Sir Poops and Hair Ball: Dog Eat, Dog World

IMG_0194SPAL: Hi, nice people. Hope everyone is having a great week. Everything is great when my tummy’s getting rubbed.

HB: Yeah. Life is great when there’s plenty of nosh and belly rubs and the back of a sofa to lay on.IMG_0193

SPAL: The last time we posted, someone left us a compliment.

HB: Yeah. But didn’t she refer to us as dogs.

SPAL: She did. But it was a nice compliment.

HB: Wasn’t it Joyce Lansky over at Catch My Words?

SPAL: Yeah. She can’t understand why we feel dog is a bad word.

HB: Well, why do we?

SPAL: There’s a quote people like to say: It’s a dog eat, dog world.

HB: So.

SPAL: It doesn’t sound nice. According to Mummsy it’s the two-legged peeps that practice this in business.

HB: Then how come peeps don’t say: It’s a two-legged eat, two-legged world.

SPAL: Because according to Mummsy, most two-legged peeps don’t like to take responsibility for their negative ways.

HB: Oh.

SPAL: The two-legged peeps would be so much happier if they were like us fur-peeps who just want to love and be loved.

HB: Yeah.

SPAL: Here’s a quote for everyone to remember. “Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.” Groucho Marx

HB: We’re like books? ***scratches his head***

SPAL: I guess. If you think about it, Mummsy usually has a book, or one of us in her lap or her lap desk to work on her MS.

HB: Yeah. She does.***rolls over onto his back*** Hey! Isn’t this the last week Daddy-O has chemo.

SPAL: Thank God, yes.

HB: And didn’t Mummsy’s novel, Secondhand Shoes, get chosen to be in the The eFestival of Words Nomination Awards?

SPAL: Yes. It did. Peeps can click this link to go see.

HB: And isn’t Mummsy getting ready to release two of her short stories?

SPAL: Yup. The Partner’s Progeny and Samah Ronit. The cover is almost tweaked for one. She’ll be doing a cover reveal soon.

HB: What about Mummy’s next novel, Killer Stilettos?

SPAL: It should be completely drafted by June 1st.

HB: I’m so excited. ***he rolls over and gets on all fours***

SPAL: Just make sure you don’t whiz on me. Anyway, nice people remember to get you bellies rubbed and to love everybody.

HB: Yeah.

Lots of licks,

Sir Poops and Hair Ball

  1. Guys, there's no shame in being a dog. Dogs are better than people. Dogs don't kill just because they think it's fun. They're not two-faced or dishonest. They don't care who you are or what you possess.

    Be proud to be a dog. Dogs rock!

  4. Dog is like people as either word can be used in a good or a bad way. The Groucho Marx quote is the best. Loved his humor! Glad to see you back!

  11. Dog is a good word. And Groucho is one of the great intellects of the 20th century. Just the kind of guy we should all listen to.
