Hi! Mom finally left the computer long enough so I can update everyone on the Monkeypoo in my house. Look at her favorite toy and tell me she’s not related to Monkeybutt:
And… take note on what she did to it… she made it a tripawd! (that’s the tail – not a leg). And… the leg she removed was the right rear leg – same as me. Do you think she did that because she loves me? Or what??? Anyway the monkey toy screeches whenever someone throws it, or when Zuzu drops it so I really don’t like it much – way too noisy. I prefer my squeak toys which are much more pleasant sounding. OK… and just to be sure no one thinks she’s favoring rear leg tripawds, look what she did to her bear:
Another tripawd toy. Coincidence? I think not!!! AMBF agents please report to duty ASAP!!! I’m sending out an APB!! Or whatever I need to send out!!
Mom will tell you that we’re getting along great, but when her back is turned you should see the stuff Monkeypoo tries! I think I need some AMBF reinforcements here please! Just look at her… she’s like twice my size now!!!
Anwyay, other than living with a Monkeypoo life is pretty good for me. I love it when Mom takes me for a walk, which is most days. And I’ve been busy on squirrel patrol lately – they have suddenly invaded my yard again! I guess that’s one thing Monkeypoo is good for – she helps me chase the squirrels away. Between the two of us we can clear the yard much faster than I could on my own. And I get plenty of treats cuz Mom’s still trying to train her – so no complaints about that either.
Everyone’s been wondering how Barney survived his jump into the river in Pontiac, IL while visiting Ginger… Well, Zuzu and I were walking along one day and look who jumped out at us…
Ginger sent along a box of Barney’s belongings for his stay with us. She included some yummy pupcorn that we ate while we watched the Barney video.
Zuzu was trying to fool Barney by sharing her pupcorn with him. I said “No way! I’m not sharing with that purple dinosaur!”.
Mom said we were really obsessed with Barney’s feet. We kept telling her they smell like fritos! We’re thinking Barney picked that up when he was in Alaska visiting Opie. We know Opie was here with us as we tried to finish Barney off!
Zuzu became obsessed with Barney. She tried to finish up what Ginger started by chewing on his eyes.
Being the more mature, older woman… I was more covert. I didn’t do external damage – oh no! – I did what terriers do best. I shook him to within an inch of his life. Barney’s brains are now officially scrambled. But Zuzu and I were not able to wipe that silly grin off his face. But know this, fellow tripawds…. there is nothing behind that grin because Barney’s brains are mush after his visit with me!!!
We did our best to lose him in a maze at the local Arboretum. We’ve decided he must be part cat – he definitely has at least 9 lives…
Help! Can anyone hear me?
He emerged in some sculpture…
I had to give him one last shaking before he leaves… and mom made me take a “nice” photo – yuck!! (notice the mittens – they will help to keep him constrained. He kinda looks like FrankenBarney now).
Now we’re all wondering where Barney will end up next???
