Festivus Friday

My last Friday before the new year?! Apparently SOMEBODY thinks it would be poor form for me to start out 2017 with complaints next week. She thinks I should try harder to find the good or some such nonsense. Hopefully I did not miss the Festivus window and have time for one last grievance? (Make no mistake, I have several grievances, but dictation is exhausting.)

Some of you may already been privy to this incident, as there was a facebook post the night it happened (clearly not a Friday, so I was not allowed to post here). It was a chilly evening for most folks, so the girl child put a fleece on me. I grumbled at her when she tried to fasten the velcro waistband, and she took the hint for a change and backed away.

The two elder humans came home, and were immediately puzzled by my lack of enthusiasm to see them. I just kept pleading with my eyes waiting for someone to get a clue. See that flap...
...the one laying on the carpet? That, my friends, is a super industrial strength velcro flap and it was stuck to the carpet! Those hundreds of mighty loops had my fourteen pounds of brawn seriously outnumbered. I keep telling you that no good can come from making me wear clothes!

May your New Year's Eve be filled with love, laughter and delicious snacks! (Oh my gosh, I hope there are good snacks)


  1. Aw! Poor little dude!!! I don't blame you for bringing out the Festivus pole, For. I hope you have a happy 2017, Sweetie!
