It's Getting Worse: Pencils and Pens Being Confiscated

Thank you all for your creative suggestions as to how I could commandeer the laptop that Mom seems to think belongs to her exclusively. I tried the paws on arm and adorable look -- the first time she gave me a snack; the second time, she took me outside to the pee bush. The third time, she said, Uh, uh, uh!!!!

Then it got worse: she was on the telephone when she heard a suspicious crunching coming from my cubicle (aka my crate which I use only for bedtime snacks, but JH likes to use for R & R rather than his own alongside). Upon inspection, she found that JH, in a brave attempt to find an alternative means of communication, had swiped a ball point pen from the table and had splintered it into a dozen pieces. All pieces were immediately confiscated. (The traces of blue ink on JH's muzzle did give him a slightly debonair look and he wore them as a badge of honor.)

The same thing has been happening to the No. 2 yellow lead pencils Mom used to leave around. After she discovered tooth marks on all, missing erasers, and a few fragments on the rug -- they too have been confiscated. (No photos, of course, because of the current lack of photographic as well as secretarial help.)

What's next:? I suspect I may have to resort to one of Fee's suggestions --dressing up in Mom's best shoes and makeup -- to make the point that, unless I get EQUAL COMPUTER ACCESS TIME, we're headed for a serious showdown.

Can you all hear our pathetic woofs?

Hi, Jake.
Sure your situation is getting worse. No computer rights, no entertainment rigths! You need to have a serious talk with your mom, face to face!
Have a nice day

I still think you guys oughta just get up an hour earlier to grab some time. That is what me and muzzer have to do on trips especially. She says I am worth it.

Our humans get up at 6 am already, whether we dogs like it or not; Dogdad leaves at 7 am; we get walked individually by 7:30 and have breakfast.

Then "she who keeps the laptop" sits down to work. Since I don't think we could be too eloquent before 6 am, it will have to be a bedtime strategy.

I think all of our friends'support is getting to her though and I noticed the camera has been moved to a more convenient place!! Peer pressure seems to be working.

Poor guys,
Maybe you should chain her to the puter desk. Use your leashes or something similar to tie her up, hehehehe! Maybe you can get your Papa to take pictures for you huh?? Hope you get to blog soon!!

Aw, you guys are really suffering! I once tried the pen thing with a whole pack of coloured pens. Mum so didn't appreciate the modern art all over the wood floor, hehehe!

Hi Guys,

Pens and pencils are real good. I have been trying now for months to chew some of my moms blue pens and all I've been able to get are the caps. She is pretty quick about taking them out of my mouth, which I clamp shut like a vise. One day I came close to getting blue all over my white fur, but she got the pen in time. Shucks! But I did get some caps to the pens thoiugh. She does't seem to care about those.

Pencils are good, too. I really like them because they are wood. I chew everything wood that I can get my teeth on.

As for your mom confiscating the pens and pencils, that's terrible. Seems as though humans want all the good stuff for themselves.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,
Your friend Kooby

Hey, boyz.

If you ever do have that showdown with your mom, do us a favor, and get someone to videotape it, ok?

On the other paw, I hope you all can work something out peaceful like. If I think of any good suggestions I'll send them your way.

Goob love,
