Do a Grouch a Favor Day

Pierre: “Bentley, it is your special day! Aren’t you excited?”
Bentley: “What are you yammering about, Pierre? This had better be good because you totally messed up my nap. I was right in the middle of a good dream, too. I happen to know that it is NOT my birthday so like I said; this had better be good and hopefully, there is cake involved.”
Pierre: “I can check on some cake or anything that you want because today is all about making you happy. I’ll even let you get a head start when we chase squirrels.”
Bentley Basset Hound finds himself in the garbage can to celebrate Do a Grouch a Favor Day.

Bentley: “Okay, what gives? My birthday is in December, Valentine’s Day is over, Best Friends Day is in June, Spoil your Pet Day is in August and Hug your Hound Day isn’t until September. Why are you being so nice to me? What makes today special for me? I don’t have time for your Terrier nonsense.”
Pierre: “It is Do a Grouch a Favor Day and you are one of the best grouches that I know! Of course, I mean that in the nicest possible way. Didn’t you notice that you are in a garbage can like Oscar the Grouch? Bahahaha! ”
Bentley: “You cut me to the quick! I’ll have you know that Basset Hounds are considered one of the mellowest of all dog breeds. Now scram and let me get back to my nap…unless you have cake because everybody has time for that!”
