Mom had a pair of Ugg type slippers she really liked. Had them fur several years. They were really hardy and warm. My sisfur befure me paid them no mind. Mom could leave them anywhere in the house and they would remain unmolested and unmoved.
When the new puppy, me, came along she made sure to put them behind closet doors when not wearing them. She was very good at this fur close to two years. Sometime last spring she made the mistake of leaving them on the shoe mat in our entry way. Two slippers placed neatly side by side. Come back to put them on and one is missing. Until it turns up she figured she would make do with the slipper socks she has. They are not as nice and she enjoys them less. But she uses them fur the time being, sure the one slipper will turn up eventually.
Spring turns to summer and the weather becomes warmer. Less need fur slippers fur Mom. She is content to just wear regular socks around the house or have naked feet. She is unconcerned she is missing her one slipper. Always thinkin' it will turn up when & where she least expects to find it.
Summer turns to fall and Ma realizes the slipper has NOT turned up eventually and it has now been months since it went missing. The mornin's are getting cooler. She misses her nice slippers. But she delays buyin' new ones thinkin' the old one will turn up as soon as she replaces them.
Finally, today she comes across some nice Dearfoam slippers, even more soft and luxurious than her original pair. She brings them home in the box and foolishly places it on the coffee table. The box is open on the top so a shopper can feel the luxurious softness without removing the merchandise from the box. Does the exposed slipper still feel luxuriously soft? Sort of. There's now evidence of some crusty dog slobber on it.
There you have it! That 'not me' dog has now visited my house twice! Furst in the spring when that old slipper went missin' and today slobberin' over Mom's new slippers. What can ya do with that pup?! I'm gonna hafta be hyper vigilante now and keep a close eye on those slippers! BOL!

BOL! I think someone has a thing for slippers - must be NotME!
Yeah, that NotMe must be a member of Slippers Anonymous!! BOL!
Hmm, a true mystery at your place. Wonder where the ugh slipper went and if it will ever show up.
And why would your Mom buy slippers that are pre-slobbered?
Hey Whitley & Finley! Yeah, that NotMe sure is a naughty one!
Zoe, you raise some really good questions! Mom thinks that lost slipper will now show up since she went and replaced it. As fur the pre-slobberiness who knows?!
Your Mom will really have to be carefur, or she might be wearing a pair of missed-matched slippers...if that 'Not-me' dude passes through your den...BOL!
Meantime......... the first slipper is..................
MrJack, Mom was just saying that to Dad!! Although if one of the new ones goes missin' it'll probably be the same foot! BOL!
Flicka, that's the mystery. I don't think NotMe took it outside. It has GOT to be in the house somewhere! I once threw a toy behind a big piece of furniture by shakin' my head side to side. Up, over & behind it went. Maybe that's what NotMe did! If we ever move or buy a new entertainment center there's gonna be all kindsa stuff found back there! BOL!
