Not Sitting On The Ottoman

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie.  Please allow me to run something past you.  The other evening, I did this:

"I'm having a chat with Dad; what are you doing?"

After questioning what I was doing and giving a couple cheers (you know, that "MAGGIEOFFMAGGIE!" cheer), my mom said, "Maggie! You are NOT allowed to sit on the ottoman!"

Oh.  Right.  Not allowed to sit on the ottoman.  So I did this:

"Oh, yeah.  Nice view of the TV up here!"

I'm fairly certain I deserve a treat, aren't you?  I can't wait for my mentor, Mr. Teddy Westlife, to weigh in on this one!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. BRAVO BRAVO Maggie, I finks you deserve a hug and kiss and A TREAT!!! I often listen the same as you do to my momma and daddy and they reward me by taking me down off the chair, couch, or their lap, I nevers gonna understand them.

  2. You know - you just fight natural instinct - Sibs allows like the high ground :)

  3. Maggie - You are soooooooooo smart! I think dat you deserve a whole bag of treats! Just sayin.

  4. Dear Maggie, If you were neighbors, Hunter would invite you over to sit on his ottoman. Yes, he has his own that overlooks the street; his papa bought it for him. Now when he has his peeps over(Lily and Petrol)they all sit guarding the house. It must be a special piece of furniture if your mom won't let you on it.

  5. Like any good Siberian, you listened to the human request, interpreted it, and applied Siberian logic. We applaud you!

    Is that HULA application completed yet?

  6. Yes Maggie... when will you be completing the HULA application? We fully expect your membership to slide through with no problems, especially after the ottoman incident... we know just how strict your Human Woman is about the furniture thing.


  7. As the british would say----Brilliant!

  8. Higher ground is where you belong MT. You'd never have found Margaret on the floor would you now? Just tell your peeps you are in your rightful place up high. Treats all round we say. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Good thing you didn't sit on that ottoman Maggie! Your mom should be very proud of you!

  10. Good girl, BOL

  13. You are clearly not sitting on the ottoman. Your mom needs to give you several treats immediately.

    Judge's decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

  14. Rules were meant to be broken....especially when chatting with Daddys!

  15. You did a "down" before she even asked! We definitely think you deserve many treats for that, Maggie!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  16. Bravo! You did a grreat job. Obviously you can't SIT on the ottoman, because it makes you too tall and they can't see over you. You found the pawfect solution.
