The Proper Way to Celebrate Columbus Day

The humans had today off to celebrate Columbus Day. From what I understand, some guy came over from Italy in a boat and "discovered" the United States. Unfortunately, the people living here had already "discovered" it, but since the new guy had weapons and diseases, he just declared the land his and I guess we celebrate that by napping a lot.

That's a lot like me going to Petsmart and "discovering" a chew toy and taking it, although after Columbus "discovered" the United States, they were smart and passed laws called "theft" to keep someone else from "discovering" the United States and taking it from Columbus. Human stuff is very confusing.

So, yes, it was nap day at the house. There was a lot of napping going on. The human man slept in while the human woman went somewhere for a bit, so we napped with him.

When the human woman got home, she declared nap time, so we said "hey, why not" and napped for a few hours with her.

After our nap we ate, then decided that napping was again in order. We napped until dinner, then had a small after dinner nap, followed by a pre-bed time rest. In a bit we're going in to sleep for the night, and boy am I tired.

Loki was paying special attention to his butt again, so now we get tasty crunchy human cereal in our food. Something about fiber, but who cares, its tasty. It would be tastier with milk in a human bowl, but apparently most dogs are lactose intolerant, so there goes the milk thing. I can't hold a spoon anyway, so its just as well.

Well, that's about it from here. Pretty boring day, but we did get our share of napping in.

(time for bed now)

You look very fluffy in that picture Meeshka! Napping probably helps keep you fluffy!

Lucky you. My mom did not have the day off, but my dad did.

I hope Loki's butt gets better!

Jay said...

Wow, you napped as much as I do daily :)

Napping is such hard work. These humans don't have any idea how worn out we get, which requires so many naps. We get to nap all day with dad, then nap in the evenings after dinner, then nap again with mom at night. It is extremely hard work, and very exhausting, which leads to.....ummm, more naps!

What does the vet say about Loki?

We napped alot too as we were stuck in the house all day, our humans had to work & well, I'm sure the stupid lady has made everyone aware of our "fence issues". Oh well, she did leave a peanutbutter kong, she really is a push over!
