Slog It Blog It, Top Tip For back To School!

Molly The Wally goes back to school

The Best excuses for not having done your homework!

The old cliché of blaming the dog for eating ones homework no longer works as an excuse nowadays. However being wrongly declared dead or frightening ghosts might just work. Or try espionage or being held at gunpoint. These are just some of the excuses that make up the litany of odd reasons students have used to explain why they have not completed their homework. John Curry a lecturer in computing at City of Bath College compiled the bizarre list of downright strange but legitimate reasons that pupils have used. Feel pity for the poor student who was mistaken for a spy and held in China. He then had the mammoth task of convincing his teacher that it had actually happened. Another unfortunate student was granted an extension after the Indian government tried to seize his home after he had been declared legally dead. Blaming the dog for eating ones work is too flimsy an excuse to cut the mustard these days. About time we dogs were let off the hook. Have you ever destroyed documents you shouldn’t have? Mine was a passport and very tasty it was too!

Don’t forget it is back to school at Blogville so pop over to Frankie to see all the classes and why not pop over to Sarge to get your backpack decorated.


  1. Hi Molly

    Well.... Mom told me that when I was a puppy I ate the electricity bill..... but that wasn't a problem... why should she pay the bill ??? I don't need electricity, I can see perfectly at night !!


  2. Thank Dog the kids are back to school, there is more room for us in the park now!

  3. Floyd and I have eaten all sorts of documents, no homeworks yet though...

  4. You are so right, I will now use the excuse that I was held up at gunpoint. Much more believable!! BOL!

  5. Hi Molly
    You are looking very studious today and I L O V E your glasses...very Vogue!
    As for registering..at one point Frankie had a list of the 'teachers' on his blog. The teachers were supposed to post a registration blog post. And I think you can register up until September 10 or 11. If you would like to register for our class let us know
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  6. You sure look great in glasses! I ate Mom's phone info book hehe.
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  7. I've been to Bath! But not the college.

    Jimmy used to LOVE to shred all of the junk mail when he was a pup!

  8. teeeheee.....as a teacher, I heard the best. But "MY DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK" actually was used a couple of times......I quickly told my students that that was the oldest excuse in the book.....some of them actually did tell the truth and simply said, "I had hockey practice....I went shopping.....I didn't want to do it." OK....CHECK! ZERO FOR YOU!

    I tell ya, dogs get the bad end of the stick, don't they Miz Molly!!!!!! You look like my fourth grade teacher with those glasses!!!!!!!

  9. With a lot of homework on Ipads and such it would be hard to use us for an excuse anyway. Don't think I have ever eaten an important paper.

  10. Well, I did eat my mom's slippers, hats, and gloves before and I had no excuse for doing any of it except maybe I need my mom to buy me some REAL toys! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

  11. Molly you are looking rather teacherish today! Mom said she has used the excuse that she spilled coffee on her paperwork....it didn't work! Or her computer has a virus and all her work disappeared..(did happen) we don't eat paper at our house, we just shred it!

  14. The dogs haven't eaten any homework yet, but I would bet Sassy would if it were left unattended!

  15. I have never eaten impawtant papers but I have had the odd sock or two :)
    Have a great day Molly xx00xx

  16. I like to eat bills, it's a good snack - not too much calories...otherwise storage cards, I ate one and had 2 gigabyte inside me - unfortunately I didn't found a converting tool for calories in gigabyte since yet...

  17. I love your glasses! I don't like to eat paper. I did try it once, but found it a tad on the bland side!!


  18. Molly guess what you did pre-register for our Napping 101. We put up our post
    on August 27 asking all who wanted to attend to leave a comment and you did

    Hugs madi your BFFF

  19. this is right and need full and very help full. I really need to know this.I wish you post this type of things many many times. I have a dog food site all news about any dog food news about there likes, cost, activity are here. that link is.

  20. When I was little I ate a couple of pages of Beth's book.... You look VERY smart, my friend!

  21. No papers, but I did chew on the bottom of the couch when I was young ;)

  22. Those are some over the top excuses! I've actually never destroyed any document but I can't say the same about Mommy's toys (when I was a puppy)...heh heh heh.

    Love, Whisky

  23. LOVE your look. Very intelligent and stylish. Thanks for all your comments over at Fidos. LOVE your blog!!!

  24. Dear Molly,

    I honestly really truly did eat my littlest person's homework one day. Well, I chewed on the corner anyways. And bounced on it a few times. It made a great sound under my paws.

    But I am much older now, and much more dignified. I would never do that. Maybe.


  25. You ate a passport? That is very international of you! Bet your peeps were not happy about that one. So far we only have eaten wood things but we are young yet so the possibilities are endless!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  26. This has to be the cutest picture have ever seen! Molly your blog posts are always so interesting! How i missed reading your blog while i was on holidays! I'm having a bit more time to myself this week and i think i'll finally be able to properly thank you in public for the award you gave me!
    Lots of love,
    Indigo the Great Dane.

  27. Gee, we've never eaten anything important before. We need to work on this!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  28. YOu look ever so intelligent Molly wearing those glasses. We can only assume you off to school later this week as you appear to have all your school items at the ready. Hope you have enough bone money...

    Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

  29. Have a great "back to school" week!

  30. Mom works with bad people. You should hear the excuses, BOL
    Benny & Lily

  31. yep kids can't say that dogs ate their homework because everything is done on the computer nowadays!

  32. My lady wonders if she can use, "my dog ate the wall" to get out of going to work.

    Hope you had a great day, Hailey and Zaphod

  33. I think this is a dog's owner issue! Cats love to study and do homework! My suggestion is to remove owls as a symbol of inteligence and cats assume that task...

  34. We love you in glasses... reminds us of our favorite librarian! :)

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  35. You look grrrreat, Molly!
    Excuses... excuses...
    Kisses and hugs

  36. Ainda bem que nunca precisei usar essa desculpa! kkkk
    Nossa Molly! Você ficou um charme com esses óculos!

    Beijos e tudo de bom!!!

  37. I ate a dollar bill one time, it was pretty tasty, but Mommy cut me off on that. A passport sounds yummy.

    Loveys Sasha

  38. Mowzers...declared DEAD? My only claim to destruction was legit...after all, Mommy*DID* call is pee-mail...

  39. Yes, I really was given all those excuses. Of course, I was more sympathetic if they mentioned a dog in their excuse.

  40. Hi Molly,

    Yeah blame it on the dog.........heard it all before, what about the lecturer who lost it some where between his home and the class room, did he give himself detention or a 100 lines, guess not!
