Deep Thoughts

Samantha here. I've been spending a lot of time thinking and I have come to the sad conclusion that I don't get as much attention as the other Brats. I think it's because I'm short and so low to the ground. The humans don't seem to bend over as much as they should to pet me or give me kisses. Humans are lazy like that. Even Millie gets more love than me because even though she's short she can jump high. I'm not so much an athlete, sigh. Anyway, I'm feeling sorry for myself and will take any advice to make the humans love me more. Maybe I should let them give me a bath so I smell like flowers.

Oh Sam! You look so sad. Maybe you should come to Mayemphis where hound dogs rule?

Mom says come live with us and you will get all the attention you want.

I am a shortie but I hog as much attention as possible. Oscar sometimes gets in the way because he is a cuddlebug but I monopolize my ma ape through sheer force of will. Use your big, brown sad eyes and those cheeky jowls to look achingly sad. Look adoringly at your apes with a combination of adoration and sadness.

Work what you got, Sam. I don't know how anyone could ignore a lovely lady such as yourself.

We're sorry you're sad, Samantha.But being tall or jumping high isn't all that great either. Your advantage is your sad eyes. Use them to your advantage and your humans will be bending over to cuddle you and try to cheer you up.

If that doesn't work, ask to be traded into a household of short people.

Have woo khonsider relokhating to DELL-UH-WHARE?

If all else fails I think you should catch a bus east and move in with us. Not only would I shower you with attention but my ma ape is short n' chubby just like us so she doesn't have far to reach to pet us.

Maybe we could do a trade and send down Oscar Bean. I think he and Rulon Mooch have similar energy/obnoxious levels.

I'm sorry that your 2 leggers do not see you to be as valuable as the rest of the pack. Their loss. If they can't see you for the jewel that you are without fancy schmancy baths, they are probably not worth it anyway. Enjoy the peace and quiet-once they get their fingers on ya they can get pretty annoying anyway.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

I suggest wagging and wagging A TON! Maybe try and kitty move and rub your neck against your humans legs?!

You are so cute and need extra love!!!

Capitalize on your strengths, Sam. By being low, you can easily get underfoot and bring the humans down to your level. Go for it.

Don't let them give you a bath. That would be torture! Just bark and yell at them more.

Brownie said...

Awww, samantha, you look sad! Maybe you should get yourself a rolling chair so that you can be higher up? Or maybe you can get one of your minions to do all the dirty work for you and fetch your pawrents when you want a cuddle. :)

mare said...

As a human, I can attest you your case: Yes, you are -unfortunately - correct. Pups at hand height DO get more lovin'

But know this, that is the root of all human shame. (We are lazy).
