading the word for Ecco's 2012 "Underwear Everywhere" Drive.

The flyer is a bit hard to read on my blog (I couldn't post it full size or it wouldn't fit), but below the image I've typed up the text.

"Please help Ecco, the naughty dog with a big heart, collect NEW socks, hats, gloves and underwear for the 300 plus homeless served by the Union Mission Ministries. Every year, Ecco tries to redeem himself by donating more underwear than he has destroyed over the past year. It's never too late to turn your negatives into positives! Thank you for helping Ecco with his goal of collecting over 1000 pairs of socks and undies! Please send all items to p.o. box below. If you are local (Hampton Roads), we will be happy to provide pick up! Donations can also be made via our web site, under the "BIG HEART" tab. Please write "Mission" in the comments to ensure the proper allocation of your gift."

P.O. Box 1007, Smithfield, VA 23430-1007

Rita is, amazingly, the first dog we've had that doesn't steal our undies. It never occurred to me to take a photo of Bailey or Abby scampering around with our undies (probably a good thing), but luckily we have the adorable photo of undie-thief Ecco to enjoy for Monday Mischief.

Is your dog an undie thief?

Happy Monday Mischief!


  1. Woof! Woof! I'm NOT. What a great fundraising event. Happy MM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Neither Jeffie nor Rudy are underwear thieves, but Rudy likes to steal paper. Never chews it, just takes it to bed. Great event! Sharing.

  3. BWAHAHAHAHA! What a good dog, to redeem himself by giving back! Non of my dogs have ever been underwear thieves, for which I am grateful.

  4. What a nice thing to do! Hope Ecco collects lots of clothing for his good cause.

  5. Freddie will steal anything, Gloria takes nothing! What a great fundraiser. :)

  6. Ha-ha! My Beagle IS!
    Ecco is adorable and working towards a wonderful cause!

  7. Ecco is SO cute and such a great Mischief Maker!! :)

    Luckily for my parents I stop at socks - so far! Tee Hee

    What a great idea :)

    Hope you're having a fun day :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)
