A license to WHINE!?

My name is Fleur, and I am very important!  I am so important that I wear special tags on my collar.  One tag says that I got a shot at the Vet, one tag has my Mom's name and phone number, and both of these tags give me special privileges!



Exercising sofa privileges


My special privileges include taking over the sofa!  And if you don't understand, I will explain:  I get to live in a motorhome, and a motorhome has a very small number of seats.  In MY motorhome, there is a laz e boy recliner that my Mom sits in, and then there is the sofa.  That's it... no other seats at all unless Mom turns around the driver's seat (when we have a visitor).  So being licensed to take over the sofa is a very important thing!


I'm watching everything that goes on around me!
It's my job to make sure the entire world is behaving as they should.  The cat should be in the sunny windshield, not on the sofa.  If she is on the sofa, it's my job to tell her (in no uncertain terms) that the sofa is MINE.



The cat cannot sit on the sofa at all!


I have to hang over the edge of the sofa to keep my eye on everyone

Once I have messed up the sleeping bag on the sofa enough to drive Mom nuts, then my next job is to hang over the edge of the sofa, and stare at Mom continuously, and to do the special WHINE that I have perfected to make sure that she can't think of anyone but ME!  If she is on the computer, the WHINE is designed to keep her distracted.  If she's watching TV, the WHINE is to make her miss the actor's words.  If Mom is reading, the WHINE is to make her forget the plot of the book.  If Mom is beading or knitting, etc, the WHINE is to make her mess up her project!

The WHINE is my secret weapon to keep Mom's mind on ME!

  1. Good job Fleur! If you train them correctly from the start, you can take humans just about anywhere.

    1. Not Fair! You are going to give Fleur more ideas than she already has!

    1. Judith, you are going to be in trouble if you get TWO greyhounds whining! So far Power is not a whiner, but if he gets it going I'm going to ship his whiner to you!

  4. Fleur, I really believe that you and Flattery might be related! She does that, too. Particularly when she is displeased about something!

    1. Houndstooth, I believe that if Flattery is royal, then we are of course related! However, I believe that Whining should not be used without careful planning! Mom's nerves must be already frazzled or the effect is diminished!

    1. Sue, sh-h-h-h-h! Don't let on to mum that she is well trained, or I will get a dirty look from her!

  6. Not the whine! Especially at 2 in the morning. Maybe if your mom sat next to you on the sofa and read/watch tv? Would that help?

  7. Patty, Joey, and Scout , you are correct in that it has been only a few months since Fleur and Power were allowed on the sofa! However, Miss High and Mighty Whinyness was practicing her art while lying on her dog bed for 10 years before the sofa privileges!

  8. gyeong, I am not a nighttime whiner. I really like my sleep! Only if my bladder is yelling at me, do I whine during the night.
    Now Power is a different story!

  9. I'm too distracted by your auto-tilt solar panels to take Fleur to task. Fleur Honey, name it & claim it! You are the Queen! Sweet & funny post--thank you!
