Taylor: Let's see. You had a new blue ball. A new new blue ball. (Inside Outside Talk) A new new new blue ball (not blogged). A new red ball. (Red Rubber Ball) All within six months. Where did you get this white one?
Marcus: I found it.
Taylor: Outside in the dog pen?
Marcus: No. It was in a box, and then it was on the desk, and then, like magic, it was in my crate.
Taylor: I think you mean, then, by theft, it was in your mouth.
Marcus: Exactly! Wait! How did you know?
Taylor: I heard Jan yell, "You little thief!"
Marcus: Well, she shouldn't have turned her back for an hour.
Taylor: Ten seconds.
Marcus: Okay, for ten seconds.
Taylor: You didn't even wait for Jan to remove the tag.
Marcus: It was sent to me. I saw my name on the box.
Taylor: Your name is Jan?
Marcus: No, but I know when Canidae sent the dog biscuits and the new white ball for Christmas, they were intended for me. They just had one of those Jan moments and forgot my name.
Taylor: So what are you going to do with your new white ball, hide in your crate with it?
Marcus: Just until we bond.
Taylor: You're going to bond with a ball?
Marcus: Yes, bonding is very important to the mental health of a ball.
Taylor: Who told you that?
Marcus: My new white ball.
Taylor: And you believe it?
Marcus: Of course, I do. It's never lied to me yet!
Taylor: Today is Thankful Thursday and we're sure thankful the electric company came out Wednesday and cut down that "spider web" of branches twined around our power pole and power line.
We're joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home.
