My life - Pre and post The Incident

By Pocket:

Before the incident I would arise each morning, go outside to do my business, do a tad more inside behind a recliner or on the linoleum where it would await a thinly socked foot, and sit down over a bowl of kibble to check out the latest issue of the Puppy Weekly Digest. I‘d then go on the computer to share morning thoughts with the lovely Zoe Boe. I’d check with Wishbone to see how the chick-chick business was doing. I’d learn about how to bling out my page from Erin. I’d learn how to act like a big dog from Moses, Barge and Daisy; and play like a newborn from Matilda. I’d check on my sick friends Tanner and Casper and say a little prayer for them. I’d get my words of wisdom from Teddie Earnest. I’d learn about foreign lands from Luca and Junior. I’d laugh with Blazer, Mollie and Bentley. I’d say my prayers with Shadow. Then I’d find a warm place and lie in the sun.

Then came the incident: The DS war, and Foley and I were on the front lines, fighting for what we believed was right, and we were suspended, diluted, deleted, slandered, libeled, wasted, wounded, defiled, deflated, brutalized and sent to the hinterlands in punishment for our role in the uprising.

And now my life is so very different: I arise each morning, go outside do my business, do a tad more inside behind a recliner or on the hardwood floor to keep them guessing and sit down over a bowl of kibble and check out the latest issue of the Puppy Weekly Digest. I then go on the computer to share morning thoughts with the lovely Zoe Boe. I check with Wishbone to see how the chick-chick business is doing. I learn about how to bling out my page from Erin. I learn how to act like a big dog from Moses, Barge and Daisy; and play like a newborn from Matilda. I check on my sick friends Tanner and Casper and say a little prayer for them. I get my words of wisdom from Teddie Earnest. I learn about foreign lands from Luca and Junior. I laugh with Blazer, Mollie and Bentley. I say my prayers with Shadow. Then I find a warm place and lie in the sun.

You see, all that drama, it was caused by humans. Humans are funny. They get upset, they shake their stubby little fists towards the sky, they fart and curse. Next thing you know we don’t have our friends any more, and then a couple of days later, we do again. The place where we meet is a little different, but the friends are the same, and that’s all that matters. That whole conflagration they started was a bunch of sound and fury signifying nothing.

We’re dogs, we’re part of nature, and everything that happened boils down to that age-old question of nature vs. numb nuts. We’re loyal, to you, and to one another, and no matter how many sites we are barred from, how many crash, are deleted, or even when we pass to the bridge, we will find one another, because we are friends, now and forever.

Can’t wait for the morning when I can catch up with all my friends again, and see what new ones appear.

  1. Very well said, the friendship and loyalty of dogs and cats can't be torn assunder by a control freak illiterate human. You just bark to the left instead of barking to the right. Besides that Foley, you let momsie make some human friends with your lefty barks. When you started brking to the left, your voice got louder and it was heard in places you never ventured before. Life is good.

  3. Perfect. Too bad those sloped nose types don't watch how we act a bit more. If they did, the world would be a better place. But, I bet our buddies Foley & Pocket will try and teach them. It won't be easy, but they are up to the task.

  4. I hope some of you take the time to read Erin's blog listed at the top on the right side of the page. Thanks Erin. I could never understand why Chase's journals were never posted and why I would receive gifts I never had the option to send myself even tho I did buy some credits at one time. The site comes with no instructions at all and none of us even knew where to read rules and regs until the s..t hit the fan and Levi posted a journal telling us where to find them.

  5. I agree with Erin completely. These are all some of the reasons I left a couple of days ago.

  7. Well said Pocket!! It doesn't matter where we meet...it matters that we still have each other to bark at!! and the girls have found peeing under a coffee table as very beneficial..It doesn't find a socked foot but smells after time!!
