Mama Is A Lot Of Work

Hi everyone! its me, tiny little Lily, back to tell you more stuff!

I've been working really hard lately. Really, really hard!

See, Mama hasn't had any work or school lately. So she's always sitting around, doing things, like watching TV, using the computer. Stuff like that. If she just sits around all the time, she's gonna have health problems! My job is to make her do some exercise!

Here's what I do. I hide my ball under the couch, and whine at her until she gets down on the ground and gets it. Then she stands up. I repeat. Lay down.. Stand up. Down. Up. Down. Up. Good work, Mama! Feel the burn!

To make things more challenging, sometimes I roll two of my balls under the couch! Then, when she gets one, I whine at her that it is the wrong one! Down, Mama! Up! Down! Up!

If I want to get Mama moving even more, I run into the other room and bark at the cat. Mama jumps up and chases me, yelling, "Bad Lily! Leave the kitty alone!" Good Mama! Run, Mama, run!

I make sure to pepper this exercise with lots of trips outside. Lets go out, Mama! 'Round the block! Left-right-left-right! Hup two three four! Good Mama!

I know. It is a lot of work. But it is worth it. Because...

Mama shares her treats with me!
(And don't worry. I share with Trixie too.)

Have a good day, friends! I love you all!

I came to say thanks for the great comment you left me. You are so right about having a pet keeping you healthier and happier. I think I'll write a new post about that soon.

Reading your post here made me smile. Aschiuta is the same. She keeps bringing us toys to play with her. And her ball always ends up under the nightstand.

It's like our dogs have a lot of energy and they sometimes want to say "what, out of breath already? come on, we're just getting started!"

Wow - makes me glad I have cats. I could use the execise, but that sounds like a lot of work. LOL I am glad the crew is just as happy to stay inside and curl up on my lap.

dear tiny little lily,

that is very kind of you to help exercise your human. i am taking notes. my typist popped the zipper on her shorts last week. thank goodness it wasn't in public, that would have been so embarrassing. i think it's A Sign that she needs to learn how to fetch balls too.

have a great weekend :) xox

That's a great thing to keep your mom busy! I try to do that with mine...otherwise she would just be sitting in the chair all of the time! Lots of love, Holly and mom

I agree, you've got to keep these humans on their toes, it's for their own good!!

If I think mum's spent too long at the computer, I jump on the sofa, she has to get up to get me off, just as she sits down I jump on another sofa, you can see the pattern here? I can keep going for ages......luckily for her.....:)

Your pal Snoopy :)

BOL! Yes, I have to keep my mama in line, too! Forcing her out of bed in the morning, making her shovel the snow so I have a nice path to my favorite spot, etc. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

Your pal, Pip
