Marcus Has A Plan

Buddy:  Well, here we are in the doghouse again.

Marcus:  Doghouse?  What doghouse?

Merci:  It's a figure of speech, Marcus.  It means we are in trouble again.

Marcus:  What did we do?

Buddy:  Merci and I were excited and rowdy.  You tried to take Jan out!

Marcus:  Out where?

Merci:  Out of commission.  As in down on the sidewalk being dragged.

Marcus:  Not me!  I've been an angel all day.

Buddy:  Are you denying when those two loose dogs came running across the street at us you went wild and started leaping around like a bull moose in a tub of seltzer water?

Marcus:  I certainly do deny it.  And I didn't see you two behaving yourselves either.

Merci:  Aha, so you do admit it!

Marcus:  I admit nothing.  Besides it all worked out in the end, didn't it?

Buddy:  Yes, because Jan used that psychedelic water pistol she carries to squirt them in the face with water and their owner was right behind to catch them and take them back to their house.

Merci:  He apologized that they had gotten loose and Jan said she hopes we never get loose because she can't chase us.

Marcus:  So what's the problem?

Buddy:  The problem is that you get excited and your brain goes on vacation.  You could have injured Jan!

Marcus:  She would have been okay.  We would have picked her up and walked her home.  Percy would have done a cat scan to make sure she hadn't lost any important body parts in the fall, and I would have licked her wounds so she'd heal faster.

Merci:  Oh, well, just so you had a plan.

Marcus:  Of course.

Buddy:  You do know Merci was being sarcastic, don't you?

We're joining Pepi Smart Dog for today's Thankful Thursday blog hop. 



  1. Yikes, that seems a drastic plan, Marcus...just saying, BOL! Hope your Mom is OK though. Nerves a bit frazzled?? You pups are gling to drive her around the bend some day and not in a car...

  2. Hari OM
    BOL - 'cat scan'.... hehehehe.. **ahem**... but really Marcus and co - good to have a plan, but better that it not be required!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Hope you're having a great day!

  4. That plan sounds like you need to add a little red wagon Marcus, so you could pull Jan back home. God thing you didn't need to! Purrs that you all give Jan a rest now til she finds all her nerves and butterflies. - Katie Kitty Too and Katie the Mom

  5. Maybe Jan needs to use that psychedelic squirter on the OWNER!!!
    Poor Jan, you guys really give her a hard time.

  6. Loose dogs can ruin our walks faster than a thunderstorm! It is my biggest pet peeve because it is so dangerous for the dogs and the humans. I've ended up in an arm brace and foot boot over a loose dog. Grrr...

  7. Marcus we say it time and time again, but you make us laugh so much. WE are glad Jan is safe though. stella rose

  8. Maybe Jan can't chase you but she is certainly furry brave!

  9. Dang, I didn't know you had Jan working on commission!

  10. That is smart of Jan to carry a water pistol. It was the other dogs' fault, not yours.

  11. That's quite the plan, Marcus! We're glad things worked out okay. Thank God for Jan's psychedelic water pistol!

  12. Hehehe...I like your picture of the conversation..MOL :D Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

  13. I, Marelous, think the best plan is to chill when there are rowdies...but who am I to say...I go snaky when I see Cinnamon!
