Thursday - Assume the Position

Last Friday my daddy got home from being gone for NINE DAYS. I was very happy to see him. I ran to the hallway to greet him as soon as he came in. Then I "assumed the position."


I was even more happy to discover that distance and time did not make him forget what happens when he gets home.



Treats!!! Please note how he didn't even remove his coat before giving me my treat.




PS Mommy is busy with work and stuff (there is a big Fundraiser for the shelter she volunteers at coming up too) that we are slacking off on posting and visiting friends. Mommy's big project - she is the Marketing Manager at a store and they are launching their website for the first time - should be done next week. She has to get all the info to the web builder and then she'll have a break to catch up on other stuff.

Please don't forget us or feel bad if we don't stop by often. Sometimes we can read your bloggies, but not comment!

Oh Hendrix don't worry! We're in the exact same spot as you. The Woman is SUPER busy at the work place and we can't visit as much as we'd like and commenting is hard. Don't worry though, we're all still here when the beans are less busy.

What a good Daddy! Our Daddy hardly ever gives us treats so we are wasting away. Luckily Mommy loves us and gives us treats before she goes to work.

Good job training your Daddy like that! Do not worry about not being around because your Mommy is busy. We totally understand!

Tybalt said...

YAY! I'm glad your daddy is home!

Don't worry, Hendrix/Bendrix . . . we could never forget you!

The Furry Kids said...

You have definitely trained him well!

We've been reading and not commenting so much lately, too. It stinks, doesn't it?

HRH Yao-Lin said...

We understand momma is about to start major study overload for school! As long as you beans have some time for you thats the important part! ~Queen Snickers

Fat Eric said...

Your daddy seems furry furry well trained Hendrix.

I think efurryone's humans are busy at the moment. My mum spends hours doing stuff for school and not nearly enough time giving me scritches. I often have to go and sit on the books she is marking in order to get her attention!!!

PB & J said...

Don't worry Hendrix - our Mommy gets busy sometimes too and we don't get to visit all our friends. We'll be here!

You've got your Daddy very well trained - we've got to work on ours (of course Mommy is already trained up when it comes to treats)!

Princess and Rosemary said...

I am so glad your daddy is home.

Daisy said...

I'm glad your dad came home and remembered the importance of treats! All my treats come from my Mommie. Do not worry, we won't forget you!

Stephanie said...

Hi Hendrix!! Thanks for stopping by our blog to introduce yourself. Wow 9 whole days? We were sad when dour dad just left us for one night. But we've never been away from him before.

We look forward to getting to know you better.

Sophia said...

He is very well trained!

SophieKitty said...

Wow. My mommie takes her coat off before she gives me any eats. And no worries...we won't forget you!

Jimmy Joe said...

Wow, you have a great daddy, to make sure you have your treats before he even takes his coat off. Momma takes forever, peeling off her hat and scarf and coat and boots...
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Ruis said...

Wow!! You have a great daddy, Hendrix! He knows who and what is important!!!

Of course we don't forget you. How dare you think that?! I am bad too! My typist only gives me 1 hour computer time a day and I want to read everycat's blog, but she is a very slowly typist lately.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

It's okay Hendrix, we'z been doing a lot of reading and not commenting too. Mom has been bizzy and dad's not good at dis blog stuff, tho he is gonna do a post fur us soon!

Artsy Catsy said...

Oh, Hendrix, we could never, ever, ever forget you! Even when you're out of sight, you're never out of mind or heart!

Rocky
& your Artsy Catsy friends

P.S. Could you send your Daddy over here to train our mom to do that "treats before coat" thing?

Karen Jo said...

I am so glad that your Daddy came home at last. He was gone a long time. You have him very well trained to pet you and give you your treats before he even takes his coat off. Don't worry, I am very busy myself these days and don't get to do all the visiting I would like. I won't forget you.

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Mr Hendrix!!!! We iz NOT gonna forgets you. I have to say it looks likes a good ting dat your dad gots home to help you out. Deze momeez deze days!!! What are we gonna do wit 'em!!!

michico*Adan said...

Hendrix you have a great dad.
Michico went home but always remove her coat and have 1 cookie first, then taking care of my treat~~~~
She is mean~~~~

I will make her know I am angry with that, and request her to do just like your daddy treat you!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Hendrix, we are glad that your dad is home and that he knows you to treat you properly! We hope that everything goes well for your mom. Don't worry, we won't forget you!

Kaz's Cats said...

Hendrix, you've got your daddy very well trained. I (Gypsy) love how you 'assume the position' with your dad and he knows exactly what he has to do. I like to flop down near my mom and get her to give me scritches soon after she gets home.

We're very impressed Hendrix - it's easy to see who's in charge at your place,

Hi there mr hendrix! Toa nswer your question - yes, you did read about me in a dryer. i got stuck inside once when the male slave put the dryer on and heard it bang and immediately switched it off and then out I crawled - unscathed, unshaken - just tired as I had been having a nice nap.This cause MAJOR ructions in our house!

I think Yao-Lin posted about it a while back!

Luf n hugs

We are happy that your daddy didn't forget what to do when he gets home. It is very cold here today, only 1 degree outside, it's a good day for snuggling in the blankets.

Parker said...

My mom wanted to tell your mom: New website--GAA! Nervewracking, isn't it? (My mom builds web apps.)

And I wanted to say how nice your daddy is for taking care of your needs right off!
