A Tipsy Wheelbarrow

Merci:  I had my first good walk in three years yesterday.

Buddy:  What are you talking about?  We all walk Jan just about every day.

Merci:  Yes, but you-know-who goes with us.

Buddy:  Marcus?

Merci:  Yes.  He leaps at my face and screeches in my ears.  I can barely see any more and it's terrifying when he does that.

Buddy:  You and I had a good walk yesterday with Jan.

Merci:  Jan didn't want you to go.  She wanted you to walk with Marcus since the two of you can walk faster and further than I can now.  She put Marcus in his crate and you kept pushing your way out the door demanding we not leave without you!

Buddy:  I think we did pretty good together.

Merci:  Yes, but you didn't want to go home.  And then you had to rest a while before you and Jan walked with Marcus.

Buddy:  Oh, that's why we guys walked first yesterday and then she went walking with you.

Merci:  Yes, it was so nice.  Just the two of us, like the old days before you and Sam and Marcus came along.  It was so peaceful.  I didn't have to struggle to keep up or walk twice as far twice as fast because my legs are so short.

Buddy:  It's hard to believe we've grown old.  I guess it won't be much longer before I'll have to walk with you because I won't be able to keep up with Marcus.

Merci:  And then we'll have to get a wheelbarrow for Jan because she's too decrepit to keep up with Marcus.

Buddy:  I hope you mean a wagon.  I can't imagine Jan riding in a tipsy wheelbarrow pulled by Marcus.

Merci:  The way Marcus dashes about, anything pulled by him would be tipsy. 

Buddy:  I know!  Do you think we could borrow the Budweiser Clydesdale wagon?

Taylor:  Excuse me, Buddy and Merci, but this is Friday and we Funny Farmer Felines are on the schedule.

Rusty:  We interview the kitties from the Four-Legged Furballs blog.

Micah:  We love getting to meet new friends.

Cyndi:  They have quite an interesting story, especially the handsome Evan.

Percy:  You can Meet the Four-Legged Furballs  - Evan, Thimble and Eddy - at

We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.  


  1. MOL...I think you better be sober when you push your Jan around...MOL :D Heading over to the interview. We love Evan and his family and will read the interview later, as we couldn't find it yet :D Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

  2. OMC!!! OMD! Imagine a wheelbarrow with doggies in it...or being pulled or pushed by a not too steady biped...namely Miss Jan!

    Now if you had a Budweiser wagon, pulled by a could all go and enjoy some fresh air...and you wouldn't get l=all out of breath either!

    it is a bit tiresome, having to adapt to the physical changes of age - but am pleased to read of your enjoyable outing Merci. ... I have often thought that if I am to take on another doggy, it would have to be able to pull me on a wagon of some kind!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. We love the new interview! One on one time with the Mom is pretty special ... and walking fast just requires too much energy!

  11. Maybe put Marcus in the wheelbarrow and push at your own pace, Merci!

  12. Maybe put Marcus in the wheelbarrow and push at your own pace, Merci!

  13. Sometimes it's nice to have your human all to yourself.

  14. That was a great interview, I love Evan and family.

  15. We are glad you enjoyed your walk yesterday Merci. I (Fenris) had a great walk yesterday, Mom let me walk off leash for the first time since Tuiren came to live with us. I stayed with them like I was suppose to so Mom said we can do it again. Tuiren has to stay on the leash, Mom doesn't trust her.

  16. Guys, you all sure do have a Rules of Order book. Now Merci, you did get a wonderful walk with jut your momma yesterday. Be glad and hopefully there will be more coming. Jan understands about you and your special needs. She will never let anything happen to you Merci. Don't worry. 💗

  17. We're happy you had a good walk with Jan, Merci. Goodness, with all this walking Jan will be in great shape, and a long way from decrepit.

    Off to read the interview. Have a great weekend efurrybody!

  18. Yeah, a wheel barrow might be hard. You need a no walking wagon for Jan!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
