Mom is giving me a few days time out from the computer because of my blogging these last few days about her being a bad cook (I tried to tell her I just report the facts but that only got me in further dodo..plus the burnt hot dogs only proves my point) anyway...last night mom and i had a "mom to pug" heart to heart talk. As a result of the talk I am now on time out until Monday.
Here is our conversation:
Mom: Stella have you or your siblings ever went hungry in this house?
Good Me: No of course not dearest mommie.
BAD ME: Well hungry for real food and not that dry food you give us.
Mom: Stellie, Dad and I love you guys alot, we take the best care of you we can. You go to the Vet when you need to, you get exercise and sunshine, we spend as much time with you as we can, you get treats, we would never trade you for anything, we are your forever home!!
Good Me: I know Mom, I love you and dad alot too!
BAD ME: Lets back this train up Mom, first of all I never ever ask to go to the Vet because there usually is always pain involved, second you put us in Alcatraz where we cannot run freely all over the neighborhood, we also have to share you with grandkids, and mean ole cat Dietzman, and as far as treats we have only ever tried one kind of bully treats..you have no imagination!
Mom: I know I don't cook alot of food for you, but you get fruits and vegetables and sometimes I cook you chicken. You know Dad always brings you home something from the restaurant when he can. You probably get more fresh fruit than any pug I know.
Good Me: I know Mom we are so lucky you buy us fresh fruits and veggies to eat. I love you so much!
BAD ME: Once again you are living in a pretend world mom from the rest of us. You often forget to buy us our frozen green beans and we have to eat ones from the can..can you say HIGH IN SALT....and I have to scream at you while you are cutting our apples just in case you forget to give me more!! Yes, Dad does bring us little scrumptious treats from his work...I will go along with that..usually though I get in trouble for being food aggressive when I think he is going to share that donut with anyone but me!
Our conversation ended with Mom telling me that we could do a contest..Yippee..Yippee..BUT the treats or food mailed to us would be sent on to SERPA...a pug rescue in Missouri. She is sure the foster homes and puggies would appreciate a little treat. The winner of the contest will be the one with the strangest treat that we receive...it could be a homemade treat from weird ingredients, or a boughten treat that is strange. Mom will keep a list of the senders and put their names in the box. We will send the winner a little box of prizes. (Do you see something wrong with this picture) We are going to start the contest on Monday and end it on September 29th. Mom said you can email her at simpson_long @yahoo.com to get our address.
Good Me: I can hardly wait to send these special treats to pugs waiting for their forever homes.
BAD ME: WHAT I don't get to keep any of the treats for myself....what!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just what kind of lesson are you trying to teach me.
