Yo, we're the Border Collie Bros, Houdini , Smudge , and Squrrl .
Boss introduced us to the Interent Place a while back, and we've been sneaking into it through his LJ, but now we've got our own. We live with Boss and Mrs Boss on teh Ranch with Cows and Goats and Horses and Ras Mewson and teh KittensoftheApoclypse and Meanole Marykitty. Some people think it's really big, and it's not small, but our neighbors Pappa Mike and Spencer Buffalodog have bigger places. We like it, it's ours.
And we talked it over between us, because we aren't philosophers. That's a big word for us. But Boss likes to talk about things with other people, and we know that not everybody is a philosopher, but lots of people use what philosophers think up. And Ms. wedschilde asked a question and we answered, and well, this works for our philosophy. We think.
"Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy. When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. When it's in your best interest, practice obedience. Let others know when they've invaded your territory. Take naps often and stretch before rising. Run, romp and play daily. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm, stop when you are full. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently. Thrive on attention and let people touch you. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. Always give people a friendly greeting; a cold nose in the crotch is effective. On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing or pout. Run right back and make friends. Bond with your pack. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. Always be the first to answer the door bell; you never know when it will be someone for you."
We aren't always here and we tend to mark a lot when we're visiting, but you're welcome to sit for a spell. There's some shade over here by Mamma Mudge's Forever Bed ...
