Monday Musings ~ August 21, 2023

The Mom: Hey Elsa, you ever wonder how things would be if  our roles were reversed?

Elsa: Wait…what? You mean you’re the Master? Nah, nah, nah…I’m not sure what kind of drugs you’re on Mom, but you need to detox. We both know who runs things. Thumb or no thumb, notwithstanding.


The Mom: Sigh. What can you do when you live with a Ninja?

Here’s hoping all the roles in your household are clearly defined and where appropriate, the detox goes well this week. Happy Monday.

Live, love, bark! 🐾

  1. We had a hitch last week where NO ONE was listening to me. Things have settled back, though, with the pups allowing me to believe I’m still in charge. Detox?

  2. Dalton would surely oust the Dad…if he really was in charge…hah!
    He still growls at him, even if he just walks past…and sometimes hackles are UP. Poor dog with all of his baggage, I wish he would let someone else be in charge of all that heavy duty baggage…he wold benefit from a light load.

    That was a cute cartoon!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. Sweet Dalton…Elsa being a puppy mill survivor has her baggage but is {mostly} aloof. I had hoped she would have changed by now but alas, she just didn’t get socialized as a puppy. Still she’s come a long ways in the nearly 7 years she’s been with me. I let her get away with thinking she’s in charge so long as she doesn’t bully. Now that she’s a single dog, she’s kind of morphed into a new dog as she adapts to it. I think of her as a bit of a work in progress kind of dog. 😉

  3. PEANUTSS my all-time FAVE Comic Monika & Elsa….I used to think I was the Master/Mistress…..
    What I learned is I was 150% WRONG! I only figured that out about 10 years ago….ROFL 🙂
    Who needs thumbs to rule right?
    HAHAHA BellaSita Mum an ***purrss*** BellaDharma

  4. I remember reading a joke some time ago, where a caller phoned and asked to speak to the person who runs the house – so, she handed the phone to her dog.

  5. Yep. Who feeds whom? Who jumps up to open the door when the dog barks? Don’t be so sure about who is the boss.

  6. There was never any doubt about who is in charge of the household here. Zoe has the rest of us running in circles trying to meet her many demands.

  7. Haha!😂 What a funny thought, to think we are actually the Master of our pets. My daughter took her Princess Yorkie out 5x this morning! LOL! Happy Monday!

  8. luckily milo takes turns being in charge. Sometimes on walks he puts his feet down and directs us. But other times he defers to the big dogs… and it’s working for us

  9. You made me laugh out loud. Perception. Love this.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays as usual.

    Have a fabulous day and week, my friend. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Elsa. ♥

    1. As always, Thank you for linking us to your post. You’re too kind. Even she who shall remain nameless approves. LOL Happy Monday, Sandee.

    1. I think that’s likely the case in most households. My some days, I truly have to wonder. 😆

    1. You’re probably right, I’ve just been kidding myself all these years. 😊 Happy Monday, Helen.

Feel free to bark your thoughts...but no growling please.
