Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy and Lucy at Home

Twiggy and Lucy

“Hey, Twiggy. Come see the new rug.”

“I’m busy now.”

“What are you doing?”

“Dad left the dishwasher open, and I’m checking it out. Be right there.”

“Okay. I’m here. Where are you?”

“Over at the dishwasher looking for you.”

“Man, you are a hard one to keep on the radar.”

“Been here the whole time.”

Twiggy and Lucy

“Yeah, sure, Little potato. I call this move my step over bodyΒ pin.”

“Not hard to pin a little guy, Lucy. Let me up, and I’ll show you something.”

Twiggy and Lucy

“What’s that called?”

“Stealth stalking. The pantherΒ lays in wait for its prey.”

“Then pounces on the unsuspecting big ox.”

“Hey. Who you calling a big ox?”

“It’s just a game, Lucy.”

“Of course it is. Had you fooled.”

“Are you coming back?”

“After I graze the pasture Little One.”

“Brother.”

  6. I laughed at that basket of toys. In the midst of all that gray and white, it’s almost the most colorful thing in the room, but not quite: that pair of pups you have are much more colorful, despite their white coats.

    1. What you didn’t see are the toys strewn all over the floor as well. Thanks, Linda. 😊

  8. Dogs are rarely bored; they always find something to explore.
    Of course, they only have to kill a few hours when they sleep for most of the day…

  11. Still chuckling! Now, I’ve got a new way of saying, I gotta take a ‘leak’! “Excuse me, folks, but I must go graze the pasture!” Beautiful! β™₯
