I hate mum & dad!

I was browsing for some photos on the computer & what did I find? Evidence of the fun mum & dad had without me on Christmas Day whilst I was on my sick bed after eating the sock! "We're just popping out" they said. "We won't be long" they said. "We're not up to anything interesting". Fibbers! They went to Aunty Kim & Uncle Charlie's house with Aunty Lucy & Uncle Simon WITHOUT ME! My 3 friends Jamie, Daisy & Paddy the Poodles live there, and I would so loved to have played. Mum said they were just thinking of me being poorly & thought I needed some peace & quiet. Whatever mum, talk to the paw!

Look! Paddy is scoffing MY treats from MY stocking from MY Aunty Clare. Mum took them round as she thought they would give me upset tummy, whereas the Poodles can eat almost anything. Not fair!

And they all got presents. Here's Aunty Kim opening a cute pink poodle. I hope Daisy got her teeth on it.

And Daisy got her own present from MY mum & dad - a pink pig with a tennis ball for a tummy.

Looks like she likes it. Maybe I'll get to play with it sometime if I get to go round to play, sniff.

Jamie is an old man of nearly 15, & he isn't really into toys, so mum got him a HUGE bag of marrowbone chewies. They smelt sooo good when she brought them home for the shop, but try as I might I didn't get to sample one.

This is the present mum & dad got for Paddy. It's called a "Humungatongue". It's a ball with a big tongue attached. Dad was showing him what to do with it. Big mouth!

Looks like Paddy's got his eye on some Christmas dinner.

Mmm, I'm not surprised. That looks delicious. Apart from those scary looking green things, urgh!

Look, they all scoffed so much that they had to sleep it off - piggy wiggies. And they're allowed on the sofa! It's like a poodle bunk bed.

Daisy even got to have a snuggle with Uncle Simon. Bet he was embarrassed when he saw that photo!

And what was yours truly doing while they were all having fun, opening presents & eating delicious dinners - eating a bowl of boring boiled rice that's what. Yum yum.

Even my best Oliver Twist "please sir, can I have some more" look was in vain as there was no-one to appreciate it. Poor, poor me.

I did forgive them eventually, but only after making them feel very guilty.

Mum has finally managed to add the videos of me opening my Christmas presents. Video Egg wouldn't work from dad's laptop for some reason. I think I did pretty well for my first attempt at present unwrapping.

Hey Oscar,
That humungatongue looks real interesting! What a shame that you missed the party! I'm glad you made them feel real guilty! Good boy! I enjoyed your videos. You do a great job ripping off the wrapping paper!

Love ya lots,

I don't ever get to unwrap. I get my pressies in gift bags - I just nose in and pull the stuff out!

You don't really hate mum and dad! They must love you if they got you such neat presents, even if they do feed you rice!

Joe Stains said...

that tongue is funny! but I cant believe you missed out on all the fun times.

you did a good job on those videos!

Boo said...

hey oscar, are you sure this was your first time opening presents? well, you look pretty good in it!

i like the tongue. the other day, i watched this animal planet show called "50 most amazing animal toys ever created" and the tongue was one of it. not sure on what no. though.

mom said she is finding me one - only if there's my size. :-(

I don't know if I completely understand why you were left unnattended with a boring bowl of rice but, if you want I can call the proper authorities.

Just say the word

what grave injustice you've suffered, oscar my friend! the parents, they should know that any party or outing MUST be cancelled or pushed to a more convenient date if the star in the family happens to be feeling 'poorly'. tsk, tsk. le parents muz be punished.

Mean mean humans. Eating the sock was a really bad move wasn't it.
