Merci: I'm sure you were wondering where we were yesterday and why the cats wrote the first post of the year. We drew straws.
Buddy: No, we didn't. We drew treats and the one who drew the chicken one would win for his team - Team Dogs or Team Cats. But when it came Marcus's turn he ate the remainder of the treats, so we dogs lost by treat default.
Merci: I was trying to be polite and keep us all from being embarrassed.
Marcus: You just had to tell that story, didn't you! You left out the part that I was late to the meeting and I missed the instructions. I thought you were all just being generous when you passed the covered bowl to me.
Merci: We haven't been doing much of this lately. Walking, I mean, not standing around posing for dumb pictures of Marcus sleeping upright. I wonder how he does that?
Buddy: The new year came in with a lot of rain, so we were doing a lot of this.
Marcus: And this. See, I really do like my crate even when Jan is home and the door is open.
Buddy: We want to start the new year by giving you as big a laugh as the cats did yesterday.
Merci: So we're posting this America's Funniest Video of Dogs Discovering Snow.
Marcus: If this doesn't make you laugh, you might want to check your pulse to be sure you're still with us cause we were all rolling on the floor.
