Jackpot! (Almost)

Hi Everybuddy -

It was almost a day that we were able to take advantage of Mom. Note the operative word here is almost. It's not everyday that Mom slips up and makes it easy for us to get into trouble. Usually it requires a great deal of effort on our part. She was busy wrapping presents under our supervision........

"Ummm...that bow isn't quite in the middle Mom"

........... when all of a sudden she walked away and left something ON THE FLOOR! WOOHOO......JACKPOT! She left the trash can on the floor....within a Siberian's reach! Need I elaborate on what happened next? I did what any respectable Siberian would do. Inspect and redistribute the contents:

Mom! Would that be a box of Chocolate Covered Cherries???! :

Mom! You ate them all! Every last one of em! :

She's so boring. The least she could have done is left something interesting in the trash can. I think I'll take a nap and rest up for her next mistake. Tis the season!

Pee S: Don't forget to cast your vote for our Christmas Trivia Question found on the right sidebar. Only 4 more days left!

Oh cool! A trash can is a good find. Your mom could have at least left a cherry for you. She's just supposed to suck off the chocolate and leave the cherry for a boy named Echo.

Don't worry Echo, she's bound to slip up again. She's only human, after all.

It is our job to remind the humans that the rules are consistent and they must never cross the line. Even a little. Great job in human training.

Hi, Echo!
No cherries for you?? She deserved that happenend with the trash can!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Fabulous work you two!!! It's always so much fun when the humans make mistakes that benefit US!!

That trash had such potential. We'll be needing to scold your parents for not leaving more nibbles. We know you were really sorting out the recycling from the trash.

Good green garbage sorters!

The trash is a fun thing to get into. My latest trick was to make 2holes in my humans' Christmas tree.
