Push my buttons!

Today I have been playing a game called "Pushing Your Buttons." My ma ape tells us that periodically. "You're pushing my buttons!" It's a great game. Today I played by:
  1. Shouting at her when she didn't get us on our walk by 4:15 a.m. This dog's got a schedule to keep.
  2. Shouting at her when she got home because she was working and not rubbing my belly.
  3. When shouting failed, crawling onto her and then onto the computer. I wrote many indispensable lines for her paper. Also made the caps lock key stuck so she almost had to write the rest of it in ETHEL VOICE.
  4. Refusing to come inside when the ma ape called me so she had to come outside in her sweaty damp workout clothes and she got frostbitten brain.
  5. Stealing sissy's jolly bally that was all dirty and thwacking the ma ape in the leg leaving a big round mud spot on her pants.

And yet.

We had a heartable dinner.




And I spied a bag from the pet store jammed with foodstuffs. And I heard word of something called "A monkey stick." Hmmm.


Birthday weeks RULE!

I think she's going to hit you with the monkey stick.
If it makes you feel any better, I ate my poo and then barfed it up on the floor today.

You are much more playful than me. Perhaps I should play too. But it sounds so tiring.

Yahoo! Playing with humans is too much fun. Sometimes I howl at the back door like I want to come in and when momma opens the door I just stand there and stare at her and all the warm house air runs out and she calls me bad names and closes the door and then I howl again! Too much fun!

Gads and double gads:
you did all that in one day. When did you sleep? I think ETHEL is sleep deprived. That is why her eyes look crazed. Maybe she is in a constant manic state. Happy Birthday.
