Frankie’s Monday Greeting!


Smile! Monday just means that it is a start of another set of adventures.

For those of you who say that it is easy being happy about Monday if you are a dog, Frankie would like to point out the following facts:

1 – He has a demanding boss in Queen Natasha the Evil who will chew him out if he does anything wrong.

2 – He has a to do list to get done every day (wrestling with Cheoah, eating, sleeping).

3 – He has to check his pee mail frequently.

4 – He has committee meetings several times a day where everyone talks (also known as group howls).

5 – He has obnoxious co-workers who just want to talk all day (Qannik is quite the motor mouth).

6 – Sometimes things get boring and you just want to take a nap.

7 – He doesn’t get as many meal breaks during the day as he would prefer.

8 – Sometimes, the boss changes the rules just because she can.

Isn’t that just like your Monday?

    Our Mom is retired, too, so one day is pretty much like another around our house, but most of Frankie’s list applies here, as well. (Ice ‘n Ayla)

    My Mom is retired so she no longer has to get up and go to work on Monday. She likes it this way too.

    She says she is the boss of me and Zkhat but she doesn’t say boss, she says she is the Benevolent Dictator. She is bossy as far as I am concerned and Zkhat pays no mind at all to what she says. And so it goes!

    Sounds like Mom’s day – except for the co-workers who want to talk all the time. Since Mom is in a Nerdy Occupation, they stick her in a closet and don’t let her out to talk to people unless she’s in a white coat. (We’re uncertain as to whether that white coat has arms that wrap in the back or not – Mom’s not saying, but we think it probably does!)

    Oh gosh, yes! Although, he forgot the commute and rush hour traffic!

    Oh Dog! Monday is no joke!

    Yep! Pretty close to my Monday here! It’ll be over soon, Frankie!
