Well, I've finally done it! I've come up with a New Year's resolution for the first time ever. I decided that I've had enough of coming in last when it comes to getting attention from mom. Now it's all about ME!!! Up until now, I've always taken a back seat to all the furbutts in the house. I've been letting those furbutts walk all over me, push me out of the way, and hog all the mommie time and I never said a word. They have taken me for granted and I've decided that enough is enough!
Normally when mom comes home from work, she lets me out to take care of business. While I'm out, she goes around and greets some of the furbutts. Then I come back in and she's still going around saying hello to them all. It takes awhile. Well today after I came back in, I decided that it was my turn to say hello to mommie. I pushed my way in and kicked the furbutts out. Of course there was some discontent noted from those affected furbutts. Oh well! Get over it!!! Eventually mom sat down to watch the news and Princess climbed in her lap and Tabby was rubbing her head on mom's feet. I came up and stuck my nose in mom's lap, pushed Princess out of the way and stepped on Tabby to make her move. Then I partially climbed up into mom's lap as Princess and Tabby voiced their unhappiness. Whatever!!!
Then mom went to change her clothes and Tabby was right there with her. So what did I do? I trotted my way to mom, pushed Tabby aside and sat my butt down on the floor in between mom and Tabby. Of course I had to wag my tail and whip Tabby in the head and face a time or two just to add insult to injury. Then Tabby decided that she had had enough of me butting in...she swatted at my face and made contact while digging her claws into my nose. I let out a yelp but mom doesn't know if it was because it hurt or maybe it was just the surprise that Tabby actually retaliated! Either way, I retreated.
So now I have to rethink this New Year's resolution thing. Is it worth it? Do I want to run the risk of incurring future bodily harm? If I continue with my resolution, are the furbutts going to gang up on me? If there was just 1 or 2, I'm sure I could handle it but there's like 100 of them. They're everywhere!!!
You know, this shouldn't even be an issue! I'm a dog! I'm bigger than they are, stronger than they are, smarter than they are, and more superior than they are. Of course we can't forget that I'm more loyal than they are! The last time I checked, dogs are humans best friend, not cats! So what's wrong with this picture?
I'm not sure I'll ever make another New Year's resolution. If I do, I'll need some help planning it. I guess I didn't think this one out all the way first before I implemented it. Maybe someone out there can offer some suggestions. You know, I have the rest of this year to perfect the planning of next year's resolution. That may seem like a long time until then, but I'm sure it's right around the corner. I need to start now, don't I? I guess there's no rest for the weary!!!
