Wanted: Decent Belly Scratcher

Bunny here, still writing this week since Mom has been sick and busy with those weeds.

I tell you all, this festival is starting to cramp my style!  My walks have been practically non-existant since Mom's been sick and using her energy this week to battle the weeds out in the garden into submission.  She says that she's done all she can do for now before the festival gets under way, so I'm hoping that means she'll have the energy to walk me up through the festival tonight.  That American Idol show also was more important than my walk, although Mom said she needed to rest.  I don't see why it took two hours for them to say that Simon was great and announce the winner.  Mom said it was rigged and I hope that means she's done with it all.  A puppy has needs, you know!

To top it off, Dad took the afternoon off yesterday and finished fixing up the sidewalk and hauled away the pile of weeds that had been pulled.  Then he got home late with our food.  I was still happy to see him get home, though and I wagged my little tail when he got in the door.

Finally, as we were all sitting in the living room watching the latest American Idol debacle, I asked for only one thing.  I just wanted Dad to rub my belly.  Would he do that, though?  Noooooooooo!  He just kept teasing me.  One little belly rub and then he'd quit.  That is just not acceptable!  I'm going to have to put my paw down on this one.  If I can't have decent belly rubs, I just may have to pack up my collars, coats and stuffies and hit the road.  A puppy can only take so much!

Oh, I hear Mom finishing her yogurt!  I guess I'll stay for a while longer.  Hopefully there will be a walk through the festival tonight!

One more thing, we decided to try out another blog hop.  Feel free to join in!

  1. We loved your pics and video Bunny, we can see you are still having to do some work with those humans.
    What are they thinking of? Weeds are so unimportant and really if they see them as flowers in the garden they will be happy!
    Don't pack up just yet - give them another chance.
    love and kisses

  2. Oh, the abuse. Those humans are so difficult to train. Natasha, however, does suggest being a little less subtle. Like the paw slap across the face technique that she employs.

  3. Your dad is kind of a slacker. I think he should work out more so that he can rub you properly without getting fatigued. Hope mom continues to improve.


  4. They have to learn one thing and it's very impawtent. When time and energy are limited - let the weeds grow, the dust bunnies run free and don't skimp on belly scratches! It's a rule to live by.

  5. Bunny-

    You go girl! Make sure they show you the affection you deserve and if they don`t....well, you don`t have sharp, retractable claws do you?


  6. Too cute! Bella likes having her chest scratched, and if you stop before she thinks it's time, she'll actually bat you with her paws.

  7. I thinks your pawrents need to repriortize their's obvious they hasn't got a clue as to what's important...hehehe!
    We will just look fur new pawrents together...afters you have your yogurt cup though. I'll meet you at da train station.
    Pees: How evers did you know that I din't really hurt my toe.

  8. Woof! Woof! Belly Rubs are the greatest. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Oh Bunny, I feel your pain! Good help is so hard to find these days.

  10. Dads can be very much difficult at times. I hope your have a grrreat time with your festival. All that singing in your front yard will be fun. Are you guys planning to do some sing alongs??? Know what I mean??? Have a HOWLING good time. hehehehe

  11. miss bunny,
    it's totally sad, but i've discovered that sometimes we doggies have to bribe our hoomans to get what we need, like our belly scritchies. usually, i promise my mama or daddy that i won't dig holes in the backyard for ONE WHOLE DAY. heehee.
    i hope ya'll enjoy your festival, and i hope your mama is feeling the betterment today!

  12. You need to send your Moms and Dad back through training!!! They are obviously fallin' down on the job. How could they treat you that way? Hope things get back to normal soon!

    Woofs and Kisses!

  13. I do not see how your Daddy can resist that tempting belly. Your parents need retraining. Try whining. It works with my pup!!

  14. I tell you what! Humans can be SO difficults to train! I'm glad you decided to stick around a little bit longer. Humans are a life-long commitment, you know - no matter how trying they may be sometimes.

    Sympathetic wiggles & wags,

  15. Belly rubs are so important. Our Daddy has been out of town this week and he gives the best ear rubs. He better make up for it this weekend. Hope your Mom is feeling better.

  16. Aww, gotta rub the belly!

  17. So sorry about the weed obsession crimping your fun Bunny! It'll all be over soon and you'll be back to your normal routine. And, hopefully, your mom will be feeling better too.

    Next time, try nipping your dad on the nose every time he stops scratching your belly. That should get his attention. :)

  18. Hope your Mom is fully better soon! Looks like your Dad was looking after you well though!

    take care

  19. Eek, sounds like you've had some competition this week, Bunny. Simon and sidewalking.. I tend to feel the same as you about American Idol. I used to watch, but now no more.

  20. You do look quite happy with all those belly rubs.

  21. Im glad you and Dad are getting some time out, you should ask him to do a guest post on your blog Bunny, I wonder what his perspective is? xx Maj
