Checkers

The whole "dog" thing wasn't working out,
so I got this as a replacement.
Your picture's on the other side.

Thanks, Karen!

Oh no! I wonder where Checkers is going to banish us to!

Or, is it simply that one day, we'll wake up two-dimensional, and find ourselves on the reverse side of a cushion?

Also, it's worth noting that Checkers would rather see the dog side of the cushion than the hoomin side.

This is not surprising when you remember that at least dogs are furry and have long ears and tails. Hoomins are just... malformed!

A dear friend tells me that a lovely, well vetted woman adopted a rabbit from their shelter. Against all better judgement she wanted to call her Fluffy. Then came the day when Fluffy started chasing the family collie. From then on Fluffy was "Rambo." The only time I have ever considered putting pen to paper was the thought of authoring "From Fluffy to Rambo: One Bunny's Journey."

When I saw the name "Checkers" my brain immediately heard Richard Nixon giving his "Checkers" speech...hmmmm...I much prefer checkered bunnies!

Nice bunny. Nice bunny .....

(Photo reminds me of the old saw - "Where does Checkers sit? Where ever Checkers wants!")

I really want to ask Checkers what happened to the dog, but I'm afraid the same fate will be visited upon my personage, so best keep a low profile and quietly continue peeling raisins to order.

Sounds like Checkers is living in a smart house with automated systems and no longer requires an actual human, just the occasional virtual one.

@anonymous. That is hysterical. I want to read that book--even if it's fiction!

@Fleetie: You make a good point about dogs being better looking than hoomins. All that ugly bare skin...EWWWWW! We look like we have mange!

And so's you won't miss the cat either, I left some poops and shredded phone book behind the sofa to simulate hairballs.

No need to thank me. I've done too much already.

Fleetie said...

Ewww! Nobun wants to look at mangy hoomin beans!

@Tiberia: There has been so much discussion of ugly hoomin beans on comments posted to Checkers, I think you better have a talk with that sweet baby of yours. It's the ear talk. Even if her ears make her look fat, she isn't an ugly bean.

@6Rabbits: Your only chance of reading it is to write it. Six rabbits sound like you might have all the the background info and experience required. I'm sure if anything extra were needed or would be helpful, you would find it graciously offered by the DR community. I've heard of a bunny rescue group that knits scarves for their contributors and volulteers, explaing that their bunnies knitted because they could not be trusted with the paints for Easter eggs, being more the paint ball gun type of bunns. Good Luck, er, with the disapproval and the book.

I'm wondering what Checkers has done to the human side of the pillow that necessitates its being turned over and kept out of sight. Scary.

That label won't last long.
