I have been framed by the fish.

My dad is under the impression that somehow, I jumped on top of his desk, opened two fish food containers with screw-top lids, and ate all the fish food.

Now, I ask you, why would I eat fish food? I am not a fish. Those bite marks are clearly from the clownfish. Obviously, the fish jumped out of their tank and emptied the containers, then jumped back in.

My dad has been taking me to work this week, and yesterday I went to a (BORING) marketing meeting. He has two fun offices, one with lots of stairs, and one with a big long hallway. It's really fun to run around there. Back when we lived in New Hampshire, our apartment door opened up into a huge long hallway, and after I had a bath, I would run up and down the hall faster than lightning! There were two little boys who lived down the hall from us, and when they heard my paws pounding, they would stick their heads out the door. They had just moved to America and they had cute little accents - they would always cheer me on: "GO Linny GOOOO!" If I tried to go over and say hi to them, they were kind of afraid of me, so I just kept doing laps, and they kept cheering for me. I miss those boys and my nice long hallway!

Thank you to my friends Katie and Zorra and Sam for the Toadally Awesome award! They have a really important health message for your female people on their blog today, so go check it out!

Clown fish are the WORST. They are sneaky! I am sure that THEY ate the food. I mean, why would YOU eat fish food?!! It is completely unappetizing! You better watch out for those fish. They are trying to frame you.

You better contact some forensic CSI type of dogs to check it out and clear your name.

I bet that meeting was so so so booooring! It's even nothing about dogs! But sooo kewl that you're allowed in the office. I love the loooong corridors too! I've never lived in an apartment before but we went to A'Famosa in Selangor & we stayed in a Condotel. The corridor was sooo fun & slippery! When we barked, it was sooo loud!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Girasol said...

I think that fish frame you because he wants you out of the picture so he can take over your blog.
Keep and eye on that fish!
That was nice of your dad to take you to the office.

Penny & Poppy said...

Bad, bad fishies! We know you would never eat fishie food. Congratulations on your award. You totally deserve it!

Poppy & Penny

Jackson said...

Fish food? Never tried it myself but I'm sure it might be quite tasty! Not that you'd know, of course, because you're TOTALLY INNOCENT! J x

William Tell said...

We have a betta named Fluffy, and he is really quite unscrupulous. Really, the fish tales I could tell also...but anyone who looked at your face can tell you are so innocent!

You just can't trust those fish Lenny. Fancy making it look like you did it. That's just not on matie!!!
We like the story of the little boys cheering you on. How cute.

Hugs and tail wags

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Lenny, I love that story about the hallway and the little boys.

I am absolutely certain you have been framed. I can't believe your dad even doubts that for a second.

Cha Cha is probably part Jack Russel, but no one really knows for sure. She is about 45 pounds, so considerably larger than a Jack. Her owner thought she was a Jack when she was a puppy, and then she just kept getting bigger and bigger.

The Jack that is staying with you might be Pitou, which is kind of a term of endearment for a dog ... and apparently, a husband or boyfriend.


Asta said...

Hi Lenny
How was youw week..Did the fish get punished fow fwaming you???
It's so not faiw!!!
Mommi bought some pussy willows today, to help pwetend it's spwing, hehehe
smocchie kisses

Penny & Poppy said...

Hi Lenny, if Winston (or the other pup) comes to live with us, we will change his name to something starting with a P. If it's one of the boys, we are thinking of Peetie like the dog that was on the Little Rascals. We know our doggie won't look anything like the one on the Little Rascals, but that's ok. We are still thinking about it, anyway.
