Lots of stuff to tell you!

Wrooooooooo, furends! OMDOG, I had SO much FUN last night! The Girl isn't sure exactly what happened, and I'm not telling. The things that are known are: The Girl was downstairs and the Roomie was either in the bathroom or her bedroom. I was left unsupervised in the living room, with the Min Pins and the CATS!

All of a sudden, there was a great clatter, and I was wroooooo-ing my cat serenade. The Pins were barking, and the Roomie ran into the living room. She found me (and Cleo) in the corner; I had Cleo pinned down behind a dining room chair and the big indoor house tree. The Pins were going crazy and I was having the MOST FUN EVER!

The Roomie had a very hard time grabbing my collar, because I was using EVASIVE MANOUVERS. I tromped on her toe for good measure, buying myself more time for FUN!

The Roomie had just captured me and was dragging me to the stairs. The Girl came up the stairs and ordered me down into our bedroom. She followed me, and locked me in. She said I was in EXILE. (At least she was in there with me.) The Pins kept barking, and every time I heard a sound from upstairs, I had to wroooooooooo or make my grumpy sound. And jump up against the door to try to get out. I don't understand why sometimes I can push the door with my nose and it opens, and other times it just seems to be shut even more.

After about an hour, I was still totally vigilant, totally ready to leap to the door at the slightest sound. The Girl made me stay in the room ALONE while she went upstairs to make sure evfurrybody up there was okay.

Lo and behold, the Roomie was on the floor, trying to coax Hailey out from under the couch. Sometime during the seconds when I was totally unsupervised, she got off the scratching post, too, only she went for the bunker under the couch. The Girl and the Roomie suspect that one or the other of the cats (or both) forgot I was in the room and started down off the scratching post. I noticed and it was GAME ON!

Anyway, eventually Hailey came out from under the couch. The Pins has been locked in the Roomie's bedroom while the Roomie worked on Hailey, and they got let out. I, on the other hand, remained in EXILE.

The only injury during the incident was to the Roomie's toe. Sorry, Roomie!

I had the BEST TIME! OMDOG, it was so fun! Unfortunately, neither the Roomie nor The Girl had the presence of mind to take pictures, so you'll just have to imagine the glory of it all. To help you, here are some pictures to remind you what Hailey and Cleo look like.

This is what they usually look like, perched up on the ceiling-high scratching post. The orange and white cat is Cleo, and the grey and orange one is Hailey.

This is how the cats look when they are heading on off the post. This is a picture of Hailey from a long time ago.

Anywroo, it was a MOST exciting evening!!!

In other news, I have received many compliments on the picture that used to be my header, the one where I have an Elvis sneer. Stella even asked me to ask The Girl to put it back up! Well, she didn't do that yet, but she played around and created a new picture, especially for you, Stella!!!

BOL, isn't it great?!

Today, it was warmer outside (only -3), so I was allowed to stay outside for a little bit. I heard our teenaged neighbours, and I raced to the back of the yard, barking my little brown head off! Their black Lab and I ran the fences and barked at each other (it's been so long since we've even seen each other!), and I bounded through the snow like some kind of deer, The Girl says. Of course, she didn't get pictures of that, either. Sigh.

The Girl is going to make me a compromise, she says. The longer she procrastinates about us visiting evfurrybody's bloggies, the more and more entries there are, and the behinder and behinder we get. So, after a very FEEBLE attempt on the weekend to catch up, she has decided that we will start reading evfurrybody's most recent posts, and then if "we" have time, we might catch up on the ones we missed.

I, for one, don't know how this is a compromise! There was no negotiation whatsoever. I think this is more of an executive decision by the one with hands than a compromise. But until I figure out a way to work the pooter on my own, I guess I have to accept it. Wroo. See you all soon, I'll be the doggy who has no idea what's going on with my furends.

Wrrroooo Dannan! Sounds like you're way too busy terrorising your feline housemates *snigger* to visit bloggies! Wow, congratulations on your really fun time chasing the cats, some things are just worth getting in trouble for, huh? We love to chase our cat but it's a dangerous pastime for he is a grouchy old £$%^&&* and likes to eat doggy's eyes for breakfast!! (or so Mum threatens, pff)
BOL, we LOVE, love, love your Elvis picture, so funny....and so you, Stella was bang on there!
Anyhowl, we should be in our beddies, the humans are snoring their silly heads off!
Slobbers xx

Lorenza said...

Hi, Dannan!
Too bad your Girl and Roomie don't have the sense of humor you have!
Sure you had fun with the kitties!
Kisses and hugs

Who is Marley? said...

You shouldn't have been was all the cats fault. They want to be chased otherwise why would they run!

Stella said...

Wooooo! Dannan, what a great Elvis look-a-like you are! Mom says she might use that pix for wallpaper on the puter, whaddya say to that? Tell the girl she did a good job with it!
Your Cat party sounds like lots of fun to me, but I don't think my Mom would let me get by with it. You keep on if you can, though!


The Thundering Herd said...

Somehow, we are never allowed anywhere near cats, so never get the fun you had. Love the Elvis picture.

Pearl said...

Dannan, sounds like the funnest night EVER! Cats are DEEELSISHUSH! You should try nibbling in the tail... best part! Sorry The Girl was such a party-pooper... the people wouldn't know fun if it hit 'em in the mouth... or the toe. :)

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

wow, Dannan, you sure have a busy life! those kitties wouldn't stand a chance in this house, so it's good you're there to "play" with them.

we LOVE your Elvis picture! Guinness tries to be Elvis sometimes too, but she doesn't do it as well as you do

Tibby said...

Hi Dannan!
Sounds like you had a blast! I will definitely call you if the cats try to hijack my bloggy again! I hope you didn't have to stay in exile for too long!
PS: I have given you an award! Stop by my blog to pick it up!

Eduardo said...

Woha Dannan you have been really busy! I wish I could've been there for the cat adventure! I like your header pic now! But that Elvis pic is really cool!

Wow, you have a really full life, buddy! It sure seems like a lot of fun. We mean, snow AND cat chasing??? How'd you get so lucky?! :)

Well, we're kinda enjoying your snow, too!

Happy New Year from the next province over!


Mango said...

Great party! No blood, no foul is what my momma always says. Why did you have to go into exile? Maybe one of the cats could have gone in the room to keep you company.

That blue suit is cool. Can you disco?


Saint Lover said...

Sounds like it was absolute pandemonium in the living room. I bet it was fun though and totally worth being put in exile.

River said...

I would have loved to help you out with the cat catching! We will keep barking and be vigilant for hours--or until my mom stomps her foot and says SHUT UP!! Usually, we stop. The Elvis picture is too funny. I have an Elvis sneer but my mom has never caught it on camera.

love & wags,

Lady Kaos said...

My catbrother gets me in trouble all the time and I never do anything bad!! I love your Elvis picture!!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is a great story Dannan. Mom should know better than to let you out with those CATS out.. To bad you were exiled for so long. We would have found a way to get you out..

Big Sloppy Kisses

"executive decision by the one with hands" HAHAHA HAHAHAHA WROOO!!!!

Maybe we should have asked Santa for opposable thumbs for Christmas because I'm having the same problem.

Sounds like fun you had with the kitties. Wowza.

Kess And Her Mama said...

Oh yeah! You go girl! You showed those cats who's the boss!
