Marcus Flashes

Rusty:  We just have to tell this story on the devil dog.  Oh, sorry.  On Marcus.

Merci:  The things this pup finds to get into often curls Jan's hair, even when the humidity is low.

Cameron:  Here is Marcus posing as if he is checking out a cat ball toy and actually behaving himself for once. 

Cyndi:  Doesn't he look innocent?  It never lasts, though. He'll do anything to get his picture taken.  Even behave.

Buddy:  Saturday morning Jan was talking to Mr. Doug on the phone.  Marcus walked up and opened his mouth a little.

Micah:  In case you aren't aware, it is dark in there.  In Marcus' mouth, I mean.  .

Sam:  So when Marcus walked up and opened his mouth, Jan almost freaked out.

Percy:  "Cause from this dark cavern bright colored lights started flashing. 

Sam:  After a slight scream and a second to blink, Jan reached in Marcus' mouth and pulled out that innocent little cat ball toy in the first photo.

Buddy:  See the cat toy flashing in the picture now that Jan has turned it on?

Percy:  It has a little button.  When pushed, colored lights flash.

Rusty:  Jan is working on deep cleaning the house, so no telling what else will show up, but Marcus found the lost toy somewhere. 

Micah:  And when he closed his mouth, he pushed the button.

Marcus:  So what's the problem?  I found the cat's ball so I should get a reward.  Instead you call me "devil dog".

Cyndi:  Marcus, you eat everything you can get in your mouth.  What if you had swallowed the ball?

Cameron:  You would be walking around flashing colors until the battery died.  Or you had to have surgery to remove it, whichever came first.

Marcus:  But I could have walked Jan to and from the human litter box so she didn't kick another door in the dark.  

Merci:  Right this moment, I'd give most anything for a video of that!

Marcus:  I would too.  I could have been an internet celebrity.
