A Letter of Apology...

To Whom It May Concern,
I am deeply sorry that my friend Katra and I have been at it again. It seems that, when we are left alone together, we bounce ideas off one another until we come up with the best idea yet. I understand that you may disagree with my thinking on this. But, we have done playing. We have romped. We have tugged. We have spun in circles. But, as we grow up, we have felt like we need to expand our horizons. We've been chatting about it for a while. Raiding the crock was fun. Sorting the trash was even more fun. But, today was the best idea we have had yet.

Dagan standing behind Katra, who is sitting, both of their noses are caked with dried flour-glue, and their bodies are sprinkled with flour spots 10 pounds of flour makes a LOT of fun! First, we painted the pantry floor with it, then into the spare room and into the kitchen. Hey, we were nice enough to leave paw prints where ever we went so it was easy to see where cleaning was needed. Then there was the long jump competition - jumping across the bathroom floor (not leaving a single sprinkle of flour) onto the brown bath mat. Flour paw prints made it easy to see that I had won! Did you know that dog drool helps flour turn to glue?!?! Oh yeah, of course you do. You had to do the clean up. Sorry about that! But just think, now your carpet is vacuumed and almost all the hardwood in the house has been swept, scrubbed and steamed to a shiny clean. That wouldn't have happened today without our help, right??

I must admit, the whole thing was pretty tiring. (Especially that part when Katra and I got locked outside while the cleaning started). It took a lot of stamina to spread the flour all the way to the front door. Our paws are really quite small in comparison to the amount of floor we covered. It was good to be able to take a rest once all our handy work was taken care of.

So, I am sorry that we got bored with the same old, same old and came up with a new way to have some fun. We will attempt to find an activity that requires less cleaning on your part next time. We promise.


PS That flour sits like a rock in the gut and makes it tough to get up and heft yourself out of the car. Thought you should know that, just in case you get a hankering to consume large quantities of flour.

  1. Hahaha, this is great. A long-time reader, first-time commenter. Oh man.

  2. Dagan, you are not supposed to make trouble like that! Of course that is what your mother would probably do in similar circumstances.

  3. Too funny! You need dog locks these days forget about
    Kids locks! Boy they like mischief! However, it still
    Is hilarious what they get into, but flour, who knows!
    Dagan remember all That hair last night? You don't r
    want to getshaved do you?! Lol

  4. Dagan, most dogs only get the usual peanut butter kong or a bone of some sort to keep them busy while their humans are gone. But lucky you and Katra get a whole bag of flour! You deserve a gold medal for your Gold Medal--or perhaps it was Pillsbury or even King Arthur?

  5. Oh Dagan,I know that sometimes it is ok to act first and beg forgiveness later..... but I'm not sure that you should embrace that theory. Believe me when I listen to my tail it gets me into lots of trouble and some times all the cuteness in the world won't help.

    But I do it anyway! who would turn down a good time! Good on ya!

  6. Adorable! It's moments like this that, although frustrating at the time, are amazing memories you'll hold dear forever!
