Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! Lately, we have been thinking about our lives and what makes them so great. We wish all dogs had it as good as we do. We each have a ginormous bed to sleep in. Even though I, Poppy, am the smaller dog, I have staked my claim on the largest bed. Penny doesn't seem to mind, though. She says it's more cozy for her to curl up in the smaller bed. We both get 2 full meals everyday and lots of treats in between. Everytime one of our pawrents eats, we eat too. We even have our own forks...I guess Mom and Dad got tired of almost losing their fingers!
Penny talks to Dad all the time! She tells him when she wants water, when she wants petted and when she wants to go outside. Mom can't always read her signals, but Dad never gets it wrong! They communicate very well...I guess that's why Penny is Dad's dog and I am Mom's dog. I always tell Mom when I want lovin's or when I want a piece of ice to chew up. Now, there is one time when we switch hoomans! Every evening, Dad eats a snack in the kitchen and Mom eats her snack in the living room. I, Poppy eat my snack with Dad and Penny always eats her snack with Mom. They can't figure out why we do that and we aren't telling!
We had thunder storms, last night and Penny was a nervous wreck! She tried to climb under an end table and then she tried to go behind Mom's Lazy Boy chair. There isn't enough room for her in either place, but that doesn't stop her from trying! Dad finally opened the basement door and she went flying down the stairs. Our pawrents think she is probably the smartest one in the house. The TV always says to go to the basement during a storm so, we guess, Penny must be listening to them. It is still raining, this morning, and it's supposed to rain all day. There will be no zoomies in the back yard for us, today! In fact, we don't want to go outside at all!
