Thanksgiving Part 2: Guest Bloggers Buddy and Benji
BUDDY: Hi, we decided to tell you a little about what Thanksgiving was REALLY like, before Biggie comes back and spoils it with more pictures of himself...
BENJI: ...acting all cute and stuff, like he wasn't this big galumphing dork of a puppy who just pestered us all the time!
BUDDY: Benji! That is so not fair! Biggie was cute; he was just a little... er... energetic. You didn't have to bark at him so much.
BENJI: My couch is just that. MY couch. Mine.
BUDDY: In case you couldn't tell, Benji's the grouchy one -
BUDDY: --and I'm the more cheerful one. We're both Shi-tzu-poos (I know, I know, I've heard it before) but we have very different personalities. We do both bark, ...
BENJI: the home must be defended!
BUDDY: But all we do is bark.
BENJI: I'd just bark them all away. You know that.
BUDDY: A lot of good our barking did to chase that Big puppy away.
BENJI: Well he's not here now, is he?
BUDDY: I don't think our barking had anything to do with that. I think his mommy and daddy took him home.
BENJI: Nah, I barked them all away too.
BUDDY: Yeah, whatever.
BENJI: Hey, you didn’t have a big spongy nose all up your business the whole time! I didn’t get a moment’s peace. He kept wanting to smell me, to see what was going on. I swear, if I have to hear, “Whatchoo doing? Can I see? Can I play? Whatchoo doing? Whatchoo doing? Can I join too, please please please!” one more time, I'm gonna blow!
BUDDY (aside): I guess now would not be the time to spring the Huckleberry surprise on him…
BENJI: I heard that! What’s Hucklebeary surprise? I loves surprises as long as they are tasty. Huckleberry sounds tasty!
BUDDY: Huckleberry is, like, our cousin. Or maybe our nephew. Tyler’s been cheating on us and now he has another pup to cuddle. And I heard that Huck likes to play chase like Biggie.
BENJI: Oh no, oh no! I will just bark him away!
BUDDY: He might take all our toys like Biggie did.
BENJI: That’s ok as long as Huck brings us special gifts and treats. We’re easily bribed.
BUDDY: Actually, even if Huck’s mom and dad throw a stick for us once in a while, we’d probably be pretty happy.
BENJI: And besides, anything is better than 70 pounds of rambunctious puppy.
