Saturday SlobberLove

Sometimes on Saturday, after we’ve spent the better part of the week working our ass off trying to behave better—Trying to not bark. Trying to not scream like Bjork in dog language.  Trying to not jump all over the place and yell when that fluffy tall glass o’ water from a couple streets over walks by with her owner.  Trying to not gnaw on blankets like a crack addict.  Trying to not lick our own butt hole for hours on end.  Trying to not play the dangerous, forbidden and futile Chase-the-Rabid-Squirrel game.  Trying not to act like Godzilla when we see the menacing pit bull that frightens our owner…

Sometimes when we TRY SO HARD, our efforts do not go unnoticed and we receive an incredible reward for being a better boy  and when this happens we are overcome with such joy that we chew the left ear off our new beady eyed gift and then we clutch it close to us and we whisper, Welcome To Our World Lil’ Orangey, Welcome.

Yours In Self-Improvement,
Sid of the Sincere

      Judy,
      Thank you for this BEAUTIFUL poem. I read it out loud to anyone that would listen—squirrels, crows, passing shelties, the kitchen curtains. I felt it in my paws.
      Love,
      Cooper

    The pressing question is whether Sharky is jealous or relieved. Does this make Sharky a Sister Wife?

    • Cupcake Murphy Cupcake Murphy says:

      Sharky is currently convalescing from a snout injury so he is relieved to be out of the spotlight for the time being.

    Cooper can totally take that pit bull.
