Buddy Mini Mess

Buddy:  When I was a pup I kept the area around my bed so neat and organized, I started a bedmaking school to help others learn the basics of housekeeping.  When Mini Me AKA Marcus first came to stay with us temporarily, he was a young, impressionable pup and I am proud to say he has been an A student.

Marcus:  Thank you, Buddy.  I am proud to be your Mini Me.  I love keeping my area clean and neat.  Here I am a few weeks ago playing in my (borrowed) neat and clean crate.  I've since outgrown it but it was fun to retreat inside away from the mess the other dogs make. 

Buddy:  As you can see, everything was in its place.

Percy:  And what place would that be, Buddy?  It looks like a mess to me and the other cats.

Marcus:  I take exception to that, Percy.  Would you like to borrow Jan's reading glasses so you can see the photo better?

Percy:  No, thanks.  I can see it fine.  I can also remember Marcus dragging our cat toys into the crate before he shredded them.

Merci:  I remember sharing sleeping quarters with you, Buddy.  You weren't happy just making a mess on your half of the bed, you'd mess up my half too.  It always looked like a family of baboons wandered through and left their trash strewn about.

Buddy:  I never!

Merci:  You always!  And this winter while you and Marcus slept in luxury, Jan covered the crate to make me a warm cave to sleep in at night.  I could never get comfortable because of all the lumps in the bedding.  If that's what you guys think is gold star bedmaking, you obviously slept through the course.

Marcus:  I thought this post was supposed to be a positive one about me and my mentor Buddy.  He taught me everything I know about being neat and clean. 

Buddy:  Just look at how organized Marcus kept his crate.

Merci:  I hate to break this to you guys, but, Marcus, you're not a Buddy Mini Me.  You're a Buddy Mini Mess.

Marcus:  Thank you, Merci. I'm so thankful Buddy saw my potential and took me under his wing ... er, paw.
