Morning Treat Time with Dad

Sometimes dad gets up first, so he gives us treats instead of mummy (who usually gets up first and usually gives us our treats). Dad is a bit more strict than mummy when it comes to treats, though…

gimmie treats

Gus is always begging for more treats than I do. Mum always says he’s such a “naughty boy!” Not me, though! I’m a perfect lady.

now give me treats

Ummm…. see? Perfect lady, much more dainty than Gus… ummm… right?

please gimmie treats

Wait, is Gus getting another cranberry? No fair! (Actually dad gave me one after this so it’s OK.)

are there any more treats

…are there any more treats, dad?

what no more treats

What?? No more treats!?!?


Well if there are no more treats, then I’m outta here! Goodbye! Harumph!

sneaky treat from mum

Mmmm… secret treat from mummy! Yay for me!! 🙂

Dad keeps the treats on the floor by the steps near our part of the living room. They are in sealed containers which are too much work to chew through. Lately, however, there’s even been a box of crackers there… with an open box top. I can smell the crackers. (Are you trying to taunt me, dad?)

Actually, as it turns out, I can tip this box over and if I sqeeze my head in there really hard, I might get a piece of cracker!!

Dad’s been in the room when I did this, and I haven’t gotten squirted with water yet, so it must be OK!

Now I just have to keep this discovery a secret from Betsy…


Cheering Up Mummy

I found a better way to cheer up mummy – better than being picked up, anyway.

Gus says that as an added bonus, it’s a great way to get across the IMPORTANT message that we need MORE TREATS.



Our papaya tablets finally arrived!! Yay!

Dad came in and gave us both a tablet when they arrived. Treat time tomorrow will be a happy time!


Out of Papaya Tablets

Dad gave us the last papaya tablet this morning, and he has no more! I knew I should’ve reminded him to buy more the other day. So we got 4 dried cranberries this morning instead of 3 to make up for the lack of tablets.

Still, dad, poor planning on your part. I thought you were supposed to be smart?

Treat Time!

Dad took this video of us yesterday morning.

Just give me the treats already, dad! Don’t pay attention to Betsy… give them to ME!

Mmmm, Papaya Tablets

My dad bought some papaya tablets again. Mmmm… they are my favorite! Even better than dried cranberries or banana!

Thanks, dad! Yum!

I Love My Mummy

It’s so nice to have my mum home again. She was in this “New Jersey” place for a really long time; Gus said she was there for that “work” thing that humans do. I’m so glad she’s home, though. I missed her. Unlike my dad, who picks me up sometimes, my mummy never does that. She talks to me and sometimes gives me a quick little pat – but only quick and little, because she knows that I get scared.

The best thing is that she gets up before dad, and she gives us treats nice and early. When she was gone, sometimes Gus would have to jump on the bed just to wake dad up to remind him to get up and give us our treats! But mummy never forgets.

Gus says I’m a “mummy’s girl,” and I guess I am. I love my mummy!
