Act Like A Dog

Hi everyone, Katie here.

I'm sure you thought I was lying dead in a ditch. Well, not to worry. I'm alive and well and holed up in the townhouse watching the snow fall. A blizzard is on it's way. I'm all stocked up with kibble and litter. Toys scattered about. Pillows and blankets all furred up. So I'm good.

Glogirly on the other hand is down to a can of mushroom soup and coke zero.

She's been "busy" with her "new" job. New, schmew. She started the new gig in early December. Hasn't blogged for me since Thanksgiving and it's now the eve of President's day for crying out loud.

As she's been immersing herself in the new job, I've had to practically throw myself at Gloman. Fortunately he is easy to train. All I have to do is act like a dog. I know, humiliating isn't it? But I can get anything I want.

He's been responding particularly well to my play-signals:
  1. I grab my favorite toy in my mouth.
  2. I trot down the steps to wherever he is.
  3. I drop my toy at his feet.
  4. Best to make a bunch of noise in case he's not paying attention.
  5. I sit.
  6. I look at him.
  7. Actually I stare at him.

Works every time.


  1. Yay! Knew we shouldn't take you off our Google Reader! We hoped upon hope you'd return (just like a good toy!)

  2. WELL DONE! Happy that you are back in business (for now at least) and that training the Gloman is going well! =^^=
    PS - you are always welcome to take a trip to NYC and stay with me and the kitties (not sure how you'd like it though...2 boys and a girl!)

  3. We're so happy to see you! Good job training the Gloman!!

  7. We wondered what had happened to you Katie. Glad to see you back. Good work on getting Gloman trained.

  8. Hi, Katie! Sounds like thank G-d for Gloman, even if you do have to act like a dog.

  9. Geez Katie, that's terrible that your human is so busy with dumb work stuff and you have to lower yourself to dog level to get attention from your male human. Do you need to be rescued?

  10. You need to start demanding more attention from your oooman. Now you is pretty smart if you carry a toy downstairs and set down by your Dad's feet. How can he help but not play with you.

  11. What has the world come to when you have to act like a dog to get attention? Maybe you should start going to work with Glogirly!

  12. Hooray! I'm glad to see you back. Katie, nobuddy could resist that trick.

    ps: How cool that we are both on Mount Rushmore today! Happy President's Day!

  13. Katie we are thrilled to see you again! You need to train Gloman to blog for you next.

  14. Katie! It's been a long time! Good to see ya! My mama's job keeps her busy too.

    Hope you continue to be successful with your Gloman training. Keep warm during that blizzard!

  15. Katie I've been thinking of you sooo much! I'm so glad your back!!


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
