Hey All.

Do ya all have rules at your house?  I have a few rules here at my house.  I think I am pretty blessed that I DON'T have rules like, "No dogs on the furniture", "No dogs on the bed", "No dogs on laps".  I get to sleep on the bed and lay and sit on the couch and even sit on my momma's lap whenever I want.  Yea life is good.  Momma does have a few rules, like this one: "No chewing your dental bone (or any other bone) on the couch.

Technically I am not on the couch.   

Again I am not on the couch.  I thought I would give the momma that "I love you" look to see how far I could get with my dental bone.

"Buddy you are not supposed to chew your bone on the couch."

"Momma I am NOT chewing my bone on the couch.  I am "holding" my bone on your knee."
"Really Bud?  It's a fine line your trying to cross."

"Buddy are you chewing your bone on the...."
"No, no momma, I am..... I'm... I'm saying a little prayer for all the pups who don't have a bone to chew on."

"Don't ya think it is sad that there are pups and dogs out there who don't have a bone to chew on?  Ohhhhh it just makes me so sad. 
"Yes it is a sad thing Buddy Boo.  Oh and don't think I don't know you just dropped your bone on the floor.... where you should be chewing it."

If I close my eyes then she can't see me...right?

"Oh hi momma.  Is the arm of the couch apart of the "No Chew Zone"?

Ya know what friends?  I think rules are meant to be broken.  More importantly I think it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.  And after all it is my dental bone so really I am doing very important work to keep my teeths all clean and tarter free.  I mean if my momma can floss while on the couch then I can chew my dental bone.  When I told her that she just rolled her eyes.


  1. You know your mom will probably give in to your cute face. Keep pushing Buddy.

  2. You have me giggling here, Buddy! We have a no furniture rule in our house... which our yellow lab started breaking about 87 years ago, and R saw him do it... and now R sneaks in the same way as our wonderful yellow lab did. It's actually a great memory and I like seeing R emulate our angel dog. Butt, don't tell R that!!!!

  3. Your post came at the perfect moment, right when I needed a smile. Buddy you are so cute! (And I would have given in to your adorable reasoning too!)

  4. We don't have many rules here....but we do have the same "no bone on the couch" rule. What we want to know is why can our Mama eat on the couch, but we can't chew?? No fair!!

  10. Well, I don't think you really are on the couch, but I agree about the forgiveness versus permission thing.

  11. Buddy we agree that RULES are fur... Testing at the VERY least... and BREAKING whenEVER Pawsible... GO FUR it Fella.... GO FUR IT...

  12. We are constantly pushing the rules. However, we don't have one about bones on couches. Mom has a thing about us chewing paper though.

  13. The only rule I have, really, is that I am only allowed on my couch and not on the others. I don't mind as I love my couch and #1 often sits on it with me, so she can give me cuddles.Oh, I am not allowed on the bed either because that is for the kitties and there wouldn't be enough room for me too, but my bed is just next to hers and she can reach down and pet me anytime.


  14. Oh my, mom is cracking up! You are pressing your luck

  15. I think your interpretations sound very reasonable!

  16. I think your interpretations sound very reasonable!

  17. Did your mom negotiate these rules with you? We think not!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  18. You make an excellent case as far as we're concerned, Buddy, but then as Siberian Huskies it is our duty to push our bipeds as far as we can. It's in our rule book.
    So, yeah. Speaking of rules, we have all sorts of CRAZY ones around here. My favorite one is "no Siberians on the sitzbank". Ha roo roo roo, oh, that's a great one, isn't it? Puh-lease. The sitzbank was MADE for Siberians!
    Crazy bipeds. Crazy rules. Crazy, crazy, cray-zee!
    Yours sincerely,
