Hi everyone! We wanted to remind you, first of all, that there is still a giveaway for a dog toy going on until Monday at 5 pm. Don't forget to sign up!
So... today is National Answer Your Cat's Questions Day! It really is! We didn't believe it either, at first. But it is a real holiday. So, today, the dogs among us decided we would answer all of Sammy-Joe's questions! Sammy-Joe, do you have any questions?
Sammy-Joe: Yes, lots of questions, actually. Here is one. Why do we need all of these dogs?
Trixie: Thats not nice. Besides, you had a dog before us, didn't you?
Sammy-Joe: Yes. I had Chopper. But she was here before me. Besides, she was my friend. When she went to the Rainbow Bridge, I thought I was going to have some seniority around here. But noooo. You dogs had to come!
Trixie: Thats not even a question, Sammy-Joe!
Sammy-Joe. Fine. Here's a question. Why do you eat my poop?
Trixie: I don't do that anymore! That was when I was a young pup. I don't know why. I kinda got in the habit of eating poop when I had my puppies. I had to lick their butts to keep them clean!
Trixie: Well, how else was I supposed to keep them clean? Dogs like to clean up after themselves. Also, cats don't completely digest their food all that well. So, your poop tastes a lot like your cat food... which is pretty tasty!
Sammy-Joe: I cannot look at you ever again.
Trixie: I said I don't do it anymore! That was years ago! Why don't you ask Lily a question?
Sammy-Joe: Okay. Lily, why do you bark so much? You are the littlest dog I ever met, but you are so loud!
Lily: I know! Its my way of protecting the family! I don't have much of a bite, but I have a BIG BARK!
Sammy-Joe: Why do you bark at the vacuum cleaner? Are you protecting the family from that?
Lily: Yes! That thing is dangerous! It could suck us all up!
Sammy-Joe: Uh-huh. I see. Where do you dogs go when you leave the house a million times a day?
Trixie: Just in the yard, usually. Or around the block. Why don't you come with?
Sammy-Joe: Too cold for me! Besides, those noisy dogs next door make me nervous.
Trixie: Do you have any other questions?
Sammy-Joe: Lily, why do you sneak into my fort?
Lily: It has a little door. I am a little dog. The door is just my size! And there is delicious cat food in there!
Sammy-Joe: That is my food! I am a cat! Can't you read the sign that says NO DOGS ALLOWED?
Lily: Oh, thats what it says! I thought it said LILY.
Trixie: Any more questions?
Sammy-Joe: I guess not.
Trixie: I have a question for you. Why don't you come out and hang out with us more?
Sammy-Joe: I would, but Lily always barks at me!
Trixie: Just ignore her! You're bigger than her!
Sammy-Joe: Well, maybe someday. This is getting boring. I'm going to go look at my catnip mouse for a while. Bye!
Trixie: Hmm. That was weird. What do you wanna do now?
Lily: Want to jump around on the carpet and try to bite each other?
Trixie: Sure, lets go! Bye, everyone!
