It's Official

Yep. Abby is now officially The Hippobottomus. See?!?

When it says so on a name tag, you know that it's true! All I can say is that I hope that Abby, the Mutant Alien Pod Puppy (henceforth to be known simply as the Hippobottomus), will stop growing. I mean, she's got to stop growing at some point.

Doesn't she?!? Please tell me that she will stop growing at some point. Please!

At least I'm still The Boss.

Neener, neener.

Although, if the truth be told (and why not, since it is the truth, after all), she's getting a little tougher to take down.

I especially like this picture! I am SO the Queen!


Don't worry. No puppies, or Hippobottomuses (Hippobottomi?) were hurt in the making of this post.

BTW, apparently Hippobottomi can run quickly when need be...

Heehee. (Again)

But lest you think that the Hippobottomus is a poor, defenseless creature who only gets beat on by her older and wiser sister, let me assure you that she can sucker Mom with innocent looks with the best of them. Hey. We both learned from The Master!

That look has earned that girl more treats than I can count!

The Hippobottomus? Now that is a unique name. But the poor bearer of it ....

We'll let you know what we learn about taking over the world after we read the book.

Maybe that hippo-bottomus is caused for all the treats she gets with those puppy eyes!
Happy Weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Fiona, have you ever heard of "Clifford the Big Red Dog" ... ?

Kari in WeHo said...

oh wow I just love that tag!


BRUTUS said...

You guys always have great tags! Where does your mom find them - gotta think they are custom-made (what would the chances of finding hippobotomus otherwise??).

BTW, I'm starting to the feel the same way about Carmen - she weighs 17s lbs now (I'm only about 24 currently). And she knows how to throw all that weight around, let me tell ya...

Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

Stand your ground and don't let her get away with that cute stuff. She is awfully cute though...but not as cute as you!

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Fiona! You crack us up!! Hippobottomi!!!:))))) xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

The Thundering Herd said...

So the rule here is that no pup gets a treat within view of another pup without all pups getting treats (is that clear). Something about not letting a war break out or something. Anyway, so if she works mom for treats, don't you get some.

P.S. - The corollary to that is the way to get bonus treats is to get alone time with the hu-dad.

I love, love, love the tag :)

Heather and Pumpkin said...

OMG I would die of embarrassment if the pawparazzi caught me wearing that tag!


Chewy said...

Hahaha love it!

It always comes down to "the look". I've been sharing that info in my dog training tips, ya know? In any case, Fiona, I have faith in you. No matter how ginormous your sister ends up becoming, these photos are proof that you're the top dog. The Alpha and the Omega!

Pee Ess: We love the tag and you know our momma almost shorted out the keyboard by drooling over her new tag. BOL BOL BOL
