(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Eggnog-06_profile-circleHello, I’m Eggnog! It’s been awhile since I’ve had the chance to write a post for Carol’s blog. I was supposed to write the Wordless Wednesday post the past two weeks, but Sherman kept pleading to take my turn. Don’t let “The General” fool you – he’s a big baby.

Now that the platform is mine, I would like to take this opportunity to put my brothers, Walter and Sherman, on notice.



The bed is mine, boys. I’m the one that gets to sleep with our moms every night. I cuddle up right next to Little Mom’s pillow and dream of chasing squirrels and barking at the next door neighbor [who I deplore]. It’s pure bliss.

You boys are young and rowdy which is why you sleep in your crates. You like your crates and I think that’s great. But when the two of you get up in the morning you seem to be under the mistaken impression that you are welcome to come nap on the bed. Let me dispel you of that notion: You’re not.

I thought that my charging you while snarling and barking ferociously would be enough of a hint. But you don’t seem to understand such subtleties. Instead, you cuddle up next to Little Mom, Sherman, taking MY SPOT! And you crawl under the covers, Walter, squeezing in the crook of Little Mom’s knees, so the only spot left for me is at the foot of the bed.

You tell me I get to sleep with them all night and it’s your turn. But you’re destroying my morning. And that’s why I’m telling you now that it’s MY bed and you’re NOT welcome. STAY. OFF.

If you don’t, I’m going to pee on Ethel’s costumes and tell her you boys did it.

  1. I hate when my spot gets stolen! And remind me to never make you mad. If you pee on Ethel’s costumes and blame the boys, they are done! I’m not even near you and I’m still going to take cover if it happens. I hope they heed your warning. *ear licks* Noodle

    • Hi, Noodle! I’m glad you understand. There’s nothing worse than having someone take your nice, warm, snuggly spot only to be relegated to the cold and lonely foot of the bed. And no worries, I can’t imagine getting mad at you, Noodle! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Oh I should think that threat to pee on Ethel’s costumes is enough to keep the bed unoccupied by the others – on the other hand, they may consider this a challenge – you’d best keep an eye (or two) out for introooooders who might invade when you let your guard down Eggnog.

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Oh, yes, Sammy, I always have one eye open! I don’t trust those boys almost as much as I don’t trust that pesky neighbor! Thank you for reading my post!


  3. Eggnog, it’s nice to see you back on the blog. We all have our spot and sometimes we must draw a line in the sand so to speak. It appears that Ethel is just scary enough that they will heed your warning!
    By the way, you look very cute on the bed. I see why your moms like you to snuggle with them.

  4. Starting a turf war and issuing preemptive threats of retaliation? Maybe you do know something about thug life, Eggnog. I don’t know, that bed looks awfully large, and you do get to enjoy it all night. Can’t you negotiate some kind of compromise with the gentlemen?
    By the way, I’m pretty sure Ethel reads your blog posts, so I don’t know if it was so wise to reveal your cards that way.

    • Why, hello, Albert! Thanks for stopping by to read my post. I may be very adorable, but don’t let my fluff fool you: I’m one tough little cookie. As for compromise, that seems unlikely. I’ve had my fill of these boys thinking they can push me around just because I’m smaller!

      Oh, and thank you for the heads up about Ethel. I didn’t realize she was that smart. I’m pretty sure I can work her. [And Ethel, if you’re reading this, I don’t mean that. It’s all a cover. You know I’m your girl. We have to stick together when it comes to not letting the boys — like that wretched Steve you despise — push us girls around.]

  5. Eggnog, while I applaud you for speaking your mind, I believe that Albert made some valid points. And I worry that by issuing your threat so publicly, that if harm (accidentally or on purpose) came to any of Ethel’s outfits that you could be blamed.

    • Hi, Jeanne! Thank you for your concern! Yes, Albert made a very good point about Ethel, but I believe I have mitigated any potential disasters 🙂


  6. We think they probably got it this time…we don’t think they would appreciate that peeing thing, do you? Hugs and nose kisses


    • The boys spent all morning with me on moms’ bed, so apparently my threat didn’t work. It doesn’t help that they may have overheard Ethel tell me yesterday that if her costumes get peed on, she’ll be peeing on my bed [the one that’s under the chair in the living room — NOT moms’ bed]. Looks like I have to come up with a Plan B!
