Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy Needs Entertainment.

“Hey, Lucy. Do you want to play with Eel?

“Gee, I was just getting ready for a nap.”

“Yeah, but look how much fun we can have.”

“Call the boss; maybe he’ll play with you.”

“Ah, Dad. Let’s do the tug-o-war.”

“Sure, Anything you want.”

“That’s the ticket. Now drag me.”

“You sure your teeth can stand it.”

“Hey, Lucy. Look at me. Being dragged.”

“Let me just imagine it, Little one.”

“I’m coming back by you. Want to play too.”

“Goodness. What part of nap didn’t you get?”

“Okay then. I let go.”

“Sure your teeth are okay?”

“They are fine. Why do you ask?”

“Well, being hauled around with your whole weight on them.”

“You calling me fat?”

“No, I’m not. Just concerned about your teeth. Now remove yourself from my face.”

“I think she was calling me fat.”

“Was not.”

“What do you think?”

“Who are you talking to? The boss left.”

“My friends, Lucy. My friends.”

  3. Never a dull minute with these two, though I think Lucy may have taken the term โ€˜power napโ€™ to new heights. Youโ€™d have to work hard to ignore Twiggy. ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. My Lola does a wonderful job โ€˜stonewallingโ€™ her big goofy Lab brother Beau, too. She has a certain โ€œDonโ€™t even think about it,โ€ gaze she casts that usually stops him dead in his tracks. 11.5 lbs. conquers 75 lbsโ€ฆa dynamic illustration of mind over matter. ๐Ÿคฃ

      2. That is not surprising. Twiggy tries the Alpha move but one Lucy paw and it ends quickly. Thaks for sharing, Lori.

  9. Always amazed at the strength of a dogโ€™s teeth. The tug-o-war with their teeth seems so violent at times.

  15. I would say, no, but you are aligned with the striped carpet and that makes you appear thin. Donโ€™t go horizontal because horizontal lines make you appear, eh, eh, bigger. Thatโ€™s why I never wear a shirt with a circular design. Youโ€™re welcome!

    I think Twiggy is up to the task of tug-o-war and being dragged around.
