Who's the biggest April Fool in your house? In mine, outside of The Boss, it would have to be Scooter, seen here in his Joker's hat. The cat checking out the throne is owned by my childhood friend who lives in PA. I thought only dogs liked toilet water?
Scooter is in full April Fool mode and aggravating me daily. I was cleaning up the yard the other day, and he must be on mole patrol, because there are about six holes all over the yard, small in size, but big enough in depth to twist ankles really well. The holes also mean daily dirty toes and foot baths.
Last night when I came home, I let them all out as usual. About 20 minutes later, he wanted to go out again. Then around 4:30 he got me up again to go out. Then around 5, at which time I refused and put him out in the living room. I didn't learn my lesson, becuause when I finally got up and went to let them all out, Zoe and Peanut stopped dead in their tracks right before the back door. There, lying peacefully on the rug by the door, were four, semi-moist dog logs.
Scooter also doesn't like to eat in the morning. I put out the three bowls and Zoe and Peanut eat just fine. But if I walk out of the kitchen, Zoe will follow and Scooter will run over and finish off her food, yet won't eat is own. He'll lay by the bowl to prevent a sneak attack by Peanut, but won't eat. So I end up putting the bowl on the counter. I'll wait an hour or so and try again, and then he'll usually eat.
When it comes to fools, I think dogs are usually more foolish than cats. What do you think? And on a side note, do any of you play any good April Fool's jokes on anyone? I used to get my Mom ALL the time. Or, does anyone play good tricks on you?
