brilliant play scheme

OK everydog this is the greatest story ever! And guess who it involves? I'll give you two hints:

If you guessed my NIECE and NEPHEW you are RIGHT! Listen to this one!

Today Leah (who is staying with me for this week) had to run over to her apartment. While she was there she took Fig and Tad outside so they could pee and poo and bark at our new boxer puppy neighbor. Anyway, when she was ready to leave and come back to see me she put them in their crates and gave them treats and guess what Fig did? BARKED REALLY LOUD! Now mind you, this is something neither of them never ever do! But Fig was so mad at her for not letting her come see ME! So Leah let them out a little longer, figuring Fig just wanted to stay out of her crate and get more exercise. So after a bit she put them back and started to leave and guess what? Fig barked even LOUDER! And then Tad started his shrieky-howl-thing he does (which the neighbors used to complain about and which gets him in big-time trouble!). But she IGNORED them because she thought the first time she just rewarded them for their barking by letting them out. Since Tad was shrieking, though, she stood outside and waited to see if they stopped. But they got LOUDER!!!! HAHAHAHAHA! She couldn’t just leave them there and risk having people call and complain and maybe get fined, so guess who spent the afternoon with me?!?!?!???!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA WOOOOOO HOOOOOO! Leah wasn’t very happy but WE WERE! They are soooooooo smart! Aren’t they the best?!

I always knew that Fig was the smartest and bestest and coolest dog in the whole world, but Tad is starting to come around, even if he does eat his own poo.

I had such a fun time but I got so tired because I usually sleep all afternoon. In fact, after they left I had dinner, then ate dessert (a celery-bone),

licked my paws,

and then around 6pm I was zonked out for the entire night!

Let's do it again!!!

Fig RULES, and I am sure she convinced Tad to behave like that. Us Bostons are so clever!

Figgles is one stinkin' sly pupgirl, and props to Tad for following her lead!

That last photo of you is priceless, girl! You look so strung out. LOVE it.

Just how loud is Tad's shrieking howling thing?

Goober love & smooches,

Moco said...

How clever are they? We are thinking they are plenty clever. They should come over and play with you every day. What else would you do on a vacation?

Kelli said...

Fig and Tad are so clever! I bet they missed you, who wouldn't!

Good job Petra!! We gotta try that some time... maybe then Mom and Dad will let us go have play dates instead of sit at home in our crates alone!!!
