So Unappreciated

Westie and Basset Hound
Bentley Basset Hound: “Pierre, we are going to have to talk with Mom. This is Pet Appreciation Week and I’m just not feeling very appreciated. Are you?”
Pierre Westie: “Now that you mention it, I barked at a guy riding his scooter by the house today. She did not even say thank you. As a matter of fact, she told me to be quiet!”
Bentley: “It’s obvious that she is not aware of how many killers ride scooters. You know we both offer to let them scratch our bellies when they walk past us. It is a fact that scratching or petting a dog is good for a human’s health. Do they ever say thanks? Nope. It’s like they are doing us a favor.”
Two dogs walking on leashes
Pierre: “We both play with them and chase the toys they throw. It isn’t easy to keep the two of them entertained but I think we do a great job.”
Bentley: “When they ask us if we want to go for a walk, we never say that we are tired or that there is something good on tv. No, we act all excited and take them to get some exercise. We are so selfless.”
Pierre: “Don’t forget the housework. We are constantly scouring the floor for dropped crumbs and the minute we see one, we lick it up. I also sacrifice my dog bed to snuggle with Mom at night. They both love it when I stretch out and take up most of the bed. It’s a hardship that I bear but they don’t appreciate it.”
Bentley: “Here comes Mom. Let me handle this…”
White dog and hound getting belly rubs
Me: “Hey, boys! Let me get some belly rubs on my two favorite fellas. Guess what? It is Pet Appreciation Week, so we got you new treats and ice cream. After that, we are all going to an awesome park Dad and I found. We love both of you so much and appreciate y’all being such good boys.”
Bentley: “Forget what we said! Let’s go get some treats and ice cream. We are the luckiest and most appreciated boys on the Bayou!”

    P.S. Keep up the great work, boyz. No doubt there's plenty more ice cream and toys for you guys.

  7. Bentley and Pierre, you had better be careful - we think your humans are reading your minds:) But if it means treats and belly rubs, then all is good.

  8. I'm pretty sure I'm appreciated! I mean think about all the work I do: barking every time a neighbor slams a car door, barking at passing doggies and humans, barking whenever someone is at the door, barking whenever the mail truck goes by, etc. If not for me, Dad would never know what's going on around here!

  9. Bentley and Pierre it is okey dokey fine that you had that unappreciated conversation in your heads and never had to say it out loud. OMCs you mom gives great belly rubs..
