Francis Cash #7

Francis : So uh, did you have to work yesterday?

Ethan: What kind of stupid question is that?

Francis: I don’t know your schedule!

Ethan: ….

Francis: I know this, I have got to start going to bed earlierz. This staying up till 11pm is not working out so well. I look at the clock and hair balls, it’s 354ams !

I haven’t dried my collar, who’s fault is that!

I’m going to be late to start my olympics!

Ethan: is this the part where you, jump from every corner of the bed….flash from every room….back flip from the window seal? And then sit on my phone so I can’t hear my alarm go off, and cover my nose with your paws so I can’t breathe and wake up?

Francis: well, I mean, if you want to get down to the play by play.

Ethan: …

Francis: yes.

Ethan: I feel like I’m getting threatened, should I call someone?

Francis: Look at this dirt…disgusting… good thing I’m all clean now.

Beagle in the City #2

  Hello,person!

It’s national Adopt a Shelter Pet Month.

I know I’m a little guy. 

But I was a shelter pet.

Left in a ditch. 

I love my new pack family

And hunting stuffed Giraffes 

So thanks!

for all you do when you adopt a pet.

And remember the seniors like Lester! They are great feet warmers and love just as much as us little guys. 

  (Learn more about adopting)

Lester has been with the shelter for 6 years! (That’s like …six and a half of my entire lives) 

So remember…

“Adopt don’t shop!”

cats and dogs

  
A long time ago…in a galaxy far far away…

Wait,that’s not the right beginning…at least this time,anyway. 

 We adopted a dog.  A canine. A ferocious beast.  

 A beagle mix. Simon. 

I was nervous but only in the beginning. Now it’s day three or five and I am good. 

But it’s because  I’ve always been a cat person. And cats are different than dogs. Mostly,because if you have a dog. You are a “dog owner.” If you have a cat…somewhere out in the animal kingdom…your cat is saying; “Well,I just got a person.It took me a few months…but I decided to commit.” 

You don’t own a cat… The cat does whatever it wants. You get affection and attention on its terms. Not yours. You don’t train a cat. The cat trains you. You put food out-maybe it eats it.It depends on what mood it’s in. 

But a dog. 

A dog is completely different. A dog is like a child. You have to take it out. You have to train it. You have to be consistent. A dog is like family.You have a foster family,you have to be approved. You have to spay and neuter. 

But 

Seriously. I never realized how many animals go into these shelters. It’s ridiculous. Some have almost a thousand a month. Spay and neuter your pets.And if you don’t have a pet but want one? adopt.

Simon is great. He takes his baths.Then digs up cat poop,takes some more baths.Runs himself to death. Sleeps on the sofa and in the bed. I tried to be more firm on the bed thing. But …. 

 
He doesn’t beg for anything. and he’s so smart. I couldn’t say no. 

So yeah. We have a dog. Simon. 

He sits. He understands “No” well,almost. He is just really fond of  L’s scrunchies and shoes….
