De inimico non loquaris sed cogites*

There are times that I think I might have been better off if Mom and Dad had gotten me a goldfish rather than my evil, monstrous, terrible dear sweet sister. But what can you do? Other than convince Mom and Dad to adopt something that will terrorize Abby. I know, attempt to keep her in her place. But it's getting tougher. My fat-bottomed sister is getting speedier.

And she's in my face...

Drastic times call for drastic measures...

And she's got crazy eyes.

I don't think a goldfish would be quite so crazy-eyed. I'm just saying...

Anyhoo, other than dealing with my crazy sister (honestly - she will get on the bed and wait for me to come in the room and then try to pounce on me when I want to get up on the bed; a goldfish would not do that...), we've been going on a lot of long walks. The weather is in limbo - it's not really snowing, other than some flurries, but it's cold at night and cool and windy during the days. Unfortunately, it warms up just enough that the backyard gets muddy, so my chances to put Abby in her place are limited. But we're walking a lot.

And Mom and Dad are hoping for snow...

Me? I'm just hoping for some more backyard time so I can remind Abby who's boss.

I'm just saying...

*Don't wish ill for your enemy; plan it.

PeeEss: I should amend this to say that I really do love my little sister, I just love her more when she's asleep, or running errands with Mom while I'm home with Dad... Heehee!

If you get enough brothers and sisters, then you can always stir up trouble. And think how entertained your humans would be.

Just saying.

P.S. - Our security word is grace.

You're a good girl to share your humans with the hippobotomus Fi. I can only imagine how trying it can be!

Since I'm the little sister here, I think Toby thinks that about me ALL the time. We little sis's TRY to be good.....

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Wow, look at that clothesline technique! Very impressive! I'm sure it would have worked if she hadn't dodged to her right just then.

You guys look really tough and fierce! But I guess you have to look that way when you're running away from your sister.

Fiona,

I feel for what you are going through BUT your sissy is so cute and it could be worse. When your Mom & Dad are busy who would you play with. I don't have a sissy or a brother to play with. Baby Girl is visiting with us this weekend and it been fun having somebody I can push around since I'm bigger than her.

You're having a snow squall today!!?? I might have to speed my goldy legs and head out there....it's too warm here, making melty snows in the mountains :(

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

BRUTUS said...

Believe me, Fi... I TOTALLY understand! What was the name you came up with for that support group - something about tortured older siblings? I definitely think we need to get that up & running!!
