The kids and I witnessed the funniest thing last night. I sure wish I had the camcorder charged up so I could have caught it on video because it was a classic!
The dog was standing by the garbage can and was watching to see if anyone was looking so he could try to sneak his nose under the lid and push it off the can to get in the garbage. I told Scout (dog) to get away from there and he slunk over and plopped himself down right in front of me in my chair with his head between his paws giving me this look with his big brown eyes of "you won't let me have any fun." He had also laid right down next to our 19 pound Maine Coon cat named Addie who was in the process of giving herself a cleaning. There's the cat with a hind leg in the air and you should have seen the look she was giving the dog! The kids and I are all watching now and Scout is oblivious. You can tell Addie is thinking "What on earth makes you think I want you anywhere near me??" You would really understand this if you've seen how often the dog thinks the cats are his personal toys and entertainment.
Well, Addie is not entertained! While we are watching, she, just like a snake striking, opens her mouth and nips the dog squarely on the butt! The dog's head shot up and he's looking around with a "WHAT?!" expression on his face. The kids and I are just rolling with laughter and I'm crying because it was so darn funny! The cat then gets up and with her tail in the air walks off like "I took care of him! Serves him right for invading my space. Stupid dog."
