More Than One Way to Get Inside on a Muddy Day

Raining, raining, raining. The good thing about rain is that I can get all MUDDY!!! The bad thing about rain is that if I'm all muddy, the persnickety Spokeswoman won't let me in the house.

Case in point: Stupid Spokeswoman didn't REALIZE it was misting out this morning when she let me in the house. She figured it out pretty quickly though, the moment I shook my coat out, showering her precious computer with a bazillion droplets! I was just getting warmed up for a really GOOD shake as she grabbed my collar and unceremoniously THREW me out the back door.

However, I am smart enough to get back IN the house!...I just waited until a police siren began sounding and then stood at alert attention (within sight of the backdoor) and did NOT initiate a wailing contest between Rivie and myself. (Rivie isn't imaginative enough to wail on her own...she just does it if I lead the way...which I ALWAYS do, even though we invariably get into trouble from the Noise Police Spokeswoman we are both saddled with.) This morning, though, I just stood there silently...allowing a perfectly good siren to go unaccompanied. The obnoxious Spokeswoman was pleasantly amazed at my new found self-control...so much so, that she let me in the backdoor even though I was caked in mud! She toweled me off and now I am lounging about in the family room wondering which lovely photo of me would best fit the mood of this post...

I think maybe THIS one...



They say a picture is worth a thousand words...well, this snapshot tells you all you need to know about my ultra-demanding Spokeswoman. She has to control EVERYTHING...and she isn't any too patient in the process... You've all seen the beautiful photos of myself, Gabs, and Vader taken yesterday, but what you DIDN'T see is the torment we were put through BEFORE those photos were taken. The domineering Spokeswoman was so busy bossing all the people and dogs around that it is a wonder any of us were able to smile for the photos afterwards. You guys will never know how trying it is to stay by her side. But, I am a loyal dog...no matter what she dishes out, I weather it and remain faithful...that's just who I am.

*************************************************************************************

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the excitement we had last night. The tornado sirens were wailing...sounding so close that it sent chills down my spine. Next thing I know, the Spokesguy has all the little Ninjas drug out of bed and gathered into the bathtub with pillows over the heads and the Spokeswoman drug us out of our dog houses and paraded us through the house and out into the garage. She let all three of us climb into the car, cracked the windows, and left. We were a bit confused. Being brought to the car, we thought we were going to get to go for a ride, but she just left us there by ourselves! I got into the driver's seat and honked the horn by sitting on the steering wheel (I like to do that when she leaves me alone in the car), but she ignored my summons. I REALLY need to work on her social skills! We never did figure out what her plan was. We finally just all gave up, curled up, and went to sleep. I was right in the middle of leaping ten feet into the air and NABBING that INSOLENT SQUIRREL when the intrusive Spokeswoman woke me up and drug us all out of the car, back through the house, and out the back door again. I don't know what that was all about. So irritating. First she doesn't even take us on a car ride and then, just as we have all gotten cozy and are happily dreaming, she flips on all the lights and yanks us out of bed. I hear she does that to the Ninjas ALL THE TIME. Talk about IRRITATING!!!

What? No comment from KHYRA yet? I thought she had an alarm that sounded at her house the moment anyone publishes a new post!

Ransom, you are pretty obnoxious yourself...but, I do have to agree with you that you got the short end of the stick when it came to Spokespeople. I haven't seen much of your Spokeswoman, but my neck is still sore from all the yanking and jerking she did to ME yesterday. What is her problem, anyway? And why on earth does MY Spokeswoman hang out with her?

I can't wait to see MFT's response to Vader!

We have the sing-along with the sirens every Wednesday. But our special place is downstairs but it's a big room so we can still do zoomies!

Ransom said...

We don't have a basement...and the only room without windows in the bathroom that has the bathtub in it.

Who is MFT?

(Don't let Vader's looks fool you...he doesn't have much in the way of brains. I am shocked he was able to put together such a cohesive comment. Most of the time he just grunts and lets his tongue out of the side of his mouth. He is ALMOST as lazy at that thick-skulled Newfie I live with. You can ask Gabs. Intellectually, Gabs and I run circles around that Neanderthal. But, we still love him...he is our brother, after all.

But, like I was sayin' don't go all weak in the knees and start slobbering over his picture...he's all fur and no brains.)

Ransom said...

(he does have one good point, though...he is easily LED! Just ask Gabs! She takes advantage of him all the time!!!)

Joey said...

Hi Ransom! MFT stands for Miss Fluffy Tail herself, the magnificent Khyra. Glad you're inside nice and cozy.

See ya!

So glad your spokesperson is watching out for you.... it's NO FUN being left behind in a storm...

Love, Beulah

Ransom said...

Hah! You think she was LOOKING OUT FOR ME?! I tell you what she was doing...she was TOYING with me!...faking me out...getting my hopes all up that we were going on a car ride, just to LEAVE me there and forget all about me...

That Spokeswoman of mine may have YOU fooled, Beulah, but she doesn't have ME fooled for one nanosecond!
