Oh, The Pawsibilites

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  It’s Monday.  I hate to break it to you folks.  But I am a Sheriff and I always tell the truth.  Nothin but the truth.

This weekend was a bit of a ruff one.  My Deputy Digby Pancake has been having a bout of aching bones. His hips are a bit out of line, just like his attitude. So due to the bad weather and the Deputy’s sick time, we stayed around the beach house a bit.  I’m not complaining.  Actually, I am.  I get bored not traveling so I decided to make better use of my time. I arrested all the fish in the sea, the dolphins in the Gulf Of Mexico, and the pelicans. That was just Saturday. When Sunday came along, I arrested the egrets, the rain again and the cold weather.  If it’s snowing where you live, I apawlogize for that, but it’s not my jurisdiction.

All that arresting got me to thinking.  I was forced to slow down a bit and gander at the ocean in our backyard. Although there was a bit of downtime for me as Sheriff, it gave me time to prepare my agenda for this week.  Now it’s Monday.  So sit down, listen up and let’s get some things straight.

First off, I saw what you did on Friday night and you are arrested.  Second, I will let you off on probation today under one circumstance.  That is that you recognize that your week is full of pawsibilities.  You have a clean slate, a full week to work with here.  Monday is not just a day back to work, but a day to start getting some stuff done! Do you need to clean out your refrigerator?  Don’t call Digby, he is still on sick time.  But get that fridge cleaned out! That ketchup is like 5 years old.  Do you need to wash your car? How about you do that?  Stop looking at it and wash it.  Do you need to return those overdue library books?  You know you aren’t going to read that book on boating around the world.  You have no boat.  Newsflash.

Actually, now that I am thinking about it, you ARE re-arrested.  This is a new concept for me, but my downtime has left me refreshed with many pawsibilites on my horizon.  Happy Monday to you.  I haven’t forgot about Friday night either.

The A-Team

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle.  It’s been a hard week of hiking and snacking and napping.  You would think that it would take a toll on my good looks, all that work.  But nope, it never does.  I just get better with age, rain or shine, pancakes or peanut butter cookies.

So this morning, we were hiking.  We were on the trail, and up walked a big, big dog.  I was super excited of course, because I always am to see new furkids.  But Girl Person thinks it is polite to move off the trail and give people and furkids room, especially if they aren’t the social type.  When they aren’t the social type, I feel like arresting them.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to talk to us?

Anyway.  So this big dog was very friendly and his person asked our Girl Person if we could all say hello.  Uh, yeah! Get ready for the A-Team!  A-Team?  Well, me and Deputy Digby have a routine.  I smell the front, he smells the back and we make our law enforcement presence known. This is a family blog, so let’s just clean this up and tell you that Girl Person calls us the A-Team for a reason folks.  I ain’t gonna elaborate.

Girl Person tells us every single time that we can’t do that, that it is not fair to surround a furkid like that and that unless there is a need for arresting, to give them some space.  Ahh, space is way overrated unless Digby has just rolled in poop.  Then I suppose space is not overrated.

Anyway, this new furkid we met on the trail didn’t seem to mind our greeting.  Girl Person says that maybe the A-Team can just lessen its tactics a bit.  I say “I pity the fool”.  No way Girl Person.  Don’t question the law. Or YOU…are….arrested.

Have a great weekend everyone! Hope to see YOU on the trails!
