Who We Are

The Ottoman. Dad's Ottoman. My Ottoman.

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  So there I was the other day, just enjoying myself, when Mom came in and asked me what I was doing.

"I'm getting a neck massage from Dad; what are you doing?"

Then she "reminded" me I'm not allowed on the ottoman.

"I'm not technically 'on' it, I'm leaning against it."

I mean, seriously.  How many times do I have to explain that?  She insisted there was still a "No Sibes On The Furniture" (except for the bed) rule in place.

"Yeahhhhh, whatevs."

Dad doesn't mind. And it's HIS ottoman.  Which means it's my ottoman ... at least when Mom's not looking.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Ha! WE think your arguments were purrfect and should be the last woof on the subject. Sadly, if we know Moms - and we do! - this won't be the end of it.

  2. Haha you need the ottoman!

  3. Ciara does that to Dad when he is sitting on the sofa - but her paws are on the sofa since Dad doesnt have an ottoman. Tell Mom to just throw a towel or blanket over the top of that ottoman and then it will be sibe furproof:)

  4. Oh dear me there is no such rule here...'cause the only time I don't get on something is WHEN I DON'T want to be on it...or to tie bricks to my feets....
    Maggie I agree leaning is not the same as being on something.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. YOU are so VERY MUCH CORRECT Maggie. Just sayin... OMD you got a Massage??? Where does the LINE form???

  6. It's totally not your fault if your mum and dad can't agree on something Mags!

  7. I think you should be a LAWYER, Mags. Your arguments make pawfect sense to us! Sheesh. Moms.

  8. We think this all needs discussed and renegotiated. Your mom seems to think it is a black and white issue!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  9. We do have to agree that you are not REALLY on the ottoman, Maggie. You sorta are just leaning.

  10. ROFL What Loves! Whatevs! Great Response! Rocky and Mati and now Rocky II know that device as the "OttoDog". hmmm

  11. Awwww....but it looks so nice against your fur! DakotasDen

  12. Moms are party poopers who just like to think they are in charge. Daddies and us know the truth don't we Maggie?

  13. We think you are just checking to make sure it is safe for feet. It really is a public service.

  14. We think Daddy's get the final say, right Maggie?? Ummmm, don't tell our Mama we said that...ok??

  15. It all seems perfectly logical to me.

  16. The peeps did try the no pups on the cushions rule here......I ignored that one as well, as you frequently see!
    And I totally agree...yous not ON the ottoman, yous LEANING on it....is that in the rule book?

  17. We have the same rules in our house and think it's very unfair that the humans get to sit and lay on the other furniture but we don't. At least we do get to sleep in the big bed all we want.
