Pretty Is As Pretty DOES!

Mom says Airedale Terriers are better known as contrarians. For instance, Maggie's nickname around here is "Princess". Because she's one of those grrrls who thinks everything in the House belongs to her and she goes to extreme leaps and bounds and boo-boos to make sure everyone else knows it too. It’s certainly not because she is graceful or kind or generous or gentle or all the luverly things princesses are sposed to be. Now, don't get me wrong: she can be dainty when she wants to be. With Maggie, though, being dainty and being stealthy go paw in paw.

Oh, you want an example? OKAY! Last night Mom and Dad and Second Daughter and the Grandkids had pizza for supper. They ate every piece except for some bits that stuck to the top of the pizza boxes. Then they settled down to watch a Bigfoot program Dad had recorded on the magic box that sits on top of the big window-thing that shows flat pictures. It was while they were watching the latest and greatest Bigfoot hunt that Maggie went into Airedale Terrier stealth mode.


Now, if that had been me sneaking that pizza box off the table, what do you think would have happened? Someone woulda bonked me on the haid with that pizza box, that’s what. But guess what happened instead?

Second Daughter rolled her eyes. The Grandkids giggled. Dad shook his head.
AND: Mom let Maggie keep the box!

I am not AAARROOOING.

Sorry you missed out on the pizza box though. Maybe steak tonight? There's always a reason ;)

Awww, Duke, that is so wrong! Believe me, I UNDERSTAND! When it comes to that Calvin the small, he can get away with pizza boxes, why, he could pee and poo on the pizza and mom would just say, "Oh, Cal!" Me? ssssssssssh! "YUM-YUM, I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THAT!" But I would and I will. You have inspired me, Duke, think we're a good pair: Ministers of Mayhem we shall be known as! Ministers of Mayhem.
What is stealth?

I'm certain the difference in treatment, is because Mom knows you are of higher intelligence. Yeah, let's use that!
