Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy and Twiggy at Play

“How about a game of Whale?”

“We played that already today.”

A Little Personal

“Aw, gee. I thought you liked whale.”

“I do it’s just we should play something else.”

A little Personal

“Dad. Lucy won’t play whale with me.”

“Go get another toy, then.”

A Little Personal

“Okay then, I’ll get popcorn.”

“Gad. We played with popcorn yesterday for like twelve hours.”

A Little Personal

“Okay, here’s a popcorn ball. I’ll throw it,Β and you go get it.”

“How about I throw it,Β and you go get it?”

A Little Personal

“Now, wait a minute. I’m the one inventing this game.”

“Yeah, and I’m the one who keeps getting worn out.”

A little personal

“Okay. Last chance. Fetch the popcorn ball or suffer the consequences.”

“I’ll take the consequences for a thousand, Alex.”

A Little personal

“Okay, the first is a straddle.”

“Still not going to chase the popcorn ball.”

“Next is a layover Dutch rub.”

“Nope.”

“The final is the super insulting head sit.”

“Now, you’ve done it.”

“Oh, I like it. The water buffalo tries to gore the puma.”

“Or the lion is about to consume the lamb for lunch.”

“But the puma strikes back, and the buffalo goes down.”

“Where she stays for the afternoon.”

A Little personal

“Okay. You throw the popcorn ball and I’ll fetch it.”

“The buffalo licks her wounds, and then tells the puma, ‘Give me five.”‘

    Our furry friends provide much-needed distraction and delight, don’t they? And, for some of us, they allow our imaginations to travel the world. Great job, John. πŸ˜€

  4. Oh, this is hilarious! What little Twiggy won’t do to get her way. When I saw the title of your post, I wondered if the puma would be making an appearance!

      4. In the summer. We call it Gotcha Day cause since she is a rescue we don’t know her actual birthday.

  9. I always enjoy seeing these two tussle. It’s easy to see Twiggy as the hyper-active toddler, but how old is she now? I can’t remember. Is this going to be her adult size? These days I sometimes don’t know what month it is, let alone what day, so it’s hard to remember how long you’ve had her.

    1. Twiggy had her two year birthday on Feburary 10th. This is her adult size. She does look like a kid compared to Lucy but she is all grown-up and still acts like a puppy. Thanks, Linda.

  14. Aha, even the pups are getting bored with this pandemic, aren’t they, John? You can always tell, when one starts picking at the other and goading them to action! Hang in there, all of you, and let’s all hope this thing doesn’t drag on much longer.
