Company's Coming, Listen up !
~~~Gather round all you critters . Important company is coming to visit with us for a few days. They are important because we love them, however, they are nice city people and there are just some things they will not appreciate...so listen up !~~~Sienna...you are our problem barker. The excessive barking must cease ! Their bedroom window is closest to you and the morning barking until you get fed is forbidden. You know you always get fed, but come on, the barking is annoying....please ? ~~~Black Bart, likewise. Just because you hear people stirring indoors does not mean you must begin baaing and bellowing...and had I known your cute little lamb body would house a baa that sounds like you have a permanent foghorn installed and sounding off anytime you think you might be hungry, why, I might have had second thoughts about bringing you home...well, I would still have brought you home, but I WOULD have thought a bit more about it. Anyway, just chill for a few days, please ? ~~~Vandal, you too can be considerate...you're fat enough and well fed enough. You won't starve and be overlooked if you choose to NOT baa loudly when Sienna hears Bart baa and bellow, because then Sienna knows Bart is baaing because he hears us, and it is her cue breakfast might be on the way....which gets the ducks quacking loudly, and in unison, which causes the chickens to squawk because they too are hungry, which causes the rest of the flock to baa, which causes the other dogs to bark.....oh my goodness, my poor , kind, city relatives. ~~~And Miss Marple, Aunt Sandi is allergic to you. So, do NOT single her out to follow, sit on her lap, lay on their bed...hey, don't narrow your eyes at me like that Missy! Listen up....and above all, NO MORE.... ~~~rows of dead mice and guts all over the front door mat ! I appreciate your hard work, and prolific vermin kills, but even though Uncle Larry and Aunt Sandi are retired medical professionals......they will not appreciate your bounty ! ~~~Welcome Uncle Larry and Aunt Sandi ! We are ALL excited about your visit, and love you. Even if we're a bit noisy and messy.
