Here they are playing sort of a backwards game of peekaboo:
Even with all the wild play for about 45 minutes, Reggie still found the energy to get up to a little mischief... Nibbling on plants....
|"Mmmm. Succulents. They're so... succulent!"|
And trying to eat bark...
|His bark (addiction) is worse than his bite.|
But... When he's all cleaned up, doesn't he look like a mother's angel, complete with little gray fluffy wings and everything?
He even has an extra set of "wings" on his butt. Or maybe he's like those old 1950s Chevys with the fins.

I wrote a guest post for Digital Book Today confessing that I'm a slow reader. If you want to stop by and check it out, it's right here: In Defense of the Slow Reader.
*I tried to look up the origin of the phrase little dickens (apparently it's just from dickens being a euphemism for devil; nothing to do with Charles Dickens!) and ended up going down quite the internet rabbit hole of why we call people named Richard "Dick."
Thanks to my sis for the "angel" pics, and thanks Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!
How adorable! I love the angel's wings, esp the butt ones!ReplyDelete

He looks pretty angelic to me! Maybe his mission is just to keep you on your toes!ReplyDelete
What marvelous angel wings! I love when we can see patterns in our dogs' markings.ReplyDelete
Such an adorable little dickens!ReplyDelete
I love Reggie and his angel wings (which ALL corgis have!!!)ReplyDelete
Us too love Reggie and his angel wings. Have a marvellous Monday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Well, I just went down the Richard rabbit hole. Where I learned it's the same reason why William is shortened to Bill and Robert is shortened to Bob.ReplyDelete
Oh, and I love those Chevy tail fins.
Thanks for starting my Monday off with great entertainment! :-D
--Woofs (and purrs) from Life with Dogs and Cats.
Yes, interesting isn't it? And I read that it's also how Margaret ends up as Peg or Peggy.Delete
Seeing as how Reggie is a one year Cardigan, he's 99% little dickens, 1% little angel. (Mother Hen Alert: Be careful of that bark, it can cause intestinal blockage very easily!)ReplyDelete
I used to work with a Richard. Dick was a very appropriate nickname for this Richard in his case ;-)
Oh! yes! they are very careful about the bark. Gotta watch that kid like a hawk.Delete
Oh my gosh he's cute! I would say angel for sure.ReplyDelete
Angel, Angel, ANGEL! It sure looks like they had a great time!ReplyDelete
Reggie is a real cutie pie, but why DO we call people named Richard "Dick"?ReplyDelete
What I read said it was because really common names were often shortened, so Richard to Rick, and then the first letter would be swapped out to differentiate folks, so Rick would sometimes become Dick. Same with Robert to Rob to Bob, William to Will to Bill.Delete
Oh! That makes total sense. Thanks!Delete
So cute! It looks like everyone had a good time! Thanks for sharing the derivation of "little dickens." I find myself falling down those rabbit holes far too often... :)ReplyDelete
Definitely an angel!!ReplyDelete
Wings? Fins. Definitely fins Love that video!ReplyDelete
I shall always go for angel, with the exception for Delilah who is definitely a dickens! And now I suspect I'll be looking for that rabbit hole. :-) As you've piqued my curiosity.ReplyDelete
He is an Angel! I remember Dakota's "bark" eating days too! Not fun! I need to read your "Slow Reader" article, I actually was always a FAST reader who never remembered what they read afterwards, so now I force myself to be much, much slowerReplyDelete
lol @ bark addiction!! Over here we say "What the dickens!" instead of "what the devil". Though it's a bit old fashioned!! Can't say I've heard of little dickens! But then I don't get around much lol ;)ReplyDelete
"What the dickens" does sound "terribly British" to me. But here, some folks will say something like "why you little dickens" or "you scared the dickens out of me" - but it's not very common and kind of old-fashioned I guess.Delete
Reggie's mom here. Thanks, all of you who voted him an angel. I mostly think he's an angel, but when he gets the dickens in him there's "hell to pay." (His pop's name is Dickens, so it is appropriate for him to have some of that in him.)ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, meant to say that his dad was named Dickens and forgot! (Wonder if he was named Dickens after the author, or after the euphemism for devil??)Delete
Taryn's percentages on a one-year old Cardi's behavior cracked me up. We constantly assess the percentages of angel vs. devil time. We're actually in about 70% angel rate most of the time right now, and improving as we go.ReplyDelete
Angelic! Look at that face. Love his "wings."ReplyDelete
Angel for sure. Also I had an uncle Dick and a cousin Dickie. Then when Dickie went to college he became "Richard" and never went back.ReplyDelete
Wow - surprised he survived high school as Dickie! I'd have probably switched to Richard sooner. :)Delete
I wanted to write and let you know that I am presenting you with an award on my blog tomorrow, Tuesday February 18th. Please accept it with the love and admiration I intended. Thanks for being such an inspiration to me. My blog is Barking from the Bayou, http://mkclinton.com/
Congratulations! Melissa Clinton
Thanks again for the award, MK!Delete
He is so cute! Love his fluffiness!ReplyDelete
mother's angel! what a nice play date. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, angel, definitely angel. It's so great to watch them having so much fun, isn't it?ReplyDelete
LOL little angel of course. Who could doubt it. :)ReplyDelete
cute cute cute angel wings.ReplyDelete
He is so friggen adorable. Toby has "angel's wings" too - and he's no angel. So I'd have to vote "little dickens."ReplyDelete
It's a no brainer, of course Reggie's a little angel, aren't we all? Tee HeeReplyDelete
I hope you're having a fun day,
Your pal Snoopy :)
