Let me tell you the story of an escape so great that humans were left tired and annoyed.
Hi Soph here, I am a fairly clever hound if I do say so myself.
Just the other night, in the dead of night, not a peep could be heard- well except for my human dad’s snoring. Everyone was sound asleep. But man oh man did I have to pee!
I figured I would just let myself out, no one would notice. I stuck my paw out and lifted up, oh sweet success. Poking my head out and looking around I was on my way to getting out for a pee! Slowly and quitly I snuck up on the door in the darkness.
Upon reaching the door I realise, how the heckle jeckle am I going to get outside?! Well I guess I’ll have to just summon the human with my wonderful potty bell, oh wont they be so surprised to her that!
Tired and groggy my human dad stumbles out of their cave and towards me. He was pretty shocked to see me ringing the potty bell. With a chuckle lets me out and then back into my my little cave or “house” as the humans call it. All peed out, and snug as a bug in a rug, I sleep soundly through the rest of night.
HIIIII SOPHEE HERE!
I got bored in my crate, so I thought I would surprise the humans with my beautiful artwork.. they weren’t too please with me. My mom human said “Well at least I’m refinishing this in the spring”, what ever that means.
I worked SO hard on it human! I spent hours here and there sneakily nibbleing away, ugh I can’t believe they didn’t like it, like I just can’t belive it! Well maybe I’ll just have to make it more of a bang next time, who knows these humans don’t understand my genious I suppose.
Anyways I’ll let you guys be the judge, Check out the picture I linked and see if you understand the beauty in my work. My humans have no taste in my art.
One angry Soph!
Oh hai Bently here! I just love when visitors come over to see me, however I go through a few stages before I can calm down and relax.
First I MUST alert the humans! It’s an intruder! Bark bark bark, Pure panic and anxiety kicks me into high gear, bark bark bark.
Then I absolutely must jump all over them, hiya! take that! Normally by this point I recognize their scent making me so excited to see them, OH WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN! ITS BEEN DOG YEARS! Still of course I must jump all over them to show my excitement, even the occasional bark, just to say I love you.
Then and only then I will find the closest toy.. sometimes it may even be a mitten or a hat, to bring to the visitor; not as a gift but just to show them all of my bark-tastic stuff of course. I prefer not to share if I don’t have to.
When the visitor finally is able to sit down through the chaos I’ve created with my jumping, barking, and excited energy; I’ll give them a few last kisses and then lay down for a nap phewwf, I’m pooped!
Greetings have gotten me even MORE excited since Soph joined the family! She’s just so curious about every barking thing I do! The difference, for some reason, When the human says no to jumping; get this, she actually STOPS jumping. Just wagging her tail like its some kind of weapon; oh the tail! That’ll be story for another time, Oh that pesky tail, always getting me in the face!
The humans have grown to love my stages with visitors, but seeing Soph’s way of greeting has shown me a new perspective. I wonder how other dogs in other homes greet the visitors to their pack. Leave a comment below, tell us you pawesome way of greeting in your pack! We love hearing from you!
So Last summer the human came up with this great idea, as we are royalty house cats, and have “no street smarts”, as the humans would say. No clue as to what that means, but regardless we wanted to be outside to sun tan on beautiful Canadian summer days, watching the birds and the squirrels as they scurry about.
The mom human did some “research” as she called it, coming of up a design for the creation she called a “catio”. I wasn’t so keen on the idea, as it involved building, which in turn would make noise, horrible racket, and the mess, oh my catgod.
But she didnt listen to me, to be honest I’m glad she didn’t because I abosolutly love it- don’t tell her I told you though, I like to keep her on her toes.
The catio an inclosed area outside, with scratchers, and shelves; to climb sleep and observe. What a fantastic idea, it keeps us safe but allows us the freedom to be outside- she even added a little cat door through the kitchen window, so we could come and go as we please! Because you know us cats, we can never decide if we want in or out.
Check it out, let us know what you think, and if you have something similar we would love to hear about it or even see a picture!
