Here's one for all you Bendrix fans. Bendrix started the New Year with a bang. After all the guests left, mommy and daddy put away all the leftover food, shut the Mancave door (to keep me from eating confetti and stuff) and went to bed. About 8:30am Bendrix got hungry and woke mommy up. She got up, fed us stinky goodness and went back to sleep on the couch. Well, Bendrix wanted to play but mommy fell back to sleep. He got bored. Then he smelled it. Salt. Yup, we looooooove licking salt off stuff.
My beans had left the crackers on mommy's pretty glass cheese and cracker tray (no cheese tho - drat) on the counter. Well, Bendrix got up where we aren't allowed and started licking the salt off. Everytime he'd lick the platter would scoot. Mommy kinda woke up and said "Hey, what are you doing over there?" Then, CRASH! Yup, that platter scooted right off the counter...with a little help...and shattered all over the floor. Daddy heard it in the bedroom and both beans came running. By then I was hiding under the table like "Wasn't me".
There are no pictures because little shards of glass were everywhere and the beans needed to keep Bendrix from trying to get to the remaining crackers on the floor and clean up the mess (all while very "sleepy"). Mommy gave us a stern talking to and then we had to have our paws inspected. All clear, no cuts.
Don't worry, all was forgiven even tho mommy is sad about her pretty platter.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing. Football and naps with daddy. I hope this is what the rest of the year will be like.
I hope you all have a happy, healthy 2009! Bendrix likes Max's interpretation have "the happiest heathenist New Year." ha ha ha
Mommy is sad because her University of Cincinnati Bearcats lost last night, but she is very proud of them and can't wait for next season. Thanks for this good one guys!
I am worried because I have not heard from my dear Brandi and her mommy Carol. Does anyone have their phone number? My mommy's cell phone SIM card died last month and she lost all her saved numbers including that one.
On a very sad note, my dear friend Fat Cat Muffin's Grammy has passed away. He and his mommy were very close and lived together. Please keep them in your thougths and prayers.
