Remember Polly?

The humans have been keeping Polly put away since apparently I play too rough with her.

They brought her back out for me to play with – woohoo! They turned their backs for just a few minutes and…


I was admiring my handiwork, but mom didn’t seem so impressed. Needless to say, Polly has been out away again. It was fun while it lasted, though!

The humans have really tried to teach me manners. I was sorely lacking in them when they first brought me home, but have made tons of progress. Two of the more important manners they’ve taught me are patience and sharing.

I have to sit nicely for cookies and my dinner. And if I leave the humans alone while they’re eating, I’ll usually get a little bite as a reward. On an unrelated note – why do they get to eat three times a day while I only eat twice a day?

Anywho, today was no exception. Mom came home for lunch and fed me little bite when she was done because even though I was sitting next to her on the couch, I was very polite – I didn’t bulldoze my way in, whine, or drool (too much). In short, I used my manners just like the humans taught me and was rewarded.

So, I was a little confused as to why mom got slightly miffed when I practiced using my manners again! I thought we were sharing –

She finished off her lunch with a nice, cold glass of water and rested it beside her. Which I mistook as an invitation to, you know, help myself. I mean, share.

What? I was thirsy too! And it was right.there. I didn’t even have to get up. So, I just have to ask: who’s training who in this family?

Until next time,
