Clown o Doofus

Micah:  We have decided the clown outfit Marcus tried on before Halloween was perfect for him.

Rusty:  Yes, since he's one of us, we'll call him a clown instead of a doofus. 

Marcus:  Hey, thanks, guys.  I'm not sure what a doofus is but I think I made a great clown.  Why are you posting this picture, though?  Halloween is over.

Buddy:  It's not over for you, Marcus.  Since the weather cooled down and we had that really cold spell last weekend, you have been bouncing off the walls with energy, driving us all crazy, and beating up on Jan.

Cyndi:  Yes, and you have been chasing us cats through the house, stealing the dishcloth and pot holder to chew on, and ... and ... and. 

Merci:  Jan laid the utility bill down on the desk for a minute the other morning and you grabbed it and chewed.  At least you missed the check, but she had to toss the envelope, write a "sorry, my dog chewed the bill" message and use a fresh stamp.

Percy:  The other day you were so excited to go for a walk.  Nothing unusual about that, but when you were all about to walk down the porch steps, Jan noticed your harness was about to come off your hips.  You're supposed to wear it around your shoulders.  How did you manage that?

Sam:  So there stood Jan, both feet planted on mine and Buddy's leashes while she held your collar with one hand and tried to put your harness back over your shoulders, but you stiffened your legs so it wouldn't go.  She had to take it off over your hips and put it back on you the correct way while you wiggled and leaped and tried to roll.   

Cameron:  Percy and I watched through the window.  It was pretty entertaining.  I guess if there's something we're thankful for this week, it's that Jan didn't go headfirst down the porch steps. She might have had a problem feeding us and scooping our poop while wearing a full body cast.
