Double standards

The other night, my folks brought Alice out for a ride in the car, despite the fact that it was raining, and Alice hates the rain.
The sounds of rain pitter-pattering on the window panes just make her freak out. That cowardly girl.

So, in true cowardly-girl fashion, she frantically scratched the back seats in her feeble attempt to stand on hind legs. (She was in the boot, because remember I said my folks bought a new hatchback car and now the new rule is – kids in the boot)
Now let me tell you, if I did anything close to that, I would have been smacked and told to Lie Down and Stay and “Stop distracting me Mavy!”. Hmmph..
Instead, all Alice got was “Hey baby girl dont be scared mama’s just right here in the front alright”

And that’s not all. Somehow, Alice managed to tuck her tummy in and squeeze all the way to the front through just a tiny tiny gap in between the seats, and before the humans know it, she was in the front pasenger seat at mama’s legs!
At that instance mama was still in a reclined position trying to figure out how come there was suddenly silence from the boot when she felt something warm and fuzzy at her feet.

But what injustice! Alice managed to con the humans with her innocent wide-eyed infamous Sheltie look and all she got was “Oh Alice! There you are.. Poor girl. Dont be scared yah? The rain wont come in.”

There was one time I jumped from the boot to the back seat, because in the old car, we kids were used to sitting anywhere we wanted, even on the humans’ laps.
And can you guess what happened? Daddy pulled up at kerb-side at lightning speed and mama got off hurriedly with a frown on her face, opened the door at my side and smacked me on the butt, and trashed me back into the boot, not before bellowing in thunder voice “You stay there ok! Else you clean up the fur!”

Huh… now you see? It’s official. My mama has double standards. And daddy wont even say anything to defend me. If anything, I think he even joined in the scolding. So much for being “best pals, buddies, boyz team” Blah! So you guys from a multi-kid household better start fighting for your rights.

I sure fought for mine, because 2 nights ago I got treated to a 5 course dinner – 1 cup yoghurt as appetiser, and 4 pieces of pork bones, in different shapes.

Australian all natural yoghurt. Yum! Makes mental note to remind humans to top up food bin

Which one is the entrée? *licks*

If only I can convince them that I’m mistreated everyday, so I dont have to do silly tricks like Heel and Stay to get my food anymore!
