Java Talk: Pet Stories
Java Talk Wednesday, June 08, 2016
I love to read or hear pet stories. The sillier the better. Pets have such unique personalities.
Like my Abi. She's a diva and a vixen all at the same time. And she's very jealous.
She does everything she can to keep Charlie from getting a bite to eat, but he isn't losing any weight. So I guess he's somehow getting around her. You know he's down to 2 teeth...
My Charlie is a sweet boy. He likes to be underneath his blankie. Sometimes he accidentally gets sat on. What I think is a fluffy blanket is sometimes Charlie. Somehow I've never hurt him.
Abi talks. I'm not quite sure what she says. But lately she turns on the tricks at bedtime.
She waits until I turn the lights off for the night. Then she stands in the dark hallway and starts making odd Abi sounds.
She ups the ante if I don't respond.
So I say something like: "Where's my girl???" (Add in a lot of inflection and modulation. Just talking to her normally does not work. She wants some theatrics thrown in.)
After I respond, she says something else, usually in a little bit higher tone and pitch. Which means she's winding herself up like a top all ready to twirl.
After we go back and forth with this and I basically beg her to come to bed, she will run up the doggy steps, letting me know what a prize I've just won by the way she acts.
Charlie just plops himself down and starts snoring.
I've added a funny YouTube video for your amusement. It upset Abi terribly to hear the video. She sat in the floor and cried, head cocked in consternation, during the whole thing. Charlie just slept next to me.
So how about some pet stories???
